NEW YORK (CAP) - Just days after doctors told Jessica Simpson to take some time off to rest her voice, they've come forward to say that tests show she should rest her brain as well.
"We ran a series of EEG's on Ms. Simpson during a recent visit," said Dr. Ravi Karath. "We did not expect to see much activity - I mean, she's Jessica Simpson. Boy, were we wrong."
Karath explained that in a typical female brain, the electrical impulses follow a somewhat standard traffic pattern based on daily thoughts and routines. However, in Jessica's brain, he said there's no discernable pattern at all, with the electrical impulses "almost appearing confused."
"It is true that Jessica is very confused," Jessica's publicist, Rob Shuter, told CAP News. "She's been ordered to rest her brain. Frankly, I'm not sure it's going to help. She's always been this way."
Karath said the team of doctors who examined Jessica's EEG had no medical basis for their prescription, but figured anyone with that much brain activity and that little intelligence could stand some rest.
Jessica herself said she hopes her condition improves by next weekend so she can continue the media blitz in support of her new album A Public Affair. However, when doctors explained her condition to her, it created additional aimless brain waves and set her back by a week.
