Jessica 'Doing Okay' After Split

Jessica Simpson plans to spend her first Christmas since splitting from husband Nick Lachey with her parents and sister in Hawaii, PEOPLE has learned.

As for how she's faring after filing for divorce on Friday, "She's doing okay," a source close to Simpson tells PEOPLE. "She is emotional, and as upsetting as this is, she knows she made the right decision."

Though the couple announced their split last month after three years of marriage, the source says that Simpson and Lachey got together on Friday for a short time. "He came over to her parent's house. They spent a little time together and they said their goodbyes."

In other words, don't expect a reconciliation. "The fact that she filed tells you that it's going to be over. It wasn't something she took lightly," the source says. "Friday was an emotional day. As far as people saying it's going to get nasty, if it were, I don't think they would spend an hour and a half together like they did."

Since their split, Simpson has been staying at her parents' house in L.A. while Lachey remains at the couple's Calabasas, Calif., home.

Meanwhile, Lachey has hired Los Angeles-based attorney Laura Wasser. "He was hoping for the best, but as time went by, he was prepared for what became inevitable," a source close to him tells PEOPLE.

Jessica and Nick - No One Cares

The split between Jessica Simpson and former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lechay apparently was not big surprise. What is more surprising though, is that no one really seemed to care.

It is actually refreshing though to see that we are not getting wrapped up in the celebrity lives as much as the media would like us to, despite their greatest efforts to make us think we are entwined or absorbed.

The fact is, that we have become jaded, and maybe even callused, when it comes to the sensationalized lives of celebrities.

We have enough of our own problems, than to be worrying about the lastest celebrity marriage, debacle, divorce, breakup, and more.

Jessica Simpson's attempt to dance like the sensational latin singer Shakira in her "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" rendention got more attention than her split with Nick - as well it should have in my opinion.

Time to cut back on the handbags

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's divorce may get nasty... the couple didn't get a pre-nup before their 2002 wedding.

Jessica made $35 million last year alone and it looks like she will suffer most. Californian divorce laws say that all assets should be split equally when there's no documentation to prove otherwise.

Jessica has hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to handle her case, who famously represented Angelina Jolie when she split from Billy Bob Thornton.

Jessica Simpson And Nick Lachey Split

After a highly publicized romance, a reality-series marriage and eventually tabloid rumors of strife, Jessica Simpson nude and Nick Lachey officially announced their split on Wednesday to Us Weekly

"After three years of marriage, and careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," the couple said in a joint statement released to the magazine. "This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other. We hope that you respect our privacy during this difficult time."

Rumors about tension between the two had grown louder and louder in recent months. Us Weekly even reported that the couple had quietly split just over one month ago. Officially, however, spokespeople for the two flatly denied a split was in the cards.

Jessica Simpson nude pictures and Lachey were married in fall 2002. Their starry-eyed love and down-home personas (she the bumbling but lovable blonde, he the Rust-Belt everyman looking for ways to keep her spending in check) made the reality show chronicling their first das of marriage, "Newlyweds," a breakout hit for MTV. Simpson was able to parlay that success into renewed interest in her music career, and also into a now-budding stint in Hollywood.
