“We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time … We might elope if it gets to that point … I will be part of designing my own wedding gown.”
—Jessica Simpson talks to Women’s Wear Daily about her wedding plans with former football player Eric Johnson. I’m secretly hoping these two get hitched in a Vegas wedding chapel and that Jessica wears one of her prom dresses for the occasion. [People] Keep reading »
Looks like Jessica Simpson and Christina Aguilera both have new jobs. On the heels of her arrest for public intoxication, while her new BF Matthew Rutler was charged with a DUI, NBC announced that Xtina will be a musician coach on their “American Idol” knockoff, “The Voice,” a series that will debut on April 26. “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms,” Christina said.

“I just let it flow. My fiance taught me that. He’ll get up in the morning and just write, so nothing blocks his emotional life. It doesn’t even have to be in sentence form; he just gets everything out, and that way he can function without getting in the way of himself, without being aggressive or judgmental. We do that together. Sometimes he takes that hour just reading, we’ll get out of bed and just read aloud to each other. He has so many books. Like, just books and books and books and books.”
– Jessica Simpson, who graces the cover of New York‘s Spring Fashion issue, seems quite smitten with her beau, Eric Johnson, and has embraced his somewhat spiritual approach to life. Reading aloud, huh? That’s kind of cute. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Jessica Simpson never went to the prom. But she wants you, or at least your younger cousin, to look gorgeous at yours. So in addition to her line of shoes, bags, jeans, etc—apparently, her apparel fiefdom is valued at almost $1 billion a year—Jessica is now creating prom dresses for David’s Bridal. As the press release reads, “Inspired by the fabulous designer gowns I’ve worn to red carpet events, my affordable collection is designed to fit and flatter a variety of body types and help girls achieve their own red carpet style for prom.” The dresses cost between $139 and $229, and honestly, look pretty nice. I am thoroughly obsessed with the space age tie dye of the one on the left and am considering purchasing it. Even though I’d be wearing it to my 15-year reunion rather than to an actual prom.

Wuh woh. Jessica Simpson should never have busted up her friendship with Ken Paves. She really needs him. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
A couple months ago, I went to either Walmart or Target to buy some house stuff. While I was there, I wandered through the women’s clothing section. I saw a pair of black sweatpants, and since that’s a staple of my professional blogger wardrobe, I grabbed them without trying them on and threw them in my shopping cart. So, this morning, I (sorry!) sit down on the toilet, look down, and see the label on the back of the sweatpants for the first time. At first, I thought I was misreading what I was seeing. But I hadn’t. The label read: “MILEY CYRUS.” The horror, the horror! I would rather die than be caught wearing anything by Miley Cyrus, and now I had been wearing Miley Cyrus for months. It was like the time I checked out a pair of hot high-heeled shoes, and then realized they were made by … Jessica Simpson. What designers would you never, ever wear? Keep reading »
We were pretty impressed and surprised by the following facts about Jessica Simpson:
- Her style endeavors have been something of an undercover winner. Apparently, in 2010, her empire of fashion and cosmetics will net $750 million.
- She is the only celeb fashion entrepreneur to top $1 billion in annual sales.
- Her net worth is $100 million, but not for long … it’s expected to go way, way up.
- Next year, she’s expanding her brand even more to include a new sportswear line.
We knew that stuff was selling, but we didn’t realize it was really, really selling. [AOL] Keep reading »
“After getting out of the NFL, [Eric] went to this healer and is very healthy. For Thanksgiving we have to make a Tofurkey! It doesn’t sound right! It’s gonna be jiggly and weird.”
—Jessica Simpson on celebrating Thanksgiving with her new fiance, Eric Johnson, who happens to be a vegan. As a vegetarian myself, I’d like to assure Jess that the tofurkey won’t be jiggly—just really dry and super bland. I say skip it and just have lots of cornbread stuffing instead.

When Jessica Simpson became engaged last week, everyone thought it was conveniently timed with her ex-husband Nick Lachey’s engagement. But this week, the rumor mill is churning over the idea that Jessica is actually pregnant and is having a shotgun wedding. We suspect the latter and have noticed four signs that Jess is indeed with child. Check them out after the jump … Keep reading »
Love this clip of Jessica Simpson on “The Early Show” as she crafts the fictional narrative of her life, I mean promotes her new Christmas album. We can see that pregnancy face from a mile away, Jess. That ain’t no flu. That’s the look of a woman with morning sickness. And the “don’t smell my breath” business isn’t helping. Also, it wasn’t a total surprise when Eric Johnson proposed to her. He had it planned forever. It had nothing to do with Nick Lachey getting engaged the week before or, you know, a pregnancy. And that vintage, ruby Tiffany ring from 1910? Eric’s idea as well. He picked it out and paid for it. As we speak, pigs are flying out of my butt. We’re making bets here at The Frisky about when she’ll make the pregnancy announcement. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
