It was there, swimming in the water just waiting for someone to pounce on it and finally US Weekly took the bait. To me this was better than when Jennifer Aniston holds her hands on her stomach. If you will recall, on Monday I wondered why no tabloid had caught on to the fact that Jessica Simpson was in the same room with Tony Romo and his new girlfriend. No one. It was like crickets.
Then, light bulb. Here is how I imagine the conversation going to at US.
Staffer 1 - ZOMG!!!! Do you know like Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo were at the same party over the weekend?
Staffer 2- Well did they talk?
Staffer 1 - Who cares. They were there. Together.This is so exciting. I think I just peed.
Staffer 2 - Well what can we say they talked about?
Staffer 1 - Well, it was awkward and it was for five minutes. Oh, let's make it on the balcony. That sounds romantic even if Tony's girlfriend and her brother were there.
Staffer 2- OK, and to cover ourselves we will have a source who will say it wasn't awkward. Then we are right no matter what.
Staffer 1 - That is a lot of people on that balcony.
