Jessica Simpson and new boyfriend Eric Johnson are spending plenty of time together, as evidenced by their Twitter kiss and all that good stuff.

How serious are they getting? More than you might think. People says that Johnson has ditched plans to attend business school in Pennsylvania.

Is that so the former NFL player can devote more time to dating Jess? Is he just using her, as some sources have suggested in the past month?

A friend of his says no … but confirms he did put off grad school.

Eric Johnson had planned to attend the prestigious Wharton Business School’s MBA program this month, but “decided against it,” says the friend. “There were a lot of factors that went into his decision.” We can think of two big ones.

“Jessica supports whatever he wants to do. He has a lot going on.”

She won raves for her Entourage cameo, is reportedly in the running to become an American Idol judge, and has a new VH1 project in the works.

“She is in pre-production for a new show,” a TV insider says without elaborating. “It will be the next step to her VH1 series, The Price of Beauty.”

No word if the show will be called The Price of Hotness.
