Star has been on fire this week. They really had enough good stories to last them about a month but they jammed them all into one issue. Because they had so many, this one kind of got pushed back a little, but when I read it, I decided it was the funniest story of the week. No, the fact that Jessica Simpson is staging an intervention for Ashlee is not funny, but even though I fully believe that Ashlee is drinking 10 bottles of wine by herself each week, I doubt Jessica really would stage an intervention. Although, it probably is not the wine she needs to be worried about. The funny part of the story is that to try and get Ashlee back on her feet, Jessica has told her boyfriend Eric Johnson to start helping Ashlee write songs for a new record. Seriously? That is the job you found for the guy? If you want to disguise this monthly allowance thing, you can do it a lot better than this. I am guessing he failed miserably at whatever tasks Jessica and Joe have given him previously so is now a songwriter?!?
Oh, and Jessica is helping too, but wants no credit. That is because when the album bombs Jessica wants to say she had nothing to do with it. I don't think Jessica ever wrote one song for any of her other records so why would she start now?
