Jessica Simpson Absent From The Country Music Awards

By  | 

Notice anything funny about last night’s CMA awards?

How about the fact that Jessica Simpson wasn’t there. This, for some reason, surprised me. Even though Carrie Underwood was the host, I still thought Jessica might be on hand either to announce or at least sit in the audience! After all, as TMZ pointed out, even Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Lil Wayne were there! You’d have thought with that list of celebs they could have squeezed room for Jessica to at least attend.

No, more than, you’d think with a new country album (which is mildly successfuly so far) they would at least allow Jess to announce an award.

Instead, TMZ reports that she was playing a casino in Ontario, California where half the tickets are still available right.

Do you think Jessica should have been there?
