    I hope this doesn't spoil your holiday dinners, but Nick and Jessica have announced their official separation to US magazine. I'm sure many here sadly recall the press conferences with US magazine to announce their own separations. And I know for people like Brad Cook who model their marriage after the happy couple, Nick and Jessica, this must be a heart wrenching moment. The irony of it is they just seemed to be made for each other, you kinda have to wonder if any marriage stands a chance if the "eternal love" of Nick and Jessica can't stand the test of time. "Newlyweds" was real, wasn't it? This is a true tragedy of our era, but we can all take solace in the fact that Tom and Katie seem to be in such bliss! So it will be a happy thanksgiving after all! :D

  2. Well thanks for ruining my Thanksgiving. Im gonna go get in a fetal position in the corner for a few hours and cry now. Thanks

    A most saddening day, I'm not sure if I will be able to eat my Thanksgiving meal today knowing that they are no longer together.

    Ummm, No, not really.

    Thats pretty sad, i thought it was a joke when i read the thread title.

    I dont think they were made in heaven, i think she loved him, and he loved her appearence.
    But cmon, you've watched the show. How often does he seem fed up with her cluelessness? He just wants the poontang.

    Poontang only takes you so far. As Chris Rock said ...

    "Whatever you into, your woman gotta be into, too, and vice versa...

    or the s**t ain't gonna work.

    lt ain't gonna work.

    That's right. lf you born-again, your woman gotta be born-again, too.

    lf you a crackhead, your woman gotta be a crackhead, too..."

    I think Lachey had at least half a brain.

    Once again, the National Enquirer proves to be 100% accurate and years ahead in breaking news...

    And you thought their report of Elvis being abducted by alien Big Foots working for the CIA was all made up...

    You'll see.

    You'll see!!! :D

    i'm kinda suprised at all the sarcasm here.

    i mean. it's still two people who were married. and they are getting a divorce. anyone who has had one knows that they aren't always nice and easy.

    the hearing from my parents divorce lasted a little under 3 years.

    it's a tough thing to experience for a 4-7 year old.

    they don't have kids so that aspect doesn't come into to play.
    but still, they are people just like you and me.


    i'm not gonna miss that show.

    Who cares if Jessica is as sharp as an ice cube? She's got the looks and the $$$. Shoot, I'll drink her bath water.

    One can always impress the geeky, artsy fartsy, intellectual and flabby/pasty girls with JS's Ferrari.

    I'm with Clay here... despite the fact that I find their show and their music annoying, I don't relish in their divorce. It's a tough, painful process, and the media's not gonna make it any easier on them. Best of luck to both of them... just don't make any more reality TV shows.

    I knew something was up. When I was at the club. Jessica comes up to me and says "Call me" slips me her number and goes back to Nick.
