Living the Simpson life
Jessica Simpson is on magazine covers, on the radio, on the road, on the small screen, and soon to be on the big screen as The Dukes Of Hazzard character Daisy Duke. Some might see it as spreading yourself too thin, but the Texas native sees it otherwise.

"I'm young and I might not ever have these opportunities again," Simpson says on the phone this weekend. "So I'm going to take advantage of them now, just in case.

"I don't really live a normal life. I'm all over the place, but the weird thing is that I'm not in a bad mood about being stressed out and being spread out and doing so much. How can I complain about something that I've worked so hard for?" Read more.

Mandy Moore And Jessica Simpson Prom Stories

I went to homecoming, and some girl cussed me out [because I was famous]. Thanks for ruining prom!" And Simpson added, "I went to prom three years in a row, always with older guys. Even if I didn't like them, I'd make them like me just so that I'd get invited." PopDirt.com

Jessica Simpson Crossing Her Fingers For Some Good Ol' Boys
It's so close she can almost hear the General Lee's trademark "Dixie" horn. "The Daisy Duke role is getting closer and closer," Jessica Simpson said backstage at the recent Wango Tango On-Air festival. "You never know what's gonna happen, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that after the tour I will go straight into being Miss Daisy." Read more.

Jessica Simpson's New ABC Sitcom a No-Go
Jessica, the proposed ABC sitcom that was to spotlight the ditzy personality of Newlyweds favorite Jessica Simpson - as imagined by a writing staff assembled from Frasier, Spin City and 8 Simple Rules - will not be on the network's fall schedule, or on any schedule, The New York Times reports. "She was actually the best thing on it," said one ABC executive, who asked not to be identified. "It was a valiant effort, but at the end of the day everyone seemed to think it wasn't the best use of her talent." Jessica's father, Joe Simpson, who is also her manager, refused to speak about the show, but reportedly agreed with the network decision to pull the plug. The problem seemed to be that although the concept for the show was strong, with Simpson, 23, playing a TV interviewer who aspires to be Diane Sawyer, the execution was anything but. Real celebrities played themselves as the Simpson character interviewed subjects. The Times also reports that Joe Simpson apparently had second thoughts about locking his multitalented daughter, who will launch a live convert tour next month, into the weekly TV grind. People.com
(Thanks Becky!)

Jessica Simpson endorses eye surgeon's laser therapy!

The beautiful singer will be seen in print ads for the doctor with the punch line, "Everything looks beautiful." (ANI)

With You in UK
From Gary: "Just a quick note to let you know that the UK release of With You has now been pushed back by two weeks. It is now due for release on June 14th. I guess it's just to get the track two more weeks of exposure leading up to its release?! It can't have been pushed back to enable Jess do some European promo as she'll be in the middle of her Reality Tour." Thanks for the news!

Jessing Around
Jessica Simpson has beaten off competition from Britney Spears to land the coveted role of Daisy Duke in the forthcoming film The Dukes of Hazzard. Earlier in the year Britney looked a cert to climb into Daisy's ultra-short shorts, but now it seems producers have had a change of heart. "She is really excited," Jessica's father and manager, Joe, told Star magazine. "Daisy Duke is right down her alley." The remake of the early '80s cult TV show begins the summer, and Jessica will be working overtime, with the third season of her MTV Newlyweds returning in June as well. (thanks Melinda!)

Jessica Simpson knows how to work a computer!
Jessica Simpson is an extremely busy lady these days. What with preparations for her upcoming ``Reality'' tour, promoting everything from Pizza Hut to her edible cosmetics line, Dessert, and work on her hit MTV reality show ``The Newlyweds,'' the Texas native barely has time to open a can of chicken much less sit still for an interview. So, we chatted with the blonde bombshell about her Kiss Concert 2004 appearance via e-mail.
Here's a peek at some of our Q and A with Mrs. Nick Lachey. (thanks Melinda!)

Jessica Simpson to Promote Breath Mints
Jessica Simpson will star in commercials marketing Hershey's new breath mints. The commercials featuring the 23-year-old singer and her sister Ashlee are scheduled to begin airing nationally next week. In the spots, the two debate whether the Ice Breakers Liquid Ice breath mint is liquid or ice, a play off Simpson's unintentional humor when she confused the tuna she was eating for chicken on her MTV show, "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica," with husband Nick Lachey. "Jessica is a breath of fresh air with a terrific sense of humor right in tune with the Ice Breakers Liquid Ice brand," Thomas K. Hernquist, Hershey Foods Corp. senior vice president and chief marketing officer, said in a statement Monday. Hershey Foods recently tapped Latin pop star Thalia for a Hispanic market promotional campaign. Associated Press

Jessica Simpson Has Fresh Breath

Jessica will star in the television commercial with her sister Ashlee. Not one to miss the chance to flog her client's product Jessica says "As a busy newlywed and singer, I know how important it is to have fresh breath. Whether it's liquid or it's ice (Ashlee seems to think it's both) Liquid Ice does the trick. But I'm a little stumped, so I'm hoping everyone will try it, decide for themselves." Jessica is currently seen on the MTV reality show Newlyweds with her celebrity Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees. The show in is its second season in the USA. Undercover.com.au

Jess quote from Proactiv.com
"I just had so much build up and so many clogged pores that once I started using Proactiv Solution, my face was just shining. Looking back, I can just see how much I've grown and actually I know it sounds weird and crazy, but Proactiv had so much to do with it just because when, your confidence is fixed, everything else shines. I'm passionate about Proactiv because it worked for me and it gave me so much confidence. Today I can tell you that I'm a very confident woman because I love my skin." Proactive.com

Jessica Simpson's Most Challenging Brainteaser Yet: `Is It Liquid or Is It Ice?'
Jessica and Ashlee Simpson Introduce New Ice Breakers Liquid Ice Breath Mints, Hershey Foods' New Instant Breath Freshener.

