Beverly Hills, USA, 29.09.2004: Jessica Simpson leaving the gym with her trainer escorting her to the parking lot in Beverly Hills.



Ashlee wants Jessica to become rockier
Ashlee Simpson is desperate for older sister Jessica to get into rock music. The pretty singer, who stars in MTV's 'The Ashlee Simpson Show', went straight to number one in America with her debut album, 'Autobiography', which is much rockier than her sister's pop music. She told Britain's OK magazine: "Our music is very different. I'm slowly trying to get her into rock music! I'm always trying to convert her. But I won't be singing pop ballads!" TeenMusic.com

- Rockier Jessica? Bad idea ;)

Paparazzi to Jessica Simpson's rescue!
The paparazzi are often not viewed too kindly, but singer and reality TV star Jessica Simpson, and she will beg to differ. Simpson recently revealed that when her car ran out of petrol, while shopping in Beverly Hills, the paparazzi following her stopped and helped her in refilling the car. According to ratethemusic.com, a grateful Jessica rewarded one of the photographers by signing the gas canister and handing it over to him. WebIndia123.com

Local retailer posts strong numbers, thanks to Jessica Simpson
A purveyor of French home accessories experienced a double measure of serendipity this year when it connected with two hot retailing trends. First was a cicada invasion of sorts that started during the Cincinnati Flower Show, where Sylvain Acher, owner of The French Rendez-Vous, accented his display with several ceramic cicadas. The insect-shaped objects, intended to hold lavender, are popular in the south of France. Read more.

Jessica Simpson's Atkins Diet Agony
Don't look for Jessica Simpson to endorse the Atkins' diet. In Touch magazine reports that after the singer was encouraged to go on the diet in 2001 to compete with the slimmer Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, the meat-eggs-and-cheese diet caused her emotional and physical problems. "Atkins really messed me up mentally," Jessica said, adding that she also suffered from bloating and constipation. After dropping down to 102 pounds and filming a video, she binged on carbs and gained all the weight back. Since then, Simpson has gone on a more reasonable eating plan. "I feel like curves are in," Simpson said. "They make your outfit look better, and I like having something to pinch." PopDirt.com

Jessica Quote
From OperationSmile.com: "Nick and I have gotten a lot of attention for doing a 'reality' show on television, but the ability to give a child his or her smile back is the kind of reality that really deserves the attention. We are both so happy to play a small part in the wonderful work Operation Smile does for children."

Trouble in newlywed paradise? Reps say no
Spokespersons for Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are jumping all over those ''troubled marriage'' rumors that are beginning to fly. ''Totally false'' and ''purely vicious and unfounded'' are among the comments made. A spokeswoman for Simpson also trashed stories about her family supposedly constantly dissing Lachey.

So I guess there really isn't anything to those stories about the former boy bandmate having a crush on Alyssa Milano.

In happier news, Lachey is following his wife's lead and working on a movie career -- snaring a key part in a new independent feature, ''The Hard Easy," starring Henry Thomas, David Boreanaz, Bruce Dern and Peter Weller.

Lachey will play a guy who escaped a rough neighborhood and found success in the business world as a high-powered accountant. When he discovers he's about to lose everything, Lachey's character reconnects with a bunch of old pals from his 'hood -- just as they're about to rob a big jewelry store. Unbeknownst to them, another gang is about to hit the same store. Chicago Sun Times

- I TOLD YA!!! :D

'Easy' money: Lachey set for indie heist pic
After testing his acting chops on the WB Network's "Charmed," Nick Lachey is making the move to the big screen, signing on for a role in the indie film "The Hard Easy." Shooting is under way in Los Angeles on the heist film, with Ari Ryan at the helm. Penned by Jon Lindstrom and Tom Schanley and produced by Platform Entertainment in association with Blue Star Pictures, the film also stars Henry Thomas, David Boreanaz, Vera Farmiga, Bruce Dern and Peter Weller. The story follows two groups of thieves who, unbeknownst to each other, attempt to rob the same jewelry store. Lachey will play a guy who gets out of his tough neighborhood to become a high-powered accountant. However, he winds up on the verge of losing it all and teams with one of the groups -- led by Weller's character -- to help out in the heist. HollywoodReporter.com

"Jessica Simpson is really cute and really talented; I like her and her husband, Nick, a lot."
"Nicole and I might have been naive about farming and stuff like that, but we weren't as naive as they portrayed us on the show. Well, would it have been as funny if we had known what we were doing the whole time? Would it be funny if Jessica Simpson didn't say things about checken of the sea?

