Adam's ribbing: Green scores with `Jessica' ditty
Adam Green didn't know diddly about Jessica Simpson, but he picked the perfect pop-cultural moment to write a song about her. Call it prescience or dumb luck, Green's oddball song ``Jessica'' came out on his even odder album ``Friends of Mine'' just about the time Simpson and husband Nick Lachey's reality show ``Newlyweds'' made its debut on MTV.

Nick And Jessica's Party Night Cut Short
Star magazine reports Jessica Simpson and hubby Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees went out clubbing on January 8th at the grand opening of Hollywood hotspot El Centro. Unfortunately, the party came to an early halt when fire marshals showed up just an hour later. "They threw everyone out, and Nick and Jessica went running back to their car as four fire trucks pulled up," a witness revealed. "It was a madhouse with people running everywhere!" PopDirt.com

Jessica Simpson Album Sales Rise

Jessica's Super Bowl Snack!
"Newlywed" JESSICA SIMPSON is playing referee to MISS PIGGY -- and serving up some delish pizzas while she's at it! No, it's not hubby NICK LACHEY's wildest dream, but Jessica's first-ever commercial -- just in time for Super Bowl Sunday. ET was on the set of the mouthwatering Pizza Hut spot as Jessica got to work with her fave muppets: "It's very cool and Pizza Hut is the best and the muppets are an American icon. I've watched them since I was young and Miss Piggy is in a cute little 'Juicy' sweatsuit and has bling-bling so it's fun! I like her attitude!" Read more and check the video clip here.

Jessica Simpson Gets a Walk On Role
Singer and Newlyweds star Jessica Simpson will make her feature film debut in Walk On, an ensemble baseball biopic to be directed by Walter Hill. Written by Richard Julian, the project is based on the true story of the Texas Rangers franchise, which was nearly bankrupt in 1973. Their savior was David Clyde, an 18-year-old high school senior recruited by the Rangers even before he could attend his prom. Clyde's Cinderella story took a turn for the worse, however, when the mercurial Billy Martin replaced coach Whitey Herzog. Simpson will portray Clyde's wife and high school sweetheart. Keith Carradine, Sophie B. Hawkins and Donal Logue are also in talks to join the cast. Variety says the independently financed production is scheduled to begin next year on locations in New Mexico and Texas. ComingSoon.net

Pizza Hut Unveils 4forALL Pizza Before the Big Game; Jessica Simpson and The Muppets End the Topping Debate
Just before the coin toss for the big game on Sunday, February 1, Pizza Hut(R) will debut two important firsts: its new 4forALL(TM) Pizza and Jessica Simpson's first national commercial. The commercial, created by New York-based BBDO, features superstars Jessica Simpson and The Muppets(TM) and the newest Pizza Hut product innovation: 4forALL Pizza -- the first pizza that solves the topping debate forever with four, individually topped, six-inch square pizzas in a single box for $11.99. Pizza Hut research found that families always debate about which toppings to order on a pizza because everyone wants something different. Although pizza is the ultimate food for sharing, coming to a consensus on the toppings can be the ultimate dilemma. Until now. Read more.

Jessica and Nick on Jay Leno! Doggy update!
From Manda24: "Jay Leno just showed a clip of Nick and Jess from last night at the Golden Globes and she told a correspondent that her and Nick were looking a Siberian Huskies, they actually met with a breeder. The guy said "you look pretty!" and Jess was like "oh thank you!" and he goes "Oh I was talking to Nick" :-). (The correspondent is gay). Just thought I'd share!"

Lachey Seals ABC Acting Deal
Pop singer and "Newlyweds" star Nick Lachey has signed a deal to star in a comedy or drama pilot for Disney's ABC network. The pact, which could reach high-six figures, also includes a feature component as well as the recently announced variety special Lachey and wife Jessica Simpson are doing for ABC. Simpson is already under a development deal to star in an ABC comedy pilot. Lachey recently filmed a guest spot on NBC's drama "American Dreams," portraying a young Tom Jones. The episode is scheduled to air Feb. 15. He hit stardom as a member of vocal pop quartet 98 Degrees. His debut solo album, "SoulO," was released in November. After a strong first season, Lachey and Simpson's MTV reality series, "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica," returned with a bang for a second season last week, posting its most-watched episode ever with an audience of 4.7 million viewers.

