Jessica Announces Her Engagement One Week After Nick — Just a Coincidence, or Something's Up?

Jessica Announces Her Engagement One Week After Nick — Just a Coincidence, or Something's Up?

Jessica Simpson shared the happy news that she's marrying boyfriend Eric Johnson over the weekend, even giving a first glimpse of her ruby and diamond ring. Her family is overjoyed, however, others are wondering why Jess chose to make her statement one week after her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, announced his plans to wed to Vanessa Minnillo. Nick just weighed in on Jess's surprise, saying, "I will say the same thing I always say: I wish her the very best." Jessica and Eric apparently picked their engagement date for a special reason, but we're wondering what you make of the closely timed developments. So, tell us — do you think Nick and Jessica coincidentally made similar announcements, or is there something up on her end?

she needs to brush her effin teeth...the close up showed her plaque....ILL, come on...congrats to Nick & Vanessa...Jessica is a lame...adding her to the "old ladies who will live in a shoe" someday - so far I have: Paris - b/c her shoes are literally large enough to take shelter in and she's a walking virus Kim Kard-whatever - because she's too insecure and lame to keep a man's interest...T&A are fun the first three bangs, then it gets old..and finally: Jessica, because she's desperate enough to buy a high school graduation ring for herself...then beg her dad to beg her freshly divorced bf to marry her so she won't jump off a building

i feel like people are always going to talk about them together like brad and jen. it's not fair to them but that's life right? i feel like it was just a coincidence and that's that. i'm happy for all of them and hopefully things will work out for both couples this time around.

Coincidence. Not everything is a big deal. 6 months? Oh well, at least they're in love. It seems like Nick and whats her face fell out of love years ago.

"Joe Simpson and her PR team would have been smart to wait to announce it to the public." i dont agree, this is a PR stunt, ride the coattails of nicks engagement. otherwise no one would care and notice as much when or if they had gotten engaged later. when they ran into each other at a restaurant, that garnered PR. why not use that angle again? it actually brings attention to both couples which in turn brings in $$$.

I think it's a coincidence- the odd timing of it shows she doesn't care. They're in their own love-y dove-y world.

Definitely something up. I'll bet she's pregnant.

This doesn't only apply to famous people, NO ONE should marry after a six month courtship and Yes, it's more than obvious what Jessica Simpson is doing. sad.
