Jessica may be ready to fire her dad, Joe Simpson — thank God. He’s a lousy manager, and stupid decisions have derailed what should’ve been a really strong career. “After The Dukes of Hazzard movie, Joe was telling everyone that Jess was the next Julia Roberts,” said one insider. “The public bought it for a while, but the studios never believed it. Now there isnâ€™t much work for Jessica.â€
In fact, most of the acting work that Jessica gets is for small self-funded films with pretty abysmal salaries. Time to dust off that Rolodex, girl, and look for a manager who actually knows what he’s doing.
