By their fruits - or at least their cahoots - ye shall know them as Tonica.

Tonica, as in Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson, according to a new Sporting News football column. Tonica, as in a more scrutinized and entertaining, if slightly less beautiful, couple than Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.

Tonica, as in the single organism that threatens to devour the Super Bowl dreams of the Dallas Cowboys. Perhaps you've heard that Romo and Simpson - with some of his Cowboys teammates - vacationed in Mexico last week.

If you're a Cowboys fan, that means you'll be subjected all week to deathly serious speculation that Tonica's powers of distraction are too potent for the QB to complete the task at hand - beating the rival Giants Sunday.

Is Jessica Simpson a distraction for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo?

Dallas has been the better of the two teams all year, but lately, celebrity gossip mongers have hit the TV and radio airwaves and the blogosphere to forge a link between Simpson and Romo - and any of the Cowboys' imperfections.

The strains of angst rose up at Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve and now this week, resuscitating talk that Romo fumbled away last year's playoff game because of another celebrity girlfriend - Carrie Underwood - on hand.

Even star teammate Terrell Owens got in on the act after the Cowboys' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last month - a game attended by Simpson that was, wouldn't you know it, the worst statistical game of Tony Romo's career.

"Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite in this locker room," Terrell Owens joked. "I think a lot of people feel like she's taking his focus away."

Can Tony Romo keep his focus? Or is this oversexed QB destined to implode Sunday? Wouldn't it be good to be Matt Leinart and focus only on partying?

Well, that's one way to relax before the playoffs.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and girlfriend Jessica Simpson jetted off to Los Cabos, Mexico, on Friday night for a little poolside vacation with some of his teammates - and Jessica's pimps parents.

The hot pair - enjoying a post-New Year's break before Tony Romo's playoff loss battle against the New York Giants next weekend - kept it low-key by staying at a private pad in a gated community with their own chef.

But someone still got a photo of Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo. Peep it:

Look for Jessica to be there in her pink Romo jersey to watch an over-sexed, distracted Tony throw four interceptions in defeat next Sunday.

Simpson and the NFL star have gotten cozier in the past few months. They spent the recent holidays together in Dallas and even showed some late-night PDA while partying at Hollywood club Teddy's in December.

It looks like at least some of Tony Romo's teammates have warmed up to Jessica Simpson. Somehow, though, we doubt Terrell Owens was in Cabo.

After many - including teammate Terrell Owens - blamed Jessica Simpson for his team's loss last Sunday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo overcame the taunts of Carolina Panthers fans Saturday night and pulled out a win.

The Cowboys' 20-13 victory came despite thousands of fans wearing Simpson masks and blonde wigs, and after a week of controversy following the star QB's terrible game in Dallas attended by a pink-Romo-jersey-wearing Simpson.

ESPN says Simpson was present Saturday night but was not seen on camera. In a post-game press conference, Tony Romo discussed the Jessica drama.

"I just put tunnel vision on," he explained. "There's so many distractions. I felt like the important thing for my team was to get myself into football mode 24/7."

When asked if the attention and anger (jokingly and otherwise) from Cowboys fans directed at himself and Jessica Simpson had bothered him, Tony Romo replied:

"I try to just let it roll off my back. It doesn't really bother me, to be honest. But it hurts me when it hurts the people that are close to you. I thought that some of the journalistic integrity this week was poor in some ways."

Taunting Tony Romo, a young fan holds up a mask of Jessica Simpson, which looks almost exactly like her except that it can't sing or act. Come to think of it...

Last week, Tony Romo completed just 13 passes and threw three interceptions, the worst game of his career. Yesterday, the stud muffin completed 28 passes and threw for 257 yards and just one interception as Dallas improved to 13-2.

Jessica Simpson's professional performance so far this weekend has not been as impressive. Her latest movie, the romantic comedy Blonde Ambition, was released in just eight theatres and on its opening day grossed just $384.

A day after calling out Jessica Simpson for showing up and distracting Tony Romo during the Dallas Cowboys' loss to Philadelphia, star receiver Terrell Owens is now saying he was kidding and didn't mean to cause trouble.

"I tried to get [Tony Romo] to call her so I can explain to her that she doesn't really know me and that I can be funny," Terrell Owens, a.k.a. T.O., told the Dallas Morning News. "Everything I say, the media will take it and run with it. It's not a big deal. I will try to rectify the situation between her and I."

