Nick Lachey accused of hitting on another woman, getting digits: are you surprised?

Star Magazine is reporting (via Radar Online) that married singer/reality star Nick Lachey spent an awfully long time hitting on a lovely brunette TV hostess who bears a mild resemblance to his wife, Vanessa Lachey. According to Star, Nick spent “hours heavily flirting” with a woman named Stuart Brazell at a party and was “begging” for her number. Nick and Vanessa have been married for just a year and a half and have a five month baby together. If this is true it’s bad news for them:

The proud papa of baby Camden was spotted recently spending hours heavily flirting with sexy TV personality Stuart Brazell during a star-studded pre-Grammys party at Paramount Studios, according to an exclusive report in the new issue of Star magazine.

“He wanted to know everything about her,” an witness dished to Star.

“You never would’ve guessed he’s married with a baby!”

Star reports that the eyewitness also claims the 98 Degrees singer was seen begging Stuart for her number!

For all the juicy details on Nick’s efforts to put the moves on Stuart pick up the latest issue of Star magazine — on newsstands Thursday.

I really hope this isn’t true. I hope Nick was talking to this lady because they’re working on a project together or because they’re interested in collaborating or something. Her IMDB has her doing casting work for reality TV as well as several producing projects, so it’s entirely possible they were talking business. Plus, I just don’t see Nick as a cheater at all. I used to watch Newlyweds (don’t judge!) and he always seemed so solid to me. He’s a serial monogamist and I can’t imagine that he would cheat on Vanessa at all, especially with a new baby at home. This is Star stirring up sh*t where there is none – I hope! But I’ve also heard of the nicest, most seemingly family-oriented dudes getting strange on the side. (In real life, not just celebrity land.) Maybe I shouldn’t be so naive.

    I wouldn’t put too much stock in what “Star” has to say. Nick is a good guy from Cincinnati and he IS rock solid. Nothing to see here folks, move along…

  2. lilred1 says:

    I’m with you celebitchy I hope it’s not true…I have always had a soft spot for this particular boy bander.

  3. Elceibeno08 says:

    Very cute baby! He’s going to be hot like his daddy.

  4. Dorothy#1 says:

    I used to watch newlyweds too! The show made me LOVE nick, but Jessica not so much.
    I really hope this isn’t true.

  5. Sam says:

    Oh, I like Nick and Vanessa together. They dated a long time before getting married, which is nice. They also never seemed to have the air of desperation that Jessica still seems to carry around with her (I’m remembering when she got engaged with a ring she bought herself a few days after Nick and Vanessa announced theirs).

    Though who knows? Maybe it’s true but its not cheating. Some women are cool with their man flirting or doing other stuff as soon as its not physical. I tend to think its none of the public’s business, it’s the couples’ business.

  6. Dizzle says:

    Sigh. I long for the days of newlyweds.

  7. andrea says:

    I suspect the source might be someone who works publicity for Stuart. Sure, I’d believe Nick spoke to her and was maybe even a little Hollywood-style flirty, but I doubt it went beyond that. If he’d always been that kind of a dog in public, it would have become common knowledge a long time ago.

  8. Gia says:

    Don’t believe it for a minute.

  9. Merritt says:

    There were rumors of him cheating back when he was with Jessica. Don’t know if they were true, but there were some rumors at the time.

  10. bns says:

    I’m surprised, but only because I thought he was gay.

  11. RHONYC says:

    my god…BEAUT-I-FUL BABY!!!

    congrats. ;-)

  12. Lila says:

    I guess no one in Hollywood cheating is all that surprising, but I hope this one isn’t true. Nick was always such a real guy on Newlyweds. Loved how he actually did projects around the house and didn’t want to blow money just because they had it. He has a gorgeous family-I don’t see him throwing that away.

  13. littlestar says:

    I don’t believe this either! I’ve loved Nick since the Newlyweds too!

  14. G says:

    I too watched Newlyweds and have never understood why Jessica chose to get rid a of a perfectly good husband?

    I don’t really buy this story…….wait and see….

  15. Rhonda says:

    Nick is a cheater sorry. I know for a fact he cheated on Jessica while they were married and he was in Nashville without her.

    And this isn’t the first story of him cheating on Vanessa either. I don’t know how he got such a good guy rep but I guess he has good PR. He may be a nice guy but he’s definitely not a faithful one.

  16. lambchops says:

    What with the crazy wide open smile?

  17. scarlett says:

    The woman in question flat out denied this was true. As the story goes, they were at some event, she begged for a photo they spoke for about and minute and that was that. He and Vanessa are solid.

  18. Holdin27 says:

    Hope its not true because I’ve always admired the way he handled his divorce and moving on with Vanessa. That said, nothing surprises me any more.

  19. Dawn says:

    Well I certainly hope this is NOT among the few times that Star got it right. I love N&V together. Please don’t be another swarmy guy Nick, be one of the good ones.

  20. Lupe says:

    A woman named Stuart? She’d have to be really hot for me to get past that name, ugh.

