Is Jessica Simpson Eloping with Eric Johnson?
Following news that Reese Witherspoon said her “I dos” to number two Jim Toth this weekend, Simpson says she’s thinking of having a shot-gun wedding. “We might elope if it gets to that point,” Simpson told Women’s Wear Daily of her upcoming nuptials to former NFL pro Eric Johnson.
This would be Johnson and Simpson’s second marriage, Nick Lachey being Simpson’s first husband. “No date has been set yet. We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time,” she explained. “I will be part of designing my own wedding gown.”
As for the rumors that the triple threat entertainer (fashion, movies, music) will be joining American Idol alum Simon Cowell at the X-Factor judges’ table in the fall, Simpson admitted, “They have definitely talked to me about X Factor. … I think it would be a lot of fun. It’s definitely my life. To be a mentor for up-and-coming artists is right up my alley. I would have loved to have a mentor. I love watching people’s dreams come true.”
