Is Jessica Simpson Engaged to a Vegan?

Published by PETA.

I know I’m not in her target demographic, but she’s starting to grow on me, this Jessica Simpson—not only because she put up a good fight for Mondo during the infuriating season finale of Project Runway but also because she’s shown a willingness to give a vegan diet a try. Now, reports suggest that her diet might stick, thanks to the influence of her new fiancé, former NFL player Eric Johnson, who is apparently a vegan.

Not only has Jessica been experiencing the joys of tofu, she’s also apparently learning to cook vegan dishes to share with Eric, who may be planning to open a chain of vegan fast-food restaurants.

If true, that’s not only cool but also instructive: Our day-to-day activities and interactions offer as many chances to get the word out about ways to help animals as organizing a huge public protest!
