Sources tell TMZ Jessica is dating ex San Francisco 49ers tight end Eric Johnson. He last played for the New Orleans Saints back in 2008. Johnson split from his wife earlier this year, filing for divorce in February.

Simpson -- whose show, "The Price of Beauty," returns to VH1 in 2011 -- began dating Johnson in May.

A source tells us they are "very happy."

At least they were happy. Now that TMZ knows about them the cheating rumors will start and not stop until they can no longer take it. Another relationship ruined by gossip lies.

She's NOT FAT. She REAL, NORMAL size woman. Stop compairing her to anorexic hollywood. She still looks better than you. The guy is FUGLY though. She can do better.

It's always a great idea to date a guy who separated from his wife less than 6 months ago. Good luck with that.....

We ALL know he was married when they started dating. That's ALWAYS the way it is, despite what the PR people want you to believe.

Who cares? Isn't she happy in every relationship? What does his ex-wife do . . . I am sure Jessica will pick up on it, and try to do it better. Remember how she proved she was so much better than Carrie Underwood by putting out her own country album, and singing at county fairs around the country?? Ha!!

Wow, I knew EJ in college. That pic of him is hideous--he's way better looking in real life. I was shocked to read this though, I feel like he and his wife JUST got married (though to be fair, that could have been a couple of years ago). He doesn't even play anymore.

O/T Look at the picture of Megan & Brian on the front page. He's 5'11" or 6'0". She claims to be 5'6". No way. She's about 5'4".
