Let’s hope it ends better than last time!
Despite ending up in the divorce court after his last venture into reality television, Nick Lachey is again going to air his most intimate life-moment on-air when he marries Vanessa Minnillo this summer.
While they’ve kept the actual date a secret, the couple announced that their big day is going to air on TLC under the working title of Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding a few weeks after they tie the knot.
Minnillo celebrated her last days as a single lady at a boozy bachelorette party in Las Vegas last weekend at LAVO at the Palazzo, where she told the crowd, “I’m about to get married! I’m about to get a ball and chain … but not yet and tonight’s my bachelorette party!” Reports the New York Daily News.
Lachey, 37, and Minnillo, 30, have kept their relationship out of the spotlight compared to Nick’s highly-publicized 2002 marriage to first wife Jessica Simpson, which was closely documented on MTV’s Newlyweds.
“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,” Lachey and Minnillo said in a statement on Tuesday.
The TV special will feature the joint wedding shower they threw on the rooftop of a West Hollywood hotel last month, Vanessa’s hunt for the perfect dress and will culminate in the ‘I dos.’
The couple has been dating since 2006 and got engaged last fall, just weeks before Simpson announced she too would be walking down the aisle with former NFL star Eric Johnson.
