Nick Lachey Dishes On Jessica Simpson Divorce

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- Hey, Nick Lachey said it, not us.

During an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Tuesday night, the 98 Degrees singer aired some alleged dirty laundry about his former father-in-law, Joe Simpson.

Host Andy Cohen asked Lachey, who was on the show with his fellow boybanders, “What is the best thing about no longer having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law?” Before the 39-year-old could answer, his brother Drew popped in and said, “Everything.”

Lachey’s response? “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.”

Cohen looked shocked and admitted he was blushing, as crew off camera screamed. “Our publicist is freaking out right now,” Drew Lachey quipped.

“It may not be [funny] tomorrow but it is tonight,” Lachey said.

Lachey, who’s married to TV host Vanessa (Minnillo) Lachey, also revealed that he hasn’t spoken to ex-wife Jessica Simpson in “probably six years.”

Pregnant Jessica Simpson Accidentally Reveals She's Having a Boy

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Pregnant Jessica Simpson inadvertently revealed she's expecting a boy on Wednesday's edition of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!

While discussing how her second pregnancy has been more difficult than her first, including more vomiting, she blurted out, "The crazy thing is, I never knew a wiener could actually make me nauseous."

After disclosing the baby's gender, she said, "Well I guess I just told the world that I'm having a boy!"

Host Jimmy Kimmel, who initially didn't realize her slip-up, joked, "I didn't even know what was happening. ...I thought maybe you were having a girl with a penis."

Simpson later said, "I can't believe I did that.  That was not planned."

When Kimmel asked her about the rumors that she'll name the baby Ace, she attempted to backtrack by declaring, "Let's hope it's a boy!"

Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson last May.  She announced her latest pregnancy last Christmas Day.

Jessica Simpson Teams with Jennifer Hudson in New Weight Watchers Ad

Youtube(NEW YORK) -- Jessica Simpson’s latest Weight Watchers commercial teams her up with another famous singer who shed a miraculous amount of pounds on the program: Jennifer Hudson.

Simpson and Hudson tout the benefits of Weight Watchers in the latest “Expect Amazing” ad, posted on YouTube Wednesday and debuting on TV Thursday. “I naturally became a healthier me,” says Hudson, who went from a size 16 to a size 6 in 2010, when she was Weight Watchers’ celebrity spokesperson. Simpson, who took on that role in May and lost more than 50 pounds, says, “I amazed myself.”

With another baby on the way, Simpson is no longer following the Weight Watchers program. On Christmas Day, the singer-turned-fashion designer revealed that she’s expecting her second child. She’s since showed off her burgeoning baby bump on Twitter.

2012 Ends With Baby Boom

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Last year ended with a boom — as in baby boom.

Several A-list celebrities announced at the end of the year that they were expecting in 2013.

On New Year’s Eve, Kim Kardashian, 32, confirmed the news that she is pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West’s child.

It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us. Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo,” the reality star tweeted Monday.

West, 35, first broke the news Sunday night during a concert in Atlantic City. The rapper told more than 5,000 concertgoers to congratulate his “baby mom” and that this was the “most amazing thing.”

Kardashian has long expressed her desire to have children. Around the time of her 30th birthday in October 2010, she told People that she thought she would have had four kids by then.

Instead, Kardashian married NBA star Kris Humphries the following year, and they split in October 2011 after 72 days of marriage. Their divorce is not yet finalized.

West and Kardashian began dating in April.

Also at year’s end, Jessica Simpson made headlines with the news on Christmas Day that she was expecting her second child with fiancé Eric Johnson.

On Dec. 30, Simpson tweeted a photo of her blooming midsection while clad in a bikini, along with the words “Bumpin’ and Proud!”

Simpson’s baby news dominated much of 2012. First there was her dramatic weight gain during pregnancy, then daughter Maxwell Drew’s birth in May, followed by the singer’s struggle to take off the baby weight while serving as a Weight Watchers celebrity spokesperson.

Simpson will go off her Weight Watchers diet now that she’s expecting again but will maintain her business agreement with the weight loss company as well as appear in the company’s ads, including one in which she shares her “happy news.”

Perhaps the biggest baby news of last year — and most eagerly awaited — came from Britain’s royal family.

In early December, St. James Palace announced that Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William were expecting their first child, who will eventually be the heir to the British throne.

The royal couple was forced to go public with the news of the pregnancy in Kate’s first trimester, after the duchess was admitted to a central London with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.

Now that the guessing game over when Kate and William would produce an heir is done, a new watch begins for them and the other expecting couples over those very first baby photos.

Jessica Simpson Confirms Another Baby’s on the Way

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for Jessica Simpson Collection(NEW YORK) -- It’s official: Jessica Simpson has another baby on the way.

Today, the 32-year-old pop star tweeted a photo of daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson sitting in front of a sand-drawn sign saying, “Big Sis.” It’s pretty much in line with the way Simpson announced her first pregnancy, dressing up as a mummy on Halloween 2011 and tweeting, “!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!”

Rumors that Simpson was pregnant with a second child sparked in November. She’s remained mum about that while touting her increasingly slim figure as the spokesperson for Weight Watchers, a gig she scored after giving birth to Maxwell in May and admitting that she weighed 170 pounds at the height of her pregnancy.

Simpson’s latest Weight Watchers commercial debuted on TV today. ”I didn’t need to be perfect to get here, to lose over 50 pounds on Weight Watchers,” Simpson says in the ad, clad in cowboy boots and driving a pickup truck. “I love food, I love life, and I had no idea I could be so in control and so free at the same time.”

It remains to be seen if Simpson will continue as Weight Watchers’ spokesperson with another baby on the way. A rep for the weight loss program didn’t immediately respond to’s request for comment.

Weight Watchers Mad at Pregnant Jessica Simpson?

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for Jessica Simpson Collection(LOS ANGELES) -- Jessica Simpson's rumored pregnancy isn't going over well at Weight Watchers headquarters, according to Us Weekly.

The magazine claims executives with the diet company are upset that Simpson is pregnant so soon after giving birth in early May to her daughter, Maxwell.  Simpson lost weight following her first pregnancy through a deal with Weight Watchers.

The magazine's source says, "She was already on thin ice with them since she didn't lose enough for the first ad, when they had to shoot from the waist up."

According to the magazine, Weight Watchers might scrap an upcoming ad campaign featuring Simpson -- in which she boasts of how she dropped 70 pounds -- because, a source says, "No one wants to hear about a pregnant woman dieting."

Simpson's deal with Weight Watchers is reportedly worth $4 million.

Jessica Simpson Shows Off Slim Waist in Sexy Halloween Costume

James Devaney/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Halloween was a treat for Jessica Simpson. Wednesday on Twitter, the 32-year-old new mom and Weight Watchers spokeswoman showed off her figure in a milk maid’s outfit, complete with a lace miniskirt, thigh-high boots and a waist-cinching corset.

Her fiance Eric Johnson posed in a Braveheart costume holding their daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, who was dressed as a rooster.

Simpson’s been on the slim-down warpath since giving birth in May and signing a reported $3 million dollar contract to be the celebrity face of Weight Watchers. In September, she told Katie Couric she had lost more than 40 pounds.

“During pregnancy, I didn’t really think about it,” she said about her weight gain. “I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen. All the weight did not come out with the baby.”

One of her biggest obstacles has been staying away from chocolate.

“I’ve never wanted chocolate more in my life,” she told Couric. I’ve had to really stay focused and focus on my diet and concentrate on what I’m putting in my body.”

Perhaps the Simpson-Johnson house will be giving out apples this year.