We can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if said phone conversation were to actually take place. Probably something along the lines of this ...

Terrell Owens: Jessica, it's TO. I want to rectify this situation.
Jessica Simpson: I don't rectify on the first phone call.
TO: What if I hung up and called back?
JS: [pauses] Well, that would make it our third phone call; let's do it.

[TO hangs up and calls again]

JS: Hello?
TO: So, can we rectify this?
JS: Who is this?
TO: Jessica, it's TO. We just spoke.
JS: A consonant and a vowel on the same line? Now I've heard everything!
TO: The media has taken what I said about you and printed it. I didn't realize they could do that, and I certainly had no idea you could read. So you see theNice Rack situation I'm in. I want to rectify this.
JS: I don't rectify on the first phone call.
TO: [mutters incoherently and hangs up]

[TO calls back, Crazy Joe Simpson answers this time]

Joe Simpson: Joe Simpson.
TO: Um, this is Terrell Owens. I, uh, I was...
Joe Simpson: Are you threatening one of my employees?
TO: Look man, I-
Joe Simpson: No YOU look, man. I run the show around here, y'understand? I have a lot invested in Jessica, and I sure as hell don't need your-
TO: I'm just trying to rectify...
Joe Simpson: You can rectify my foot up your ass, boy. And quit complainin' you don't get the ball enough. Tony is doin' his best out there. But... out of curiosity, are you single?
TO: Um... I'm often double-covered these days because I'm an exceptional talent. One for the ages, really. But I'm not dating anyone, if that's what you mean. But Tony and Jessica are going out, so...
Joe Simpson: So what?!? She can date you both. Twice the exposure, right? We can make a movie about it. Jessica Simpson Does Dallas Cowboys. I'll produce it.
TO: Isn't that a bit awkward, I mean...
Joe Simpson: And I have another daughter named Ashlee. Can she play running back for you guys?
TO: Julius Jones and Marion Barber do a fine job already. Can you just tell Jessica we're all good? No hard feelings?
Joe Simpson: Know who was hard a lot? That Nick Lachey guy. Because he got to see my hot daughter naked.
Jessica (in the background): Dad! I need help with this bra!
Joe: Coming, dear! [hangs up]

Despite Terrell Owens' best efforts to rectify the situation between Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson... pimp/father Joe Simpson just confused him thoroughly.

Plenty of fans are angry at Jessica Simpson for her perceived jinxing of Tony Romo last weekend. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens among them.

The 27-year-old "singer-actress" has sparked rage among Dallas Cowboys fans, angry at Simpson's appearance at Sunday's game and the abysmal showing by Tony Romo, their quarterback and her new boyfriend. Dallas lost, 10-6.

Asked about the Jessica Simpson situation, Terrell Owens - the team's star wide receiver and a frequent controversy magnet himself - chimed in: "Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite ... in this locker room or in Texas Stadium."

Rah Rah Romo

Terrell Owens would just as soon not see this #9 show up next week.

Tony Romo had what was statistically the worst game of his career as Dallas lost to the Philadelphia Eagles... all while Simpson sat in a luxury box wearing a pink Tony Romo #9 jersey she proudly showed off for television cameras.

Her pimp and father, Joe Simpson, was also on hand.

Still in the minds of Cowboy fans is the fact that Tony Romo's previous worst game came last December at home - also against the Eagles - when another famous girlfriend, Carrie Underwood, was in attendance.

"With everything that happened, the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel like she's kind of taken his focus away," Owens said. "Other than that, she was hot on my list until last week.

And the receiver isn't done if Jessica Simpson dares show her face again.

"Oh, I got a message for her when we make the playoffs," he added. "Just stay tuned."

Jessica Simpson's latest movie, Blonde Ambition, is going straight to DVD.

Similarly, the blonde's actual ambition of resurrecting a dying career by milking every ounce of publicity out of dating a star football player was made apparent yesterday during her visit to Big D.

The moronic, attention-starved singer attended the Dallas Cowboys game in a pink Tony Romo shirt. No doubt she was there solely to support her new man, not to pose for the camera at every opportunity...

A wider shot reveals Jessica Simpson's pimp father at her side. Listen closely enough and you can hear exactly what Joe Simpson is whispering to his daughter: Ok, honey, look excited... now! Appear to be concerned... now! 

