No doubt it has been a difficult few months for Jessica Simpson. She has been relentlessly bullied over her baby weight, her fiancé, Eric Johnson is rumored to have quite the wandering eye and now her parents are divorcing. According to a People magazine source, she’s getting through and life continues, “She’s going on with everything. She’s sad, but she’s okay.” Jess is keeping busy with her show, Fashion Star, she’s a spokesperson for Weight Watchers and then she has her five-month old daughter to chase after. It’s great that she’s not letting the family turmoil unravel her day to day life, but how do you think she REALLY is?
According to a rep for the Simpson family, her parents’ split isn’t ugly and they tried to bolster that notion by issuing this statement,
“It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved,” the rep said. “Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time.”
I have to think there is a dump truck load of anger swirling through the family right now because of Joe’s deceitfulness! There is nothing amicable about finding out that your father lied for decades and then realizing that he hid his true self behind his religious preachings. Joe Simpsons’ gay tendencies aren’t embarrassing and if he had been honest they probably would have helped his daughters’ careers. Hollywood isn’t exactly intolerant. But it has to be horrifying to realize you watched your daddy preach about damnation to a congregation while he himself was guilty of the things that he encouraged intolerance of. Look, your sexuality and its expression is your choice – but lying and cheating doesn’t get a pass – gay or straight – even in Hollywood – just ask the Trampire.
Do you think Jess had a clue of who her father really was? I mean, could he really have hidden it so well from his family? Don’t you think there were moments over the years when things just didn’t quite add up? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
