        • SIMPSON DEVASTATED BY LACHEY TELL-ALL
Jessica Simpson is devastated by a recent tell-all interview her estranged husband Nick Lachey gave to Rolling Stone magazine, according to media reports in the US. In the interview Lachey revealed he still loved Simpson and was "blindsided" and "sucker-punched" by her decision to file for divorce. A source close to the blonde singer tells US publication People, "She was devastated, heartbroken. She didn't think he would do that." Friends gathered at Simpson's house the day the article hit newsstands to help console her and she even received a call from Lachey himself. A friend of Lachey's tells the magazine, "He wanted her to hear it from him. "He felt bad that she was upset, but Nick didn't apologise, because the things he said (in the article) only demonstrate that he loves her." Simpson's camp believes he is trying to use the publicity to promote his upcoming CD, What's Left Of Me, which is set for release 19 May (06). The Simpson source adds, "What really upset her was the timing. Nick waited until two weeks before his album debut to tell a reporter that he loved Jessica. That's not cool. "He keeps saying, 'I'm sorry I couldn't make her happy,' but he is not choosing to say why." Simpson has turned down offers to tell her side of the story and cancelled a Vanity Fair cover story after it became clear she would have to talk about the split for the story. The source adds, "She will not take the low road." ContactMusic.com

        • LACHEY BLASTS WENNER
Jessica Simpson's estranged husband Nick Lachey is reportedly furious with Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner - after the veteran journalist promised him the front cover of the US music bible, but instead printed the interview in American publication Us Weekly. The former 98 Degrees star hoped the feature in the respected magazine would give his image a much needed boost and was horrified when he saw his face adorning the less prestigious publication. And Lachey is convinced he lost the cover after refusing to reveal too much about his split from Simpson after three years of marriage. A friend tells PageSix.com, "It's absurd to dangle the cover in front of someone, and if it doesn't work out, just hand it to another magazine. We will think twice before dealing with Wenner again."

        • LACHEY DENIES ALBUM SLIGHTS SIMPSON
Nick Lachey has angrily denied tracks on his new album are an attack on his estranged wife Jessica Simpson. The Newlyweds stars split after three years of marriage late last year (05), however Lachey insists the confessional song What's Left Of Me place more blame on himself than her. The 32-year-old says, "It's not in any way vindictive or an assault on her. In a lot of ways, it's more of an assault on me. "Jessica knows I still love her." Lachey also sings about his marriage break-up on I Can't Hate You Anymore. ContactMusic.com

        • 'You can still move on and have the memories'
Jessica Simpson is wearing her wedding ring again - but insists she isn't back with estranged husband, Nick Lachey. The 'Newlyweds' stars split last year after three years of marriage, and the pair are in the middle of divorce proceedings. Jessica has now been spotted wearing the wedding band on a chain round her neck rather than on her finger. A friend of the singer-turned-actress insists the blonde has decided to wear it again to remind herself of the happy times the couple shared. The pal told America's People magazine: "You can still move on and have the memories. "Nick will always be an important part of her life." The ring is accompanied by two crosses, one that was given to Jessica by her parents, while the other matches a crucifix that both her sister, Ashlee, and mother, Tina, wear. A source close the 'Dukes Of Hazzard' star also revealed the jewellery represents "a combination of things that are important to her." Tonight.co.za
        • LEVINE CONFRONTS LACHEY OVER SIMPSON RUMOURS
Maroon 5 star Adam Levine aided his reported love rival Nick Lachey's post-marriage recovery by confronting him with the truth at a Los Angeles bar. Lachey chose not to address rumours his wife Jessica Simpson has been unfaithful when stories about her romancing Levine and Jackass stars Bam Margera and Johnny Knoxville hit publications last year (05). But when she went public with the couple's split in November (05), Lachey admits he did wonder whether there was any truth in the reports. Now, pouring his heart out in a new Rolling Stone interview, Lachey reveals Levine did track him down at a party to make sure the two singers were cool with each other. Lachey recalls, "He came over to me to clear the air. It was a two minute conversation. "He said to me, 'Nothing happened while you guys were married.' He looked me in the eyes and said that, so I chose to believe him. Maybe it's naive of me." But Lachey insists he'd still consider taking his estranged wife back - even if the infidelity rumours are true. He adds, "Even if she cheated five times over, I still love her. Love is not the easiest thing to cut off." ContactMusic.com
        • LACHEY CONFRONTS FOXX OVER MARRIAGE SPLIT JOKE

