Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo (er, Lachey) got married and had a baby a couple of years ago, and now they’re ready to expand their family yet again: they’re expecting baby #2, and this time it’s a little girl!

Nick announced the news via Twitter, as you do, and it was kinda sweet:


It’s kinda sad how irrelevant these two are, but I think they’re sweet, I guess, and it’s good that they’re happy? I dunno, I’m trying to muster anything other than apathy when it comes to this news. Yay, babies?

Nick Lachey Advises Boy Bands To Stay Away From Taylor Swift; I Advise The World To Stay Away From Nick Lachey

You may remember Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees or his marriage to Jessica Simpson. He’s done other things since, but they matter even less than the ones I mentioned. Because of this, you probably don’t care what he has to say about anything at all – especially not his thoughts on the Taylor Swift and Harry Styles romance. And yet, when asked what advice he would give to other boy bands (because, you know, 98 Degrees are still ruling the charts)…

From MTV News:

“Stay away from Taylor Swift!” Nick Lachey added. “She’ll write a song about you… Oh! I’m too late on that one. I didn’t get to [that advice] fast enough. [The song will] be a hit, but it will be about you.”

Yeah, because I’m sure you haven’t written a song about an ex. Oh wait, that’s right, you didn’t write your own songs. Shut up.

I won’t go on about how much it annoys me that Taylor is painted like this annoying harpy while Styles – who, and I’ll say it again, has had even more relationships/partners than Swift, I’m sure – is written off as some studly playboy in the prime of his youth. Is Taylor Swift obnoxious? Probably, but she’s also 24 so it’s kind of an oxy moron. Of course she doesn’t have her shit entirely together. Of course she’s a mess. We all were at that age, we just had the luxury of not having our every move studied by the press.

Anyway, Nick Lachey sucks. That’s really the whole point of this article.

Nick Lachey Got Into a Fight at a Football Game, I Almost Didn’t Even Bother Telling You

Why? Well, because Nick Lachey just doesn’t really even matter anymore—not that he really ever has, but … OK, let’s put it this way: Nick Lachey matters less today than he ever has before, does that sound good?

Anyway, the gist of the story is that Nick Lachey got into a shouting match with a guy at a San Diego Chargers game earlier this weekend, choked the guy when the guy didn’t succumb to the superior form that is Nick Lachey, and then called the guy’s wife a “f-cking bitch” because she made an awesome crack about Nick Lachey’s former boyband, 98 Degrees or whatever they were called. From TMZ:

Nick Lachey isn’t just a heckler … he CHOKED a San Diego Chargers fan at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday and called the guy’s wife a “f**king b*tch” … this according to multiple people involved in the incident … but Nick says it’s all BS.

TMZ has obtained new video … which shows Lachey getting aggressive with a Chargers fan who was wearing an Igor Olshansky #99 jersey (Igor played for SD from 2004 to 2008).

We spoke to the guy in the jersey … who tells us Lachey and his buddies — all die-hard Bengals fans — had been talking trash to him about the jersey for most of the 2nd half of the game.

The Chargers fan says Lachey made one particularly offensive comment about Olshansky that crossed the line … and that’s when the fan’s wife shot back to Nick, “Well, he lasted longer than your boy band.”

We’re told Lachey flipped out and called the wife a “f**king b*tch” … along with “a host of other profanities.”

Tensions exploded … and the Chargers fan says Nick lunged towards him … grabbed him by the throat and shoved him to the ground. The fight can be seen in the footage obtained by TMZ.

As we previously reported, stadium security quickly responded and ejected Nick and his buddies. The Chargers fans were NOT asked to leave.

After the incident, Nick went to Twitter and BRAGGED about the situation — saying, “Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn’t be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals.”

He later acknowledged the altercation … tweeting, “i simply don’t appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction.”

We’re told the Chargers fan plans to file a police report against Lachey.

Nick’s rep tells TMZ, “This is a gross misrepresentation of what happened. It was nothing but a spirited debate between fans of opposing teams. At no point did Nick say anything derogatory to the man’s wife and anything to suggest the contrary is simply untrue.”

So hey, Nick Lachey is a big, stupid dickhead, and this is something that I knew and mentioned months ago, if not longer, but no. There were still some people around who thought this guy was a sweet-hearted, good-natured young man. And those who thought that, hey, guess what? You were wrong. This guy is a Dick with a capital D.

Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey Are Going to Have a Baby!

Like, not figuratively, “maybe down the road” or anything, literally. These two are literally going to have a baby!

From Starpulse:

Nick Lachey and his new bride Vanessa Minnillo are expecting their first child less than a year after they wed.

The ex-98 Degrees star and his TV presenter wife got married in a secret ceremony in July last year and they announced on TV on Monday that Minnillo is pregnant.

Lachey tells “Live! With Kelly,” “She was in New York and I was in the Bahamas. She went to the store and got a pregnancy test and it came back positive. We’re having a baby!… This is the one thing that more than any other I’ve looked forward to, and it’s overwhelming.”

Lachey said the couple has already discussed a name for the child, adding, “If it’s a girl, I think it might be Sophia. If it’s a boy, I’m not sure.”

