Death knell sounding on Jess Simpson's career

Tbdsimpson070307 While we’re waiting for details about what recently re-rehabbed Lindsay Lohan really did for her birthday today, we gape at the career spiral Jessica Simpson is in.

The New York Daily News says the fading starlet’s new film Blonde Ambition is still hitting snags. The release date has been pushed back (again) to late August because papa Joe didn’t like the competition it was lined up against, and Jess herself is causing problems.

“Jessica was not very focused on-set and flubbed her lines often,” a source says. “She always had her dog around, was on the phone with [then-] boyfriend John Mayer or was sitting in a warmed-up SUV.” No doubt to be ready when Hollywood came to run her out of town. Maybe she’s been upset at the prospect of being faced with the racy pics of ex Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo that are alleged to exist.
