Jessica Simpson posts photo of herself, kissing her “Yalie” Eric Johnson


Yesterday, Jessica Simpson posted the above photo on her Twitter page with the tweet, “Romance 101..getting kissed by my Yalie…me not lookin’ so smart…:) but YUM!” Yes, that’s her “Yalie” Eric Johnson. Otherwise known as Jessica’s new (PR) boyfriend. Also known as the dude who dropped out of the Wharton program just so he could stay in LA with Jessica’s Sexual Napalm, and the dude Jessica is probably already financially supporting. I didn’t realize he was a Yale graduate, but there it is:

Jessica Simpson isn’t afraid to show the world her love for new beau Eric Johnson. She posted a shot of her smooching her latest squeeze (a Yale graduate) on her Twitter page.

“Romance 101..getting kissed by my Yalie…me not lookin’ so smart…:)” she wrote. “but YUM!”

The new Us Weekly reports Johnson, 30, has pulled out of the two-year business program at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton school to remain in L.A. with the 30-year-old singer.

Even though they’ve only been together eight weeks, a source tells Us: “He doesn’t want to move to Philadelphia and leave her so soon after they got together.”

I should know by now that even though someone graduates from a good school, doesn’t mean that they actually learned anything, or that they’re actually intelligent. So, with that in mind, what’s the verdict on Jessica and her “Yalie”? Are the Wiffenpoofs going to gang up on Eric and kick his ass? Is this all some horrible Skull & Bones plot involving massive boobs and Papa Joe? What does it all mean?!?

    In the bottom photo, he looks like a very, VERY young Chevy Chase.

  2. Andrea-2 says:

    In the picture above that, he looks like a jerk. I mean, come on, she’s dragging all of that luggage and he’s just walking along…

  3. Shay says:

    So what if he is a Yale graduate. Isn’t Dubya a Yale graduate?
    I have this professor at uni, he is a Yale graduate, and the only thing he is clever at is by killing time without getting to the point in lectures. These ivy league universities tend to be more about money than brains.

  4. snappyfish says:

    @Andrea-2 well said. That was to be my point. Why is this more than likely “kept guy” not helping with or toting ALL of the luggage. When I travel with my husband I don’t touch a bag other than my purse.

    I kinda feel sorry for this girl. She is just a mess and trying so hard to be relevant. I personally had never heard of her until The Newlyweds show on MTV. They were cute. Then she thought she was a big deal and divorced her husband and now she is just an afterthought and joke.

  5. Shay says:

    Snappyfish, that’s quite spot on. He looks like he is walking away from her, or embarrassed to be with her.

  6. Laura says:

    Hmmmm, wonder if that kiss took place before or after she brushed her teeth for the week?

  7. Toe says:

    LOL @ Laura
    eeewwww. Please stop it

  8. Me1st says:

    Laura I was thinking the same thing

  9. Jackie says:

    The really sad thing is, if this was her real bf (not PR), it’s pathetic that it needs to be lived out for everyone to watch and have it shoved in our faces.

    I feel for Jessica the same way Lainey does, that I really wish she had someone in her life to tell her better. Its kinda hallowing for her to make sure everyone knows how “happy” she is. It should be for herself, not the cameras.

  10. flutters says:

    A) She really wants everybody to know she’s dating a Yalie. When is Jessica Simpson going to stop trying to live in her boyfriend’s reflected glory? Dating John Mayer didn’t make her a respected musician just because he was. Dating Tony Romo didn’t make her a respected and desired cheerleader for America’s team. Dating a Yalie doesn’t make her smart. Dear Jessica: You can only gain respect if you earn it by yourself. She’s not helping her cause with stuff like this.

    B) At least there isn’t blue icing being traded between tongues this time.

    C) This is probably Jessica’s way of trying to distract from getting beat out by JLo for the American Idol job.

    D) Will she ever learn? It’s just sad.

  11. texasmom says:

    She sure doesn’t look into that kiss.

  12. Missfit says:

    I wonder if she questions tuna to him and what he’d say since he’s so “super smart” Yalie dude. lol Oh man, everyone makes good points. That top pic, where they are kissing, she has a really pretty face, too bad her dresses are ugly.

  13. rkintn says:

    That’s the grossest picture ever! What a couple of morons.

  14. Bunny says:

    Yeah, i thought it looked gross.

