Jessica Simpson may have manufactured her engagement

It’s looking more and more like the timing of Jessica Simpson‘s engagement is not a coincidence.  Friends and associates have pointed out that her fiancé, Johnson, is currently unemployed, and although his parents are well off, the man himself is not exactly swimming in money at the moment.

Jessica’s ring is worth an estimated $100,000, prompting many to speculate whether she actually bought it herself.  In addition, even though Jessica and Eric have only been dating for a few months, she’s agreed to marry him without a prenup, and considering that she’s worth more than $100 million, that’s a lot of money that Eric will be getting his hands on soon.  Things that make you go hmmmm.

Jessica Simpson getting married again

Not to be outdone by ex-hubby Nick Lachey getting engaged to Vanessa Minnillo, Jessica Simpson has a little announcement of her own: she’s getting married again, too.  Simpson and NFL player Eric Johnson have only been dating since May, but she’s already wearing the huge diamond engagement ring he gave her, and they’re trying to find a date for the wedding that doesn’t clash with either of their schedules.

If the timing of this engagement seems a little bit suspicious, go ahead and place your bets now – Jessica was recently caught in a difficult position when she refused to say whether or not she thought Johnson was “the one” for her, but that he was definitely Mr. Right Now.
