Jessica Simpson Worth $400 Million Dollars, What the What?
I'm assuming they are measuring her net worth in terms of net fat, because then it makes perfect sense. One dollar per pound. Shazzam! But seriously, she's fat, and so is her wallet.
We met in the Polo Lounge, the restaurant off the lobby of the Beverly Hills Hotel, in Los Angeles. She was wearing a dark, fedora-like hat pulled low. She told me it’s part of her fashion line, which is on racks in Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Dillard’s, and which, she said, is the most lucrative part of her career. “The Jessica Simpson Collection is a $400 million business,” she said. “My mom and I are creative directors. We have hundreds of people working, but nothing gets by us. It’s adorable and it’s affordable. What’s amazing right now, during this recession, is that, somehow, the business keeps growing.” (source)
