Vanessa Minnillo Calls Jessica Simpson The 'Elephant In The Room'

vanessa minnillo talks jessica simpson

Looks like Vanessa can't quite shake the ghost of Nick & Jessica as a couple!

During Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo's TLC reality special Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding, the name Jessica Simpson came up, and NOT in an extremely positive light.

Vanessa seemed to be less-than-thrilled with all the paparazzi that have taken notice of her wedding to Nick, and she believes that it stems from her hubby's past with Jessica.

Here's what Vanessa had to say about it:

"It’s funny to me that they care, because I’d like to think that Nick and I are somewhat boring. But they care."

Vanessa has also referred to Jessica Simpson as the "elephant in the room," and we could understand why she'd feel that way! There's no escaping the history behind former newlyweds Nick and Jessica.

We just hope that the Jessica factor doesn't become a problem in Vanessa and Nick's marriage.

We wish them all the best, and hopefully the "elephant in the room" will seem less prominent over time.

    Hahahaha! "…I’d like to think that Nick and I are somewhat boring." Yes, yes you are.

  2. 2

    They get married for reality tv and yet she is surprised that paparazzi show up? If she didn't want that, they should have done it privately.

    Re: jay_ay_dee_e – Ditto but WTH on the rest of it I call bs, it was insert new girl different look and not a virgin. OK cameras ready………

    Lmao, "It’s funny to me that they care," It's funny to me that she thinks they care!

    It's funny because he's a has-been and god knows what Vanessa does for a living. At least Jessica is rolling in the dough and had the last laugh.

    I think people will always compare both relationships but they're different in their own way. Some people need to get over it and just let them be. If you want to talk bad about Vanessa don't forget Jessica left Nick to be single only to fuck lots of men including a douche called John Mayer. Meanwhile the only girlfriend I remember Nick having was Vanessa so they have made it work. Congratulations to Nick and Vanessa and hopefully they will make it last. :)

    Well on the bright side it is probably the first time an xwife has actually created an influx of cash to the new wife. Pictures without Jessica legacy = .50 cents, Pictures with Jessica legacy = greater than .50 cents.

    Literally the ONLY reason anybody cares about them or their wedding is because of Jessica Simpson. The only reason 90% of people know who she is is because she's the girl who Jessica Simpson's ex dated.

    Jessica is who made her into a household name, I'd still have no fucking clue who she was if tabloids didn't constantly make up shit about Jessica being soooooo sad about Nick finding somebody, or the "competition" and alleged stealing of thunder with also announcing engagements and suspected baby bumps.

    Stupid girl, nobody cares about you or Nick, it's all about Jessica. Neither of them are relevant, they can't get attention on their own, I can hardly read a story about them without Jess being squeezed into it somehow.

    I don' think she has anything to worry about. I watched the show and he fits Vanessa so well. He looks so comfortable with her and she seems so dedicated to him. I think they will do fine! I wish them the best.

  11. 11

    why does anybody care at all about them. wasn't he in one of those shit boy bands 10 years ago. don't know what she's up to.

  12. 12

    The only reason they got a reality show is because of Jessica. And don't forget, Perez, Vanessa called Jessica a bad word which was bleeped before she said she had to block Jessica after she was congratulating her and Nick on her iphone.

    PINK elephant ya twit

  14. 14

    If not for Nick's former marriage to Jessica Simpson, Vanessa wouldn't have the tiniest fraction of the media attention she craves so badly. Who does this fame whore think she's kidding?

  15. 15

    Sorry Mario this was reported by Eonline YESTERDAY MORNING> Trying getting some scoop on your own!

  16. 16

    Awwww, she's jealous of Jess. Maybe cuz nobody knows who the fuck Vannessa IS.

  17. 17

    I actually saw the show and it has changed my perception of Vanessa She is a down to earth gal and you can see how much Nick LOVES her. She was very kind when speaking about Jessica.

  18. 18

    last time I checked it been NIck & Vanessa making there marriage very public & it had nothing to do with Jessica. last time I checked it was Vanessa & Nick with a sex pool tape. Nick was also known for his hard partying & niteclubbing & womanizing that created issues in his & Jess marriage. Vanessa was in the pic long before Jess was in any realtionship with anyone.Jess is quoted as saying ahe has not spoken to Nick since the divorce. Sounds like Nick might have some issues maybe.

