Vanessa Minnillo is out of control…I guess

has confirmed what I already confirmed, namely that the brunette posing with Lindsay Lohan in those knife pictures from yesterday are Vanessa Minnillo. Additionally, they report that Minnillo is extremely high maintenance and that her partying and diva-like behavior are giving her a bad rep in the TV industry. She had contracts with “TRL” and “Entertainment Tonight”, but they expired in April and neither were renewed.

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 … 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.”

Minnillo was also spotted at one of the fall fashion shows changing seats for 15 minutes until she was satisfied, and apparently she’s known to yell at cocktail waitresses and cause scenes when she goes club hopping at night. Which is weird, because I’m known for causing scenes when I go club hopping at night too. They usually have to call in the fire marshal because, and I quote, I’m just “too hot to handle.”
