    Tony Romo Wants Jessica Simpson’s Dad To Stay On The Sidelines



    And the saga continues…it would seem that Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson’s on-again/off-again/on-again romance is back on, but only if Papa Joe stays completely off the playing field:
    ”He did agree to go to [sister Ashlee’s] wedding — keeping his promise to Jessica,” Romo’s Eastern Illinois alum chum told me. ”But he made it super-clear that if they were to give it another go, her dad had to seriously back off.”

    Joe Simpson has long been seen as an overbearing presence, as he managed both his daughters’ careers. While clearly successful, Simpson has earned a reputation as being a guy extremely difficult with whom to work.

    My source says Romo has told Jessica their renewed relationship is ”a trial thing,” dependent on Daddy Joe ”leaving them alone” and stifling his tendency to tell Romo how to run his life, career and endorsement deals.
    It’s no secret that many people think Joe Simpson is a seriously creepy guy. But come on…Tony Romo didn’t get to where he is in the NFL by being stupid in his business dealings. I’m sure he has ‘people’ on his payroll who help him with his career decisions and endorsement deals…he doesn’t need unsolicited advice from a guy who looks and acts like a smarmy used car salesman.

    I can’t say as I blame Tony…there’s nothing worse than a meddling busybody trying to worm their way into your life by continually telling you the “best” way to do things and meddling in your personal life. It’s like that loud uncle at the Thanksgiving table who just doesn’t know when to shut up about your line of work, and who goes on and on until you want to shove his face in the sweet potatoes.

    Ashlee, Jessica, a word of advice…ditch Papa Joe as your manager. Now. Before he sends your careers (and your personal relationships) totally down the toilet. Jessica, if you were happy with Tony outside of your father’s interference, then you should think about that, because keeping daddy as a manager will be small comfort when you grow old alone.

    Daddy Joe blocked from Romo huddle

    QB recalls waivers on Simpson -- at least for now


    May 28, 2008





    BY BILL ZWECKER Sun-Times Columnist
    Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are back ''on,'' but a college pal of the Dallas Cowboys quarterback tells me it's Romo who's calling all the plays.
    ''He did agree to go to [sister Ashlee's] wedding -- keeping his promise to Jessica,'' Romo's Eastern Illinois alum chum told me. ''But he made it super-clear that if they were to give it another go, her dad had to seriously back off.''

    Joe Simpson has long been seen as an overbearing presence, as he managed both his daughters' careers. While clearly successful, Simpson has earned a reputation as being a guy extremely difficult with whom to work.
    My source says Romo has told Jessica their renewed relationship is ''a trial thing,'' dependent on Daddy Joe ''leaving them alone'' and stifling his tendency to tell Romo how to run his life, career and endorsement deals.
    • Romo and Jessica Simpson have been seen together looking happy in recent days, after the solo vacation Jessica took in Mexico following Ashlee's marriage to Fall Out Boy rocker (and ex-North Shore resident) Pete Wentz.
    STAR POWER: Mr. Big won't be here for the Friday opening of the ''Sex and the City'' movie, but Chris Noth could be in our midst later this summer. He's joined the cast of ''My One and Only,'' based on George Hamilton's memoir of his glamourous and adventurous mother, a role given to Renee Zellweger. Noth plays one of her wealthy beaus, and Chicago filming looks to be part of it. ... Also heading our way could be Hilary Swank, Ewan McGregor, Richard Gere and Chicago's own Virginia Madsen, the stars of ''Amelia,'' based on the life of ill-fated aviatrix Amelia Earhart. Most of the filming is slated for Toronto, but Our Town could snare a few days of shooting.
    ONE ON ONE: Poetry Foundation president John Barr will give a free, one-night-only staged reading of his satiric play-in-verse ''The Adventures of Ibn Obcit'' June 8, at Victory Gardens Greenhouse Theater -- directed by Second City co-founder Bernie Sahlins. ... Author and broadcaster Jenniffer Weigel is bringing to life her moving memoir Stay Tuned: Conversations With Dad From the Other Side -- as a one-woman show. ''I'm Spiritual, Dammit!'' is scheduled to open Aug. 15 at the Viaduct Theatre. Before that, Weigel will have a pre-Father's Day book signing June 11 at Borders on State. Stay Tuned traces Weigel's journey into the world of psychics and mystics -- attempting to communicate with her father, beloved Chicago broadcaster Tim Weigel, who died of a brain tumor in 2001.
    SEEN ON SCENE: Rihanna and Chris Brown hung out at Excalibur after the ''Glow in the Dark'' tour. ... While here for the WTTW gala, Tony winner and Winnetka native Christine Ebersole dined at Table Fifty-two. ... Barbara Walters, here boosting her Audition memoir, slipped into Le Colonial Monday night, rating raves from the staff for tipping very generously.
    HEADED HERE: Chicago native Lisa Zane will be back home for a June 12 gig in the new Club Ravinia cabaret at the North Shore summer music festival. ... Then the one-and-only Tommy Chong of ''Cheech & Chong'' fame will be headlining at Zanies Vernon Hills on June 13 and 14.
    MIRROR IMAGE: Thanks in large part to the success of Ben Barnes' first major film -- ''The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian'' -- the English actor has been flooded with scripts. He already has inked a deal to play another title character -- in a film based on the Oscar Wilde classic The Picture of Dorian Gray.
    MATTER OF DEGREES: DePaul University's honorary degree recipients this year include David Simon, creator of HBO's acclaimed ''The Wire'' and author of Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, the basis of the long-running NBC series; Walter Parazaider, co-founder of the rock band Chicago, and Bob Edwards, the distinguished broadcast journalist and public radio news pioneer -- for decades the voice of ''Morning Edition.''

    Seriously doubt "Daddy" has any intention of changing at this stage in his life. W/o control over his daughter, particularly Jessica, he's nothing but an old guy trying to look hip. Have the impression "Daddy" has been a problem since before January when hints surfaced then that Romo fed up. This will all be resolved by TC when Romo gives both of them the final boot.
