Jessica Simpson In The Running For ‘X Factor’ Judge’s Spot
Speculation and rumors have been circulating for a while now regarding the new U.S. version of Simon Cowell’s “X Factor”. Paula Abdul’s name had been tossed around and now sources are telling People that Jessica Simpson in is a frontrunner for a coveted judge’s spot!
“There [are] loads of conversations happening at the moment,” says the source. “No one has been offered a judging role yet as new names keep coming forward who want the role, but there are some frontrunners and it’s fair to say Jessica is one of them. She’s very keen.”I’m trying to picture Simon and Jessica together – it could be comedic gold. Jessica is so sweet and a little dingy sometimes and Simon is so gruff and blunt. I’d watch!
“She knows what she is talking about [and] is talented and likable. But Simon’s not in a rush to decide. The judges have to mentor on The X Factor – it’s more than just turning up for a few hours a week to appear on TV.”
Maybe her wedding isn’t the only thing she’s getting into shape for!
