Jessica Simpson tries to be a ‘housewife’, is home for the holidays


Apparently, the Simpson family compound is in Waco, Texas. I hate myself for knowing that, and for being able to vaguely recall an episode of “The Newlyweds” when Jessica Simpson and then-husband Nick Lachey celebrated Christmas in Texas. Well, as it turns out, the Waco compound will be the site of another glorious Simpson family gathering, with Jessica, Tony Romo, Ashlee and Pete Wentz all expected to show up.

E! News Online is among several celebrity sites reporting that Simpson sisters Jessica and Ashlee and their significant others — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and husband Pete Wentz, respectively — plan to celebrate Christmas in Waco at their grandparents’ house.

E! News sez: “This Christmas is a big deal, and the whole family wants to be together for baby Bronx’s first Christmas,” a Simpson family friend tells us.” Bronx Mowgli is the baby boy born to Ashlee and Pete on Nov. 20.

I’m sure it will be a nice family gathering and everyone’s probably really excited to spend more time with the new baby. But surely you aren’t foolish enough to think that Jessica could just let that news slip by without over-sharing about her Christmas plans (and coincidentally stealing Ashlee’s moment)? Jessica is pulling out all the stops to get Tony Romo… including trying her hand at baking Tony’s favorite desserts.

Forget going out on the town and partying all night in Hollywood, Jessica Simpson is going a very different route from other celebrity ladies these days: She’s skipping the club and heading straight for the kitchen!

“Believe it or not, I like to bake pies,” she tells Pop Tarts of her life at home right now. “Tony [Romo]‘s favorite is pumpkin pie and I haven’t mastered that yet. Maybe I’m more of a baker; I like to make cakes, more fattening. I make a good carrot cake.”

Besides fattening up her NFL quarterback boyfriend, Jess says she’s dedicated to making sure his holiday season is merry and bright.

“My personality is now more stay-at-home; right now I’m doing the Christmas tree and everything. I’m in Dallas and its fun, Tony hasn’t had Christmas in 7 years because they have football every Christmas and he can’t go home,” she says. “So I’m bringing Christmas to him this year and it’s been fun. I’ve been out ornament shopping and all kinds of stuff, so that’s more of who I am.”

Ew, carrot cake. I totally don’t get carrot cake. Cake is supposed to made from good stuff like butter, vanilla, flour, chocolate. Not carrots. But back to The World Revolving Around Jessica, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I think Tony really loves her. If he wanted out, he would have gotten out a long time ago. But I’ll add that Tony *probably* doesn’t love her for cooking.

    JB, carrot cake is good! haven’t you noticed carrots are sweet? you can also make zucchini bread and it is sweet too! If you add sugar to these two the cake and breads come out sweet, and tasting like how cakes normally taste? also, i think i like the natural flavor better than most cakes…

  2. Iris says:

    ..and Jessica Simpson is newsworthy how?

  3. Annie says:

    After watching Newlyweds (I know I know, many a brain cell was washed away….I could’ve been a cardiovascular specialist..but alas, that is not the case now.)

    Ahem, as I was saying…after seeing that, and how she COULDN’T cook for shit…I’m gonna say…I don’t buy that she bakes.

    I imagine her burning water.

  4. Buttercup says:

    That is one butt fugly dress. *shudder*

  5. boomchakaboom says:

    I love that she says cooking or whatever is her “personality right now.” I guess singing didn’t exactly pan out nor did actually having a personality already.

    So J.Simpson is like tofu – flavorless alone but sponge-like in absorbing the flavor of other ingredients. That’s about what I figured.

  6. Hellary says:

    Jessica is home for the holidays, just like the overrated Dallas Cowboys are. America’s Team…On Paper, at least.

  7. Baholicious says:

    Loooooove carrot cake with cream cheese icing…carrot muffins are likewise scrumptious.

  8. Codzilla says:

    I’d like carrot cake a lot more if it didn’t have big chunks of fruit/nuts mixed in. But the cream cheese icing, alone, is worth picking all that other shit out.

    boom: My thoughts, exactly. Also, Jessica’s face looks even more vacant than Britney’s, which I didn’t think was possible until I clicked on this story.

  9. boomchakaboom says:

    Codzilla: Britney is a deep well compared to the little trough that is J.Simp., who I just want to throw darts at.

    I don’t know Tony Romo but surely he’s got more going for him than to have to sink to J.Simp. Don’t NFL quarterbacks usually have a large pool of women to fish from?

  10. Shea says:

    This doesn’t even make sense. She says two different things within one sentence. First she can bake pies, then she can’t and is maybe more into cakes. My guess is she doesn’t do either. Oh and just because he plays football doesn’t mean the guy cannot celebrate Christmas. I read that his family has come to him in years past soooo, she is a tad confused. Per usual.

  11. cc says:

    Amusingly enough, I read “But back to The World Revolving Around Jessica” as “But back to The World Revolting Around Jessica”

    I am tired, but still thought it was funny. :P

  12. Becky Boo says:

    Seriously, this b*tch needs to just drop off the face of the earth. She can’t sing, she can’t act, and she can’t cook! Tony Romo is only with her because she puts out and has big breasts! Ugh, she totally annoys me! And i agree with boomchakaboom. Of ALL the women Tony has his pick from, he chose that brainless whore?!?! Come on Tony! At least take the Tom Brady route and score yourself a smoking hot Victoria Secret supermodel! On her best day, Jessica Simpson will never be half as pretty as Gisele is on her worst day!

  13. Lori says:

    She is a beautiful (if somewhat seemingly somewhat air-headed) girl and I don’t understand why people trash her. At least she isn’t slutty and trashy like most of her celebrity peers. She seems genuine and sweet.

  14. Carrie says:

    She clearly doesn’t understand the meaning of the word “personality”. Thick as _________ (fill in your own word)

  15. rachel says:

    I am a die hard cowboys fan, that has turned ionto a huge TONY ROMO fan and I am saying this for the good of Tony and the Cowboys Jessica really needs to let him be a football player right now its obvious that hes been beat up pretty bad lately and he needs some good TLC not some cooking she made. I’ll go bake for him since i am a great baker, I make all the christmas goodies for my family and now that i know pumpkin pie is his favorite im on my way to winning Tony over!!! here i come Tony. we can go back to WI and celebrate with some real snow!!

  16. jessica says:

    seems she wants to ape her sis ashlee and follow the family way soon. seems tony has slot of hard work at his hands for now :)

  17. isabella says:

    she is pretty and thats all she has going for her. she is not talented at all she cant sing/act/dance…she tried to hard to copy britney in her day and now she wants to copy carrie…jess cant dance like brit and jess cant sing like carrie she should stay home and bake because she doesnt have what it takes to compete against the talented ones…i think she just is famous for a pretty face and big boobs take that away and she would be forgotten…no one respects her in the bussiness industry she’s a has been…and her peers and public think shes a joke…

  18. colleen says:
