Lloyd Grove’s Daily Dish from the New York Daily News reveals the following:
OK! magazine — which reportedly paid Simpson up to $1 million to pose for half a dozen covers, not to mention a nice commission for her PR rep — apparently isn’t moving the merchandise. I hear that sales of the Jessica cover of OK!’s July 24 issue — about 540,000 — were 10% lower than the magazine’s Jennifer Aniston-Vince Vaughn cover the week before, and 15% lower than the Britney Spears cover three weeks earlier. “Jessica was their lowest sale in seven weeks,” a glossy-magazine insider told Lowdown yesterday. “She’s so over. She’s a bargain-basement star who can only sell $1.99 magazines at best these days.”
Well, maybe if there were more ice-cream action going on in her photo shoots, moving magazines wouldn’t be a problem.
