No Jessica! Microphones are not food!

Remember yesterday when I wrote about Jessica Simpson's fiancé Eric Johnson being broke? Well, to afford her ruby-and-diamond engagement ring, he magically snapped his fingers and created $100k out of thin air. Or the more likely explanation from PopEater:
"No way could Eric, who doesn't have a job at the moment, afford to purchase such an expensive ring," a friend of Jessica's tells me. "Yes, he made a little bit of money in the NFL and is from a wealthy family, but unless his parents helped him out, Jessica must have paid for it herself."

Jessica, who unveiled her flashy bling on Nov. 14 at a Kansas City department store, has long made it clear that money is not an issue with her, but even so her friends are concerned about the star's $100 million fortune.

"First, we find out that Jessica doesn't want to have a prenup, and now we find out that she might have paid for her own ring. It just doesn't feel right to me," a family friend tells me. "We all want Jessica to be happy and finally find true love after all she has been through, but she doesn't understand that in the long run if she pays for everything it will hurt her relationship with any man."
I'm calling bullshit on this story. You know how I know? Her ring isn't candy. You're telling me that, given the choice between a delicious Ring Pop or an actual ring made of diamonds and rubies, she'd really buy the one made of diamonds and rubies? If you believe that, I've got some land on the Moon I want to sell you. Earth views!

    I'm jealous. He is getting wealth and fame from doing nothing but standing next to JS in public.

    Even then he doesn't do that. He is usually walking in front of her like he don't know her. Awesome gig!

    Having her pay for everything including the ring is pure bonus points.

    She should wear what ever he can afford. No matter how cheap a ring it is. It should be about their love not how big the diamond is.

    Quote = ( her friends are concerned about the star's $100 million fortune. )

    Ummm

    How could she be worth that much ?

    He is getting the best of all worlds a rich beautiful loving wife, who is to top it all off, a native Texan.

    And even if she did - what's wrong with it?

    My mom had to buy her own wedding ring cause they had not much money - my dad never had one (but this is another story).

    I don't even care about a ring - this is not what is important for engagement or marriage.
