Nick Takes the High Road

Nick was just named Cosmo's Fun, Fearless Male of the Year. Winning the title obviously made him think about the trials and tribulations he's gone through in his life, most recently, his very public divorce. Through it all he's managed to stay the well-grounded guy we loved to watch on The Newlyweds. Besides singing his heart out, he reveals how he got through his tough times. Here's more from Nick:

"You have to always have a good perspective and a good attitude and always take the high road. You never want to look back and regret the way you acted."

The singer, who split from Jessica Simpson in November 2005, tells PEOPLE: "Certainly I had some tough times in the past year. Hopefully I tried always to take the high road and make the most of the situation."

"What makes us all fun and fearless?" Lachey asked the crowd at the award ceremony at Manhattan's Cipriani restaurant. "Is it our passion? Is it our drive? Is it our love for our families? Let's face it – we're all just so damn good looking!"

Nick certainly seemed to play his cards right after the Jessica split. We know many women who would have lined up to be in Vanessa's shoes. Nick probably could have made that public affair much dirtier but instead he was nice and in the long run things worked out so well for him. Oh and like he said, he's just so damn good looking. That probably helped.

So he wrote songs about their breakup. What songwriter DOESN'T use personal experience when writing?

Yeah Nick wrote songs about being hurt but he didn't spill the beans on her ho like antics behind the scenes or allthe beans on the lies he caught her in. He def took the high road. Further more what interview could the skank give she cheated on him with multiple other semi celebs! Who all just used her dumb azz. She was no victim. Puhlease!

Nobody is being unfair to her....she screwed her image herself. She definately wanted public sympathy, but people saw how phoney she was. She wants to be like Angelina Jolie, she wants to adopt, she had an ulcer, she was so sad....Sorry she's FOS

Wow! He looks HOT. He looks like he would smell really good, too. I wonder what cologne he's wearing.

I don't get all the posts about not finding Nick appealing in any way. His character and personality speak for themselves. He's just a humble and classy man, unlike other so-called hotties out there. I take that over any hot, jerkoff any day. Looks don't mean everything to me.

Hmm. Took the high road? Pretty sure he lead with "What's Left of Me" and then plugged the album left and right by talking about how crushed he was (which I am sure he truly was) and even cried to Rolling Stone. Whereas Jessica refused to say anything (remember backing out of the Vanity Fair cover) at all much less play the victim. When they 1st divorced I was def. Team Lachey, but now I think that she is getting a really unfair deal (I am in PR and I think that her team just dropped the ball while Nick's milked it). Besides, no one (maybe not even these 2) know what really happened, but odds are this was not the work of one person.

Jessica would have written songs about their breakup as well... if she knew how to write. Or even hold a crayon.

Dreamsugar, you are right. I think it has to do with maturity. Jessica is so immature and let's Papa Joe do her important thinking for her. I could just scoop Nic up with some crackers and eat him that's YUMSUGAR!
