Former 49er Eric Johnson Is the New Mr. Jessica Simpson

Former 49ers tight end Eric Johnson may have gone to Yale, but it didn’t take an Ivy League education to know that marrying Jessica Simpson was a good idea. As SI Hot Clicks pointed out, the couple got engaged over the weekend. The two met through friends and began dating in May, so you can tell they’ve moved quickly.

Johnson played four seasons with the Niners and one with the Saints, his final NFL stop in 2007. He amassed 240 catches for 2,178 yards and nine touchdowns in his career. Between his relationship with Simpson and Chargers long snapper David Binn’s relationship with Pamela Anderson, we’ve learned you don’t necessarily have to be a star to land a lovely lady.

Whether or not the engagement to Johnson is a response to ex-husband Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minnillo the same week is not a concern for us. Neither is the size of the enormous engagement ring that sent the internet in a tizzy. What matters is that Simpson has officially moved on from Tony Romo and that Eric Johnson now joins the illustrious group of athlete-celebrity couples. Congrats to the couple. You give em longer than 24 months?

Jessica Simpson/Tony Romo Back on?

All those football fans who think they have it made, please step forward. Not so fast, Cowboy fan! That’s right, I know you were all celebrating after hearing the news that the two had called it quits. Even with that news, Tony still kept his promise to Chestica and accompanied her to sister Ashlee’s wedding recently. And now the reports are saying Romo’s open to getting back with Chestica, so long as her papa Joe is punted out of the picture:

Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are back ”on,” but a college pal of the Dallas Cowboys quarterback tells me it’s Romo who’s calling all the plays.

My source says Romo has told Jessica their renewed relationship is ”a trial thing,” dependent on Daddy Joe ”leaving them alone” and stifling his tendency to tell Romo how to run his life, career and endorsement deals.

On again, off again, on again, off again. This saga is almost as bad as T.O. and the pill overdose. Almost. Either way, I still say Romo should just get back with Sophia Bush if he’s tired of Jessica’s dad. Sophia’s so hot I sat through John Tucker Must Die. Twice. And enjoyed it.

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 Strahan Digs Jessica Simpson

This whole Tony Romo/Chestica Simpson thing has gotten completely out of hand. First you had T.O. dogging Romo saying Simpson was a distraction. Then you had Tom Brady supposedly give Romo advice not to have his chick show up at games. Then with the Cowboys limping into the playoffs and sitting on a bye week ready to face the Giants, there was heavy speculation as to whether or not Simpson would show up at the playoff game. Things got so out of hand that you could bet on the likelihood of Chestica showing up at the game. Well, the million dollar question finally was answered, and none other than Michael Strahan was there to defend Romo:

“Heck, if Jessica Simpson wanted to date me, I may give her a shot,” said the recently divorced Strahan.

Strahan said he couldn’t blame Romo for the trip.

“If he wanted to sit in Dallas, they would have found some fault in that because he would have been with her if they had pictures of them in Dallas,” Strahan said. “So for them to go to Cabo or wherever they went, good for them. They deserve that time off.”

“I think anybody who thinks that because he took a few days with his girlfriend that he is going to come back and not play well or he is not going to be prepared if anything it probably stokes his fire to play even better.”

I completely agree with Strahan here. Jason Witten goes to Mexico, but it’s a tree in the forest. Tony Romo goes to Mexico, and all of a sudden the world is coming to an end. Please. And who’s to say Romo wasn’t out having his fun during the regular season and still tearing up the league? Seemed like his 36TDs and over 4,000 yards passing would suggest he can perform despite partying it up. And come on, like Strahan says, if Chestica wanted to date you, wouldn’t you give her a shot? Exactly. Must I remind you of this?

Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson Again

Wow Tony, it’s getting tough to keep up with you. Last year there were rumors of you dating Jessica Simpson, but you put those to rest. Next it was Carrie Underwood. Most recently, it was hottie Sophia Bush. Then there was the whole Britney Spears incident. And now back with Chestica? At least that’s what In Touch Weekly is saying:

It was the day after Thanksgiving but Jessica Simpson’s family was more than happy to hold off their dinner so she could return home with her new boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

The couple showed up at Jessica’s grandparents new home in Waco, Texas, on November 23 (a day late, since Tony had a game to play on Thanksgiving) and received a “heroe’s” welcome from Joe and Tina Simpson and Jessica’s grandparents, according to an onlooker. While Tony has denied reports that he and Jessica are dating, insiders say the pair are definitely involved and they’re getting more serious.

Tony, you’re quickly establishing yourself as the Derek Jeter of the NFL. But hey man, whatever works, you know? Brady’s nailing a super model and setting records, Romo’s kicking ass and working Jessica. Hmm, maybe that’s just what Eli is missing

UPDATE: Romo and Simpson are officially dating and were even photographed on vacation together in Mexico.

Jessica Simpson Is Hot

But of course you already knew that. Anywhoo, I was watching Dukes of Hazzard last night, and man, she’s enough to keep me hooked to the screen for two hours. This is the best video I can find — probably about the best 45 seconds you’ll spend all day (work safe).

I could watch it over…and over…and over…and over…and over…and over…

You get the point.
