Simpson Proud To Have Beaten Britney For “Dukes” Role

August 5, 2005 By Jordan Miller

JESSICA SIMPSON was thrilled to beat BRITNEY SPEARS for the role of DAISY DUKE in THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, and has taken a backhanded swipe at the superstar singer.
The victory was all the more sweet because Simpson missed out on a part in kids show THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB at the expense of Spears and CHRISTINA AGUILERA – but the NEWLYWEDS star now insists she’s glad she never made the grade.
Simpson says, “I’m glad I didn’t get the Mickey Mouse Club. I got to be a normal kid.
“It makes me more proud to have gone through failure and then have success.”
