Jessica Simpson: Tony Romo is "First Person I've Spiritually Connected With"

Fame Pictures

Sigh. Why won't Jessica Simpson learn her lesson and keep her mouth shut about her relationship with Tony Romo? The last time Jess gushed about her man, she damn near lost him, and now she's doing it again in the September issue of Elle.

"Most of the guys I dated were captivated by my heart but they had different ways of trying to get to me," she tells the magazine. "Tony understands me. He appreciates my talent. He's the first person I've spiritually connected with."

Jessica credits Tony's unwavering support of her country music career as one of the reasons she's in love with him. "It's the cutest thing," she says. "He'll say, 'Jessica, 75 percent of the comments about your new single are favorable.'"

Not content with just gushing about the current man in her life, Jess opens up about her past relationships with John Mayer and ex-husband Nick Lachey as well.

"John [Mayer] believed in the Jessica Simpson that's within," Jessica says (side note: did she really just refer to herself in the third person?). "He cherished our love. He helped make me the woman I am today. John is going to be an amazing man for someone, but I know that I was supposed to be with someone else." Is it just us, but does it sound like Jessica is starting to talk in cheesy love song lyrics?

She may only have fond memories of John, but her divorce from Nick Lachey was a bit more devastating. "I was going through a lot of pain," she admits. "I didn't try anything to change my life other than dating different types of guys and conforming to their worlds. I thought I had to be artsier, more intellectual."

We're glad Jessica has found someone who she can be her ditzy self with, and if Tony is willing to put up with her blabbery mouth, then more power to them.
