Why Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson's Marriage Will Work, Even If He's A Freeloader!

Insecure Jessica needs a man that will tend to her like a gardener & treat her like a beautiful flower — and Eric is that man!

Jessica Simpson, 30, is known for needing lots of attention, which is why her puppy-dog fiancé Eric Johnson ,who turned down the opportunity to go to the famed Wharton School of business to be with her , seems like the perfect guy for Jess! Since her 2005 divorce from first love Nick Lachey, Jess has dated a string of men all exhibiting the same characteristic: THEY need to be in the spotlight. And she has had to behave like wallpaper  in their background.

Over the years, Jess has tried to adapt to the “gardener” position, making sure her partner- the flower in the relationship- is able to “grow.” For instance, she dated John Mayer in 2007 and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo from 2007-2009 — and both men are total attention hogs! Eric, however, follows Jess around the world and caters to her every whim! He’ll even share her Thanksgiving float in the NYC Thanksgiving Macy’s parade.

Don’t believe us ? Take a look back at the men in Jessica’s life who were hungry for the spotlight:

  • Jessica dated, and later married, singer Nick Lachey who was the frontman of 98 Degrees. He had a huge singing career of his own to promote.
  • Jess was linked to comedian Dane Cook in 2006, and later in 2007. Dane is known for being a loud-mouthed attention seeker!
  • From Aug. 2006 to May 2007, Jess dated John Mayer, who later referred to her as “sexual napalm.” He constantly tries to push the envelope with outrageous statements and is even more in the spotlight than Jessica!
  • Jessica dated Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo from Nov. 2007 to July 2009. The football star dumped her on her birthday, and is known for dating girls that will keep him in the public eye (hello, Carrie Underwood!)
  • She also had a brief romance with Billy Corgan from Dec. 2009 to March 2010. The notoriously pretentious Smashing Pumpkins frontman didn’t have time to nurture her.

Don’t you agree that it’s time Jessica got to be “the flower” in her relationship , with Eric as “the gardener”? Who’s the flower and gardener in your relationship?

Jessica Simpson’s garden has been plowed by the entire Dallas Cowboys team.

not sure why ERIC is being attacked as he is.. I agree with Dave if you het your head out of your a– & get off the tabloids & stop creating more drama you will see thsi is a stand up guy. A great man who has done nothing to deserve the attacks on him or a special moment he planned for he & Jessica. He has his money. NOt at Jess level but he is not hurting. So sad that a couple fine joyess moment is being ripped apart for drama , hit, hate & spite.. That a lot of bullying. Leave them alone to enjoy. What right does anyone have to do this to a couple.

Funny, I’d never heard a bad thing about Eric until he started dating Jessica Simpson. A down to earth, low-key all-around good guy. The Yale student-athlete award winner who would be successful at whatever he decided to do likely headed to Wall Street until he managed to beat the odds and not only make the NFL but mostly be a starter. He avoided the limelight as an NFL starter but suddenly is an attention-seeking, unemployable, freeloader. Whatever it takes to sell magazines, I guess.

What’s with the flower/gardner comparisons? Let’s be realistic: Jess may be thirty but she has the maturity of a teenager. She defines herself by the man she currently has. Also having daddy up in her business is a marriage/relationship killer. Even if this marriage does take place, it won’t last.

I think it’s pretty simple why it won’t last whether they actually go through with it or not. She doesn’t know true love when she had it since she gave up on unconditional love that she received from Nick. But John and Tony definitely dodged a HUGE bullet by breaking up with her. John needs a stronger, more educated, woman to challenge him intellectually. Tony obviously had better things to do with his time than to go to a Barbie themed birthday party for someone that was well past the age of five.

Flower or gardener? Sorry, Im in a life partner in an adult relationship. There’s give and take…sometimes one is giving more and the other receiving, sometimes one shines and the other is a supporter. What does it matter? I dont give this ‘marriage’ much chance. Im guessing it was motivated by PR and image reasons.

hmm. im quite sure patty from the millionaire matchmaker would disagree with you: “when the guy is a freeloader, the woman becomes the mommy. and no woman wants to sleep with her son.”
