Jessica Simpson “Mortified” By Nick Lachey’s Tasteless Gay Jokes

130508_2645234_After_Show__Nick_Lachey_Pleads_the_Fifth__577x385_29285955612Remember those hilarious gay rumors about Jessica Simpson’s father last year? Well, just like his music, 98 Degrees frontman Nick Lachey is so far behind the times, he’s trying to cash in on them again.

In 2012, an aspiring male model male escort accused Joe Simpson of allegedly having a sexual relationship with him. As a result, his wife pretended to commit suicide and Jessica Simpson gained a ton of weight. (Who knew Ashlee would turn out to be the sane one?)

Flash forward to last Tuesday night, when Nick Lachey told Andy Cohen on an episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live that “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.”

Later realizing the botched gay joke would probably hinder his already-flopped new album’s sales, Lachey admitted “It may not be [funny] tomorrow, but it is tonight.”

Was it?

According to Radar Online and a source close to Jessica Simpson, she was “mortified!” by Nick’s insensitive comments. “Jessica was disappointed that he would even speak about her at all,” the source continued. “It’s been eight years since they married and six years since they last spoke. Jessica doesn’t feel that Nick has a right to speak about her business anymore.”

We don’t know what’s worse: Nick Lachey’s gay jokes or the fact that he managed to get on late night television!

    I’d still do him and his brother maybe even Joe Simpson too if he brings a hot escort

    Recent statistics suggest that children are now $350k each.

    It looks like the real joke(s) are on the breeders, however you add it up.

    Procreate, people!

    Nick Lachey may not be relevant anymore but he seems like a nice enough guy, he’s hot and I think he can sing well. There’s no reason to trash him so bad. But the comments about Joe Simpson were pretty f’d up

    Would still fuck. Not sorry.

    SHE is mortified? Is this the same tacky whore who made comments about the size of Nick Lachey’s manhood? Screw her. That was a funny remark, and the Simpson family deserves every bit of the bitter harvest it reaps.

    “Gay rumors about her father”? The man dyed his hair golden blonde, re-styled it, and is out wearing a pastel yellow pull over sweater and yellow slacks and white shoes and dark sunglasses roaming around W Hollywood with a twink boyfriend.

    Wonder how those “rumors” get started. I saw the pics on DListed and his make-over was hilarious. I believe he’s pretty much as out as you could be, in fact: he’s gone to extremes. What do you expect from an ex-Baptist preacher!

    @fredo777: Yep, he’s still a hot piece. I don’t have to converse with his dick.

    Re: The ‘He’s hot’ etc. comments…

    Is that what’s really important here? Try thinking with the head between your shoulders for a change.

    If you care more about what he looks like than what he thinks, then you’re the bigger idiot. Pardon my bluntness, but you sound just as bad as your straight counterparts when they objectify women as little more than sexual objects.

    @Elloreigh: Calm your fucking nerves.

    I didn’t find the gay jokes to be all that offensive + have heard/said worse. It’s called having a sense of humor, first of all. Secondly, this is a fluff piece, not an article about a supreme court decision. If I want to weigh in on how attractive I find a person in a blog article, I will + I’ll thank you to keep your judgment to yourself.

    @fredo777: SNAP!

  • hephaestion

    It wasn’t a “gay joke” at all. It was a comment about one person. It had nothing to do with gay people in general.

  • queertyreader

    Nick Lachey AND Jessica Simpson are both douches!
    He is mean-spirited and obviously a bit homophobic (for making jokes about gay people) and she wears fur and obviously isn’t the brightest candle on the cake.
