Are Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo back on?

Nick Lachey has been busy since breaking up with Vanessa Minnillo back in June. Most of the stories had Vanessa pushing for some bigger commitment, considering she couldn’t shut up about weddings, while Nick just seemed happy with the way things were. Just a few weeks after Nick and Vanessa split, Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo broke up, and the tabloids spent a few months trying to enable “Nick and Jessica are getting back together” stories. They kind of fell flat though – Nick didn’t seem interested, and he was spotted out with random chicas all over the place. Meanwhile, Vanessa kept quiet except for the odd report of a Topher Grace makeout session.

After their summer apart, Radar is reporting that Nick and Vanessa might be back together. They were spotted hanging out and making out over the weekend, and spectators claim they were looking very couple-y.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are giving love a second chance (at least for a night), has exclusively learned.

The pair broke off their three-year relationship in June, but you would have never known it with the way they were together at the hip Dime bar in Los Angeles. Hot ‘n heavy only begins to describe it!

A spywitness at the tiny hotspot on Fairfax Avenue told “They were making-out in one of the booths and seemed totally into one another. They were having a great time and definitely appear to be back ‘ on.’ They didn’t care who saw them.”

Another source told that Nick and Vanessa came in with friends around 11:30 p.m. and stayed approximately two hours. They were drinking and about 20 minutes after arriving started making out. At one point she sat on his lap as they kissed.

In between PDA’s with Nick, Vanessa took to dancing with a couple of girlfriends while beaming Nick watched.

Meh. I know a lot of people really like Nick – and so do I – but I kind of think he could do better than Vanessa. I also think he might be kind of a jerk to Vanessa, because he so obviously does not want to get remarried. Which is fine (once burned, twice shy, et cetera) – it’s just that Vanessa really, really seems to want that, and I kind of feel like Nick is leading her on. Maybe they’re not really getting back together though – perhaps it was just a fun night between two exes who remained friendly. I could buy that.

    I hope they arent back together.. I agree he could do SO much better then her. She seemed like a gold digger riding on nicks coat tails after Newlyweds and such…. meh

    This coupling is strange. At one point he had a promising music career and she was at least up and coming. But many a rumor had it that she got too big for her britches & that’s why she’s been unemployed for so long. He just fizzled. Riding his coattails won’t get her anywhere. If each one thinks the other is such a prize – I say they deserve each other.

    Yeah, but he could do worse also. You know,,,if you switched letters, dudes name could have been Gopher Trace.

  4. Guest says:

    Don’t they still live together?

  5. giggly says:

    Vanessa moved out of Nick’s $5 million home into some apartment. That must sting. I’m trying to figure out how do Nick and Bradley Cooper know each other. There were pictures of them at some house this past weekend. It looked weird. Did anyone else see those pictures?

    I like them together. I like. The way I don’t see the much in the media. I see him as the good uncle babysitting his brother kids.
    I don’t know them but somehow I don’t think they want a big career because they sure are not fighting to get one. I don’t think Nick wants to be in media’s and a big career would do that.
    I think he is burnt out from being hooked to Jessica Simpson. That’s enough to slap the media whoring out of any body.

    Look at the body language in the photo. She is all wrapped around him, and he seems to be arching back away from her while holding onto her arms, as if to say, “Whoa, girl, back off a bit.” Doesn’t look too snuggly and cuddly to me.

    in that pic, vanessa’s whole face looks forced into a smile. nick looks uncomfortable. granted, this pic was taken in april, two months before they split and she had to move out of his place.

  10. Bonnie says:

    They are beautiful together. I hope they are back together and stay that way.

  11. Sani says:

    Good for them and I hope they make it work.
    Nick does seem like a down home kind of guy to me.

  12. Val says:

    Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo make a nice couple. Jessica Simpson messed up with Nick….so moving on…Hopefully things will work for Nick and Vanessa. Best wishes to them.

  13. Verano says:

    If they are back together, Vanessa should ask Nick what has changed in terms of long term committment, otherwise she is just wasting her time and Nick is getting free booty.

  14. Tyra says:

    I hope it’s not true. Vanessa is a gold digger and she needs a job not a man right now. I don’t find her pretty at all and I think even though Nick is aging fast and his career is on hold he can still do wayyy better than her.
