Yup, Papa Joe’s Trying to Cash in on Ashlee’s Pregnancy


She’s not even showing yet — and there’s been no confirmation from anyone in her camp — but Papa Joe Simpson is reportedly already trying to cash in on Ashlee’s rumored pregnancy.

Says a source: “Joe is contacting all the weeklies and asking them to pony up $1 million to put Ashlee on the cover … The deal would include photos of Ashlee – taken by Joe, of course, so he can make more money – an interview and photos of the baby when she has it.”

Another in the magazine world says that Ashlee could fetch “$60,000 maybe – but definitely not a million. The timing is a little suspicious. Her album is dropping next week, and there was little to no interest until now. Ashlee’s lucky she got pregnant, frankly.”

Lucky? Or smart?

“Unplanned” pregnancies are like totally the coolest thing ever right now! Used to be you just had to get a little dog and a Louis Vuitton carrier. Now you have to birth a freakin’ human.

  • i’m still flabbergasted that she got pregnant… like… really didn’t think petey was capable

  • well helloooooooo LOLLY! she’s “GROWN into a beautiful woman?”
    Is that what they’re calling plastic surgery these days .. ” GROWING”

  • Oh PS .. HAHAHAHAH on the Lou Perlman that cracked me up.
    PPS .. One of the happiest and most enjoyable Saturday nights I’ve ever had was the one where I got home early enough to catch Ashlee’s HO DOWN on SNL! HA! I was drunk and could NOT stop replaying it and howling!

  • Mother of God. The man, I do believe, is wearing a black velvet jacket. Which is too small to fit over his beer gut. With white stitching.

    However, he needs a black velvet cowboy hat to complete the outfit and a retarded bullet-reflecting rodeo-type belt buckle. I wish I could see if he was wearing cowboy boots (undoubtedly with his jeans tucked in).

    I wonder if this is some sort of “advertisement” for the other “country-singin'” one?
