She was famously dumped before her birthday, and now Jessica Simpson has lost her beloved dog Daisy to a coyote. Could this be the last straw that crushes the lonely singer’s spirit?
“Daisy was her baby,” a pal confided to People magazine of the presumably deceased maltipoo. “It’s going to put her into a tailspin.”
Jessica’s relationship with her dog was less that of owner and pet than mother and pampered child, sources said. “Daisy ran the household,” said the friend. “If Daisy didn’t like you, you were gone. Sometimes if her regular hair and makeup people weren’t available and Jessica had a sit-in, if Daisy didn’t like them, they wouldn’t be back.”
“Jessica is very needy. She is very clingy,” the friend noted. “She is so sweet, but sometimes because of that she’s hard to be around. It’s not always easy. She hates to be alone. That’s what happened with [ex-boyfriend and Dallas Cowboys quarterback] Tony [Romo].”
Through ups and downs with the likes of Tony, not to mention John Mayer, recalls the source, “Daisy never betrayed her. Daisy was always there for her. This is serious. Jessica’s heart is broken.”
Normally, we’d say something snarky here, but we can’t bring ourselves to kick poor Jess when she’s down.
Khloe: Bride Time
Talk about a whirlwind romance! Khloe Kardashian got engaged to beau Lamar Odon after just a month of dating. Now comes word that the reality star and the L.A. Lakers star will hold their nuptials this Sunday!
People reports the wedding will be held at the L.A.-area home of Irving Azoff, a music producer and friend of the family.
“The wedding planner, photographer, groomsmen and bridesmaids have all been chosen,” a close friend of the bride-to-be told Life & Style magazine.
But mom Kris Jenner seems unfazed by the rush to the altar. “That’s how Bruce [Jenner] and I met,” she told radio host Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday.
Kris also denied speculation that Khloe was pregnant. Not that that’s what you were thinking.
For about five seconds, we actually thought Amy Winehouse might be on her way back to the straight and narrow: She announced the formation of a new record label to showcase her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield’s musical debut, and she took the stage spontaneously at a London club to belt out three songs — without slurring, forgetting lyrics, or bursting into tears.
But our optimism didn’t last long. Upon leaving that gig, the “Rehab” singer found herself in a scuffle with the crowd outside and had to be forced into her car by security.
And the chanteuse’s protectiveness toward her goddaughter took an ugly and embarrassing turn when she visited the 13-year-old girl’s London school Monday … to tear into a bully who had tormented Dionne. A photographer said that “the altercation outside of the North London secondary school quickly turned sour when Amy began hurling abuse at the young accused bully and spitting at her.”
Well, at least that’s one way to get her protégée some publicity. Perhaps there’s a method to Amy’s madness after all … Nah, who are we kidding?
