Performing with the Pussycat Dolls (a.k.a. PCD) is apparently becoming a Hollywood hottie rite of passage. Everyone's angling to loosen up their buttons and shake things up on stage with the Dolls, even if that's not actually possible -- you either undo the buttons or you don't.

THG NOTE: Isn't it appropriate that as a six-girl crew, PCD technically constitutes a sextet?

Anyway, it's only fitting, given the popularity of PCD and Hollywood stars guest starring with them, what T.H. Gossip learned this morning. The lovely and in-demand Vanessa Minnillo, 25, will join the raunchy feline crew at the Pussycat Dolls Lounge at Pure in Las Vegas Nov. 10.

After that? Nick Lachey's lady friend has joined the cast of 2007's Fantastic Four sequel, her rep confirms. Yes, that means Vanessa Minnillo and Jessica Alba in the same motion picture. Can we purchase tickets in advance?

What a difference a day makes. Or getting photographed in public without asking to be. Despite telling David Letterman the day before that he learned his lesson and is keeping his current relationship out of the spotlight, boy band God Nick Lachey takes the lovely Vanessa Minnillo by the hand as they leave a New York City hotel on Thursday.

Yeah, it's probably a good thing Nick doesn't attempt any new reality shows. Jessica Simpson may have nice boobs, but really, there's not a whole lot going on upstairs.

We all love to show our friends and family the pics on our digital camera when we get together. But rarely to we catch a celebrity in this all too common act.

Here we see the lovely Vanessa Minnillo showing off some digital pictures to her dad, who looks beyond enthralled. What is she showing him? What's she have to say about it? We have some ideas:

"Dad, here's the inspiration and musical brilliance that is Nick Lachey performing live in concert before throngs of screaming 13-year-old girls."

"Okay, so, I saw Angelina Jolie in Hollywood the other day. Some website said we look alike, but I just don't see the resemblance."

"This is the position Nick said Jessica Simpson wouldn't do!"

"Here's me with the cast of Laguna Beach. That Kyndra is such a skank!"

We know we'll never top Saddam Hussein and Mel Gibson. Sometimes the stars are aligned, the anti-semitic remaks are flowing and everything just falls into place.

But we can't give up. That's why we've given Angelina Jolie and Vanessa Minnillo a pair of dark sunglasses, asked them to purse those full lips and admired the similiarities. The sexy, sexy similarities ...

We've heard the reasons why Nick Lachey digs Vanessa Minnillo with such passion. She likes sports, is a guy's gal, yadda, yadda, yadda.

We're guessing the kind of dance moves Minnillo showed off this weekend in Las Vegas don't hurt, either.

With Lachey nowhere to be seen, the former Miss Teen USA spent the even celebrating the release of John Tucker Must Die at Pure Nightclub in Caesar's Palace. The film's leading man, Jesse Metcalfe, was also there.

As reported by TMZ, Minnillo sang and chatted with the crowd, took pictures of herself with fan's cameras and downed what looked like a shot, which she did not seem to enjoy.

Forget who looks better - we'd like to see Jessica Simpson and Minnillo in a dance off, right, fellas?

They haven't exactly been sitting in a tree, but this hasn't stopped Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo from doing a lot of public k-i-s-s-i-n-g recently.

But why her, Nick? What is it about this host of MTV's Total Request Live?

"She's a guys' girl," a friend of the couple's told Us magazine for a cover story. "Jessica was always about going somewhere that was a scene with a big entourage. Vanessa can play darts and chill."

Evidently, balls also played a role. Not Nick's. Vanessa's love for them ... on the field.

After all, Minnillo also scored points for being a fellow sports nut. While Simpson rolled her eyes at Lachey's passion, Minnillo revels in it.

One story said that when she and Lachey were still in the platonic friendship stage, "Nick commented on his love for the [hometown NFL team], Cincinnati Bengals and Vanessa blew him away by running off the team's poor stats," says a Lachey source. "He tells friends, ‘It's like talking to your best guy friend, but she's a smoking-hot chick.'"

But just how hot? Check out this picture of Vanessa and Jessica and let us know!

We hope Jessica Simpson was busy studying her lines for The View on Wednesday afternoon.

At the very least, maybe her TV dial was broken; otherwise, the singer may have been tuned in to Total Request Live when ex-husband, Nick Lachey, appeared with girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo to promote his latest single. The pair was not unaffectionate:

The name of the single? I Can't Hate You Anymore. Absolutely no way that's referring to Simpson, right?

Stop the presses! A couple was acting like a couple!

Perhaps in an attempt to prove his non-wussiness, Nick Lachey brought babe friend, Vanessa Minnillo, to the New York City club Butter Monday night, where they partied with fellow celebrities, danced, kissed and partied throughout the evening.

Jessica Simpson was nowhere to be found this time, as Lachey - looking sharp as ever in jeans and a button-down shirt - and Minnillo, in a red dress, began the night chatting in their booth with Russell Simmons before Minnillo danced on the banquet to "Hips Don't Lie" by Shakira.

The Gossip wil need a second after hearing that ... okay ...

When Jay-Z's "99 Problems" came on at around 12:45 a.m., Minnillo indulged Lachey in what would be the first of several lap dances. Yes, SEVERAL.

The MTV VJ wasn't done yet, however. She was up on the dance floor again soon after giving Lachey 98 degrees of fun, dancing with Jamie-Lynn Sigler to the Jackson 5's "Want You Back" and "Sweet Home Alabama."

From there, the night simply rolled - and grinded - on. "SexyBack," by Justin Timerbake, came on and Minnillo settled into Lachey's lap and sang it to him.

But the song that Lachey enjoyed the most was the Rocky theme, "Eye of the Tiger," which got him waving his arms and moving his head to the beat.

Reports didn't state whether or not he hugged Apolla Creed on the beach.

Later, Lachey did shots with Wilmer Valderrama, who was holding court with friends including Erika Christensen. Finally, the pair left at 3 a.m., holding hands.

A rep for Lachey had no comment. Perhaps because there wasn't any real news - except for, you know, those scorching hot lap dances. Yowza!

Okay, maybe Jessica Simpson isn't THAT mature. After greeting ex-husband, Nick Lachey, with a friendly hug last week, Jess went on TRL yesterday and premiered her new video for "A Public Affair."

Terrible Singer

Sadly, Vanessa Minnillo - Lachey's current squeeze - wasn't hosting the program, leaving viewers without any enjoyable, violent cat fight. But when the video finally came on - involving Simpson skating around with gal pals, Christina Applegate and Eva Longoria - there appeared to be a direct slam at Minnillo.

While she's lacing up her boots, Jessica spots a hunky dark-haired stranger canoodling with a brunette; this supposed slut then has an aggressive fantasy focused on yanking out Simpson's hair in a fit of jealousy.

And just who plays this female foe? A TV entertainment reporter named Maria Menounos.

We're not sure if Jessica is trying for any real-life metahpors here, but if she is - well, we're confused. Didn't Simpson divorce Lachey?
