Remember when Nick Lachey was considered really cool and you couldn’t go five minutes without hearing one of his hit songs on the radio? Yeah me neither, but for some reason that doofus is famous, and he somehow parlayed that into three years of sex with Vanessa Minnillo and, reportedly, a kiss on the cheek from Jessica Simpson. Alas…
“Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are over. A publicist for the actress and former MTV VJ confirmed to E! News that she and the 98 Degrees alum ‘have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another.’
Minnillo, 28, first hooked up with Lachey, 35, in 2006 after meeting during the shoot for his music video for ‘What’s Left of Me.’ She had just ended her three-year romance with New York Yankees star Derek Jeter, and he had just gotten divorced from singer Jessica Simpson.”
He shouldn’t even be upset. He got three years. He shouldn’t have gotten her phone number. She’s way too hot for that dullard, with his follow-the-herd tattoos (these) and his sunken, string-beany chest (this). He had some heat when they first hooked up, but at some point she was bound to realize that the 1998 Miss Teen USA should be doin’ someone better than the guy boxing a kangaroo at Northshore Fords Summer Dealin’ Days.
