Jim Brickman Summer Musicfest


Nick & Vanessa:: Closet Master bakers


Vanessa Minillo and boyfriend Nick Lachey enjoyed the afternoon at a friend’s party in West Hollywood on Saturday (August 21).

Making the most of their weekend, the proud Miss Minnilo showed off a cake of her very own creation — no store bought pastries from her!

Meanwhile, Vanessa says she burns off the extra calories from her scrumptious baked goods with lots and lots of exercise.

The True Beauty host recently revealed her workout regime to Self magazine. She advises that women choose any heart-pumping activity they enjoy, such as jumping rope. Then they should listen to music that pumps them up.

Vanessa speaks from experience — she actually used to be a jump rope phenom when she was a child.

She explains: “When I was living in Turkey as a kid, I was on a traveling team and performed all over the country.”

Hitting the High Notes with The Sing-Off's Nick

Hitting the High Notes with  The Sing-Off 's Nick Lachey

Now that both Simon Cowell and Kara DioGuardi are off the American Idol judges’ panel for next season, we’ve been hearing countless rumors about potential replacements. You know who I think deserves a shot? Nick Lachey. The former boy-band heartthrob may best be known for 98 Degrees—not to mention a memorable three-year run on Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica with now ex-wife Jessica Simpson. But Lachey showed charm and style last year as host of NBC’s The Sing-Off, a reality singing competition that highlighted a Capella groups across the country. With the show returning later this year, I spoke to Lachey about what to expect from Season 2, a potential 98 Degrees tribute, and whether or not he’d make the leap to that other singing show. This will be your second season doing The Sing-Off. What first brought you to the show, and what made you decide to stick with it?

Nick Lachey: I’m a huge fan of a Capella music. It’s been something I’ve done throughout my career, all the way back to high school. I was in a barbershop quartet and sang in an amusement park called Kings Island, and in 98 Degrees, we obviously did a lot of a Capella. So it’s always been a style of music that I’ve really appreciated and loved. I thought it was great that the show was going to celebrate that, and I wanted to be a part of it. So I’m very, very excited about Season 2, and thrilled that America as a whole has really taken to what a Capella's all about.

What did you learn from Season 1?

I guess I learned that there are some really, really, really talented groups out there. We weren’t sure what the talent level would be of these groups. Obviously, a Capella music in my opinion is probably the hardest genre to pull of well, ‘cause there’s nowhere to hide. There’s no instruments, there’s no big production to hide behind. It’s really just you and your voice and your talent. You know, I was just blown away and shocked by how good these groups were, from the very first episode, the very first performance. It really just kind of blew me away.

What can we expect from Season 2?

I think the format’s gonna remain largely the same. I mean, obviously the groups are going to be brand new and different, and that’ll be a change for us all. There’s no way to know how any of it’s going to play out until they get on stage and start singing, which is kind of the beauty of a show like this. As opposed to four two-hour episodes, we’re going to have actually five two-hour episodes this season, so we’ll have a little more content, and that may end up resulting in a few more participating groups. But I think the big difference is really the style, the background, the performances of the groups. That’s just the big unknown.

And have you locked down the judges? Will they be the same?

They are, yeah. It’s going to be Shawn Stockman [of Boyz II Men], Nicole Scherzinger, and Ben Folds again, who I thought did a great job. Really, I think they are all so accomplished in their own right, and they’ve had such successful careers and bring all of that inside knowledge and wisdom to the table. I think it was a really invaluable thing for those groups to be able to get some constructive criticism from them and apply that to their performances. I thought the judges did a great job last year, so they’ll all be back.

So after you’re done hosting The Sing-Off, will you by trying out for a spot on the American Idol judges’ table?

[laughs] You know, I have not had any conversations about that at all, as of yet. But you know, obviously that show’s been hugely successful, and I have to say that whoever ends up being the new judge, the bar’s been set so high. The success of the show has been so consistently great, they’re all tough shoes to fill. So it’ll be interesting to see how that all plays out.

I’ve got to say, though, you guys do a great job of distinguishing yourself from other music competition shows. The Sing-Off definitely brings something different to the table.

Yeah, thank you. I think it’s a completely different style. We’re dealing with groups and we’re dealing with a Capella, so in my mind—I’m a little biased—if you can pull off a Capella music convincingly and pull it off well, you can do anything. That’s the hardest thing in the world to do, in my opinion.

I wanted to close by asking—any chance we’ll be hearing a 98 Degrees a Capella cover this season?

[laughs] That’s a good question. I’d love to see a 98 Degrees song covered a Capella. You know, that was something we always took a lot of pride in as a group, was doing a Capella well. So it would certainly be a flattering tribute if someone were to do that, and we’ll have to see what happens. You never know; you might see a 98 Degrees reunion on the show, for all we know.

Nick Lachey well aware of Fresno State football program


I just finished an interview with Nick Lachey for his NBC series "The Sing-Off." I'll write more about that show that pits a cappella singers against each other when we get closer to the start of the second season.

Before we got started talking about his show, Lachey told me about how he's bought a home in Cincinnati. He's been a big fan of the Cincinnati Bengals, Reds and Bearcats for years.

"You guys played the Bearcats last year and gave them a tough game," Lachey says.

Fresno State played the Cincinnati school last year in Ohio and lost 28-20. The two teams get together again this year for the Fresno State season opener but this year's showdown will be here.

Lachey would like to be at the game but he's got a scheduling conflict. You still should keep an eye open for him when you go to the Sept. 4 game just in case the singer/actor's plans change.

Nick gushes girlfriend is most special person Ive ever known

Jessica Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey has gushed about how in love he is with girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo.

In an interview with OK! Magazine, he called her the “most special person I’ve ever known” and said: “She’s feminine and beautiful and sexy and she’s also probably the most powerful person I’ve ever had the opportunity to know… She and I are very much alike, two fiery people.”

The singer and TV presenter has been with Minnillo, who formerly hosted MTV’s Total Request Live, for four years now.

But Lachey admitted he hasn’t yet popped the question and said: “I’m sure at some point I will get engaged, but not even I know when that moment will be.”

He also didn’t rule out appearing in a reality show based on his relationship with Minnillo, as he did with ex-wife Jessica Simpson in the reality series Newlyweds.

He said: 'There’s nothing in the works right now. I think it would pose a unique set of challenges. I guess the positive is that I’m actually familiar with those challenges. The negative would be I’m also familiar with those challenges.

“It’s hard to say never to anything. You never know.”
