After trying her hand at reality television and designing accessories, Jessica Simpson is finally ready to get back in the music game. She tweeted recently, “What kind of music would y’all want from me on my next album? Thinking about going back to the studio.” Because that’s normally a good way to find direction—ask your fans for it rather than follow your own instincts. But what the heck. If Jess wants ideas for her album, let’s give them to her after the jump.

My love for Ryan Gosling may occasionally take me to inane places — please see yesterday’s “sockless” slideshow — but at least I’ve never been so obsessed that I’ve written a book about our fictional love affair. The same cannot be said for Marce William Burchell, an obsessed Jessica Simpson fan penned the book above about their (fake) relationship, which he is currently selling on Amazon for $30. That’s basically a $1 for every word in just the title: The True Story of Jessica Ann Simpson’s 22 month long attempt to seduce a married man- her very Active Super Secret Sex life: True Story Jessica Simpson Seduction of A Married Man (Volume 1). Apparently, however, not a lot could have happened in that 22 months, as the book itself is only 30 pages. The Frisky staff is currently debating whether or not to purchase this pricey piece of fan-fiction; to put money in the pocket of a crazy person or not? I think I may try and score a freebie first.

The most expensive birthday gift I ever received from a significant other was a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps that pinched my feet. I never wear them, as I have yet to get the necessary foot-binding procedure. Jessica Simpson won’t have that problem with her pricey b-day gift from fiance Eric Johnson — a highly-coveted Hermes Birkin bag estimated to cost $15,000. I just hope she’s not wearing lipstick during that makeout sesh. Makeup stains greatly depreciate the value of luxury handbags. [Twitter] Keep reading »
Jessica Simpson has decided to give reality TV another chance. She’s signed on to be the celebrity mentor on NBC’s new series, “Fashion Star,” a “Project Runway”-esque design show hosted by Elle MacPherson. This will be Jess’ third attempt at a reality series — “Newlyweds” ended in divorce and “The Price of Beauty” ended in cancellation — so we hope she’s learned a thing or two. [US Weekly]
After the jump, some suggestions for Jess to ensure that “Fashion Star” is a hit. Keep reading »
Going to your 10-year college reunion is fun. It’s even better if you happen to look hot and have gone on to a fun and fulfilling career.

JessSimp attended with her fiance, Eric Johnson, who played football at the school. Meanwhile, JessAlba attended with her hubby, Cash Warren.

“We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time … We might elope if it gets to that point … I will be part of designing my own wedding gown.”
—Jessica Simpson talks to Women’s Wear Daily about her wedding plans with former football player Eric Johnson. I’m secretly hoping these two get hitched in a Vegas wedding chapel and that Jessica wears one of her prom dresses for the occasion. [People] Keep reading »
Looks like Jessica Simpson and Christina Aguilera both have new jobs. On the heels of her arrest for public intoxication, while her new BF Matthew Rutler was charged with a DUI, NBC announced that Xtina will be a musician coach on their “American Idol” knockoff, “The Voice,” a series that will debut on April 26. “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms,” Christina said.

“I just let it flow. My fiance taught me that. He’ll get up in the morning and just write, so nothing blocks his emotional life. It doesn’t even have to be in sentence form; he just gets everything out, and that way he can function without getting in the way of himself, without being aggressive or judgmental. We do that together. Sometimes he takes that hour just reading, we’ll get out of bed and just read aloud to each other. He has so many books. Like, just books and books and books and books.”
– Jessica Simpson, who graces the cover of New York‘s Spring Fashion issue, seems quite smitten with her beau, Eric Johnson, and has embraced his somewhat spiritual approach to life. Reading aloud, huh? That’s kind of cute. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Jessica Simpson never went to the prom. But she wants you, or at least your younger cousin, to look gorgeous at yours. So in addition to her line of shoes, bags, jeans, etc—apparently, her apparel fiefdom is valued at almost $1 billion a year—Jessica is now creating prom dresses for David’s Bridal. As the press release reads, “Inspired by the fabulous designer gowns I’ve worn to red carpet events, my affordable collection is designed to fit and flatter a variety of body types and help girls achieve their own red carpet style for prom.” The dresses cost between $139 and $229, and honestly, look pretty nice. I am thoroughly obsessed with the space age tie dye of the one on the left and am considering purchasing it. Even though I’d be wearing it to my 15-year reunion rather than to an actual prom.
