Jessica Simpson Reveals How Eric Johnson Proposed

Jessica Simpson is sharing details of how her fiance Eric Johnson popped the big question!

“I absolutely had no idea. He had talked to my mom and dad and my sister [Ashlee] three weeks before he asked me. He had the ring in his shoe at my house somewhere,” she says on The Morning Mash Up radio show, in an interview airing Thursday, December 2.

“I was like, why hide it in a shoe, but it worked. He got down on his knee and I had to sit down on it because I was so shocked,” she says.

Jess, 30, adds that it happened while she was watching Parenthood. “I was short of breath. It was definitely one of those moments where I’ve never felt that way before, ever … We met in my house it was amazing that he proposed to me in my house.”

“I can’t believe all the Simpsons kept a secret,” says Jess.

    I love the way that everyone who has made a statement has been stressing how long Eric has been planning to pop the question so Jessica does not come across as pathetic.
    Well she may be right about how long he has been planning: he’s been planning since he met her on the fastest way to her cash and lucked out because Nick Lachey proposed to Vanessa, giving Eric the opportunity to “give in” to the pressure from her family. Nice move Eric!

    Can’t Jessica, Lindsay, Paris and all the Kardashians just disappear?? We’re all full of hearing about their wasted lifestyles. Not a one of them puts any of that money to good use. For those of us working to keep a roof over our head–we don’t want to hear anymore.

    He shoulda hid that ring in a giant ham, she probably woulda found it quicker.

    Roxy Says:

    hahahaha!!!What a bunch of crap. What he borrowed the money form her to buy that ugly ring. I think she needs to stop doing interviews discussing her personal love life. Actually I think most celebs needs to stop doing that.

    First of all, I like Jessica Simpson, especially when she was married to Nick. Nick has moved on, and Vanessa is wonderful, and I am glad to see Jessica has moved on also. If all of this is real.
    But, apparently she has lied.
    She said she “has never felt this way before, ever” when Eric proposed to her.
    I remember her saying those exact words when she described how Nick proposed to her.
    Also, how can someone who has not job afford a $100,000.00 ring,?
    I personally think Jessica purchased it herself.

    But on a serious note: If this IS FOR REAl, I hope that her father stays out of this marriage. I personally think Nick and Jessica would still be married if he had not butted in on their marriage.

    He is ,well, how to say this delicately. He does not look like Tony Romo or Nick Lachey. He is more in the vein of John Mayer, but not like John Mayer because John Maye has tens of millions of dollars on his face and that makes him,John has a great career, works hard,and makes great music.

    Eric is a Life Coach.Yep. That is his job per Jessica’s interview .
    Rumor has it he is worth 2 million from football. I doubt that much because no way his exwife would have gone away with just enough to buy the big MCDonald’s meal deal #7.
    He was a mediocere football player.

    I do not dislike Jessica. I just wish she would keep the details private.Enoguh said. She has said way too much in the past and it has bitten her.

    Good deal for her.She gets a marriage and a baby.
    Eric,uck,gets money and a chance to live in luxury like he never knew.

    Hopes she gets an ironclad prenup.

    She had aparty at her house and some friends brought him to set her up with.
    It worked.
    They are engaged.
    She is pregnant.
    He is in the money.

    Louisa Says:

    This fluffy story is to counter the gossip that is all over the internet – that she has been putting the pressure on him to get married for months and she bought the ring herself. Word is she’s trying to get a ring on him as fast as possible so she beats Nick to the altar. Moved on? I don’t think so. Pathetic, more like it.

    Sheri Says:

    I can’t think of a more unromantic way to propose! He had her hit the pause button during “Parenthood”?? Huh?! Couldn’t he have at least taken her to a swanky restaurant in Beverly Hills to pop the question? I don’t know what she sees in this guy … he seems like such a bore. This whole relationship seems incredibly forced.

    If this was a real relationship that would go down as the worst proposal in history. Of course we all know the whole fake thing is timed to get in her the tabloids while her crappy record is out. Pathetic woman, pathetic family.

    Her shoe?? The way she’s been eating he was probably nervous if he the ring anywhere near food she’d eat it!
    Is Papa Joe trying to get her a plus line at Lane Bryant??

    Jessica needs to shut her big ol’ country mouf’ UP. Quit spreading every detail of your childish relationships around the globe..maybe that way one of them will actually last.
    She comes across as needy,desperate and incredibly stupid…scary combination.
