What Would You Do?


Interesting question here. There are reports that Jessica Simpson's new boyfriend was supposed to enter the Wharton School Of Business in Pennsylvania this fall which is a pretty tough place to get admitted. However, he has decided that Jessica is way more important and has decided to skip going back to school and not leave her side for an instant. I mean, where else is going to get someone to spend $5K a day on him? Plus, it is way on the other side of the country and if he is not next to her everyday she might find someone else to lavish hotel rooms and gifts on.

So, what happens when they inevitably break up? Can he get his place back in the school? Do you give up going back to school and your dream of a business career for someone you just met two months ago? Is she telling him to not go back to school? What would you do if you were this guy?

Sometimes you can defer admission to cooleges, where you've been accepted, but you can't defer gold digging!

Priscila said...

well, maybe he truly loves her, what about that??

delilah said...

sexual napalm...gets you every time!

sometimes you can defer-usually for emergencies...tits aren't emergencies though

RocketQueen said...

lol @ Daveb! Word.

Regardless of his relationship, I see no reason to skip going back to school - can't you have both? I guess not, not if you're truly putting all your eggs in one basket.
Hell, for all we know, Jessica *asked* him not to go. *shakes head*

Icecat said...

Jeez, I hope this ins't her idea. She should be encouraging him to go... I'm afraid, once again, Jess is going to get her heart broken.

jax said...

Enty,if this was the other way around you wouldn't say boo about what she spends her money on. Hello, look at Clooney?

Sounds like this guy has stuff going on for himself if he's getting into Wharton.

RocketQueen said...

But jax, Clooney is generally considered a pretty smart businessman. Can we say the same about Jessica? I think honestly people just WORRY about her.

Syd said...

He's gonna ride this gravy train for as long as he can.

fordellcastle said...

I'd go to Wharton. She can afford to come visit any time she wants to. Hell, she could buy a house there. If he is letting the other head do the thinking and decision making, then Wharton didn't lose much. I hope a much more worthy student gets his spot. Her money won't last forever, especially with her father and hangers on getting a cut of it. I see her career fading into nothing. He can make more than she'll give him in the first year or so after graduation. Plus, he'll have his freedom from the whole nutjob Simpson family. Beauty fades, but dumb is forever. She is fading fast.

Wharton is notoriously hard to get in to... So this guy is not dumb (regardless of his athletic prowess, he still had to EARN a spot there)... If he gives it up for Sexual Napalm I will be convinced he paid someone to complete his undergrad for him...

NO HO is worth giving up Wharton for, no one.

Heidi said...

Deferral is really common in grad school professional programs and if they aren't giving him money to go (scholarships/stipend)they probably won't care. He may get a one year deferral and then be asked to reapply.

Maybe he's interested in the entertainment management and realizes the school of Papa Joe will be more lucrative then an ivy MBA

jess said...

Maybe he's waiting for 6 months...see what happens. He can go in January. I mean they save you the spot, right?

Sonia in MO said...

Run, kid...run to that school and sit your rear in a classroom ASAP! In 30 years this will all be a moot point and you'll have nothing to show for it but a few faded tabloid magazines - and if Jessica is "the one" she should wait. Sadly, though... that isn't going to happen.

What I would not give to have the opportunity to do my education all over again. And to have that opportunity with Wharton....

Terri said...

Hmm....he's not a strong person if he puts his important needs (like future earnings) aside for someone. If it's meant to be it will all work out. Sounds like he's whipped.

sunnyside1213 said...

He may look like an idiot and sound like an idiot, but don't let that fool you. He is an idiot.

Just Another Blonde said...

With the caveat of, I say this as a bitter MBA student who tried to get into Wharton and a couple others and couldn't. I'm pretty happy where I ended up though

Anonymous said...

Getting side-track is not a good idea and like someone said what happens if they break-up.

Baka Neko said...

just because he said it is because of Jessica does not mean that it is. Just because he got in does not mean he will be great at it. Maybe he was using Jessica as a reason but he was afraid that he'd fail so he didn't try?

nancer said...

is this guy even divorced yet?

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I'd choose school, otherwise I'd probably always secretly resent that person.

M said...

Well if he nixes Wharton and gets knocked up by Jessica, he's set for life. Oh, wait...

Clanger said...

He's an idiot to pass up a chance like Wharton at UPenn. Give up world class education that will take you places for.....hmmmm, surely ending up a pawn in the Pimpa Joe game....

jax said...

he's only considered smart because he pays the right beards.

mazshad said...

Come on you guys - Jax's comment is right on ! And she I believe does have some business savvy, she's apparantly worth a fortune from her endoresements and doesn't need to do movies. If he chooses to defer Wharton whatever it is, so be it. Double standards in play here. - Now if he doesn't go to this place at all - then he's foolish, but I'm rooting for Jess to find real love - she seems like a decent person !

