Tony Embarrassed By Jessica’s Drunken Ways
Romantic relations between Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo appear to be absolutely done and dusted, but according to insiders, the surprise break-up was largely a result of peer pressure from Romo’s pals and Jess’s love of adult beverages.
"Jessica would get really drunk and obnoxious, it was out of control. She would be sprawled everywhere with her head on his lap and the look on Tony’s face said it all," an insider told Tarts. "He was so embarrassed in front of all the guys and his teammates were really harsh on him over it. Breaking up was a really hard decision for Tony to make."
We’re also told that the Dallas Cowboy really did love the pop princess and "fought for her" with his skeptical friends, but in the end, it got to a point where it just didn’t make sense for him to stay in the relationship.
But in Simpson’s defense, a friend from her camp told Tarts that she doesn’t drink too much, and that there were numerous issues going on between them before Romo said his goodbyes.
"She was devastated and it did come as a shock, however," added the source.
Speaking of shocks, Miss Simpson and her BFF/hair stylist Ken Paves were caught in the 6.6 earthquake that rocked Japan on Wednesday.
"We just had another earthquake and @kenpaves fell to the ground," Jessica tweeted. "We couldn't stop laughing. He flew out of his boots. SO funny!!"
Jon Gosselin to Host Sin City Pool Party
Jon Gosselin is cashing in on his newfound "fame" in a totally new way - hosting pool parties in Vegas.
Pop Tarts has confirmed that on Saturday, August 29, the reality star and aspiring fashion designer has agreed to spend the day at MGM Grand's famous WET REPUBLIC for some R&R before attending MAGIC, a premier trade event in the fashion industry where he'll plug his fashion designs.
Hmmm, we're sure he won't be short of bikini-clad ladies trying to score their own fifteen minutes.
Nia Vardalos Ordered to Lose 40 Pounds To Stay Alive
Having just shed 40 pounds, Nia Vardalos looks simply stunning, but unlike most starlets who lose the lard to cater to Tinseltown’s obsession with skin and bone, the "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" sweetheart shed her weight due to serious health concerns.
"I did it because I needed to live, actually. My doctor said I had a high blood sugar problem, and diabetes runs in my family, so that was the last thing that I expected to hear out of his mouth," Vardalos told Tarts. "He said you have to lose weight because it's not good now, so I was really angry because I don't like being told to do anything. But I just thought, ‘alright, I'll do it’ and through diet and exercise I did it."
Meanwhile Vardalos’s "I Hate Valentine’s Day" co-star John Corbett (better known by "Sex and the City" fan as Aiden - the one Carrie cheated on) admitted he met longtime lover, actress Bo Derek, on his first (and last) blind date.
"Blind dates are making a comeback. A friend of mine is into his third year of a blind date setup, a few of my friends have been on blind dates," Corbett added.
