    The layoffs are scary , it's happening everywhere , I had to let 2 guys go 3 weeks ago. I'll bring them back as soon as I can. I hated doing it</P>


    What type of plane were you flying in the picture?</P>

    We're not going to see it. There's no transparency. And hypocrisy is at it's best...

    Jessica Simpson, who's been getting flak for gaining weight, really does appear to have the weight of the world on her shoulders.



    Simpson had a near meltdown Thursday as she opened for Rascal Flatts
    in Grand Rapids Michigan. The singer fought back tears, forgot the
    words to lyrics and mumbled her way through a bizarre 38-minute set of
    songs.
    </p>



    Almost from the opening song of "These Boots are Made for Walking,"
    Simpson fought with her ear monitors, constantly trying to keep them in
    place, suggesting she was having difficulty hearing herself.
    </p>



    <object width="320" height="265"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hisozGn2QlY&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hisozGn2QlY&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="320" height="265"></object></p>



    At one point, she had her seven-piece band stop, then start over, during the up-tempo "Pray Out Loud."</p>



    After that, she forgot the lyrics to her single "Come on Over," causing her to apologize to the audience.</p>



    Things got so bad that, while introducing her closing song, "Do You
    Know," the singer said there have been times when she felt like walking
    off the stage -- "like tonight."
    </p>



    At the end of the song, she thanked her band for "having her back."
    And it looked as if she was wiping away tears as she walked off the
    stage.
    </p>



    So what caused Jessica's meltdown? It probably didn't help that boyfriend Tony Romo missed his flight to Grand Rapids.</p>

    Simpson is scheduled to perform in Champaign Illinois today

    LOL, Tony's dropping her like T.O drops his passes. And now she's too chubby to get someone hot to rebound for the media.
