At this point, Jessica Simpson’s career is a body wrapped in a tarp that just got found on the bank of a river, but at least her love life is going well.
Sources tell TMZ Jessica is dating ex San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson. He last played for the New Orleans Saints back in 2008. Johnson split from his wife earlier this year, filing for divorce in February. Simpson — whose show, “The Price of Beauty,” returns to VH1 in 2011 — began dating Johnson in May. A source tells us they are “very happy.”
As much as I hate the Kardashians, Kim’s last boyfriend just won a Super Bowl and her new boyfriend ( wide receiver Miles Austin) spends Sundays trying to catch overthrown balls with the Dallas Cowboys. Her sister, Grape Ape, is married to a 2010 NBA Champion. On the other hand, Jessica Simpson is dating an ex-tight end who averaged 9.1 yards a game and only scored 9 TD’s in seven years. Mostly because when he stepped on the field he turned into Mr. Glass. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but maybe when he opens his car dealership, Jessica can add the commercial to her IMDB profile. Brightside!
