The lovebirds have taken the lust to another level. Jessica Simpson says Cowboys QB Tony Romo has helped her get back to being Jessica. I guess that failed marriage to Nick Lachey left her feeling down.
Ol Jess opens up to Glamour magazine with these incredible insights like how they met:
GLAMOUR: Where did you meet Tony? Was it a blind date, or were you at a party?
JS: No. The cute story is that my family and I were watching a Cowboys game. I was going through my divorce and–Tony would die if I told you this–but [on television there was a story] about him. They said his celebrity dream crush was Jessica Simpson.
GLAMOUR: And you hadn’t met him yet?
JS: My family was like, “Did you just hear that?” His picture came up and I’m like, He’s really cute. Then I heard [that I was his crush], and I’m like, Oh my gosh!
GLAMOUR: And you’d never met him?
JS: No. I didn’t meet him for a year and a half after that.
GLAMOUR: How did your first date come about?
JS: One of my best friends played on a basketball team with Tony. He introduced Tony to my dad, and they hung out. Then Tony e-mailed my dad, “Cute date,” when we were at the Country Music Awards [last November], because we were sitting next to each other in the audience and I guess we made a camera shot. My dad was like, “Look what Tony said.” I said, “Give him my e-mail address. We’ll see if he’s good with words.” Then he e-mailed me, and we flirted over e-mail and on the phone. We got to know each other by talking, which I think is the best way. We set up our first date on November 20. Today is our four-month anniversary, but it seems like we’ve been together for so much longer. I said five months to him today, and [Tony] goes, “Baby, that hurts my feelings that you don’t even know.”
“he still deserves all the accolades for bringing me back to who I am.”
GLAMOUR: Back to the tabloids: People still talk about that time you showed up at Tony’s game wearing the pink Cowboys jersey and he played terribly. What’s that all about?
JS: I don’t know–other than me wearing my man’s jersey and cheering him on. And him not playing the way he would’ve hoped and all of a sudden I’m to blame.
GLAMOUR: Why take it out on you?
JS: Because everybody takes everything out on me! [Laughs.] But that was ludicrous. I don’t understand why they think that I would be a distraction to Tony. Do they really think he can see way far up in that box? No. He’s the most focused person I’ve ever dated. I love Dallas. I love the Cowboys. I grew up watching Troy Aikman and all of the quarterbacks, Roger Staubach…. The great thing about Dallas is there’s no paparazzi.
