Jessica Simpson on conceiving her second child “it was like a one-night stand”

Yesterday Kaiser reported that Jessica Simpson had inexplicably signed a deal to star in a sitcom based on her life, on NBC of course, in which she would play herself and actors would play the parts of her husband fiance and family. It sounded like a terrible premise and a dumb twist on her reality show, in which we learned that she’s not the brightest bulb and that she shares way too much information about her bodily processes. (That was honestly the first time I’d ever heard the “dropping kids off at the pool” expression. Eww.) Jessica was on The Tonight Show this week to promote Fashion Star and she of course gave TMI about how her second, unexpected pregnancy came about. She did have some funny self-deprecating things to say about how much weight she gained in her first pregnancy, adding that she “had fun” at the time and realized later “that it wasn’t all water weight.” Anyway here’s some of what Jessica said. She also confirmed that she’s due “in the summer.” It’s going to be a summer of babies! Duchess Kate and Kim K are also due around that time.

On her last pregnancy
The last time I ate everything in sight. I was really happy to be pregnant and I just didn’t even step on the scale. I was the person who turned around and said, ‘Just don’t tell me, I’m having fun.’

I guess I just didn’t realize you could gain that much weight that quickly. I had fun doing it but once I had Maxwell I realized that it all wasn’t water weight and I had to really work hard. In four months I lost over 50 pounds.

On her favorite food
Everything. I didn’t really make any healthy good decisions.

On how Weight Watchers responded to her pregnancy
I think that they were as shocked as I was, because it was so soon and I was hitting all these goals and everybody was celebrating and it was like ‘ah, there she goes again’ But they were really supportive I mean, what can you do? I just said ‘Next time around, I’ll promise I’ll be healthier throughout this pregnancy.’

On how this pregnancy is going
I’ve been puking. I’ve been really, really sick so I can’t wait to actually be able to crave something like I did in my first pregnancy. I’m due in the summer so I still have a ways to go — hopefully I start feeling better.

On if she’ll get married soon
We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up. I’m doing it very backwards, I know! I’ll just keep my legs crossed this time.

On how she got pregnant again
I was extremely shocked. I was shocked because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. And, you know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened, all over again!

[Quotes via NBC video, Extra and Access Hollywood]

Classic Jessica. The audience audibly groaned when she said “I’ve been puking.” It’s not a “one night stand” when it’s your husband or boyfriend and the guy lives with you, even if you haven’t had sex in a while. Semantics aside, this wasn’t a bad interview with Jessica and she came across as funny, albeit unable to censor herself. I just want to say – holy chi chis! (Credit: Michael K) Her boobs are huge and they’re pushed up into a shelf like Christina Hendricks’ rack. Here’s another screenshot I took. Also, her hair looks very wig-like.

As an aside, I just want to say NBC sucks for the way they treat their shows. They can hire Jessica Simpson for what will surely be a mediocre comedy but they can’t even be bothered to air the already-completed episodes of the amazing, critically acclaimed cult hit Community. NBC is excellent at getting quality shows, but they always screw it up somehow. I’m just waiting for the axe to fall on Parenthood, I love that show.

    Kaiser, you are so right about how much NBC sucks. It’s ridiculous.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Just wondering, Community is NOT cancelled, right? I thought the 4th season was supposed to start this month and since I watch it online (nothing enjoyable ever airs on tv here in Italy: The Good Wife airs at 11:45 PM, as if it’s p0rn or something!) and I have no idea whatsoever of what US channel it is on or if it is going to be aired at long last.

    • hoya_chick says:

      Yea, I had a mini rant yesterday about how NBC sucks, because you know, they DO! Her show is a terrible idea and I bet it will get loads of money and publicity poured into it (before being cancelled after 3 episodes) while my poor little Community continues to get no love. I wish they would let it go to another network, so it could be successful, the fans would follow it. And Fashion Star got a second season? I don’t know any one who watches that show or who won the last time around.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        It’s sad. Just like arrested development. Smart, funny shows will always have to struggle, while the dumb ones flourish. I don’t understand it. I just hope the season doesn’t get pushed back again.

