Lies, damned lies and television remakes
Rumour has it that the two blondes were discussing Simpson's revival of the role that made Pammy famous, that of red lycra-clad lifeguard CJ Parker in Baywatch.
According to the Mirror, the 25-year-old Dukes of Hazzard star asked: "How did you guys run so slowly in the show's opening scene. You know, where you're running down the beach?"
After a moment's hesitation, the 38-year-old Barb Wire star explained "it was shot in slow motion".
Despite the rumours, Simpson has since denied any involvement in the Baywatch homage, which is expected to begin filming this year.
She told Extra at the MTV awards: "I saw that rumour, and I said 'What is that about?' I've never even heard about it."
Whether or not film-goers think the lady's protestations are too much, she wasn't the only star denying involvement in a television remake.
At the awards Kate Beckinsale was still refuting the whispers, started as the result of an internet April fool, suggesting she is to star in Wonder Woman.
Jessica Simpson did confirm that she will be starring in the film version of Dallas.
