Jessica's Mother Beat Her Ass for Screwing Up "9 to 5"
Ok, not really. But apparently Tina Simpson scolded her daughter in front of President Bush and Dolly Parton for her little performance flub that everyone has seen a zillion times.
Tina Simpson was furious with Jess after she flubbed lyrics, stood statue-still on stage while trying to hold her dress up, and then awkwardly hurried off with a few mumbled words to Parton. Tina told her daughter that the performance was "embarrassing" and "unprofessional," and mom was further incensed because Jessica had missed a dress rehearsal and hadn't adequately learned lyrics to the song -- which necessitated cue cards at the front of the stage. Jessica can be clearly seen reading from the cards during her performance.
Papa Joe apparently didn't think it was bad and thought it was cute and should stay in the show, but producers didn't like that idea and reshot it. Papa Joe probably liked seeing his daughter clutch her stomach like that. I like Tina, she's a hard ass. You know President Bush was too busy looking at Chestica's chest to figure out what was going on.
Dolly has forgiven Jessica and said that if she was in the same position she "would probably be so nervous and forget to wear her wig!" Dolly's the hotness.
