Jessica's Jeans From Heather: "I went down to Avenue this weekend and I got a pair of Jessica's new jeans. The store displays
had the "ReJoyce" cover photo on it (they had 4 displays and a table full of the jeans), and they had about 8 different
styles. They run about $59 each, sizes 16-26W (you can see them at Avenue.com). They have Jessica Simpson inscribed
in red on the waistband, and a JS on the butt of most of the pairs. There cute!
Here's shots of the ones i picked up."
Great news! From Thomas: "Dukes Of Hazzard has opened at #1 on the UK Cinema Box Office, It took £1.8 million in its opening weekend!!"
August 30th, 2005 | by Joanna A Possible Duet Between Mariah and Jessica Simpson?
At Friday's In Touch party for Mariah at the Raleigh Hotel, the big scene was Miss Carey and Jessica Simpson hugging, chatting and generally becoming the focus of every eye and ear. Producer Jermaine Dupri - he created Carey's Sunday night National Hotel rooftop musical number - was so caught up in the Carey-Simpson gabfest he pulled out his BlackBerry to voice message himself about arranging a possible duet between the two singers, whose clothing-optional fashion sense is as impressive as their octaves. (Dupri also produced Carey's comeback CD.)

August 26th, 2005 | by Joanna Michigan Concert Review From Grace: "Hi!
I am a frequent visitor to sweetkisses.net, and I love Jessica. I was able to attend my first concert yesterday at
Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
I don't know why she booked the concert in the middle of all her other ventures, but I am sure glad she did.
Her voice is more amazing in person than on tv or even her cd's. She did, however, FORGET the words to about 5
different songs. I'm not kidding. She messed up on "These Boots Were Made for Walking" and had to start over.
(That's what she opened with.) She couldn't remember the first verse to "Sweetest Sin," but wasn't afraid of
confessing while performing.
She sang 3 new songs of her new album: "Son of a Preacher's Man," (loved it!), "Fired Up," and another sad love song
originally written by Dolly Parton. She said "Fired Up" might well be her next single, and it was written for
Cacee since that's what she always says.
Nick is in Sweden working on music, but she told everyone that he recently was signed at ESPN to be football
reporter/commentator. So we will get to see him this fall! It's apparently one of his lifelong dreams.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun, and I hope you find all this interesting :)
Thanks for doing such a fantastic job on the website!"
Simpson Slams Music Pressure
Jessica Simpson has slammed record bosses for putting intense pressure on her when her second album Irresistible flopped in 2001.
The blonde beauty, 25, was devastated by her failure but believes it was only after she started to be independent that she was able to reignite her lacklustre career.
She says, "That was probably my lowest point. I had people breathing down my neck, telling me which way to turn and I felt like I was a machine trying to spit out some product that had nothing to do with me."
"Back then, people were trying to force my success. It's so easy to get caught up in what people want from you, or in people telling you how amazing your body is."
"I've found, as cheesy as it may sound, that being yourself is what truly makes you a success."
"Insecurity is everyone's biggest battle - it doesn't matter who you are."

Jessica Simpson Sets Sight on Shakespeare
Jessica Simpson is desperate to hone her acting skills on the London stage - but will consider nothing less than a role in a William Shakespeare play.
The 25-year-old beauty, who plays sex-bomb Daisy Duke in the big screen version of The Dukes of Hazzard, now considers herself a seasoned actress and is convinced a classic production would finally eradicate her dumb blonde image.
Simpson says, "When I arrived in England the first thing I did was go straight to the Globe Theatre. "For me that is the home of acting and writing. "I have always loved Shakespeare. That's the job I want - anything at the Globe."
Jessica is on the cover of Italian magazine Cosmopolitan Compact, August 2005 issue, view the scans here.

