Everyone’s taking the news that Dallas Cowboy quarterback and celeb magnet Tony Romo proposed to his girlfriend Candice Crawford as a big slight on his ex-flame Jessica Simpson. Yeah, it can’t be great to see your ex put a ring on it when “it” isn’t your finger, but there’s a bigger story here, people. Let’s talk about the super awkward dating chain that Romo and Crawford’s union creates; let me break it down for you:
Candice Crawford is Chase Crawford’s sister; Chase Crawford dated Carrie Underwood; Carrie Underwood dated Tony Romo; and now Tony Romo is marrying Chace’s sister. Is it just me, or is this whole chain just making things super awkward for the Crawford family?
Of course the Simpson connections are strange too. First her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, gets engaged, then she gets engaged, then Romo gets engaged after breaking up with Simpson on her birthday. It’s like Jess’s own misfortune was everyone’s good luck charm, making this Romo news a huge vortex of awkwardness.
