Nick's Love Life is Really Important

Nick's Love Life is Really Important

US Weekly decided to forget about Melgate and all the crazy LL stories this week to bring us a very important cover story about Nick and his new lady. A little weird right? Anyway, it's pretty funny to see this cover and the reasons Nick prefers Vanessa considering the last post I just wrote about Chestica.

“She’s a guys’ girl,” says a friend of the couple. “Jessica was always about going somewhere that was a scene with a big entourage. Vanessa can play darts and chill.” Minnillo also scores points for being a fellow sports nut. Whereas Simpson rolled her eyes at Lachey’s passion, Minnillo revels in it.

In fact, when she and Lachey were still in the platonic friendship stage, “Nick commented on his love for the [hometown NFL team], Cincinnati Bengals and Vanessa blew him away by running off the team’s poor stats,” says a Lachey source. “He tells friends, ‘It’s like talking to your best guy friend, but she’s a smoking-hot chick.’”

On a snarkier, note, a Minnillo pal adds, “Nick keeps telling Vanessa the difference between her and Jessica is that she is extremely intelligent.”

She is extremly not for him, jessica and him were the best couple, i really dislike her, its not just the same. I just cant believe that they split, and on top of that, i belive she is just acting like a guys chick, just to win him. Nick and Jessica should defently get back together. Who thinks that Nick and Jessica are still in love with eachother?

I think Nick is a punk. He hates that Jess has a good career. I think that he was cheating before the separation. Watch out Vanessa! If he cheated on her he'll sheat on you too. Yes her family got in the middle of things, but it looks like Nick wasn't big enuf of a man to handle it.

I believe it...we will never have proof unless jackass guy does a Wilmar.

JK, I still dont believe that Jackass thing and still dont really think Jessica had an affair. Unjtil its proven I will not believe it. They broke up because Jessica was wondering and partying too much and didnt spend time with him....Maybe Im being naive. I dont belive Vanessa and have no sympathy for her. She probably practiced and memorized all the football stuff just to make an impression on Nick....Everyone knows he loves sports

My sympathy is starting to waine as he is milking the whole thing TOO obviously can not get past Jesscia...sad seeing as while he was in love she was having an coochie internally examined by the guy from Jackass.

Oh yay...Nick made the cover of US. when will this ever end?? I could care less about Nick Lachey and his nobody GF. I'm tired of hearing about Chestica, too. *SIGH*

I am not surprised Vanessa is into sports, look at who she dated. My husband played ball overseas, and we are die hard basketball fans, so I do not think it is odd for a girl to love sports. I do , however, not trust Vanessa. I think she has alterior motives here. I also think she will be back with jeter within 2 months.

Nick didn't do this interview with Us, he never talks to them. He didn't pose for the magazine either, I saw the same pic of him in InStyle a couple of years ago. And as far as Vanessa's past, she's a military kid, her parents divorced, her mother remarried and she lived with her in the middle east. I read somewhere, she was basically in the midst of the Gulf War. Plus, I don't think she has the greatest relationship with her mother. I read somewhere that her mom basically abandoned her and her brother, and gave them to her dad to raise.

why don't some of you saying that jessica and vanessa are the same look at above picture of vanessa and compare it to the post below titled chestica simpson. nough said.
ethiopian_princess ethiopian_princess 9 years
sasha, that's unfair. lots of people are not well known, but very few people are as dumb as jessica
sasha3 sasha3 9 years
I don't see a difference between jessica and venessa. when the both started to date Nick, they were not well know.
ethiopian_princess ethiopian_princess 9 years
sure it's hard to stomach but it's true. most guys do this. the difference is that it's not public and the ex will probably never find out. haven't your exes ever told you something similar, i.e. "i love how you're not clingy like my ex gf" or "it's so cool how you don't play games" etc.??
