Former “singer” Jessica Simpson is out pimping her new reality TV show and pregnancy. And since the reality TV doesn’t look all that interesting, Elle Magazine is showing off the only thing semi- interesting about her, that pregnant belly.
Elle Magazine gave her the cover and a very flattering vanity piece on the inside, all focusing on her daughter to be, and her boyfriend what’s his name Eric Johnson.
On hopes for her daughter’s sense of style: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”
On taking tabloid brutality in stride: “I’m still standin’,” she drawls. “I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16…heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”
On her body subconsciously telling her she was pregnant: “We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge,” Simpson says, not shy about saying so. “Gonna ride our bikes, hang out…do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”
So yeah, there’s nothing new. She’s just knocked up, her dad is great, and she wants a very girlie daughter. Oh and her baby daddy is an athlete. And don’t you forget it.
I wonder if she will tell her daughter that daddy was still married when they first hooked up…
