Jessica Simpson: STFU About Nick Lachey

I have a bone to pick with Jessica Simpson. The singer, who was rumored to be ‘upset’ by the news that her ex-husband Nick Lachey was engaged to his girlfriend (of a fairly long time) Vanessa Minnillo, decided to call in to Ryan Seacrest’s show to clear up her side of the story.

WHY!? Girl, who cares what people think? If you’re happy for Nick, then you call him personally and congratulate him or send him a card. I realize he is your ex-husband and it’s been only 5 years since you split, but you’ve gotta stop talking about the son-of-a-bitch. You’ve got a man. Worry about him. Talk about him. Don’t be sticking your nose back into all that drama.

Simpson told Seacrest, “I don’t know where all those rumors came from … I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa.I am extremely, extremely happy for him. I really wish them nothing but the best.”

Great. Again, why do you feel the need to have to publicly address it? Is it because you’re worried folks think you sit at home and cry over your Nick shrine that is at the back of your closet? We don’t even care much about you these days.

But for real, let Nick go. I realize the media wants to keep it all going and find the drama or tension between you, but when you come out and say things like this, it’s a case of “The lady doth protest too much.”

So worry about your boyfriend Eric Johnson and life will be just fine. Trust us, nobody really cares about Nick or Vanessa either.
