Vanessa Minnillo will soon be Vanessa Lachey

Vanessa Minnillo will put something fresh on the screen when she joins “Winter Wipeout” in January: a new name, Vanessa Lachey.
She tweeted it Friday and confirmed it Sunday on the American Music Awards red carpet: The relatively newlywed missus is taking hubby Nick Lachey’s last name, legally and professionally. The couple got married in July, capturing the event for a reality-TV special.
Regarding the name change, she wrote on Twitter: “So…. I’m making it official, and I LOVE my ‘new name’! @VanessaLachey …. has a nice ring to it ;-)”
The soon-to-be-former Minnillo has joined the “Wipeout” gang as host, now that Jill Wagner has moved to “Teen Wolf.” “Winter Wipeout” premieres Jan. 5.
So, if seeing Santa get clobbered puts you in a holiday mood, check out the promo below — Mrs. Lachey is moving into dangerous territory.
