Is Vanessa Minnillo a Girl Gone Bad?

Say isn't so! Nick Lachey's honey, Vanessa Minnillo, is getting a bad rap as of late. Yesterday disturbing pictures of a pre-rehab Lindsay Lohan surfaced, in which the starlet was playing with knives -- and a pretty brunette. The brunette in question? Vanessa Minnillo. Now more people are talking that the former Miss USA is not as sweet as she may seem. Vannesa moved her stuff into's Nick's Beverly Hills pad in April, and, soon after, V decided not to renew her contracts as host of MTV's TRL and Entertainment Tonight correspondent, in hopes of landing a movie career. Now, sources are buzzing that it was ET execs that weren't so happy with Vanessa. Supposedly when producers flew her to Los Angeles to cover the Grammys, "she was extremely high maintenance," said one source. "She insisted they fly her own hair and makeup people and her personal assistant out with her every time she flew to L.A. She only flew first class and stayed at the Four Seasons, and then she didn't want to work. "Vanessa wants to be a celebrity, not interview them," said the source. "She wouldn't conduct post-show interviews because she wanted to party. She expected to be paid a full-time salary for a part-time job." After, Vanessa's bosses decided Ms. Diva wouldn't be covering the Oscars. Page Six says they've seen her girl-behaving-badly shtick themselves, when they spotted Vanessa at one of the fall fashion shows "changing seats for 15 minutes until she was satisfied." The paper says she's "been known to bark orders at cocktail waitresses and cause scenes when she goes club hopping at night." Vanessa's rep denied any "diva behavior" and told Page Six, "She chose to leave ET because her contract ended. This is the first I've heard about any bad behavior."
