Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Courtesy Deadspin this a.m., we're directed to the blog of none other than Robin "Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams" Leach. His, ahem, spywitnesses claim that Cowboys QB Tony Romo lost some $2.5 million on the Vegas green felt last weekend, which, apparently, mightily miffed Jessica Simpson. Writes Leach: "Insiders told me that one thing led to another and they wound up in a 'furious fight.'" Incidentally, the posting is far more endearing if you read it like Dana Carvey's impression of Leach on Saturday Night Live. --Robert Wilonsky Update: The Deadspin comments, 60 and growing, are even better than the original item. Like, this one: "I'm guessing Jessica is 'beyond words' quite a lot. Like, when somebody produces a shiny ball of tin foil." Or this one:

Jones: Tony, you shouldn't gamble like that.

Romo: Didn't you just offer Pacman Jones a multi-year contract?

Jones: Fair enough.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
