Nick Lachey and his Jessica Simpson Look-Alike
After splitting with brunette Vanessa Minnillo, Nick Lachey is seen cozying up to a blonde who looks like his ex-wife, Jessica Simpson
While Nick Lachey ruled out a reunion with his ex-wife Jessica Simpson when the former Newlyweds both found themselves suddenly single, it seems that the singer might have had the Dukes of Hazzard star in mind when he hooked up with a long-haired blonde last week.
Nick, who split with brunette Vanessa Minnillo at the end of June, was single and ready to mingle when he hit Hollywood’s newest hotspot Madame Royale with five friends.
The former 98 Degrees singer and his pals nabbed a table and a bucket of iced beers and then sat back and waited for women to start approaching the table.
“Nick’s friends benefit from all of his celebrity perks,” my spy told me. “They showed up just before midnight and quickly had a bunch of girls around them.” The girls included a blonde with long blonde hair and generous proportions, sound familiar?
“The guys were definitely on the prowl,” the insider adds. “They danced and hung out until almost 2 a.m. before they all snuck out the back door together and piled into Nick’s SUV.”
A few days later, Nick was spotted dining at Stanley’s Restaurant and Bar with the blonde from his night of fun at Madame Royale.
A friend of Nick’s tells me, “Nick is young and single – of course he’s dating. He has a certain type of woman he likes and if one catches his eye, he’s a gentleman and will ask her out on a date.”