      • Jenna says:

        Viva la Communite!!! Six seasons and a movie!

  2. Hannah says:

    God, she’s so big already. How much larger is her bump gonna get if she’s due in the summer? (No, I’m not criticizing her. Every woman carries differently etc. But wow!)

    • Skipper says:

      She’s showing quickly since it’s her second and her uterus was already all stretched out I guess. I hope her vaj had a chance to get back to its normal size so that the baby doesn’t fall out prematurely.

    • Rachel says:

      Yeah, I starting showing the first day of my second pregnancy. It’s like my body said: “Oh. This again?” Poof. Out came the stomach.

      • Lilalis says:

        Yup, same here. I’m currently pregnant with my second and I’m wearing maternity clothes since week 11.

  3. celebgossipgirl says:

    WOW she was KIDDING about the one night stand thing! People really need to lay off Jessica, WHO CARES what she ate during her last preganancy, WHO CARES how much weight she gained, etc? She’s happy, she’s rich, and she’s beautiful. I personally love her openness and candor, I think she’s so entertaining. Not sure if her show will be a hit or a flop (im predicting the latter) but people need to lighten up and relax. Jessica seems like a lot of fun and I cant wait to see baby #2!

    • Erinn says:

      And that’s you opinion. Let’s lay off of her because she’s rich, beautiful, and happy. Because when people are rich, beautiful and happy we should never criticize them for their errors.

      Thing is, I find her irritating. She’s pretty. I don’t think she’s gorgeous, not even when she was super skinny.

      And the fact that she treated her body like a dumpster during her pregnancy is upsetting. It affects her unborn child. She showed a total lack of trying to eat healthy for the baby. It’s not about the gained weight, it’s about the health that people were up in arms.

      I don’t find people without a filter at the same level as Jessica’s is cute. I find them crass. It’s interesting that because it’s Jessica, people tend to be a lot more forgiving when she says sooo many stupid things, than other celebrities.

      • handsome man saved me from the monsters says:

        Stop pretending to care about people’s health. If you don’t like fat people, just say that.

      • Erinn says:

        Are you serious? What a stupid comment.

      • celebgossipgirl says:

        I’m sure Jessica is really losing sleep over you critizing her for her “errors”.

        What she eats is frankly nobody’s business! A lot of people do things far worse to their bodies while pregnant, and again, it’s nobody’s business. You dont have to agree with it, but you’re wasting energy getting upset about it. Because I’m pretty sure Jessica couldn’t care less about what total strangers think about her.

      • Erinn says:

        However, you’re on a celebrity gossip site called celebitchy, with the name “celebgossipgirl” and you’re essentially saying we shouldn’t comment on the lives of celebrities. This is a little odd, don’t you think?

      • Em says:

        @Celebgossip, Jessica chooses to regularly discuss her health, weight, sex life, and bodily functions. She makes it people’s business and opens herself up to criticism. Simple as that.

      • celebgossipgirl says:

        Actually Erinn, I never said not to comment on celebrities lives. WTH do you think I’m doing here if I said that? All I said was that I wish people would lay off the haterade when it comes to Jessica. I’m entitled to my opinion just like you are! Calm down.

      • bluhare says:

        Problem is, celebgossipgirl, everyone’s definition of “haterade” is different.

        You like Jessica, cool. Some people dont’. Also cool.

      • jaye says:

        If you are irritated by her, you’re entitled to feel how you feel. But why be upset about how she handled her pregnancy? You don’t have a dog in that fight.

    • A says:

      People care cause (believe it or not) Jessica is a role model. She shouldn’t be using her pregnant body as a trash can when young women who may not be smarter than her look up to her.

