Forever Jessica Simpson's Ex?

Congratulations to Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo on their recent engagement. You may know Nick Lachey as a member of the band 98 Degrees, the host of NBC's The Sing Off, or the co-star of MTV's Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica. Of course, to Yahoo and many other people, Lachey is known as Jessica Simpson's ex-husband.

So is Nick Lachey going to be known as Jessica Simpson's ex-husband for life? It seems to me that Lachey has had just as much professional success, if not more than Simpson over the past five years. He's certainly had more personal success than Jessica.

I think she is still much more famous than he is. And you didn't even mention his solo hit.

Yeah, it's gotta suck to be forever tied to someone you don't want to be associated with anymore. Still, there are much worse people than Jessica Simpson to be tied to. O.J. Simpson comes to mind.

I forgot that Lachey had a brief solo career.

While, yes, there are worse people to be associated with forever, it seems sad that Lachey's engagement announcement headline mentions only his ex-wife.

He should thank his lucky stars to be associated with her the rest of his life. If he hadn't hooked up with that bubbleheaded blonde, it's very doubtful that he'd have a fraction of the popularity that he does now.
