A little bit of the Roman Empire makes an appearance

If you ever secretly suspected that the rich and famous live a twisted, decadent, Caligula-like existence outside the constraints and expectations of society that the rest of us are forced by circumstance and station to observe, no matter how much we’d like to cast off those shackles and live a debased, id-driven existence—well, Vanessa Minnillo ain’t exactly trying to disprove your notions.

Nick Lachey was in town to celebrate his pending nuptials to the Disaster Movie star along with best man Drew Lachey and fellow 98 Degrees-er Jeff Timmons.

We’re this close to seeing celebs command partiers to partake in orgies and gladiatorial combat on the dance floor. And it’s going to be awesome, you guys.