      • Belle says:

        Not defending or criticizing Jessica… but the role model thing is nonsense. Most celebrities are horrible role models, and no one should be emulating them. If a young woman is pregnant, and is not smart enough to listen to her doctor instead of ‘looking up’ to Jessica Simpson, she’s got much bigger problems than that.

        At some point, rather than judging celebrities because ‘they are role models’, we should be teaching children that they are NOT role models.

      • celebgossipgirl says:

        Completely agree, Belle. If people are looking up to celebs like Jessica and the like as “role models”, they have more serious issues than what to eat when they’re pregnant. Celebrities are NOT role models, and if some young girl thinks eating junk while pregnant is great because Jessica Simpson does it? She has no business being pregnant. And it’s not J. Simp’s responsibility to make sure that young girl has a healthy pregnancy. Sure, she could set an example, but just because she doesnt makes her a horrible human being?

    • Tommy says:

      I agree completely. People need to lighten the F up. I also thought the “dropping the kids off at the pool” thing was hilarious. Gross and hilarious. Some people enjoy crude humor.

  4. Lemony says:

    Oh Jessica. You are so dumb. So so dumb. But you are sweet. And down-to-earth. 🙂

    • Lucija says:

      That sums her up, dumb but sweet. Isn’t Maxwell a name for a boy?

      • Heidiho says:

        Maxwell Smart – Control Agent
        Tennessee Tuxedo – Cartoon Penguin

        Don Adams – Voice of both


      • DesertPoppy says:

        Maxwell is a boy name but its trendy to give girls more masculine names right now. In the US anyways.

      • Feebee says:

        Some boy names are awesome for girls, I love Maxwell for a girl. But I met a lady called Trevor and I can’t get past it. Maybe her parents really wanted a boy.

  5. Veruca says:

    I have to disagree. Jess’ boobs may be pushed up, but there not the portable toast rack Christina feels compelled to advertise.

    And congrats on the baby! Morning sickness is from hell…

  6. Norah says:

    It’s not a one night stand unless she means like how she totally other-woman-Ed weight watchers out of their dream match.

  7. shewolf says:

    She looks amazing, as per usual.

  8. hoya_chick says:

    Wow, her hair looks like straw and that is a horrible dress. She should get a new stylist and hair person. How is she on a fashion show when she is always looking terrible?

    I can’t believe she thought that she wouldn’t gain so much weight knowing the things she ate. I can see why people like her but I hate the dumb blonde routine. She is what 32? It’s not endearing anymore, it’s annoying.

  9. HotPockets says:

    I can’t help, but love the girl, she never tries to be something she isn’t.

    • Nicolette says:


    • Em says:

      I disagree. Jess is calculating and certainly not as dumb as she acts. Her entire image is contrived so that a certain demographic will support her. Her, “Gosh golly gee, who knew an 80 pound weight gain was more than just water weight?” comments are proof of that. She pedals that same talkin point over and over to anyone who’ll listen. I can’t tell you how many separate interviews I have read for WW that have her going on about not being a supermodel, that she’s a real “woman.”

      • HotPockets says:

        Who isn’t calculating and contrived in the industry? She is still far more likable than 90% of Hollywood, at least to me.

    • rose says:

      I agree. I like her for some reason.

    • Sonia says:

      I love love love her. I just do. I think she’s silly and goofy and pretty and she cracks me up! I find her refreshing (that’s not water weight? whoops!) compared to the Kuntrashian “I have fertility issues because that’s the latest bandwagon…” let’s wait and see if she can lay off the botox and other crap while she’s pregnant. Talk about worrying about an unborn child! Not the one getting buttered poptarts, the one getting poisoned!

  10. Sam says:

    I’m not sure how it was a one-night stand when this is the same woman who gushed that she was back to doing the do 3 weeks after a c-section.

    I feel sort of bad for saying this, but with her hair and clothing choices, she’s beginning to look sorta…draggy? Not in the beach pictures, but the leopard print dress and hair isn’t doing her any favors. I cringe when I see her now.

