Jessica Simpson Talks Running Into Nick Lachey

Nothing's more awkward than running into an ex -- especially when you're both with new loves.

Jessica Simpson was out on a date with her current beau Eric Johnson last week at Hollywood hotspot The Red O...which just so happened to be the same spot where her ex-husband Nick Lachey was dining with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo!

But the couples avoided any uncomfortable conversation, as Simpson, 30, opted to stay away from Lachey. "He was at the same restaurant," The singer-reality star confirmed to USA Today. "I didn't speak to him."

Perhaps Simpson was too blissfully happy with Johnson, 31, to be bothered with her ex. "He definitely makes me very happy," Simpson tells USA Today about her boyfriend. "He brings out a lot of light in me and makes me very comfortable being who I am. It's nice to be with somebody who praises you for the right reasons."

Still, Simpson, who's gearing up for another reality series about facing your fears, isn't ready to be a "newlywed" again anytime soon. "Wedding? Right now I'm focused on my precious nephew and godson," she says.

If you were in the same restaurant as your ex, would you ignore them? Chime in below!
