Jessica Simpson is reported to be spending her third wedding anniversary apart from Nick Lachey - she’s meant to be in Nairobi, Africa, with her dad and Cacee Cobb for Operation Smile. They’ll then go on safari in Kenya… without Nick too.
A spokesperson said: “Nick will be unable to join Jessica on the trip because of work commitments in Los Angeles.”
I’m not going to repeat the latest saga about Nick and Jessica - I’m so tired of all the rumours but I bet this is nothing compared to how they feel. The media tears people like them down then says, “see, I told you so” when it happens. I hope that Nick and Jessica can escape somewhere for a while and rediscover why they fell in love in the first place and forget about all the madness around them. I pray that Jessica remembers her faith and that fame, money and all that stuff won’t go to their heads.
Jessica’s hoping to land another movie role (even if it’s not likely) - this time as Pam, the wife of Bobby in the remake of Dallas! More than that, her dream star to play Bobby opposite her would be none other than Mr Brad Pitt! Mmmm, I’d go see that movie!!!
John Travolta is the favorite to take on the role of J.R. Ewing, but both Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner are also in the running.
Meanwhile, the identity of the actress to portray Sue Ellen is also uncertain. Catherine Zeta-Jones is looking likely, although there are also the possibilities of Demi Moore and Jennifer Lopez stepping in.
Drew Barrymore and Reese Witherspoon are the probable options for the role of Pamela, (Jess is probably way too young for the role) Jessica will likely get to battle Lindsay Lohan, and Mandy Moore to play Lucy.
Finally, Matthew McConaughey and Owen Wilson are being rumored as in line to play Bobby Ewing.
Casting is not expected to be officially announced until a rewrite of the script has been completed.

Aww, how sweet
“People always ask if there is competition but we are very different people and we just adore each other. Both of us like each other’s music. Jessica told me the other day that she listens to my CD very night before she goes on stage. That was cool.”, said Ashlee.
“Ashlee, my mom and I are all best friends.”, said Jessica.

Oh man - I don’t gamble and don’t like it but I got sent info on how they expect that you’ll soon be able to bet on if Nick and Jessica’s marriage will break up. What is this world coming to?
“Gambling911.com fully anticipates one of its sponsors to come forward and offer Jessica Simpson/Nick Lachey separation odds,” said Thomas Jensen, Marketing and Media Coordinator for Gambling911.
Reality TV/pop star couple Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are desperately fighting fresh reports that their marriage is over, after the actress turned up solo and without her wedding ring to two recent events, reports sfgate.com.
The coupleâ€™s marriage has been at the center of speculation for months, but the pop stars have stood firm with rebuttals.
“Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson continue to lie to the American public, even while they got together to sing “America the Beautiful” before Sunday’s Washington Redskins-Chicago Bears game,” Benza wrote in his weekly The Great Indoors column for Gambling911.com. “America might be beautiful, but there is nothing beautiful about the state of the alleged singersâ€™ marriage. Nick showed up at the Stuff Style Awards in Hollywood the other night with a gang of hot girls, one of which admitted to a friend of mine that the newlyweds had literally not seen each other since the MTV Video Awards on Aug. 28.”
Gambling911.com believes that the first online bookmaker to post odds on Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey splitting up will list “Yes” as the favorite.
“We also anticipate a number of connected props odds,” Costigan stated. “Anything from What will ultimately be listed as the Cause for Separation and/or divorce, to Who Gets the House. It would not surprise any of us to see odds on a pregnancy thrown in for good measure with a sub wager of whether or not it is his.”
This was on the headlines this morning when I woke up. I can’t believe it. Someone pinch me and say it’s another silly rumour…
I feel like it’s all been a big disappointment - I know they’re real people and not all marriages last but only recently they were saying everything’s fine and all. I had so wanted to believe that they would show the media wrong and last the distance together. My worst fear is that Pastor Joe will think Jessica’s more marketable now… ugh.
UPDATE: OMG my radio station totally misreported it!!!!! Here’s what I found on E!
“Nick and Jessica have not separated,” Simpson’s rep, Brad Cafarelli, stated to E! on the couple’s behalf. “Rumors to the contrary are simply not true.”
Simpson’s ever-present papa, Joe, also denied Wednesday that his daughter’s marriage has ended.
“Not true,” Joe Simpson told E! via email of the rumors surrounding the not-so-newlywed twosome
PHEW! Sorry guys!!!
