Jessica Simpson humiliated at DMV

Jessica Simpson found out this week that celebrity status doesn’t count for much when you want to renew your driving license at the Department of Motor Vehicles. An eyewitness revealed what happened when Simpson entered the office and passed by “regular folk” waiting in line: “Jessica didn’t want to sit with the average Joes who were ahead of her. So she went to the front desk and asked in a low voice if she could have access to a private room while waiting for her number to be called.” Turns out, the employee wasn’t impressed by Simpson’s fame, and answered her in a loud voice: “Miss Simpson, we didn’t do that for the governor and we certainly aren’t doing it for you!” The 30-year-old singer/actress apparently was on the verge of tears as she went to find a seat. Her name was called two hours later, the source added. “Jessica pouted and scowled as she sat with her arms folded and stared straight ahead, kicking her foot,” said the eyewitness. “But hopefully she learned… everyone gets treated the same way at the DMV.”

    Such a contrast to Hugh Grant, who waited patiently hours to be seen at a hospital last week, refusing to butt in line.

    Wasn’t there that article about Hugh trying to use his fame to get a table at a restaurant a while back? They didn’t give him one and he left while muttering “I’m Hugh Grant…” or something.

    Gotta love the DMV! Just when you thought they only power-tripped on us ordinary folks!

    K that DMV lady is rude..if you are famous…and you are waiting with all these ppl who are ogling over your ..most likly staring..or asking for autographs..maybe she just wanted some privacy.
    All Ms Simpson asked for was a private room to sit in. not to cut the line..nothing like that. so why not give her the place to sit while she waits..in peace. I would have left if I were her.

    Jessica just posted on her Twitter yesterday that this isn’t true. She said she hasn’t been to the DMV in years!

    Do we even know if this story is true? Where’s the proof?

    Good for the little SNOT

    True everyone should be treated equally, but the DMV employee should have been a little more considerate and choose a lower tone. I’m not defending anyone in this case, but speaking from a bad experience I had when getting my license at 16, the DMV employee practically yelled at me for asking a ligit question. She made me look like a dumb-ass in front of so many people, but little did she know her supervisor was within earshot and gave her sh*t…karma baby!!!

    true, the DMV woman didn’t have to be loud about it. the whole idea was that ms. simpson was trying to be low-key. the DMV woman was probably just some fat hater.

    Hey Scott M, I guess your bad experience with the DMV means you got your license in the US. I think the Ministry of Transportation here in Canada is not as bad. It’s actually much more efficient than it used to be.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

  15. the particular word of advice is to prevent growing water on it even though the ugg just isn’t water-resistant, always water resistant,

    Green wood does work if you can give it some extra time to dry out naturally, as the sap may ignite if placed over a fire to dry.
