Fresh from a transatlantic flight, Jessica Simpson was spotted arriving at Heathrow International Airport in London, England today (September 22). Accompanied by stylist BFF Ken Paves, the “Come on Over” songstress looked a bit down as she strolled past paparazzi hiding behind a pair of sunglasses and carrying a massive handbag.

After losing her beloved Maltipoo Daisy to a coyote attack, Jessica Simpson may be at the lowest point of her life, friends fear.
“Daisy was her baby,” one of them tells PEOPLE. “It’s going to put her into a tailspin. It will put her into the worst place ever.”
Daisy was snatched away by a coyote before Simpson’s very eyes in Los Angeles last week, and, despite Simpson’s refusal to quit searching and offer of a reward, no sign has been seen of the caramel-colored dog. She was given the dog by [her] then-husband Nick Lachey in 2004, and Jessica and Daisy became inseparable.
“She won’t leave her parents’ house,” a source says.
“Whenever things went wrong for Jessica, she reached for Daisy,” another source, a friend, says. “Daisy was her security blanket. When people let her down, she always had Daisy.”
On Sept. 19, her stylist pal Ken Paves convinced Simpson to finally leave her parents’ house. They went to Vino in Encino, Calif., for an attempt to perk her up.
“Jessica seemed okay, but wasn’t smiling much,” an onlooker says. “The wine made her relax a bit, but it was still obvious that she was having a devastating week.”
Daisy was perhaps one of the most pampered pets in Hollywood. Simpson fed Daisy steak, not dog food, and referred to herself as “Daisy’s Mommy.” When leaving the house, Simpson left on the air-conditioning for her dog; and when Daisy was sick, Simpson refused visitors so that they wouldn’t wake Daisy. She threw Daisy birthday parties, and when she talked about having a “girls’ night in” with a video, she was talking about herself and Daisy.
“Jessica has a very small inner circle,” the friend said. “But she always had Daisy. Daisy gave her unconditional love.”
And, unlike some of the men in her life, the friend added, “Daisy never betrayed her. Daisy was always there for her. This is serious. Jessica’s heart is broken.”
Whenever she was out at night, Simpson called home and had “someone put Daisy on the phone so she could say goodnight.”
“Daisy ran the household,” the friend said. “If Daisy didn’t like you, you were gone. Sometimes if her regular hair and makeup people weren’t available and Jessica had a sit-in, if Daisy didn’t like them, they wouldn’t be back. Daisy ran the roost.”
When Simpson was having relationship problems, “she would cry herself to sleep at night, using Daisy as a pillow.”
It won’t be easy to find a replacement, another friend said.
“Jessica is very needy. She is very clingy,” the friend said. “She is so sweet, but sometimes because of that she’s hard to be around. It’s not always easy. She hates to be alone. That’s what happened with [ex-boyfriend and Dallas Cowboys quarterback] Tony [Romo]. Jessica smothers people. She doesn’t really have any hobbies. Daisy was exactly what Jessica needed.”
All of the sources agreed on one point: It’s been a tough year for Jessica Simpson.
“I want her to catch a break,” the first friend said.
Here’s a photo of Jessica’s Godson Dylan – born 2 years ago – with Jessica (his Godmother), Ken (his Godfather) and Erin, his mom :-) So adorable!
Jessica Simpson is still looking for her pooch Daisy — who was snatched from her backyard by a coyote Monday — even though she has a “pretty strong feeling” she won’t be found.
A rep for FindToto.com — which called 1,000 of the singer’s neighbors to help find the five-year-old maltipoo earlier this week — tells Usmagazine.com they’ve called off the search.
“We’ve actually discontinued the search entirely,” the company’s spokeswoman, Colleen Busch, tells Us. “We’ve contacted Jessica and asked them if they want us to put out more Findtoto alerts, and they don’t.”
Busch says Simpson and her friends are “trying to be positive but they just have a pretty strong feeling she isn’t going to be found. We just didn’t get any leads.”
On Wednesday, Simpson posted that she was “still holding out hope” of finding her pup — a gift from ex Nick Lachey — even though celeb dog trainer Jennifer McCarthy told Us “she’s probably not alive.”
At Us’ 25 Stylish Most New Yorkers party Martha Stewart told Us that Simpson “should have watched it more closely…she should have been more careful.”
She advised the heartbroken singer to “get another dog.”

