Shoes & Porn, and why Jessica Simpson is no dummy!

So, my managing editor, Madge (an old-school journalist who believes women who want to be taken seriously at work should not wear make-up) walks over to me the other day and says:

“Honey, the only way you can make money on the Internet is by selling shoes or porn.”

Uh… Gee… Thanks, Madge! She had totally burst my bubble of thinking that my job as a multimedia journalist could actually bring the company huge profits someday. Feeling a bit depressed, I headed over to the mall at Pentagon City for some shoe therapy… and it was there that I had an epiphany.

Browsing through the hundreds and hundreds of sandals, stilettos and peep toes, I felt myself being drawn toward the Jessica Simpson Shoe Collection. Then, it dawned on me: Jessica may not be the dumb blonde that everyone thinks she is.

Although she is known for her “blonde” moments — famously asking her then husband, Nick Lachey, if her Chicken of the Sea canned tuna was chicken or fish — J. Simps is no dummy.
Long after her reality-TV career fizzled, her movie roles dried up and her album sales waned, the one viable enterprise that has steadily contributed to her estimated $55 million net worth is her Internet shoe sales.
Meanwhile, her former husband has been reportedly struggling to pay the bills, which has allegedly halted him from throwing a huge wedding with his new love, Vanessa Minillo.

Hmmmm…. maybe Jessica was right… maybe she was eating chicken! Nick may have teased her for making a dumb comment, but it is Jessica who is laughing all the way to the bank — and in her platform heels, nonetheless!
So back to my epiphany:
1) Jessica Simpson is smarter than we all may think.
2) I need to start selling shoes on the Internet instead of writing about them!
3) I need to buy some sandals from the Jessica Simpson Shoe Collection — they are so cute!
