Culture: Jessica Simpson had a bit of a breakdown last night

  • Worst part? It was on stage. Simpson has had a lot on her plate lately, what with some jerks in the media giving her guff about apparent weight gain. (Her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, has her back.) Anyway, at a show in Grand Rapids, Mich., where Simpson was opening for Rascal Flatts, she was having trouble keeping her composure, forgot lyrics and was a big freaking mess. What was to blame? Possibly boyfriend Tony Romo’s lack of appearance at the show. He missed his flight. source

Culture: Nick Lachey to media: Leave Jessica ALONE!

  • I think it’s ridiculous that the media is making such a big deal about it. It’s ridiculous that it would be making headlines. But you can’t believe everything that’s written or reported in the media. I wish her nothing but happiness.
  • Nick Lachey • on his ex-wife, pop star Jessica Simpson, and her apparent weight gain, as shown in photos plastered all over the Interweb. So what if she’s fat? We’ve been packing on the pounds ourselves. Seriously, Pizza Hut is freaking tasty. We’re vegetarian though, so Chicken of the Sea is off-limits. • source
