Other Relationship Information about Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo:

The relationship is controversial among some Dallas Cowboys fans, as she is blamed when Romo has poor football performances as exemplified by a December game in which the Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. Some of the Cowboy's fans have given her the nickname Yoko Romo in comparison to Yoko Ono who many Beatles fans blame for "ruining" John Lennon. This was further fueled when the Cowboys lost to the Giants in the divisional playoffs, when Romo & Simpson went on a trip during the Cowboy's bye week. FOX broadcaster Terry Bradshaw called into question Simpson and Romo vacationing in Mexico. "If only Tony had called me and said, 'Terry, Jessica [Simpson] and I are going to go to Mexico,' I would've told him: 'You crazy? Don't do that! The paparazzi is going to find you, man. You're a star. She's a star. It's just going to happen,' " Bradshaw said in an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Even President Bush jokingly endorsed the "Jessica jinx" after the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl in 2008. During the traditional White House reception for the winning team, the president quipped, "We're going to send Jessica Simpson to the Democrat National Convention."

A friend of Jessica Simpson made the following statement about their relationship: "Jessica is very needy. She is very clingy," the friend said. "She is so sweet, but sometimes because of that she's hard to be around. It's not always easy. She hates to be alone. That's what happened with [ex-boyfriend and Dallas Cowboys quarterback] Tony [Romo]. Jessica smothers people. She doesn't really have any hobbies. Daisy was exactly what Jessica needed."

Classic Quotes by Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo about their relationship:

"I date someone who gets ridiculed pretty often as well. We go back and forth: 'That's not bad at all...' She's an extremely strong woman because she's been doing it for an extended period of time now." Tony Romo 2/6/2009
"Tony understands me. He appreciates my talent. He's the first person I've spiritually connected with." Jessica Simpson 9/2008
"I have to watch the Cowboys every weekend and go through that anxiety!" Jessica Simpson

"He reintroduced me to myself. I thought that I had to be deeper, more profound and more artsy. You change with the guys you date." Jessica Simpson 4/2008
"I grew up in Dallas so I ... [had] a crush on Troy Aikman, who was the quarterback at the time. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback, I think there's a requirement, like, you have to be good looking." Jessica Simpson 11/2008
"I wrote this song ['You're My Sunday'] for a very special man in my life. He definitely has changed me and inspires me every day." Jessica Simpson 1/29/2009
"[I've] always been a Jessica Simpson fan. I always thought she's been pretty." Tony Romo 2006
"I don't care about perception. People like to believe everything they read and hear and stuff, but I'm content in my own skin." Tony Romo 1/10/2008
"I came to an understanding a little while back that no one is going to remember me in five or seven years anyway so let them talk and say what they want to say. In seven years, I'm going to be off doing whatever and living normal so it's like, 'Work hard. Try to do things right in life and forget about the rest of the junk.' [I'm] definitely not [over my head]. I don't read the stuff like everyone else does, so it doesn't affect me. If I were to watch and read everything that is written and said, as a human being it would probably be difficult." Tony Romo 2/8/2008
"I mean, it's just rumors. That's what people say. I'm sure I'll get married one day. I don't know when. Yeah, sure. Though we don't usually have conversations about how fun and fearless I am, but I'm a pretty fun guy. I joke a lot. We've done a lot of fun stuff. Any time you get away and do some interesting things. We just went to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. That was pretty fun. [And] no, [her dad didn't set us up]. I had met her dad a long time ago. He was there at the same time I met her, but it was indirect. You know, you just start talking. Some people take a liking to each other. Some don't." Tony Romo 3/3/2008
"It feels like [we've been together] forever. I love this guy. Can you feel it? What he's done for me is irreplaceable. He reintroduced me to myself. I thought that I had to be deeper, more profound and more artsy...Tony taught me that because he loves me [as me]. He made me feel comfortable [being myself] again. [I always thought he was] really cute. [One our first date], he goes like this, [puckering his lips], across the table. I go, 'What are you doing?' He goes, 'Nothing,' and starts pouting. I said, 'Were you just trying to kiss me in front of all these people?' He goes, 'Maybe.' I'm like, 'Try it again.' The fact that this guy, on our first date, in the first 10 minutes of dinner, wanted to lean over the table and say, 'This is my girl and I want to kiss her, our first kiss in front of everybody,' was awesome." Jessica Simpson 4/30/2008
"It's all laughable [and] so far from the truth [that Jess' dad is coming between us]." Tony Romo 6/13/2008
"Tonight there's this guy here, he throws a football and he's really good at it; he's my better tomorrow and I wrote this song ['You're My Sunday'] for him." Jessica Simpson 7/19/2008
"I love every quality that Tony has. I can't predict the future, but right now I'm as happy as I could possibly imagine. He really inspires me. I don't think that I would be in a relationship this long if I didn't hope for happily ever after." Jessica Simpson 8/7/2008
"I just told him today, 'You're the love of my life.' I don't really ever say that to anybody. I don't want anybody that's been in my life [before to be] in my life anymore. I don't even want them to have any way of contacting me. [Though Tony still contacts his exes], I'm not a jealous girlfriend...I had to regain self-esteem and self-value. I just love, so I don't understand when people can't do exactly what I do." Jessica Simpson 8/28/2008
"Tony is a great quarterback, but he's a better boyfriend. I'm seriously proud of myself for letting him into my life. Through all the chaos and torment and everything I go through, I can lay in his arms and finally rest. To be my man, you have to put up with a lot. I toot under the sheets, I spend a lot of money and I can belch the ABC's." Jessica Simpson 9/19/2008
"We are not engaged! Tony and I have not gone to Neiman Marcus. Somebody said we bought a ring there. I couldn't drag Tony in to Neiman Marcus if I tried." Jessica Simpson 10/13/2008
