Vanessa Minnillo has made a great name for herself by being beautiful. After winning the title of Teen Miss USA at age 17, the brunette bombshell landed a spot as a VJ on MTV’s TRL. She dated Yankee’s player Derek Jeter in the meantime. She became an NYC correspondent for Entertainment Weekly in 2005, and not shortly after, became Jessica Simpson’s sloppy seconds when she got together with boy bander Nick Lachey.
