Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey Shock the World (well, actually they didn’t)

It’s pretty amazing how insatiable the public’s desire for celebrity news has become. With young celebrities like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Nicole Richie running into adult trouble like jail time, custody battles, rehab, and babies, there is so much juicy controversy out there that it is hard to not get excited. Although the celebrity media loves having the right to be outraged (which they exercise quiet a lot), sometimes news come out that really can’t be considered news. A few weeks ago, reports started surfacing out of Mexico that a famous celebrity couple had been photographed during a particularly wild time in the country. These steamy pictures were said to really shock the world and potentially damage (or enhance) the celebrity couple’s careers. Well, some of the pictures have come out and they’re a bit meh. First of all, the celebrity couple in question was nick lachey and vanessa minnillo. No offense to these two, who are undoubtedly very nice individuals and a cute couple, but they don’t exactly have a ton of star power. A singer for the B-list boy band, 98 Degrees, Nick Lachey first gained prominence by raising the temperature in fellow b-list pop starlet, Jessica Simpson’s heart. However, these two toiled below the surface until a decision to make a reality TV show that followed their lives following their wedding made them pop culture phenomenons. The reality TV show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica propelled the two into stardom. With huge television ratings, Newlyweds breathed new life into Jessica Simpson’s music career and turned Nick into a celebrity. Although the reality TV show undoubtedly bolstered their careers, it also destroyed their marriage. Eventually, the couple divorced with many expecting Jessica Simpson to continue her ascension to mega stardom and Nick Lachey becoming a footnote in pop culture. However, channeling his sadness into his music, the nick lachey what’s left of me album that had ambiguous references that could be interpreted to be about Jessica Simpson was an unexpected success. To make matters even better for nick lachey, the nick lachey what’s left of me video featured a beautiful Polynesian girl who was gaining fame on MTV, a lovely lady by the name of Vanessa Minnillo. Vanessa Minnillo has always been blessed with good looks. While other teenagers were wondering if they were pretty enough, vanessa minnillo was being crowed Miss Teen USA. Her beauty led to a three year on and off relationship with New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter. While Vanessa Minillo may have been a known commodity among celebrity circles, she slowly crept to fame based on her hosting stint for the hugely popular MTV series, Total Request Live. As the starlet continues to pursue more high profile acting appearances, she has become a fixture on the tabloids due to her relationship to Nick Lachey. The coupling of vanessa minillo and nick lachey have allowed the two to remain in the public eye, as it seems that celebrity magazines love to report on real life celebrity couples. While the two tend to have a relatively clean image, photos of the couple having sex while vacationing in Mexico has surfaced. As people have become agape and curious about pictures that show vanessa minillo nude and nick lachey nude, Lachey was there to bring some relatively common sense to the whole issue. As Lachey told British celebrity magazine, OK!, “Where’s the scandal? I was in Mexico with my girlfriend of a year, celebrating our anniversary on a private vacation. It’s not like I was caught with a Mexican hooker. We’ve all gone out and had a few too many and done something stupid. We’ve all made mistakes.” While many fans of the couple that have dreamt about seeing either nick lachey naked or Vanessa minnillo naked were holding their breath to have their dreams come true, it appears that OK! magazine has decided to purchase the sexy photos with the intent of not publishing them. As it would appear, it looks like much ado about nothing.
