Nelly: I Am Married To Every Woman On The Show

Posted: Updated:

Like the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team that he loves, Nelly keeps moving forward.

It's been 13 years since he released his debut album, "Country Grammar," and he's still on top. So what's his secret?

Nelly says he's "been real blessed" throughout his career, but he's also made a conscious effort to change with the times. "You've got to be versatile," he explained on 'Chelsea Lately.' "You have to understand that evolution is inevitable. Everything's going to change so you have to be willing to change with it."

Nelly's latest album, called "M.O." is now on sale, and he's back for the second season of the BET reality show, "Real Husbands of Hollywood."  (He tells Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A. why he's featured on "Real Husbands ..." even though he isn't married.)

Oh, and sorry Dodger fans, his St. Louis Cardinals look like they're going to the World Series.
