Nick Lachey Gets Engaged Vs. Jessica Simpson Gets EngagedWinner: Yesterday wasn't the first time Jessica tried to trump someone's news. In November of 2010, her ex-husband, Nick Lachey announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo. Just a few days later ... surprise! Jessica was engaged too, to the guy she had been dating for five minutes. I give this win to Nick and Vanessa who appear to have gotten engaged (and married) for respectable reasons.
