Jessica Simpson and Nick Lacheydocumented their marriage on reality television for three seasons and now a Newlyweds producer is opening up about their relationship trouble during filming.
The couple tied the knot in October 2002 and the show premiered in August 2003. The show finished airing in March 2005 and then they filed for divorce in December 2005.
