Jessica Simpson's ambition to be a marquee movie star somewhat ironically has been derailed by her Blonde Ambition - as in the romantic comedy she lensed with Luke Wilson. The pic, which a source described to Us as "absolutely horrible" and "a bomb, mainly because of Jessica's acting," is being released directly to DVD on Jan. 22, says the weekly.

UPDATE: A studio spokesperson tells People that Blonde Ambition will get a theatrical release on Dec. 21 - in eight theaters in Texas.
