Sorry, Newlyweds fans: Nick and Jessica won't ever get back together.

Asked at Saturday's Los Angeles Lakers 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament if they'll ever reunite, Drew Lachey told Usmagazine.com: "On the record or off the record? No on both." Nick and Jessica - who split in 2006 - recently ended relationships around the same time. Nick and Vanessa Minnillo called it quits this summer, shortly before Tony Romo dumped Jessica before her 29th birthday in July.

"It made me understand what marriage is, what love is, what commitment is," she said. "In all honesty, I believe it did not affect our marriage. Because we enjoyed watching those episodes, and that will always be a time I cherish."
