Sudsy love!

Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey love hitting the showers — together.

"We shower, honestly, at least twice a day," Minnillo, 29, told

"We shower in the morning and we shower at some point during the day or before bed. It's so funny because we've turned it into an intimate time for each other," the True Beauty host added of Lachey, 36, her beau of four years.

How do they both fit into the shower stall, anyway? "We both have our own shower heads, so we just talk while we're soaping up and doing our hair," the star explains.

But the scene doesn't get too steamy, she insists: "It's not a sexual thing and it's not a romantic thing, it just becomes an intimate thing. You're in your full form, so to speak, and you're vulnerable and we just both let our guard down. I've had some of my most intimate conversations with him in the shower."

And Lachey also does what he does best during those wash-up sessions: he sings! "It's kind of cute; it's become a routine," Minillo says. "Sometimes I have to catch myself because I take for granted how beautiful his voice is and how it's at the palm of my hand. So I try to appreciate whenever he does his warm-ups."

The star also talks about the possibility of doing a reality show with her man — who famously starred in Newlyweds with ex-wife Jessica Simpson.

"I personally have no desire," she claims. "Nick has done one before and he was very successful at it, and whatever he chooses to do with his future I will support him 100 percent. But me personally, I don't know. I think that there's something to be said for keeping intimate moments to yourself, but he said it best, 'You never can say never.' But I personally don't want to do one."

Thoughts on Simpson? "The past is the past," she says.
