Did you see that Nick and Jessica broke up? Who saw that one coming! I'm not sure if Nick fully understands where he fits in this scenario. As I understand it, when they got together, Jessica Simpson seemed to be the third best female pop star in her genre (behind Britney and Christina) and Nick was in arguably the third best boy band. A wedding between these two third-string stars created a tier one couple, of which Jessica was able to capitalize and propel her actual career into the top spot with movies and additional music. Nick, not so much. I imagine Nick can ride this for a while longer, but he'll probably be bartending in Cincinnati five years from now.
But I'm hoping things work out OK for Nick since he is probably the most famous alumni that Miami of Ohio has now.
