    Well that’s Jessica’s own stupidity. she should’ve known in Lala land nothing is forever. as horrible as that sounds you gotta protect yourself, so I hope Nick gets what he deserves and is entitled to. her dad shouldn’t be whining about how much alimony Nick will get, but he should be telling his daughter how much of a dingbat she was for not getting a prenup in the first place

    He is going to make a killing of her, if she has earned $35 million this year and he has only sold 105,000 copies of his album (and he hasn’t done much else) then he is going to be loaded!!! Stupid woman!!!!! Will he want half the dog?

    Jessica had some early success as a second tier pop tart (with Mandy Moore) behind the first tier (Brit & Christina). By the time the whole Newlyweds thing got started, her career had cooled considerably. A lot of people thought Nick would have a successful solo career. I guess Papa Joe was among them. For once, Nick outfoxed Daddy Simpson.
