Singer and Reality TV star, Jessica Simpson’s country album has reached number one, but she is more proud of letting Tony Romo into her life. Last Thursday when she attended a Nina’s Night Out benefit for the Rape Crisis Center at the Palms Casino Resort’s Pearl Theatre, she told PEOPLE, “Tony is a great quarterback, but he’s a better boyfriend. I’m seriously proud of myself for letting him into my life.”
Jessica joked that Romo, “was my Monday this week,” in reference to her song about him, “You’re My Sunday,” and the Dallas Cowboys’ huge win over the Philadelphia Eagles on ESPN’s Monday Night Football a few days ago.
Jessica feels comfort being with Romo and said, “Through all the chaos and torment and everything I go through, I can lay in his arms and finally rest.”
What is it like for Tony to have Simpson as his girlfriend? Jessica joked with PEOPLE about that and told them, “To be my man, you have to put up with a lot,” said the singer. “I toot under the sheets, I spend a lot of money and I can belch the ABC’s.”
Jessica also talked about the fact that she sometimes forgets the lyrics to her own songs and during the 70 minute set featuring her new album, Do You Know, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s country music chart this week, Simpson forgot the lyrics to one of her best-known pop songs, “With You.”
She had the same problem whe she sang on Good Morning America and had to start the song over again. Afterwards, she said, “I’ve been singing that song for about 70 years and I forgot the lyrics. At least you guys knew them.”
Could the forgetfullness be due to fatigue? Jessica will be performing this weekend at the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona, California and has been to 12 states in the past week promoting her new album.
“I’m exhausted, but it’s worth it. I can’t believe I have the No. 1 album in country right no,” she said.