Simpson and Murphy help revive hot pants craze
Jessica Simpson and Brittany Murphy are leading the way in a revived hot pants craze among Hollywood's trendsetters. The stars are huge fans of Rebecca Beeson's 1960s-inspired limited edition terry-cloth short shorts, which retail at $48 (GBP26) and are noted for their particularly flattering fit. Designer Beeson, who's based in San Francisco, California, says, "They give great butt - they give a little lift. But the rear doesn't hang out." Wearing the shorts should be good practice for Irresistible singer Simpson, who recently screen tested for the role of hot pants fanatic Daisy Duke in the upcoming movie remake of TV classic The Dukes Of Hazzard.

Lachey says, "It's actually been very good training for her for children one day. She feeds the dog. Occasionally she picks up the dog's poop, which is nice - I don't have to do it! The dog's great."

Gwyneth Paltrow is a big fan of Jessica Simpson!
Singer and reality TV show star Jessica Simpson's new fan is none other than actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who has appreciated her clean lifestyle, which she says is a great boost for America's image overseas.

Paltrow revealed that she thoroughly enjoyed the reality show and was happy to know that Jessica, who insisted on remaining a virgin until she was married and carried herself with grace and dignity, had a huge fan following.

"I'm just glad that there's one super-popular girl in America who's not drunk, sleeping with tons of people, and wearing incredibly revealing, inappropriate outfits. She's a post-modern Donna Reed," rate the music quoted the 'Shakespeare in Love' beauty as saying. WebIndia123.com

Exclusive Interview with Jessica Simpson
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Okay. What an assignment. The guys around the newsroom all wanted to go. We were joking that we'd have to have a lottery to see which two male photographers were chosen.

Of course, there are people who say, "Who's Jessica Simpson?" That included my Mom when I told her. But pop stars do come and go so you can't blame those folks.

I met Jessica after she rehearsed at Metro Park for the big Super Bowl kickoff to air on ABC nationwide. Everyone was making the same comment about Jessica. "Why did she wear a sweater?" Read more and watch cute video here.

From Robbie: "This information comes from The Bit X-Change, a radio show prep service:
One of the most important decisions in modern American cinema has been made: The producers of the upcoming "Dukes of Hazzard" movie have found their Duke Boys. And they are. . . SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT and JOHNNY KNOXVILLE. (???) Seann will play Bo, the blonde who was brought to life by JOHN SCHNEIDER back in the day, while Johnny takes over the role of Luke from TOM WOPAT.

--As far as anyone knows, JESSICA SIMPSON is still the frontrunner to play Daisy Duke. Now check THIS out. . . a name has emerged as a possible Boss Hogg. And that name is. . . BURT REYNOLDS.
--------

Also, I recently talked to my connection at Columbia Records (he's the National Director of Top 40 promotions) about the rumor Jessica may be releasing "I Have Loved You" as a 5th single off In This Skin and his reply was "probably not."

Thanks for updating us Robbie!

NFL Opening Kickoff - Fan Review
From Angie: "I went to the Superbowl Kickoff Concert in Metro Park tonight, that was airing on tv. I was with some of my friends, and we were wearing stickers from one of the local radio stations here, 97.9 on our shirts. They were giving the stickers out to people. Out of no where, guy comes up to us, that works for the station, and is like 'thanks for supporting 97.9, here's some backstage passes'. So before she show we got to meet Jessica (and Nick). Jessica is super sweet, tiny, and gorgeous! I talked to her for a little bit, because most people were either in "shock" and couldn't talk, or didn't know what to say. She's a cool person! My friend Jamie asked Jessica how she was, and Jessica said 'I'm cold, what about you' and Jamie said 'I'm wet' (it was raining most of the time, our feet got stuck in the mud actually and some people lost their shoes because they got stuck!!) and then Jamie walked away because she didn't know what else to say to Jessica, lol. The new Jacksonville QB, Leftwich, must be a happy guy, Jessica and Shania Twain have both worn his jersey. Not only is this is his first year as head quarterback, but football season has not even started yet. Jessica sang three songs before she was on live TV, and after she sang Angels, she said that everyone in Jacksonville has angels watching over them. (because Charley just missed us, and Frances didn't cause any real damage) After the first three songs, Jessica said 'I am going off stage now, but don't worry, I will be right back!!' and then they went to live TV. Jessica was very, very appreciative of everyone coming out in the rain. She thanked us a lot on camera, but before the live part, she thanked us a lot off camera. She really was, genuinely appreciative and grateful for everyone coming out in the rain to see her. I <3 Jess even more now. :)"

Thanks Angie!! You can check out pictures from WireImage.

