Posted by Jessica

Today is the day of baby bumps and Australia, and Vanessa Minnillo has got ‘em both. The television host is several months along in her first pregnancy and totally rocking her baby bump like a pro.
When INF Daily’s Australian photogs caught up with Vanessa and husband Nick Lachey the couple were returning to their Sydney hotel after spending the afternoon shopping. They’re in town to promote the opening of the Marquee nightclub at The Star – but obviously it’s not justbusiness. It’s Vanessa’s first trip down under, and she and Nick have hit up Coogee beach and the Sydney Zoo.

They sure clean up nice! Pregnant Vanessa Minnillo and husband Nick Lachey light up the red carpet after casual day out


Regardless of what they're wearing, Nick Lachey and his pregnant wife, Vanessa Minnillo, look absolutely fabulous. 
The celebrity couple showed off their fashion versatility yesterday in Sydney.
The 38-year-old singer and his TV presenter wife, 31, looked casual but cool as they strolled and shopped in the Australian city.

Mere hours later they were dressed to the nines to attend the launch of Marquee nightclub.

Jessica Simpson's ex-husband looked dapper in a dark pin-striped suit and black shirt. 
His lovely wife his her burgeoning baby bump with a floaty white chiffon mini-dress, which drew attention to her fabulous legs.

The woven detailing at the top of her dress also drew attention away from her stomach. 
She wore simple yet sexy smoky eye make-up and styled her hair in a half-do with a bouffant on top. 
Earlier in the day, the couple, who tied the knot last July, wore nearly identical ensembles. 
Both were clad in white shirts and blue jeans, though Vanessa's were lighter and rolled at the bottom. 
She accessorised with fashionable sandals and large silver hoops, while Nick wore a fairly standard ball cap. 
They were far more appropriately dressed later in the evening to mingle with Nick's ex-sister-in-law, Ashlee Simpson.
Both his current wife and his ex are both pregnant with their first children, which should have made for an interesting conversation at the Australian fete.

Other celebrities to attend the Marquee event included Sharni Vinson and Twilight star boyfriend Kellan Lutz, Mel B and husband Stephen Belafonte, Isabel Lucas and Paris Hilton.
It has just been reported that the 31-year-old socialite will make a cameo appearance in the film Bling Ring. 
A source close to the production revealed that Paris appeared on the Los Angeles set in a Swarovski dress and Christian Louboutin heels to film a scene with Gavin Rossdale as a shady club promoter.

"I'm very excited either way, but I always wanted a boy first," the 31-year-old posted to her Twitter account. "Just a healthy baby."

Backstreet Boys’ Howie D Offers Advice to Reuniting Boy Band 98 Degrees


After more than a ten year hiatus, boy band 98 Degrees is reportedly reuniting. Following in the footsteps of fellow ’90s boy bands like Backstreet Boys and NKOTBNick LacheyDrew LacheyJeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre are preparing for a reunion tour, which will take place in 15 cities between July and August of this year, according to Rumor Fix.
Now Howie D, who is part of the biggest boy band reunion NKOTBSB (combining Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block),  is lending his support to the “I Do (Cherish You)” boy band, exclusively tellingCelebuzz:
“I think it’s really cool that 98 degrees is getting back together. We had such a successful NKOTBSB tour this past summer, and I hope the same for them. I’ll definitely be there.”
Howie, who is hitting the road for the NKOTBSB world tour next month, has plenty of advice for Lachey and his fellow bandmates.

98 Degrees Reuniting: Which Other Boy Bands Should Follow Suit?


O-Town, 'NSYNC make our list of boy bands that should get back together.

By Jocelyn Vena (@

It's about to get 98 Degrees and hotter in the boy-band bonanza. Nick Lachey's old group is rumored to be getting back together to launch a summer tour.
Sources tell Rumorfix that the band, which has been on a decade-long hiatus, is about to announce a 15-city trek set to take place in July and August. A formal announcement should be made in the next week. One source told the site that the tour would serve as a thank-you to the band's fans.

98 Degrees in 1999
Rumors of a reunion kicked off on Wednesday, when the band's website got a face-lift that includes a spanking new logo and a Twitter feed with the guys' official pages scrolling through the homepage. A rep for the band had not responded to MTV News' request for comment by press time.
Given all the love boy bands are getting these days (see One Direction and the Wanted), there are still some that might want to capitalize on the mania sweeping the world. Here are MTV News' picks for the groups we'd love to see get back together.
O-Town O-Town was the product of the reality show "Making the Band." Once managed by imprisoned boy-band impresario Lou Pearlman, the guys managed to put their reality-show pedigree behind them and launched a short-lived, successful run that included hits like the chart-topping "Liquid Dreams."
'NSYNC This would be the gold-star reunion. 'NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys were the two boy bands of the late-'90s revival that reached mega heights of fame and success. Several albums into their career, there appeared to be no stopping Justin Timberlake and the boys. But in 2002, they went on a "temporary hiatus" and have never looked back.

