Vanessa Minnillo looked stunning as she ran some errands and did a bit of shopping in Los Angeles on Friday (October 22).

The former beauty queen, who recently appeared in an episode of Psych, sported a scarf, super skinny blue jeans and knee high boots while out and about.

The day before, Vanessa and boyfriend Nick Lachey had a close call when they dined at the same restaurant as Nick’s ex Jessica Simpson and her current flame Eric Johnson.

But worry not — Vanessa and Nick are stronger than ever.

“They’re very happy,” a source tells People mag. “He wishes [Jessica] the best.”

It was date night for Nick Lachey and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo in Los Angeles last night (October 21).

After enjoying a lovely dinner for two, the happy couple could be seen leaving an upscale restaurant as they descended to their next romantic destination.

Interestingly, Nicka and Vanessa were dining just two tables away from Jessica Simpson and her new boyfriend Eric Johnson at Red-O restaurant. Jessica arrived with her mom, new ex-NFL player beau and a couple of other people, while Nick dined with his now longtime love.

While the ex-lovebirds reportedly sat very near to each other, they did not speak the entire night.

Nick and Vanessa departed first, while Jessica’s mom attempted to help her daughter escape paparazzi by asking guards if her party could exit through the back door. The group eventually left through a side door.

Newlyweds stars Jessica and Nick divorced in 2006 after four years of marriage.

Vanessa Minnillo has a busy afternoon while out and about in Los Angeles on Thursday (September 9).

After buying greeting cards from Papyrus in Sherman Oaks, CA the gorgeous TV personality then stopped off at a local Ralph’s to pick up a cart full of groceries.

Wearing running shorts and a ‘Brooklyn’ t-shirt, Vanessa was al smiles as she brought her own recycling bags for her groceries.

Meanwhile, in a new interview with Blackbook Magazine, Vanessa, the new spokesperson for men’s grooming spray AXE, opens up about self maintenance. Some highlights:

Vanessa on the most important factor in male grooming: “The study shows that 3 out of 4 girls will only date a guy who showers daily. Just take a shower once a day, and you’re increasing your chances. Guys that did use Axe shower gel compared to guys who use bar soap had seven times more likeliness to hook up with a girl. Just simple little things that can help you step up your game. For me, the overall factor is just being a clean guy — showering daily, grooming, taking care of your hair, taking care of every aspect of your body. I feel like I hit the jackpot with Nick.”

Vanessa on whether finds the scruffy beard Hipster look attractive: “I’m personally not into the hipster thing, but I think you can have the hipster thing and still be clean. You can go for the grungy look and still have product in your hair. Just because you want to look grungy doesn’t mean you have to smell like a trashcan, either. I think it’s more a look than it is a way of life.”

Vanessa on whether she has ever thought about doing a reality TV show: “Honestly, we’ve been approached since we started dating. He just did an interview recently and it’s very true, never say never. He said it poses a whole bunch of challenges he knows about and that it would be interesting. There’s something to be said about what’s going on in the media right now. Kim Kardashian is on the cover of Allure magazine. Allure is one of the biggest beauty magazine’s in the world, and these people, her and Britney Spears, almost have more Twitter followers than the President of the United States. Would I personally want to be on a reality show? Absolutely not. I get nervous going to a restaurant. I’m not a shy person, but I don’t like constantly being judged, and I think that’s what you put yourself out there for.”

Vanessa on whether Nick looks back on it as a positive experience in his life: “I think he looks back on it as both positive and negative, for obvious reasons. Could he do another for positive reasons? Absolutely. Would he not want to do another one for negative reasons? Absolutely.”

Should Nick Lachey be expecting some gifts in the near future?

That appears to be the case as Vanessa Minnillo was seen picking up gifts and gift wrap from a Hallmark store in Sherman Oaks, CA on Thursday (August 26).

The sexy TV personality then went to a Best Buy store to pick up some electronics. Upon her departure, Vanessa was approached by a guy who asked her out on a date.

Vanessa responded: “Sorry, my boyfriend wouldn’t like that!”

While we generally disapprove of infidelity, in this case, we’d be willing to turn the other cheek.

Vanessa Minnillo joined a friend at a local West Hollywood Starbucks on Monday (August 23) for a drink.

After enjoying an hour or so of girl talk, the sexy TV personality could be seen heading back to her car with an iced tea in tow.

Meanwhile, Vanessa has recently taken on a project with AXE shower products to motivate men to keep up with their personal hygiene.

“‘True beauty’ comes from within,” says Vanessa. “But, guys, don’t kid yourselves, you will have no chance with the ladies if you don’t pay attention to all aspects of your game. This study proves what us girls have known forever – clean guys are sexy – and a great way to ensure you are clean is with AXE Shower Gel.”

Vanessa Minnillo spent the afternoon today (August 10) in beautification mode.

Stepping out for some self improvement, the 29-year-old television personality kept her tresses tamed at La Scala salon in West Hollywood.

Meanwhile, Vanessa’s longtime beau Nick Lachey says he would star in a reality TV show with his lady love.

Insisting his previous experiences haven’t put him off doing a similar program, he says: “There’s nothing in the works right now. I think it would pose a unique set of challenges. I guess the positive is that I’m actually familiar with those challenges. The negative would be I’m also familiar with those challenges. It’s hard to say never to anything. You never know.”

The 36-year-old star also praises his “powerful” girlfriend, admitting he loves her femininity.

“It’s four years now. She’s probably the most unique woman I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing,” he gushes. “She’s feminine and beautiful and sexy and she’s also probably the most powerful person I’ve ever had the opportunity to know. She’s very unique, headstrong, passionate… a great girl.”

He adds: “She’s a leader, a go-getter, not one to sit back and let things be dictated to her. She and I are very much alike, two fiery people. We have the same birthday [and] we’re very similar personalities, which is great. She’s the most unique and special person I’ve ever known!”

However despite the words of love, Nick said the couple have no marriage plans yet. “I’m sure at some point I will get engaged but not even I know when that moment will be.”
