Ashlee Simpson Is The New Favorite Daughter

Jessica Simpson’s decision to lay low and make kissy-face with John Mayer on New Year’s Eve has her dad ticked–not so much cause of the lovey-dovey shit, as much as because Mayer wasn’t a paying customer.TMZ reports:

A source tells TMZ the family tiff started when Vegas’ PURE nightclub contacted Joe to have Jess host a New Year’s Eve party for what we are told was a large sum of money. Jessica wasn’t interested in working on the holiday, says our source, and told Pops she wanted to spend a mellow New Year’s sans glitz and glamour. With her recent Kennedy Center Honors debacle, film flop and tanking music career, the girl’s had a rough year! An exhausted Britney Spears would go on to host PURE’s festivities, until she fainted.

When Papa Joe found out baby Jessica’s idea of a quiet night at home meant canoodling with Mayer at various NYC hotspots, the minister turned Svengali was livid — not because she was with her new boy, but because she partied — for free!

I can just imagine Joe’s speech to Jess, “Girl, you think that blonde weave, Botox, and collagen is gonna pay for itself? Not to mention the price of overhauling your sister’s face…”
