I realize she's a judge on that NBC reality show, but I view her more of as a has-been than someone I would be curious about. Given the rumors that she was pregnant, the eventual announcement and the gestation period that seemed to never end, I think this was a case of her camp saturating the market. The reaction I had was...well thank goodness she finally had that kid because I was tired of hearing about it.
All celebs (whatever status) are narcissists in their own way. But I'm not particularly a fan of ones who invite us into their lives through the reality show genre. I feel like this is just more of the same.
But as Rex said, good for her. If she can spread out her 15 minutes for being airheaded and spacey, good for her.
maybe they saw the baby on the front cover and
“My life has completely changed. From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything. We stare at her all the time. We can’t get enough!”
I've always felt kind of sorry for Jessica Simpson, and therefore kind of wanted to defend her, although I don't have a clue why. She can't act, sing that well...but she does seem to have a very lucrative fashion business, so good for her. I mean, can't people just cut her some slack? She's kind of banal, but she seems to be pretty harmless. She's not nearly as obnoxious as a whole lot of other celebs I can think of. As we say in the South, "Bless her heart...."
Jessica Simpson basically became a superstar because she's a complete idiot. People watched Newlyweds to see what stupid thing she would say next. She then proceeded to laugh about this and make a ton of money off her own idiocy and lack of talent, not to mention the utter hypocrisy of her actions regarding pregnancy and marital status after the way she marketed herself for so many years. I put her one step above Snooki and have no respect for her whatsoever and find her to be quite obnoxious.
As for hypocrisy of her actions, people change and mature as they get older and have life experiences. Her father was a preacher and he has to be one of the biggest creeps walking. I'm sure that had a lot of influence on her values as a young person. Since then, though, her sister was pregnant when she got married. Jess is divorced.....life happens, opinions and feelings change. She's expanded her world view. She was saying all that stuff when she was twenty. That was ten years ago.
