Who's better off, in the long run?

It's been years since MTV broke up Jessica Simpson's marriage to Nick Lachey on Newlyweds, but the couple still has something to fight about. Seems Jess didn't cotton to a gay joke Nick made last week on Bravo, RadarOnline says. Like saying it to her face would be better.

Lachey was on Watch What Happens Live last Tuesday when he told 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.” That's a clear reference to Papa Joe's connection to male escort Bryce Chandler, the 21-year-old man who allegedly split up Joe's marriage to Jessica's mom, Tina.

Lachey later told Cohen (who is gay), "It may not be (funny) tomorrow, but it is tonight." Indeed not, because a source told Radar, “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.”

Of course, Nick has a few points on Jess, because he married Vanessa Minnillo and had a son, Camden, while Jess is still waiting to close the deal with baby daddy Eric Johnson. Then again, Jess has a billion-dollar fashion empire and all Nick has is a 98 Degrees reunion album. Flip a coin.
