Will Jessica Simpson replace Simon Cowell on American Idol?

It's possible, according to Life & Style!

So is Mel Gibson winning Humanitarian of the Year honors, but hey. Anything's possible! Why not run with it for some quick hits if you're a third-rate magazine?

According to the celebrity gossip rag, Jessica is in negotiations to become the newest judge on American Idol! Sources say that she has already met with the producers and everyone really "likes" her. Now, it's just a matter of fitting her in.

BAG IT: Whatever "source" planted this story must be closely tied to Jessica, whose career loses relevancy by the month. [Photo:]

Had this news surfaced a year ago, with Jessica's name thrown around as a possible replacement Paula Abdul, that would at least make some sense.

They have similar a "temperament," you could say.

Jessica replacing Simon Cowell, though? We don't see it happening, although maybe we're wrong. Compare her to some of the other rumored replacements whose names have surfaced in recent weeks and vote in our survey below ...

Jessica Simpson may seem like a great replacement for departed American Idol judge Paula Abdul in that both are fun, harmless and say really inane things.

Not to mention, as a no-talent hack herself, Jessica might offer the panel unique insight in the early auditions as wannabes are nixed from a crowded field.

But alas, for all six of you who might have gotten your hopes up, but the casting coup, which was probably started by Jessica's dad/pimp Joe, is not to be.

J-Simps' rep Cindi Berger shot down reports that the alleged singer turned sad sack divorcee will be filling the fourth seat at the American Idol judges' table.

The reports are "not true at all," Berger said.

Crazy Paula

Rumors began a-swirlin' this morning when the New York Post said Joe Simpson was pushing for Jessica to replace Paula alongside Simon, Randy and Kara.

But in case you didn't believe the official denial from Jess' rep, Joe took to (what else) his official Twitter this morning to debunk the Post story for good.

"So, I am in thailand... But, of course, the post says I am in town trying to get ;ess to be the replacement for paula abdul... Do the lies ever stop????"

Not sure who ;ess is, but no, the lies definitely do not stop.

As for Abdul, she's not joining Dancing With the Stars, Ugly Betty or even So You Think You Can Dance, despite rumors tying her to all of the above.

Think she might still consider coming back to Idol for the right price?

Kids around the country are heading back to school. But they aren't the only ones being graded as summer turns to fall.

Multiple artists have released new albums over the last couple weeks. The critical folks at Entertainment Weekly have taken the time to grade each CD - and those from The Gossip figured it was our duty to present such estimations to readers everywhere:

  • Beyonce Nipple Slip?
  • Jessica Simpson Bustin' Out
  • The New Panel
  • Beyonce, B'day: B+. The magazine said you have "search far and wide to find a vocalist who sings with more sheer force ... [while obsessing] over the intersection of love and lucre ..."
  • Jessica Simpson, A Public Affair: C. EW accuses Jessica of basically ripping of the 80s, with tracks that sound eerily like Madonna and samples from bands such as The Cars. She does get points, however, for no Nick Lachey-like "confessionalism."
  • American Idol, Season 5 Encores: C. Describing a CD as "expertly crafted mediocrity" isn't exactly a recommendations. At least praise is given to Chris Daughtry for singing multiple parts on "Wanted Dead or Alive."

The publication stayed away from the most important grade of all, however: the booty battle between Beyonce and Jessica. What do you think?

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