Westlife Westlife plan to break up later this year after they wrap up their 2012 tour. But now seems like the right time to keep it going a little bit longer. Given America's love for boy bands that hail from the U.K., Westlife, who found fame under the guidance of Simon Cowell and serenaded ladies with tracks like "Swear It Again," might just want to stick around and ride out this latest wave of boy-band love.
Which boy band would you love to see get back together? Tell us in the comments!

98 Degrees Reuniting? Good — They're The Best Boy Band of the '90s

By Kate Ward , Staff

ALTI know. Halfway through reading this headline you started gathering every ‘NSYNC album you own to hurl my way. But go ahead, because I’ll still have my copies of 98 Degrees and Rising and Revelation perfectly in tact to get me through any period of pain. Heck, the two albums even got me through life’s most excruciating time period: Middle school. And they continue to entertain today — not a Christmas goes by that the Ward family doesn’t listen to 98 Degrees’ This Christmas. (You’re welcome, Dad!)

So I Do (Cherish) the rumor that 98 Degrees — made up of members Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons, and Justin Jeffre — isreuniting for a 15-city tour this summer. (The band members’ reps have yet to respond to’s request for comment.) Though it may be controversial to say during a time in which Justin Timberlake appears in Oscar-nominated projects, I still stand by my claim: 98 Degrees was simply the best boy band of a decade overrun with overly manufactured quintets whose horrible haircuts outshined their musical abilities. To see them back on the stage, actually harmonizing without the help of a production studio, would be a gift even greater than This Christmas’ “This Gift.” But what’s that? You’re still wondering how this little band from Ohio could be better than ‘NSYNC or The Backstreet Boys? Okay, I’ll break it down for you — here’s why 98 Degrees was My Everything:

98 Degrees was formed outside of Lou Perlman’s mind.
Unlike ‘NSYNC and Backstreet Boys (and O-Town and LFO… ), 98 Degrees came together without the help of the Ponzi scheme-heading criminal Perlman, who is now serving time for conspiracy and assault on our ears via “Liquid Dreams.” Instead, 98 Degrees had humble beginnings, growing up in Ohio before naturally coming together in L.A. And their natural kinship shows in their music — whereas ‘NSYNC brought the world overproduced (but no less catchy) hits like “Bye Bye Bye,” 98 Degrees released subtle tunes that showed off the group’s solid, unified vocals. Just listen to This Christmas’ “Ave Maria,” and you’ll be saying “Hello, hello, hello!” You also have to marvel at the fact that Ohio produced a beautiful group of beautifully singing men. What’s in the water? Should we all just move there?

98 Degrees’ songs were actually listenable.
Remember “Liquid Dreams”? Of course you do — I just referenced it. But the O-Town song represents the worst of boy band music — terribly written, terribly produced, terribly received by people with ears everywhere. 98 Degrees, on the other hand, actually produced good music. The band hit all the right notes with their singles, vocally and publically: “The Hardest Thing” might never be on a list with “American Pie” or “Yesterday,” but it succeeded in being a sweet, listenable song that attracted the attention of more than many a teen girl. 98 Degrees’ albums might have been schmaltz, but you have to respect schmaltz that works. Plus, don’t they get some industry respect for collaborating with Stevie Wonder?

98 Degrees didn’t just match outfits — they matched biceps.
One of the most infuriating boy band practices of the ‘90s was each group’s insistence on dressing identical. (So they could find each other while walking through busy streets?) Boys didn’t even have a House of Dereon to help them mix things up! But 98 Degrees matched muscles more often than they matched daywear. At least, three members did — photographers did a solid job camouflaging baritone Jeffre behind the muscle power that was Timmons and both Lacheys. Which brings us to one of my favorite games: Where’s Justin Jeffre?

