While ex-husband, Nick Lachey, seemed to be spending an ethereal, romantic evening with his new flame this New Year’s Eve, Jessica Simpson was operating just a step above skulking around with her lazy-faced beau, John Mayer. The two (who incidentally will top my hypothetical “least charismatic couple” list for 2006 that I plan on never actually writing) were spotted ringing in the new year, whilst sucking face at the Hudson Hotel party thrown by Christina Aguilera. From the New York Daily News:
“He was scratching her back, they were kissing, it wasn’t subtle,” says a spy at the Heineken-sponsored bash. The couple dined earlier in the evening at Country, after shopping at Barneys during the day. A source tells us they are staying together at The Mercer hotel in SoHo.
An insider says: “John has been thrilled that they have been tricking the media, but she doesn’t really care. His Christmas present to her was a framed copy of the Us Weekly cover that says ‘Dumped: John ditches Jessica.’”
I really, really hope that’s an unsubstantiated rumor, cause otherwise, Mr. Mayer is WAY lamer than I thought. And I already think he’s pretty lame. I just wonder if he’ll ever be inspired to pen, “Your Personality Is A Wonderland,” for his bubbly, blonde lady-friend.
