Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson host co-ed bachelor/bachelorette bashEschewing traditions like strippers and lewd party favors, Jessica Simpson and her fiance Eric Johnson celebrated their impending nuptials with a combined bachelor/bachelorette party on June 8. One of Jessica's pals tells People the couple was more interested in "a great night out with their friends and family" than indulging in any "naughtiness."Instead, they invited about 40 people -- including members of their families and the wedding party -- to the Warwick in Los Angeles for an evening of what the friend described as "fun toasts, dinner and dancing."Simpson's childhood friend Stephanie Terblanche, who will serve as a bridesmaid on the big day, explained: "They didn't want a traditional bachelor/bachelorette where they go off and do their own thing because our group of friends is so close we just wanted to all be together.""This is what we would do anyway," she added. "We would all go out, and I think that this speaks for the group. If we are not going to be at someone's house hanging out playing beer pong, this is the closest thing to it."The happy couple is expected to tie the knot over the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
