Raise your hand if you are surprised that Jessica Simpson's new movie, Blonde Ambition, is said to be painstakingly bad. That's what I thought. Sources say her dad/manager, Joe Simpson, has pushed back the release date twice because the movie is no good. "First, the release date was set for Aug. 3, and then it was delayed until the last week of August," says an insider. "Papa Joe then intervened and said he wasn't comfortable with the level of competition from other films that month."
The buzz is that Jessica's recent on-again-off-again relationship with John Mayer may have contributed to the mess that is the film. "Jessica was not very focused on-set and flubbed her lines often," said an source. "She always had her dog around, was on the phone with boyfriend John Mayer or was sitting in a warmed-up SUV."
Come on, people. Like it's John's fault if Jessica can't get a grip on the script. If Jessica was still married to Nick Lachey, sitting at home reading her script and eating her tuna/Chicken of the Sea, the movie would be just as awful. Have you seen Employee of the Month?
