Be on the lookout for the new Rolling Stone issue (out this week) where Nick is interviewed about how his marriage to Jessica fell apart. Nick says he didn’t know his marriage was over until Jessica told him (ouch). He also says that Newlyweds blurred the line between playing a part on the show and what actually was reality. Some other quotes from Nick’s interview:
“I don’t pretend to understand (former father-in-law) Joe (Simpson). … I don’t know if he ever liked me. To this day I couldn’t say. It was painful. Do I think Joe drove a rift between us? No. Was he an influence in our marriage? Absolutely.”
“I don’t know if there were other men. But if she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn’t work. … Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn’t have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery.”
“It breaks my heart that I couldn’t make Jessica happy,” he mumbles, his chin pressed into his chest. “I wanted to be everything to my wife. I wanted her to look at me with love in her eyes, the way she did at the beginning, and have her feel like I was the most wonderful, awe-inspiring man on the planet. And when that stopped, it was the worst feeling in the world. I’d marry her all over again because I still love her. It would be a lot easier to walk away if I didn’t.”
Update: The article is now online!
Ow!!! The National Enquirer is reporting that Jess was accidentally badly scratched near her left ear when she was playing with him. Some people are saying she’s got seven (!!) stitches but Jess’ publicist denies this.

In the upcoming issue of W magazine (out March 17th), Jessica gives a new interview on life after being happily married and there’s a four page photo shoot of her too.
“I don’t know what happened to me. It’s so strange. I’m just proud of allowing myself to think and to act and to be. I just feel alive. I feel free. I feel like I can do anything and thereâ€™s nobody to answer to but myself. I’m just proud of allowing myself to think and to act and to beâ€¦I didn’t want to let my fans down, my family down. But then you just have to realize that if you’re not happy, you can’t make anybody else happy. When you walk away from something and there’s no gravitational pull, then you know you’re doing the right thing.” says Jess in the interview.
Jess has been frustrated by the papparrazzi and even went to the extreme of renting a dozen different cars and hiding in the trunk of a car in just one day!
“I can’t save anything from being talked about. It’s so cruel and I just try not to let it affect me, whatever everybody was thinking about me. If I did, I don’t think I’d be here right now. I feel like everybody’s always out to get me, and that’s a weird feeling. But you can let the chaos consume you or you can stand next to the chaos and just walk along with it.”
She admits that she still talks to Nick often and thinks he’s one of her best friends and says their breakup isn’t as crazy as the media makes you think it is.
“I love life. I’m very blessed with where I’m at.”

Gee Jessica, I thought your dad’s comment on your breasts were over the line but there’s really no need to tell us:
â€œI have amazing boobs. They’re just perfect. At school, my boobs were bigger than all my friends and I was afraid to show them. Now, I feel they make my outfits look better. They’re like an accessory.â€?
Yes, be proud of your body… but please there’s no need to go down that line. What happened to the Jessica who didn’t want to dress skimpily like Christina or Britney (back in the day before they both got married) and leave something to the imagination? Something happened when she did Dukes of Hazzard and I’m not so sure she’ll ever go back to the sweet Jess I became a big fan of.
Am I crazy? LOL! Hope you had a great weekend. It’s the summer here and I’ve been out enjoying the weather and holidays.. sorry for being a little slow updating.
In what was likely their first meeting since Dec. 15, the pair reunited Jan. 4, when Nick showed up at the Valley Inn Restaurant & Bar in Sherman Oaks, Calif., where Jessica had been enjoying a quiet dinner with her sister Ashlee, dad, Joe, and mom, Tina. “Nick slid into the booth next to Jessica and gave her a big hug and a kiss,” says the source. “It was obvious they hadn’t seen each other for a while. He was dreamy-eyed looking at her. Jessica seemed guarded at first but loosened up as the visit progressed.”
It turns out business-minded Joe set up the meeting! Sources close to the Simpson family say the elder Simpson’s office has been inundated with fan e-mails and letters pleading with the kaput couple to get back together. “Joe’s shocked at how many people want to see Nick and Jess together again,” says a Simpson insider. “He’s worried that Jessica’s fans will desert her because they blame her for the breakup.”

Ok, so we all know Jessica bought a $3 million dollar house in Beverly Hills recently. Well, the latest goss I’ve heard is that she’s looking to buy an apartment or duplex in New York City - somewhere in lower Manhattan.
A friend of Jessica’s told the NY Post, “She wants to start fresh, and she loves New York - it’s always been good to her.”
“I think people feel desperate to be noticed sometimes. It can lead you to give too much away. I’m just not going to do that. My love life will never be for sale. People can speculate all they want, but it will never be up on the auction block. It will never be used to promote myself.”
Star magazine reports that when Nick and Jess had their final meeting together at her parent’s house, Nick pleaded with Jessica to try once again - to start over and fall in love again. He also was said to have brought in flowers for her whole family and a get well card for Ashlee - who was recently taken to hospital.
“She just shook her head no,” a ’source’ told Star. Apparently she told Nick that she was filing for a divorce and “she wasn’t in love with him anymore.”
Not long after filing for divorce, Jessica Simpson has bought a home in Beverly Hills 90210, worth $3 million and has moved in. She’s been staying with her parents since she separated from Nick. Nick’s staying (currently) in their house in Calabasa (the one on Newlyweds).
Approximately 35,000 people live in Beverly Hills, including celebs such as:
Tom Arnold and Roseanne Barr, Pamela Anderson, Julie Andrews, Janet Jackson, The Osbornes, Simon Cowell, Jack Nicholson.
