Nick Is Coming Back To Reality TV — He’s Filming A New Show For VH1!

SOURCE


Just when you thought you’d heard the last of the former 98 degrees front man, think again! It turns out cameras will follow Nick’s journey back into the music industry.

Have you been wondering what Nick Lachey has been doing for the past FIVE years? You’re about to find out, as the 36-year-old singer, and former hubby to Jessica Simpson, is returning to reality TV. A source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com that Nick has signed on to do a reality show set to air on VH1.

“It will follow his life and mainly focus on his music career,” says our source.”The show will show him getting back into the music industry and feature his former 98 Degrees band mates.”

You’re probably thinking this sounds very similar to his original MTV reality show Newlyweds, which followed his marriage to Jessica from 2003-2005. But our source tells us Nick’s girlfriend of four years, Vanessa Minnillo, won’t be a big part of the show.

“Vanessa will be on it some, but it’s not going to be about their relationship … at all,” the source says.

HollywoodLife.com reached out to VH1 who had “no comment.”

We’re excited to see what Nick has been up to after all of these years, and if Jessica cringing a bit too!

Vanessa Minnillo on Her 'Intimate' Moments With Nick Lachey — in the Shower!

Vanessa Minnillo on Her 'Intimate' Moments With Nick Lachey — in the Shower!

by Erin Hill
As a former Miss Teen USA and host of ABC's reality competition series True Beauty, Vanessa Minnillo knows her stuff when it comes to putting your best self forward. That's probably why she recently teamed up with AXE Shower in their effort to help guys step up their grooming habits.

The 29-year-old opened up to Parade.com about her own steamy shower moments with boyfriend Nick Lachey and why you won't be seeing them on the small screen together any time soon.

Turning dirty boys into clean men.

"I had just wrapped Season 2 of True Beauty and the whole premise of that show was that real beauty comes from within. I partnered with Axe Shower, and we decided to take it a step forward and encourage guys to not let that aspect of their game fall back and to always be on top of everything and be true to who you are as a person, but also treat yourself right and take care of yourself. Sure, the good guy gets the girl, but the good guy who's also clean, keeps the girl!"

Her best tip when it comes to guys and their grooming habits.
"I think it starts at the base. Honestly, guys try to cover up everything, whether it's with products or taking a bath in whatever scent their wearing. If you don't shower and scrub your body, you're pretty much masking the problem."

Celebrities Reveal Their Healthy Skin Secrets

Shower time with boyfriend Nick Lachey.
"We shower, honestly, at least twice a day. We shower in the morning and we shower at some point during the day or before bed. It's so funny because we've turned it into an intimate time for each other. We both have our own shower heads so we just talk while we're soaping up and doing our hair. It's not a sexual thing and it's not a romantic thing, it just becomes an intimate thing. You're in your full form, so to speak, and you're vulnerable and we just both let our guard down. I've had some of my most intimate conversations with him in the shower."

Does he sing in the shower?
"He does. I sing in the shower when he's not there and the acoustics are great -- everyone sounds amazing! When he's preparing for a show or a singing appearance, it's the best because the steam helps relax your vocal chords. It's kind of cute; it's become a routine. Sometimes I have to catch myself because I take for granted how beautiful his voice is and how it's at the palm of my hand. So I try to appreciate whenever he does his warm-ups."

Nick doesn't spend a lot of time in front of the mirror.
"He's not that guy that does crazy hair trimming and nose trimming. He's pretty straightforward when it comes to that. He has his routine and he goes out the door."

Her tried-and-true beauty tips.
"As a woman, it's important to moisturize every day, and it's important to take your make up off every night. I can tell you that there's been 4 or 5 times this week that I've thought that's the last thing I wanted to do, but it's so important. And as soon as I do it and moisturize I feel so much better and it shows. We can do things to alter our appearance, whether it's our hair or our clothes, but you only get one body and you only get one face and one set of skin, so you might as well take care of it. I think the biggest beauty secret is just to think in advance and think how it's going to affect you. Sunscreen is a huge one as well. I would encourage people to wear sunscreen every day."

10 Stars Confess to Problem Skin


Would they ever consider doing a reality show together?
"I think that a competition reality show is different than a reality show. I personally have no desire. Nick has done one before and he was very successful at it and whatever he chooses to do with his future I will support him 100%. But me personally, I don't know. I think that there's something to be said for keeping intimate moments to yourself, but he said it best, 'You never can say never.' But I personally don't want to do one."

How to have a strong relationship in Hollywood.
"You have to talk through everything. It's all about communication. We talk daily about things that upset us. It's about having a sounding board because if you hold in all your thoughts, dreams, anger and anxiety than you're only hurting yourself. I think that we've been fortunate to have that. I can be like, 'This upset me and I don't understand why somebody would say that about me,' and he gives me great perspective and I can turn around and say the same thing to him. You can't go through your day and not talk to your partner. Ultimately, the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with is going to be your best friend, so why wouldn't they know everything about your life?"

On Nick's ex-wife, Jessica Simpson, who's always in the spotlight.
"The past is the past."

Nick Lachey: Professional Baseball Champion

nick-lachey-rainiersFormer 98 Degrees member and ex-Mr. Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey hasn't let his money go completely to waste, he became a part-owner of the Tacoma Rainiers, the AAA affiliate for the Seattle Mariners. On Friday, after an 11-inning 10-6 win over the Memphis Redbirds, the Rainiers had completed a sweep of the previous year's champions and earned the first outright Pacific Coast League championship for the franchise since 1969.

After the game, as his players sprayed one another with champagne and celebrated Lachey was watching on, with a big smile on his face.

"When you invest in a team, you buy a team, this is what you dream of," Lachey said, "this moment when you’re dousing champagne in the visiting team’s locker room, when you’ve just taken their heart and soul away and you’ve won the championship on their field.

"I think I speak on behalf of the entire ownership group when I say this is amazing. This is what we've always dreamed of. I couldn't be prouder of Tacoma, the city, the team, of all the players and the administration for making this happen."

I can't believe Lachey is even able to buy a baseball ticket, let alone OWN a team. I'm saddened that he has that much money.

One thing is certain: the world is NOT fair.

Tacoma Rainiers's Photos - Pacific Coast League CHAMPIONS

Nick Lachey's Tacoma Rainiers have big year

source
by Wendell Maxey

Nick Lachey has always been a huge baseball fan, but he recently got his first postseason experience as a team owner.

Last Saturday, Lachey, former boy band singer and reality TV star, was in Memphis with the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers, a team for which he is part-owner. He stood in the locker room smiling as his players doused each other with bubbly and brew after the Rainiers claimed their first Pacific Coast League title since 1969 by sweeping the Memphis Redbirds in three games.

Nick Lachey

By Tuesday night, the love was gone. Tacoma lost 12-6 to the Columbus Clippers for the Triple-A championship.

Hours earlier, Lachey recalled how a kid from Ohio, who grew up a die-hard Cincinnati Reds, Bengals and USC Trojans fan, came to be part of a minor league baseball ownership group in Tacoma, Wash.

Now that is reality TV worthy.

"Time has really flown by," said Lachey, who became part-owner with the Schlegel Sports Group in 2007. "I remember being there to throw out the first pitch and the press conference when we bought the team.

"It's difficult for me not being a local owner, with living out of state and being busy. I don't make it around as much I'd like to. I've just tried to be a supportive voice for this team, and hopefully we've brought some good publicity to the area."

Lachey has been busy with his next album, due out in the spring of 2011. Since parting ways with Jive records, he's become a "free agent" and has started an independent pop music project.

Lachey has been busy with his next album, due out in the spring of 2011. Since parting ways with Jive records, he's become a "free agent" and has started an independent pop music project.

Though Lachey doesn't run the day-to-day operations of his baseball team, he is an emotionally invested owner who tends to, "see things from a fan's perspective."

Those within the Rainiers organization have come to know Lachey beyond his former success with the band 98 Degrees and MTV reality show "Newlyweds".

"He really is a fan and loves sports. He'll come out to take batting practice, when he's around, with the team," said Aaron Artman, president of the Rainiers. "People have seen the singing and acting side, but when we see Nick we see in him a guy who loves sports and has a smart business mind about it.

"I remember having a celebrity charity softball game that he hosted, and afterward everyone on the team staff wanted to meet Nick. So he said, 'why don't we just go bowling?' We took the whole staff and rented out a bowling alley. He's just a great member of the ownership group."

This isn't Lachey's first stab at baseball ownership.

About six years ago, Lachey was involved with a group trying to buy his hometown Cincinnati Reds.

Sadly enough for a kid who grew up watching Pete Rose manage the Reds, followed Barry Larkin and Eric Davis, and stayed true even during those dim Mario Soto teams in the early 80's, the deal never materialized.

