Hey, JoeBlow69, that’s probably not the real Jessica Simpson you’re talking to online. We doubt she actually goes by the screen name, IReallyAmJessicaSimpson.

But that doesn’t mean the ex of Nick Lachey isn’t somewhere around the Internet right now.

A source told Britain’s More magazine:

“After she split up with John Mayer, she set up a MySpace page to meet new people. She did it in a fake name, but got really into it. She’s totally addicted. Whenever she’s at home, she’s on her laptop.”

Simpson is said to be seduced by the freedom and anonymity Internet dating provides. Her sister, of course, was said to be seduced by Nick Carter.

The source added: “Jessica loves the idea she can use the Internet to look for a man who’s interested in her personality. She pretends to be this shy Texan girl.”

Pretending to be someone else is definitely the way to get a guy to like you for your personality. That’s why Alison Clinton pretended not to be a desperate attention seeker in order to bag her husband.
