Jessica Simpson Bangs Big Hair, Shows Hot Bod & Talks Engagement Shock
Even with her legs on full view with a deep neckline up top, perhaps the most revealing bits are in the details. The mag runs down Jessica’s success as a designer — doing roughly the same volume in sales as Michael Kors — and how her fiancé Eric Johnson popped the question.
“It was a complete shock. A beautiful shock. It felt great for somebody to be on his knee, and I had to sit on that knee because I was so excited and overwhelmed I couldn’t even stand. Knowing that I had his knee to sit on in that moment was very magical. The way I always wanted it to be. I think I have a lot of stuff to write now. Not that I’m using him as a muse, but it makes me feel very open to share.”
It seems her man is adding a calming influence to Jessica’s life as well. Eric has introduced her to a daily writing practice they now both follow to record their thoughts each morning.
“I just let it flow. My fiancé taught me that. He’ll get up in the morning and just write, so nothing blocks his emotional life. It doesn’t even have to be in sentence form; he just gets everything out, and that way he can function without getting in the way of himself, without being aggressive or judgmental. We do that together. Sometimes he takes that hour just reading, we’ll get out of bed and just read aloud to each other. He has so many books. Like, just books and books and books and books.”
The new issue of New York magazine is on stands now.
