It’s that time of year. Jessica Simpson has been bitten by the bug — the love bug that is. And the singer/fashion designer wants everybody to know she and Eric Johnson are most definitely in love, RadarOnline.com can report.
“As far as Eric and I go, we’re just best friends. He’s my dude! I love him,” Simpson told People.
Simpson and ex-football player Eric Johnson have been dating since May and have taken their love around the globe – even celebrating her birthday together in romantic Italy.

Now they’re planning on spending Thanksgiving together in New York. “We’re all gonna be in New York,” she told People. “I’m gonna be on a [Macy's parade] float. It’s not always the best way to spend a Thanksgiving, but it’s a great way to celebrate. So, maybe I’ll just have all families on the float.”
Jessica’s highly successful shoe line is sold at Macy’s and she’s featured in the department store’s TV ads.
The singer can use some time off. Simpson has been busy performing songs from her upcoming Christmas album for a PBS special to air Thanksgiving as well.
“He’s the one for me right now! I’m very happy, I’m in a great place and if right now could last forever, I’d take it,” she says.
