Heaven forbid these women do without a man in their lives for longer than 5 seconds. She'll be kicking herself before long wasting her life on these Good Time Charlies.

EWWWW!!! hope he's got the money to support the lazy ass father of her's. It's a shame about his butter face. With the exception of Mayer, the rest have been good looking.
I wonder if the sexual napalm is just like her over lip syncing she used to do. I think she over acts in the sac too.
Mayer's so Gay! He's never know the difference.

Why should Jessica date a guy without baggage when she is divorced?

The only reason this is news is because she wants some attention, and wants to be linked to someone now that she's about to turn 30. It's bad enough that she's fat, but to be fat and turning 30 alone is even worse. Joe and Cindy Berger are pulling out all the stops for her.

Kind of creepy that he resembles her dad. Can't believe a year has gone by since Tony dropped her after refusing to dress up as Ken and her, Barbie, for last year's birthday. Of course, she has to be linked to another man before she turns 30. Kind of sad, when you think about it.

I am not going to insult the woman. However, I do think its a bit too soon to date a man that just filed for divorce the month before. That's stupid. He must not have loved his wife or needed time to find himself before jumping into the game again.

Deep down Jessica knows she peaked with Newleyweds, since then her marriage failed, her pop career failed, her acting career failed, and her country career failed. She couldn't even remember the words to her own songs at the chilli cookout!

About the only things Jessica has success with are clothing products. That's because all she has to do for that is sign her name to the contract and that doesn't take any talent. Any time she tries to do something that takes real talent she can't do it because there was no talent there to begin with.

She should think about getting married and starting a family and leaving Hollywood, despite her father telling her what a big star she was going to be, Hollywood just isn't in the cards for Jes. I read they already have to retool that pathetic show she just did with her annoying hairdresser "Price of Beauty"

Since the guy is just getting a Divorce he needs a hole to jump into Jessica I'm sure will be that hole since she's not a hole for Tony anymore!She's alway's been someone's hole since Nick got rid of her I think this is the way her Daddy wanted it!