Jessica Simpson Wants to Save the World Before Having Kids
Jessica Simpson wants to save the world before having children with husband Nick Lachey.
The singer/actress turned 25 last month (JUL05), but she has many things she wants to do with her life before she settles down with a family.
She says, "Me turning 25, well, it's just the beginning of me being a woman.
"There's still so much we want to do together. We'd still like to do some mission work, visit developing countries - I have this whole plan to save the world."
Jessica rules out more 'Newlyweds'
Jessica Simpson has ruled out appearing in any more reality shows.
The singer, who starred in four seasons of Newlyweds with husband Nick Lachey, has tired of the genre that returned her to fame.
"No more reality shows," she said. "I think that people have seen a lot of our reality. More than anything, we enjoy doing our ABC variety specials. We might do a couple more of those."
Lachey, meanwhile, is preparing to appear in his own reality show for MTV this autumn.
Jessica Simpson Starts Diary
Jessica Simpson has started expressing herself through a new medium - her personal diary.
The 25-year-old Newlyweds star admits that while she was shooting her movie debut The Dukes of Hazzard in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she started to write down her innermost thoughts, as she'd once done when she was younger,
She says, "In my time in Baton Rouge, I started to write in my journal again, and that's how I got to know myself. I found a part of me that was dying to come out."

Simpson's come out with a new plus-size jean line for women. They're sold at Avenue stores.
A spokeswoman said Simpson wants to reach out to all her fans, not just the skinny ones. She added, "Jessica recognizes that she has a very broad fan base" that includes "girls from 90 pounds all the way up to 300 pounds."
The spokeswoman said Simpson was very much hands-on in creating the denim line. She said the concept was Simpson's -- as were some of the designs.

'Dukes' Are Boss at Weekend Box Office
The good ol' boys of "The Dukes of Hazzard" crashed past another pair of joke-cracking buddies to the top of the
weekend box office. The adventure comedy, which stars Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott as the mischievous
Duke cousins, rounded up $30.6 million in its first three days of release, according to studio estimates Sunday.
Set in the fictional southern county of Hazzard, "Dukes" chronicles the adventures of Bo and Luke, who try to save the family farm from crooked politician Boss Hogg with the help of their orange 1969 Dodge Charger and denim short shorts-wearing cousin Daisy, played in her film debut by singer-slash-reality TV star Jessica Simpson.
The film weathered largely nasty reviews with a savvy marketing campaign. Its stars appeared on GQ magazine covers two months in a row, and Simpson drew attention with a sexy video for her cover of "These Boots are Made for Walkin'." Willie Nelson, who plays Uncle Jesse in the film, also makes a cameo in the video.
"The combination of the cast and the name recognition of the television show combined with the sex appeal and car chases was irresistible to movie-goers," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box office-tracker Exhibitor Relations.
The audience for "The Dukes of Hazzard" was evenly split in gender and two-thirds were under age 25, said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros.
"I was very pleased with the opening. It exceeded our expectations," Fellman said.
1. "The Dukes of Hazzard," $30.6 million
2. "The Wedding Crashers," $16.5 million
3. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," $10.6 million
4. "Sky High," $9.0 million
5. "Must Love Dogs," $7.4 million
6. "March of the Penguins," $6.9 million
7. "Stealth," $5.8 million
8. "Fantastic Four," $4.1 million
9. "War of the Worlds," $3.6 million
10. "The Island," $3.1 million
Yee Haw: Dukes Of Hazzard, Jessica Simpson Top Box Office
Despite the spurns of the critics who have claimed the Dukes of Hazzard was Southern stupid and blond dumb, right now the comedy thrillbilly is laughing all the way to the bank.
The Dukes has hazard a box office hit in its first weekend with approximately $30.6 million in its first three days of release, according to studio estimates Sunday.
So far, Dukes of Hazzard has doubled the movie ticket revenues of the "The Wedding Crashers," at $16.5 million and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," at $10.6 million.
- Bite me critics!! GO JESS & THE DUKES!
August 7th, 2005 | by Joanna Dukes Drives Away with $12.5 Million
ShowBIZ Data's box office estimates for Friday show that Warner Bros' remake of the popular CBS show The Dukes of Hazzard,
starring Johnny Knoxville, Seann William Scott and Jessica Simpson, has scored the top spot with $12.5 million in its
opening day on Friday. As the ninth widest release of all time, Dukes has little competition for the top spot this
weekend, where it should earn somewhere between $33 and 35 million.