    • epiphany says:

      Her total lack of fashion sense when it comes to herself is the biggest giveaway that she has NO imput on the fashion lines that bear her name – she’s just the tag to bring in sales, she designs nothing. Her shoe line is apparently very successful, yet she never wears them herself.

      • MST says:

        NONE of these celebrities where the clothes they “design.” Do you ever see the Kartrashians in their awful duds? If they don’t even want to wear their own designs, why should I?

      • Luxe says:

        LOL, I’m reading this comment as I stare at a JS dress that I have to take back b/c it’s too small! I love the print/style of the dress, but I know for sure Jessica wouldn’t wear it.

      • anon says:

        wrong again she does wear her own shoes often but like everyone else has other designer shoes that she wears & likes. Do you stick with one designer & can you truthfully say you would only wear your own stuff?? lol

  11. MST says:

    I think she is vulgar, tacky, and untalented, and without all that makeup she’s just average looking, like most celebrities. And that fake Playboy bunny shade of blonde looks terrible.

    Yet she’s worth millions and many people love her. Go figure!

  12. Patrice says:

    I really like Jessica Simpson, I find her to be hilarious, self-depreciating and lots of fun in interviews 🙂 However, either the girl is confused about what comes out of her own mouth (quite possible) or is just made of lies. In the big People Mag spread she did when Maxi was only a MONTH old, Jessica openly confessed to the interviewer that waiting six weeks to have sex was “the only rule I’m sort of breaking; I think I have the sexiest man in the world.” Obviously she isn’t seven months pregnant to little Maxi’s 8, so I’m guessing girlfriend has been getting busy the entire time which means the conception was hardly during a single “one night stand” (If what she said the first time was the truth. And why make something like that up? You know?)

    I can’t fathom wanting to have sex right after having a baby (eek!) but I wouldn’t at all be surprised if poor Jessica fell prey to the same ridiculous old wives tale that Tori Spelling confessed to which is that “you can’t get pregnant as long as you’re breastfeeding”. How and why does anyone still believe this in this day and age?? It’s so nuts! Aren’t doctors filling their lady patients in on the reality of it-you’re never more fertile than right after you give birth. I’ve always been told by gynos that nursing might reduce your chances of conception but is hardly fool proof birth control. My friends who welcomed ‘surprises’ 11 months post partum stress this fact 🙂 Anyway, congrats to Jess! She seems like a good mom and Maxwell is a doll.

    • Belle says:

      I’m kind of wondering if the ‘one night stand’ comment might have referred to not using protection on that one occasion? Maybe she was having sex fairly soon after the birth, but was using protection… even just condoms, except that ‘one time’.

      I can’t imagine having sex so soon after having a baby. I wasn’t even ready after 6 weeks (then again, my lady parts were pretty torn up at delivery). Still though, I kind of give her the benefit of the doubt. She tends to ramble on with too much truth most of the time, so I don’t think she would purposefully lie.

      • anon says:

        maybe the condomm had a hole in it.. lol

      • Belle says:

        Well anon, maybe it did. All I was suggesting was that her ‘one night stand’ comment might not have been about having sex only that ONE time, and getting pregnant… but maybe they were having sex, but got busy one time, weren’t using protection, but went for it anyway.

    • The Wizz says:

      May be she was just taking the piss (which is Australian for joking)

  13. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Ahhh..Parenthood. LOVE that show. Luckily, it looks like there will be another season. With one episode remaining, they keep promoting as a “season finale,” as opposed to a “series finale.” Plus, with all the new story lines, they have to keep it going a little longer just to tie them up. *Fingers crossed*

    • Luxe says:

      I don’t know…it seems like every episode this season has been a “Very Special” as though they are trying to fit all of those topics in one season. I don’t remember seasons 1-3 being like that.

