Apparently the abomination that was The Dukes of Hazzard was Brandt Joel’s fault.

We’re not sure what starring movie roles Jessica Simpson thought she could get – but any offer she does receive in the future won’t be thanks to Joel. He was fired yesterday as the singer’s agent.

Rick Nicita of CAA has taken over. The one thing Nicita has to keep in mind? Play nicely with crazy, controlling father, Joe!

“Brandt got into a huge fight with Joe Simpson,” says a source. “Joe is constantly trying to butt in and he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing. Jessica took her father’s side and fired him.”

Oh, know what else, Rick? Don’t mention plastic surgery to Ashlee Simpson. She doesn’t like that.
