Candids: LAX Airport, September 25 2010

Finished up with a promotional stop in her home state, Jessica Simpson was spotted arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Saturday (September 25).

Fresh off of a short flight from Houston, Texas, the “Dukes of Hazzard” hottie trekked through the terminal with security by her side as she hopped into an awaiting car en route to her west coast abode.

Prior to flying back to Cali, Miss Simpson tweeted throughout her Houston visit, writing, “Love being in my home state! Come meet me from 1-4 at Dillard’s in Friendswood, TX and see all the new cute @JSCollection fashion for fall!”

Just prior to heading to the airport, Jess added, “My BFF and I in Houston after an amazing in store! She rocked my hair out! Feelin’ sexy! Love u ladybug!”


Jessica Simpson hits the Houston area with the Cowboys in town

In my years of celebrity reporting, I have stood on red carpets in the rain and behind velvet ropes, listened to fans scream relentlessly and wished I had worn more comfortable shoes.

I’ve learned to show up early, even though the famous face I hope to get five minutes with will probably be late. And, I’ve learned that a certain hot actor really will try to burn you with a cigarette if you rebuff his advances to go back and “party” in his hotel room. (True story, I swear.) The nicest moments though are the ones where the celeb is chatty and real and you get your story and walk away feeling good about the interview and the interviewee.

I’ve had that exact experience before with Jessica Simpson, so when the possibility of a chat with her came to pass, I was all in.

Simpson held court in the Dillard’s denim department of Baybrook Mall Saturday (the biggest jean market in Texas, BTW), promoting her new jean collection, which includes four fits: Jegging, Skinny, Boot-cut, and Flare.

So much is made of Simpson’s weight and body shape, but honestly, she looked great in a pair of jeggings from her collection, a black Jones Apparel top, a sheer, drapey shawl (from her Collection 18, available in the spring) a Jessica Simpson double leaf ring and a pair of gray suede platform pumps, Jessica Simpson brand, of course.

Long blonde ringlets, likely created from her hair extension line, framed her face and she was, in fact, right on time. Except, she didn’t talk to the media, which was a bit of a bummer, but that’s the way it goes. She was chatty with the hundreds of fans, many of whom were in tears as they approached her. Simpson took her time, sipped coffee and smiled like she meant it, which made her fans that much more devoted to her.

If we had chatted, I would have asked about the big Texans-Cowboys game Sunday (yes, her ex Tony Romo is in town too, but it’s a big city) and her role as a judge on the Project Runway finale. We may have touched on body image and boys, her Christmas album and what role she would like as a Glee guest star.

But there was no interview and that’s OK too. That’s life on the red carpet.


Jessica Simpson getting turned down by Andrea Bocelli

As Jessica Simpson begins working on her new Christmas album, she won’t be getting any help from singing legend Andrea Bocelli.

Rumors were out that the two would be singing a duet on the album, but Bocelli’s rep shot down those claims, reports E! News. His rep did confirm that Bocelli was asked to be involved, but that his current schedule does not allow him the time to take part.

But Jessica’s album won’t be without any big names. Willie Nelson is rumored to be involved in the project.

Fan encounter: Belk, Charlotte NC 9/18

Ashley shared her experience from meeting Jessica earlier today – thank you so much :)

Hey there! I just wanted to write to you & tell you about my FIRST time meeting Jessica Simpson today at Belk in Charlotte, NC. All that I can say is, she is absolutely AMAZING! I watched her make her grand entrance, bought one of her sweaters, stood in line for about an hour, met her & got a signed picture of her & received a free gift bag with some goodies in it. I have been a HUGE fan of hers for as long as I can remember, & to have met her today is the biggest blessing I have received! She is so, so, so sweet, so beautiful, so down-to-earth. She was having full conversations with everyone, shaking hands, laughing & dancing, etc. I enjoyed every single moment of this experience! I stood next to Tina & her 2 assistants in line. Her assistant took a video of all of us in line to show Jessica how many people were there to see her. They took pics of fans who bought her jeanswear as well! She told me that I was very pretty, & for this to come from her is just so rewarding! All in all, she is a gift from God!

If any other readers went please send in your stories! :) Thanks again Ashley!
