John Mayer and Jessica Simpson at the beach in Australia – kissing, frolicking, and playing despite the obvious pappy presence capturing every “romantic” gesture.

So you tell me: is this for real or is this for show?

People Magazine – no surprise – is providing full details about how in love they truly are, with eyewitness reports of constant PDA and genuine devotion. Others who saw them arriving at the airport however have written me to say that the two seemed awkward and uncomfortable without any of the aforementioned chemistry…which is why some are still convinced Papa Joe is behind the Romance.

And if John’s Shame Face is any indication, I’m inclined to believe it. I"m telling you Hollywood, relationships are staged more often than you think .
