The last time we saw her on reality TV was when she was still married to Nick Lachey on The Newlyweds. Who could forget her “I don’t eat buffalo” and “Is this chicken or tuna” quips?
Celebrities have really been stepping up to help Haiti earthquake victims. We’ve heard of telephone marathons, fundraisers, and even musical collaborations. Now it’s Jessica Simpson’s turn.
The 29-year-old popstar is trying to get people to donate 50,000 pairs of shoes in 50 days for the survivors of the Haiti earthquake. The drive is in collaboration with her hairstylist Ken Paves, her best friend and personal assistant Cacee Cobb, and Nashville foundation Soles4Souls.
Jessica recently tweeted:
[sic] Please help RT @caceecobb: Check out what me and @JessicaSimpson and @KenPaves are doing for Haiti and @Soles4Souls http://bit.ly/JjHQ
She also posted a link to her fund drive’s official website, 50000shoes.com where supporters can check out how the can help out. “As little as $5 (that’s the price of a venti frap, by the way) provides two pairs of shoes,” the website said.
Jessica Simpson’s BFF stylist Ken Paves got all bloodied when part of a paparazzi’s camera collided with his face during a mad scramble to take pictures of Simpson.
Paves managed to bring Jessica to their car and from there he was rushed to the hospital.
Gay chivalry is alive and well.
