Jessica Simpson “Extremely Happy” For Nick Lachey

By: / November 11, 2010

Despite reports to the contrary, Jessica Simpson insists she isn’t upset over ex-husband Nick Lachey’s new engagement to longtime lady love Vanessa Minnillo.

“I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. Our relationship was over a really long time ago so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa,” Jess said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Thursday. “I wish them nothing but the best.”

Fans of Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica will recall the couple’s fairytale 2002 wedding and subsequent 2005 divorce. Even as Nick connected with Vanessa and Jessica dated famous dudes like John Mayer and Tony Romo, the tabloids persisted with reports that Jessica and Nick weren’t over each other.

Jessica denied all that to Seacrest, saying: “I am extremely extremely happy for him.”

“I don’t know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying I was saddened,” Jessica said. “I was just in complete shock.”

Jessica is so over Nick, she’s even spending the holidays with new beau Eric Johnson, telling Seacrest that Johnson’s “family be with us on the float at the Macy’s Day parade.”
