Once a reality star, always a reality star. Nick Lachey was first a cute guy in a pop singing band. But what really made him famous was the marriage with blonde beauty Jessica Simpson which had its doors open for the public. Now, after breaking up with Simpson because of too much broadcasting their private life, he is getting married with fiancée Vanessa Minnillo on TV again: their wedding will air on TLC, Access Hollywood reports.
In 2002, Nick Lachey was marrying Jessica Simpson on MTV in a special called “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.” And now, almost 9 years later, the same Nick marries Vanessa Minillo on TLC. The network representatives announced on Tuesday that the couple’s nuptials will air under the title “Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding”.
The network hasn’t yet set an airing date, but it’s only a few weeks away from the couple’s ceremony. However, E! online suggests that the couple could be tying the knot even sooner: this weekend.
Nick and Vanessa stated that the special is their way of sending the fan their appreciation: “We’re lucky to have such passionate and loving fans”, they first said “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 two added.
The special will not only include the wedding, but also some of the event preparation. Fans will have the chance to join Vanessa in her search of the perfect bride dress and will also be a part of the exciting wedding shower.
Amy Winter, general manager of TLC says that “Nick and Vanessa are today’s ‘it’ couple and the excitement for their wedding keeps building” and is sure that the fans will love sharing the special moments with the two lovebirds.
Nick Lachey, 37, and Vanessa Minnillo, 30, have been dating for about four years before announcing their engagement. Nick proposed to her in November 2010 making, according to his statement “the greatest romantic effort ever”.
