Hot Or Not? Nick Lachey Rates His Own Throwback Thursday Pictures | TODAY

Looking back at the 1990s, it’s obvious some fashion trends have changed (for the better). Nick Lachey, a guest co-host on The Take, tells TODAY he did not make all of his wardrobe decisions during his days in chart-topping boy band 98 Degrees. Now he revisits the era to rate his ’90s outfits as “hot” (literally, in one case) or “not.”

Nick & Drew Ugly Sweater Throwback


Wearing horrible knitwear for family photographs is a rite of passage for many.
And it certainly was in the Lachey household after 98 Degrees star Nick shared an adorable flashback picture of himself and his little brother Drew on social media on Thursday.
The siblings seemed to be having a great time in their grotesque jumpers, even if his future bandmate looked just a tad more enthusiastic during the toe-curling affair.

Rainbow coalition: Nick Lacey and his brother Drew donned ugly sweaters in an hilarious snap he posted on Instagram on Thursday
Nick, 43, could not resist poking fun at the sickening sweaters, saying on Instagram: '#TBT it's Holiday sweater time! 
'@thedrewlachey & I apparently getting ready for our first ugly sweater party! #reallymom.'

Thankfully Nick and his 40-year-old brother, who won the second season of Dancing With The Stars, continued their love of awful clothing well into their boyband career, where they donned a series of embarrassing outfits during the group's late 90s heydey.
Indeed they have continued to wear ridiculous ensembles to the current day, wearing bulletproof vests and combat trousers during a performance in Virginia back in July.

All grown up: Nick and Drew making a rare appearance rogether in agreeable suits
Suit you sir: He donned a more traditional outfit when he attended the Grammys this year
The fashion odyssey continues: Nick and Drew indulged in their love of ugly ensembles during their late 90s run in 98 Degrees
No doubt Jessica Simpson's former husband is planning to continue the family tradition with his rapidly expanding brood of two children. 
His current wife Vanessa had shared back in September that she was expecting her third child with Nick, who she married in 2011.
They also share four-year-old son Camden and one-year-old daughter Brooklyn. The couple is expecting their third child in Spring 2017.
She joked about their current predicament during a funfair visit last month when she posted on Instagram: 'Thank You @Disneyland for a magical day!!! The "5" of us had a blast! Can't wait to take littlest Lachey next time!'

Flogging a dead horse: Nick and the boys raked in the cash when they performed in their latest awful outfits in Virginia back in July
No wonder he took part: Drew got to indulge in his love of hideous clothing on his way to winning season two of Dancing With The Stars

Donnie Wahlberg, Nick Lachey Producing Boy Band Comedy 'Encore' for CBS


Doug Ellin Donnie Wahlberg Nick Lachey
Donnie Wahlberg and Nick Lachey have teamed with “Entourage’s” Doug Ellin to produce a comedy for CBS about members of a boy band who reunite 20 years later.
“Encore” hails from CBS Television Studios and the Tannenbaum Co. The single-camera project is in the early stage of development.
Wahlberg and Lachey are intimately familiar with the material. Wahlberg is a member of the pop group New Kids on the Block, which came to prominence in the late 1980s. Lachey was a member of 98 Degrees, which was active in the late-1990s and early 2000s. Wahlberg and Lachey have become friendly after spending time touring together in 2013. The inspiration for the show came when the two compared notes about how different their lives are today as grown men with children than in their pop star heydays.
Wahlberg is already in the CBS family as a co-star of police drama “Blue Bloods.” He also exec producers the reality series “Rock This Boat,” about obsessive NKOTB fans, for CBS’ Pop cabler. And he’s an exec producer on the A&E Network series “Wahlburgers,” about his family’s burger joint in Boston.
Family ties also helped bring Ellin into the picture for “Encore.” The showrunner created and exec produced the 2004-2011 HBO series “Entourage” that was inspired by the Hollywood experiences of his younger brother, Mark Wahlberg.
Ellin is penning the script for “Encore” and exec producing with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (“Two and a Half Men”), Wahlberg, Lachey and Jonathan Baruch. Andrew Moncrief of Ellin’s Halyard Park banner will serve as a producer.
Ellin’s recent projects include ESPN’s “30 for 30: When the Garden Was Eden” doc and “Bad Santa 2,” which is set for release on Nov. 23. He also wrote and directed the 2015 “Entourage” feature.

A 98 Degrees residency on the Strip? Jeff Timmons is working on it



**Jeff Timmons is here. having just wrapped a tour with 98 Degrees. With his boy-band contemporaries Backstreet Boyshaving landed an 18-show residency at Axis beginning in March, Timmons has been exploring some shows for 98 Degrees on the Strip.
“I am really close friends with those guys (in Backstreet) and have been talking about it,” Timmons after he ran the course. “I don’t know that we’d do 18 dates, but a shorter residency is possible. There is some talk about us doing that.”
Timmons is also still pushing his male revue, “Men of the Strip,” which he premiered in March 2014 at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. He’s hoping for a 2017 opening for that show, which would compete with another new male revue, “Magic Mike Live,” in development at the Hard Rock Hotel.
What we are seeing with this oiled-down, muscled-up productions is a sub-trend in VegasVille: As many different styles of productions open and close, male revues continue to do solid business — led by “Chippendales” at the Rio and “Thunder from Down Under” at Excalibur.

