Do you hear that? That’s the sound of Jessica Simpson Tofurky-flavored WAIL. Yet another one of Jessica’s exes has gotten engaged! Hahahahaha. This time the ex is Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboy who dumped Jessica on her birthday last year, after dating for less than two years. Joe Simpson had tried to pressure Tony into marrying Jessica… which is one of the big (alleged) reasons Tony ended up dumping Jessica. Plus, you know, she was a trainwreck in that relationship, as she is most of the time. Anyway, Tony got engaged to basically the only girl he seriously dated after Jessica, Chace Crawford’s little sister Candice. Candice works as a television reporter in Texas. She’s also very blonde and pretty, and there are some similarities, looks-wise, between Candice and Jessica. WAIL.
Jessica Simpson’s ex Tony Romo got engaged to girlfriend Candice Crawford on Thursday night.
The quarterback, 30, proposed to Crawford at Five Sixty in Dallas, according to KDAF TV, for whom Crawford works as a reporter.
The two were celebrating Crawford’s 24th birthday when she said yes. The couple have been going out officially since September 2009, though they were seen together a few months before that.
Crawford is also a former beauty queen, having won the Miss Missouri USA crown in 2008 and competed in the Miss USA pageant. She is also the sister of ‘Gossip Girl’ star Chase Crawford.
Romo was previously linked to singer Carrie Underwood as well as Jessica Simpson for two years. Simpson famously told PEOPLE Romo had broken up with her on July 9, 2009, the night before her 29th birthday.
Since this is only interesting within the context of gossiping about Jessica Simpson, let’s talk about that. Jessica has had a couple of awkward run-ins with Tony and Candice before, and she behaved slightly better than she did when she ran into Nick Lachey. Does Jessica view Tony as the one who got away? It was pretty clear that she wanted to marry Tony, in my opinion. So why didn’t he want to get married… to her? He obviously did want a deeper commitment… just not to Jessica. I wonder if she just pulled the bag of Doritos under the covers this morning.
Oh, and I will laugh and laugh if John Mayer announces his engagement next. That would be AMAZING.
