“Eva Longoria is urging her pal, Jessica Simpson, to change her wedding date!” begins a breathless story from In Touch.
The mag says Longoria, who knows Simpson through their mutual hairstylist Ken Paves, believes her friend is making a huge mistake marrying Eric Johnson on November 11, 2011 (11-11-11), because she and Tony Parker tied the knot on July 7, 2007 (7-7-7), and are now divorced.
We’re not making this up.
The tab says Simpson “feels it’s a lucky day that will get the new marriage off to the perfect start,” but Longoria “couldn’t disagree more!”
A supposed “friend” of the “Desperate Housewives” actress claims, “Eva’s superstitious and feels her friend chose the wrong date,” noting, “She literally called Jessica and told her to pick another day to get married.”
Simpson’s alleged 11-11-11 wedding date is a rumor started by In Touch (which first wrongly claimed the nuptials were taking place on June 11, 2011), and the star’s rep has repeatedly told Gossip Cop that no date has been set.
In any case, a rep for Longoria tells Gossip Cop the tab’s tale is “completely untrue.”
