    Oh yay which couple will make it to the altar first!?!?

    • ultrawoman

      And which one will end in divorce first?

      • RK

        Whichever one has a reality show…

  • timelord24

    lol lol…i just wonder if eric johnson knows they’re engaged…

    • wino

      LOL. but he’s probably been plotting this all along. even if he signs a prenup, he can still mooch some significant money off her and her family.

  • dropper

    So they only met 6 months ago, when he was still married. His divorce just became final and as a topper he is currently unemployed. I suppose the fact that Nick Lachey announced his engagement last week has nothing to do with this? Good luck Jessica, you’re going to need it. Oh, and get Eric to sign a prenup.

      She couldn’t be anymore desperate. She said she was happy for Nick and Vanessa, and yet a week later announces her own engagement? Even if it was a truly romantic thing, why announce it right away? And yeah, we all know he’s a guy using her, and she’s desperate and sad. It’s really sad to hear her do this. Pre-nup indeed, her money is the only reason guys would touch her at this point.

      I was sitting in the Dr. office this morning reading an old People magazine. Not that old really, because it was the issue previewing alll of the new fall shows. And they had an article on Jessica and some other guy on vacation, specualting they were going to get married. Can’t remember his name, but it wasn’t Eric Johnson.

        I can remember also sitting in a doctors office and they had old, I mean really old people magazines. I read an article about Julia Roberts. She had just married Lyle Lovett and she declared that he was the love of her life. I get the impression this marriage will be the same as that one.

    No matter her intention or the free agent’s one, I wish her well.

      Come on now… :(

      It’s hard to call someone who’s made this much money with absolutely no talent a “loser.”

  • JPX

    It’s so pathetic. Obviously she threw a hissy fit when Nick announced his nuptuals and her loser boyfriend took pity on her. Of course, her boyfriend doesn’t have a job or monehy, but hey, that’s not an indicator of anything is it? They’ve known each other for 5 months, how long do you think this train wreck will last? Remember, everything Jessica does ends in failure.

    • etm

      ITA. She is so pathetic.

    • Jon

      No offense, but her boyfriend went to Yale and played for five years in the NFL, where he probably made more money than you ever will. I don’t care for Jessica Simpson any more than anyone else does, but to dismiss her fiance as having “no job or money” is just hilarious in a ridiculous sort of way.

  • jenn

    not really an nfl player anymore is he…last time was 2007…and even then he wasnt lighting up the field with his play…

    In the the words of Church Lady “How Conveeeeenient”.

  • Chris

    Well dude might not be in the NFL anymore….but he’s a Yale grad so he should be allright and if they have any kids, they should at least end up with half a brain.

    She really should’ve stayed with Nick. She’s been doing downhill ever since she dumped him

    • hannah

      exactly, she really effed that up. remember how she’d always complain when he would have the nerve to WATCH a football game but now she’s always dating fb players. she’s nuts.

  • Anne

    This reminds me of the “Friends” episode when Ross is marrying the British chick, and Rachel decides that she and the guy played by Tate Donovan need to get married in response. She’s all, “Let’s do something CRAZY! We never do anything crazy – hey, let’s, I dunno, GET MARRIED!”
    Picture the same words coming from someone much blonder and more vapid. Although, in my mind, Jessica probably came across much needier and whinier than Rachel.

    Three sentences. Enough said.