As the resident stud of the NFL, Romo has also dated Carrie Underwood and Sophia Bush. But we don't recall them showing up to any games in such overt fashion.

We do recall them having actual talent and careers of their own, however.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys were upset by the Philadelphia Eagles, 10-6, and Tony Romo threw three interceptions in the game.

With Jessica Simpson cozying up to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, can we expect double dates with her BFF, CaCee Cobb, and boyfriend Donald Faison?

Faison, the star of Scrubs, recent addressed that pressing issue.

"CaCee and I prefer to keep our relationship away from the glitz and cameras," the actor told People at Hollywood Life magazine's Breakthrough of the Year Awards on Sunday. "But [Tony Romo] is a great guy."

The friendly foursome did log some quality time last week, when they helped CaCee Cobb celebrate her 30th birthday at Teddy's nightclub.

As the bash wound down, Simpson and the NFL star, both 27, were spotted kissing in public - according to some onlookers, it was a big-time PDA.

Impressed that he's led the Cowboys to a 12-1 record and found a new tight end in Jessica Simpson, Tony Romo gets a pat on the back from receiver Terrell Owens.

We know Jessica's pimp already approved of the relationship, so it's good to see that her friends are also on board when it comes to the Cowboy gunslinger.

"I think he is really, really, really smart," said Donald Faison, 33, of Tony Romo. "[He's a] really genuine guy."

Tony Romo may not be able to keep his hands on the football at key moments in the playoffs, but he seems qualified to grip Jessica Simpson firmly at all times.

While we recognize that the above joke is dated - Romo has emerged as one of the NFL's best this year, leading Dallas to an 11-1 mark - the latter portion of the wisecrack remains accurate. He and Jessica are goin' nuts with the PDA!

Bust-Boosting Dress

Tony Romo lines up behind Jessica Simpson... 36-25-34... HIKE!

At the birthday party for Jessica's pal and former bitch, CaCee Cobb, on December 1, witnesses say Simpson and Romo were all over one another.

"They were all over each other on the couch, making out," says a source at Teddy's, the club where the hot CaCee Cobb birthday bash was held.

"They were on top of each other! It was a little bit much for a public place. He was holding her close and she wasn't paying attention to anyone else."

The source adds that Simpson is "crazy" about Tony Romo and "gushes about how sweet he is." Plus, we know her pimp already approves!

Apparently, he's also generous. Simpson was overheard telling pal Ken Paves that Romo picked up the Teddy's check for their entire 12-person party!

We just hope poor Sophia Bush isn't reading this. :-(

One of the biggest pieces of celebrity gossip lately is the new coupling of Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo and how they've just gone public together.

Well, the supposed singer and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback don't seem totally comfortable in the spotlight just yet. Upon being sighted by the celebrity news media earlier this week, a rough-looking Jessica tried to make a break for it!

Jessica Simpson tries to elude paparazzi as Tony Romo looks on.

One wonders what she could be trying to hide - did she forget to put on her usual 10 pounds of makeup or have her daily lip injections this morning?

In any case, Tony Romo, who has been linked to Carrie Underwood, Alli Sims and Sophia Bush, certainly enjoys playing the field - football and otherwise.

The Dallas Cowboys may have had the weekend off after winning Thursday, but star quarterback Tony Romo still made a perfect pass... at Jessica Simpson.

The alleged singer and actress and the NFL star flirted up a storm Saturday at the hot Hollywood nightclub Teddy's. The occasion? Jessica Simpson's best friend and former personal bitch, CaCee Cobb, celebrated her 30th birthday.

Baby Got Back

At first, Jessica Simpson, wearing a hot, form-fitting black dress and spike heels, and her new football beau kept things low-key in a secluded booth.

But as the night continued on, the pair was spotted getting hot and heavy with their arms around one other. Then, after a few seconds of surely very deep conversation, Tony Romo leaned for a kiss - right in the middle of the crowded club.

Also on hand for the b-day bash were Cacee Cobb's boyfriend, Donald Faison of Scrubs fame, and Simpson's quasi-famous hairdresser, Ken Paves.

Last month, Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo had Thanksgiving dinner together in Dallas. In recent months, the Cowboys signal-caller has been romantically linked to Carrie Underwood, Alli Sims, Sophia Bush and others.