Lachey was upset when Foxx went public with uninformed thoughts about the split and the legal implications, even joking that the singer's wife Jessica Simpson should "holler" at him if she "wanted a real man". Lachey confronted Foxx after the Ray star refused to return phone calls. He reveals, "The next time I saw him I walked up and told him what was what. "He did what I knew he'd do - he said, 'I'm a comedian, I was just making a joke.'" ContactMusic.com

        • MURPHY CHANNELS SIMPSON IN MUSIC VIDEO
Sin City star Brittany Murphy stunned cast and crew members during a music video shoot for her debut single by showing up looking exactly like Jessica Simpson. The actress shows off her singing skills in British DJ Paul Oakenfold's new track Faster Kill Pussycat and appeared in the rooftop promo, which was filmed in Los Angeles last weekend (15APR06). The Just Married star had a logical explanation for her striking resemblance to Simpson - she hired the pop star's hairstylist and best friend Ken Paves to help her with her look for the shoot. Paves used blonde extensions from the range he's launching with Simpson later this year (05) to create Murphy's hairstyle. ContactMusic.com

        • Jessica Simpson pulled the plug
Nick Lachey has opened up about the failure of his marriage to Jessica Simpson.
“I wanted to be everything to my wife,” Lachey confessed in an interview appearing in both Rolling Stone and US Weekly next week. “It breaks my heart that I couldn’t make Jessica happy.”
“I'd marry her all over again. Because I still love her. It would be a lot easier to walk away if I didn't.”
Lachey admitted there were problems in their relationship last year but he was surprised when Simpson called it off. He said they were driving home from a dinner following the American Music Awards when his wife “said something about how we hadn’t really been getting along and then said, ‘I think I want a divorce.’” Lachey said he asked Simpson to “sleep on it” but her mind was unchanged the following day.
“I felt like someone sucker-punched me and took my life away,” he told the magazines, which are owned by the same company. “My dog, my wife, the house."
Lachey revealed that on the day she filed for divorce, Dec. 16, he visited Simpson at her parents’ house and begged her to work on saving their marriage by going to counseling together.
“I thought we owed it to ourselves to try … but she didn't want to go.”
Lachey said he doesn’t blame his ex-wife. “Marriage is the toughest thing in the world. To blame her is bullshit.”
He said his former father-in-law, Joe Simpson, is also not to blame but admitted he was “an influence” in the marriage. Lachey refused to confirm reports that Simpson was unfaithful during their marriage – but fell short of denying them. “If she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn't work. ... Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn't have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery.” Canada.com

        • SIMPSON WEARING HER WEDDING BAND AGAIN
Jessica Simpson has Hollywood gossips mystified after wearing her platinum wedding ring on a chain around her neck. The pop star was spotted wearing the keepsake on holiday in Australia last week (ends14APR06), prompting star watchers to suggest her estranged husband Nick Lachey is close to her heart again. The sighting of the eternity band marks the first time Simpson has worn the ring in public since she announced her split from Lachey last November (05). It now shares a special place with a cross gift from her parents. A friend tells American magazine In Touch, "She wants to keep all her memories close to her heart." Simpson's decision to go public with her wedding ring accessory came just days after Lachey revealed he still loves his estranged wife in a 4 April (06) radio interview. ContactMusic.com

Five months after Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson announced their separation, Lachey dishes about the end of his marriage in the current issue of Rolling Stone, on stands in New York and Los Angeles Wednesday and nationwide Friday. Here is what he had to say:
• "I'll tell you how I knew my marriage was over: I was told."
• "Jessica and I began playing these parts (on their MTV reality show Newlyweds) even when we were by ourselves. It became a really blurred line. There was a question about what truly was our reality."
• "I don't pretend to understand (former father-in-law) Joe (Simpson). ... I don't know if he ever liked me. To this day I couldn't say. It was painful. Do I think Joe drove a rift between us? No. Was he an influence in our marriage? Absolutely."
• "I don't know if there were other men. But if she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn't work. ... Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn't have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery." USA Today

        • FEDERLINE SLAMS SIMPSON AND LACHEY FOR DIVORCING
Aspiring rapper Kevin Federline insists his marriage to Britney Spears will never end in divorce like Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson's relationship. Federline believes the former Newlyweds stars didn't work hard enough to keep their relationship together. He explains, "My situation is different. I ain't gettin' no divorce. F**k that! "I don't believe in that s**t. Once you get married, you're in it for the fight." The former back-up dancer believes Lachey is entitled to multi-million dollar alimony payments from his estranged wife - because the couple became even more famous while they were married. He explains, "They did their whole thing together. They really blew up together on that (reality) show. They deserve whatever they get." ContactMusic.com

The Tarrant Apparel Group (TAG) filed suit against the star at New York State Supreme Court last week (06APR06).

