In an interview with Parade, Vanessa Minillo said that she and beau Nick Lachey shower together “at least twice a day.” The shower scene isn’t steamy—they mostly just whip through their routines while having a chat or as Lachey serenades her. (Not a joke; do you think he busts out “The Hardest Thing”?) Says Minillo, “You’re vulnerable [in the shower] and we just both let our guard down. I’ve had some of my most intimate conversations with him in the shower.”
Let’s put aside for a second their water conservation fail, and the fact that showering “at least twice a day” is not hygienically necessary—dermatologists actually say that your arms and legs don’t get *that dirty *on an average day, and that you really only have to lather under your arms and you know where when you shower. Our next thought is, “Does sharing beauty rituals make couples closer?” We have one friend who has no qualms with shaving her legs in front of her new boyfriend—and another who won’t even touch-up her makeup within eye-shot of her long-time partner.
So what do you think of grooming together: Real intimacy—or a real overshare?
