Ashlee Simpson and Eric Johnson were spotted out together in NYC yesterday afternoon. Jessica wasn't on hand, but she did make a stylish appearance at LAX on her way out of town earlier this week. Jessica and Ashlee might both be in the Big Apple to get started working on their new Jessica Simpson Collection for teens, which they announced on Wednesday. The news of their collaboration comes after the sisters were seen dining out last week with mom Tina, who is also closely involved in Jessica's designing duties. Eric, meanwhile, is showing his support now that he's home from a trip to Scotland, where he played golf with his future father-in-law, Joe. It looks like Eric's fitting right into the Simpson family as he and Jessica prepare to make it official with their upcoming wedding.
