Jessica Simpson

What a difference a year makes. Back in 2004, when Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were happily married and starring in the MTV reality series The Newlyweds, they acquired Daisy, a Maltipoo (Maltese-poodle). The dog's every scratch, sniff, and wag were dutifully recorded by the ever-present cameras: Daisy being toted around in Jessica's handbag, Daisy on the Dukes of Hazzard set, Daisy accompanying Jess to the tanning salon. In 2005, Nick and Jessica split up, but Daisy remains a loyal, yet slightly less photographed, companion to the blonde bombshell.
