Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey recently tied the knot in a small ceremony, but one family member that wasn't invited was Minnillo's mom, Helen Bondoc.
According to Star, Bondoc lives in a small trailer park and hasn't seen her daughter since she was nine. She had no idea Minnillo was even getting married, and when she was shown a picture of her daughter, Bondoc replied, "Oh my goodness, she's beautiful!"
There's about a 60% chance that this is just some random, crazy woman they found living in a trailer in the desert.
“I didn't have a clue that Vanessa was getting married. We last spoke about 12 years ago, on the phone. I just wanted to talk to her and tell her everything straight about my life. But I still think about her all the time, and I still love her dearly.”
Apparently, this woman met Minnillo's father, Vincent Minnillo, at Clark Air Base in the Philippines in the 70s. They married, and then had Vanessa and adopted a son, Vince Jr.
"Our relationship wasn't that sexual. I think we both just wanted to be with somebody."
A year after Vanessa was born, they moved to Los Angeles, but the couple soon divorced. After that, there was a bunch of moving around until Bondoc eventually abandoned her children and left them with their father.
"I worked as a waitress at a strip club in Florida, and as a hostess at the Palomino strip club in Las Vegas. I made a lot of money.”
Gee, I wonder why she wasn't invited to the wedding.