Nick Lachey Denies Splitting From Jessica Simpson
98 Degrees member Nick Lachey denied Wednesday, during a co-hosting gig on the syndicated TV show "Live With Regis and Kelly," rumors about him and his wife Jessica Simpson splitting up.
He said, "There's the saying that when they stop talking about you that's when you have to worry. So that's kind of what you have to keep in your mind is that as long as people care, it's a good thing. But it does get old."
"I would absolutely, positively, like to set the record straight. Everything is absolutely wonderful in marriage and life and love. We've been saying it for months now. We're okay...
They insist on going back to the same old thing about I'm jealous of her career. I love my wife to death and I support the heck out of her, as any husband would", Nick added.

Jessica and Ashlee Simpson's Father Takes Legal Action
In an interview with "Access Hollywood," Joe Simpson, father and manager of pop stars Ashlee and Jessica Simpson, says that they have "hired the most powerful lawyer in the city" to take on publications that he claims run false reports about his family. The interview airs on "Access Hollywood," Tuesday, August 2, 2005.
"What we've done is hire the most powerful lawyer in the city to start taking these people on," said Simpson. "You can only say, 'No that's not true'...so often and then everybody thinks you are lying."
The pop stars' father also says he believes the stories published about them have gotten out of hand. "I had Botox, who believes that? Jessica had plastic surgery, who believes that?," he said. "I mean, they just print it because Jessica sells magazines, Ashlee sells magazines and we don't have any responsibility in the media anymore. You can say whatever the hell you want to and it's not right."
When asked what he thought would make the reports stop, Simpson replied, "I don't know. A law suit big enough to get their attention."

Jessica Simpson Mixes Country Flavor With Club Tracks On Upcoming LP
"The Dukes of Hazzard" has done more than launch Jessica Simpson's movie career — it's also given her a sense of direction for her upcoming album, which she promises will have a country-fried flavor.
"Living in the South for three months again felt really good," Simpson said of shooting the film in Louisiana. "It brought a lot of my personality back that I was missing. I retreated back to Patsy Cline, and tried to go back there a little bit."
Simpson had threatened to go country as early as this past December, when she also contemplated adding some jazz overtones to the album.
But Simpson's redirection mostly comes thanks to her collaboration with Willie Nelson on the "Dukes" soundtrack single "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'," which she said was so much fun that she hopes to work with Willie again.
"We've been talking about it, Willie and I," Simpson said. "We have some songs put away for each other, but I don't know what we're going to end up doing. We'll see."
What she does know is that her LP, titled And the Band Played On, is due out in November. "I have two more songs to record," she revealed, adding that the album marks her first as executive producer. She compares the LP's sound with "Billie Holiday, Patsy Cline, Stevie Nicks — it's all over the place. But then there's songs for us girls to dance to in the club," she explained. Simpson has worked with knob-twiddlers Corey Rooney, Scott Storch and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the disc, with the latter pair of producers collaborating on "about six songs" total.
One of Storch's tracks, the dance-club burner "Fire It Up" — he calls it Jessica's "Dirtty" — is a contender to be the LP's first single. Simpson also recorded another club track, "Mr. Operator," with Storch during their session together three weeks ago.
"You'll hear [the country], but you'll also hear the fun club songs. Club songs and country songs; it's all of it, mixed into one," Simpson said. "Just really good music."
I got awesome high quality captures of Jessica on Leno from Doug - thanks!! Check them out below :)
