OK! magazine has paid almost half-a-million dollars to buy the uncensored pictures of Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo having sex in a hot tub in Mexico, but don't expect to see them any time soon. The celebrity friendly magazine bought them to keep them off the market and to make sure no one else could publish them. The Daily News says:
OK! shelled out $400,000 for sex photographs and accompanying video of Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo."There's much worse stuff than what got out there on the Internet," says a snitch. "If Nick's fans saw it all, it would definitely change his career, because he kind of has a squeaky-clean image."But don't expect to see any steamy pics in the mag's pages.In accordance with their celebrity-friendly policy and recent Lachey-Minnillo cover story, OK! shelled out the money to take the material off the market, says a source.
Nick should just release them because he's fuckin boring. This could only help. It's his girlfriend, and she's hot, so what's the big deal. His fans won't be mad because his fans are too busy knitting scarves for their cats or buying ice cream or crawling around on their retarded mutant flippers, or whatever it is shut-ins and weirdos do.
UPDATE – one reason Nick doesn't want these released might be because this time last year, Jessica Simpson was quoted as saying, "Nick didn't pack too well if you know what I mean, but I got over it." She also said, "Nick's small package was a problem sometimes, like the first time we had sex, to tell you the truth, I didn't really feel much, I faked the whole thing, I really felt sorry for him, I still loved him though."
