Back when they were dating, John Mayer felt Jessica Simpson should be seen and not heard. He liked the way Jessica looked but wasn’t really interested in what she had to say. If fact he would rather her not say anything.
“John used to tell Jess all the time, ‘I’m really attracted to your spiritual side,’ ” a friend tells us. “He’d tell her that every time she opened her mouth to speak. It was a nice way of basically saying, ‘Just sit there and be pretty, and don’t ruin it with talk.’ The sad thing is she started to tell people, ‘I’m working on being more spiritual,’ and then just sit there quietly.”
I mean I can’t completely blame John Mayer for this. Back when Nick and Jessica were on “Newlyweds” and were out having a romantic dinner, there were a few times she ruined the mood for me. They would be in a beautiful place enjoying the scene and then she would come out and say the dumbest f’ing thing.
