Jessica Simpson thinks we’re a-holes. And by “we” I mean “anyone who has sympathy for her but acknowledges that her puppy isn’t coming back”. After news broke of Jessica’s puppy Daisy being taken by a coyote, she got overwhelming public sympathy. Her statements that day gave the impression of a woman mourning the loss of a beloved pet. Unfortunately, yesterday it was revealed that Jessica was still holding out hope that little Daisy would be found alive, and that Jessica was working with the organization Find Toto to send out a doggie-style Amber Alert for Daisy. Yesterday, I wrote: “Oh, this is too sad. Isn’t someone going to tell Jessica that her dog is gone? I know it hurts, I know it sucks. But why drag it out? It’s just tragic, especially considering Jessica saw the coyote with Daisy – it’s not like Daisy simply went missing. I don’t care how ‘fast’ Daisy is, that coyote is going to eat her.”
Now Jessica has called me out, and called out anyone who is all “Poor Jessica, her poor puppy is dead, and it would be better for her to acknowledge it.” Jessica tweeted to us: “Still holding out hope despite the a–holes that say is it a dumb thing to do. Daisy is my baby … why would I stop searching? I’m a mom”. Aw… damn it! Now I feel like such a bitch.
Cynics would say that a maltipoo snatched by a hungry coyote on Monday probably wouldn’t be alive on Thursday, but Jessica Simpson isn’t giving up hope of seeing her beloved Daisy again.
“Still holding out hope despite the a–holes that say is it a dumb thing to do. Daisy is my baby … why would I stop searching? I’m a mom,” she wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.
By Wednesday, a dog-finding service, FindToto.com, had been making calls to some 1,000 of her neighbors asking if they’d spotted any sign of the missing Daisy. She also created a sign offering a reward for her dog’s return.
On Tuesday night, however, she apparently took at least a one-hour break from searching and grieving.
“Everyone watch my beautiful sister be a creepy b—h on Melrose Place tonight!!!” she wrote on Twitter at 10:10 p.m. “Tune in! xo”
I consider myself my puppy’s mom too – he’s my little (100 pound) fur baby, and I would be devastated if a coyote attacked him. Although my puppy would give that coyote a run for his money – he’s quite the hunter! I’m such a proud mama. Anyway, I think the situation is 95% sad and 5% funny – funny because Jessica has taken to Twitter not only to perhaps contact the coyotes who abducted her dog, but she’s also using Twitter to defend herself against us “a–holes” who are trying to gently convince her that all is lost. My heart still goes out to her. She really did love her baby. Please, Jess, don’t call me an a–hole anymore. I’ll do better.
Guess what other “a–hole” is chiming in on Jess’s lost/dead dog? Martha Stewart! Martha told Us Weekly last night that the coyote attack was “pretty sad.” Then Martha became an a–hole. She continued, “She should have watched it more closely, though. She should have been more careful.” It seems Martha met Daisy when she and Jessica worked on a commercial for Macy’s. Martha’s advice to Jessica is: “Get another dog…I think it’s very important to get another dog, someone else to love. You just have to find the dog that’s the right match for you.” Expect Jess’s Twitter reaction soon, a–holes.
