Don’t blame Jess for Cowboys loss, says her host at game

Is Jessica Simpson the succubus who robbed Tony Romo of his precious winning essence? Is she the Cooler – Kim Basinger ‘s Memo Paris to Robert Redford‘s The Natural?Not according to her host at Sunday’s Cowboys-Eagles game at Texas Stadium. Jessica, her parents, Tina and Joe, and her grandparents were all guests of beer distributor Barry Andrews, whose stadium suite is almost exactly next door to Jerry Jones‘ 50-yard-line owner’s suite.
“I think that bandage around Tony Romo’s thumb at the end of the game had a lot more to do with the outcome than the guest in our box,” says Mr. Andrews. “We really enjoyed having her whole family with us.”
Barry’s other guest was Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, but frankly, who cares?
What was it like hosting Jessica?
“I thought I was through with the paparazzi trailing me,” Barry jokes. “Don’t ever doubt the power of television. By the time I got from the stadium to the car, I already had 17 messages on my cellphone. Today at the office, I’ve been buried with calls from people from all over the country.”
The common link is Barry’s son, Blake Andrews, who is friends with both Tony and Jessica. Three years ago, Blake’s Highland Park home was the scene of Jessica’s 24th birthday party, which was filmed for her MTV reality show with then-husband Nick Lachey.
Jessica as a Succubi…
No thank you…
