Jessica Simpson Trivia

Jessica Simpson was born July 10, 1980 in Abilene, Texas to Joe and Tina Simpson.

She grew up in Richardson, Texas, living a normal childhood as the daughter of a youth minister. In church, she was able to shine, using her gifted voice to attract an independent record producer. This producer was the first of many to see the potential for greatness in Jessica. However, because of the lack of finances the independent label went bankrupt, preventing Jessica’s album from reaching wider audiences.

Although heartbroken, Jessica’s dream to be on the radio remained. With support from her family, and her father’s managerial talents, Jessica’s independent album managed to work its way to Tommy Mottola’s desk, then President of Columbia Records. He was won over by her “pure heart” and strong voice. Jessica’s singing career with Columbia would take her all over the world many times over and include three major albums reaching Gold, Platinum, and double Platinum.

As a born performer, it was only natural for Jessica to spend more time in front of the camera both in television and feature films. Audiences were naturally drawn to her open and uncensored attitude, contributing to the success of the reality television series Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica (2003), which she starred in alongside her then husband Nick Lachey. She followed up the show by making the bold choice to fill in the famous “Daisy Duke shorts” alongside Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott in her debut performance for the film version of The Dukes of Hazzard (2005).
