Jessica Simpson, the Latest Person Who Probably Won’t Be an Idol Judge

Well, you can add Jessica Simpson to the list of people who are probably not going to replace Simon Cowell as a judge on American Idol, despite the existence of "sources" suggesting it's possible. According to TMZ, Simpson has had "several meetings" with Idol muckity mucks about joining the show, but at some point supposedly so had Howard Stern, Chris Isaak, Bret Michaels, and, just yesterday, Justin Timberlake and Elton John. At this rate, expect to hear that Britney Spears and/or Big Bird are on the verge of locking up the job. [TMZ]
