Does Jessica Simpson Regret Divorcing Nick Lachey?

When Jessica Simpson announced her split from Nick Lachey on November 23, 2005, she could have hardly imagined that two years later she'd be the one still feeling heartbroken. But while Nick has happily moved in with his girlfriend of 18 months, Vanessa Minnillo, Simpson has endured a number of high-profile failed relationships - from John Mayer to Adam Levine to Orlando Bloom to, most recently, the troubled Owen Wilson.

So does all the heartache have Jessica missing her Newlyweds days? "There are definitely parts of her that regret breaking up with Nick now," a friend of Jessica’s tells Us Weekly in its new cover story. And that regret is starting to show. A source tells Us the singer spent October 26 (what would have been her fifth wedding anniversary) "looking through old photo albums that she made when she was with Nick...she said she was just being 'girlie,' but she was definitely somber."

A friend explains, "Jessica thought she would be with someone right by now." But relationship expert Dr. Janice D. Bennett tells Us that Jess, who has recently started dating Dallas Cowboys quarterback and notorious ladies' man Tony Romo (Romo briefly dated Carrie Underwood earlier this year), is often her own worst enemy. "It's possible Jessica is conflicted about being in a committed relationship again, so she is dating men who are unattainable," Bennett says.

Meanwhile, during a November 15 guest appearance on The View Jessica, who is currently recording a country album in an effort to revive her sagging music career, seemed to be pining for a guy not unlike the one she left two years ago: "I want a man. Somebody who's a really great family guy...Gosh, just somebody who's strong enough to be my man."
