Jess is also no stranger to stumbling out of restaurants with hubby Eric Johnson, but she doesn't care what her parents have to say.
"She told Joe and Tina that they can shut up or get off her payroll," says a source close to Jessica. "She's pissed that they made such a big deal about her HSN appearance, and now they're barely speaking."
It doesn't look like Jess is backing down anytime soon!
