Will Jessica Simpson Beat Nick Lachey to the Altar?

I’m not sure why one announces their engagement as if there’s no hurry to get married, but Jessica Simpson says she’s in no rush to wed fiancé Eric Johnson. And her ex, Nick Lachey’s engagement has been collecting dust, too.

Lachey’s not-so-soon-to-be wife, Vanessa Minnillo, told Hollyscoop: “We haven’t thought of anything—any dates, any places—anything.”

Similarly, Simpson also recently told Women’s Wear Daily, “No date has been set. We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time.”

Translate: We’re waiting until the thunder-stealing Royal Wedding is over.

Actually, Simpson says she might opt to forgo all the mayhem that is planning a wedding:

“We might elope if it gets to that point,” she says.

It's been almost five months since the engagement, and with nothing planned that might be the best bet.

With both couples crawling to the altar, who knows who’ll get there first? Let’s just hope neither decides to star in a reality show about being newly married. I have this weird feeling that wouldn’t go over so well.

And despite the fact that most of the stuff on clearance at Macy's has her name on it, Jessica has had a lot of success with her clothing line, so she’ll be designing her own wedding gown.

When HS asked Minnillo if she’s thought about her dress, she told us, “of course I have, I’m a woman,” but refused to give details with Lachey standing next to her.

Something tells me she won’t be going with a Jessica Simpson original.
