When a surprised Jessica Simpson spotted ex-husband Nick Lachey just three tables away at L.A. eatery Red O Oct. 21, she had not-so-kind words for his dinner date Vanessa Minnillo, witnesses tell the new Us Weekly.

Simpson, 30, (dining with beau Eric Johnson, mom Tina and four other pals) didn't greet Lachey; instead, an observer tells Us, she angrily told her server: "'I hope Vanessa likes her clothes because I bought them for her, since Nick took all my money.'" (She and Lachey, 36, divorced in 2005.)

A Simpson confidante adds that the star "got nervous" when Lachey and his love of four years Minnillo, 29, unexpectedly showed up. "It was very weird and awkward."

Indeed, another Red O witness tells Us she "got really loud and started drinking margaritas and doing shots of tequila" to deal with her former spouse's presence.
