*NSYNC Timeline – January 2005

02 – Joey’s original scheduled last date for LSOH?
03 – JC and Eva photographed in the rain in Miami
04 – “Mother” Teresa LaBarbera Whites has been named Vice President A&R for the Zomba Label Group by Sr. VP U.S. Records Labels Peter Thea… In her new position, Whites will take on A&R responsibilities for certain Zomba artists, including JC Chasez, and will work on the new album by Backstreet Boys…
04 – Lance’s semi-final episode of Celebrity Blackjack premieres on Game Show Network
05ish – Rumors that Justin proposed to Cameron over New Years. Tabloids point out “canary yellow diamond ring on her engagement finger.”
05 – Justin and Cameron photographed at Angelina Osteria restaurant, West Hollywood. (Cameron wearing ring.)
05 – A blind item from NY Daily News: One of the show’s housewives appears to be more desperate than the others for publicity. Sources say that her ambivalent boyfriend does a lot less kissing when there are no cameras around.
05 – JC and Eva are nominated for MTV’s TRL Awards for “Breakout Couple”
05 – JC photographed at the 2005 Volkswagen Jetta Premiere Party, LA. (soundstage at Formosa and Santa Monica). From World of Wonder: “Hi, I’m JC,” said JC Chasez to someone, as if they didn’t know. The someone may have been Simon Rex, who was right there, but there were others close by he could have been addressing. Adrien Brody, for example. Anyway, the fact that Chasez, in a fauxhawk, thought he had to introduce himself to anyone was kind of endearing. But we wondered why he wasn’t with girlfriend Eva Longoria, who was nowhere to be seen. And this event was somewhere to be seen.
05 – From E!Online Fashion Police: Bland and Deliver – JC Chasez used to ring our chimes, but we don’t hear any bells at the Volkswagen Jetta Hollywood bash. JC’s pizza-boy look – baggy low-rise jeans, white belt, Converse sneaks, striped shirt, khaki jacket, stubble and a faux-hawk – wouldn’t impress real-life love Eva Longoria or the other Desperate Housewives on Wisteria Lane. Bet Nicollette Sheridan wouldn’t even give him 30 minutes or less. Our rating: * (one star)
