“Blonde” Gets A Boost

"Blonde" Gets A Boost

In an interesting example of any-publicity-is-good-publicity, Jessica Simpson‘s Blonde Ambition, which made headlines last weekend for its absolutely horrific box office of just $1,322 on 8 screens, saw its earnings rise a fairly whopping 74% in its second weekend, despite a static screen count.

Now, $2,300 is still a huge joke of a weekend gross. But for an “actress” who is quickly turning into a huge joke herself (yes, she was always a joke, but now she’s one without much financial prosperity), this is probably the best news she’s got career-wise in a while. When other massive flops starring singer-actress hybrids like Gigli, Glitter and From Justin To Kelly fell 82%, 61% and 77%, respectively, Blonde Ambition at least has one miniscully positive thing to note about its pathetic box office voyage.
