Jessica Simpson Breaks Silence on Nick's Engagement

Jessica Simpson is setting the record straight on how she really feels about Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minnillo.

She talked to Ryan Seacrest this morning to do some damage control over the rumor that she was “saddened” by the news.

"I am extremely, extremely happy for him," she told Ryan. "I don't know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and said that everyone was saying that I was 'saddened.' I was just in complete shock. I couldn't be more happy for Nick.

"Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I really wish them nothing but the best.”

Very Hallmark of you, Jess! Obviously she was coached on what to say before that interview. If she said anything else but that, she’s end up looking like a jealous ex-wife.

So we congratulate Jess on saying exactly what was expected of her. As for her new boyfriend Eric Johnson, she says the two will be spending the holidays together.

"My first New York Thanksgiving!" she says."I know his family's going to be with us on the float at the Macy's Day Parade, and my family will be there."

Says the singer, "Having a boyfriend through the holidays, we're going to see how all that splits up."

Welcome to an adult relationship, Jess!
