Amazing alert! It looks like The Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Lizzie Rovsek gave former boy-bander Nick Lachey more than just one night (“Una Noche”) — yep, they dated! Lizzie, of course, did the hardest thing she’s ever had to do: share deets of the whole relationship with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.


“Someone here reminded me that they were in the elevator with him when he was last on Watch What Happens Live, and he said, ‘Oh my god, this woman that I used to date is about to be an Orange County housewife,’” Andy revealed, then immediately launched into the tough questions: “You dated him pre-Jessica [Simpson] and post-Jessica, right?”

“This is true. I can’t lie about it anymore, or hide it,” Lizzie confessed, blushing. “It’s not a secret — I talk about it.”

It’s okay, Lizzie — you don’t have anything to be ashamed of! Nick said, “I do (cherish you)” to wife and former-VJ Vanessa Minnillo, and you’ve found the love that you’ve been looking for in hubby Christian. We’re running out of 98 Degrees references, but the only thing that matters is that Lizzie and Nick are happy, even if she is out of his life!

Can you see Nick and Lizzie together? Why do you think the two split up? Sound off in the comments!
