Not only did Nick Lachey host the Super Skins bash at the Super Bowl, he popped up all over the Tampa party scene with brother Drew Lachey...and without his longtime girlfriend.
Vanessa Minnillo, who's also a big football fan, had been expected to join him at events, so what happened?
Nothing scandalous. "She had to work [at the] last minute," says Nick's rep of her absence, adding that the two are still a happy couple.
After checking into the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel, they headed to 1Oak's Super Bowl preparty Saturday night, where they were spotted downing tequila shots with Brittany Snow.
