Joe Simpson Confirms Ashlee’s Nose Job

After more than a year of coy answers from Ashlee Simpson regarding her May 2006 nose job, her father Joe has finally confirmed that his daughter went under the knife.

In an interview with Fox News, Joe says he had no control over Ashlee’s decision to undergo rhinoplasty.

“Girls have their own ideas,” he shrugged. “Anyway, there was a real problem with her breathing and that was cured.”

Joe, who also serves as manager to Ashlee, 22, and her sister Jessica, 27, credits good parenting as the reason his daughters haven’t gone the way of Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears.

“We have a real family,” he said. “You can’t just put these kids out in the world and they’re on their own. I can remember a time when Jessica was singing at Madison Square Garden and her outfit ripped before she went on. We were there for her.”

And then there was Ashlee’s Saturday Night Live debacle.

“She’d lost her voice, and Jordan Schur [then the head of her record label] insisted she lip-synch,” he said. “She’d never done it before. She didn’t want to do it. Anyway, she’ll never do it again. We just did a huge tour, and there was no lip-synching.”

The former Baptist minister also denies claims that he’s a controlling father. “I don’t tell my girls who to date or marry or what to do.”

He also has no hard feelings against former son-in-law Nick Lachey.

“I have nothing against Nick,” he told me. “But they got married very young. I told Jessica, ‘You’re going to hit an age when it’s all going to be clear to you — life that is — and you’ll know what you want to do.’”

Joe added: “I do blame 50 percent of their break-up on the media.”

Ashlee on Pregnancy: “Time Will Tell”

Ashlee Simpson is still remaining mum on impending motherhood.

The newly betrothed singer dodged pregnancy talk yet again on the Today show Friday morning when Matt Lauer prodded about “expanding the family.”

“Well, you know, that’s been going around for about a year now, so only time will tell with that,” Ashlee answered.

Without missing a beat, and changing the topic entirely, the 23-year-old quipped, “But I am giving birth to my record [Bittersweet World]. That’s my new baby.”

While she continued to be coy about her pregnancy, which OK! confirmed on Monday, Ashlee couldn’t stop gushing about her fiancĂ©, Pete Wentz, and the “great job” he did at picking out her new rock.

“I’m very lucky,” she said.

Asked if they have settled on a wedding date, Ash said they don’t have one in mind just yet.

“Right now, we’re just enjoying the engagement.”

Jessica Simpson Celebrates 28th Birthday!

Jessica Simpson turns 28 today.

Look back at the singer’s sexy — and scary! — style over the years.

So what’s beau Tony Romo getting his birthday girl?

He’s not sure!

“I have to buy her something!” he told Wednesday at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, a resort casino. “I’ll pick something up tonight.”

Asked if he’d pick her up some golf clubs, he laughed: “I don’t know if she’d like that!”

“I think I’ll take her out to dinner,” he added, “a nice restaurant.”

See what a body language expert had to say about Jessica and Tony.

Romo — who is in Lake Tahoe for a golf tournament — said he and Simpson are renting a house.

“We’ll be here all week,” he said. “We’ll probably rent a boat and go out on the lake on Saturday.”

Simpson’s birthday celebrations kicked off Monday when she dined with Romo, her pregnant sister Ashlee and husband Pete Wentz at Sagebrush Cantina in Calabasas, California.

“We had a get together,” Romo said.

Following dinner, Simpson and Romo hit West Hollywood’s Key Club to see Steel Panther (formerly known as Metal Skool).

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback even tried his hand at singing the Guns n’ Roses hit “Sweet Child O’ Mine” to Simpson and the crowd.

See Jessica Simpson’s New Las Vegas Condo

Jessica Simpson is headed to Sin City.

The singer, 27, just snapped up a luxury, 1,200-square feet one-bedroom suite inside the new Palms Place residential resort in Las Vegas. Pics of the one-bedroom suites are to the left.

The deal has been in the works for awhile.

“She first showed interest when she was still with Nick,” a source close to Simpson tells “It was originally supposed to be for both of them, but then she decided to just get a smaller unit for herself.”

Another source close to the singer tells Us: “The location of the condo is spectacular. It’s right at the top of the tower, and it’s got great views of the strip. It’s really cool!”

The Palms Place (located next to the Palms Palace Hotel and Casino) offers a two-story Drift Spa and Simon at Palms Place, a restaurant and lounge by celeb chef Kerry Simon.

“We are thrilled that Jessica is among the first to purchase at Palms Place,” said Palms Place owner George Maloof in a statement. “We’ve created a resort atmosphere unlike anything on or off the Las Vegas Strip.”

Jessica Simpson Changed Number So Exes Can’t Contact Her

Jessica Simpson was put in the hot seat on Thursday’s The View, answering a slew of “true” or “false” questions from Barbara Walters.

Moving in with Tony Romo?

“No comment,” Simpson said. “I gotta get used to saying that!”


“They must have me confused with my sister!” she said. “I’m definitely not pregnant.”

Walters also asked if she has ever had to change her cell phone number and email address so ex boyfriends can’t contact her.

“True,” said Simpson, who has romanced John Mayer, Adam Levine and Jude Law, since ending her marriage to Nick Lachey.

Look back at Jessica Simpson’s famous Us Weekly covers.

This isn’t the first time she had dropped an interesting bit about an ex. (In September’s Elle, she vaguely mentioned, “I have definitely experienced abuse in a way that I would tell people to take their heart and run.”)

She says she is in a better place now, admitting that she isn’t afraid to speak publicly about her romance with Romo.

“I believe when you are in love, you might as well stand up on the mountaintop and say it,” she said on The View.

See who’s more in love: Jessica or Ashlee Simpson.

On the Late Show With David Letterman Thursday, she poked fun at critics who accused her of jinxing Romo’s career.

“I really think it’s because I was wearing a pink No. 9 jersey and not a blue one,” she said.

“If you had been in blue that wouldn’t be a problem?” asked Letterman.

“Well, so far I’ve been wearing blue, and they’re doing great,” she replied. “I’ll never wear a pink one again!”
