First of all, let me be clear that the headline here isn’t gonna mean what you want it to mean, but the New York Daily News says today that things are about to get rough in the PR wars between Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. Ever conscious of her public approval numbers, Simpson’s handlers are said to be panicked that 71% of People magazine readers and 76% of Star magazine readers blame her and not Nick for ruining the three-year marriage.
Simpson’s PR department has been calling nearly every gossip reporter in town with tips about Nick – alleging everything from greediness to lechery. Yesterday, a story was planted in the New York Post about Nick selling his side of the story to OK! magazine for $300,000, a deal OK! vehemently denies.
Well, whatever, I really don’t think there’s much point in smearing Nick Lachey. I doubt most people even know who the hell he is or why he was ever famous in the first place. Basically, he was a D-list celebrity before and now, without Jessica, he’ll be one again. He’s pretty much those guys in the Bod body spray commercials, minus the penis in his mouth between takes.
