Poor Jessica Simpson talks about her life, her sinking career, fluctuating weight, manager dad, football star boyfriend Tony Romo, and other (yawn) fascinating things in a wordy cover story profile in this month's Vanity Fair.
She talked to the writer over two glasses of wine, never a good idea for a celebrity who has been accused of having a partying problem.
"In short, it's been a bad time for Jessica Simpson: flop, flop, country flop, fat picture," VF writes.
Simpson's career desperately needs a jump start, a new direction, a boost, a tow, something. And hawking a clothing/accessory line and a new fragrance called "Fancy" may not be enough to rescue the actress's showbiz future.
Clearly, there are other celebs — Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Lisa Rinna, Heidi Montag, Brittany Murphy, Avril Lavigne, Denise Richards, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, even Jennifer Aniston — whose careers are stalled, sputtering, switching gears or just plain out of gas.
