Joe Simpson“s quite a forgiving guy … “cause Jessica”s dad tells our sources he would still have a beer with Nick Lachey … even after his daughter”s ex-hubby TRASHED him on national television.

It was just last month that Nick went on “Watch What Happens Live” and told Andy Cohen … the best part of divorcing Jessica was not having to play grab ass under the table w/ Joe at family events.

But Joe — who hit up Greystone Manor with 3 pretty hot chicks this weekend — told us he still “loves” Nick after the diss … and praised him for being a good husband to his daughter.

Sidenote — at one point in the video, Joe”s hot friend in the pink dress addresses the gay rumors … even though nobody really asked her. So, check that out.