Cynics would say that a maltipoo snatched by a hungry coyote on Monday probably wouldn’t be alive on Thursday, but Jessica Simpson isn’t giving up hope of seeing her beloved Daisy again.
“Still holding out hope despite the a–holes that say is it a dumb thing to do. Daisy is my baby … why would I stop searching? I’m a mom,” she wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.
At 8:13 p.m. Monday night, Simpson, 29, Tweeted that her dog, a maltipoo she’d owned for five years, had been taken by a coyote as she watched in Los Angeles.
“My heart is broken because a coyote took my precious Daisy right in front of our eyes. HORROR!” She Tweeted. “We are searching. Hoping. Please help!”
By Wednesday, a dog-finding service, FindToto.com, had been making calls to some 1,000 of her neighbors asking if they’d spotted any sign of the missing Daisy. She also created a sign offering a reward for her dog’s return.
On Tuesday night, however, she apparently took at least a one-hour break from searching and grieving.
“Everyone watch my beautiful sister be a creepy b—h on Melrose Place tonight!!!” she wrote on Twitter at 10:10 p.m. “Tune in! xo”

After being interviewed for english “Marie Claire” and appearing in the TV series “The World … and me” – that will air in January at Channel 4 of british tv – Ângela Bismarchi was interviewed for Jessica Simpson’s upcoming reality show “The Price of Beauty”.
The tv show, that will broadcast what common women and also celebrities do to follow beauty patterns around the world, selected brazilian Ângela Bismarchi because of the more than 40 plastic surgeries she had done on behalf of beauty. But brazilian landscapes might also have aided her to get picked.
“I am really anxious to find out how beauty is seen in different cultures and see the crazy things people do to feel pretty.”, declared Jessica Simpson to USWeekly.com website.
Jessica and Ângela met each other for the shooting this Wednesday, September the 9th, and the climate was, apparently, of fun.
“The shooting was ok. Jessica was very nice, she is very pretty, and she wanted to see my boob job. I had to take off my blouse to show them how my boobs looked after surgery. She complimented them and said they looked very natural”, told Ângela. The shooting took place at the sands of Ipanema beach (Rio de Janeiro)
Beyond all the conversation, the staff of “The Price of Beauty” brought “Caipirinha “ (brazilian famous drink made of lemon and cachaça) for Jessica to drink during the interview.
“Foreigners love those things when they get here, right? She really drank it (Caipirinha). It wasn’t just for the tv show. Since I don’t drink alcohol I didn’t get one myself”, goofed Ângela.
“The Price of Beauty” is being produced by RDF. The company tried to keep the tv show a secret, but decided to shoot with Ângela Bismarchi at Ipanema beach…the result? A place filled with paparazzi and the first shoots of Ângela in action right here at “EGO”.

Ashlee Simpson may only be 24, but she’s got one thing older sis Jess wants: a baby.
“She’s always saying, ‘Oh, I want a baby!’ ” Simpson tells October’s Redbook, on sale Sept. 22. “Being a mom’s so empowering and incredible. I’m one of those people who believes that life brings things to you at a certain time for a certain reason, and if you just go with it, that’s where the best moments come from.”
Having her son, Bronx, not only calmed down the once wild singer-turned-actress, it also helped her mature as a person, she says.
“I’ve grown up so much,” she says. “Your body is changing, and it’s such an amazing time to feel that connection … Being pregnant was the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. Except for the cupcakes.”
When asked about whether she envies sister Jessica, 29, for her freedom as a single gal, Ashlee responds: “I really don’t.”
