Why Jessica Simpson & Tony Romo Broke Up

Why is Jessica Simpson crying in her cowboy boots, over another relationship that went nowhere?

Lots of reasons, apparently. First, was the talk that Jess was so upset over her ex John Mayer's new romance with Jennifer Aniston, that boyfriend Tony Romo just had enough of her caring about it. Now, one of Tony's good college buddies told the Chicago Sun Times that the QB really had no idea what it was going to be like to date someone as popular in the tabs as Jess. Yes, he did have a short romance with other starlets, namely Carrie Underwood and Sophia Bush, but neither of these girls demand the media's attention the way Jessica does.

Then there was the issue of Papa Joe. Jessica's dad had, once again, been omnipresent in Jess & Tony's lives and Tony was sort of like "what is up with that." According to his pal, Joe had ''not only telling Jessica every move to make, but now has begun to offer unsolicited advice to Tony on his career, endorsement opportunities and things that have nothing to do with him dating Jessica.''

That man needs to back off!

Finally, sources say that Tony was not on board with this "future husband" stuff that Jess had been selling in recent interviews, and was irked that she was announcing to the world that he would be the father of her children.

Word on the street is that Papa Joe has asked Tony to still show up at Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson's wedding this weekend, to save face, but it is unclear if he will.

Why would Jessica want that? How awkward -- she won't have any fun, and will have to be reminded of their breakup forever, when the photos from the wedding get out. I suggest she get cozy with a bottle of champagne and check out the rocker groomsmen - there has to be one wearing less eyeliner than she is to spend the evening with.