'Newlyweds' new season opens strong, draws 4.7 million viewers
Apparently a few months off has done nothing to diminish the popularity of MTV's Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, the network's much talked about reality series which follows the celebrity marriage of former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey and "pop tart" Jessica Simpson. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Newlyweds' second season premiere on January 21 at 10 PM ET not only drew 4.7 million total viewers, but it also ranked first in its target Adults 12-34 demographic among all broadcast and cable networks in its time slot. Read more.

MTV's 'Newlyweds' Beats 'Todd' in Cable Derby
A pair of returning cable favorites spoiled the party for a new series Tuesday. Second-season premieres for MTV's "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" and Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show" registered their most-watched episodes yet at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., respectively. That hurt the debut of FX's new reality series, "Todd TV," which ran from 10-11 p.m. "Newlyweds" drew 4.7 million total viewers and ranked first in its target 12-34 demo among all broadcast and cable networks in that time slot. It also served as lead-in for new reality series "'Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen and Dave," which was MTV's highest-rated series premiere among viewers 12-34, but dropped roughly one-quarter of "Newlyweds"' total audience, tallying 3.3 million. "Chappelle" premiered to nearly 3 million viewers, about 1 million more than tuned in for the series debut last year. The episode was the highest-rated program among males 18-34, broadcast or cable, in its time slot and actually built on its "South Park" lead-in by 36%. That spelled bad news for FX, which saw 803,000 viewers tune in to "Todd." The series dropped nearly half the audience of lead-in theatrical "Dude, Where's My Car?" Further complicating the time slot was a strong rerun performance of the third-season premiere of USA's "Monk" from earlier in the week, drawing 2.1 million viewers.

'Todd TV' Tanks as Viewers Need 'Newlyweds'
When your heavily promoted new reality series loses nearly half of its lead-in, that's never a good thing. When that lead-in is a screening of "Dude, Where's My Car?" it's even worse. Facing steep premiere competition from MTV's "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" and Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show," FX's "Todd TV" had a disappointing start on Tuesday, Jan. 20. Read more.

Jessica Stresses Nick Out With Joint Bank Account
Pop beauty Jessica Simpson has become an even greater financial worry to husband Nick Lachey -- because they've finally signed up for a joint bank account. Simpson and her reality TV co-star Lachey constantly bicker because of her free- spending ways -- and the new banking partnership has led to increased problems.
Lachey says, "Now I feel like there's a race to the ATM. I have to beat her to it before there's no money left. "I've tried to teach Jessica not to waste money."
Included in Simpson's big spender list is a set of $1,400 bed sheets and two lingerie sets, which cost her a whopping $746. SFGate.com

No Truth To Nick And Jess Sex Tape Claims
In Touch reports that a website is claiming to have 45 minutes of 'XXX-unedited footage' of Jessica Simpson and her husband Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees having sex after getting into an argument. The site says it was culled from unedited footage of the couple's hit MTV reality show, 'Newlyweds,' using cameras triggered whenever there was movement in the bedroom. Simpson's publicist tells the magazine the tape is a complete hoax. "It is not them, and lawyers are getting involved," the flack insisted. PopDirt.com

Nick Lachey Likely To Start Kissing Jessica Simpson's Tummy More
No, Jessica Simpson's not pregnant, but Nick Lachey is likely to start kissing his wife's tummy a little more in the new year. That's thanks to the pop starlet's new belly-button fragrance, made from pheromones, aromatic chemical compounds naturally emitted by humans that can act as an aphrodisiac.
The perfume is part of D'lish Fragrance Inc.'s upcoming Dessert, a body-care line Simpson helped create. Due in Sephora stores nationwide in April, the line will also feature whipped body cream, chocolate body gloss, powdered sugar body shimmer, lip-plumping fragrance, bath bubbles, and hair and body treatments. All of the items are "lickable," according to D'lish, and available in three scents, Creamy, Dreamy and Juicy.
"It's been so much fun to be able to create a line of beauty products from start to finish," Simpson said in a statement. "I can't wait to be able to share Dessert with the world. The whole experience has been so exciting to me, from coming up with ideas and concepts to smelling samples ... and choosing my favorites." Free samples of Dessert are available now through www.dessertbeauty.com. Read more.

Best & Worst Starring Jessica Simpson
D magazine of Dallas has placed Jessica Simpson on the cover of their Best and Worst of 2003 issue. They write, "Her reality show, 'Newlyweds', was certainly one of the biggest stories of the year. It seemed every week brought another headline-grabbing bon mot from the comely chanteuse, whether she was marveling that Chicken of the Sea was actually tuna or she was declining buffalo wings because she doesn’t eat buffalo. It is true that the pop princess moved away from her hometown of Richardson some time ago, so her story is not exactly a local one. But we think you’ll agree: she’s got boobs." 'American Idol' champ Kelly Clarkson also got a mention for Worst Homecoming. Read more.

Jessica Simpson Wants To Be Like The Old Jewel
Steppin' Out magazine's Chaunce Hayden recently spoke with Jessica Simpson and asked the singer about comparisons to Britney Spears, whom Hayden told Simpson had become almost a joke because it's so much more about her sex image than it is her music. "That's what works for her," Simpson responded. "That's Britney's thing. She's a very sexy person. That's the way she chooses to sell her career." As for Britney skewing music towards sex first, music second, unlike someone like Jewel, Simpson said, "Yeah, I miss the Jewel who used to sing in wife-beater shirts and jeans with just her guitar on stage. That's what I want to be. Music should not be about your outfit. It shouldn't be about what you're wearing or what your hair looks like. It shouldn't be about your image. It should be about the lyrics and the melody. It should be about what's in your soul." Read more & view scans.

Jessica Simpson To Back 'Dessert' Fragrance Line

MTV's new 'Newlyweds' season to kick off on January 21
MTV has announced that the second season of Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, the network's much talked about reality series which follows the celebrity marriage of former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey and "pop tart" Jessica Simpson, will premiere on Wednesday, January 21st at 10 PM ET/PT.

The second season of Newlyweds picks up at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City where Nick and Jessica celebrate their first anniversary, only to find their quiet getaway interrupted by an Oktoberfest celebration. To salvage their anniversary, they head to New York for a romantic carriage ride through Central Park and dinner at Tavern on the Green where Nick has a top tier replica of their wedding cake flown in to Jessica's delight.

The couple also celebrates Nick's 30th birthday complete with Jessica jumping out of a cake wearing nothing but a diamond encrusted watch and lingerie. Additional highlights include Nick's second attempt at redecorating and Jessica splurging on a few luxury items.

Not wanting to be left out of the broadcast network's fun, prior to the season premiere, MTV's MTV.com division will also be launching a new "Tuna or Chicken" online game in which players must identify the mystery objects as chicken or tuna, as well as featuring additional video footage and photos that will not be part of the broadcast episodes.

Newlyweds is executive produced by R. Greg Johnston and produced by Larry Rudolph and Joe Simpson. Lois Curren and Rod Aissa also serve as Executive Producers.

Jessica Simpson - The Innocent
Two things piss off Jessica Simpson. Saying she's not the brightest bulb in the pack isn't one of them. "People can say I'm dumb, I don't care," she says defiantly, "because I know I'm not." But suggest that she can't sing, or worse, that her marriage with husband Nick Lachey isn't going to last, and you'll find the singer/reality TV phenom in fighting mode. Read more.

Re-release of In This Skin?
This is from a message board and has not been confirmed, but I thought I'd post it anyway ;)
"Ok, this is from a guy named Robbie on a different message board, I sometimes talk to him so credit goes to him on this. And it is a fact he does indeed work at a radio station...when I went to LCSD in Portland, OR where Jess and Nick were hosting the show, he even gave Jessica my letter. Anyway...

"I was at the station yesterday and my music director was on the phone with our Columbia Records rep, Brad Davison. I had him ask Brad about what's next for Jessica and Brad said that In This Skin is close to going gold. In order to try and hopefully go platinum with the album, they're re-releasing it in the spring. It will come with a bonus DVD of outtakes from The Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica. Also, the album will feature 3 brand new songs, one of which will be a duet with Nick. One of the other new songs will be Jessica's cover of Berlin's "Take My Breath Away," and that's slated to be the next single. The first season of Newlyweds will be availabe on DVD in the summer."

Simpson, 23, tells People magazine she's not sure she'd want her pregnancy to be captured on her MTV reality show, "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica." "Brandy did that, but I see our show just being the 'Newlyweds,'" she tells the magazine in its Jan. 12 issue. Simpson is married to singer Nick Lachey. "I don't think I am going to get pregnant. I am trying not to. But we might get a dog." FoxNews.com

Jess & Nick to host SNL
01/17/2004 - Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey / G-Unit "Newlyweds" stars Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey host, with musical guest G-Unit featuring hip-hop superstar 50 Cent. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are the first married couple to host SNL in ten years (Alec Baldwin & Kim Basinger hosted in 1994). The recording artists' lives have changed since agreeing to star in MTV's popular reality show "Newlyweds" which chronicled their first year of married life with millions of viewers in tow. The show returns for its second season this month.
Joining the "Newlyweds" are hip-hop firebrands G-Unit featuring 50 Cent. Few artists have broken out as huge as 50 Cent. His crew G-Unit has been part of that phenomenal success since his early beginnings on the mixtape circuit. G-Unit is 50 flanked by Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and the still-incarcerated Tony Yayo. The double platinum album "Beg For Mercy" is already blazing up the charts with the first single "Stunt 101" scoring across the boards.

An American Evolution
In case the thought of rockin' out with Dick Clark on New Year's Eve was just too darn depressing, you missed, among other things, the Black Eyed Peas singing "Shut Up." When Dick wasn't shivering inside his special booth in the East, the camera jumped to our West Coast hosts, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. They had something up their sleeves. (No, not chicken of the sea—already played out. And not a kiss—so dated and hetero.) Rather, in the new year's first giant product placement, the couple made a grand entrance in an SSR, Chevrolet's fabulously bizarre-looking new pickup roadster. Read more.

Sugar Bowl insider
[...] Simpson sighting: Pop singing star Jessica Simpson stirred up the crowd when she was spotted coming out of Tipitina's on Saturday afternoon. Simpson stars in the MTV reality show "Newlyweds" with her husband Nick Lachey, formerly of the boy band 98 Degrees. But most of those in the crowd seemed much more excited about the approaching ballgame than about seeing Simpson. Read the whole article here.

The 2003 Sixy Awards

Included were Jessica Simpson, who won the 'Sixy Watt Bulb Award' for leading the trend of "stoopids" on TV this year, Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan for 'Sixiest Catfight', Britney Spears for 'Sixy More Reasons Not To Date Fred Durst', Ben Affleck for 'Sixy Ways to Leave Your Lover' after "desperately trying to get out of his marriage to Jennifer Lopez," and *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake, for 'Six Cents on the Dollar Award' after the singer "tried to pay for his party of eight to play all night at a San Francisco bowling alley with two tickets to his concert."

Sugar Bowl
[...] Sing it, Jessica. Apparently, Britney Spears was unavailable. Instead of inviting the Louisiana native to sing the national anthem at Sunday's Sugar Bowl, game officials turned to another pop princess. Jessica Simpson will warble the song. And she'll do it live, without the benefit of the usual lip synching. Considering Simpson's air-headed reputation for saying dumb things, singing the national anthem live could be as exciting as the game. Read more.

Nick And Jess Treated Like A-Listers In Miami
The New York Post reports that while taking a break from rehearsing for their Orange Bowl halftime performance on New Year's Eve in Miami, 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey and wife Jessica Simpson were whisked by ambulance with a police escort to a party at Opium Garden. Once their, they enjoyed a midnight toast with the likes of Derek Jeter, Janet Jackson, the Wayans brothers, Adrien Brody, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Capriati. PopDirt.com.

Lachey's solo debut is lukewarm at best
Thanks to the MTV reality show "The Newlyweds," Nick Lachey has become a guy you want to like. His role as the harried, good-natured husband of Jessica Simpson practically earns him sainthood status, not just because of his patience, but also because he transmits a persona that is hard-working and genuine.
