While we're wading through the bins of gossip, interesting details are starting to bubble to the surface that, apparently, Joe Simpson has been trying to plant shit about Lindsay Lohan into gossip magazines. Joe, of course, "represents" his daughters Jessica and the Astonishingly Talented Ashlee:

“Joe called our head offices himself and ranted and raved about it,” says a top editor at one of the weeklies. “It was obvious he wanted to paint Lindsay as a bitch. He couldn’t believe anyone would dare ban Jessica from any party because, as he said, ‘She’s a huge superstar.’….Joe will do anything to make sure she’s in the papers every week and he knows Lindsay’s an easy target.”

Simpson, a former Baptist minister, requested that the pubs under no circumstances reveal him as a source and, in at least one case, insisted that they write that the scoop came from an associate of Lohan’s. By Wednesday, extensive coverage of the incident, fueled by her father’s smear campaign, sent Jessica into damage control mode, rushing to People magazine to deny any rift with Lohan.

Joe knows there's only room for one vapid lunch-dodger (and hanger-on sister) in town. Paris Hilton, you better watch your back.
