Simpson Break-Up Announcement "Calculated"

Brace yourself for this one: people don't like Joe Simpson!?!?

Now I hate to kick you while you're down, but there's more. Tabloid journalism television doesn't broadcast live during Thanksgiving weekend!?!?

If Page Six hasn't ruined your appetite by now, reading the story in toto surely will.
JOE Simpson is being called the grinch who stole Thanksgiving. Jessica Simpson's father, who's seen as the puppetmaster behind Jessica and her soon to be ex, Nick Lachey, released the announcement that they were finally calling it quits at 10 p.m. Wednesday night. The late call meant staffers for "Entertainment Tonight," "The Insider," "Access Hollywood" and Extra!" — which had all pre-taped their Thursday and Friday shows — had to work on Thanksgiving. "They got their holidays, but we didn't," growled one staffer. "They couldn't have waited one day? This was so calculated."
I know, I know. Calling the timing of Jessica Simpson's announcement "calculated" is a bit uncalled for, but let's cut this unnamed staffer a little slack for speaking in the heat of the moment. Surely he or she has had two days to regret these alarmist, hysterical words already; let's not add to their troubles.
