It seems like decades ago that Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson were the first couple of reality TV – but on Tuesday’s Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen couldn’t seem to forget!

When Lachey, 39, and the rest of 98 Degrees visited Cohen’s talk show, the singer’s ex-wife and her family were hot topics.

“During a question-and-answer game Cohen plays with celebrity guests, who can stay silent rather than answer an uncomfortable question, the subject of Simpson’s father, Joe, came up.

Cohen asked, “What is the best thing about no longer having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law?”

Nick’s brother, Drew, quickly interjected, “Everything!”

“What is the best thing about not having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law … I don’t have to play grab a–– under the table on Easter Sunday,” Nick said with a laugh.

“I am blushing!” Cohen remarked.

“Our publicist is freaking out right now,” Drew, 36, said.

“That’s very funny,” Cohen said.
