Umm...

 

Heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson is developing a remake of classic U.S. sitcom I Love Lucy with the expectant star in the lead role.

 

The singer/actress is due to give birth to her first child imminently, but she's already working on her showbiz return and has reteamed with TV producer Ben Silverman, the man behind her new design show Fashion Star, to breathe new life into the popular 1950s comedy.

 

And Simpson has her sights set on stepping into Lucille Ball's shoes to revive the role she made famous.

 

During an interview with Elle magazine, Simpson is heard chatting about the prospective project with Silverman, during which he asks her, "What about that I Love Lucy thing you and I were talking about? The sitcom. We really should go to the networks. It could be superfunny."

 

Simpson replies, "Let's develop it. But I think it would be good to play myself, a new mum, and not do anything so different that people won't grasp it."

 

And Silverman is convinced the show will be a hit with Simpson in the starring role.

 

Speaking to Elle magazine, he says: "She is just naturally funny. Jess has such a disarming wit for a beautiful girl, making fun of herself in the most charming way."

 

The original I Love Lucy series, which centred around titular character Lucy Ricardo (Ball), her singer husband Ricky Ricardo and their best friends, ran from 1951 to 1957.

In my best Mrs. McGillicuddy cackle, "Why, she's not fit to touch the hem of Lucy's burnoose!!!"

 

And I actually really like Jessica Simpson, but gahhhhhhhhh!! As Brock said, let's please nip this thin' in the bud! :lucydisgust:

 

Jessica Simpson can kiss my ass. She's as dumb as a rock anyway. I'm surprised she even knows who Lucy was.

 

And when the hell is she gonna drop that calf? She's been pregnant for 5 years. :marionstrong:

An I Love Lucy remake is an appalling idea, but I've liked Jessica Simpson since I was in elementary school. lol. I think most of that dumb bimbo stuff is an act. She's made several references to Lucy over the years, and I remember she even wore a pair of I Love Lucy pajamas on an episode of Newlyweds (which was totally my not-so-guilty guilty pleasure in high school). And Lucy got pretty huuuuuge herself during both her pregnancies! ;)

"Is Chicken of the Sea tuna or chicken?" ROFLMAO :lucythrill:

 

I don't know, I think if she laid off the Haugen-Daaz maybe she wouldn't have gained so much weight. Lucy got fat too but that's just healthy Cuban sperm. :lucysmirk:

 

Sorry....

Oh I wasn't offended at all, I just honestly feel bad for Jessica Simpson (well as bad as one can feel for a beautiful millionaire celebrity :marionstrong: ) sometimes because she's often made fun of for seeming stupid or looking fat and I don't always think that's the case.
