Love in Aspen for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson capped-off their Christmas weekend with Jess’ family in Texas and traded it for the winter chill in Aspen. The two lovebirds were spotted Tuesday night, decked out in winter wear, shopping at Fendi before settling into their private home.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the couple of only 7 months would be tying the knot this weekend, but as of today there has been no confirmation.

Jessica Gushes over Her First Christmas with Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson had three special reasons to celebrate this Christmas.

“We are lucky to have 3 new studs in the fam: Pete, BX, and EJ!” the recently engaged star Tweeted Sunday, referring to her sister Ashlee’s husband, nephew Bronx, 2, and her freshly minted fiancé.

Make that four: “Oh and I can’t forget Bentley!!!” she added, alongside a photo of her snoozing canine cutie.

The family all stayed at Simpson’s parents’ house on Christmas Eve to celebrate the holiday. As for Johnson’s first Christmas with the brood – the couple became engaged in November – Simpson, 30, said her free agent NFL player made her holiday a touchdown.

“Eric is the perfect addition to our family,” she gushed on Twitter.

And Jessica wasn’t the only Simpson caught up in the holiday spirit. Little sister Ashlee, 26, also took to Twitter to spread some Christmas cheer.

“Best day ever,” she Tweeted. “I feel blessed to have so much joy, and amazing love in my life.”


Exclusive: Producer: Jessica Simpson And Her Fiance Are “Super Duper Happy!”

One guy who has had a ton to celebrate in 2010 is Tricky Stewart. The famed producer was busy in the 1-0 crafting songs on hot releases by Rihanna, Michael Jackson, T.I., Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce.

So, naturally I thought this was the perfect time to catch up with him and thank him for the memories. What a year! First off, you wrote two songs for Christina for Burlesque. It’s a lot like Back to Basics. Is that what you were going for?

Tricky Stewart: No, I didn’t work on Back to Basics, but overall I always talk about the theory, which is that every artist has a sound no matter what producers they work with. With Christina Aguilera, I tried to embody what she has done, and that is why there may be some similarity.

US: You really pulled some emotion out of her on this album How were you able to do that? I know she was going through a divorce at the time. Was that a key factor?

TS: The emotion is there because she knows how to put herself in a position to deliver a song from that place. That’s one of the greatest things about working with great artists — they always know how to pull emotion from a real place so people can identify with it.

US: Did you talk to her about anything going on or anything like that?

TS: No, we pretty much keep it to the music. Obviously you can tell when there are better days than others, but at the end of the day we show up ready to work. We only have so much time to do what we have to do, so we don’t spend a whole lot of time talking about everything to go on in her world.

US: And Jessica Simpson was the other album you did. You produced and wrote for her Christmas album, right?

TS: Yep! Jessica brought us in and was really excited. and it was really, really fun because I’ve never done a Christmas album and I’ve always wanted to have that body of work. You know, to have that thing out like the Christmas albums that David Foster, Quincy Jones, or all the other producers that I look up to. Jessica gave me that opportunity, and it was a really great time. I was really happy about being able to make that happen.

US: Are you planning on working with her again on more music?

TS: We have actually have. I was so pleasantly surprised and happy with how everything came out! She is a gem just waiting to be rediscovered, so there is a definite possibility of us working together again in the future.

US: What was she like in the studio?

TS: She is fun and lighthearted but very serious about her singing. She is a little bit of an over-thinker sometimes because she puts so much pressure on herself. But, overall we had a great time making this record! We had to do it super fast — we started the negotiations and everything in October, which is really late for a Christmas album. But we got it done, it came out, and it’s great — everyone loved it.

US: She also got engaged. Was her new fiance around the studio?

TS: He wasn’t around the studio. Artists don’t necessarily mix that together, but, I went to their engagement party and it was very, very nice. You can clearly see how in love they are. I am married myself, so it’s great to see people in love and they are super duper happy!

US: Obviously you produced two songs on Michael Jackson’s new album that just dropped. I heard you really turned down the instruments so you can just hear his voice on the productions?

