The Sisters Simpson are big news on the pages of supermarket glossies this week…and the dish has got nothing to do with Ashlee’s pending divorce from Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz.
Jessica should be having the time of her life. Her clothing empire is predicted to take in more than a billion dollars this year, and she enjoyed a whirlwind engagement to Eric in November after dating for just six months. Now the 30-year-old’s supposed to be planning her fairytale second wedding, but the buxom blonde is suffering a severe case of cold feet, questioning whether Eric, 31, is The One, thanks to Ashlee’s persistent meddling.
Ashlee, who has been pictured as of late looking rather like a gin-swilling divorcee who’s fallen on hard times, is refusing to attend sister Jessica’s wedding to Eric Johnson, Britain’s Daily Star reports. Ash says the former football player is not good enough for her sister. Of course, Ashlee’s currently in the middle of a divorce and possible custody battle with husband Pete over the custody of their oddly-named two-year-old, Bronx Mowgli.
Kinda has a way of mudding up a girl’s thoughts on the sanctity of Holy Matrimony.
“The whole family is furious with her,” a tabloid squeal says of Ashlee, who has been sharing Jessica’s Los Angeles mansion with the couple since leaving Pete last month. “Jessica just won’t set a date or a location, she’s giving lots of excuses – like she has too much on in her work schedule – but really it seems that she’s freaking out that this isn’t what she wants,” the confidante confides.
“At first everything seemed so perfect with Eric, but as time’s gone by she is just feeling increasingly insecure about the relationship. She thought he was the person she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, but she’s just not sure any longer.”
