Ashlee Simpson Approves of Sister Jessica’s Boyfriend, Tony Romo

We already knew that Jessica’s pops approved of Tony. Heck, story goes that he’s the one who set ‘em up. Then again, this is the same dude who supposedly bragged about his daughter’s rackage, so that shouldn’t come as one bit of a shock. Well, now we know that the family support for Jessica Simpson’s boyfriend, Tony Romo, is unanimous. As Ashlee told US Magazine:

“I love him!” the singer, 23, gushed to Usmagazine.com at the FUSE TV Grammy party at Goa nightclub in Hollywood last night.

When asked if she is happy for Jessica, she replied, “Absolutely happy. He is really cool.”

Added Ashlee’s beau, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz: “He is a cool dude.”

Well, he’s on TV just as much as you guys, he threw for a Cowboys record 36 touchdowns this year, and he’s the quarterback of the Dallas freaking Cowboys. Doesn’t get much better than that. How could he not be a cool guy sporting a resume of that sort. I’m not sure how they all got to know each other. Maybe it was at one of the sing-along parties, or who knows, could’ve been in Mexico. And let me tell you, between Carrie Underwood, Sophia Bush, and now Jessica Simpson, Romo certainly has quite the dating resume.

Michael Vick’s Pit Bulls to Star in Reality TV Show

Michael Vick DogA few days ago I passed along the news that some of Vick’s pit bulls had been rescued and were up for adoption. (I’m still interested in putting together an LBS fundraiser to snag one as the site’s official mascot, fyi). Anyway, pressing along, apparently these dogs are heading to Hollywood for the big time, as WSBTV reports:

Pit bulls that once belonged to Michael Vick will be featured in a reality show this summer about an animal sanctuary.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 22 of Vick’s dogs are now at Dogtown. The National Geographic Channel began a series about Dogtown, an animal sanctuary in Utah, in January.

In an episode airing this summer will focus on four of the toughest cases and the staff’s efforts to resocialize the aggressive pit bulls, according to the National Geographic Channel.

My goodness, people actually watch this stuff? Now, I wouldn’t mind watching a show to see Vick adjusting to life in prison — that would be tight. You know, footage of him getting Bubba’d in the shower with soap suds seeping down … never mind. But a reality show about the dogs trying to resocialize? That’s incredible. Who would’ve guessed that these dogs would be playing on Sundays on TV before their owner was!

Mark Cuban Was in Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Ring Entourage

You’ve already seen my break down of the actual fight, but I just couldn’t resist that screen grab of Wayne Newton. Unbeknownst to me, Mark Cuban, Helio Castroneves, and Wayne Newton, were all in attendance Saturday night to support their Dancing With Stars buddy, Floyd Mayweather Jr. Not only were they there to cheer the man on, but they also formed part of Mayweather’s entourage as he entered the ring. Can you picture a more excited man than the delighted Mark Cuban, who entered bearing a few of Floyd’s championship belts?

To think, Cubes actually abandoned his Mavs for a night to be at this fight. Judging by the smug look on his face, he couldn’t have been more proud. I do have to say, Josh Howard would not be pleased.

Tony Romo and Sophia Bush Now?

Tony Romo Sophia Bush

Last we checked up on old pal Tony Romo, he was sitting pretty with country singer Carrie Underwood. Matter of fact, there was even a hint that the two had even gotten married. Looks like we might be able to squash that rumor. With the Cowboys on their bye week, Romo was spotted showing off a new lady friend. From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

During the bye week Tuesday afternoon, Tony Romo and a handful of his teammates took part in a small promotional event for a new vidego game.

Romo didn’t win his matchup, but in the end, he got the girl.

At Terence Newman’s house in Dallas, Romo played the new Xbox 360 game “Guitar Hero III” with actress Carmen Electra, who was playing the game online in Los Angeles. Romo was joined by what appears to be a new … uh … friend, actress Sophia Bush. She has starred in the TV show One Tree Hill and the 2007 movie The Hitcher.

Well, I wasn’t present to assess the situation, but based on the way the writer frames the situation, it sounds like the two are an item. And forget Carmen Electra — as long as Sophia Bush is in question, I’m throwing her the deep ball. Way to go Tony, nicely done.

Hayden Panettiere, No Longer Jail Bait

I’m not even quite sure how the whole thing went down, but starting back sometime in July, I realized Hayden Panettiere wasn’t quite 18. Of course, it didn’t take long for me to go to her IMDB page and find out her birthday, and with that, the countdown began. Well, the day is finally upon us, and on the 21st of August, in the year 2007, I will ask you all to join me in saying a nice, big, creepy old man, Happy Birthday! to Hayden. Doesn’t she deserve it?

Plenty more Hayden love after the jump.

Whatever You Do, Just Don’t Let Paris or Britney Near the Kids

Sounds pretty reasonable, right? You would think pretty much anyone who’s semi-competent would keep our youth away from those harmful beings. I mean, you wouldn’t just let your baby juggle knives and jump into swimming pools without floaties, right? I guess that’s why Brynn Cameron has reportedly put an embargo on whom Matt Leinart’s kid can be around. As SPORTSbyBROOKS directs us:

A TMZ “staffer” reports today that Cameron said at the courthouse where the arrangement was settled, “Britney and Paris aren’t allowed to be around the baby!”

The best part is TMZ following that up with this commentary – no doubt straight from a Leinart spokeshole: “Several people familiar with the former couple say Brynn has been jealous and upset because Matt refused to marry her. For her part, Brynn has questioned Matt’s commitment to his son. Matt is the one who petitioned for more custody.”

Gentlemen, the lesson to be taken away here, don’t be a fool, wrap your tool. Do that, and you’ll be free to roam with whomever you want, and you won’t be saddled by baby mama drama. Come to think of it though, this sounds like it would’ve made for a great marriage. Too bad things didn’t work out.

Baron Davis + Teri Hatcher = Lovely

One’s a desperate housewife, one’s a desperate basketball player. They’re a perfect match wouldn’t you say? Hey, if the rumors are true, then I’m all for it. So how in the eff did it happen?

Tony [Parker]… introduced the brunette star to a fellow NBA guard, the Golden State Warriors’ Baron Davis, 28, at the newlyweds’ reception on July 7. And after that, Stephen Kay back home seemed to be miles from the actress’ mind!

“Baron and Teri really hit it off,” said a friend of the TV beauty. “They talked and danced all night and had a great time. They couldn’t seem to get enough of each other!”…

On July 24 [Teri and Baron] were spotted together again at the Hollywood eatery Pace, where they sat on the same side of a four-person table, “looking like a couple of love-struck teenagers!”

Honestly, I’m not a fan of either of them, so it works perfectly in my mind. Here’s one thing though, didn’t know Baron Davis was friends with T. Parker. And here’s another, I was really just looking for an excuse to share with you the information that I saw Nicole Sheridan in a soft core movie the other night. I got really excited until I realized Nicollette Sheridan was the Desperate Housewife. That just bummed me out.
