Washington: Vanessa Minnillo has branded her husband Nick Lachey’s ex-wife Jessica Simpson as the “elephant in the room”.

The TV host-and-model admitted their relationship is under huge attention because of Lachey’s previous spouse, but said that she hopes the paparazzi will spare them and let them enjoy married life in peace.
“It’s funny to me that the paparazzi care, because I’d like to think that Nick and I are somewhat boring. But they care,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying on TLC reality special ‘Nick and Vanessa’s Dream Wedding’.
While talking about Simpson, who is engaged to Eric Johnson, she said that she thinks her husband’s ex-missus would pray as much as she does to keep prying eyes away from their personal life.
“I think that she would probably pray as much as I do that they allow us to have our own moments,” Minnillo stated while referring to Simpson as “the elephant in the room”.
The couple tied the knot in front of just 35 friends and family in a private Caribbean ceremony on Necker Island earlier this month.