        • Simpsons get on board
Showbiz starlets Jessica and Ashlee Simpson proved the family that plays together stays together when they stepped out for a fun-packed day of shopping and sightseeing with their parents in Sydney yesterday. Newly single Dukes of Hazzard babe Jessica touched down early yesterday morning in a show of sisterly support for junior Simpson Ashlee, who will host and perform at the MTV Awards tomorrow night. But before official duties commence today, the Simpson sisters – flanked by their parents and managers Joe and Tina – wasted no time checking out the best in what Sydney has to offer visiting celebs.
"It's been a while since we've all been together as a family so it's really nice – it's the start of our Easter vacation," Ashlee told Confidential.
"We just want to all spend time together and relax and enjoy it."
And enjoy it they did. In keeping with her tag as one of America's most stylish sweethearts, Jessica had been in town for all of two hours before a wave of retail therapy madness hit. With her cowboy boots made for walking, Jess hit the strip on Oxford St with Tina, where she stocked up on goodies from designer boutiques Alannah Hill and Stellino. Meanwhile Ashlee _"I'm so in love"_ hung out with skateboarding boyfriend and band member Braxton Olita and father Joe while waiting to board a luxury pleasure cruiser at Darling Harbour. All Simpsons aboard, the showbiz family picked up some superstar takeaway from Woolloomooloo noshery Otto before soaking up the sun on the Harbour. The Daily Telegraph

The singer/actress, whose sister Ashlee Simpson is hosting the event in Sydney on Wednesday night, arrived on an early morning Qantas flight from Los Angeles. She was ushered through a VIP customs exit, greeted by around a dozen photographers and television camera crews.
"I'm so excited. It's been so long since I've been here," the 25-year-old said.
Organisers would not say what role Simpson would have in the MTV event, which will be held at Sydney's Olympic Park on Wednesday. But the starlet, who was wearing a white jacket, ripped jeans and brown cowboy boots, said she was looking forward to seeing her sister.
"I can't wait to see her."
Simpson is best known for her starring turn in the movie The Dukes of Hazzard, as well as reality TV show Newlyweds, in which she and her now estranged husband, Nick Lachey, were followed around by a television crew. AAP

        • Jessica Sued Over Fashion Choices
As far as some of her business associates are concerned, Jessica Simpson is not exactly the employee of the month. The "In This Skin" singer has been sued for $100 million by an apparel company that claims she failed to promote their product as promised, the Smoking Gun Website reports. According to the complaint, filed in New York State Supreme Court by the Tarrant Apparel Group, Simpson inked a multimillion-dollar three-year licensing deal in December 2004 to launch a line of low-priced jeans and clothing. Under the terms of the agreement, Simpson was supposed to be "actively involved" in promoting the garb, including wearing items from the line at "public events, shows and appearances" whenever "reasonably practicable."

        • Jessica Simpson Album Shifts Gears Along With Personal Life
Jessica Simpson's back in the studio this week -- but she's not leaving the drama of her divorce behind. The singer's long-delayed album, And The Band Played On, was originally due in November but was pushed back shortly before the news of her split from husband Nick Lachey was announced. Up to that point, Simpson planned on making the album a country-club combo. But now that she's gone through so much, she's reconsidered what kind of statement she wants to make.
"I think that with my music, you can't help but tell people a story about your life," Simpson said. "I believe that every artist, that's their artistry - it comes out of them naturally, through lyrics, through music, through instrumentation. So with this next record, you will see and hear a lot of things I've been going through. And if that can offer any inspiration to anybody else going through the same situations, so be it. That's why I'm here." Read more.

        • Jessica Simpson in Baywatch?
Jessica Simpson has been tipped to star in a remake of Californian beach drama Baywatch. A source told a newspaper: "Jessica really caught the eye in The Dukes of Hazzard film last summer. She was the unanimous choice for the Baywatch role." Jessica, 25, will reportedly play a heroic lifeguard on Venice Beach, California and is expected to take up Pamela Anderson's legacy. The source added: "Jessica has all the assets to make Pammi's part her own." Producers also hope David Hasselhoff, 53, who played Lt Mitch Buchannon, will be interested in the remake if Jessica joins the cast. itv.com

        • Simpson Linked With Comedic Co-star
Jessica Simpson is reportedly becoming more than just good friends with her latest co-star, comedian Dane Cook, after the two were spotted holding hands and cuddling. [...] Cook lives with girlfriend, Valli Girls lead singer Raquel Houghton, in Los Angeles.
