I was disappointed to read Jessica Simpson’s father Joe’s message talking about returning home where he seems to address the horrible terrorist attacks Tuesday as an afterthought to promoting his daughter.
In his message, Joe Simpson wrote:
Hey you guys!!! we are home…… i can’t tell you how good it is to be home for a moment. i have loved sleeping in my bed… i forgot how much i loved home.
Jessica is so happy to be sleeping at home. wow, she is just enjoying being a normal person. of course, this won’t last. we will be working again this weekend.
Thank you so much for praying for my mom. She is really having a tough time. She has never been sick. she has always been the one to take care of everyone else. This is really hard for me to watch. I don’t understand why things happen. We can only trust that God has a plan.
Of course, we can hardly believe what has happened in New York and Washington. I know that each of us will be changed forever. We can only pray!
Hopefully, Jessica will be making a video entry soon. Things have been a little crazy, but she still loves you guys…. she will be introducing her new video on the 20th… make sure you watch and vote it to the top…..
We are looking forward to the future. remember…. a little bit goes a long way!
Having a ‘of course’ blurb taking precedent over how happy Jessica is to be home and talking of voting a new video Jessica made to the top of TRL is difficult to stomach. Joe could learn well to separate promotion from condolences… the two don’t mix…. and yeah, that would include talking about his sick mother in the same message as well (and certainly I don’t fault him for updating readers on that, let me be clear). It would be best if Joe chose to wait at least until next week to try and shove commercialism down readers’ throats. Shame on you, Joe Simpson.
