Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo: Why We Wrote Our Own Wedding Vows


When Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo prepared to write their wedding vows for their July 15 ceremony on the cliffs of the British Virgin Islands' Necker Island, they did what any tech-savvy, modern couple might do: They Googled a how-to guide!

"Vanessa and I have decided to write our own vows mainly because it makes it more personal, more meaningful when the words you're saying to one another come from your heart," Lachey, 37, said of his plans with girlfriend of five years Minnillo, 30

Sharing vow writing tips she gleaned from Google while Lachey took copious notes, Minnillo was thrilled to be able to add a personal touch to her intimate ceremony.

Minnillo isn't necessarily concerned with where they end up (St. Barts), but instead is happy they'll be vacationing as husband and wife

All About Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo’s Wedding Rings!


Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo Wedding Rings
Their intimate wedding on Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island was every bit as exotic asNick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo were going for, but when it came to their wedding bands, the couple of five years wanted to stick to tradition. So they returned to New York jeweler David Bader, of Bader and Garrin, who designed Minnillo’s Asscher-cut engagement ring. “Vanessa was definitely looking for a ring to match her engagement ring,” Bader tells PEOPLE exclusively of the the Wipeout host’s platinum eternity band of Asscher-cut diamonds. As for Lachey, “I wanted something huskier and thicker,” the Sing-Off host says of his platinum band, which includes 24 square diamonds to complement his wife’s ring, plus a heartfelt message inscribed inside. “They both wanted a substantial looking ring with diamonds, but Nick wanted his to be masculine at the same time,” explains Bader. The final verdict? The couple couldn’t have been happier with their custom bands, and Bader says “they are two extremely easy people to work with. It was such a pleasure.” For more exclusive details on the couple’s island wedding, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. –Jennifer Garcia

Showgirls From Caesars Entertainment Jubilee! March Against Resort Fees


Canton native Timmons a Vegas Chippendales star


By Dan KaneJeff Timmons

As a member of the photogenic pop vocal foursome 98 Degrees, Canton native Jeff Timmons was never hurting for female attention.

The group, which also featured Nick Lachey, scored a string of hit singles from 1998 through 2000 — “The Hardest Thing,” “Because of You,” “Thank God I Found You,” “I Do (Cherish You),” “Give Me Just One Night” — and sold more than 15 million albums worldwide.

A decade later, the appreciative cheers and screams have returned for Timmons, who is starring in the Chippendales show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, through Labor Day.

Timmons, 38, who attended Perry High School and graduated from Washington High School, is not strutting in a G-string and bowtie in the Chippendales extravaganza. Instead, he is the show’s emcee and “special musical guest star,” warming up the crowd, introducing the male dancers, and singing a 98 Degrees medley and other songs.

“The PR guy for Chippendales used to manage me, and he was after me to be in the show for awhile,” Timmons says. “I wasn’t going to be part of any corny strip show with dollar bills and G-strings. Then I went to see it, and saw 300 girls going crazy in there, and it changed my mind.

“It’s a Vegas show, edgy and sexy and irreverent, and it’s a multi-million dollar production. We get bachelorette parties, birthday parties, divorce parties. It’s an outlet for girls, a fantasy kind of thing. We’re sold out all the time.”

Asked if he stays clothed on-stage, Timmons chuckles and says, “I rip my shirt off at one point in the show. It’s a gimmicky thing, but in 98 Degrees we had our shirts off in all those photos. Incidentally, I look nothing like those guys in the show. I don’t compete with them. But I did get myself in shape because I have to stand next to them.”

A few weeks ago, Timmons reunited with his 98 Degrees bandmates at Nick Lachey’s bachelor party in Vegas. “We talked about getting back together, but I don’t see it happening,” he says. When his Chippendales run ends, “I’m going to stay in Vegas, do a new show, create a new show. I love it out here. I’m having an absolute blast.”

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo's Wedding: Dress Details Revealed

The couple married last week in a surprise ceremony in the Caribbean.

Nearly a week after Vanessa Minnilloand Nick Lachey tied the knot, details of their big day are leaking, including

what the bride wore.

Minnillo, who wed Lachey on Friday on Necker Island, wore a two-pieceMonique Lhuillier gown that featured a lace corset embellished with rose and crystal detail, People reported. The skirt was made of silk faille.

Her ensemble also featured a tailored bow belt and floor-length veil made of tulle, along with Swarovski-encrustedChristian Louboutin slingbacks (she switched into a jeweled pair of Havaianas flip-flops later in the evening). She carried a Judith Leiber clutch.

Minnillo also wore a pair of diamond stud earrings given to her by Lachey early on in their relationship and had two friends do her "au naturel" hair and makeup.

The new host of ABC's Wipeout told People that it was initially a struggle finding the right dress.

“I probably had half a dozen fittings, and I was just so lost,” she said. “I finally decided to ask Nick and said, ‘What do you want to see me in when you marry me and I become Mrs. Lachey?‘ I thought I would get some generic guys’ answer but he sat up in bed and told me he loved me with my hair down … and wanted me in something traditional but with a modern flair.”

