Jessica Simpson doesn't want to work with dad Joe on new show
Here's further proof that Jessica Simpson is all grown up now and worthy of being in charge of a billion-dollar empire: RadarOnline says she doesn't want to work with her dad Joe, who is executive producer of her new, in-development NBC sitcom. It seems she's mad he left her mother, just because he's gay. The nerve! Holding personal grudges against people in a work environment? That sounds suspiciously diva-ish to us!
"Don't be fooled that because Joe is executive producer for Jessica’s new show she has now forgiven him for cheating on Tina," a source says of the recently outed patriarch. "In fact, they still don't talk and Jessica doesn't want anything to do with her dad. He's her manager, that's all. He won't be on set when she is. Jessica will film scenes and Joe will have to review it later on a recording and discuss the show with other producers. Joe will have his say on how the show should work, but Jessica will make the final call. The only reason his name is on the credits for the show is simply because he's still her manager."
It seems she's still under contract after Fashion Star to have Papa Joe around as her manager, so this is the way it'll have to be. But then, we'd figure having Joe around Jess all the time would have been annoying anyway, so this is probably all for the best.
