This New York Times article (registration required) talks about how Joe Simpson, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson's dad, is shopping for a new youngster to make famous:
"After years of struggle, Mr. Simpson, a formerly penniless Baptist minister who these days wears a chunky diamond stud in his left ear, has guided his two daughters, Jessica and Ashlee, to success as MTV reality-show stars and platinum-selling pop singers. But now, just as he's established himself as a pop-culture Midas, Mr. Simpson is fresh out of children.The article talks about how he wants to "showcase the approach he and his wife take to child rearing, emphasizing values like honesty and abstinence before marriage." You know, I swear that show is already on TV, and it's called 7th Heaven.
Not to worry, Mr. Simpson has a plan: he wants to find a new child and turn him or her into a star. Of course, in order to find the right talented youngster, Mr. Simpson would need to hold nationwide auditions. And of course, the entire process would have to be turned into a reality television series, so Mr. Simpson has started pitching television and music executives on the idea. "
