Lachey Is 'Hot' for Gina Gershon
Singer/reality star Nick Lachey will star in ABC's comedy "Hot Mamma," which centers on hip wedding planner/single mom (Gina Gershon ) and her more conservative daughter. Lachey will play a struggling actor who works odd jobs and runs errands for the women in exchange for boarding. The casting stems from Lachey's development/talent deal with ABC and its Disney-owned corporate sibling, Touchstone TV. Lachey recently did guest shots on NBC's "American Dreams" and ABC's "I'm With Her." He also filmed a variety special for ABC with his wife, Jessica Simpson , also as part of his overall deal.

Starring Jessica Simpson As ... Jessica Sampson
People might accuse Jessica Simpson of being a dumb blonde, but no one's going to make more fun of her than herself on her ABC sitcom-in-the-works. The concept? She'll play a pop-culture phenomenon — named Jessica Sampson. Read more.

Jessica Simpson Asks For Eyebrow Advice
Jessica Simpson asked 'Queer Eye' star Carson Kressley if it is ok to have light blonde hair and dark eyebrows in the latest Us Weekly. Carson responded, "Oh, Jessica! Contrary to popular belief, the rugs don't always have to match the drapes. Mine certainly don't! ... What you don't want to see is platinum blonde hair and dark black eyebrows. That would be a little too Madonna in 'Desperately Seeking Susan'." PopDirt.com

You can also download "Sure Thing" & "If We Believe In Love" mp3s again in the Audio section.

Dress like Jess
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Jessica Simpson's ego should be off the charts. She may be a tad, well, vacant on matters of tuna and buffalo wings, but she's a Mensa-level genius when it comes to fashion. Her style sense is so shrewd that a swath of other actresses and music divas have hit the red carpet mimicking some of Simpson's hottest looks. Read more.

Leave It To Cleavage
From Robbie Nicholson: "This info comes from R&R Street Talk, which is faxed to stations on a daily basis....I just didn't spot this until today, haha.

WIHT (Hot 99.5)/Washington's Hot Morning Mess, a.k.a. Mark Kaye and Kris Gamble, spent Sunday evening with Jessica Simpson and, in the process, managed to squeeze some top-secret info out of her father/manager, Joe, about Nick & Jessica's upcoming ABC variety show. "Jessica was one of many stars in town for a performance for the President at Ford's Theater," says Kaye. "Before her dress rehearsal, Kris and I hosted 20 listeners at an intimate brunch with Jessica in her hotel." That's when the enterprising duo split up and went to work: While Mark was busy ogling, er, interviewing Simpson, Gamble was across the room pumping Joe -- for info. "I remember Joe prefaced the following with 'I'm not supposed to say anything yet, but...'" relays Gamble. "It's amazing what three mimosas and some cleavage will do to a man!"

'Don't Tell Anyone, But...'
"According to Joe," says Gamble, "Mr. T makes a special guest appearance on the program. Also, Nick does a duet with KITT from Knight Rider...yes, the car. Finally -- and this is the big secret," says Gamble, "Jessica has been cast as Daisy Duke in the upcoming film version of The Dukes Of Hazzard. Plus -- and this is the really big news - Dolly Parton will be playing her mother!" Kaye adds, "You heard it first on The Hot Morning Mess with Mark & Cleavage - I mean Kris!"

SK.net in NY Daily News!
Sweet Kisses was mentioned in the NY Daily News newspaper! OMG that's so exciting! Thanks to Coleen & Lisa for letting me know and congrats to Jessica-Simpson.org for being mentioned as well! :D We rock!! Read the article below.

"Jessica Simpson, 23, may be best known for her ditsiness, but she's certainly made some smart moves in her career. The former contemporary Christian singer became a household name when she embarked on "Newlyweds," the MTV reality show that documents Simpson's life with her new husband, Nick Lachey of the group 98 Degrees. The hit show is in its second season and has attracted fans who otherwise may never have heard Simpson's R&B pop. Her latest CD, "In This Skin," is at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart.

