It's all fun in the sun for Vanessa Minnillo. The erstwhile True Beauty judge enjoyed a leisurely bike ride around Maui with her hubby, Nick Lachey, on Thursday and showed off one buff bikini bod to admiring paparazzi. The newlyweds, who tied the knot in July, were on holiday in Hawaii this week to mark the occasion of their birthdays, which happen to fall on the same day—Nov. 9. While Minnillo kept her hat on, her hunky other half opted to accompany her shirtless (he wasn't in 98 Degrees for nothin', ladies). But with Lachey's ex-wife, Jessica Simpson, recently announcing she's expecting her first child and The Sing-Off host revealing to E! News over the summer that he »

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo wrote their own wedding vows because it was "more personal". The former 98 Degrees singer and the TV host-and-model, who tied the knot in front of just 35 friends and family in an intimate Caribbean ceremony on Necker Island earlier this month, decided to pen their own pre-nuptial promises to each other to ensure the words were "more meaningful" to them than the traditional vows. He explained: "We decided to write our own wedding vows for the ceremony because it makes it more personal and more meaningful when the words you're saying to each other come from your heart." The 30-year-old 'True Beauty' host revealed her personalized vows were important to her because she knows no other bride will ever repeat those words.

"From executive producers Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher …": truly a mark of quality and integrity. Ten sexy people think they're in competition to be named America's most beautiful person, but little do they know, they're also being judged on their inner beauty while being secretly filmed. "I notice you have really beautiful teeth," says one contestant to another as they meet for the first time. Those who get low "beauty scores" fall apart and howl, "I am not ugly!" When a contestant is kicked out, their portrait is removed and put in a wheelie bin. Both hateful and superb. Julia Raeside
This week, the teams are asked to produce a "freemium" magazine, a high-end publication given away to »

Vanessa Minnillo "can't wait" to have children with Nick Lachey. The 30-year-old TV star, who got engaged to the singer-turned-presenter in November after four years of dating, would love to have a large family with her 37-year-old spouse but knows she might change her mind at some stage.
She said, "I turned 30 and I got engaged and I started really thinking about the next chapter. One of those is family. Ideally, I would love to have three or four, but ask me after the first one. Ultimately, I just want them to be healthy."
Vanessa and Nick have still not set a date for their wedding because they are so busy with their respective work commitments, but the "True Beauty" host says they are now considering a winter wedding.
Explaining their delay in setting a date, she told People, "It's just because of our work schedules. For us, work is important. »
Vanessa Minnillo has indicated that she and fiancé Nick Lachey have taken to the idea of getting married in the winter. In November 2010, the pair became engaged after Lachey proposed to the True Beauty host on a California beach. Lachey later referred to the proposal as "a perfect moment".

We hardly believe that supermodel Tyra Banks needs that much schooling in the ways of business. At 37, she has bankrolled her supermodel career into a brand and her net worth is a reported $90 million.
Yet, the Boston Herald reports that Tyra has been spotted in the hallowed halls of the Harvard Business School and she's a student. She's taking an executive education class specifically designed for entrepreneurs.
And she has spirit, yes she does. She tweeted pictures of herself looking college-chic wearing a Harvard Business School sweatshirt to bed.
Tyra is definitely qualified to enroll in a class designed for entrepreneurs. Her entertainment company, Bankable Productions, is behind The CW's "America's Next Top Model," ABC's "True Beauty," and her daytime talk show.
And, you know what? We're sure there's always room for more money in the Tyra Banks. »
