Star magazine reports that 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey had wanted to go on vacation with wife Jessica Simpson in Paris, but had to quickly change plans after Jessica’s meddling father Joe got wind of the trip and wanted to get MTV to film a MTV special, according to a source. Joe hoped filming ‘The Newlyweds Take A Honeymoon’ in France would show how popular Jessica is in Europe. Nick then secretly booked a vacation at Hawaii’s Fairmont Kea Lani Maui, and resisted Jessica’s request to invite her sister Ashlee and boyfriend Ryan Cabrera. “Nick held his ground, telling her, ‘Baby, this is just for us. I want you all to myself’.” But midway through the vacation, Ashlee and Ryan ended up joining them in Maui.
