Hollywood--Jessica Simpson is engaged to Eric Johnson.
Jessica is denying rumors that she announced the engagement because her ex-husband Nick Lachey announced his engagement to Vanessa Minnillo.
"No, I am not trying to one-up Nick when it comes to seeing who is going to get more press coverage for their engagement announcements. I just think that Eric and I are really happy and getting married is the right thing for us." Jessica Simpson said via her rep.
Ms. Simpson as rumored to be furious that Nick was able to find such an attractive and intelligent woman to settle down with.
She was really just made about the fact that when they were together it didn't seem like Nick was into smart woman.
Nick Lachey is said to be alright with the timing of Jessica's announcement, because it clearly shows she isn't over him.
