Jessica Simpson: Newlyweds is “done!”

Jessica Simpson: Newlyweds is “done!”
Jessica Simpson says Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica will not tape any more episodes. E! Online reports that Jessica told US Weekly the show is “Done! We’re not newlyweds anymore. We’ve had our share of the cameras. We’re at a point where we’ll want everything for ourselves and our family.” They’re also at a point where they want to find new ways to whore themselves, and tired of trying to find new ways to explain why Nick would stay with such a moron. The 20-episode second season is currently airing on MTV Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET. E! says that “[n]either MTV nor Simpson’s reps would respond to the quote.” Jessica’s sister’s series The Ashlee Simpson Show will continue, of course; Ashlee Simpson is also releasing a new album, Autobiography, today.
