Jessica does an interview about Dukes of Hazzard here.
Here’s a bit of it:
Immediately when I found out that I had the part I was like, ‘OK, this is it.’ It’s the best to be able to have something to work towards, otherwise I’ll stick to fried food and Taco Bell. (She laughs) But to have a goal is awesome. So I ate my last piece of chocolate cake when I found out, and ever since I’ve tried to cut sugar out of my diet, except fruit. But pretty much I just eat health and I work out close to two hours every day.
I want to do the romantic comedies. You know, the stuff that Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts or Reese Witherspoon would choose, of course. But I also love the movies that movie you and make you cry. So, whether it’s a drama, I don’t know. I’m up for anything. I don’t know if I’d be any good as a coked-out drug addict. (She laughs) That’s kind of hard to identify with, but maybe one day, you never know. (She laughs)

“I didn’t start feeling comfortable in my own skin until I was 20. That’s when you begin to accept your flaws because you can’t change them.
Before that I had notes taped on my mirror saying, ‘you’re beautiful in this skin’. I told myself that every day and eventually I got married and fell madly in love with my husband who loves every inch of me. I realised I didn’t have to compete with anybody and people liked me for me. Mess-ups and all.
One thing that drives me crazy about myself is that I lose everything. I’m a disaster. And I watch the show and cringe - could I say, ‘I’m so tired’ any more?!”

In Touch magazine reports that 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey is said to be furious with Paris Hilton after the heiress allegedly exchanged e-mails with a gossip reporter about his wife Jessica Simpson trying to hook up with Justin Timberlake, apparently with no justification, and with Lindsay Lohan about drug use.
“[Paris has] been jealous of Jessica for a long time,” Lachey reportedly fumed to a pal. That jealousy apparently was fueled by Lachey dating Hilton before dumping her in 1998. And a former friend of Hilton added that she “has a pattern of spreading rumors.”