The nuptials were a surprise for the 35 friends and family members in attendance. Minnillo told People that guests were only given airline tickets and instructions on what to pack, "Our wedding invitations were in the form of a plane ticket. We told them they were going away and the attire was 'island chic.' It was all very vague."

Lachey and Minnillo met during the making of his 2006 "What's Left of Me" music video. They became engaged this past November and are planning to have children together. Minnillo told People, "For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that's to start a family together."

As previously reported by THR, their wedding will be televised on a TLC special. “We’re lucky to have such passionate and loving fans, and we thought partnering with TLC on this special would be the best way to share the exciting journey we’re on with all the people that support us and our relationship,” the couple said in a joint statement.

This is not the former boy band member’s foray into nuptial-themed reality programming. Lachey’s marriage to Jessica Simpson was chronicled in the 2003 MTV docusoapNewlyweds.



Marie Osmond, Penn & Teller and More Demonstrate Support for Showgirls Stance

Caesars Entertainment Announces $37 Million Cost Savings to Hotel Guests

LAS VEGAS, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Nearly 50 showgirls from Donn Arden’s Jubilee! at Bally’s Las Vegas shut down traffic on the famed Las Vegas Strip to rally against resorts that charge hidden resort fees to hotel guests. Las Vegas celebrity headliners Marie Osmond, Penn & Teller, Chippendales special musical guest star and former 98 Degrees star Jeff Timmons, Mac King, and Vinnie Favorito, as well as more than 100 Caesars Entertainment employees and company executives attended the rally in support of Caesars Entertainment’s city-wide “No Resort Fee” policy, which eliminates mandatory fees associated with hotel amenities at all of its Las Vegas properties.

Osmond launched the “No Resort Fees” savings clock on Bally’s Las Vegas digital marquee with a public countdown exposing shocking figures – Las Vegas travelers are saving up to $1.16 per second, $100,000 per day and $3 million per month– a savings of $37 million to-date by staying at Caesars Entertainment resorts. The clock, which displays guest savings as of July 5, 2010, after the company’s acquisition of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, will reveal up-to-the-second figures achieved as a result of Caesars Entertainment’s “No Resort Fees” policy.

A vast majority of remaining Strip properties continue to charge travelers up to $20 per day in resort fees, which in some cases exceeds 40-percent of the advertised room rate. In 2010, Las Vegas guests spent an estimated $17 million per month on resort fees at hotel properties outside the Caesars Entertainment portfolio. Resort fees—which cover various hotel amenities ranging from pool entry, fitness center access, internet service, bottled water, daily local newspaper access and valet parking—are often not made apparent to the hotel guest at the time of booking.

“It’s extremely important for visitors to the city to be aware of the high prices they could be paying in mandatory resort fees,” said Osmond, who headlines with her brother Donny at the Flamingo Las Vegas. “I am proud to be part of this key initiative and even more proud to be headlining at a ‘No Resort Fees’ property.”

Also in attendance were Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace and Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino; David Hoenemeyer, president of Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino; and Rick Mazer president of Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Imperial Palace and Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon.

“Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts believe our hotel guests should choose how they want to spend their money,” said Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner. “We are committed to transparency in guest service transactions and believe this commitment will continue to build guest loyalty within our resorts.”

Travelers can show their support for Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas “No Resort Fees” policy and win a trip to Las Vegas by participating in the “Take A Stand Against Resort Fees” contest. The online contest encourages participants to view a consumer-generated video and then produce and submit creative video content in protest of hidden resort fees for a chance to win one of three Las Vegas getaways – no resort fees included. View the video or visit Caesars Entertainment’s “No Resort Fees” Facebook for rules and more information. Contest ends August 17, 2011.

Temperature's Rising: Jeff Timmons Heats Up Chippendales Another 98 Degrees


Submitted by David Toussaint

When I was a kid I had my own Chippendales fantasy. The legendary ladies-only strippers would shimmy down to their G-Strings, shake their, um, assets, and show off their treasured chests and private booty with such glee I’d feel like Chrissy Columbus. Just when I thought I’d be exposed as a degenerate, I’d realize the men were dancing for me, telling me it’s acceptable for a male to go gaga for go-go boys
I love it when fantasies come true. In another example of modern times, civil rights, and very smart, um, packaging, the Chippendales dancers are now in Vegas, at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, gay men are encouraged to attend, and, like the icing on that wishful cake, former 98 Degrees hunk Jeff Timmons fronts the show.

Timmons doesn’t strip down to his G-String like the other men (“I had a hard time undressing in front of my wife”), and he’s upfront about that decision. “After you see those guys you’ll know why I don’t do it,” he says, sounding like a kid who’s just been drafted into the big leagues. “They’re huge, over six feet; I don’t even hang with those guys.”

