Jessica's Dad Wants A Big Piece of Tony Romo

Ah, the new Us Weekly. I'm not going to lie -- I wait with bated breath for my postman to deliver the glossy goodness every week -- but I'm a little over the whole "Joe Simpson is a money hungry scammer" angle.

We know all of this already. He's always been super-creepy and way too involved in his daughters' (who are grown women) lives, but now the mag says that not only did Joe say he could sell the story of Jessica Simpson's and Tony Romo's engagement (that hasn't happened yet) for big bucks, but that wants to manage Tony's football career! A source said that Jessica's dad asked her boyfriend to "drop his agent so he could take over his NFL career and $67.5 million contract."

Talk about having a set!

When asked about his superclose involvement with Jess, Ashlee and their men, Joe defended himself.

"It's unfair to criticize me for what every manager does for his or her clients," he responded. "And in this business, where people can quickly turn on you, who better than a parent to be working for his children?"

So, tell me. Does Joe get a bad rap? Is he really just looking out for the girls' best interest? Or is he a total sleaze, like I think he is?
