Jessie James Decker is FaceTiming with her husband, Jets wide receiver Eric Decker. As stylists tease the country vixen’s bombshell hair and paint her eyes a sultry slate, she sweetly mocks Eric’s thick mustache (he’s growing it for Movember, the men’s health fund-raiser). He gives Jessie’s sizzling, camera-ready look a big thumbs up. She signs off with a dulcet “I love you.”

New York’s hottest new power couple are clearly smitten.

“I feel beautiful,” Jessie, 26, says of her photo shoot with Alexa, the first since she gave birth in March. “My husband likes my new butt, so it’s all good. I gained 55 pounds when I was pregnant, and I’ve almost lost it. I’ve got 10 pounds left to go, but I’m not pushing myself.”

Since moving to the city from Denver this past spring, the stars of the E! reality show “Eric & Jessie: Game On” have been turning heads and making headlines. The pair, who met through a mutual friend in April 2011, revel in sharing the spotlight. They married in June 2013, but not before their journey to the altar was captured for E! cameras.

Last winter, while pregnant with their daughter, the singer posed (wearing nothing but bubbles) with her husband for a risqué GQ spread, catapulting them further into the national spotlight.

Then came the move east to Morristown, NJ. After Eric, 27, wasn’t re-signed by the Denver Broncos, the Jets offered him a five-year, $36.25 million contract.

“We were so shocked by Denver not even asking Eric to come back,” Jessie says. “As soon as the Jets called, I was so excited that a team wanted him that badly and they were giving him so much respect. I was so happy.”

The couple was initially welcomed with open arms. But by fall, they saw just how tough playing in New York can be — especially when your team’s record is dismal.

“It’s been a really hard season,” Jessie told The Todd Show on WPLJ this week, talking about the effect of the Jets’ performance on her husband. “He’s been, I don’t wanna say depressed, but he’s been depressed.”

In October, Eric tweeted to Jets fans, asking them why they love Gang Green. He was immediately hammered by sarcastic tweets, and Jessie stepped in to defend him, calling some of the fans “haters.” The kerfuffle made sports news, including the back page of The Post, which ran the headline “Decked,” accusing Jessie of slamming Jets fans.

She was crushed by the charge.

“It’s just a little confusing, because I felt like I was misread and misquoted because I was frustrated that Eric was trying to do something nice,” she says. “And it turned into people attacking him. And I was frustrated with other fans of other teams. It wasn’t Jets fans — I, too, am upset that we’re not winning every game. I am with you.
I followed up that I love Jets fans.”

After being called “names that I have never even said in my life that were so perverse” on Twitter, Jessie deactivated her account for a few days.

“It was negativity that I didn’t need to look at, so I took it off for a little bit, let it die down, and I’m back in the game,” she says.

For now, she’s focused on co-hosting Season 4 of the reality series “Redneck Island” (which returns on CMT Thursday), continuing a series of YouTube makeup tutorials, posting intimate family snaps to her 1.2 million Instagram followers, and launching two fashion lines: a swimsuit collection this spring and a women’s clothing line next fall.

Not to mention soaking up life in the big city. The Georgia-raised singer and her husband do dinner dates at the West Village’s Commerce, her favorite restaurant in Manhattan. And she says the move to New York has inspired her next album, which she’ll write when they return to Nashville during the NFL’s offseason.

But don’t call her a city slicker just yet.

“I haven’t gone hillbilly rich, where you spend everything you have,” she says with a big laugh. The 5-foot-1 belle favors T.J. Maxx bargains and Gilt shoe sales to shopping sprees at Barneys or Bergdorf Goodman.

“I’ve never been a label-obsessed person. I indulge in shoes, but I rarely will ever buy full-price. The biggest indulgence I ever took part in is a Chloé bag,” she says of her “Marcie Medium Shoulder Bag,” which retails for $1,990. “I felt like I deserved it and [had] worked hard, so I went to the store and bought it. I didn’t wait for it to go on sale.”

She says her clothing line will embrace that down-home-with-a-touch-of-glam spirit.

