“Newlyweds” round two?
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have just announced that their upcoming summer nuptials will be televised in a special on Lifetime. We all remember the downfall of Nick Lachey’s first marriage to Jessica Simpson after their MTV reality show “Newlyweds,” so we're asking: is this idea brilliant or bananas?
I like Nick and Vanessa a lot, but I’m having a hard time understanding why they would want to do this unless it is simply for the money – perhaps someone made them an offer they couldn’t refuse.
If they take it a step further and let cameras into their home for a reality show after the wedding, that’s a whole different story. I don’t know that cameras led to the demise of Nick’s first marriage, but they couldn’t have helped.
What do you think? Post below.
In other TV wedding news, Hugh Hefner just tweeted that his TV wedding special will air as planned, but without his bride! Originally, the special was going to document Hef and Crystal’s wedding preparations and the actual ceremony, until Crystal bailed days before!
Hef just tweeted: “The marriage special planned for Lifetime TV is now going to have a ‘runaway bride' theme and will air in July.” He also tweeted that former “Girls Next Door” Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison were a part of this new special.
I say good for Hef going ahead with this special! It might make it even more interesting. But what do you think? Brilliant or bananas?
We also have a revealing "Showbiz" newsmaker interview with La Toya Jackson. We’ll talk to her about the upcoming two-year anniversary of her brother Michael’s death, the new revelations in her book “Starting Over,” and what she thinks about her brothers going out on a Jackson 5 reunion tour.
