When the news broke late last year that Joe Simpson was gay and had sex with male escorts, it didn’t come as a shock to anyone except the rest of the Simpson family. Ashlee started partying so much that her ex-husband, Pete Wentz, threatened to take their child away. Tina, Jessica’s mother, considered suicide, even though Joe has denied all of the allegations. But, Nick Lachey, Jessica’s ex-husband told us what we already needed to know. Radar Online reports:
Nick shocked viewers of Watch What Happens Live on Bravo last Tuesday night when he told host Andy Cohen, “The best thing about not having Joe Simpson anymore as a father-in-law is I don’t have to play grab-ass under the table on Easter Sunday.”
Surprise! Jessica Simpson is pissed.
After Nick’s insensitive TV comment, an insider told RadarOnline.com: “Jessica was shocked and horrified that Nick said what he said. She’s upset. Nick might have thought it was funny and he got a cheap laugh, but to Jessica, it wasn’t — at all.”
We can all agree that Nick Lachey dodged a bullet by not marrying Jessica Simpson, and is now spending his time counting all his 98 Degrees money and impregnating Vanessa Minnillo. So if we’re keeping score at home, it’s Nick Lachey 2, Jessica Simpson 0.