On Simpson's official site (www.jessicasimpson.com) fans can listen to songs, look at pictures or scroll through "Jessica's Corner," a diary addressed to her fans.

Download recent performances at www.jessica-simpson.org. It also has a career timeline, a discography, her inspirations, lyrics and quotes. The news section includes Simpson's thoughts on a recent trip to the White House. She relaxed only after the President winked at her when - surprise - she botched the words to "God Bless America."

MTV's "Newlyweds" site (www.mtv.com/onair/newlyweds/nick_and_jessica) features fun links, a preview of the next episode and a clip from the infamous "Chicken of the Sea" episode. Read more of Simpson's "words of wisdom" at E Online's site (www.eonline.com/features/features/simpson), including her declaration that she "doesn't eaet buffalo," as she said when offered a plate of buffalo wings.

"Sweet Kisses" (www.sweetkisses.net) features more gaffes from Simpson's Washington trip, during which she complimented Interior Secretary Gale Norton on a great job decorating the White House. Read about a flub by President Bush himself at the event. If it were anyone else, you'd think flubbing was contagious.

Is the wedding party over?
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were just a couple of gorgeous, semi-successful pop stars when MTV crews began following them 24/7 to chronicle their first year of married bliss for the reality TV show ``Newlyweds.'' Jessica, a petulant blonde who apparently can't tell tuna from chicken, and self-absorbed Nick, a walking advertisement for ``I'm with Stupid'' T-shirts, obligingly bickered, cuddled, shopped, ate, pouted and whined on camera. Typical Jessica moments were her refusal of Buffalo wings because ``I don't eat buffalo.'' Or wondering, ``Is that weird, taking my Louis Vuitton bag camping?'' Read more.

Clarkson shines brighter than 'newlywed' Simpson
Jessica Simpson has been making the rounds at Reliant Center lately. She performed in KRBE's Jingle Jam in December, then opened the Super Bowl half-time show with a one-sentence cheer to the crowd. At RodeoHouston on Tuesday night, Simpson -- with husband Nick Lachey in tow -- gave a barely average pop performance.

Lachey opened the night touting the couple's MTV reality show, Newlyweds, and their new variety show to air in April. Then he performed the ballad This I Swear, the show's theme song. It was an uneventful performance, but the highlight clearly was when Lachey voiced his experience at the rodeo.

"Jessica and I went to the petting zoo today," he said. "I was petting the sheep, goats or llamas, whatever they're called. It ate my shirt and it left, what do you call it, cud? But I'm having a great time." It was an awkward moment in front of an audience of RodeoHouston fans.

When Lachey turned the stage over to Simpson, it became the Simpson show, though it was marred by technical difficulties. She opened with I Think I'm in Love with You and followed with one of her favorites, I Wanna Love You Forever. She strained during the latter part of the song, and her voice faded in and out because of microphone problems. Read more and watch video of Jess and Nick watching pig races here.

Bush And Simpson Both Prove Prone To Verbal Gaffes
The Washington Post reports President Bush commited a verbal gaffe when referring to Jessica Simpson's role on MTV's 'Newlyweds' at Ford's Theatre on Sunday night for the taping of the 'An American Celebration at Ford's Theatre' on Sunday (March 14). Bush told the audience, "Jessica Simpson is here with us, which means we've finally introduced reality TV to the Lincoln Theater." Bush was actually speaking from Ford's Theatre, though President Lincoln was shot there. Meanwhile, Jessica committed a gaffe herself when visiting the White House on Sunday. When she was introduced to Interior Secretary Gale Norton, she gushed: "You've done a nice job decorating the White House." PopDirt.com