    • Sam says:

      Parenthood probably killed itself two weeks ago when it showed a high school girl getting an abortion. Its like the curse of Friday Night Lights. It showed an abortion and its ratings almost immediately dove into the toilet. It was gonna get cancelled, then NBC let it limp along for a final season. There are very few things that can kill a show, but apparantly, that’s one of them. So it might have done itself in.

  14. Luxe says:

    Ha, as much as it grates us, she knows that “dumb Jess” schtick is part of what makes her money. She ain’t giving it up any time soon. I like her in spite of it though.

    LOL, who would have thought back in 99/00 that Jessica Simpson would have just as much money (or more?) than Britney and Christina off of something other than her music?

  15. Amory says:

    She does realize that one can get married while pregnant, correct? If it really meant anything to her, she would be married.

    I suspect that she’s waiting so that her marriage can be part of her new tv show.

    And please, for the love of all things natural, shave your head and start over. She’s become a caricature. Precious little is real about her anymore.

    • Em says:

      I’m no fan of Jess, but I will stick up for her and say that she can have a high opinion of marriage and want to wait until she isn’t pregnant for her wedding. Just because someone isn’t following a path you approve of, doesn’t mean that they’re doing anything the wrong way.

      • Amory says:

        There was no disapproval – just the fact that if she really wanted to be married, she could be.

        If she had a “high opinion of marriage” she would have gotten married unless her “high opinion of marriage” means that she wants to look good. That’s not a high opinion of marriage, that’s vanity.

    • lilred1 says:

      Well she doesn’t have to get married because she’s pregnant it’s 2013 for heavens sake,perhaps she wants to get married in a beautiful fitted dress.

      • Amory says:

        For Pete’s sake, no one is saying that she needs to be married. Jessica implied that she wants to be married, and I am merely pointing out that she could actually get married. It’s not like it would be her first marriage…

  16. SashaVice says:

    I think she’s cute, funny, and unpretentious. I don’t mind the ‘dumb blonde’ routine either- there’s an old school charm to it.

  17. Paloma says:

    Has Jessica not learned that unprotected sex can and does lead to pregnancy? Sometimes I cannot stand her naïveté; I really want to say stark ignorance.

    • Sam says:

      I hate this too. I know so many women who have unprotected sex and then say they were “shocked” to get pregnant. Or they use the cute little “we were just practicing!” line. Bitch please. Unless you’re using BC like a religious zealot-type devotion, you should not be surprised in the least to find yourself pregnant. I do wonder that if she was not planning on another child for a while, why she didn’t seek out something like an IUD or implant. They’re almost 100% effective, have no margin for user error and she can afford them. It makes me believe that she either did want another child or she wasn’t too bright with the BC and this happened.

      • anon says:

        even BC is not 100% safe.. there are times the pill is not strong enough.. Ist percentanges are the higest for non pregnancy verses the alternative but only abstinence is 100% foolproof.. & Jess is not one for abstaining. I think she is warm caring funny self depricating & just an all around real girl saying what many women say over coffee in the morning behind closed doors..She just keeps it real..

      • Sam says:

        Anon – Trust me, I know the Pill isn’t 100%. But the new stuff that’s out (mainly IUDs and Implants) are 99.999%. Pregnancy with those is rare. And now, the doctor speaks to you about BC before you leave the hospital with your baby. Frankly, for such a wealthy woman, she doesn’t have an excuse. If she really didn’t want another child, she could have shown some initiative in her reproductive choices. The stuff she’s saying makes her look like one of the young twits from 16 and Pregnant. BC actually does work if you use it the way its meant to be used. You’re just making excuses for her.

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        I hate to sound like I’m defending this woman, because I found her to be borderline insufferable. But, getting an IUD isn’t quite that simple (and is also not 100% effective). Most IUDs are hormone based which isn’t usually recommended when your breastfeeding (the hormones can decrease your milk supply). My ob also wouldn’t do an IUD until at least 6 weeks after delivery. I did a ton of research into the copper/non-hormone based IUD, but decided against it because it could cause heavy bleeding/cramping. So, if she’s breastfeeding, condoms/diaphragm are virtually the only options and those are obviously not 100% effective.

