New Year's Eve Review: Nick Lachey, Vannesa Minnillo Suck Face

by at . Comments

In Times Square Sunday night, at least two people found warmth in each other as the ball dropped:

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo ignored the cold weather, along with countless fans, for a few moments and focused on each other.

Just before midnight, the two took their spot in the window facing down on the crowd and discussed the end of 2006. But off camera, things heated up between the lovebirds.

Lachey whispered into Minnillo's ear and kissed her neck. The occasion appeared to overwhelm Minnillo, who responded by dabbing away joyful tears.

At midnight, the couple kissed with more passion than Britney Spears and Matt Leinart. The whole room watched as they looked into each other's eyes and, between sips of champagne, whispered and kissed some more.

It was beautiful.

Meanwhile, Lachey's ex-wife, Jessica Simpson, was also in New York to ring in the New Year â€" with her boy toy John Mayer.

The pair, who have been linked in the past, arrived together in the Hudson Hotel's VIP room just after 2:10 a.m. and held court for about 40 minutes. They sat across from Christina Aguilera and her husband, Jordan Bratman.

There's no word on what Katie Rees did during the evening. But you can bet it didn't involve a lot of clothing.
