Dad Simpson Dishes on Daughters

Joe Simpson -- the notorious father of starlets Jessica and Ashlee -- is sitting down with "Extra" and blasting rumors from his alleged controlling ways to the questions surrounding his superstar daughters.

"The media says that I try to plan everything. If I had half of the power they give me... Ashlee and Jessica don't call me and ask me. They call me and tell me," says the father/manager of his famous offspring.

Simpson also dished on daughter Ashlee's recent wedding to rocker Pete Wentz, saying, "I'm honored to have Pete as my son-in-law." When asked about the sex of Ashlee's Wentz-to-be, the grandpa-to-be added, "I would love to have a boy, but I know how to raise girls so I'm good with that."

Joe nixed reports that Jess split from QB BF Tony Romo, saying, "That's going well -- she is as happy as I've seen her in years." He continues, "He's a great guy. I love Tony to death -- he's just a good kid."
