Hot dang it! Is every celeb and their mothers admitting to plastic surgery today?! First Heidi Montag came clean with her nose job and boob job. Now, Ashlee Simpon‘s father, Joe confirms that his daughter had a nose job in May 2006:
On having no control over Ashlee’s decision to undergo rhinoplasty: “Girls have their own ideas. Anyway, there was a real problem with her breathing and that was cured.”
On good parenting being the reason his daughters Jessica and Ashlee haven’t gone the way of Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears: “We have a real family. You can’t just put these kids out in the world and they’re on their own. I can remember a time when Jessica was singing at Madison Square Garden and her outfit ripped before she went on. We were there for her.”
On Ashlee’s Saturday Night Live debacle: “She’d lost her voice, and Jordan Schur [then the head of her record label] insisted she lip-synch. She’d never done it before. She didn’t want to do it. Anyway, she’ll never do it again. We just did a huge tour, and there was no lip-synching.”
On denying being a controlling father (he’s a former Baptist minister): “I don’t tell my girls who to date or marry or what to do.”
On Jessica’s break-up with Nick Lachey: “I have nothing against Nick. But they got married very young. I told Jessica, ‘You’re going to hit an age when it’s all going to be clear to you — life that is — and you’ll know what you want to do. I do blame 50 percent of their break-up on the media.”
If the media was 50% to blame, does Joe take the other 50%? He did, after all, produce the reality TV show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