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

He's not worthy of Wharton if he passed it up to be with that stupid bitch.

I know certified geniuses who couldn't get into that school. The one Wharton MBA I do know is spectacularly successful. She touches something, it turns to gold.

He miscalculated. Jessica's earning power is dropping with every passing year. Wharton was the better call for his future. He's a damn fool.

Icecat said...

LOL @ Meir :P

jen said...

My friend gave up a soccer scholarship for his girlfriend - it was in the States and he didn't want to leave her. Fifteen years later, are they still together? Of course not. Hell, two years later, were they still together? No. Did he ever get another chance or play soccer professionally? No. I will NEVER understand people giving up something so important as education or scholarship opportunities. If they want to be together they'll find a way. SCHOOL, BOY! THAT'S YOUR ANSWER! LOL

captivagrl said...

Marry her, move to Philadelphia and just tell her it's New York.

Wharton+Napalm+$$$

svd said...

*smacks forehead*

Goodgrief said...

I think this shows how stupid he really is. He probably told admissions that he is currently bangin Jessica Simpson and he has to go where his dick goes, and right now it is in California with Jessica, so maybe later.

RocketQueen said...

@captivagrl - hilarious!

Claire Marie said...

Wharton probably seemed like a good idea when he had no job and no wife. It's all good though ... A more deserving applicant will get his spot instead.

Lisa (not original) said...

The resentment of having to choose between Wharton and "true love" will eat this relationship up.

Patty said...

She is killing his brain cells through osmosis! I can see her whining for him not to go. She comes off as pretty needy.

Jessica said...

If I were her I would insist he go to school, but then again, I know where tuna comes from.

CaliGirlinVA said...

Absolutely ridiculous. Sure, the expensive trips, etc are all shiny and wonderful but its gonna end at some point---then where will he be? Education comes first. If the relationship fails, there will be no resentments.

Related somewhat: Monica Turner (nee Steele) put off her pediatrics residency for years when she caught the Mike Tyson gravy train. My friends who knew her from med school said she was a major gold digger.

sunnyside1213 said...

if she really cared about him, couldn't she live in PA?

Seachica said...

Wharton's policy about deferring admission:
"We allow admitted candidates to defer enrollment by 1 year for extenuating personal circumstances beyond the student's control. Send all defer requests in writing to the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid after you have matriculated into the program."

I don't think dating Jessica Simpson would be out of his control, so he's putting his Wharton admission in jeopardy.

I bet he's counting on the fame of being with her to help him start his own career that will be as lucrative as any Wharton MBA fed career. Which is entirely possible. To get into the entertainment industry, you get to start in the mailroom even IF you have a Wharton MBA. The experience he gets from the entertainment industry may give him just as much of a boost as an MBA. Consulting can be the same thing - look at Chelsea Clinton, who sure didn't need an MBA to get into a top consulting firm. Her fame was credential enough. Finance is a different story, however. If he wants to go into that, he's an idiot if he doesn't go to Wharton.

College education + celebutante = 0.

Cancan said...

I was accepted to a study abroad program in Paris my junior year and backed - something I had wanted to do so badly that I had written my college essays about it. My then-boyfriend talked me out of it and I stayed home. Six months later he beat the hell out of me - I ended up in the hospital and have visible scars 20+ years later.

So, yeah, choose Wharton. Biggest regret of my life.

LeeshaLou said...

He should watch the movie An Education

IKnowTheSecret said...

I'd go to school if I were him.

Julie said...

LOL i love the movie an education. i asked my husband to get it for me, he's like "wtf too artsy" grrr LOL

Tenley said...

? Sounds like he's already made a CEO-worthy business decision. (It would only be rhetorical at this point and level to ask is it the right one.)

Meg said...

LOL @ daveb

Damn, @CanCan. Glad you are ok now though! :(

@Veg Mommy - TOTALLY. That was such a GREAT movie. I want my niece to watch this so she stops putting her stupid bf over school.

He needs to choose school!!! He needs a back up in case one day her money runs out (if its true love).

HannahPalindrome said...

Who turns down Wharton?!?

What.An.Idiot!

ChasingHeaven said...

For whatever reason, he's not ready.

It's best to reapply or defer for a later time than to half heartedly make an attempt and fail because you tried it when you weren't 100% ready.

I find it hard to believe this is his one and only shot at this school. School will always be there and if it's not this one there are other well respected schools to earn a degree.

Robert said...

@CanCan: I'm sorry to hear about what happened to you. I've tried to stop beating myself up for the things I did/didn't do because somebody talked me into/out of them. It takes time.
