I read the announcement today and had three immediate thoughts about Jessica Simpson announcing her engagement to Eric Johnson…
- Is it really true?
- Is she happy…I hope this is not tied in any way to Nick (previous husband) announcing his engagement a week or two ago.
- Why didn’t she call me so I could consult on #1 and #2 above.
Jessica is one of my best friends, but she is not aware of this. She is not like any of the friends I have in real life, and I am not a stalker so don’t get concerned. I haven’t written her a fan letter, I don’t try to find her contact info, and I don’t think about her every day.
I have followed her from afar since the days she was on the show “Newlyweds” with previous husband mentioned above. Nothing against you Nick, but I don’t want to give your last name as this post is not about you.
I was happy for her as she started dating again, and sad for her when she was blamed for the Cowboys losing while she was dating Tony Roma. I don’t think the team is doing well since they broke up so not sure who they are blaming now…but maybe they are getting better this year. I don’t need to follow them now that Jessica is not dating him. I catch snippets of her life – when she has a new record out, a new boyfriend, a new show on inner beauty, and a funny tweet.
She isn’t afraid to tweet a picture of herself and Eric kissing to show how happy she is, and then to make a comment about how funny she looks. (and anyone who watched the Newlywed show will remember these two – “I don’t eat Buffalo” when asked if she wanted some buffalo wings, and “is chicken of the sea chicken or tuna”?)
Just don’t allow cameras to record your relationship. The reality show capture of people’s lives isn’t turning out well for anyone.
