"Love my ladies!!!" Simpson posted on her Twitter account during the night along with a group photo. "Wish I could be with them everyday of my life. Laughter is wonderful :)"

Tony Romo showed a bit of post-split wear and tear over the weekend.

Jessica Simpson's former beau scored second place to former major league baseball player Rick Rhoden at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Tahoe.

Could the breakup be affecting the quarterback's game?

Romo insists he's working hard to stay focused. "The more stuff you've got in your mind, probably the less successful you're going to be," he told PEOPLE. "So the only thing I think about is the task at hand. When you let your mind wander or think about other things, you're setting yourself up for failure. So I just try to stay focused. I've done a pretty good job of that this week."
