98º will perform at fund-raiser

The members of pop group 98º will reunite Saturday to heat up Purgatory nightclub in Over-the-Rhine and boost former band member Justin Jeffre's campaign for mayor of Cincinnati.

Joining Jeffre will be the boy band's best-known member, Cincinnati native and "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" star Nick Lachey; Nick's brother, Drew Lachey; and Jeff Timmons.

Sorry, Jessica Simpson fans: The singer and "Dukes of Hazzard" co-star is expected to be in New York City this weekend working in the studio on her new album, says Andrew VanSickle, Purgatory's art director.

It will be only the second time the pop group has performed together since it last toured four years ago. The last time was on the ABC special 'Nick and Jessica's Family Christmas', which aired in December.

Jeffre says it was his idea to reunite 98º for the fund-raiser.

"All of them are very supportive of my campaign and believe that the city would do much better with me as mayor," he says.

Jeffre says one of the songs the band will perform will be "Invisible Man" because he believes local media have overlooked his campaign.

Admission to the event is a donation of $10 or more to the Justin Jeffre for Mayor campaign. Purgatory is a 21-and-up club.

VanSickle also notes that the club is a stone's throw from the School for Creative and Performing Arts, the alma mater of Jeffre and Nick and Drew Lachey.

"It will be a homecoming of sorts, and we'll be excited," he says.

The party lasts from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Purgatory, 221 E. 12th St. in Over-the-Rhine.

Nick ponders daytime TV
Written by Leslie

Former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey is considering an offer to join the cast of a daytime soap opera, according to celebrity magazine In Touch Weekly. ABC is allegedly courting Lachey by dangling a $10 million paycheck in front of him — more than nearly anyone else on daytime TV is making — although money isn't likely an issue since the careers of Nick and his wife, Jessica Simpson, went through the roof after their show "Newlyweds" shot their celebrity status into the stratosphere. Jessica's probably feeling a bit nervous right about now, given that the last time Nick appeared on TV it fueled rumors of a romance between Lachey and his "Charmed" co-star Alyssa Milano.

Nick on soaps??

Jeanette Wells, who writes msnbc.com's The Scoop, reports that Nick Lachey is in talks to join an unnamed daytime serial. Makes sense to me. It seems press coverage of his marriage to Jessica Simpson - and the ever-present rumors of an impending split -have been one long dress rehearsal for a soap opera.
