Jessica Simpson Is Engaged
Despite what she said last week, JESSICA SIMPSON was NOT “extremely happy” when she heard that her ex-husband, NICK LACHEY, was engaged.
–How do I know that? Because on Thursday . . . several days after Nick announced he and VANESSA MINNILLO were engaged . . . Jessica got engaged. (!!!)
–Jessica’s rep confirmed Friday that she and former NFL tight end ERIC JOHNSON are getting married. There’s no word on a wedding date. Jessica and Eric have been dating since May.
(–Sure, it’s entirely possible that their engagement was borne out of nothing more than their love, and their assurance that they are, indeed, meant for each other. But how PROBABLE is it?)
–Jessica showed off her engagement ring during an appearance on Saturday. It’s a ruby flanked by two diamonds.
