We’ve talked about it, dreamt about it, speculated about it and waited with bated breath, and now it’s finally happened: Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are married! They tied the knot yesterday in California.
From US Weekly:
The couple said “I do” at the lavish San Ysidro Ranch.
Simpson, 33, and the former NFL player, 34, were feted by their closest family and friends, including the singer’s parents Joe and Tina Simpson, sister Ashlee Simpson and fiance Evan Ross, CaCee Cobb and husband Donald Faison, and Jessica Alba and beau Cash Warren. Ashlee and Cobb were bridesmaids for the special occasion. The couple’s daughter Maxwell, 2, and son Ace, 13, months, also played special roles.
During the ceremony, an instrumental version of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” was played, according to an insider. At one point, cheers and claps erupted from the covered tent, which were decorated with stunning chandeliers.
Simpson and Johnson made it a fun-filled weekend for their guests, as they kicked back and relaxed with a good old fashioned BBQ to celebrate the Fourth of July a day earlier. Guests danced, sang karaoke, and played outdoor activities like corn hole, horseshoes and croquet. “They all seemed to be having a really good time!” an insider told Us.
Aw, it sounds really sweet. I can’t help it – I have a soft spot for Jess and think she seems really down-to-earth and genuine and totally precious. I don’t know if that’s a genuine feeling about her or latent patronization from the whole “chicken of the sea” incident so many years ago, but I’m just embracing it. Congrats to the happy couple!

Jessica Simpson is back on top these days, it seems. She’s looking and feeling good, she’s got endorsements left and right, she’s about to get married to the father of her two adorable kids and now she’s releasing her own fragrance. Jessica Simpson Signature is hitting store shelves in August, but would you actually wear it? Here’s a bit more about it (via E! Online):
“Jessica Simpson Signature opens to whimsical notes of citrus, blending hints of clementine, nectarine, pomegranate and apricot. The heart of the fragrance is a romantic floral bouquet of frangipani, night blooming jasmine, orange flower and tiger lily. Warm, satisfying dry notes of white chocolate vanilla bean accord, sandalwood, tonka bean and drift wood round out the natural beauty of this harmonious signature scent,” reads a statement about the Jessica Simpson Fragrance Collection, whose products retail from $18 to $65.
It comes in a teardrop-shaped bottle with a gold feather-like cap, which Jessica herself says represents “spiritual evolution, truth and lightness”. Well, okay.
I know celebs have come out with some okay fragrances – Jennifer Aniston’s smelled pretty good, and I still know a few people who swear by Britney Spears’ first one. However, I just can’t gel with the idea of heading to my local Rite-Aid to ask the part-time cashier to open the plastic cabinet to hand me a bottle of Jessica Simpson’s perfume.
Would you wear it – or at least consider wearing it?

Jessica Simpson has been stalling on her wedding to fiancé Eric Johnson for years now. They got engaged back in 2010 and since then have had two babies, Jessica got ~chic & sleek~ again and life went on. They did finally set a wedding day – July 4th – but they hadn’t decided where this wedding was actually going to be held… UNTIL NOW.
From Radar Online:
The 33-year-old singer-turned-fashion designer will wed fiancé Eric Johnson, 34, in Santa Barbara, Calif., according to Us Weekly. The nuptials reportedly will take place at the Bacara Resort and Spa.
The resort has seen a few celebrity weddings in its day, with Fergie and Josh Duhamel renewing their vows at the beachside property in 2010. Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli also said their “I Dos” at the Spanish-styled hotel.
But Simpson could change her mind at the last minute, according to the weekly.
“Jess keeps going back and forth on locales,” an insider told Us Weekly.
That sounds nice! Nothing too overly flashy (looking at you, Kimye) and I’m sure it’ll be a nice ceremony for them.

Look, just because Jessica Simpson is (society’s definition of) skinny again doesn’t mean homegirl still doesn’t want to eat – especially when she’s had too much to drink. She was out this weekend in Los Angeles and apparently got a little drunky and funky, and unfortunately it was caught on camera.
TMZ filmed Jessica taking a little stumble on her way to Jack-in-the-Box for some burgers and fries. I can’t help but enjoy a little JSimps – she’s harmless enough and just seems so dozy (and I mean that in the least offensive way possible).

Jessica Simpson‘s fluctuating weight has been a subject of media scrutiny for years – and in fact, it seems to be the only thing keeping her relevant when it comes to the public eye whatsoever. It’s a shame, really, and she seems genuinely sweet (if not the smartest chicken in the sea). But now we can all stop panicking, because she’s skinny again! AND she’s trying to get you to use Clear Blue pregnancy tests… something she probably has some personal experience with, given that she has two little ones of her own.
The above photo popped up on Jessica’s Instagram page this week, and was captioned with “If I’m in a bathing suit I should pose proudly” – right on! I’m not sure I understand why she’s got the golf club, but hey, let’s just go with it. She looks great and obviously feels great, so good for her.
She also started posting her sponsored stuff for Clear Blue on her Twitter page earlier this month, encouraging women to enter some competition the company is throwing to win $5,000. Kendra Wilkinson and Melissa Rycroft have done the same for Clear Blue in the past, so who knows if this was a one-time thing or an ongoing relationship. Given that Jessica is already affiliated with Weight Watchers, she must be racking up some serious dough on endorsement deals!

Weird. Here, let’s have a palette cleanser of another bathing suit pic, shall we?

Jessica Simpson’s love of getting it on with fiancé Eric Johnson led to her having two children with him pretty close together. Maxwell Drew is the little girl’s name and Ace Knute (SMH) is the new little boy. They’re a cute family, right? I mean, Maxwell’s pretty perfect. Ace just looks like a baby at the moment – but a cute baby.
Here’s the important question, though: Just HOW cute are these kids? You decide.
