As far as we're concerned, Eric Johnson made Jessica Simpson pregnant and that's a fact. She has not denied this report, and all signs point to its accuracy.
Somehow not surprising in the least.
With the help of her father/manager/pimp Joe Simpson, Jessica refuses to say she is expecting until she had a deal in place. But will she be able to get one?
This isn't exactly 2003 here. While still a celebrity by any measure, Jess is no longer all the rage these days. Her last movie and album were ... we forget.
Plus, how many gossip mags are going to drop half a mill just to "break" this news ... especially after In Touch already did a month ago? Quite unclear.
The longer she walks around hiding her obvious bump (see Jessica Simpson photos) and saying nothing only diminishes the chances of a big payday too.
You can admit it, Jess. Share the joyous news. Then you can stop walking around in black, baggy clothes looking ridiculous with giant bags in front of you.
