There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not Jessica Simpson‘s father Joe Simpson is gay, especially in light of his recent divorce. That’s why Nick Lachey‘s comments about his former father-in-law while visiting “Watch What Happens: Live” were so shocking.

“The best thing about not having Joe Simpson anymore as a father-in-law is I don’t have to play grab-a** under the table on Easter Sunday,” Lachey tells host Andy Cohen in the above video, causing Cohen’s jaw to drop.

In addition to comments about Joe, Lachey also surprised the audience with how long it’s been since he spoke to his ex-wife. The 98 Degrees singer is now married to Vanessa Minnillo, and he says he doesn’t keep in touch with Simpson.

“It’s been years. Honestly, probably six years,” Lachey says. “It was like another lifetime ago.”

Do either of these revelations surprise you?
