The Daisy Duke Diet: Jessica Simpson Explains it all...Sort of...
Here's their exchange:
When Billy sat down with the star on the set in Baton Rouge, he got the secret to that killer bod.
"Tell me about the 'Daisy Duke Diet?'" inquired Billy.
"I'm trying to just really eat healthy. Try to stay away from sugars as much as I can... But I basically work out two hours a day," replied Simpson. "Yesterday, I had to work a lot, but last night I finally got to go to the gym at 10 o'clock at night and I was on the treadmill for an hour."
"Oh my God," said Billy.
"I know, but you've seen what I'm wearing Billy," said Simpson.
The rest of the article talks about risque text messages that Jessica and her husband like to exchange. It also includes a few quotes from Jessica about her appreciation for actresses.
Here it is, Dukes fans:

The connection to this blog? It happened at an "after hours party hosted for 'The Dukes of Hazzard,'" which was shot in the Baton Rouge area.
According to this article, folks were allowed to hop behind the bar and serve up alchol to their friends during the party.
The bar denies serving the three underaged teenage patrons in question.

50 Cent and the General Lee--Confusing Dukes of Hazzard Car Story
Not the world's biggest news story, but it did have a weird reference in it. The artcles claimed the new Charger would be featured in the upcoming Dukes of Hazzard movie.
I know they are using original '69 Chargers for the General Lee and hadn't heard anything about using the new cars in the movie.
I previously provided some information about the new Charger receiving a less-than-great response from Dukes fans and am curious to find out more about whether or not the new four-door Charger will actually appear in the movie, or if the article I found was wrong/confused.
Here it is:

Don't Forget the Archives, Dukes Fans!
I thought the page was just getting too long and might be slow to load for some of my visitors.
But today I noticed that it doesn't look like there is nearly as much good information here as there really is! There are tons of archived posts about the Dukes of Hazzard and all the movies' stars, etc.
If you look under the Amazon ads on the right side of the page, you'll see the links to the archived posts. They are all separated by dates.
If you just happened to stumble on to the main page here, but are looking for more Dukes of Hazzard info, check into the archives!
And, since I mentioned it, feel free to look at some of the Dukes of Hazzard-related stuff in the Amazon ads. There are some good deals on some good stuff there.
Anyway, don't forget the archives!
Kids' Site Talks About Jessica Simpson Daisy Duke Workout
Sort of interesting, because the article focuses on Jessica's butt, basically. Not the kind of material you'd expect to find at a kids' site. Nonetheless, here's the scoop:
While getting into shape for the Dukes of Hazzard, Jessica allegedly embarked on a workout plan that involved two hours of squats and lunges every day.
This plan was implemented because, in Jessica's words, "I have a white-girl bootie, so I'm doing all my squats to lift it a little bit and get some junk in my trunk."
The article also features an obligatory "Jessica is dumb" joke, which really wasn't necessary. Here it is:

Nice Little Plot Synopsis for The Dukes of Hazzard Movie
MTV.com - Movies - The Dukes of Hazzard: "The General Lee is back and so are the Duke boys in this big-screen adaptation of the hit TV series, brought to you by Jay Chandrasekhar of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. Set in the 'present day,' the story follows Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) as they cruise around Hazzard County and wreck havoc in their classic 1969 Dodge Charger. Together with their scantily clad cousin Daisy (Jessica Simpson) and moonshining Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson), the two good old boys battle the corrupt county commissioner Boss Hog (Burt Reynolds) when he and local Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (M.C. Gainey) threaten to take away the family farm. John O'Brien and Jonathan Davis penned the first draft of the film with additional rewrites handled by the Broken Lizard gang. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide "
Jessica Simpson Daisy Duke Diet Probably Wasn't Atkins
Whatever Jessica did to get into Dukes of Hazzard shape, it probably wasn't the Atkins diet. Once upon a time Jessica tried the almost-n-carb diet plan and didn't like it a bit.
"Atkins really messed me up mentally," she said. She reported binging on carbs. This was reported in Self magazine at one point, where Jessica also said her diet consisted of eating carbs in moderation with lots of salad.
She probably made some adjustments to get into Daisy Duke shape, but based on the snippet I read, I am pretty sure Jessica Simpson did not follow a "low carb lifestyle."

Quiz Reveals Your Inner Duke
You know those internet quizzes where you answer a few questions and it tells you who/what your most resemble? Well, I found one for the Dukes of Hazzard.
It's a quick little quiz and it gives you a photo and brief description of the character you are most like. It also provides you with the HTML code you'd need to stick the results on your web page.
I grabbed my results (yes, I did end up being Daisy Duke and not Boss Hogg, thank you!) and am thinking about trying to incorporate them on this page...
[EDIT] I went ahead and added my quiz result to the bottom of this blog's main page.
Anyway, the quiz is here:

Jessica Simpson: The Daisy Duke Diet and Exercise Plan Hot Topic
I knew when I started this Dukes blog that many people would be coming because Jessica Simpson is a hot celebrity and that they would probably be more interested in her squeezing into tiny shorts than the movie itself. So, I decided to try to cater to that audience as well as the movie fan audience. That's why you'll notice I provide as many links as I can to photos and videos of Jessica as Daisy Duke.
But Jessica Simpson diet and exercise thing sort of caught me by surprise. I did a post about her upcoming exercise video and the controversy about the workout and everything. I also had a post or two that mentioned a little bit about how she got into shape to play Daisy Duke. But I never planned on spending a lot of time with this site detailing Jessica Simpson's diet and workout regime (or is that regimen? I always get confused on that one...).
So, I decided to check and see what I could find out about Jessica's diet plan. Turns out, there isn't a ton of good information available, which is probably why people are stopping by here in search of diet tips, as well as Dukes of Hazzard news and gossip!
What's a blogger to do? I can either disappoint those who wanna know all about what Jessica did and did not eat and what kind of exercises she did or I can spend some extra blogspace digging up details on her diet plan.
I sort of compromised once already, by making sure I always add any new links to pictures of Daisy Duke that I can find. Why not compromise a little bit more and try to become the top information source for the Jessica Simpson Daisy Duke diet and workout regime, right?
So be it. Until surfers start to lose interest in the diet and exercise thing, I will be providing any info I can find on the subject. And, yes boys, I will continue to provide links to Daisy Duke pictures and video.
However, I ask one small favor in return. If you came here to find Daisy Duke photos or Jessica Simpson diet hints, please consider spending a few extra minutes looking around and investigating the Dukes of Hazzard movie, too. Even if your real interests are in Jessica's body (true for both photo-seekers and those interested in her workouts), you might surprise yourself and develop a little interest in the upcoming movie, too.
Thanks! And be on the lookout for tons more great Dukes of Hazzard movie news and information...as well as Daisy Duke diet info and all the photo links you need.
