A decade ago, there were some long-term Hollywood romances we forgot about and some flings we didn't even know about. In honor of Throwback Thursday, here are 15 couples from 2004.
As some say, it's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. But those people are wrong!
For years, Nick Lachey spent his nights singing to thousands of screaming girls as part of the chart-topping boy band 98 Degrees. But lately, 'The Sing-Off' host has been crooning to a much smaller audience — his one-year-old son, Camden.
After numerous hosting gigs and TV guest roles, Vanessa Lachey has finally landed her "dream job" on the new Fox sitcom Dads, playing Giovanni Ribisi's wife and the mother of their two children.
"It has changed me for sure. It literally affects everything you do, every decision you make," Nick recently said about becoming a dad.
Kim Kardashian, 32, credits a 2006 date with Nick Lachey, 39, to catapulting her to fame in 'Kardashian Konfidential', her book with sisters Kourtney and Khloe.
Soon-to-be-mommy Vanessa Lachey recently appeared on Bethenny Frankel's talk show, where she beamed throughout the entire interview, and proudly showed off her 7-month rotund baby bump (which we just learned is harboring a boy. Eek!)
Jessica Simpson may be ready to give birth at any moment, but she's not the only one with a bun in the oven these days! Her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, 37, and his new wife, Vanessa Minnillo, 30, shared the happy news this morning that they too are expecting their first child.
Some celebrities have no shame when it comes to certain things: details about their private lives, public meltdowns, and in some cases, even their weird fetishes. Now, we totally support everyone's right to like whatever they want to like (today, January 20, is International Fetish Day after all) but some things should be kept private – namely, these odd celeb fetishes!
This year, not only did we wake up at dawn one April morning to watch the televised wedding of the future King and Queen of England, but we also watched our own American reality TV queen walk down the aisle in a lavish ceremony. Add to that a surprise elopement between two A-list stars, an almost-runaway princess bride, and a Las Vegas wedding between two wannabe reality stars with a major age difference.
Looks like Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey aren't the only former MTV reality stars to find true love this year. After dating for about five years, Donald Faison of Scrubs fame finally popped the question this weekend to his girlfriend, CaCee Cobb, best known for her role as Jessica Simpson's personal assistant and best friend on the ill-fated MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, as well as the short-lived VH1 show with Simpson, The Price of Beauty.

If you watched TLC this past weekend, you may have caught Nick and Vanessa's Dream Wedding, the reality show special documenting Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo's recent and super-secret nuptials on Necker Island. And while the couple went through the typical wedding process of picking out flowers and deciding on a location, there were times when 30-year-old Vanessa, a first-time bride and a first-time reality show subject, seemed like she was trying really, really hard to be entertaining.
If you're reading this somewhere besides a top-secret tropical island, chances are that you weren't one of the lucky guests that Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo invited to their super-private wedding this weekend. (Although, don't be sad, we're sure that your — and Jessica Simpson's — invites were just lost in the mail!) According to People Magazine, the couple flew their 35 friends and family members to an island location, without telling them where they were going!
The wedding countdown has begun for Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, who each said sayonara to singlehood last weekend—Nick was seen at LA's Supper Club, flanked by two female friends, and Vanessa did it up (where else?) in Vegas with her girl posse.
We may not know the exact date of Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo's wedding, but by the looks of the wedding shower they threw this weekend, it's going to be all things classy, expensive, and liquor-friendly of course. Nick and Vanessa's joint shower was held at the London West Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. Guests such as Drew Lachey (Dancing With the Stars winner) and NFL player Matt Leihnart were able to enjoy the roof top pool garden in the hotel and enjoy their fair share of booze.
Show biz moms are one thing (hello Toddlers and Tiaras!), but show dads are an entirely different breed. From Billy Ray Cyrus to Papa Joe Simpson, there's something inherently creepy about their overinvolvement with their famous daughters and their careers. Who could forget Miley's lovey-dovey Vanity Fair photos or Papa Joe's infamous "Double Ds" comments about daughter Jessica's ample assets? Well, it looks like Papa Joe might be up to his old tricks, at least where his daughters' love lives are concerned. Rumors flew that he was the one who broke up Jessica's marriage to Nick Lachey years ago, and now it appears he may have played a similar role in Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz's demise.