She's having another Jessica moment. First she pondered: "Is it chicken? Or is it tuna?" Now, the new Ice Breakers Liquid Ice breath mints from Hershey Foods have provided singing and pop culture sensation Jessica Simpson with her biggest conundrum yet: "Is it liquid or is it ice?"

Jessica, one of the today's hottest celebrities, and her rising star sister, Ashlee, kicked off the launch of Liquid Ice breath mints today in New York City. With the addition of Ice Breakers Liquid Ice, Hershey Foods has created the next generation of mints -- a completely new way to deliver instant fresh breath. As cool as ice, the small round mints are filled with liquid -- an intense burst of flavor -- that dissolves immediately, leaving the mouth refreshed and revitalized.

"As a busy newlywed and singer, I know how important it is to have fresh breath," said Jessica. "Whether it's liquid or it's ice -- Ashlee seems to think it's both -- Liquid Ice does the trick. But I'm a little stumped, so I'm hoping everyone will try it, decide for themselves, and cast their vote at www.LiquidorIce.com." Read more. Click the thumb to enlarge pic!

Ashlee Simpson - Piece Of A Star!
"Pieces Of Me," the lead track from Ashlee Simpson's forthcoming debut CD, is scoring strong airplay at CHR/Pop stations. Ashlee's video for "Pieces Of Me" was just added to MTV. Simpson is due in stores on July 20th with Autobiography. Although she's the younger sister of Jessica Simpson, Ashlee says her sound is very different.
"Jessica and my personalities are so different," Ashlee told MTV. "We've always, always been into such different music. In fifth grade, I was obsessed with Green Day and was always going to punk shows, getting in the pit and gettin' dirty."
Ashlee says her punk and rock influences are clearly expressed on her forthcoming CD. "I love Mick Jagger, so some songs have a little '70s in it," she explained. "I love '80s rockers, so it has a little bit of that. The best thing about making an album is creating a sound. That's the fun part for us. I think people might be shocked."
Ashlee Simpson will appear on NBC's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Monday, May 24th and FOX's "Summer Music Mania" on June 3rd. To check out the acting career of the 19-year old star of "7th Heaven," go to http://imdb.com. For all things music, visit http://www.ashleesimpsonmusic.com. (thanks Robbie!)

Jessica Simpson Reluctant To Take Nick's Last Name
A source close to Jessica Simpson tells In Touch Weekly magazine the singer is reluctant not only to have children, but to take hubby Nick Lachey's last name, fearing it could hurt her career. "Any couple in the early stages of marriage will have difficulty balancing the need for individual success with establishing a 'we'," noted relationship expert Rochelle Adams. "But Jessica does a really good job incorporating Nick." And Nick's mother Cate Reinert added," Plus, they adore each other. You can see it when you watch them onscreen." PopDirt.com

Simpson's Sister's Sparks Debate At Debut Gig
Fans of Jessica Simpson's younger sister Ashlee were left analysing her lyrics last week, after she performed a song about "living in the shadow of someone else's dream".

Ashlee, 19, is due to release debut album Autobiography in the summera nd chose to share some of her work with fans at her first concert, which took place on April 26th at Hollywood's Knitting Factory.

And before performing her song Shadow, Ashlee told the crowd of about 90 people - including Jessica, 23, and her 30-year-old husband Nick Lachey - that the song was "about finding my own identity".

She sang, "I was living in the shadow of someone else's dream / Trying to find a hand to hold but every touch felt cold / I was living in a nightmare, a never-ending dream / But now that I am wide awake my chains are finally free / So don't feel sorry for me." TeenMusic.com

Jess & Nick mention in Sports Illustrated
"The track might have been sloppy at the Kentucky Derby, but Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey weren't. The pair were arguably Churchill Down's most stylish couple, thanks to her snuggly fitted pastel pink dress and wide-brimmed garden hat and his sharp black suit. (The two told anyone who approached that they wanted their privacy, as a crew from MTV's Newlyweds recorded their every move.)" Thanks to Jess!

Jessica Simpson coming to SoundAdvice
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to concerts, Sound Advice Amphitheatre announces a June 12 stop by Jessica Simpson's "Reality Tour." Of course, hubby Nick Lachey will be along for the wacky ride. Though it won't be answered by this show and probably not for several years, the ultimate question is being asked: Who will they become? This century's Steve and Eydie, Dolly and Porter or Ashford and (Valerie) Simpson? At least they can sing and dance, which is more than can be said for some pseudo-sexy acts that have come through recently. Tickets go on sale Saturday at $46 tops and $21 for the lawn.

Mischa Barton Refuses To Introduce Jessica Simpson At 'Divas'
Us Weekly reports 'The O.C.' star Mischa Barton was unwilling to share the stage with Jessica Simpson at the VH1 'Divas' concert in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand on April 18th. Barton refused to introduce Simpson, instead wanting to introduce what she probably felt was a more deserving diva. "Mischa was definitely insulted and acted like she was too good for Jessica," a source said. "She wanted to introduce Patti LaBelle or not participate at all." Another source sneered, "It's really ridiculous that Mischa would even think that she's a big enough star to introduce someone like Patti. After all, Jessica and Mischa are technically peers - they have the exact same fan base." PopDirt.com

The Dallas Morning News reports Jessica Simpson created quite the buzz when arriving at Nikita on Thursday night with 25 pals. Owner Russell Hayward whipped out his velvet rope and sealed off the VIP room at his West Village nightspot, and after their night of fun, the crowd that gathered around the rope showed their adulation. "On her way out, it was like something out of a Beatles' movie," Hayward said. "People were chanting 'Jessica, Jessica!'" PopDirt.com
