The Multi-Hyphenate Nick Lachey

Nick Lachey has had an array of careers ranging from fronting an international boy band to appearing on reality shows such as Love Is Blind and The Ultimatum on Netflix with his wife Vanessa.

These parents of three, Camden, Brooklyn and Phoenix, have been together since 2006 and despite a short-lived separation have managed to remain happy and healthy together.

98 Degrees

98 Degrees is one of the most celebrated boy bands to emerge during the 1990s. Their blend of R&B-influenced pop music and good looks quickly made them favorites with teenage audiences. Band members Jeff Timmons, brothers Nick Lachey Net Worth  and Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre were raised in Cincinnati Ohio where they attended Cincinnati’s School for Creative and Performing Arts where they studied music, visual arts and entertainment marketing as well as performing in concerts and plays throughout their adolescent years.

After leaving 98 Degrees behind, its members pursued solo careers. Nick Lachey married Jessica Simpson and appeared on various reality shows before hosting one himself. Additionally, he performed in Broadway productions of Rent and Monty Python’s Spamalot; both his former wife and him share two children together. Drew Dellecave also has two children from Lea Dellecave; in addition to this role on Dancing With the Stars Season Two as well as participating in VH1 reality show Mission Man Band.


Newlyweds takes aim at how some couples conceal secrets even after marriage in this subtle but adept comedy from Burns. He employs the mock-doc idiom effectively; however, at times this can become tiring as characters address the camera like interviewers while interjecting awkward questions during dramatic sequences.

Newlyweds was shot within one block radius of Lower Manhattan and made an ideal candidate for Tribeca Film Festival’s lineup. Its restaurant and cobblestone scenes fit in well, but Heineken beer and vitamin water being consumed as the sole beverages seems forced. At times it may even seem generic; with no indication as to where this marriage journey is heading; Amina and George, two protagonists of Newlyweds, had once been involved before meeting online dating services like Zoosk; their ongoing migration between Rochester, Dhaka and America possess soulful depth that cannot be denied; these couples remain one among many love polyhedrons constantly reshaping.


Following his stint with boy band 98 Degrees, Lachey began his solo musical career with the release of SoulO. Although this album proved unsuccessful commercially, Lachey has found much greater success elsewhere.

Singer Nick Lachey has appeared as host and judge on numerous shows including NBC’s The Sing-Off, co-hosting V.H.1’s Big Morning Buzz Live from 2014-15, and hosting Nickelodeon’s America’s Most Musical Family. Additionally he hosts his wife Vanessa Lachey’s Netflix show Love Is Blind with Netflix as its host in 2020.

Lachey also enjoys sports outside of his music career; he owns part of Tacoma Rainiers (an affiliate of Seattle Mariners) and serves on Feeding America’s Entertainment Council as well. Among his favorite foods are Skyline Chili, steak and pizza as well as eating cereal with milk on top and sipping sugar-free vanilla lattes from Starbucks.

What’s Left of Me

He may be apprehensive of releasing his second album after three years of having his private life broadcast to audiences via MTV’s Newlyweds show; therefore, his handlers may have failed him again in producing one that will please.

His signature come-hither is still present, yet his breathy vocals have become submerged by production that strictly follows boy band norms and songs without memorable melodies.

At Total Request Live during Carson Daly’s reign, Lachey and his band were frequent visitors, yet Lachey was busy promoting both his music and reality show with ex-wife Jessica Simpson. To star in their single’s video he recruited Vanessa Minnillo – herself recently single at that time – though due to being recently uncoupled, their typically cordial collaboration started feeling less warm; objects began disappearing from a house scene before Minnillo’s necklace wedding ring finally fell off her neck during its run-through.
