I'm guessing Joe Simpson lost this round, but by God, when Jessica Simpson has a kid he is going to sell photos, video, and if the price is right, have pay per view right in the delivery room. You do realize that is where the whole photo thing is headed right? I think everyone is a little tired of seeing photoshopped parents holding their photoshopped kids in the same damn poses every single time.
How much money would you pay to be live in the hospital room with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as Angelina gave birth? You would not be treated to any NSFW shots, and perhaps not even sound. But how about five or six cameras in the room and you can watch all of them live. Do you know how much people would pay for that? Hell, I might even pay for that. I know it would make a lot more money than selling them to People Magazine. Think of the amount that would go to charity. Of course that would evolve into the actual birth being shown and that would evolve into watching the actual conception which would evolve into which lucky person gets to do it with the celebrity and make them pregnant.
Who Wants To Be A Celebrity Daddy? Great title for a show.
The point of all of this is that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz just went ahead and posted a photo of Manhattan Jungle Book for free. Apparently the money offers were not high enough so they just decided to look like do gooders.
