What a weird interview.
Ch-ch-check it out (below) to get the full story!
Talk about worlds colliding!
In a sneak peek for Monday's episode of Vanderpump Rules, it was revealed that Joe Simpson is making a cameo appearance! Yup, Jessica Simpson's father is gracing Bravo with his presence. What a small world!
Apparently, Tom Sandoval stepped away from his "busy" career as a bartender at Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant SUR in order to work with the dadager. In case you didn't know, in the time between Newlyweds and now, Mr. Simpson's blossomed into a budding fashion photographer. Huh.
Nonetheless, Sandoval and his pal Tom Schwartz were pretty pumped to meet the With You singer's dad. Schwartz couldn't contain his glee as he commented:
"I remember being in college, just sitting on my couch, watching Newlyweds, watching Joe Simpson on TV. And now, Tom hits me up, and he's like, 'I'm going to shoot with Joe Simpson.' Maybe, like, Jessica Simpson will pop out!"
LOLz! The one sad thing about this clip is the footage of Joe is from months before he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. As we previously reported, Ashlee Simpson's poppa has since started radiation treatments. Tough break.
Regardless, we're the 58-year-old would want you to ch-ch-check out his cameo (above)!
Sending him love.
Joe Simpson has reportedly begun radiation treatments for his prostate cancer, according to Us Weekly.
A source said:
"Joe just started radiation. He feels fine, he's getting through it and still working. It's all scheduled once a week. He's super optimistic. Doctors are hopeful that this will take care of it and be the last step, and he will hopefully then be in remission and cancer-free. Joe just says he feels like it's like going to get a checkup."
The 58-year-old was diagnosed last year, and underwent surgery in September.
The source added that keeping busy with photography work is also helping take his mind off the situation:
"He's just working and hanging with his kids. He's not slowing down at all. He's actually been doing some bigger campaigns and shoots. He wants to keep his mind off of it. His work helps it."
That's awesome! We're glad he's still able to do his work and stay active!
Moreover, the health scare has also brought Joe closer to his children, especially to daughter Jessica Simpson. The source said:
"This had made their relationship stronger. She's been awesome. Jessica was the one he wasn't as close with, and this made them so close. They're all closer because of what he's going through."
Thank goodness he has such a great support system. This is definitely a time of difficulty and the more people surrounding him with love the better.
Here's hoping for a quick recovery!

Joe Simpson is certainly a fighter.
As you may know, Maxwell Drew is the star of her momma Jessica Simpson's Instagram account — and on Tuesday the adorable pictures kept rolling in with this photo of the four-year-old horseback riding!
The 36-year-old proudly shared the pic of her mini-me with the caption:
Remember that time Jessica Simpson thought her tuna was chicken?
She certainly does!
In case 2003 is too distant of a memory for you, the 36-year-old once starred in the reality show Newlyweds alongside her then-husband Nick Lachey… and let's just say the songstress had her fair share of brain farts.
To refresh your memory:
Our hearts continue to go out to Joe Simpson.
After undergoing surgery two months ago, reports said the 58-year-old is "feeling great now and is optimistic" after all of the support he received from his loved ones.
On Wednesday night, Joe acknowledged his cancer battle with a cryptic Instagram post calling the disease a "dream killer." So sad.
Our hearts go out to this famous family.
But, a source told Us Weekly the 58-year-old is doing well, after having surgery for the illness two months ago. The insider explained:
"The surgery went well."
The confidante also confessed that his daughters have been "super supportive" during this tough time.
The good news is his rep also confirmed to People that the famous father is in recovery, and a source even told the mag he's currently in good spirits, revealing:
