Songstress Jessica Simpson gets real for Houston crowd
Staying true to yourself has become a selling point in today's pop music market. Many singers -- from J-Lo to Whitney Houston -- constantly talk about "keeping it real." The "reality," however, usually has more to do with clever lyrics than personal beliefs. Jessica Simpson has made a career out of being herself. During an uneven 75-minute set, Simpson showcased much of the spunky personality and goofy charm that has made her a pop-culture phenomenon. Read more.

Jessica Simpson gladly leaves home for a reality check on tour
Compared with the daily grind and intrusive cameras of her hit MTV show with husband Nick Lachey, being on a concert tour feels refreshingly normal for Jessica Simpson.
"I love being out on tour because every day is a different day, but it's also more relaxed and you're not running around like crazy," said the blonde, 24-year-old star of MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica."
"You hang out during the day, you do a meet-and-greet with fans, you warm up for the show and then you do the show. So that's kind of what my days are like. It's actually pretty normal."

Ashlee Simpson took part in a Q&A with MSN visitors and was asked if she would consider doing a duet with her sister Jessica Simpson.

Claiming that they aren't newlyweds anymore, pop couple Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey say they are pulling the plug on their popular Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica MTV reality series with the conclusion of the program's current third season.
"Done!" Simpson told US Weekly magazine during an interview. "We're not newlyweds anymore. We've had our share of the cameras. We're at a point where we'll want everything for ourselves and our family."

Jessica Simpson: Days of Our Lives Star Cheated on Me with LeAnn Rimes!
Reality show star and singer Jessica Simpson revealed on a recent episode of Newlyweds that an actor on Days of Our Lives cheated on her when she was 18.
That actor is believed to be Jensen Ackles, who played Eric on the soap opera. He said he loved Simpson while dating country-pop singer LeAnn Rimes, according to an Ireland paper.
Ackles and Simpson both hail from Texas. Rimes had a cameo on Days of Our Lives in 1998, playing Madison. Ackles left Days in 2000 and is shooting a movie called Devour, scheduled for release next year.

Jessica Simpson's "Reality Tour" stops at the SBC Center
She has a hit MTV show, a happy marriage and she'll soon be on the big screen as Daisy Duke, but on top of all that she's also a chart topping singer.
Jessica Simpson brought her "Reality Tour" to the SBC Center Friday night.
It was the latest stop on her North American summer tour to promote her third album "In this Skin," which has gone double platinum.
The 24-year old Texan stopped in the Alamo City in her first-ever concert tour and young fans couldn't get enough of her.
Angels - Dance Mix From Robbie: "As you may or may not have noticed, "Angels" isn't performing as well as "With You" or
"Take My Breath Away" on the U.S. pop charts. Most pop stations are playing but aren't playing it as
much as the other songs because it's a ballad and it's summer, which is traditionally a time for more
upbeat music. In an effort to get the song to chart higher, Columbia Records has shipped a dance mix to
CHR/Pop stations in order to increase spins. It's worked on my station. Every time we play "Angels"
now, we play this version."
Thanks for sharing Robbie! Download the remix here.

July 15th, 2004 Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey may start family
Pop star couple Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey want to go from "Newlyweds" to "Parenthood."
The married stars of the MTV reality series "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" tell Us Weekly magazine they plan to start a family in the not-too-distant future.
"I don't think it will be in six months or a year, but after that, Nick's getting old," the 24-year-old Simpson told the magazine.
The 30-year-old Lachey told Us at a Big Brothers Big Sisters event in New York City: "We'd love to have our own children, but we have a heart for kids, and we'd love to adopt."
The couple are considering adopting a teenage child from an underdeveloped country. As a teen, Simpson and her family regularly visited an orphanage in Mexico.
However, cameras likely won't be invited into family life. The couple say this may be the last season for their MTV show.
"Done!" insists Simpson. "We're not newlyweds anymore. We've had our share of the cameras. We're at a point where we'll want everything for ourselves and our family."

Jessica Simpson confession
Jessica Simpson has confessed she - not husband Nick Lachey - wanted to break her pre-marital sex ban.
The stunning singer, who famously lost her virginity on her wedding night, has admitted former boyband star Nick had to "fend her off" when she got too amorous, because he knew she would regret it.
Jessica revealed to Britain's Sunday Times Style magazine: "Nick was for real. He completely respected me for it, and the closer we got, it was often him having to fend me off. It was hard, but he knew I'd hate myself - and him - in the morning."

July 7th, 2004 Ashlee Simpson Has Nothing To Be Sorry For
MTV News caught up with Ashlee Simpson for a Q&A and asked about her next single, 'Shadow,' which is about her sister Jessica Simpson. "It's about my sister and it's about finding my identity and finding who I am as a person and what it is that I'm gonna be and all that kind of stuff," she said. "There was a while where I felt I was so sorry for everything and I was just like, 'Oh my God, I'm so sorry!' And basically, it's like I'm stepping up and saying I have nothing to be sorry for, you know what I mean? It's about coming into my own."
Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, Bond Girl?
Pop babe and Newlyweds star Jessica Simpson could become a sexy Bond girl.

Simpson, 23, who has become hot property since appearing with husband Nick Lachey in the MTV reality series Newlyweds, is performing around the US on her Reality Tour.

Thanks again Robbie! We do have the best insiders! :D
More UK single news
Robbie, our radio insider, had this to say about Jessica releasing 'Angels' overseas: "With all this info about Jessica singles in the U.K. coming out, it'll definitely be something interesting to watch. In a conversation I had with Columbia Records's Nation Director Of Top 40 Promotions, we discussed Jessica releasing "Angel" overseas and he said he felt they most likely would not release "Angels" overseas. The reasoning is because it could be a bit of a gamble because of the HUGE Robbie Williams fan base. He has very hardcore fans in Europe who are likely to feel that Jessica butchered the song and it's success is questionable overseas."
Thanks for keeping us updated Robbie :)

But, Ryan stopped to laugh and recalls an embarrassing moment he had with the family, mentioning that even he makes mistakes. "Just recently, I was backing out of the driveway and suddenly I hear this crash," he revealed. "I look back only to realize I had hit Jessica Simpson's brand new Mercedes Benz. I considered just driving away, but then her car alarm went off and the whole family came running." He felt terrible and admitted he was almost in tears. But to his relief,
Jessica didn't make a big deal about the wreck and said she didn't like the car anyway. Read more.