What Timmons does, besides take his shirt off and expose a mucho ripped torso, is sing a medley of 98 Degrees tunes along with his own material. He’s the frontman for the act, which has its own theater and lasts 75 minutes. Yep, the boy from the band is now the man in middle. Chippendales has gone gay-friendly, and, judging by Timmons’ almost unstoppable enthusiasm, he’s thrilled to be part of America’s new frontier.

“It’s the male version of the Pussy Cat Dolls or Playboy,” says Timmons. “Girls love ’em, guys love ’em. Every guy I know, gay or straight, says ‘I’m not gonna see that shit,’ until they go. It’s not in your face; it’s flirty, not dirty.” Gay men come alone or in groups, and, if there’s a birthday or, say, a wedding, Timmons will put the spotlight on the dudes and offer congratulations.

While homo-acceptance might seem new to Chippendales, it’s always been a part of Timmons’ background. 98 Degrees, as most people know, was made up of four extremely pretty men who could also sing. Girls weren’t the only ones dreaming about Nick, Drew, Justin, and Jeff, and the band members couldn’t have been more pleased.

“We were all raised un-prejudiced,” Timmons says of the Ohio-background band (right). “We were excited about any fans, straight, gay, black white, whatever.” Timmons says the label never shied away from the gay appeal and promoted them overseas that way. “In Germany, they thought they could break us in by having us do things for our gay fan base.”

What Motown Records did initially shy away from, ironically, were the guys’ faces. “They were trying to hide the fact that we were white,” says Timmons. “They wanted us to be really urban, and the president of Motown wanted to move us to Harlem; he thought it would rub off on our music. We were four white guys from the Midwest.”Timmons still laughs at the experience, which he says he loved even when it was frustrating. “They moved us to Brooklyn instead. They didn’t change the music, but they changed the marketing.”

When I told Jeff that I thought the last thing you’d do with attractive faces is to hide them, he spoke in hyper-speed, again. “That would be the logical idea, but record companies don’t think that way.”

98 Degrees differed from most boy bands in that they weren’t formed by a manager; Timmons founded the group and recruited the members. Their last performance together was on September 10, 2001, at the Michael Jackson Madison Square Garden concert. They never even broke up; like the world at the time, they just rethought their priorities and went their separate ways.

“I had a kid and another one on the way,” says Timmons. “Nick and Jessica had their show, we just did other stuff.” He adds that a reunion isn’t out of the question. “They were all in Vegas and we talked about performing together, but it’s still on the backburner.”

Timmons is scheduled to stay with Chippendales until September 4, and he’s not twiddling his thumbs waiting for the end. “They get in everywhere,” he says of his new crew. “They’re all celebrities here; there’s a mystique.” In that sense, it does sound like Playboy for guys, right down to the physical demands. Should a guy let calories get the best of him, says Timmons, “they’ll put him on probation and take him off promotions,” adding that age isn’t so important, but discipline is. “There’s a guy who’s over forty. As long as you look good, get to work, stay in shape, and know the routines, you’ll be fine.”

He wasn’t describing his former gig, but the work ethic is pretty much the same. “It’s not a hard job,” he says, as if stating the obvious. “It’s fun. You perform for three hundred screaming girls and some guys. As long as I’m having fun with it I’ll do it till I’m fifty.”

I told Timmons that the new Chippendales also sounded a bit like the male version of the Ziegfeld Follies, and it was the only time during the interview that he grew quiet. When I realized he didn’t know the reference, I almost dove into Barbra 101, then thought better of myself. There’s time enough for all of us to discover how the other half lives. heart

Nick Lachey's Las Vegas Bachelor Party Weekend


Nick Lachey, Drew LacheyDrew Lachey sure knows how to throw one heck of a bachelor party.

Forget those typical one-night affairs, Nick Lachey's big brother (and best man) celebrated the former boy bander's last days of bachelorhood with a weekend of festivities in Las Vegas, before he marries Vanessa Minnillo later this year.

So, what went down?

The party started Friday at the Venetian Hotel's TAO nightclub, with nearly 30 of Nick's friends in tow, including pro baller Matt Leinart and former 98 Degrees bandmates Drew and Justin Jeffre.

"When you get to this point in life, you know, I'm 37, and my college roommates from two different universities, all my high school friends, [have] all [moved] on in life," Lachey told Us Weekly. "A lot of these guys have kids and don't see each other as much as we used to, so this is an opportunity—or an excuse, really—to get together and tie one on for old time's sake."

And since it's really not a celebration without cake to top off the evening, Nick and company snacked on a custom ball-and-chain cake, inscribed with "Property of Vanessa."

Next, it was off to Tao Beach Saturday, where the group reconvened in a cabana and Nick was treated to a performance by a "mini Vanessa" (a surprise from his absent fiancée). After the tiny performer dropped off a bottle of Veuve Clicquot at the table, Nick cracked it open, sprayed the crowd, and kept the party going.

So, when will Nick and Vanessa make it official?

The longtime couple still has yet to announce the date, but whenever they do tie the knot, however, the duo will be televising their big day via a TLC special.

In other words, check local listings to see if you're invited.
