Never say never again Jessica and Nick, Madonna and Guy may be reconciling Comments July 16, 2009 BY BILL ZWECKER Sun-Times ColumnistCould Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey be taking a page from Elizabeth Taylor's and the late Richard Burton's playbook? Sources close to the former couple say they may reunite.''Nick has never stopped loving Jessica,'' says a longtime Lachey buddy who also has worked for him.

According to both that source and a woman who in Simpson's inner circle, the ex-couple also have been in close touch since both of their most recent relationships ended.» Click to enlarge imageJessica Simpson (left) and Nick Lachey together in 2005.

(AP file) Simpson finally was dumped by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and Lachey and TV personality Vanessa Minnillo have gone their separate ways.

• Only time will tell what happens with Simpson and Lachey, but my sources tell me the duo have had a number of very long -- more than an hour -- phone conversations, especially since Simpson's split with Romo became public.• Meanwhile, as tipped here recently, Madonna and Guy Ritchie also could be getting back together.

While some Madonna friends agree with a London pal -- ''they are just friendly again because of their kids'' -- another Madonna source disagrees.

"They probably will never remarry, but they are definitely back together, and that includes romantically.


Madonna has become bored with [recent boytoy] Jesus Luz."JACKSON UPDATE: Here's the reason LaToya Jackson so freely used the word ''murdered'' in recent press interviews to describe her brother Michael's death.

Turns out LaToya was tipped off by Los Angeles Police authorities that the investigation into Michael's death was about to be treated as a homicide.• Much has been made of Michael Jackson's gaunt appearance shortly before his death.

A longtime Jackson family employee tells me that much of that likely was tied to the fact ''Michael was bulimic.


It hit me when Magic [Johnson] was talking about Michael sitting on the floor with him eating Kentucky Fried Chicken.


Everyone thought that was a great thing at the memorial service, and it was.

Only thing, what Magic -- and everyone else -- didn't realize: Michael then would have gone and thrown up all of that.''He would down unbelievable amounts of things like KFC extra-crispy chicken -- like a whole family-size bucket by himself -- or a couple of large Domino's pizzas or two or three whole Marie Callender's pies ...

and then go throw them up,'' a clear sign of bulimic behavior.SAME NAME GAME: "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau jokingly says every time the other Jon Favreau -- President Obama's White House speechwriter -- is mentioned in a gossip column linked to actress Rashida Jones (''Parks & Recreation''), friends calls worrying about his marriage.

For the record, the actor and filmmaker and wife Joya are fine.This story reminds me of something ''Seinfeld'' star Jason Alexander told me a few years ago, after Britney Spears married (for 55 hours) her childhood chum also named Jason Alexander.

''I got calls from all of my wife's best friends, screaming, 'How could you do this?' " Happy to report Alexander and wife Daena are still married after 28 years and two kids.LOCAL LIGHTS: Though the man who played Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund, was not involved with ''The Nightmare on Elm Street'' remake that recently wrapped filming here, the actor last week did shoot scenes with local actors Mike Bradecich and John La Flamboy in ''The Mole Man of Belmont Avenue,'' the movie Bradecich and LaFlamboy co-wrote and are now co-directing here.Bradecich is on a roll these days.

Not only did he play former Gov.

Rod Blagojevich's father-in-law, Dick Mell, in Second City's smash hit ''Rod Blagojevich Superstar,'' but he's become a ubiquitous presence on TV lately -- as the star of all those ''If it fits, it ships'' commercials for the U.S.

Postal Service.• Mancow Muller is excited he's going to be Jimmy Fallon's guest on ''Late Night'' Friday.

Wonder if Mancow will talk to Fallon about the new book he's writing: Fear: The 4-Letter Word That Controls Everything in Your Life -- and How to Overcome It.,CST-FTR-zp16.article
