Jessica Simpson may be more successful than previously thought

Jessica Simpson is interviewed in the September issue of Glamour, and it pretty much covers what we expect of this fluff-ball, housewife journalism: hope will see you through the day, all my struggles make me a better person, this is all part of my journey, my Dad isn’t a creepy weirdo obsessed with micromanaging my career or leering at my epic tits etc., etc. But buried in the Q&A is this little, unforeseen nugget:

GLAMOUR: Let’s talk about your fashion line, the Jessica Simpson Collection. Your company grossed something like $300 million last year! Do you ever sit back and think, I’m a mogul?
JS: It’s an incredible experience, creatively. I love to work with my mom; we’re very hands-on. I get my inspiration from books, pictures, art. I might find a vintage scarf and say, “I think this should be our color palette.” And I love that I can write off all my shopping! [Laughs.]

I honestly have trouble believing this. Jessica Simpson as some business mogul? Really? I wouldn’t trust this hick with glitter glue and elbow macaroni at playtime. I mean, c’mon: $300 million? Are you kidding me? Is this a made up number, something fantastical Glamour just said to make her feel better as she sat there spacing out, giggling occasionally, and eating her own hair? They could have said that she was worth a lifetime supply of panda bear hugs or a billion Klingon darseks and it would make about as much sense to me.

I am very doubtful of that number, too.

Believe it! I’ve bought more than a few pair of her shoes. Cute and affordable. I know a lot of women who have more than a few pair of shoes from her line in their closets. At $40 a pair, it’ll add up quick! She’s more successful than one might think.

This woman is a nice person and level headed. The press and the ignorant are the ones making her out to be an airhead. Clearly mean-spirited and spiteful, some of these bloggers cannot seem to take in the fact that somebody who is beautiful and selfless can be that successful and wealthy (through her own effort and hard work). If Jessica was my daughter, I will do everything to protect her too, like what her Dad and Mom have been doing.

I love her shoes! I have probably ten pairs, all adorable and fashion forward. I have a bag or two of hers too. I just got another pair last week! I saw Paris Hilton’s shoes as well….bunch of ol’ clip cloppy unrefined pumps fit for a Clydesdale horse. Yup, seemed about right to me too.
