Is Jessica Simpson still a hot cover girl? Or is Nick Lachey's ex-wife going cold on the newsstands?
OK! magazine — which reportedly paid Simpson up to $1 million to pose for half a dozen covers, not to mention a nice commission for her PR rep — apparently isn't moving the merchandise.
I hear that sales of the Jessica cover of OK!'s July 24 issue — about 540,000 — were 10% lower than the magazine's Jennifer Aniston-Vince Vaughn cover the week before, and 15% lower than the Britney Spears cover three weeks earlier.
"Jessica was their lowest sale in seven weeks," a glossy-magazine insider told Lowdown yesterday. "She's so over. She's a bargain-basement star who can only sell $1.99 magazines at best these days."
Simpson's flack, Rob Shuter, retorted: "A silly comment from someone who sounds like an 'outsider,' not an 'insider.'" He noted that Glamour mag — priced at $3.99 — has booked Jessica for its October cover. OK then!
