Coed Doesn't Believe She Broke Up Nick and Jessica
November 30, 2005

For the first time, the girl who says she spent an intimate night with Nick Lachey is breaking her silence only to "Extra."

Danielle Calo, the 19-year-old Ohio college coed who has landed smack in the middle of the Jessica Simpson and Nick bust-up, told "Extra's" Carlos Diaz that Nick hit on her while making a guest appearance at a high school football game in Columbus, Ohio, in September.

"We hung out and just kissed," Calo said. "I was just the girl he picked that night."

Does Calo believe she broke up Simpson and Lachey's marriage? "There's no way I had that much of an effect on their marriage," she insisted. "No way."

Calo claims she and Nick shared an hour-long passionate kissing session, adding, "Yes, if my husband did it, I would consider it cheating."

Danielle claims she accepted an invitation to Nick's room at the Embassy Suites in Columbus, but she says they never had sex. "I looked at him and said, 'You're married,'" Calo said. "I said to him, 'If you think I'm that kind of girl, I'm not.'"

Calo, who admits she has a boyfriend, says while kissing Nick she could only think, "Oh my God, I'm kissing Nick Lachey."

Danielle says she left the hotel room before things could go any further. "I was just, 'This is going to stop.' I didn't want it to escalate. I already felt guilty just being there."

A source close to Lachey strongly denied the claims to "Extra," and now Calo says she wishes they never met. "I want this whole situation to be gone and go back to the way it was," she said.

Meanwhile, Simpson was seen having lunch with her best friend Tuesday at the trendy Orso's in Beverly Hills.
