Okay so you already know my thoughts on this and if you need a reminder click here.
However I also like this view on this from the prophetblog
“My vote goes to Jessica Simpson: Newlyweds made her a reality TV legend next to The Osbourne’s and Kim Kardashian, and her tabloidy popularity in the celebrity world makes her a perfect fit for a glitzy machine like X Factor. Plus, her ‘vibrant’ personality should also make for good viewing, setting her up as the new version of the cuckoo crazy Paula Abdul.
Paula had her time, and Cheryl Cole is just a no — in America, at least. And Nicole Scherzinger is way too boring for TV, so I’m not surprised her name has now been left out of discussions. It’s gotta be Jessica, unless they wanna book Khia for some real talk!”
Of course this focuses on Jess as a reality star but that is the thing about Jess to her benefit. She has a connection to some as a great reality star, to others as a great singer and to some others, a mixture of both.