Jessica Simpson Gets A Wink From Bush
Jessica Simpson entertained President and Mrs. Bush for 'An American Celebration at Ford's Theater' ­on Sunday. Asked if she was nervous about the performance, Simpson told 'Extra': "I can perform in front of 80,000 people, but if it’s in front of the president, there’s something about that that makes me nervous. But last time I sang at the White House I messed up the words to 'God Bless America' and he winked at me, so now I don’t care anymore, if I mess up I know I get a wink." PopDirt.com

Nick Lachey Can't Match Wife's 'Newlyweds' Success
With the success of Jessica Simpson's re-released 'In This Skin', her husband Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees admits he's frustrated that he hasn't been able to attain the same success from 'Newlyweds'. "It's been frustrating," he told Details magazine. "For Jessica, the show has translated into musical success. For me, it's been a little bizarre. I'm now more recognised as the start of a reality-television program than as a musician." PopDirt.com

Nick Literally Took Jessica's 'Breath Away'
According to MTV News, Jessica Simpson says Nick Lachey took her breath away when they first met. "I've been obsessed with 'Take My Breath Away' for a very long time," Simpson said. "The first time Nick hugged me, I had to back up against the wall," Simpson said. "It sounds corny, but it literally took the breath out of me. I would break out in hives, be all nervous, because he completely consumed every inch of me." She told of how she once set the mood with what would become the couple's special song. "We were in the car, it was pouring down rain, and I just went in for the kiss," Simpson said. "And in the middle of it, I stopped the whole kiss, and put on 'Take My Breath Away,' because he was the guy who took my breath away. I wanted that moment to be that romantic scene, [from 'Top Gun'] and it was." You can also watch the making of the video for 'Take My Breath Away' on Tuesday, April 6, at 6:00 pm ET. on MTV.

Shanna's Good Morning America encounter
From Shanna: "Hi - My name is Shanna Vitaliano. Im 15 years old, and I met Jessica on March 3rd at Good Morning America in NYC. I live in New Jersey, so we left at 4 in the morning to make sure we got a chance to see her. We ended up being the first people there .. and got to stand right in the front. When she came out , she lit the whole room up. She is so beautiful, and one of the nicest people ive ever met. I couldnt believe she was standing so close to me. After she performed she came over to me and 2 of my friends ( we were holding huge collages of her) and gave us each a hug and thanked us . I was in shock when she came over and did that, I never imagined me getting a chance to talk to my all time role model. After she hugged and thanked us, she took a picture with me. It was by far the most amazing day of my life, and I thank her so much for making my dream come true. =)"

Thank you for sharing! Shanna also sent some pictures, check them out below :)

Jessica Simpson's hubby wants to be Cincinnati mayor!
After having dabbled with music, Nick Lachey now wants to flirt with politics! According to a report in 'Rate the Music.com', Jessica Simpson's husband, is completely bitten by the political bug. So much so that the hunk wants to run for mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, following in the footsteps of celebrity mayor-cum-talk show king Jerry Springer. The former '98 Degrees' singer has been brought up in the city and is sick of the bad reputation that his hometown has acquired in recent years. "I'd like to make a difference there. I see my hometown going through a bunch of crap. It's a town that's asleep and nobody cares," Lachey said. WebIndia123.com

Nick And Jessica Are Still In Love

From Stephanie: "I just wanted to let you know that I was one of the radio winners from Q102 that won her autographed CD, and also the private meet and greet before her signing in Walmart Turnersville (Washington Twp,) NJ.

Jessica arrived approximately at 3:34 pm, and they brought her in the back of the store. She was in the employee break room where she had veggie dip and a large shrimp cocktail waiting for her. The security was very tight, Q102 had given us a wristlet that we had to wear and show to every bodyguard, every member of security the entire way back to where Jessica was located at.

We had the opportunity for 30 minutes before the signing began to talk to Jessica, express our concerns, and take pictures with her. Q102 took pictures of each of us (we were allowed to bring one guest) and they are sending us an 8 by 10 along with Jessica in the picture with us.