TS: I produced these songs as if he were there and we had an interaction. With Michael, there was always a certain amount of excellence expected of you. But with him not being here it became a challenge to govern yourself and that excellence and make sure that you hit the level of success that he achieved and of what he would want you to do. It was a lot of pressure. We just sat in the room and turned the album music off and just listened to the essence to the man and what his performance level in these records. Even if these weren’t finished vocals they were so intense and so much presence in them. I instantly heard his body: what his hands do, when his fingers snap when his foot stomps. And listening to all those thing isolated is very intense and you can hear the intensity in who he was as a person. Even if he could never dance. if he never did the moonwalk, Michael Jackson had one of the best voices in music.

Us: How about Loud, Rihanna’s most recent record?

TS: The song I produced on there is called “Complicated,” and I’ve just seen her grow tremendously. “Complicated” is a difficult song to sing — it is very high and pretty intense and she really showed me a lot by singing that record. People never think Rihanna is a great singer, but I promise you there is not a better person to deliver a great song and it doesn’t matter how high it is or how low it is — she can just get in there and rally make a record her own. The beauitful thing is even when we did “Umbrella,” everyone thought that song was for Britney, or this person, but after she sang that record it could absoultely be for no one else. The record is hers and she puts it right where it needs to be.

US: And she’s got a boyfriend too Matt Kemp. What was it like with him around?

TS: He wasn’t around, and there is a reason. I don’t do well with boyfriends coming to my sessions. I want to be the only man in the studio when it’s my girls. (laughs) Whether it’s Katy, Christina, Rhianna, Beyonce, I don’t want to see nobody’s man.

Us: I know you can’t talk about working on Beyonce’s upcoming album but I heard it through the grapevine. But why do her and Jay-Z make such a great couple?

TS: I just feel like they had it figured out. Relationships are between two people and not between you and your family or anybody else and by them being huge stars, relationships can become about you and the world and that is something that I have never seen them do. They just really carry themselves a certain way and their relationship is their relationship and that’s pretty much it. It’s so private and it’s so quiet, and that’s why people have the respect not to talk about them. They are unbreakable.

US: And finally T.I. You recorded his new album with him, which was obviously before he went to jail but when he got out the last time. So what was it like working with him during that time period?

TS:I have known T.I. for probably bout 10-15 years now, and it was different because of the elephant in the room. When he was working on an album, he definitely kept his positivity and was himself. He really didn’t put the mental stress out there. I felt sorry for him being put in that situation with his kids and his wife. I just wish him the best of luck.

US: Anything else you want to bring up in wrapping up? Anything I left out?

TS: The one big thing I probably want to say is that I will be launching my record label, Red Zone Records in early 2011 and we are really, really excited about that. I’m just really looking forward to writing more great records and being a part of the next generation’s greatest songs and just working our asses off.

Jessica reportedly has a fashion empire worth almost $1 billion, from all of her shoes, accessories, denim, swimwear, watches, and fragrances.

Jessica’s Curves Are Hot! 10 Things That Make Her Sexy

With a new Christmas album out, Jessica Simpson is one holiday present anyone would be happy to find under the tree.
-Laura Schreffler

Jessica Simpson isn’t just a pretty face with blond hair and big boobs. Nope, the newly engaged singer/reality star has way more depth than most of us give her credit for. But if it isn’t just her looks that makes Jess so sexy!
Read on to find out what makes this 30-year-old bombshell one of the most desirable women in the world.

1) She’s Curvy & Doesn’t Care!
In a world of pin-thin stick insects, Jessica is remaining true to her womanly shape – and will even wear completely unflattering high-waisted jeans to prove it!

2) Her Accent.
Jess is a sexy Southern girl through and through. Whether she’s singing or simply speaking, her voice is like a honey trap.

3) Her Taste In Men.
This 30-year-old bombshell prefers big, strapping hunks like ex-husband Nick Lachey and current fiancé Eric Johnson to scrawny hipsters or suited businessmen.

