Jessica Simpson and her out of work boyfriend announced their engagement just days after her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, announced he was going to be marrying Vanessa Minnillo. Insert a million PR stunt queen jokes here. It’s far too easy to think of Creepy Papa Joe offering Eric Johnson a lifetime supply of mac and cheese (the good kind), a 3-year subscription to Field and Stream magazine and all a nacho cheese fountain in exchange for an engagement ring.
Jessica was pimping her clothing collection at Dillards in Kansas City on Saturday and wearing what is rumored to be her engagement ring. It is a 3-stone ring with a center ruby stone that is flanked by two diamonds.
I shouldn’t be so mean. I am sure it is really had nothing to do with Nick. Papa Joe’s trip to Jared’s fall clearance bin was actually just holiday shopping and Eric attending his Stunt Queens Club and swearing on a stack of Us Weekly’s was purely coincidental.
