They were like, "Thank you for wearing your Daisy Dukes."GLAMOUR: Doesn't it feel glamorous to walk out onstage in front of cheering troops, with your Dukes and blond hair? GLAMOUR: Speaking of glamorous things, I heard you were a panelist for 's "50 Most Glamorous" list. JESSICA SIMPSON: Cate Blanchett--it's the way she carries herself. And him not playing the way he would've hoped and all of a sudden I'm to blame. JESSICA SIMPSON: Because everybody takes everything out on me! I don't understand why they think that I would be a distraction to Tony. I grew up watching Troy Aikman and all of the quarterbacks, Roger Staubach.... " His picture came up and I'm like, He's really cute. I didn't meet him for a year and a half after that. JESSICA SIMPSON: One of my best friends played on a basketball team with Tony. Then Tony e-mailed my dad, "Cute date," when we were at the Country Music Awards [last November], because we were sitting next to each other in the audience and I guess we made a camera shot. Jessica Simpson didn't lose herself along the way. GLAMOUR: Back to the tabloids: People still talk about that time you showed up at Tony's game wearing the pink Cowboys jersey and he played terribly. JESSICA SIMPSON: I don't know--other than me wearing my man's jersey and cheering him on. I can't believe I talk like that about sports! JESSICA SIMPSON: There are a lot of people in my past who might faint to hear me talk like that. They said his celebrity dream crush was Jessica Simpson. JESSICA SIMPSON: My family was like, "Did you just hear that? I wrote a song for him called "Back in My Old Boots." I feel like I'm walking back in my old boots. I thought that I had to be deeper, more profound and more artsy.
Jessica is clearly delighted.) It's obvious that the down-home comforts of Dallas are doing her right: Simpson is in control, adorable and ready to move on.
Fortified by a glass of chardonnay, she sets the record straight on coping with the tabloids, her acting career and, of course, her new, happy life with Romo.
And it totally ruined the Barbie and Ken-themed party Jessica had planned. Simpson couldn’t keep up with Romo’s slutting around like a pseud-star. The entire relationship, much like Romo’s career, started off great but faded quickly. Otherwise people like Tony Romo will hit-it and quit-it. Tired of being sacked again and again, Romo took it upon himself to avoid it this time. Guess the present he wanted to give most was himself out of the relationship.
Although because Romo is a eunuch like Ken, it might have been apropos to continue with the party anyway. Simpson needed to add relationships to her résumé of failures, which already includes movies and music (you know, because you don’t own her songs and don’t watch her movies, although I’m waiting with bated breath for that Steve Guttenberg project). Tony Romo finally came to his senses after realizing Simpson was deficient in common sense, vapid, obsessive with drugs and booze, and cost too much. Though he still intends to spend next year on the Injured Reserve with a “Broken Heart”. It was getting weird as Romo began to be known as the pretty one.
"It feels like forever," she says about the months they've been together.
" He goes, "Maybe." I'm like, "Try it again." I was taken aback by someone wanting to kiss me in public. GLAMOUR: What's different about Jessica Simpson two years ago to today? If these movies are flops, why would I still make them? GLAMOUR: I read Page Six [in the ] every day, and there is that daily Jessica Simpson item. Right when we see each other, we'll lock eyes and then hang up." So that's what we did. I was like, "Fine, I will."GLAMOUR: Jessica Simpson! I think that I've persevered through a lot of talk. MSNBC [online] did this whole thing on me and how I flew private and my hair and makeup cost ,000, and made it seem like I charged a fee to come! JESSICA SIMPSON: I stayed in the barracks, wore flip-flops in the shower--I roughed it like a soldier. So [my family] leaves [for dinner], and Tony and I were just sitting there. JESSICA SIMPSON: And he told me then, "[Let's] just stay on the phone. There's too much competition [with a musician]. GLAMOUR: You've learned more about sports since you've been with Tony? [Tony and I] were photographed the other night at a [Dallas] Mavericks game. We played the Lakers, who were the number-two seed at the time. I was going through my divorce and--Tony would die if I told you this--but [on television there was a story] about him.
