Referenced in last week’s post, Fingers Crossed for Round 2: Nick Lachey + Vanessa Minnillo are Engaged!, I think it’s time to rewind our wardrobes back to ’05 and whip out the Team Jess / Team Nick tees all over again!  That’s right, my little chick-a-dees, you heard it here first… 

After a down-on-one-knee weekend, it appears Nick Lachey’s ex-wife, Jessica Simpson, will also be joining the ranks of current celebutantes preparing to get their bride on in the near future!  According to E! Online reports, Simpson, 30, recently accepted the proposal of NFL free agent, Eric Johnson, 31, after five brief months of courting.  While some may speculate it is a pretty quick draw engagement - and mayhaps even hurried by Lachey and Minnillo’s recent big news -  the couple’s rep reports the two couldn’t be happier!

And good for Jess.  Poor thing hasn’t always had the easiest time with love, the media or life in general; so, if she’s happy, we’re happy.  She even took the higher road when she appeared On-Air with Ryan Seacrest and made the following statement when asked about her ex-love’s new engagement:

“I am extremely, extremely happy for him.  Our [Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey] relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa.  I do, and I wish them all the best.”  (Jessica Simpson, On-Air with Ryan Seacrest)

My only question… Which one’s gonna use this as their wedding song?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?  Talk abuot awwwwkward.
