Jessica Simpson needs to dump her dad. Not only is he getting in the way of her marriage, but he is making terrible deals with failing magazines. The supposed deal with OK! is pissing off other tabloids so they are starting to write nasty things about Jessica. We can't blame them.
Radar is reporting that US Weekly is so angry about the deal Joe Simpson made with the devil that they are fine creating divorce stories about Nick and Jessica. They wrote:
The $200,000, 2-year devil deal, set up in August by her gossip-column feeding stage dad, Joe Simpson, reportedly locked the Dukes of Hazard starlet into a six-cover commitment, and prohibited her from giving other tabs feature-worthy accessâ€”making a lot of cheesecake-hungry editors angry.
â€œUs used to have a spectacular relationship with Jessica, right down to having their fashion editor style her for major events and photographing the whole process,â€? says an editor at one of the spurned weeklies. â€œShe also had a great deal with People, who put her birthday party on their cover with all sorts of flattering photos inside. When Joe sold her out to OK!, he gave up her chance to work with People, Us or anyone else and now sheâ€™s paying for it.â€?
Joe probably doesn't care. He loves to see his girls on the covers of magazines - good or bad. And with all this press going on it's a nice reminder that sister Ashlee is going to be on SNL this weekend. We think if Jessica wants to really be an A-lister she needs to dump Daddy and get some real management.