Jessica did not have the opportunity to sign everyone's album cover because she had a flight to catch from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. She told the winners that she has not seen Nick in a week because she has been in NYC and was "eager to return back to him." She told us that he is good however, but has been "very busy." I am glad to see that the security was tighter than Massachusetts, and no one was hurt. Security had to demand that people behave themselves "or Jessica would be leaving." She was very nice to the radio winners, and spent alot of time taking pictures, listening to their concerns, and writing out some extra autographs for us to cherish. I will definitely remember this day, because I have never had the red carpet rolled out for me, and it felt so good to meet Jessica and hang out with her before the signing and anyone else could see her."

Stephanie also sent me her pictures of Jessica! Check them out below, thanks Stephanie :)

Fans get in long line for Jessica Simpson
Fans numbering around two thousand lined up around the Wal-Mart store here Friday for a chance to catch a glimpse and even an autograph of one of biggest names in pop music today - not to mention one-half of MTV's "Newlyweds" - Jessica Simpson. Read more. I added some pictures from the NJ signing here, once again - if anyone was there and took pictures please send them in :)

Jessica Simpson in New Jersey
Fans have surrounded a Wal-Mart store in Washington Township, New Jersey for a chance to see the pop singer Jessica Simpson in person. The line formed early and never let up. No doubt about it NJ loves Jess as in singer Jessica Simpson whose reality show newlyweds has become nothing short of a phenomenon. And a pop princess who isn't controversial having been very vocal about maintaining her virginity until her marriage a little over a year ago to fellow pop singer Nick Lachey who obviously popped for one gigantic engagement ring. Wal Mart employees did their best to manage the crowd along with local police. There was some pushing and shoving and among the crowd of an estimated 5-thousand plenty of Jessica look-a-likes. Simpson is touring parts of the east coast to promote her latest CD "In this Skin". Watch the video here.

Fan encounter
From Pina: "I met Jessica today at the Walmart in Turnersville. The line was huge and they told the people around me we had slim to no chance of getting to see her but I really wanted to meet her so we waited and I think we just made it in with a few people behind us. When we saw her we had to move quickly and she wasn't really taking pictures, but she signed my CD and she was just so nice! I didn't know what to say when I met her but I think I said "Nice to meet you" and she said "Nice to meet you too." But she was rally sweet and made me feel like she really liked me too =) It was definately worth the wait and I am so so thankful I got to meet her and hope I can meet her again =)"

Message from Jessica!
This statement just appeared at Jessica's Official Board!

"I want to thank all my fans in Danvers and Boston for coming to see me at the Danvers Wal*Mart yesterday. I am so sorry that I was not able to meet all of you. Given the large crowd, the police asked the store to shut down out of concern for your safety. I feel very blessed to have the love and support of my fans and hope to meet you all in the future.
--Love, Jessica"


PS. The date of the update is March 6th cuz it's already after midnight in Poland, just so you know :)

Fan experiences from NJ Walmart!
From Kim: "Well I am happy to say that I had a positive experience meeting Jessica. I waited five hours to meet Jessica but it was well worth the wait. She looked so beautiful as always and is so down to earth. I was surprised that I wasn't speechless but I said "Hi How are You" and she said Hi How are you? Nice to meet you. and I said Nice to meet you too. :-) I was so impressed at how well organized this was. Ton of security. Guess they learned from the other Walmart's mistake. We were around 400 in line and they think there were about 6000 people there and only 1000 got in I think. Unfortunately she didn't sign my I do book because she was only signing the cd but it's ok. I am glad I got to meet her, get an autograph, and got some nice pictures too. Can't wait to hear other's stories. :-)I am sorry that some of Jessica's die hard fans were unable to meet her yesterday but I blame the Walmart in MASS for that."

