Wedding Bliss: Jessica Simpson Engaged?!

Sources have confirmed to UsMagazine.com that Jessica Simpson dud in fact got engaged to beau Eric Johnson on Thursday, just days after Us broke the news that her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, popped the question to Vanessa Minnillo, his love of nearly five years. Simpson and Lachey, 37, split in 2005, after three years of marriage.

On Saturday, Simpson flashed a sizable ring on her left hand during an appearance at Dillard’s at Oak Park Mall in Kansas City. Multiple sources later confirmed the pair was planning to tie the knot.

“We are excited to confirm that they are engaged,” Simpson’s rep told People.

The Texas native began dating the former NFL player in May while he was estranged from his first wife, stylist Keri Johnson; their divorce was finalized five months later.

“I met a wonderful man. Damn I’m lucky!” Simpson tweeted in September, gushing about her new relationship.

The newly engaged couple will spend Thanksgiving in New York, where Simpson is scheduled to perform during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade; Johnson‘s family will join her on the float.

“Having a boyfriend through the holidays, we’re going to see how that all splits up,” the singer told Ryan Seacrest during a KIIS-FM radio interview last week. “I can’t imagine not being with my nephew and watching him open gifts. Maybe someone gets Christmas Eve and somebody gets Christmas day.”

Though Ashlee Simpson-Wentz recently told Us that her sister “is happy, so we’re all really happy,” sources insist that most of Simpson‘s friends are concerned about Johnson‘s motives for dating the singer.

“Eric was never that successful in the NFL, but he’s always wanted the celebrity lifestyle,” a source told Us in October. “Her friends do not trust him.”

Jessica’s Engagement News Greeted With Jeers, Skepticism

If Jessica Simpson expected the Internet to erupt in a collective “mazel tov!” when she confirmed her engagement to Eric Johnson on Sunday, she probably felt a wee bit disappointed.

The goodwill that the likeable starlet, 30, has long enjoyed (except maybe for that mom jeans moment) seemed to take a nasty turn at the news that Johnson, her boyfriend of five-plus months, had slipped a non-traditional-looking gold, ruby and diamond engagement ring on her finger.

Amid a smattering of well-wishes, the online masses found a lot to gripe about over her betrothal. Chief among the complaints: That the question-popping announcement came off as — and we’re paraphrasing here — a “desperate,” “pathetic” and “tacky” case of face-saving “one-upmanship,” falling as it did just days after Simpson‘s ex-husband, Nick Lachey, proposed to Vanessa Minnillo, his girlfriend of four years.

Other factors contributing to the wave of disapproval and predictions of romantic doom included the swiftness of their engagement; the fact that Johnson finalized his divorce just last month; and that his career has been in limbo since his post-Yale stint with the NFL (he reportedly bailed on pursuing his MBA at the Wharton School of Business when he hooked up with Jessica in May).

One commenter has even coined the phrase “pulling a Jessica,” which apparently means dropping hints to your boyfriend that it’s time to make a commitment, for better or worse.

Our take? We’ve always liked Simpson and wish her nothing but happiness. Are we worried that she’s rushing into things with Johnson? Sure, but love doesn’t necessarily follow a timeline. Plenty of couples have sprinted to the altar and enjoyed a happily-ever-after (and plenty of others haven’t — we’re looking at you, Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney).

Either way, we strongly urge Jessica to get a prenup.

Also, the timing is definitely … awkward. Would it have been better from a PR standpoint for them to keep the betrothal hush-hush for a few months to get some distance from Nick and Vanessa? Almost certainly.

Simpson and Johnson‘s engagement is now irrevocably tied to Lachey and Minnillo‘s, with the dueling nuptials sure to fuel a tabloid competition: Who has the better ring? Whose dress is more elaborate? Who will star in “Newlyweds 2.0”? Who will get knocked up first (by the by, we expect the shotgun-wedding rumors to start any second now for Jess and Eric)? It’s not an ideal situation for either duo.

The proposal also comes amid talk that Jessica was “deeply saddened” by Nick‘s engagement (she insists that she couldn’t be happier for her ex, whom she split with in 2005), and that she’d taken a potshot at Minnillo during a recent run-in at a Los Angeles restaurant, supposedly sniping, “I hope Vanessa likes her clothes because I bought them for her, since Nick took all my money.”

Still, Simpson has made it clear (as is her public-gushing custom) that Johnson is everything she could want and more.

“This is just normal, thank God. He’s very, very supportive,” Simpson enthused to People mag last month of her “hottie” squeeze. “[I] couldn’t ask for a better man in my life right now.”

Speaking of men in her life, we can’t forget to mention her dad, Joe, who reportedly never warmed up to Lachey, causing tension in the MTV-chronicled marriage.

He quickly tweeted his best wishes, saying that he’s “so very happy for Jess and Eric. May they have a lifetime of joy and happiness.” No word on whether that also includes giving them some space.

In what we consider a troubling sign, Papa Joe tagged along back in July when Jess celebrated her 30th birthday with Johnson on a yacht in Capri. Paparazzi snapped him standing just a few uncomfortable feet away as his little girl smooched and straddled her beau.

“What are your thoughts about Jessica’s engagement? I think it’s a bit selfish on her man’s part (Eric Johnson), being that she probably didn’t know about it, but we really never know. Either way congrats to the couple. I wish them good luck & love.”

Smell This: Jessica Simpson “Fancy Love”

Despite her split with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Jessica Simpson is still alive and as happy as never before. May be because she is going to present her new fragrance “Fancy Love”?

Jessica and her ex-boyfriend Tony called it quits on the evening of her 29th birthday. May be its just a stupid coincidence but her new fragrance is about love solely.

Simpson said the following words about her fragrance – “Romance has never been more important to me so I wanted to celebrate that special feeling with this new fragrance.”

Flo Rida Talks About Record-Breaking Single ‘Right Round’ and Dead or Alive-sampling hit beats previous record set by Eminem, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent…

Flo Rida’s got another one! The MC jokes about people calling him a one-hit wonder, but with the start he’s gotten with his new single “Right Round,” it doesn’t seem like that’s a problem anymore. His song just beat the record set by 50 Cent, Eminem and Dr. Dre with “Crack a Bottle”“Right Round” for highest debut on the digital-single sales chart. also has the highest digital sales of any single in one week, a record previously held by Flo’s own Grammy-nominated monster, “Low.”

“It’s crazy, because people feel like you get lucky the first time you do something like that. But the second time? You know you’re blessed,” he told MTV News. “I’m humbled enough to say I’m a fan of [50 Cent, Eminem and Dr. Dre]. I’m inspired by those guys. But at the same time, at some point in time you have to do better in some categories, if not every category.”

“Right Round” samples Dead or Alive’s 1985 dance classic “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record),” which Jessica Simpson and Marilyn Manson have also covered. Flo Rida has put his own, er, spin on the song’s lyrics.

“Right Round” is about a young lady, she might be in the strip club and she’s got my head spinning round,” Rida explained. “Or any young lady that I might see walking past me that’s getting my attention. She got it going on! I’m going crazy over her. I might go to the club and make it rain … in the club on her because she got it going on.”

Flo Rida says to look for a mix of party and message records on his new LP, R.O.O.T.S. (Route of Overcoming the Struggle), which is due out on March 31. Ne-Yo and Rick Ross are among the guest stars.

Look for Flo Rida next week in Mixtape Monday. He’ll be performing and explaining records from his latest street CD, Freestyle Kronikles 3 on MTV.