  15. malachais says:

    I dunno who’s worse, the “Yalie” dating a famewhore, or the famewhore dating a “Yalie” famewhore. Neither one actually needs this publicity. Famewhore has a lucrative clothing/accessory line… and …he has his smarts…but then they’re both famewhores so they were made for each other.

    I think individuals who become celebrities are destined for fame but are doomed with consistently bad relationships. I guess its one or the other, for the most part.

  16. d says:

    Oh, Jessica.

  17. Jessica says:

    Dear Jessica: how old are you exactly? 15 or 30? this is something an immature High School girl would do, not a pathetic 30 year old GROWN woman.

    I’m still waiting for the infamous annual ” I’ve found the Love of my Life” People cover.

    She morphs into whatever she thinks will make her current flame happy.

    I’m sure she’ll say that “Eric made me the woman I am today, he completes me, he’s my soulmate” blah blah blah.

    she did the same thing with Nick, Tony and John. This is just a cycle repeating itself.

  18. bellaluna says:

    She is so pathetic; I don’t mean it in a cruel way, but (to me) she just embodies the very definition of the word. If anyone ever invents a “confidence” implant, she should be one of the test subjects.

    I find this whole need to live “in your face” very unnecessary and humiliating for those who participate in it, “famous” or not.

  19. Dingles says:

    She reminds me of those young military girlfriends who date a service member for three months then suddenly their facebook has a million pics of them with “their soldier” with those handwritten captions that say annoying crap like “REAL love is trading your pearls for his dog tags!!!”

    Defining yourself by the man you’re with is never a good plan.

  20. Sans says:

    Flutters, thanks for writing point A)
    She tries to live in the males she dates glory. Doesn’t work. Someone isn’t going to give you a gig cause your boyfriend does this or that. She dumped Nick before they even got married. I guess she wasn’t Ga Ga over him, but couldn’t find anyone better and ‘settled’. Than when she thought she could do ‘better’ she divorced him. Only thing she could do was sale her relationships for attention, now no one of status wants her. Shes been passed around. Dealing with her brings on a bunch of noise. She has to whore her relationships out on twitter.
    She wants to be a star, but stars work at their art. She half asses everything, she doesn’t get you have to put in work. Anyway I’ve had fun laughing at her and Jennifer Aniston, but now it’s old. Get out of the limelight and get a real life.

  21. Sans says:

    Doesn’t the people around her tell her people call her desperate.

  22. lisa says:

    I hate that celebrities use Twitter. It makes it uncool to me for some reason.

  23. Eden says:

    Well said on your first point!!
    I could not agree more if I wrote it myself.

    At a certain age I stopped giving a shit where and if someone went to literally means nothing in terms of intelligence and well rounded-ness.

    Some of the most boring, self satisfied people I have met in my life are the ones who are most impressed with their own college education and continue into adulthood to hold it out like a bumper sticker on their chest.

    AND..I went to a very good, private expensive college so I’m not being a bitter bitch.

    Jess will find her big love someday…thank god my massive dating history and “He is totally the ONE” crap wasn’t public. Ugh.

  24. Persistent Cat says:

    Seriously, she’s 30 and she’s posting that crap. And how is that “Romance 101?” And “yum?” Really?

    Why does she always buy the ugliest Louis Vuittons?

    I can’t think of a proper way to say this but I really think she’s…. is learning disabled the right term?

    Bellaluna is right, she’s the very definition of pathetic. And Dingles, that made me laugh but you’re dead on.

  25. lucy2 says:

    Common sense 101…your public over-sharing and neediness have ruined many a past relationship…try not doing the exact shame thing yet again.

    I just want to knock her and Jennifer Love Hewitt’s heads together. Always so desperate, and never learning.

  26. LolaBella says:

    She’s desperate and pathetic.

    She’s paying him to be with her. She wants the world to see her as a woman in love with an All American guy (cheerleader/jock). He gets his profile raised by all the publicity of being with her.

    This PR deal with Simpleton will probably land him a lucrative NFL analyst gig with ESPN.

    She gets publicity for her ridiculous show on VH1.

    Seems everyone is a famewhore these days.

  27. BethL says:

    Nothing says “I’m not desperate and pathetic” like posting a photo of yourself kissing your boyfriend. I don’t if they are rumors or true but didn’t several boyfriends dump her because she was too klingy and PDA? I know she’s not the brightest but you would think she would get the message by now.

  28. Kevin says:

    Of course he’s from Yale, note his NFL career.

