Jessica Simpson is not pregnant, just sick (and dumb)


Rather than update today’s earlier story, how about if we do a fresh one for this denial? Jessica Simpson’s rep (Papa Joe calling from his mastabertorium) tells Us Weekly that Jessica is totally not knocked up. YET. Yes, even though she’s looking… um… heavier, and even though she told The Early Show that she spent the morning praying to the porcelain gods, Jessica wants us to know that this wedding and this ring are not about some shotgun BS. It’s ABOUT LOVE, BITCHES.

Jessica Simpson is going to become a bride — but not a mom, at least not yet!

A source close to the newly engaged singer tells, “She’s not pregnant.”

Simpson, 30, provoked fresh speculation about a potential baby during a Monday appearance on CBS’ The Early Show.

Talking to CBS’ Harry Smith about catching the flu, she admitted to throwing up moments earlier. “I’ve had better mornings, I have to admit…I won’t let you smell my breath.”

Explains the insider: “She was just sick.”

Promoting her new Christmas album, Simpson, her parents and brand-new fiance Eric Johnson are spending their first Thanksgiving in NYC.

She told Smith about being “shocked” by Johnson’s Nov. 11 proposal. “I didn’t even try the ring on until 5 minutes in,” she explained of the $150,000 bauble. “I just sat there and cried with [Eric].”

On Thursday, the engaged couple celebrated their engagement with about 50 friends and family and her parents’ California home. “They were very happy,” a Simpson pal told Us.

Sure. I’ll buy that Jessica isn’t pregnant right now, and that she’s just gained a few pounds, plus her travel/daily wardrobe isn’t very flattering. Plus, she’s sick and maybe her glands are swollen, and that’s why her face looks kind of puffy. I’ll buy all of that, mainly because Ashlee “The Bad Un-Jessica Daughter” already had a shotgun wedding, so Jess knew that Papa Joe would expect a traditional non-pregnant wedding from his favorite daughter.

    *sigh* poor jessica. Can you just start showing us pictures from her shoe line? Much cuter than jess herself!

  2. The_Porscha says:

    Hopefully they wouldn’t pull this shit after Ashlee did the EXACT same thing, but none of it would surprise me. I do wish people would stop assuming this chick is pregnant every time she swallows down a bucket of chicken. Girl does NOT dress for her size at all – of course she looks heavy.

  3. Hautie says:

    I spy she has gotten her roots done… maybe her favorite hair guy lives in NYC. Thank goodness she has at least stop Paves from screwing up her hair.

    I am still happy for her. And I think her ring is lovely.

  4. bellaluna says:

    Yeah, okay, whatever. So she’s just *ummm* heavier. Fine. And in 7 or so months, the truth will set us free.

  5. heatheradair says:

    I’m going with “YEP, she is knocked up, and not ready to come out with it yet.” Isn’t that standard operating procedure these days? tabloids start the preggo rumour, you deny for a few months, when it’s completely impossible to conceal, you act like it’s brand new, exciting news.

    my only question: who bothers to get married simply because they’re pregnant anymore? Shoot, I come from an *exceptionally* conservative family and at this point (I’m Jess’ age) no family of mine would expect me to dash down the aisle just because Jr’s on the way.

    HOWEVER: having trouble imaging her doing a maternity wedding dress sort of look……

    PS: LOVE her nail polish shade. Love it.

  6. brin says:

    Well she had a traditional wedding the FIRST time, so now anything goes.

  7. Rita says:

    The reason people throw darts at Jess is not because people “hate” her. It’s because every little thing in her life has to be made public by her or papa. It’s annoying so if she’s going to keep putting up the targets, the bitches will keep pulling the trigger.

  8. irishserra says:

    I couldn’t see it before, but now that I look at those bottom pics of her, her stomach does look rather bloated. I suppose I can see where people might make the pregnancy assumption. I hope Jess is feeling better.

  9. Serena says:

    If she isn’t pregnant now, she will be pregnant before the wedding. She does not have the will power to get down to the size of her first wedding and she knows everyone will be comparing pictures. I think she will be at least 5-7 months fully showing in an empire gown…

  10. Jayna says:

    The one thing I really noticed in that interview was when he said, who is this guy? Tell us about him. And she clammed up. What was she to say? He has no job. Then she switched to he’s the most important guy, blah, blah. Daddy better watch out. Mr. Business Degree/No Job is going to started advising her businesswise. Mark my words. I have seen a lot of singers/actresses because of interference with mates fire people. Jennifer Lopez firing Benny Medina was because of Ben Affleck.

  11. islandwalker says:

    My husband just saw the second pic without the head ( as I was scrolling down) and thought it was Heather Mills. lol.

  12. beanie says:

    I feel so bad for this girl. I don’t think she pregnant, but I do think she is unhappy and there is an issue with drinking. 🙁

  13. guesty says:

    remember the newlywed epi when they were in nyc & she got sick from the cupcakes? everyone was speculating she was preggers then too.

    fast forward how many years & here she is again in nyc with the voms, mom tina by her side.

  14. gamblea says:

    why can she not walk by herself, every picture has one or two people holding her up?

  15. Persistent Cat says:

    Why in the world does she tell people she vomited? Good lord, she’s just so bloody stupid.

  16. Djen says:

    Isn’t she supposed to have bad breath anyway, because she doesn’t brush her teeth?

  17. Bitter fruit says:

    Whose shirt did she wipe her teeth on after the puking?

