Jessica Simpson: singer, reality star, actress - publicist? Wow, she should be named employee of the month for all the jobs she's been doing lately. We heard rumors that she was handling her own damage control but you can't blame her after the PR disaster when it was declared that she was madly in love with John Mayer. Here's more:
"It's been very emotional," she says, "But I am my own publicist right now. I've called all the heads of the tabloids. I don't want anyone else to speak for me now."
The former NEWLYWEDS: NICK + JESSICA star claims she wanted to talk to editors personally about all of the hurtful stories and try and move past her bitter feelings towards them. She adds, "It felt good to call them, but it was hard to find forgiveness. But that's one of my best qualities, I'm very forgiving." Simpson says she knows exactly who leaks information to the media when she reads the tabloid reports adding, "I know who they are, and none are my friends. "Trust me, if inside sources were my friends, the magazines would have a lot juicier info!"
Sounds like the tabloids aren't digging deep enough and it's almost as if Jess wants us to be even more curious about her life. Anyway, as long as she doesn't start couch jumping on talk shows like Tom Cruise did after he dumped his publicist, I think she's okay. Based on her recent visit to Rachael Ray - so far so good. Here are pics from her appearance on the show so just