He also joked his wife’s baby bump was initially blamed on too many calories, saying, “It just looked like she had eaten a really big burrito for a while… She loves, she craves Mexican food right now. She could eat a burrito a day so you can imagine what our house smells like right about now.”

The baby is due later this year.

Awesome! I mean, can you imagine what it’d be like if Jessica Simpson wasn’t pregnant at this juncture of her life and she heard this news? After Tony Romo being pregnant and having babies and what not with his new girlfriend or wife or whatever she is these days? Man. So glad Jess beat Nick to the punch on this one, because if she hadn’t, it’d be some pretty uncomfortable circumstances when she and Nick rekindle their romance thirty or forty years down the road and air all of their past errors on a redux of Newlyweds. Thank God for small favors, you know?

Oh, and congrats to Nick and Vanessa! Looking forward to seeing that burgeoning baby bump on Winter Wipeout (I’m not the only one who does watch that show, right?).

Nick Lachey is Marrying Another Idiot, So By Default, He’s Also an Idiot

Nick Lachey was famously married to the sweet but loony Jessica Simpson for a few years (you may have seen something on TV about that, *eyeroll*) but that doesn’t seem to be stopping him from marrying someone who seems equally ditzy.

Vanessa Minnillo recently did an interview with People.com about her upcoming wedding/marriage to Nick and after reading what she had to say, I have to wonder if their marriage is just going to be Newlyweds: The Remix. I’ve pulled some of Vanessa’s best (read: worst) quotes from the piece to share with you here:

On why she knows things with Nick will last forever: “The best part is that you know someone has your back, no matter what. It’s not that I didn’t know that before – I kind of teetered on it – but now I know for sure that no matter what, this guy’s got my back. There’s nothing we can’t work out, and there’s nothing we can’t talk through. There’s no obstacle we can’t overcome, and that’s a beautiful, comforting thought.”

On her wedding cake: “I love all flavors. I might have to do different layers and different flavors.”

On whether or not her dog will be the ring bearer at her wedding: “If he is, it’s going to take a lot of training and discipline, because right now he’s just too shy. He’d panic down the aisle and probably run off with the rings. Maybe I should get started on that, right?”

1) What exactly is it that she and Nick have seen each other through? The end of his messy, public divorce? Both of their careers floundering as the public loses interest in them at a rapid pace? These two haven’t run out of money, had a kid or even had to learn what it’s like to live life completely out of the spotlight. How it is that she’s certain there’s nothing they can’t handle is unclear to me.

2) How can she decide on a life partner when she can’t even pick a flavor of cake to serve?

3) This woman doesn’t know how to say no. If a reporter asked me if I was going to strap a ring to my dog and send him running down the aisle at my wedding, I’d cock my head and say, “He’s a dog. No,” but instead Vanessa gives some 30-second explanation about how her dog is shy and needs training before he can be given that big of a responsibility. Get with it, home chicken.

Wedding Wars: Jessica Vs. Nick?

According to sources close to Jessica Simpson, girlfriend’s in such a frenzy to tie the knot with her boyfriend – the one that I still have not remembered a name, nor do I feel so inclined to Google it right now – before ex-husband Nick Lachey marries Vanessa Minnillo, and she’s willing to rush to fit everything in before Christmas in order to ‘win.’

We’re looking at a dual Christmas wedding here, guys.

According to friends of the blushing bride-to-be:

“She wants to beat Nick to the altar. She knows that it is going to be tough to pull everything together on such short notice, so it might have to be a New Years wedding. In any case, she wants the focus to be on her wedding. She doesn’t want her wedding to be the aftermath of his.”

Not only is Jessica allegedly pulling out all the stops in order to beat Nick and Vanessa to the altar, she’s also looking at dropping quite a considerable sum on the wedding, too, in an effort to upstage her ex’s nuptial plans:

“It will be big and elaborate. She’ll spare no expensive for fear that Nick and Vanessa will outdo her. She’s already starting planning everything and has every family member working on her big day.”

… This sounds like it’s going to end well. And incidentally, if you haven’t heard, Jessica is currently refusing to sign a pre-nup agreement with her boytoy, because it’s just not all that romantic, I guess. (And for all of you caught unaware of her previous marriage and it’s intricacies, she didn’t sign one with Nick Lachey, either, and he took her for 15 million.)

I hope none of this is true, and I really hope that Jess is smarter than most people give her credit for, but I’ll lay it down for you: the pre-nup thing really has me concerned, I’m not gonna lie.

Quotables: Jessica Simpson is So Happy For Nick Lachey

“I am extremely, extremely happy for him. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. … My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ And I was just in complete shock. You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago, so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I wish them nothing but the best.”

Do you, Jess? Do you really? Because you’re right; it doesn’t seem like anyone can really let this go. But I think these people often forget – you were the one who filed for divorce, weren’t you? You could still probably have that smarmy-voiced git if you really, really wanted him, you know. And people just don’t get it. Nick Lachey wouldn’t even have Vanessa Minnillo if it weren’t for you, girl. And don’t let that torture you, ’cause you’re much better off without his oily arse.
