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.”

Nick Lachey Accused of Choking Fan at Football Game

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- 98 Degrees member and TV personality Nick Lachey has been accused of assaulting a fan at a football game in San Diego on Sunday.

The unnamed fan tells he was heckled by Lachey at the San Diego Chargers' game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Lachey's hometown team.

The fan claims Lachey and his friends ridiculed him for a replica jersey he was wearing that bore the name of an old Chargers player.  The fan says Lachey made an offensive remark about the player -- the nature of the comment is not specified in the report -- after which the fan's wife told Lachey, "Well, he lasted longer than your boy band."

According to the fan, Lachey then called the wife a "f***ing b****" and grabbed him by the throat and shoved him to the ground.  TMZ has posted shaky video footage of the altercation.

Lachey and his friends were subsequently forced by security to leave the stadium.  The website reports the fan plans to file a police report over the incident.

Lachey's rep said in a statement Tuesday, "This was a verbal exchange between sports fans of opposing teams that went too far.  While Nick isn't proud of what happened, he did not choke anyone or use defamatory language to any women at the stadium -- which the videotape clearly supports.  Nick and his friends were interviewed by police outside the stadium and quickly released with no charges filed.  We categorically deny any accusations that say otherwise and would defend against those claims should they arise."          

Aside from his singing career, Lachey has hosted NBC's The Sing-Off and has been tapped to emcee the network's upcoming music competition The Winner Is.

Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo Expecting First Child 

Steve Granitz/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo are expecting.

During his guest-hosting stint on ABC's Live! With Kelly Monday, Lachey told Kelly Ripa that on the same day Minnillo last appeared on Live!, she didn't feel quite right.  Lachey said that evening, "She went to the store and got a pregnancy test and it came back positive. We're having a baby!"  The audience cheered wildly.

"This is the one thing that more than any other I've looked forward to, and it's overwhelming," Lachey said of his impending fatherhood.  Lachey was previously married to Jessica Simpson, but that union produced no children.

While in the hosting chair, Lachey also told Ripa that he hasn't yet found out the baby's sex, but he and Minnillio are planning to because, as he says, "I can't take the knowledge that someone out there knows, but I don't know!"
