Jessica Simpson: 'American Idol' Bound?

Jessica Simpson: 'American Idol' Bound?

Jessica Simpson is reportedly in negotiations to join the cast of American Idol!

The 30-year-old entertainer has met with producer/creator Simon Fuller several times, a source tells Life & Style. “They like her — she’s a good fit — and she likes it. Now it’s just a question of how to fit her in.”

Idol is reportedly shaking things up for its tenth season after Simon Cowell‘s departure.

“[Jessica]’s not his replacement — they’re two entirely different personalities,” the source added. “This is part of a massive overhaul of the show. There may be more judges, more opinions.”

FYI: Justin Timberlake and Elton John were rumored to be in talks in the show, too, but both of their reps have denied involvement.

    What is it with Jessica S, she is not really chubby but somehow always looks really chubby? She always l manages to look chubby yet she’s not. Hillary Duff has the same problem. Maybe it’s the bad choice of clothes or maybe because they are short. I don’t get it. Both are pretty girls, but always come off as chubby for some reason.

    In The Know Says:

    DOUBT IT…………………Everyone inside the music industry views her as a laughingstock. This had to be put out by Joe Simpson.

    Fuller knows this and wouldn’t touch her with a ten foot pole.

    @carol: It’s their boobs, cover their chest and their frame looks totally different. Jessica’s are real, Hilary got a boob job last(?) year.

    Really, who cares anymore? Just let the show die in peace instead of forcing life into it (not that Jessica Simpson would have done that lol)

    She has tried every career under the sun – (bad) pop singer, (bad) country singer, (bad) reality tv show star, ….now judge for American Idol? She’s really desperate to stay famous!

    I think she will be a judge for the new show Simon is producing and judging. And to be honest, I think she will be a good judge for that new show. For AI, I don’t think she is a good replacement for Simon.
