On a break from recording that hit country album, Jessica Simpson was back in LA stopping off for sushi with a friend on Friday night. She wasn't, however, hopping right onto a plane again to watch her boyfriend Tony's playoff game. After Tony was eviscerated in the press for his trip to Mexico with his girlfriend (and, ahem, a few of his teammates) Jess stayed away. In the end, it didn't help because the Cowboys lost to the Giants and the announcers mentioned his vacation at least ten times for no reason. Kinda annoying. At least Jess has one friend on her side — apparently Eva Longoria can relate. She had this to say to her friend:
"When I first started dating Tony (Parker), I got the same flack, and this was so many years ago that people don't remember...If he had a bad game, it was my fault, if he got injured, it was my fault, if he had a good game, it wasn't because of me...You have to weather that for a while, and once people get over it, they kind of get used to you...Believe me, they are not thinking of us when they are on the field, particularly Tony Romo, who has 10 linemen coming at him...Do you think that he is really thinking about Jessica the moment that he is about to get sacked?"
Hopefully Jessica will be done catching flack from Cowboys' fans during the off season, because really if it was anyone other than her no one would care. Either way, I'm sure she'll be by his side soon as he nurses his wounds. Hey, methinks that Mr. Romo could use another trip to Cabo right about now.