98 Degrees, O-Town, Dream give nostalgic fans what they want on a humid night in Tuscaloosa


The My2K Tour pumped the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater with a heap of nostalgia in hopes of transporting fans about 15 years into the not-too-distant past Thursday night.
As hot and humid as ever in the venue, doors opened around 7 p.m. to a modest-enough crowd that the Amp closed off its entire upper section.
But about halfway through the show, the lower pit filled just about to its capacity, and fans of all four acts stood ready to rock and swoon their night away.
An impressively coiffed Ryan Cabrera opened the evening, using an unusual clear guitar as he strummed through his catalog of hits like "On the Way Down," welcoming everyone to the "My2K Hot as Hell Tour."
He'd close with a medley of familiar pop hits, leading fans in a "Seven Nation Army" chant as he finished his set.
Then came Dream, an American pop girl group who earned popularity in 2000 with the hit "He Loves U Not." They worked through a lengthy set until closing with their widely familiar track that got the fans on their feet in a hurry.
They polled the crowd to learn just who all felt excited about the night's headliner, 98 Degrees, saying "They might even take their shirts off." The ladies in the house sounded OK with that prospect.
In between sets, the video monitors projected a My2K music video playlist, playing hits from the early 2000s like Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" and The Offspring's "Pretty Fly for a White Guy," all of which earned a singalong from fans.
O-Town next hit the stage, dropping one hit after another, including "Liquid Dreams" and "All or Nothing." One member revealed three band mates in the group were, in fact, single. That drew a holler or two.
That led to 98 Degrees, whose name seemed more than appropriate for this particularly humid evening. An impressive stage setup and actively colorful light presentation gave the smallish crowd a big show feeling, surely reminiscent of the group's peak performances in the early 2000s.
Some women in the front rows of the crowd got so excited, security prompted them to scurry back to their seats as they filmed with their cell phones as close as they possibly could.
I heard several people ask throughout the night about the sparser crowd than usual, "Why book a college-friendly nostalgia act in the middle of the summer when its target audience is mostly out of town?" In short, the venue has to book its acts when it can get them, and the artists' schedules don't cater to when the Amp can have them.
So when it comes to booking shows that might sell well when college kids are in town, the stars don't align every time. But those who came clearly got the night they'd hoped for out of the My2K Tour, with each act catering to the loyal crowds who have hung on to nearly every lyric of those songs from little more than a dozen years ago.

98 Degrees Partied Like It Was 1999 at South Side Ballroom

98 Degrees were throwbacks at South Side Ballroom, right down to the cargo pants.

With O-Town, Dream and Ryan Cabrera
South Side Ballroom, Dallas
Monday, July 11, 2016
On Monday night, nostalgia in the flesh walked through the door of South Side Ballroom. Five female friends had dressed for the show like it was 1999: overalls, plaid shirts, chokers, jean shorts, and the like.
The '90s-clad women were celebrating a 31st birthday with the help of Dream, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera and 98 Degrees. 
Yes, South Side Ballroom was host to the My2K Tour. While the pop stars once filled arenas in the early 2000s, in 2016 they are performing to thousands of nostalgic women in South Side Ballroom on a Monday night.  
The scene of the My2K Tour is young moms looking to get out of the house. Monday night, they did it with a relatively cheap concert ticket and the promise to see their J-14 posters in the flesh.
98 Degrees moved in lockstep all night.
Dream ("He Loves U Not") opened the show, followed by Making the Band group, O-Town. O-Town performed as expected: kind of like a boy band out of their prime for more than a decade. Cabrera, a musician who was never meant to be more than a church worship leader, was next. With just him and his guitar, his vocals weren't great as he sang old songs, unreleased new ones and covers.
But finally after the old-school music videos in between sets and all the anticipation, it was time for the reason all the moms called in a babysitter for the night. It was the big show. It was mother-effin' 98 Degrees. You know, the awkward bronze medal boy band who played second runner up to the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC in the Boy Band Olympics.
98 Degrees is the band fronted by Nick Lachey. You know Lachey as Jessica Simpson's first husband. Caught up? 98 Degrees was there to rock your world! And they did it in their camouflage cargo pants and sleeveless black hoodies to bring everyone back to their favorite decade.
No really, they did.
Well, there were some '90s mixed in there, too. In fact, during the middle of 98 Degrees' set, they outdid every great wedding band before them and played all the pop hits — while dancing! They covered Spice Girls, Britney Spears, Prince and even their boy band rivals, the gold and silver medal winners.
This kind of tour has the basic makings to be tragic. Instead of earning their living by buying a strip mall and calling it a day, these outdated musicians (if you can call them that; only 98 Degrees performed with live music) wanted to leave their families and tour again. And for the most part, it was pulled off.
98 Degrees, the easy highlight of the night, gave the audience exactly what they wanted: A way to feel young again. And while there's something a little sad about 40-year-old men wearing cargo pants and living in their glory days, they looked like they were genuinely enjoying themselves. They knew their purpose. They thankfully didn't sing any new songs. There was crowd interaction. Hell, there were even costume changes.
But the best part of all of this, kids, is one day you'll be celebrating your 31st birthday with $40 One Direction tickets in downtown Dallas.
Nick Lachey, the former Mr. Jessica Simpson, led his grown-up boy band through the routine.

Just a few months ago, Vanessa dished to E! News about the possibility of adding a third child to the Lachey clan. "The second [child] has been different just in the sense that it's nonstop, but I love that," she explained in June. "It's busy and it's chaotic,'s what I've wanted and it's all I know right now and on top of all of that, I have the most amazing supportive husband."
"If we're blessed with no. 3, it's just going to be that much more exciting," she added. "If it happens, it happens!"
Well, it's officially happening! Congratulations to Nick and Vanessa on their happy baby news!
