vanessa minnillo: one smart gal!

vanessa minnillo: one smart gal!
November 8, 2006 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

ah see – here’s an example of taking things slow…yes it’s ok to go ahead and date nick lachey (i would be tapping his hotness too) but when it comes to marrying him vanessa minnillo thinks the two need some more time (getting to know you) before heading down the aisle…i never thought i would say this but ms. minnillo is playing the role of ‘smart cookie’ in this relationship – nick should calm himself down & relax and not worry about getting hitched! popbytes over & out for now – xxoo!

That future looks hazier to Minnillo, 26, though, since the MTV VJ swatted down Nick’s unofficial proposal. “She thinks they need more time to get to know each other,” the friend says, “and she wants to make sure Nick has truly resolved his feelings about Jessica.” Publicists for both deny the story, but, says the rep for Minnillo: “They’re seeing each other, and it’s wonderful.” (STAR)