“It’s not going to be a traditional, chic, fancy-shmancy clothing line,” says Jessie, with the faintest Southern lilt. “It’s going to be things that I would wear every day, like cutoffs and flannels. Red carpet is always fun, but you’re never going to see me on the street or in the grocery store in 6-inch heels. But I am always going to have big, fabulous hair and makeup.”

– Appearances From 2014 > September 03: Smirnoff Ice Hosts Ladies With Game Tailgate

USA Today: For The Win — As the wife of NFL player Eric Decker, Jessie James Decker has more than a little bit of expertise when it comes to tailgating. “I think the key is I like to make homemade food, you can make jambalaya, which is the quickest thing to put together,” she said. “If everyone has a little bit of that … and get some of your girlfriends and I mean it’s as simple as that.”

This year, Decker will be tailgating and cheering on her husband with a new team after the wide receiver signed a free agent deal with the Jets in the offseason. The transition to the new city, she said, has been easy.

“I’ve met everyone and everyone’s been phenomenal … “ she said. “Everyone’s so great and so friendly and so welcoming. I’ve already gone over to one of the other football wives’ homes and spent time with them.”

The singer spoke to For The Win before a “Ladies With Game” tailgating program launch in New York on Wednesday, where she’s partnering with Smirnoff Ice for what a preseason kickoff tailgate. The interview has been condensed below.

For The Win: What would you say the best city for tailgating is?

Decker: I haven’t tailgated yet in New Jersey or New York, I’m sure it’s going to be phenomenal. But if I had to speak from experience, I’d say New Orleans is the best city I’ve ever tailgated in.

For The Win: Just because of the jambalaya?

Decker: Jambalaya and that’s where my whole family is from so I’ve seen firsthand how everyone does it, and we do it right.

For The Win: Before he was suspended, [your husband’s former teammate] Wes Welker suffered his third concussion and many people urged him to retire. If Eric had three concussions, what would you tell him?

Decker: I think any wife would be really really concerned for their husband. I think every football player has their point when they’re ready to stop and … I’m not sure [of] Wes Welker’s situation, maybe he’s ready to keep going. Of course I would tell Eric to stop, but every situation is different and I’m not there anymore, we’re not Broncos anymore, so it’s really hard to say. But of course any wife would be concerned for her husband’s health.

For The Win: You also have a five-month old now. Is she all ready for the football season?

Decker: Oh she’s ready to go. We’ve got all of her little football outfits going on, we’ve got her soundproof earphones so it’s not too loud for her, she’s set. She’s ready to go see dad do his thing.

For The Win: Do all the football wives get ready together before the game? Was there a routine in [Denver]?

Decker: None of us would get ready together because we all had kids or you know we’re all so nervous but we would ride together because we all [lived] in the same area. We definitely would be sending each other selfies and say ‘ok what are you wearing or should we all match and wear the same leggings from Victoria’s Secret?’ We would definitely all be in this together and we’d all get to the parking lot together. We’re all typically late … but we definitely were all in this together and that’s the thing I love about it. All us football wives are together and it’s a sisterhood you can’t explain.

For The Win: Is there a hierarchy at all among football wives?

Decker: Not really. I didn’t really notice anything and unless somebody told me specifically I can’t know exactly what each football player does every time I arrive in a new city … [in Denver] as I was sitting with all of these women, I couldn’t tell whose husband belonged with who. So everyone is definitely on the same level, just kind of the same wife supporting her husband. I will say of course in Peyton Manning’s case, his wife Ashley was very busy but she would be. He’s a legend that probably has a lot going on and needs a strong wife to help with his busy schedule.

For The Win: Could you tell whose husband was who during the game? Or did you all sit their kind of quietly and white-knuckled?

Decker: Oh no, one of my best friends, Wesley Woodyard’s wife, Veronica … she was one to scream when her husband would tackle somebody and she had the loudest scream. We all just laughed and cheered on with her, she had the most enthusiasm it was amazing.

For The Win: Since your tailgate today is so focused on female fans and they’re such a big part of football, are you concerned at all or have you talked to your husband at all about the NFL’s response to domestic violence and how it will affect female fans?

Decker: You know we typically don’t talk about that. I don’t have much to touch on that. We keep it pretty positive believe it or not – I’m not just saying that for interview purposes – we keep it positive and if it’s not happening in our own backyard we just don’t really talk about it.
