Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson is engaged to Eric Johnson, her boyfriend of about seven months. The news came just on the heels of Nick Lachey's engagement to Vanessa Minnillo, which I think is just Jessica trying to steal Vanessa's thunder. Once it was out that Nick was engaged, that poor Eric guy must have felt the weight of the world...and of Jessica's ass...on his chest. He proposed to her on Nov. 11 (11/11), which is a "special date" for the couple, according to a source. Since they were introduced to each other and started dating just this past May, I'd like to see how Jessica convinced this guy that Nov. 11 was somehow significant to their relationship. She may be smarter than we are all giving her credit for. It's also being rumored that he proposed to her at 11:11. In an interesting twist, the wedding itself will happen on the 12th of never.