Simpson fights for Daisy Duke role
Singer Jessica Simpson has everything crossed after sailing through her first audition for the role of Daisy Duke in the upcoming Dukes of Hazzard movie. Simpson has long been attached to the project and had her first casting call last week (ends03SEP04). She says, "I had to go out there and strut my butt. I actually wore a short skirt, I didn't actually wear (Daisy Duke) shorts." ContactMusic.com

Jet Slam Spears and Simpson
Australian rockers JET have blasted pop beauties BRITNEY SPEARS and JESSICA SIMPSON, labelling them 'talentless'. The ARE YOU GONNA BE MY GIRL? stars deem Spears and Simpson ideal contributors to their second album, which they joke will feature an endless stream of unskilled artists. Drummer CHRIS CESTER says, 'We want to get Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson to guest on (our new) album - as many talentless people as possible. 'We want as many people who don't write their own songs as possible. That's the whole point. What the world needs are more talentless people.' The quartet plan to start recording the follow-up to their 2003 debut GET BORN early next year (05). elitestv.com

Someone needs to update them on who wrote 'In This Skin' album...

Talk about overly cautious!
From Robbie: "I was listening to "The Ace & TJ Show" this morning and they were discussing the NFL Kickoff special tonight. Jessica had to submit her costumes to the NFL and network yesterday to determine if they were "appropriate" and the whole thing will run on a 10 second delay in case of another "wardrobe malfunction." I understand the precautions but has Jessica ever done anything "inappropriate?" Um....no."

(about J.Lo) "She sat down and I was like 'You're incredible' there's something warm and inviting about her" Theres also a mini-story (about 5 lines long) that made me cry nearly lol it said:
Jess Stres: Gorgeous Jessica Simpson may have bagged herself a celeb husband and a top career in showbiz, but she hasn't always been so popular. The singer has revealed she was bullied as a teenager. "Girls didn't like me. They wrote 'Die Bitch' in shoe polish on my sidewalk" she says!"

Jessica & Ashlee Set Chart Record Together
From Robbie: "I was just listening to American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest, and he said Jessica and Ashlee are the first sisters in chart history to both have #1 singles as solo artists.

I'm assuming he means the MediaBase/Radio & Records chart because both haven't gone to #1 on Billboard...unless Ashlee had the #1 selling single on Billboard. If that's the case, then both topped Billboard as well 'cuz Jessica's "I Wanna Love You Forever" was the #1 selling single for 6 weeks back in '99.

Either way, congrats to both girls :)"

Beverly Hills, USA. September 2 2004.

Jessica Simpson is worried about husband Nick Lachey's new role on the TV series 'Charmed', especially after Alyssa Milano talked about how "hot" the 98 Degrees star was. "Jessica tried to talk Nick out of doing the WB series but he wouldn't hear of it," an insider revealed. "He's seemingly been unhappy with the way his career has gone since he teamed up with wife Jessica on 'Newlyweds.' Nick sees this as his big break.

Liz Smith On Simpson's VMA Performance

But her fans adore her, so what do I know?" PopDirt.com

Jessica Simpson: Nick taught me how to be a star!
Sexy pop star JESSICA SIMPSON credits husband NICK LACHEY for her ability to handle the pressures of fame. The blonde beauty, who has been married to the former 98 DEGREES hunk for almost two years, was able to get an understanding of the celebrity world by watching her beau when she first got to know him. Simpson, who has gone on to be far more popular than Lachey, says, "I'm lucky I met Nick because he taught me how to be a celebrity. When I first met Nick, he had a number one single with 98 Degrees and he was on top of the world, and I got to watch how he carried himself.
"He was exactly the kind of celebrity that I wanted to be. He's such a man of character, and he's humble about everything. He's just been a great role model." ContactMusic.com

Simpson's Night Out Begins On Chaotic Note
Jessica Simpson was caught up in the midst of such a large scuffle as she went to an MTV Video Music Awards after-party on Sunday when she mistakenly believed gunshots were fired. The Irresistible singer, her sister Ashlee and their dad Joe were followed by an entourage to Miami, Florida, hot-spot Prive after the star-studded show, but were stunned to greet the troubles which had risen outside the club from too many people crowding the entrance.
Jessica says, "There was some sort of shooting outside or something. I don't know what happened, but I got carried in here so quick!" But police officer Bobby Hernandez is quick to clarify, "We had no shootings (on Sunday) night, but there could have been a scuffle." TeenMusic.com
