    Nick 'n' 'Ness: Play On, Fight On!

    We've been speculating for a bit whether Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are as on as they say they are, but all seemed to be OK this weekend when we chatted with 'Ness at the Pink Party. I'm sure you'll sleep much better tonight knowing this information.

    Now, when we first ran into V at the charity soiree, she was a bit hesitant to chat. "You guys don't like me very much," she cautiously stated. Who, moi? That's not the case doll, I'm just a little indifferent toward ya. And since you were quite sweet and chatted with us, regardless, you're so moving up in the A.T. book, darling.

    Oh, and earlier in the day, Nick-babe was spotted sporting his Trojan colors as he tailgated and got pumped for USC to take on Ohio State in their first home game. He was looking yummy in a manly man kind of way as he cheered inside for his fave team with his boys. This has nothing to do with anything, really, other than a nice visual of the totally doable shorty, we admit.

    But when we told V that Nick's beloved Trojans killed it on the football field, she looked pleased and piped, laughing, "So I'll get some good voicemails; he'll be happy." So you and Nick are all good then? "Absolutely...he just had his event in New York for Feeding America...I'm so proud of him. He's taking time now to play today and support his Trojans, and now I have my night of this."

    Ms. M, as if you cared, was accompanied by her friend Corinne, who is on the upcoming season of Survivor. This fundraiser for women's cancer research hit home for V.M. because her gal pal found a lump in one of her breasts when she went through a routine checkup. "Nobody is invisible to it...They're our moms, grandmothers, sisters, friends...that's why it's so important." You sure got that right, sister.
