Vanessa Minnillo is dating Nick Lachey, and it's probably the best career move she could have ever made. In reality, Nick's nothing special, but dating the ex-husband of Jessica Simpson is a sure-fire way to get your name in the tabloids, and raise your celebrity status, if only a small amount.
Of course, another great way to raise your celebrity status is to be super hot, and wear a sexy little bikini, and Vanessa Minnillo does that well too.
So will Vanessa Minnillo parlay her new-found "fame" into something bigger, and make the jump to Access Hollywood, or will it be that new horror movie no one sees? Honestly, it doesn't really matter. All that matters right now are these Vanessa Minnillo bikini pictures, and there are lots more after the jump.
