Las Vegas Confidential: A-Z with Nick Lachey
May 4, 2006

When you take two of the most eligible men on the planet, Nick Lachey and USC grad Matt Leinart, and mix in everyone's favorite hotel heiress, Paris Hilton, you've got "Extra's" Las Vegas Confidential! And the only way to sum up Wednesday in Sin City is, "That's hot."

One hot, happy hottie at the Vegas party was Nick Lachey, who revealed: "I'm happy; I've got no reason not to be happy."

The ex-"Newlywed" was showing no signs of post-Jessica depression, as the Hollywood heartthrob mixed with all the beautiful people at Pure's NFL coming out party for Matt Leinart.

"Matt's a great friend of mine," Nick said. "I wanted to be here to support him."

So exactly who is Matt Leinart? Besides being one of People magazine's Most Beautiful, Matt is the former USC quarterback about to become one of the NFL's newest millionaires. The dark-haired stud was recently drafted tenth overall by the Arizona Cardinals. He's also rumored to be dating Paris Hilton.

"Extra's" Carlos Diaz went straight to the source to set the record straight. "We're friends," Paris told us. Matt reiterated that, revealing, "We're friends. That's it."

While it looks as though the two friends are extremely close, one thing Matt can count on is plenty of help handling all those tabloid rumors. "It's a part of the world we live in," Nick said. "You learn, as I'm sure he will. You just have to deal with it and do the best with it."

Nick is doing his best to put his heartbreaking divorce behind him. His new album, "What's Left of Me," hits stores next Tuesday.