  21. anon says:

    Rather then stir things up I will say there are a few nieve people here. This is not a pro Jess site either but I do enjoy reading & making a few comments. All that needs to be said is Nick is no white knight by a long shot. He has great PR that covers up for him & media attachments & many refuse to believe a lot of Newly WEDS was scripted. Jessica slot in the media alwayas will be desperate,needy,ditzy, you know the lines. lol She does get the last laugh though. Maybe some people need to rethink & re google NICK & Vanessa. & NIck history.. if you want to believe everything you read about Jessica then give NIck and Vanessa a shot too. lol Just

    • Gia says:

      ermm..and how exactly does she get the last laugh? By marrying some scrounger who she has to advance money to to buy her presents? And if you mean her money gives her the last laugh? Well, as many people can attest to, money does NOT give you happiness. Like Biggie said, “mo’ money. Mo’ problems”

    • Amory says:

      I have to agree with Gia – what’s with the last laugh thing? Nick and Vanessa seem like a real couple – there is almost that is not manufactured by Jessica Simpson, and I think daddy is still pulling the strings. That Jessica moved ahead in her career by humiliating herself for public amusement and becoming part plastic is nothing to be proud of. Stupid and vapid is no way to go through life. And the word is “naive” since it appears to be a favorite of yours.

      • scarlett says:

        I agree. What does Jessica have to laugh about? Her fiance is unemployed, on her payroll and she had to buy her own ring. He also looks disheveled and depressed most of the time. I see nothing appealing about him whatsover. Vanessa and Nick seem to have a real relationship that is based on mutual respect. They have a beautiful son together. Sorry, but I don’t believe this rumor. I think their relationship is not perfect but it is real.

  22. Monie says:

    I’ve heard plenty of names that transition well from men to women but Stuart…that’s pushing it.

  23. Memphis says:

    I just don’t see it… He seems like a solid guy and they really seem to love each other and actually like being around each other..So I just don’t see it.

  24. Ravensdaughter says:

    She’s so pretty (and non-crazy-see Jessica Simpson) and the baby is divine!
    I hope Star is off on this one…

  25. DGO says:

    There were rumors about Nick cheating on Jessica back in the day. He even propositioned a Page Six reporter (dummy). There have been stories about him and Vanessa publicly fighting in clubs over his flirting. I believe this story. Can’t stand Nick one bit.

  26. april says:

    If he is flirting he is an idiot. Vanessa and baby are both super adorable.

  27. OriginalMe says:

    There were a lot of reports of Nick hitting on Vanessa Minillo while he was still married to Jessica. There were even some pictures of them talking at a bar/club.Well, looks like there was some sort of attraction there because now Nick and VM are married. Sometimes tabs are way off and sometimes they are right. This was probably just some PR thing for the Stuart woman to get attention, but you never know.

  28. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    IF this is true, he should consider slowing down. Obv he is married and has a baby which is already enough a reason, but aside from that, his wife is very beautiful. I really dont believe he could do better looks-wise than her. I know it’s shallow, but whatever. He’s short and C-list at best, come on.

  29. bELLA says:

    He has always been a player…..

  30. Moi says:

    I think because I had been reading so many domestic abuse talk in the DL and JB post, that my mind played tricks on me, and I took “hitting on” as actually hitting. Whoops. Anyhow, if it’s true, him hitting “on”, not bitch slapping a woman, my opinion will still be to just dump his ass girl.

  31. ClaireNZ says:

    Wow he comes across so genuine – he is a better actor or whatever he does than I give him credit for. Too many people on here seem to know things about him. I saw his E special from the Jessica split – he was crying, his Dad was crying. I feel like he has cheated on me! That baby is so divine – strange to think he has a beautiful wife and gorgeous child at home and its still not enough.

  32. Cinderella says:

    He seems to be such a phony, and those town-to-town stories don’t seem so far fetched. Vanessa better protect herself and that beautiful baby.

  33. Sugar says:

    I remember the chemistry between N&V when she was on Vh1or MTV (that I don’t remember) just it was some show my daughter had on after school…anyhoo the buzz started about their chemistry then fastforward here we are today so hey WAKE UP Nick if there is any truth to this story because you have a beautiful wife & an adorable son you are blessed- don’t f it up or I’m gonna have to bitch slap you.

  34. F5 says:

    They’re both obnoxious, talentless famehoes who need to go away -_-

  35. Jessica says:

    Seriously, Does ANYONE buy the “Nick hit Jessica” story? because I 100% don’t.

    Jessica has an unemployed loser for a boyfriend, she had to buy her own engagement ring and it’s not very hard to see why Eric keeps on getting her pregnant first before even marring her.

    He always wants to be tied to Jessica because she has the majority of the money.

    Jessica DOES NOT have the last laugh not by a long shot.

    PLUS, IF this story was even remotely true, we would have heard it years ago and the press would be all over it.

    There is a reason WHY she never wanted to talk about her marriage to Nick because I assume it’s because she never really tried to work on their marriage and she realizes what a great guy she really let go.

    Nick and Drew seem to come from a very solid family and I doubt there was abuse in their background.

    I also don’t believe that Nick every cheated on her either.
