Lachey, Romijn head for Barnstable Brown

When Nick Lachey and Rebecca Romijn saunter into the Barnstable Brown Gala next Friday, two people will be conspicuously absent -- their famous spouses.

Make that ex-spouse in Romijn's case. The supermodel's divorce from actor John Stamos became official last month.

Don't get your hopes up, guys. BBG hostess Tricia Barnstable Brown says the former Sports Illustrated swimsuit diva will be accompanied by her new beau, actor Jerry O'Connell.

Lachey, however, will be flying solo. Wife Jessica Simpson, Lachey's BBG date in 2002 and '04, is too swamped with work to return this year, Barnstable Brown said. She has been shooting "The Dukes of Hazzard" movie in Louisiana and a variety show with Lachey that will air on ABC next month.

Lachey and Simpson recently pulled the plug on "Newlyweds," their popular MTV reality show. Lachey is working on an MTV show of his own, "The Nick Lachey Project."

Romijn is busy, too. She is currently filming "Man About Town" with Ben Affleck.

A few gossip columns have printed parts of a conversation Jerry and Rebecca had with the Interior decorator from "Oprah":

Romijn calm while beau gets needled for bedroom boost

Does Rebecca Romijn's boyfriend suffer from sexual dysfunction?

"Crossing Jordan" hunk Jerry O'Connell says he recently visited a female acupuncturist in L.A.'s Little Tokyo neighborhood, complaining of "problems in the bedroom."

"So they put all these needles into my lower stomach, and then she attaches these electrodes," the 31-year-old O'Connell regaled his tablemates at a lunch in Los Angeles that included his 32-year-old girlfriend and "Oprah" interior decorator Nate Berkus.

"Jerry likes to exaggerate," Romijn chimed in, adding that she later revealed to the acupuncturist that O'Connell, in truth, is a total stud in the lovemaking department.

"She freaked out," Romijn said. "She said you could do serious damage to your kidney or pancreas or whatever [with an unnecessary treatment]. They take acupuncture really seriously. It's like going to the hospital for them."

The 33-year-old Berkus - whose redesign of O'Connell's house will be featured on Monday's "Oprah" - confided that he was considering a different sort of treatment.

"I was thinking about getting some Restylane injections," Berkus blurted, referring to popular treatment to add volume to lips and fill in wrinkles and folds.

Romijn reassured him: "You totally don't need them."

Pair of parachute pants drops O'Connell into Romijn's life

So how did ``X-Men'' sexpot Rebecca Romijn hook up with her ``Crossing Jordan'' star boytoy Jerry O'Connell
All it took was a pair of ``M.C. Hammer-Buttafuoco pants and a cutoff shirt,'' according to the actress who was overheard dishing poolside in Beverly Hills by a spy for the Daily News.
Back in June, while the ex-Mrs. John Stamos was sunning herself poolside at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Jerry butted into a conversation about making a movie, ``choreographed to the Bellagio fountains,'' Romijn told ``Oprah'' interior designer Nate Berkus.
``He wanted to know if he could hold the `boom' for the movie,'' she giggled. ``He kept saying, `I'm an excellent boomer. Please let me boom for you.' ''
So she and her cabana mate agreed he could - only if O'Connell wore the offending parachute pants. Which he did. And they've been together ever since!
The former supermodel also told Berkus she and her ``Jake in Progress'' hubby actually separated a year before it hit the press after months of fighting.
``We fought from the very beginning, and we just fought and fought,'' Rebecca said. ``I just got sick of John being mad all the time. He was always so mad.''

Romijn tells why Stamos is her ex-man

'X-Men" stunner Rebecca Romijn, her "Crossing Jordan"-star boyfriend Jerry O'Connell and "Oprah" interior decorator Nate Berkus dished about their love lives during an intimate poolside lunch on Saturday at The Four Seasons Hotel in L.A.

The juicy stuff was traded within earshot of a Lowdown spy.

"Did you start dating instantly as soon as your marriage broke up?" Berkus was heard asking John Stamos' ex-wife, whose flack officially announced their separation in April 2004, after five years of marriage.

"Yeah, but we'd actually been separated a year before we told the press about it," Romijn confided. "We were in couples' therapy before and after we separated, and we briefly got back together. But we fought from the very beginning, and we just fought and fought. I just got so sick of John being mad all the time. He was always so mad."

As for O'Connell, Romijn told Berkus they initially met briefly at the Beverly Hills Hotel five years ago. "He made me laugh," she recalled.

But they didn't become an item until June 2004, when they met in Las Vegas - poolside at the Hard Rock Hotel - where Romijn was on hand for the Maxim Hot 100 party.

The shirtless O'Connell, lounging near her cabana, jumped into a conversation about making a movie "choreographed to the Bellagio fountains," Romijn explained.

"He wanted to know if he could hold the 'boom' for the movie," Romijn went on. 'He kept saying 'I'm an excellent boomer. Please let me boom for you.'"

She and a friend named "Steve" finally agreed to let O'Connell help out if he would wear "M.C. Hammer Buttafuoco pants and a cutoff shirt," Romijn said with a giggle.

He did - and they've been together ever since.

Yesterday, Hollywood flack Lewis Kay - who reps both Romijn and Stamos - said only: "It is unfortunate that your source would eavesdrop on what was obviously a private and personal conversation."
