Oh Hell Yes: The Lane Garrison Story Has a Jessica Simpson Twist

See, I told you it was weird. Lane Garrison, the 26-year-old Prison Break actor whose Saturday-night outing with 3 teenagers proved deadly for one of them, was sent to live with Joe Simpson as a troubled teen in Texas. Yes, that Joe Simpson. Papa Joe. Jess and Ashlee’s dad. Back when he was a minister and not a manager and freelance photographer, trying to make sure the lights hit his daughters’ breasts just right.

Garrison has said he and Jessica “basically grew up together.”

Jessica’s rep weighs in: “She loves him and wishes him well during this difficult time.”

Weird. Jessica’s whole Dolly Parton mishap occured Sunday night. This accident occured on Saturday night. I wonder if the news had her shaken up. Maybe (please God) there is soooo much more beneath the surface here…
