I know it's tuna, but it says, ' the Sea'."''˛˛''Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica'' was a RealityTV {{docusoap}} running on Creator/{{MTV}} from 2003-05, starring pop singers Music/JessicaSimpson and Nick Lachey which chronicled their marriage in hybrid soap opera/sitcom style, and has sometimes been cited as a reason for their eventual divorce. Nick played the [[StraightMan normal guy]] to Jessica's [[TheDitz adorable airhead]].
