When he was asked a few weeks ago about what he had planned for Jessica Simpson's birthday July 10, Dallas Cowboy Quarterback, Tony Romo told everyone, "It's a secret." So I guess a kick in the ass out the door works best by surprise.
After earlier unloading star hot-shot receiver, Terrell Owens, maybe the Cowboy Curse has been lifted and Dallas football fans can quit reading the Hollywood gossip columns.
As it turned out with Romo, Jessica Simpson's birthday surprise turned out to be a shocker as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback ended their year-and-a-half relationship July 9.
So what's behind the Tony Romo/Jessica Simpson breakup? Nobody would say they didn't give it a good shot, after weathering many a storm of football jinx, fat and breakup rumor.
Could this just be another one?
Most don't think so.
"They've been seen apart with their own friends lately, not together", stated a source. "Both of them have a group of friends or a circle that did mix some but not anymore."
Although lots of fans thought it might be a great marriage, most Dallas football fans are anxious for the season to begin "without all these other distractions". The typical remark? "This is the year of the Dallas Cowboy's Super Bowl return !"
After Simpson and her family went to see Romo play for the first time in November 2007, things moved pretty quickly, he even kissed her on their first date! Days later, they shared Thanksgiving together in Texas.
But Thanksgiving this year will see Tony Romo in Dallas taking charge for the first time with the Dallas Cowboys.