  29. kelbear says:

    He probably like the thought of being with her more than he actually likes being with her.

  30. Sans says:

    Hey leave JLH out of this!

  31. J says:

    I believe that everyone has done a great job of expressing a collective:
    “Bitch, what is wrong with you!”

    The added bonus for me is that she is looking at the camera!!!! So DESPERATE! I can see how a picture of both of them sharing a kiss, taken from a further distance, ‘maybe’ cute – but this is awful! It’s like she said “Let me get this” in the middle of the kiss and keeps her eyes open to make sure the whole world sees her doing it!

    And nothing says more pathetic, when her younger sister, actually turned out to be more respectable with a family and keeping her profile in check!

  32. Kate says:

    Good for her and all, though she always seems exceptionally desperate to me. She is trying to prove something to the world, but is incredibly transparent in her act.

    One note, however: I graduated from Dartmouth, and there are idiots at Ivy’s as surely as there are idiots at other colleges. Going to an Ivy is no definitive indication of intelligence.

  33. poof says:

    I just graduated from Yale Medical School on a full scholarship. A lot of people at yale are just hard workers and not into this publicity thing like this guy. Most of us just do things in the background.

  34. Sans says:

    People know it doesn’t matter what college you went to or if you went to college , a fame go is a fame ho. Education doesn’t determine that. Good job on your education. My education has not only given me the opportunity to have a great career, but my ticket to move to NYC. I love college.

  35. JustSaying says:

    I wonder if he would have dropped his business school plans if she was flat chested? I doubt it. Men can be pretty superficial. They are drawn to a large chest. I don’t think Jessica quite understands that. She thinks they LOVE her. In three months it will be over, maybe less. If you watched NEWLYWEDS, you would realize she is not really that nice.

  36. bellaluna says:

    @ JustSaying:

    I wonder if would have dropped his business school plans if she wasn’t BANKROLLING him and his lifestyle right now! I can’t imagine someone just throwing away his/her future because their relationship is “new” at the moment. And yes, the relationship probably won’t last beyond the infatuation stage.

  37. penny says:

    my prediction is that she is going to marry this guy…

    reason: he looks just like her dad.

  38. ME says:

    This peeves me off! This just shows how incredibly selfish she is. If I was her, I would have encouraged my boyfriend to finish his degree and we would visit each other on weekends. She knows she’s a celebrity and can take advantage of his excitement about being with her. Pathetic…..

  39. Rita says:

    I feel sorry for her, she seems so desperate and needy for some type of relationship with any man she can cling to. She is 30 now, making lots of money with her clothing line, but does not seem to have any confidence in herself. She is hanging on to this guy for dear life, just like with John Mayer, so awkward to see. Why she would want anyone to see this pix is beyond me.

  40. t says:

    She is not in a relationship. She is in a pr stunt and that is why she takes pictures like this.

  41. NayNay says:

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. It is only a matter of time before he runs for cover, as all the others have done.

  42. belle Epoch says:

    Well, now we know who was at the bottom of his class at Yale.

    Did he really get accepted at Wharton or is that a story to save face?

  43. becca says:

    Hey, if he got accepted to Wharton, he got accepted to Wharton. But given the dumbutt decision he’s made to apparently NOT GO, This could easily be a lie. Which I wouldn’t be surprised about.

    However, if he is as smart as his alumni Yale status wants to show, he hopefully deferred. Because pretty much anyone who graduates from Wharton makes bank. And that’s a no-brainer these days.

    I’d have to say there’s a part of me that’s a bit angry at his situation as well. I’m graduating next year with my bachelor’s right now, and I want to go to grad school. But I want work experience beforehand to be a good competitor (some of the places I like are Professional schools). I am searching for internships right now, as I am downright petrified that I won’t get in and will be unemployed when I graduate next year. So I’m making sure that’s NOT going to happen.

    But this dumbutt is deciding not to go to WHARTON to be with his girlfriend?! Dear lord, Jessica has the money to make weekly trips out to Philly. And eight weeks isn’t soon at all. And she can monopolize his time on Skype. I know someone who did that when she went to London and her bf went to Beijing for a full semester. They had been together a week and she’d spend multiple hours on skype with him *eyeroll*

  44. Jeri says:

    I think it means they’re both desperate fame ho’s.

    Jessica can’t help it, she’s that way. He latched onto her purse strings & ain’t letting go for nothing.
