Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica
As newlyweds, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey stole the hearts of audiences everywhere when they shared their wackiest and most private moments with the world on Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. MTV gave fans an all-access pass to go behind-the-scenes of Nick and Jessica's devotion to each other and their careers as cameras followed them on tour, at photo shoots and behind closed doors. Watching Nick and Jessica juggle marriage and superstardom made them, for a time, America's favorite celebrity couple -- the glamour, the performances and the love. Plus, who could forget all those classic "Jessica moments," like the famous Chicken of the Sea episode where Jessica pondered whether she was eating chicken or tuna? Or when Jessica defended her theory about where Buffalo wings really came from or how platypus should be pronounced "platamapus?" Between all the success and silliness, though, Nick and Jessica often struggled to spend time with each other. The parties, the paparazzi and their packed schedules left newlyweds Nick and Jess with little time alone. But through it all they were able to experience the joys, and all of the challenges, of marriage together. And so were we. Although Newlyweds ended in 2005 -- and, sadly, Nick and Jessica went their separate ways, divorcing in early 2006 -- the pop stars continued to heat up MTV. Before marrying Jessica in 2002, Nick was best known as one-third of the platinum-selling group 98 Degrees. By the time Newlyweds debuted in 2003, Nick had left 98 Degrees and released his first solo album, SoulO. The single "This I Swear" was used as the Newlyweds theme song. A few months after Newlyweds ended, Nick released his second solo album, What's Left of Me. The title track featured lyrics many speculated were about the end of his relationship with Jessica and the video, which starred MTV VJ Vanessa Minnillo, was a hit on MTV. Prior to Newlyweds, Jessica had several hit singles, including "I Wanna Love You Forever," "Irresistible" and "I Think I'm in Love With You." During the first season of Newlyweds, Jessica released her multi-platinum-selling third album, In This Skin. The video for the hit single "With You" had a Newlyweds-inspired theme. After the final season of Newlyweds aired, Jessica released the album A Public Affair. The video for the title track featured Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate and Ryan Seacrest. While Nick and Jessica have moved on in their lives, their time as Newlyweds will live forever in our hearts and on MTV.com.