  18. Belle Epoch says:

    She looks DIRTY. Those hair washing stories she tells are true, I guess. YUCK.

  19. mia says:

    Say what you will about Jessica but she could teach Britney Spears a few things about good looking hair!!

  20. Lori says:

    Ok- if she is soo stupid (which I do not doubt) and can’t properly dress, how did she end up w/a wildly successful clothing? Hard work or luck or a bit of both?

  21. Twez says:

    You don’t really think she has anything but the most cursory of “Here, Jessica… ‘approve’ this for your company” contact with her clothing line, do you?

  22. dovesgate says:

    Neither. Daddy Simpson took advantage of her popularity at its height and started a line for her. Lots of designers on board and everyone it takes to make them work. Do you really believe she’s a business woman all on her own? After the travesty that was her Newlywed show and the crap with the different men? Nope. If she were actually working on the lines that carry her name, she wouldn’t have the time to find the men she comes up with. Maybe that would have been a better way to go.

  23. Zelda says:

    I suspect the “I’ve had better mornings” comment was made SPECIFICALLY so people would talk about whether she’s pregnany, then how she says she’s not. One sentence= two stories in the rags, automatically.
    There is just NOTHING sincere about her. Such a phony.

  24. bellaluna says:

    @ Rita – ITA. It’s not because people hate her; it’s because she makes it so freakin’ easy.

  25. Mary Okorn-Jimenez says:

    Oh no – she’s all kinds of pregnant.

  26. bellaluna says:

    Wowzers, I just realised how tragic that last picture is. Not flattering in the least.

    Nail colour lovers, try OPI’s “I’m Not Really a Waitress.” (I’m not being obnoxious; that’s the actual name of the polish!) Or maybe Sally Hansen’s #07 “Shining.”

  27. AJ says:

    Liking the fatness.

  28. archiepelago says:

    Why are so many people holding her up? Is she incapable of working within the laws of gravity?

  29. Stronzilla says:

    Listen, if they’re using the Papa Joe playbook then I wouldn’t be surprised if she is pregnant (and dumb enough to touch up her roots at the same time). To him having a pregnancy and a wedding to tie in with a new album coming out is the publicity jackpot and he could probably parlay it into another reality show. I can buy that she is having a revengagement, but the haste with which they had the party, etc., smells fishy. Just like her breath.

  30. anon says:

    check the last pic – she is totally preggers!

  31. la chica says:

    she wants us to think she is pregnant. that way the timing of Eric’s proposal would not look as if it was intended to upstage Nick. the upchucking story which left her unable to sing is supposed to serve as corroboration.

    however, because she is intensely stupid and can do more than repeat the lines she’s rehearsed, she herself ended up blowing her own cover in the interview with Harry when one minute she’s admitting that the whole thing was her idea, and the next minute she is desperately crediting it to Eric.

    her life is a sad pathetic mess of insincerity and pretence. it’s sadder that she has managed to buy herself a man who will play along with all the BS.

  32. mel says:

    I say she’s preggars and Eric ends up dumping her.

  33. Alejandro says:

    She’s knocked up, she even made a joke slightly referencing it on her twitter about watching Parenthood. No way Eric runs away now, he had his chance, now he’s stuck.

  34. Praise St. Angie! says:

    bellaluna, OPI has some of the funniest names for their colors, don’t they?

    but their polish is quite good…I find it chips the least of any major brand. Well, except for Butter, but that stuff is pricey…like $15 per bottle at a discount store.

    (And I have the color you referred to!)

  35. Kim says:

    i noticed a lot of people commenting about why jessica simpson is so disliked. i think a lot of the reason why stems from her almost palpable desperation. clearly, finding true love is tough. we have all been there at some point. it just takes some people longer than others. but it seems like this girl is unrelenting to the point where she has no other purpose in life. watching her on t.v., it’s obvious that she is rather dull, unsophisticated, and possesses a very naive outlook on life and the world.
    but why should this be? when love isn’t working for you (a good indication would be failed relationship after failed relationship), stop f’in trying so hard. she has all the money she will ever need. she has no need to work. so why not take some time and travel? go to college. learn a new skill set. go on a spiritual journey. i bet that almost everyone on this site would kill for the opportunity to get to know herself when things seem murky and confusing. but they can’t because there are bills to pay, work to be done, and just life in general to deal with.
    ugh. sorry for the rant but in a nutshell, when jessica actually decides (if ever) to devote even 1/10 of her energy into growth instead of finding “mr. right” and making sure the tabloids know every last detail, i think she will be much more palatable. done.

  36. JustBe says:

    Kim@35, loved your rant. feel exactly the same way.

    Initially, I enjoyed the Newlyweds show with her and Nick. Then, more of her real personality started showing and it was difficult to watch her.

    Now, the primary feeling I have for her is pity. She has so much going for herself (as far as wealth is concerned), that she could take a sabbatical to mature and grow, but she is the money-making machine that is keeping her entire family in mansions and benzes, so I don’t see her stopping the show.

    I think at this point she may be hoping/trying to get pregnant/married so that she can stop pulling the gravy train.

  37. Yadira says:

    I gotta say I do love the nail color she is wearing. That is all.

  38. Tomas says:

    She is FAT, people! Fat, fat, fat! And she has been for the last 2 years so stop the pregnant stories already…

  39. molly says:

    ok I don’t think she is fat
