Jessica makes me laugh. Here’s her latest cute funny quote:
“I think when my mum had me, I came out wearing high heels. I go to the beach in high heels. I walk around my house in high heels.”
I wish I got used to wearing high heels - my feet start hurting after a while. Hey, but whatever works for you Jess

I’m sorry but when is it time for Jessica Simpson to ditch her dad as her manager and move out from the influence of her parents. Sometimes it just seems like Jessica Simpson is a 16 year old who’s parents get to make all the decisions for her (and clean up her mess) still.
I’m referring to a recent photo shoot that Jessica did for OK magazine where she was apparently photographed lying on a bed just wearing lingerie while a hunky male model was putting on his clothing in the background (with obvious implications).
The story goes that her dad, Joe Simpson (infamous for comments about Jessica’s breasts) thought it was a great idea but her mom Tina Simpson thought it’d be a bad move for Jessica’s nice-Christian-girl image and it made it look like a slut. (Hello, where was her mom while she filmed the Dukes of Hazzard video? Or the Public Affair clip for that matter.)
Rumour has it that the parents had a rather heated argument about it, to which her mom ended up winning. Others are speculating that her cover photo for the album has also been made less raunchy. I’m not so sure about the cover but one things for sure: Jessica seems to still be under her parents finger. When will she tell them to rack off, she’s a grown, divorced woman?

Be sure to check out “The View” on ABC on September 5th when Jessica Simpson is going to be a guest on the show - no doubt she’ll be talking about her brand new album, “A Public Affair”, which will have launched a few days earlier.
There will be a tonne of other appearances that Jess will be making and I’ll let you know about them as they are announced!

I’ve been watching on Amazon lately to see when they’re updating the cover image for Jessica’s album, A Public Affair. People were complaining that they’ve got the old image but today it’s been updated:
It reminds me of a J Lo photo shoot for some reason. It’s a little strange seeing Jess in such a casual t-shirt for the photo but she looks wonderful.
What do you think of the album cover?
Everywhere I go, I keep hearing about “Hollywood’s newest couple”. Perhap’s it’s because Nick’s single features Vanessa taking Jessica’s role that it keeps cropping up but I’m sceptical. I find it hard to believe the tabloid rumours and until I see or hear it from the people involved myself. I still find it strange about Brad and Angelina - even though they’ve had a baby together - because I haven’t seen an interview with them professing their love for one another and saying they’re a couple.
Do you think Nick and Vanessa are actually a couple, or is it just tabliod rumours which aren’t true - or they’re distorting what’s really going on?
The latest rags have reports of Nick supposedly making out with Vanessa at a club called “Hyde” last week. And, like in the soaps, guess who is meant to have also been in the club? Jessica and her friends having a drink. An “insider” revealed that “Jessica froze in horror.”
- If they are a couple, so be it (I find it strange though)
- Why should Jessica freeze in horror? She divorced Nick, she’s flaunting her body and being rather raunchy in her new videos. In all her interviews she says she’s moved on.
What do you think?
Watch out for Jessica on August 20th when she hosts the Teen Choice Awards 2006 (you can still vote for the awards!) with her co-star in Employee of the Month, Dane Cook.
Teen Choice 2006 will be on Fox on August 20th, 2006, at 8pm ET/PT with the red carpet pre-show starting at 7:30pm ET/PT.
Jessica says, “I’m glad I’m doing it with Dane because he’s used to the stage. I will be messing up many times, but he’s good at making it a good thing. Dane and I are very good friends. He’s an awesome guy. We talk a lot, but I’m not dating anybody.”
Jessica’s new album is out on August 29th and judging by her new single “A Public Affair” it’s going to be her best album yet! The song is a perfect track to put on while out running in the summer evenings, out cruising in the car with girlfriends or dancing to in the clubs. It’s a fun summery song that you can’t keep still to when it comes on and it’s the best song I’ve heard for a while! Let me know what you think of it - personally I’m so glad at this new direction Jess is taking with her music.
Listen to it now on her official site or pre-buy the album by clicking below:
A Public Affair - Prepurchase on Amazon.com
The video intro is hilarious - celebs mocking celeb stories (I wanna be so famous that I have my baby in Africa etc) - with Christina Applegate, Ryan Seacrest, Eva Longoria, Christina Milan, Andy Dick appearing in it with her. It gets a little raunchy with suggestive iceacream licking - actually licking all around - but it’s a video which will make you smile and feel happy.
National Ledger says that in the new Star magazine there’s an article about Cacee and Nick Lachey as a possible couple. Their website is down right now for me but it seems to be a rehash of old rumours that surfaced when photos were published of Nick and Cacee looking like they were flirting together in a pool a couple of years ago.
The new fuel for these rumours? CaCee has resigned her position as Jessica’s personal assistant and finished up on May 7th. Star magazine apparently says she quit because she couldn’t turn her back on Nick. And furthermore, Nick and CaCee went out clubbing together on May 1st.
Personally, I think it’s an unfounded rumour at this point. Imagine being close friends with a couple and working for one. When they break up, you’re stuck in the middle and your business dealings and personal life suddenly get all messy. It can be easier to get out before things got nasty.
I haven’t forgotten about you - I’ve just not had too much news to add here. But, I’m very excited, today my copy of Nick’s album arrived in the mail from Amazon!!! Who knows when (if ever) it’ll be released in New Zealand so I preordered a copy and patiently waited until it turned up.
I love the album - it’s so heart-felt and full of emotion. You know, I haven’t had any desire to buy SoulO but I felt compelled to buy this one after seeing the music video online and feeling so emotional when seeing the camera crew come into view and seeing the wedding ring around the girl’s neck.
I was talking about the album with my husband and said that normally when you hear sad love songs, you think of applying the words to sad times in your life. When I hear Nick’s sad love songs, I imagine every word is about events that happened betwee Nick and Jessica. It’s almost as though I don’t need to see any music videos for his album - all the images and scenes are playing in my mind. I said that this is the first time I’ve heard an album of sad love songs and thought they were coming from the heart, they were genuine, because I knew what he had been through.
My husband, the great guy he is, thought it was all an amazing publicity stunt, especially the bit with the ring on the necklace. He even predicts Nick and Jessica will do a duet next year at the Grammy’s and get back together. I hope he’s right about the getting back together bit, but hope is fading.
Imagine if it all really were a massive publicity stunt? How far do Hollywood celebs go in order to stay in the news, stay popular, stay rich and famous?
Maybe I don’t want to know.
Nick’s new single “What’s left of me” is climbing up the charts - jumping from #33 to #6 this week!

I just saw the video for the first time and wow. Was it ever a gut-wrenching feeling watching that. When the camera zooms out and you see the film crew - ouch. I felt a little to blame for what went on - we were the people watching their every move. Fascinating to see that the girl in the video wore the ring on a necklace - just like Jess did recently!! Is this a massive play or what?