From xonodoubt69: "We got there round 2pm and we barely got to meet her.. They cut the line at three people behind us. I took pictures until i got up to her cause we couldn't take any near her face cause the security said the flash was starting to bother her eyes and she actually stayed til almost 6:30. I am so happy cause we just made it! I feel blessed! She signed my booklet and had a big smile on her face and said Hi. She's so pretty. I recognized the lady standing next to her from Newlyweds. I think one of Jess's friends or something. When it first started Security told us we had a slim to none chance of getting there but i never give up so i stayed and was so glad i did. There were sooooo many people there. It was nuts. And there were a bunch of police and news crews there. It seemed alot more organized too. I'm still so pshyched we got in. There was some drama though. Police had to take a few people away at the end cause they weren't listening to them and some really angry people. But i got a few pics and hopefully they come out good."

Another Danvers review
From Mandy: "Hey. I am a huge Jessica Simpson fan and my friends and I were at walmart in danvers for her autograph signing and I must say it was great meeting Jessica. She is so sweet in person, and as much as it was SOOO crowded, my friends and I were still able to get in and meet Jess. It was such a great experience and I got some great pics. I hope Jess comes back, because you bet that I will be there because Jess is so pretty and has a great sense of humor. I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed meeting Jessica Simpson. I can tell you that last night it was a HUGE turnout and luckily I got there by 3:30. But in my opinion the whole thing was worth it just to meet Jessica Simpson!!!"

About Danvers and people blaming Jessica
From lil Jessica: "hey I just want to say that who ever is thinking Jessica is so rude about not signing please think again..I have hung out with her and she is far from mean or rude....If you are a huge star like that the people you are around are going to be on the look out for you making it safer....if STATE troopers had to be called in to help...I don’t think it would be safe for crazy people to rush in ... I understand people are upset but put yourself in her position how would you feel...I know she feels bad also but if people are as much as a fan as they say they are they wouldn’t see the negative think the positive don’t worry she will come back again....just try harder next time to meet her...trust me when you do meet her you will rethink cuz she is really sweet!!!!!"

Danvers sighting
From SNLGirl88: "I went to the singing in Danvers Mass. I drove up from Rhode Island, and I got there at about 2:00. They had like 12 lines, I was in the second one but then I went up to the first one because people were cutting, and the police didn't do anything about it. Their were only about 3 cops on duty and the Wal*Mart people wern't doing anything! So I waited. Then they started taking 20 people from each line first. People who were just getting there when it started were pushing there way in! I went up front to see what was going on, and I got stuck in a mob of people! There were riots, car crashes, and people standing on cars, all screaming for Jessica. They could have handled it SO much better but they didn't."

Jessica, Britney May 'Duke' It Out Over Short Shorts
Britney Spears had better watch out — Jessica Simpson might just steal her Daisy Dukes right out from under her. Both have been said to be interested in the role of Bo and Luke Duke's hottest cousin, but the "Newlyweds" star is emerging as the favorite. Read more.

Pop Star's Appearance Leads To Arrests
Pop star Jessica Simpson's publicity stop at Wal-Mart in Danvers Thursday led to the arrest of four people, including one woman who said that she wasn't even there to see the singer. NewsCenter 5's Rhondella Richardson said that Letizia Passanisi, 18, of Amesbury, Mass., was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. Passanisi said that she was just pushing herself out of the crowds to safety. "This is ridiculous. I had no idea who was at Wal-Mart," Passanisi said. She said that she went to the store with her 1-year-old to buy diapers and had no interest in being part of the fan frenzy.

Simpson attracted a crowd of 6,000. Officials had to close the exits and ramps around Route 114. "I was pushing them with my hands, just pushing them by their chest. They were trampling on me. I was carrying a little baby in my arms, and they were arresting me. I had no idea this celebrity chick was going to be there," Passanisi said.

Julie James was there with her 13-year-old. "I was afraid. I was scared for my daughter," James said. "I saw a mother that was just shacking frantically and crying. Parents were screaming," "We had no idea Jessica Simpson was going to be there. I don't even know her music. I don't care (for) her. Her show makes me nauseous," Passanisi. "I was just trying to buy the baby diapers." Simpson stars on the MTV reality TV show "Newlyweds" with her husband. TheBostonChannel.com

Fans feel jilted by 'Newlyweds' star Simpson
An autograph session with pop sensation Jessica Simpson at a Danvers WalMart drew far more attention than the singer or store officials had expected last night, forcing an early exit by the reality TV star and making thousands of fans angry after they were turned away, WalMart employees said.

