Sometimes, it is Vulture's sad duty to deliver news you don't want to hear, and today is no exception. Despite last week's desperately exciting rumors about a 98 Degrees reunion tour, Nick Lachey (better known to many of you as ex-Mr. Jessica Simpson) has pretty much shut down the possibility. "So psyched to see all the excitement for a 98 degree tour, but the only tour I'll be doing this summer is at baby's r 'us" he heartlessly tweeted yesterday.   Granted, he didn't totally rule out the idea of a tour at some point in the future, but no dice for Summer 2K12. Maybe Jeff Timmons can join up with one of the other dozen boy bands currently on the scene? Those Chippendales moves deserve a full tour.
