Vanessa's

Back Door Man

7/28/2006 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click here to return to TMZApparently Nick Lachey was longing for a little home cookin' last night, as he ditched his fancy Midtown Manhattan hotel room and moved up to galpal Vanessa Minnillo's dee-luxe apartment on the East Side.

Nick had a meaty repast at Virgil's BBQ on his own, then went back to the hotel so he could grab his bag on his way to his lady love's lair. Vanessa, on the other hand, hadn't changed from her hosting gig on "TRL" as she descended the hotel's stairs in a fetching pink minidress. Nick, for his part, eschewed his usual T-shirt-and-jeans for a proto-athletic getup celebrating the University of Cincinnati Bearcats.

And when he arrived at Minnillo's apartment complex, he went in the back door, possibly to avoid the building's gauntlet of doormen, who reportedly aren't as enamored of the more taciturn Nick as they were of Minnillo's last squeeze, New York Yankee Derek Jeter.

Who cares. i personally think Jessica fell for Nick and then got famous and thought she was too good for him all of a sudden. Little preachers daughter, huh? She's a ho who doesnt want to be married anymore because of all the other guys out there she could be screwing. I'm over it. Not that i think Nick has a hell of a career out there waiting for him but he does have happiness and everybody deserves that. Im personally glad that Jessica is having to sit back and watch him go on with his life. She left him. I wish Nick and Vanessa whatever they are both in it for, rather that be love, crazy sex or just infactuation. Rebound girl or not - they are both enjoying the moment! And no one can argue with that much!

I don't know how serious this relationship is, but I for one like to see Nick happy. From the first episode of Newlyweds I predicted their marriage would be over in 2 to 3 years. Jessica is a whiney, immature baby who can't make a decision w/out consulting with her daddy and I don't know how Nick put up with that. She tries to play it like she's the "preachers" daughter, but come one how many preachers do you know who live in a mansion, wear an earring and drive around in the best cars. Preacher my a$$. Joe Simpson is a money-hungry leach, who will sell his daughters if it meant making a few bucks. I for one think Joe's whole relationship with Jessica is a little "icky" and any father who would comment on his daughter's, ahem, "assets" has problems in my book. Nick is better off without her and her controlling family. I hope he is happy, but imo, its not with Vanessa. Something tells me that if Derek Jeter was ready to settle down with her, she jump so fast back into that relationship. I just hope she's not with Nick to further her career and exposure. If she is, something tells me Nick will bounce back. He seems like a "regular" guy and I hope he finds a really nice girl who wants to be with him because she loves him not to further her career.

vanessa is nothing but a rebound. Nick is still in love with Jessica. Vanessa is all over Nick all the time in public but Nick kind of looks like he doesn't even really want to be with her do you ever see Nick all over Vanessa out in public? Hell NO!

Vanessa is just some no talent ho who is seeking to further her career through association with someone who is really not that interesting to begin with.
The guy is so pathetic and jessica is so much bigger than he will ever be.

the man    

and more:

they are both such pathetic wanna be's.

Jessica was right to dump this loser.
All these hoes are just leaching up to him because he was with such a foxy girl like jessica. They are somehow hoping that her fame will somehow magically rub off on them. He looks gay anyway and dresses like a slob with no fashion sense.

Ahh excuse me! Nick was more established then Jessica when they first met. Who's money do you think she spent when they married? She only became more famous AFTER The Newlyweds, and mostly because she chose to "bare all" to see in every pix. Now, since Nick is heating up the charts again,.....oh well,....missed the boat Jess!

For all you haters ragging on Nick and saying that this no talent bimbo is so much bigger than him, then let me refresh your memory. It was NICK who paid for the house they lived in while filming NEwlyweds. It was also NICK who paid for their wedding. The only thing that we should all be mad at Nick for is the fact that he had her open for 98 degrees which put this dumb ass no talent whore on the map.