Simpson, who has gained popularity as star of the new MTV series "Newlyweds," was scheduled to appear at 6 p.m. yesterday and sign 300 autographs. But after arriving late, she left the store after a half-hour when Danvers police said the thousands waiting for a glimpse of Simpson posed a threat to public safety, said WalMart employee Sam Diplatzi.

About the signing in Danvers, again
From Alex: "Hey, I just thought I would tell you about what happened yesterday when Jessica came to Danvers, MA yesterday. She went to the WalMart in Danvers to sign copies of the expanded "In The Skin". There were over 6,000 people there. I wanted to go, but my mom wouldn't let me, but I am glad that I didn't. People started to line up for the event Wednesday night! And by 11:00AM on Wednesday there was already a line around the block! It was crazy, they had to call in the state troopers to keep the crowd under control. They said on the news last night that Jessica had NO idea what was going on outside. Three people were arrested and a bunch were hurt (just minor). I think she stayed untill like 7:00, and it started at 5:00 and there were still thousands of people waiting outside to see her. She called a local radio station later that night and said that she had no idea there were that many people there and if she had known she would have stayed longer. As she put it, she was "dragged" out of the store because the people she was with didn't think it was safe for her to be there. She felt really bad about it and is going to scheduel another event around here so those that were still waiting in line. I think that is wicked nice of her.

So I thought I would tell you about that :) She also caused MAJOR traffic problems. They had to close part of the main road because there were too many people. I have never seen anything like this happen when people come. Hope you can use this info some how :)"

Danvers - Walmart signing review
From Lysi: "I thought that the signing was horrible. I love Jessica, but I didn't like the signing. First, it started with too many people with too little time. Jessica arrived around 4:50-5:00 and I admit, she must have been a little scared since so many people surrounded the car, banging on the windows and taking pictures, while she was on the phone. But she went into the emptied out Wal-Mart until about 6 o'clock, and signed autographs until about 6:30- 6:40, and headed onto Rt 95. She said she would be signing from 5-7, and it wasn't true.. There were so many people there for a long time, I was there around 3:30, and my friend was there around 8am. Around 6, there were two lines, and they combined into a huge mob, people squished in the middle. I was in the very middle of the crowd, and I have to say that the security and police officers did not do much for the safety. A few fights broke out, swearing, and all kinds of threats were heard all around. For minutes lat a time, we didn't move, and myself, I could barely breathe. If you are thinking about heading to the NJ, CA, or TX ones, be prepared, and get there early in the morning if you actually want to meet her. I didn't have the chance to meet her, which made me very mad, and I felt at times my safety wasn't be covered enough. She said she was going to sign from 5-7, and it was only about 30-40 minutes, which made me mad. I was close to the front when she left, and it wasn't fair at all. Hopefully, she will come back, but it's highly doubtful that she will because she rarely comes to MA."

Jessica Simpson Speaks With WBLI, Blasts Us Weekly
Jessica Simpson phoned into the WBLI Steve & Maria show in Long Island on Thursday (March 4).

With the success of 'With You', she talked about adding two tracks to a re-release of her album. As for talk that Nick was jealous of the attention headed Jessica's way, she insisted that wasn't a story.

Parker: Over the hill?
How do you throw a birthday bash for a billionaire? You invite 300 of his best friends, hire an event planner, florist and caterer, rent the Fillmore Auditorium, create a Western theme and hire the birthday boy's favorite singer. Billionaire b-day boy Gary Magness couldn't wipe the goofy grin off his face when Jessica Simpson, whose career is hotter than a jalapeno right now, serenaded him Saturday night during his Big 5-0.
