Considering Tony & Jessica’s history, there HAD to have been some awkwardness between these two correspondents Saturday night!
Jessica Simpson, 29, flew solo to the annual White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington D.C. on May 1 — but the same can’t be said for her ex-BF Tony Romo! He arrived at the major media event arm-in-arm with new younger, skinnier girlfriend Candice Crawford, 23, who he started dating shortly after dumping Jess (on her birthday!) in July 2009. It’s no wonder why Jess reportedly looked “miserable” all night — she’s still not over him!
Candice, who happens to be the sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, also competed in Miss Texas Teen USA, Miss Missouri USA and Miss USA pageants. (Poor, Jess! The fact that her ex is dating a younger girl is bad enough, but does she have to also be a beauty queen?) She now hosts a weekly sports show about the Dallas Cowboys, which is how she first met football player Tony.
Tony reportedly initiated the break up with Jess because she embarrassed him. “Jessica would get really drunk and obnoxious, it was out of control,” a friend of Tony’s told Fox News. She would be sprawled everywhere with he head on his lap and the look on Tony’s face said it all. … He was so embarrassed in front of all the guys and his teammates were really harsh on him over it.”
But despite Tony’s negative feelings towards her, Jessica has nothing but the nicest things to say about him.
“I still look at his cute butt in the outfit – uniform,” Jess admitted to David Letterman on March 11. Though she says Tony, 30, is “still a friend,” we can’t believe Jess would actually admit to checking out her ex! Does that sound normal to you?
Jess, we’re glad you’re not on bad terms with your ex, but now that he’s flaunting his new girlfriend all over the country, we suggest you DON’T make any more comments about him. You don’t want to look desperate! You need to find a new man who APPRECIATES you — so brush your teeth and start looking!
