Jessica's Mom Steamed Over '9 to 5' Flub

12/7/2006 7:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jessica and Tina SimpsonJessica Simpson's mother gave Jess a verbal smack-down after her "embarrassing" rendition of "9 to 5" in front of Dolly Parton and President Bush at the Kennedy Center Honors last weekend, telling her that she should get out of the business if she doesn't want to put in the work.

Sources tell TMZ that Tina Simpson was furious with Jess after she flubbed lyrics, stood statue-still on stage while trying to hold her dress up, and then awkwardly hurried off with a few mumbled words to Parton. Tina told her daughter that the performance was "embarrassing" and "unprofessional," and mom was further incensed because Jessica had missed a dress rehearsal and hadn't adequately learned lyrics to the song -- which necessitated cue cards at the front of the stage. Jessica can be clearly seen reading from the cards during her performance.

Curiously, Jessica's dad, Joe, wasn't undone by the snafu, according to Planet Gossip's Marc Malkin. Joe didn't feel there was any need to reshoot the performance, calling it "cute," but show producers, reports Malkin, begged Joe to have Jess do it again, without anyone in the audience. "We almost cut her out of the [CBS] show," says a source.

Jessica's rep has blamed the mishap on nerves, and tells TMZ, "There is no problem with Tina [and Jessica] whatsoever."Train Wreck gallery: Click to launch

Hey Idiots ! ( Skanky Jessica Simpson fans )

It's not TMZ ! It's on UTUBE also !

The truth is that both Simpson girls are talentless Bimbos . Their parents have pimped them out to sleezeballs in Hollywood in order to keep the money coming in !

Pastor Joe Simpson and his misreble wife are total sleezebags -

Maybe she's taking slut star pointers from Paris too.. It's more important to be remembered even if you have to greatly embarass, greatly humilate and expose yourself part #2?
I think she staged it to get sympathy, to personally apologise and hopefully the main part in Pardon's lifestory movie.

Jessica Simpson is a very spoiled adult woman who acts like a moronic whiny baby. Her faher is to blame for this, he enables her to act like child and her mother who feeds off her income wants to admonish her for not acting properly. I think its a little too late for admonishments. Jessica Simpson is not a professional and does not take pride in her performancces. She is controlled by Daddy and Daddy babies her to get what he wants. So, this woman who should be on her own and get a non-relative manager is and will always be "Daddy's Girl Gone Crazy."

Jessica your mother is just concerned about you & loves you. She is your best friend and I would listen to her. She has your best interest at heart. I luv you and I love the way you sing. You are pretty and lucky to have such an exciting life and meet such great people. So glad your divorce is over and you can move on with your life & be happy.

Two daughters storming off stage after a mangled song! I wonder if Jess will repeat the performance as a parody a la Ashlee in the next awards show. Nice job, Joe. Perhaps your daughters are not cut to sing, and you are not cut to manage.