    I wish nothing but good things for both couple but be careful what you spout off.. Nick is still a womanizer

  19. 19

    despite how quirky jessica simpson is, she will always be way more famous and liked by the public. Vanessa Minnillo is only famous because she dated nick lachey who is only famous for marrying jessica simpson. so yeah, you bet your ass she's jealous of jessica simpson

  20. 20

    Wow.. lol a lot of you are haters.. wtf? And i can for sure call you a HATER.. because you are talking shit about someone who is not even a mean person nor full of herself.. did you asses even watch it?
    She said she and nick ARE boring and she doesn't get why the paps care.. and yes they do care because they were there trying to get pictures you dumbasses.. how was that being full of herself?
    and another thing Jessica ONLY got popular when she dated nick.. no one gave a fuck about her till she dated him then made a reality show and got all these endorsements.. a lot of you don't know anything i swear.. she owes a lot of her fame to him too..
    one more thing..
    i believe Jessica was the one that left and fucked around on Nick when he wanted to work things in their marriage out..
    go look it up.. she fucked Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville.. and then after she got to divorced it was Adam Levign, Dallas Cowboys moron, smashing pumpkin heads whatever singer, John Mayer.. who knows who else..
    its all been proven too.. go look it up..
    yet everyone is throwing a bitch fit about Vanessa and Nick who have been dating only each other for 5 years?
    I just said all this cause i honestly don't get why everyone likes Jessica..
    and she wasn't calling Jessica the elephant in the room.. she meant the fact that Jessica got engaged at the same time as Nick being the big elephant in the room because they wanted to know what she thought about it…

  21. 21

    Perez I don't understand why you are saying this. I watched the special twice and not once did she call Jessica Simpson an elephant. In fact you are the one that posted here pictures of jessica simpson coming out of Adam Levine's hotel room when she was still married to Nick.

  22. 22

    Also why would Nick and Vanessa worry about Jessica? Jessica has dated John Mayer seriously and Tony Romo seriously, while Nick has only been serious with Vanessa. I don't know why you are bringing this up. Plus Vanessa dated Yankee Derek Jeter and it was You who posted on this site how much Derek Jeter cheated on Vanessa with Jessica Alba who he allege gave herpes to, and you said he cheated on Vanessa throughout their relatioonship which is why Vanessa left Derek Jeter. Also Derek Jeter asked Jessica Simpson out on a date after Vanessa and Nick started dating. Jessica said she turned him down and told Nick. I think it was a douche move regarding Derek Jeter who was dumped since Derek Jeter is known as a serial celebrity dater. Check his hollywood record.

    Re: silverryder – But Jessica and Nick have been over, moved on, and Jessica has been trying to get Tony Romo to marry her. The reason she and Nick didn't work out is because her father. Plus Nick made Jessica more famous than she was by marrying her and being in that show. She was hardly known before she got with Nick. He was more famous than she was. You jessica /Nick lovers need to move on. Jessica has been through two serious relationships between her and Nick. Now she's engaged to be married to her unemployed fiance who is a divorcee just like her. Nick and Jessica have all moved on maybe the press and fans need to move on as well.

    Re: jenjencupcake – Thank you. I thought Perez had changed. He was the one kissing up to Vanessa at her birthday party with pictures. He was also the one who said Vanessa dumped Jeter because all he did was cheat on her. Perez must not have written this because he had pictures posted of he and Vanessa and he acted like they were good friends. So sick of the woo is me and Jessica paid for all. Nick and Jessica fan club need to get over it. They are over and both moved on. Derek Jeter tried to get Jessica to go out with him to get back at Nick, but it didn't work. Google it, Jessica told Nick about it. Derek Jeter being the douche he is this doesn;t surprise me.

  25. 25

    OK so lets go there JenJen. You read too many tabloids you think is truth so lets try this. Vanessa & Nick have sex tape right, Maybe we want to look at all the men Vanessa dated in the past or maybe we want to go with her litt;e girl on girl action with Lindsey Lohan.. & involving knives.. both sex tape & Lindsey & Vanessa on pics on net. Mnay of you choose to forget Vanessa & Ncks past history & yes even when he wa still with Jess.. were you in Jes bedroom maybe.. Lets see Nick dating girls underage with Leinart I believe Kirsten Cavillira was one of them ( spelling I know). Whats good for one in the tabloids ahs to be good for the other right JEN JEN? Just because she was out with theem or tabloids sais they were does not make it so but what cannot be disputed is racy pics.

    Should have never televised there wedding NICK & Vanessa it opened old wounds for all.but then NIck & Vanessa needed that drama to promote themsleves. Nick & Jess were a couple at one time & had a show. Jess had & has the personality to outshine NICK period & he knows it regardless of 98 degress. IT woudl still be a has been band right now good at one time & nothing to offer. He got paid in his divorce & if he blew it all so be it. Looks like he is in need of money again.

    Sweetheart, apply this sort of passion to something IMPORTANT, and go change the world!

  27. @v@ says – reply to this


    Well, that's awkward vernacular.

    Who cares about Vanessa Minillo? She is not attractive and is famous for nothing. The best part is that Jessica is laughing all the way to the bank because she actually has a career unlike Vanessa and Nick. If you ask me, poor Vanessa is probably just extremely jealous that she will never reach the wealth or popularity of Jessica Simpson. Bless her heart, that must be tough.
