Memo to Tom. Son, you NEED to hire Nick"s publicist. Because never was a PR strategy so brilliantly conceived. So while my sources still maintain that Nick was the one who wanted out of the marriage for obvious reasons (his ex wife is a giant hole), reinventing himself as the man who adored his bride, who continues to adore her still, is absolute grade A spin at its finest. Oh - and by the way - he has a new album coming out. But you knew that already didn"t you? Here"s a tasty excerpt - Nick"s words of course - from the much talked about interview with Us Weekly/Rolling Stone: "It breaks my heart that I couldn"t make Jessica happy. I wanted to be everything to my wife. I wanted her to look at me with love in her eyes, the way she did at the beginning, and have her feel like I was the most wonderful, awe-inspiring man on the planet. And when that stopped, it was the worst feeling in the world. I"d marry her all over again. Because I still love her. It would be a lot easier to walk away if I didn"t." Basically what every woman wants to hear…right? Well, then he goes for even more gold. Turns out - Nick ain"t greedy! "There was a prenup drawn up by my business manager. There was some question as to her spending habits. It was a way to protect me. She said she didn"t want to sign it, and that was the end of it. We"ve always been a what"s-mine-is-hers situation. I haven"t requested alimony at all. I have no intention of filing for spousal support. And I"ve been clear with Jessica about not wanting it." And it just keeps on going. Next up: Nick has class! With a few tasteful and gracious comments even for Papa Joe thrown in for good measure: "I don"t know if there were other men. But if she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn"t work out. (If I) found her in bed with a guy, that would be clear cut. End of story. I wouldn"t have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery. (Regarding Joe) It would be easy for me to blame my divorce on him. That would be convenient. But at the end of the day, Jessica is a grown woman and she made her own decision." Now y"all know I"m a cynical bitch but even I swooned a little, although I am choosing to overlook the part where he breaks down in tears. Granted, I"m not the kind of girl who gets all sniffly at the sight of babies and kittens, but COME ON. Crying for a journalist from Rolling Stone??? Sorry gossips, but that"s just a little too Jennifer Aniston for my taste. Still... overall... I think it was a fantastic performance - the kind of performance that guarantees at least 2 years of nonstop celebrity AND civilian p*ssy and, quite possibly, some actual hope for his CD. And THAT, my friends, is why you call Ken Sunshine.
