Vanessa Minnillo, 'Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding'Nick Lachey is back on reality television with his wife. Only it's not Jessica Simpson, though her presence is still felt in 'Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding' (Sat., 9PM ET on TLC).

While he was marrying Vanessa Minnillo in this special, it's his past with Simpson that made this event a paparazzi picture parade.

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

Her other concern was what she dubbed "the elephant in the room." As she and Lachey were planning their dream wedding, Jessica Simpson was also engaged to NFL tight end Eric Johnson.

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 21st 2011 3:15PM
On 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated), Billy Bush made a relatively innocent gesture, casually draping his arm around co-host Kit Hoover to illustrate how Nick Lachey put the moves on Vanessa Minnillo for the first time.

But Hoover is either thinking of something else entirely, or just gets it plain wrong when she refers to Bush's move as "the reach-around."

A Sore Loser on 'True Beauty'Judges Carson Kressley, Beth Stern and Vanessa Minnillo confronted Liz Parada about her inner-beauty shortcomings on 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC), revealing that "the winner of this competition is gonna be the complete package: a perfect combination of both inner and outer beauty," explained Minnillo.

Before eliminating Liz from the contest, they showed her footage of the six hidden-camera challenges since the season began, five of which she'd failed. After watching herself steal and give away magic-trick secrets, among other things, she stormed off stage.

"Oh no, she did not just walk out!" said Kressley. Um, yeah, looks that way.

A Banana, a Half-Naked Dude, and Some Creepiness on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jun 22nd 2010 2:05AM
A Banana, a Half-Naked Dude, and Some Creepiness on 'True Beauty'Model David goes a little too far during the latest photo shoot on 'True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC). The contestants' job is to create an ad campaign using random food items. So David chooses to pose with some fruit, but then really seems to fixate on a banana.

Why? ...Because a banana looks like a penis, that's why. At least, that's David's high level of thinking.

David prances into the shoot wearing nothing but some terrifyingly revealing underwear. Then, he specifically requests a banana, while gesturing with his hand down near his, uh, private parts. "I want to be holding the banana like it's my 'junk,'' he says.

The rest of the shoot is pretty much taken up by the judges and the photographers laughing in embarrassed horror. Meanwhile, David continually positions the banana near his -- yes -- private parts. Okay, dude. We got it. A banana kind of looks like a penis. Not subtle. You can stop now.

Kicked Off for Cheating on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

Kicked Off for Cheating on 'True Beauty''True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC) is a reality show that judges people based on their "inner beauty." Strangely, the series only seems to pick really hot men and women while looking for "inner beauty," but, well, whatever.

The other thing about the show is that the players are not told about the true nature of the contest. All the contestants think they are being analyzed as models. They believe they are scored based solely on their outer appearance. But the audience and the judges know better.

On the latest episode, we have a bit of a scandal. A contestant named Regina has violated the rules by using her cell phone to contact outsiders -- and by doing this, she manages to learn what the show is really about.

[Spoiler alert.]

How I Met Your Mother: No Tomorrow

How I Met Your Mother: No Tomorrow
How I Met Your Mother has been making a lot of news lately, with its timeslot change, its constant bubble status, the hiring of Alicia Silverstone, the subsequent hiring of a certain young woman named Britney, and the resulting departure of Silverstone and arrival of Sarah Chalke.

But what we haven't seen were actual episodes, thanks to the writers' strike. Thankfully, the strike is over and Bays and Thomas managed to be one of the first to get new episodes on the air, just in time for St. Patrick's Day. And, while HIMYM's returned with only a slightly-above-average episode, we inched ever so closer to finding out the solution to the show's main mystery. That's the least the guys could do after three months off.
