YEESH!

And to think that just this weekend, they were all back together again and getting along!

Guess the reunion was short-lived!

The war between Jessica and Ashlee Simpson's divorcing parents, Joe and Tina, was set aside on Saturday as the family celebrated the wedding of CaCee Cobb and Donald Faison, but according to new reports, the singer and her mother were recently devastated to discover that dear old dad reportedly took out a $4.5 million life insurance policy on his biggest meal ticket…without telling EITHER of them and naming HIMSELF as the sole beneficiary!

Apparently, Poppa Joe did all of this in secret over 8 years ago, but Tina and Jessica were only made aware of its existence during a meeting between her lawyers at Dunnam & Dunnam and his business manager, David Levin!

It's nice to hear that dad approves of her man!

Poppa Joe recently spoke out about the his daughter Jessica Simpson's engagement to Eric Johnson, and seems nothing but thrilled for the couple!

He explains:

"This is the happiest she's been in her entire life. It's so wonderful to see. She is in love and I know she will have so many love songs to write straight from the heart for her new record. I am thrilled. I love Eric. I think he's such a great guy and most importantly he loves Jessica and makes her so happy. As a dad, all you want is for your daughter to be happy and she is. He makes her so happy and I love that. I could not be happier!"

Hmm…this certainly isn't the first time we've heard that Jessica is "the happiest she's ever been" with a boyfriend, but we will say that this time everyone might be on the mark!

They do seem genuinely very happy together! And we're glad that the whole family is supportive of them!

Congratulations again, guys! We hope you all share a lovely first holiday together!

Jessica Squashes Pregnancy Rumors - By Drinking Tequila!

We stand corrected (hopefully)!

Despite speculation that Jessica Simpson is pregnant, a source has come forward to reveal that as of her performance Tuesday at the Rockefeller center, she most likely ISN'T - because she was taking shots of tequila with her father, Poppa Joe, and her betrothed, Eric Johnson!

The insider reveals:

"They were very well-mannered and drank basil lime gimlets, pineapple 75's, Maker's on the rocks, margaritas and wine. They ordered a lot of food. Jessica let her guard down enough to steal a few kisses from her fiancé in front of papa Joe. Jessica, Eric and the crew settled on shots of Don Julio to finish out the evening."

Hmm…maybe she IS pregnant and she just doesn't know it yet!

LOLz! We kid!

Honestly, who knows at this point? We doubt she'd be foolish enough to drink if she were!

Thoughts??

Ashlee Gets Camera Shy At Pete's After Party

Lydia Deets Ashlee Simpson refused to grace the presence of the unfortunate souls that were attending her husband Pete Wentz's Clandestine Industries after party until it was clear of photogs.

According to a source, "Ashlee wouldn't even come down from her room unless assured all the photographers had gone, despite the event being to celebrate her guy's clothing."

Judging by the way she looked, we can't blame her.

Maybe she should have borrowed Pete's Hannibal mask.

But Ashlee's dad Poppa Joe, covers for Ashlee by saying: "This was Pete's special night and Ashlee couldn't have been more proud. She attended the after-party and happily posed for photos."

Suuure she did.

She should have just done the world a favor and stayed in her room.

It really happened!

Ashlee Simpson's made her debut in Chicago as Roxie Hart on Monday night.

And the Simpson family invaded the Great White Way to support the singer TV star Broadway baby on her big night.

Mom Tina, big sis Jessica who was looking curvier than ever in that disco ball of a dress, and Ass' hubby Pete Wentz made an appearance.

And we can't forget Poppa Joe! We're sure he loved all the attention his cash cow daughter was getting him!

But noticeably missing? Baby Bronx.

We're guessing they left him where his ears were safe. No need to subject a little tot to that kind of torture just yet.

Congrats on your first performance Morticia Ashlee! Keep it up, you know, if you want to still have some sort of career after this.