"We didn't end up getting the team, but it did pique an interest in me to explore being more involved in sports -- on this side of things," Lachey said. "It was a learning experience for us all, and there is a lot of value in owning at any level. That's a reason we decided to get involved in minor league baseball in the right situation. Being able to do that in a good way, shows you can be successful if you ever do want to be part of a major league ownership group."

Maybe one day he will make it to "The Show". But for now, Lachey remains part of a team experiencing major league success in Tacoma.

"As an ownership group, this is what you dream of where you compete for a championship and give the community a real source of pride," Lachey said. "You don't this opportunity very often."

Nick Pacific coast champs!!!!!!

Tacoma Rainiers sweep to first outright PCL title since 1969

SOURCE

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Nick Lachey, part-owner of the Tacoma Rainiers and former boy-band heartthrob, stood by smiling and watching as the players sprayed beer and champagne throughout the visiting locker room at AutoZone Park Friday night.

The Rainiers had just completed a three-game sweep of the Memphis Redbirds with an 11-inning, 10-6 victory in front of 6,709 to capture their first outright Pacific Coast League championship since 1969. They did so by winning all three games on a field where the Redbirds, the defending PCL champs, had won a franchise record 50 games this season.

It’s one of many reasons why Lachey, wearing his gray Rainiers cap, just couldn’t stop smiling.

“When you invest in a team, you buy a team, this is what you dream of,” the former 98 Degrees singer said, “this moment when you’re dousing champagne in the visiting team’s locker room, when you’ve just taken their heart and soul away and you’ve won the championship on their field.

Drew Lachey Explains Story Behind Son’s Name

SOURCE


Armed with a list of baby boy names, Drew Lachey and his wife Lea thought they were ahead of the game when they discovered they were expecting a son.

However, the couple soon realized even the best laid plans often go awry!

“Some of the names we floated around for if [our daughter] Isabella Claire had been a boy actually became the most popular names in the country, so we said, ‘Nah, we’re not going to do those names anymore,’” the singer and Dancing With the Stars alum, 34, tells PEOPLE Moms & Babies.

“We had to go back to the drawing board.”

Fortunately, deciding on Hudson Nicholas for their now 3-month-old was a no-brainer.

“Hudson is just a strong name, a classic name, and when we hear it, it just reminds us of New York, which is our favorite city in the world,” he explains.

“Actually, Nicholas is a family name on both sides. [Besides my own brother Nick,] my wife’s brother’s name is Nicholas; her father’s name is Nicholas; my great-grandfather was Nicholas; her grandfather was Nicola … so that was a pretty easy middle name to come up with!”

Settling in as a family of four isn’t the only new adjustment for the Lacheys — they’ve relocated back to Drew’s hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

“We’re loving it and having a great time. It’s great being back close to family and, you know, when we think of a childhood, this is what we think of,” Lachey says. “We don’t think of Calabasas and the Sunset Strip and the Grove. We think of Cincinnati and a more innocent and carefree lifestyle as opposed to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.”

And while 4½-year-old Isabella occasionally longs for the West coast — “She still talks about how she misses some of her California friends” — she’s quickly fitting in with the locals.

“She loved winter — being able to play in the snow, and now chasing lightning bugs. We live near the woods so we have deer come through all the time,” the proud papa notes.

“She’s really embraced it and she’s doing well in school and she has a lot of friends. We’re fortunate to move in with some great people on our street, so we are feeling pretty blessed right now.”

Drew relocates his family to his hometown

Drew Lachey has two children, daughter Isabella is 4 and son Hudson is 3 monthsFormer boy band member, Dancing with the Stars winner and father Drew Lachey has moved his family out of Hollywood and back to his childhood hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

"It's great being back close to family and, you know, when we think of a childhood, this is what we think of," Lachey recently told People magazine. "We don't think of Calabasas and the Sunset Strip and the Grove. We think of Cincinnati and a more innocent and carefree lifestyle as opposed to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood."

He says the transition from Tinseltown to the Midwest has been relatively easy for his family, which includes wife Lea, 4-year old daughter, Isabella, and 3-month old son, Hudson.

Lachey tells the news source that Isabella loves the Ohio weather - with snow in the winter and lightning bugs in the summer.

"She's really embraced it and she's doing well in school and she has a lot of friends. We're fortunate to move in with some great people on our street, so we are feeling pretty blessed right now."

While the family calls Cincinnati home, Lachey explained to the magazine that they named their son with another one of their favorite places in mind.

"Hudson is just a strong name, a classic name, and when we hear it, it just reminds us of New York, which is our favorite city in the world."
