An except from Glamour’s interview with cover girl Jessica Simpson, on newsstands now:
“What he’s done for me is irreplaceable,” Simpson says about her newfound confidence. Wearing a printed, off-the-shoulder peasant dress and stacked heels, she settles into a booth at her favorite Dallas bistro. (Romo is off playing golf but shows up at the end of the interview to greet her with a big purple and green stuffed animal. Jessica is clearly delighted.) It’s obvious that the down-home comforts of Dallas are doing her right: Simpson is in control, adorable and ready to move on. Fortified by a glass of chardonnay, she sets the record straight on coping with the tabloids, her acting career and, of course, her new, happy life with Romo. “It feels like forever,” she says about the months they’ve been together. “I love this guy. Can you feel it?” You can’t help but feel it …
[Says Jessica:] “I’m not going to lie and say that I don’t want to see Tony and me in the pictures. It is good airplane reading if you throw it away when you get off; I’m good at that. I am not the type of person who believes everything she reads, but I like to look at photos and see what people are wearing. That’s interesting to me. Do I read the stories? Not really. I try not to read blogs. The comments are extremely harsh … I wouldn’t say that. I think it’s ironic that I fell in love with a man I thought I would never be interested in because he’s an athlete. I was always, An athlete? Heck no. Because it reminded me of being married. This article could come out and Tony and I could be broken up, but he still deserves all the accolades for bringing me back to who I am.”
The whole article’s worth a read. As much as I want to hate Jessica Simpson, whenever I read or see an interview with her, I end up falling in love with her. She’s endured so much hell in the public eye with what is really a ton of grace and honesty.

Angie reportedly let the news slip during an interview with the Today Show in Cannes.
Actually, it seems Jack Black accidentally slipped it (?) and then Angelina confirmed it.
I’m looking for footage of the interview but can’t find it just yet.
Good God, woman. So many children!
But two new children means two new ridiculous baby names to gawk at! Hooray!

Jodie Foster has reportedly broken up with her girlfriend of 14 years, Cydney Bernard.
The couple have two young children together.
Now, granted, the source on this is the National Inquirer, but still …
I wonder what went wrong.

Word on the street is that Tony Romo dumped Jessica Simpson, saying that he spent the weekend partying with hot blondes in Chicago, and telling his friends he was single again.
Jessica’s rep is denying the rumors.
Whatever. I don’t really care about Jessica Simpson’s love life anymore.

You know, I’d hate to endorse anything as a celebrity. Because then, if you’re caught using anything even remotely resembling a competitor of that product, it ends up in Page Six.
SEAN Combs has been Ciroc vodka’s celebrity endorser since last year, but it’s not always his drink. During a party at club Home the other night, the hip-hop mogul had waitresses set up a bottle of the vodka at his table along with mixers. He even had a full glass of Ciroc sitting in front of him. “He sat there like he was drinking it, but had waitresses fetch him Malibu rum and pineapple cocktails all night instead,” our tipster claims. A rep for Combs said, “He loves the vodka and did not order anything else that night.”
You know, if I were his rep, I’d be all like, “Listen, assholes, it’s not like he was sitting there swigging Grey Goose all night. He wanted a goddamn rum and pineapple. Are you gonna freak out if he drinks a Budweiser, too? You know what? Come to think of it, he had a Sprite earlier. And, when he’s at the gym, sometimes he sets down the vodka for a minute and drinks water. Do we have all the skeletons out of the closet now, fucktards?”

“I was a little surprised by her affair with the married man. Barbara is a pretty smart cookie, how did that happen? I didn’t think intelligent women did that.”
Christie Brinkley, to The Insider, regarding Barbara Walters’ admitted affair with married senator Edward Brooke.
Christie, you’ll recall, has been on the wrong side of marital infidelity in the recent past.
What do you guys think?
Does intelligence have anything to do with a woman’s willingness to sleep with a married man? Or to cheat in a committed relationship?
Additionally: Is Christie equating a lack of intelligence with low morals? Is she implying that this truism holds only for women?
