This week, Jessica Simpson announced her engagement to boyfriend Eric Johnson. While we’re happy for Jess and unsure what this means for the future of magazine cover stories, there’s one other major factor in this story: Jessica’s dad, Joe. He is a reigning member of the Bad Stage Parents Club alongside Michael Lohan, and he is known for saying all kinds of weird and inappropriate things about Jessica in the press. (He has talked way too much about his daughter’s boobs for my taste. Or, hopefully, anyone’s.) If you were Eric, would you run screaming away from a potential father in law from hell, or would you grin and bear it for the one you love?
