    Since then, Simpson, 26, and Lachey, 33, whose divorce became final on June 30, have clearly moved on, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue.

    Simpson decamped to her own Beverly Hills mansion and has kept busy with music and movie work. "She's doing great," Simpson's stylist and BFF Ken Paves, tells PEOPLE, while Simpson says that this Thanksgiving will be spent with family in Texas.

    "I'm going to Waco with my family. I look forward to just seeing my grandparents and giving them a big hug and cooking with my grandma and my family," she tells PEOPLE. "And just kind of being normal for a little bit."

    Asked what she's most grateful for this Thanksgiving, after all that has happened since the last one, Simpson replies: "My family is always No. 1 on my thank-you list. Their support and love (are) unconditional. Nothing can rock it."

    And Simpson has a new plan for reeling in men: DVDs, she says (the singer is working on a new promotional campaign for Blockbuster Video). "You ask a guy to bring over a movie they want you to watch, and I think it would tell a lot about them," she says, though she notes: "It hasn't worked yet."

    Overall, though, she's "really good," she says, and she'll soon starting shooting her new movie, Blond Ambition, with Luke Wilson. It's about "a small-town girl moving to the city and making it in the corporate world, and she never expected to make it there," she says.

    Meanwhile, Lachey, who is renovating a Bel Air bachelor pad, has amped up his music career with a gold-selling album and nationwide tour. He's also found love again with MTV's TRL host Vanessa Minnillo, 26, whom he's been dating for seven months.

    "The first few months were hard," a pal of Lachey's tells PEOPLE of Nick's life after his split from Simpson. "But Nick finally realized he was in a better place.