He blends in perfectly wearing this shade of sedimentary.
He’s not just a background vocalist — he’s actually the background.
More layers! More layers!
This one’s going to take some time. Is that hi — oh wait, just a brick wall.
98 Degrees’ members boast the best extracurriculars.
So Justin Timberlake might have established himself as an A-list actor with the help of respected films likeThe Social Network. But has he run for mayor of Cincinnati like Jeffre? Has he become oddly charming as the host of The Singing Bee like Lachey? Has he won Dancing With the Stars like Drew? And has he headlined a Chippendale’s show like Timmons? You know what’s cooler than the millions of dollars a movie career gets you? A billion dollars… in your G-string.

Who else is with me? And who wants to go to the possible 98 Degrees reunion with me? Anyone? Dad?

Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, Jeff Timmons, Nick Lachey, 98 Degrees

Can you feel your temperature rising? Because 98 Degrees might just be reuniting after a decade apart!
Reports are flying around that Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre are set to go on a 15-city tour this summer.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the band's website was updated for the first time in 10 years on Wednesday and some hints have recently been dropped on Twitter…

"Is it just me or does [] look a little different that it did yesterday? just saying," Lachey, who's expecting his first child with wife Vanessa Lacheytweeted Wednesday.
"Look, you never can believe rumors, but I'd be open to it for sure!" Timmons wrote. The 38-year-old boy-bander turned part-time Chippendales performer also retweeted posts from excited fans about a possible reunion. (His rep told E! News they "can neither conform nor deny" reunion reports "at this time.)
Remember "The Hardest Thing," "I Do (Cherish You)," and "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)"? Let's bring 'em back, boys!

98 Degrees Reuniting: Boy Band Reunites After 10 Years For Summer Tour


98 Degrees ReunitingBoy band 98 Degrees is reuniting for a summer after 10 years, RumorFix reports.

98 Degrees -- Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre -- is supposedly set to go on a 15-city tour this summer between July and August. Rumors of the boy band reuniting began after their website was updated for the first time in nearly a decade.
In February, Timmons told a local news outlet in the Philippines that there had been discussions for a 98 Degrees reunion, but nothing had been confirmed yet.
"We've been talking of 98 Degrees getting back together for a reunion show," he said. "Nothing's out of the question but nothing's solidified. We'll see."
Timmons formed the group in Los Angeles in 1995 with brothers Nick and Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre. Despite meeting in California, all members of the band were from Ohio. Two years later, the group released its debut album, with the single, "Invisible Man."
98 Degrees would go on to release eight Top 40 singles, including "Thank God I Found You," which featured pop diva Mariah Carey, and "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)."
Since announcing an extended hiatus in 2002, the members of 98 Degrees have pursued individual projects. Drew Lachey won in the second season of "Dancing with the Stars," while brother Nick released two solo albums and is now the host of the a capella talent search "The Sing-Off." Jeffre ran for mayor of Cincinatti, Ohio, while Timmons also released a solo album and toured internationally.
98 Degrees isn't the only 90s pop group set to reunite in 2012. In March, S Club 7 announced their plans for a small UK reunion tour and two new albums. Meanwhile, the Backstreet Boys, who recently toured with New Kids on the Block, are alsoplanning to release a new album in 2012.

Nick Lachey, 98 Degrees to Reunite for Tour?

Is dad-to-be Nick Lachey getting ready to hit the road -- with his old boy bandmates from 98 Degrees?
On Wednesday, the boy band popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s updated its website for the first time in a decade -- and claims that the group is planning a fifteen-city reunion tour for this summer.

For now, however, a source tells Us Weekly any talk of a tour is just speculation. And Lachey, 38, has an exciting 2012 ahead no matter what: His wife Vanessa Lachey is pregnant with their first

"This is the one thing that more than any other I've looked forward to, and it's overwhelming," dad-to-be Lachey said March 5 on Live! With Kelly after announcing his wife's pregnancy.

Famous for hits like "Because of You" and "If She Only Knew," 98 Degrees was formed by Jeff Timmons, who assembled fellow Ohio natives Nick and brother Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre.

EXCLUSIVE: 98 Degrees Reunites After 10 Years


98 Degrees, the boy band that brought you such hits as “Because Of You,” and “If She Only Knew,” is reuniting for the first time in 10 years, RumorFix has learned exclusively.
Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre are set to go on a fifteen city tour this summer between July and August, a source close to the band tells RumorFix.
Rumors of a reunion tour began Wednesday night when the band’s website was updated for the first time in a decade — and our source says it’s because of the tour.
Ever since the Backstreet Boys and New Kids On The Block reunited, there has been fan pressure for the 98 Degrees hunks to go on a reunion tour. And, our source says the timing is right for the entire group — so they are doing this as a “Thank You” to their loyal fans. Expect a formal announcement in a week or so.
