Since Jesica Simpson and Tony Romo have been dating, the public has been all up in their business.
Is she a curse to Romo’s team, the Dallas Cowboys? Is Papa Joe controlling the relationship?
However, the couple say they have allowed none of that negativity into their lives and insist they are stronger than their haters.
For the first time, Tony Romo opens up about Jessica and their relationship in the June issue of Vanity Fair, where Jessica graces the cover. He shows his admiration and love for Jessica without being sappy or looking p-whipped.
He says, “We’re very similar in that we both appreciate the hometown feel to a lot of things, and live our life like that. She comes to a ton of games. She’s a supportive girlfriend.”
Once the football season is over, Romo says he and Jess jut like to kick back, chill and enjoy each other. “A lot of people head to Vegas, go back to their hometowns, colleges, and stuff. I was just like, ‘Let’s rent a house and sit around and watch football.’ It seemed like a good decision. But when you’re in the public eye, things can be perceived differently.”
“You know, it’s very hard when you lose, because games are important, and so many people put so much time and effort in. It’s nice to have someone to come home to and try and make you feel better.”
Simpson chimes in, “That’s how the story goes. Can’t help it. But we don’t let it affect our relationship. If we did, we wouldn’t be together, because it happened at the very beginning. Dating the Cowboys quarterback comes with hype, the fans, the bloggers, but I’ve never dated a guy that was more simple. I’m always there for him after a game, and he knows he has me to come home to.”