4) Just Like Us, She’s Made Man Mistakes.
We’ll just forget about John Mayer, shall we, Jess? We know you probably want to! Which brings us to #5….

5) She’s Sexual Napalm.
We’re not even really sure what that means, but for a man (Mayer again) to compare you to sex machine, you’ve got to be pretty damn good in bed. Just sayin’…

6) She Says Stupid Things, But Is Still A Millionaire.
‘Is chicken of the sea really chicken’ be damned – the girl is smart enough to know what’s going to make her a ton of moolah! Which brings us to #7…

7) She’s Currently Famous For Doing Nothing.
Has Jessica had a hit single or movie in years? No, she has not! Yet, she still manages to keep herself relevant, her name in the press and her face on magazine covers galore. Her finest work is her own hype… an estimated net worth of $100 million from her shoes, clothes and accessories. Impressive! And now with her Christmas album, she’ll be even more in-your-face than ever.

8 ) She Wears The Pants In Her Relationship.
At last – there’s a man who’s a lapdog to a woman! Jessica’s fiancé follows her around and caters to her every need – I bet he’d even hold her purse. Here’s to strong women!

9) She Knows All About The Price Of Beauty.
As the host of her own VH1 series, The Price of Beauty, Jess realized that she’s happy just the way she is. Seriously, is there anything hotter than self-confidence?

10) She’s Charitable.
As the International Youth Ambassador for Operation Smile, Jess teaches kids to believe in themselves and that they CAN change the world. Now THAT’S hot!


Jessica Simpson “Betrayed” By Eric Johnson?

“Jessica Betrayed!” screams an In Touch cover story about Jessica Simpson.

Among the discoveries about fiance Eric Johnson’s “secret past” the tab claims to have unearthed are that the former NFL player had a “fling with a cheerleader,” and that he “studied books to snag a rich woman.”

We’ll get to those in a moment.

First, according to In Touch’s cover story, Simpson “recently put [Johnson] on her payroll, giving him a title and salary – but without any real responsibility.”

“More disturbing still,” writes In Touch, “Jessica may be about to make the worst business decision of her life: no prenuptial agreement.”

The tab says that even though her dad, Joe, is “demanding” she get a prenup, Simpson is “refusing to listen.”

Time for Gossip Cop…

A source close to the couple confirms to us that Johnson is “NOT being paid by Jessica,” and “there will be a prenup” before the two wed.

But what about those allegations that he “studied books to snag a rich woman”?

Allegedly, and it’s not even confirmed, while Johnson was in college he read the book, “Smart Women Finish Rich,” a book that has absolutely nothing to do with snagging a rich woman, and everything to do with money management.

And as for the “fling with a cheerleader,” it’s a claim made by his ex-wife about an indiscretion Johnson may have had – as even In Touch notes – “back in high school.”

Seriously? Simpson feels “betrayed” because her fiance may have kissed another girl back in high school or read a book on financial planning?

Once again, the only ones “betrayed” are In Touch’s readers.

Jessica Simpson Building a $1 Billion Fashion Empire

With her southern charm and girl-next-door appeal, it’s hard to believe that Jessica Simpson is in fact a fashion powerhouse, sitting at the helm of a nearly $1 billion empire. But with retail sales of her successful lifestyle brand totaling $750 million this year, that is precisely what her line of shoes, accessories, denim, swimwear, watches and fragrances have turned the newly-engaged star into, reports WWD. And her secret, according to Vince Camuto, founder and CEO of Camuto Group, the main licensee for Simpson-branded merchandise, is her approachability. “People like her,” he tells WWD. “People look at her as a style icon.” So much so that Jess is broadening her brand even further, launching a contemporary sportswear line of stylish separates including jackets, woven and knit bottoms, as well as tops and dresses, all priced from $39 to $129. “This new sportswear line reflects my evolving style, which combines comfort, femininity and flirty fun,” Jessica said in a statement. The new collection will be available at more than 650 specialty and department stores throughout the U.S. and Canada starting in the fall of 2011.
