Joey Fatone Gives Justin Timberlake Marriage Advice

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel may be keeping their engagement news under wraps, but Timberlake's *NSYNC band mate Joey Fatone dished out some marriage advice to his old friend in Parade magazine.

“Don’t listen to all the BS," Fatone told Parade. "Especially in his situation, he and his fiancé [Jessica Biel] -- I haven’t really talked to him about everything yet -- but they’re both in the limelight as well. It’s tough for those celebrity couples. It’s really hard."

Timberlake and Biel have been keeping a low profile since rumors suggested they became engaged in December. Though Biel stepped out -- sans ring -- at the Golden Globes in January, sources claim the actress has been sporting a rock on her engagement finger at more private affairs.

Though Timberlake and Biel have been together for quite some time, Fatone also knows a thing or two about having a marriage in the spotlight. He's been married to his longtime love, Kelly Baldwin, since 2004.

"My wife wasn’t in the limelight, which made it easier," he continued. "The key is to keep it happy, light and fun. There can be a lot of drama, like when you have kids. And both of them have jobs where they are taken to different places. It’s the communication that really needs to drive that relationship.”

Though an *NSYNC reunion isn't in the cards, Fatone admits the guys still see each other every once in a while.

“We saw each other for Chris’ [Kirkpatrick] 40th," he said. "I’m 35. We’re getting old! I had dinner with Chris recently and I talked to Justin, Lance [Bass] and JC [Chasez] during my birthday. We try to hook up together once in a while.”
