While it may look like Jessica Simpson‘s engagement to Eric Johnson was prompted by Nick Lachey proposing to Vanessa Minnillo, a source, presumably smelling of bacon and failure because it’s Jessica, has already gone on the record with People and TooFab, claiming the entire thing is just a coincidence because Eric had been planning it all along.
Okay, let me tell you what a coincidence is. A coincidence is Bill Clinton enjoying the world famous sex industry of Thailand at the same The Hangover 2 happens to be filming. That’s a coincidence. Jessica Simpson threatening to lock herself in the closet with a herd of Angus beef unless Eric Johnson marries her before Nick marries Vanessa? That’s coercion. Sure, this was Eric’s ultimate man-digger goal anyway, but why make the job more difficult by letting the sex turn into a really gross moon-bounce? That just doesn’t make any sense.
