Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica

Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica is a reality television show that was produced and aired by MTV and MuchMusic. It followed the marriage of then husband and wife Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. The show first aired in August 2003 and ran three seasons, with 41 episodes in total. The last season started on January 26, 2005, and the last episode aired on March 30, 2005.

Simpson and Lachey were married on October 26, 2002 and filed for divorce on December 16, 2005. On June 30, 2006 Jessica and Nick's divorce was finalized.

Part of the show's gimmick involved displaying Simpson's naive personality, playing on the popular stereotype of "dumb blondes." Perhaps the most famous example comes from the first episode, in which Simpson, confronted with a can of Chicken of the Sea tuna, asked Nick "Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says [sic] 'Chicken... by the Sea'."

Origin and effects

The show was originally intended for Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley, but the couple decided not to continue with the project after the start of pre-production. It was shelved until 2002, when Jessica's father and manager, Joe Simpson, contacted MTV about producing a show starring his daughter and her new husband.

When Simpson was originally asked why she chose to do such a show for MTV, she replied that it was good promotion for her new album In This Skin. The reality show, which coincided with the release of the album, at first did not help Simpson's album sales, as it debuted at #10 on the Billboard Charts and quickly fell down.

However, over the span of the first season, Simpson's popularity began growing, as many of her "dumb blonde" antics gave her much publicity. By the close of 2003, Simpson and Lachey had both become household names. Simpson's label decided to release the second single "With You" to see how it would do on radio now that Simpson had become an A-Lister.

The single began climbing steadily up the charts, and Columbia Records took note of Jessica Simpson's skyrocketing popularity and decided to re-release In This Skin in early 2004. In This Skin reached #2 on the Billboard Charts, due in part to her show. "With You" had a Newlyweds themed video, which helped the single become one of the biggest hits of her career. Nick and Jessica went their separate ways, divorcing in early 2006.
