HOT: Jessica Simpson Laughs Her Way to the Bank

"Her celebrity has created a brand that is more sustainable than many others," said Jack Gross, CEO of Jeanswear for The Jones Group, which licenses Simpson's denim. Which goes to show you, being relatable to the public is a huge asset— flaws and all.
