Jessica to become 'Working Girl'

Jessica Simpson has confirmed that she is set to star in a remake of the 1988 blockbuster 'Working Girl'.She will take the leading role in 'Blonde Ambition' in a role based upon the one that catapulted Melanie Griffith to superstardom nearly two decades ago.Strutting her stuff on the red carpet at the premiere of her latest film, 'Employee of the Month', Jess confirmed the news.'I'm so excited about it,' she gushed to Extra, adding that people 'are going to laugh'.Meanwhile, 'Jackass' star Bam Margera has once again added fuel to speculation that he had bedded Jess while she was still married to Nick Lachey.Promoting his latest film on the radio programme of shock jock Howard Stern, Bam said he had 'bumped into' Jess while she was filming 'The Dukes of Hazzard' with his mate Johnny Knoxville.He wouldn't confirm or deny that they had slept together, but did say that they were drinking margaritas at her parents' house 'and it went from there'.And when Stern asked him if Jessica looked good in the buff, Bam said she had a personal trainer for the film in which she appears in hotpants.He added: 'Yeah, she looked good I can't deny that!'