        I wouldn’t put it past this dingbat to think that she couldn’t get pregnant for some dimwit reason or another, like it was during her period, or he pulled out or something…

      • Sam says:

        Scarlett, Jessica admitted to nursing for less than 2 months. Breastfeeding isn’t an issue for her.

  18. Jeanette says:

    She looks so much younger and prettier without the makeup and boufant hair..

  19. Madriani's Girl says:

    For the love of God, tone down the blond, heffa!

  20. jennylay says:

    Oh, I like her! She tells it like it is. She seems like someone I could be friends with. A real person, without an agenda all the time.

  21. Laura says:

    I love, love, LOVE Jessica Simpson – always have, always will. She is adorable — both physically and personality-wise. She seems to have the ability to poke fun at herself and not take everything so seriously, which is refreshing. She is a very talented person too – love her music and her clothing line!

    I hope she has a healthy second pregnancy and baby.

  22. Dawn says:

    What husband? When did she get married? And yes she is pretty much harmless but very lucky to have stumbled into the fashion thing she isn’t the most talented girl on the block. NBC needs help but this is not it.

  23. Chordy says:

    Wow! Some of you hate Jessica Simpson SO MUCH! I don’t understand how she inspires that amount of hate. Sure, she’s no brain trust, but she’s sweet and funny and pretty much the most harmless person ever. I could see her and Jennifer Lawrence sitting on a porch in sweatpants drinking natty ice together (after she gives birth obviously!)

    • Pale fire says:

      I know I can’t figure it out either. Lol. So much hate …..People get so stuck in a everyone has to look talk act the same. She’s not your state senator calm down … She’s a entertainer from the 90’s who’s still trying to stay relevant.
      She’s not talking about murdering kittens. She talks about what she’s going through to the public like were all her close personal friends bc we live in the age of oversharing. If you don’t like her or her ugly hair which I actually think looks nice most of the time don’t pay attention to her.

  24. Memphis says:

    “I’m just waiting for the axe to fall on Parenthood, I love that show.” —

    Don’t even put that out there!! Every show I like gets axed. Damn. I have bad TV Mojo.

    As for Jessica. I kinda love the fact that she doesn’t self censor. It makes it fun to watch. I like her…I don’t understand why, but I do.

    • tracking says:

      Justjared has photos up from Parenthood set, apparently filming in Hawaii this week. Could this mean they’re filming already for next season? I hope so, but a little puzzling.

  25. lassie says:

    That’s quite a wig of hair you got going on there, Jessica.

  26. sheri says:

    When her clothing line came out…I would be shopping and love something and then see it was her’s, wouldn’t buy it. But, she has grown on me. Just something about her utter honesty and fruitcake personality. I don’t know, she’s grown on me.

  27. gg says:

    I’m surprised how good she looks with no makeup.

  28. Lucy2 says:

    Her hair looks awful. I wish she would go for a more natural look, she is very pretty but all the makeup and hair stuff always looks overdone.

  29. anon says:

    Sam let me tell you about IUD’s Had one it flipped back up into my womb & caused all kinds of grief & are not 99.9% effective. You can get pregnant with an IUD too. SO DOC Sam think about it again. I wonder Sam do you say this about every woman that has an unexpected pregnancy or just Jessica. lol

    Oh and Sam Jessica never said she didnt nurse after two months ever.. You might want to recheck that garbage too.

  30. scarlett says:

    I think the reason why people seem to dislike her so much is that one wonders how someone so marginally talented in pretty much every way imaginable can still be of any interest to the media and can still manage to make so much money. Seriously, it’s like stupidity and simpleton mentality are rewarded. And honestly, I just find her interviews grating like nails running down a chalk board. TMI…please I don’t want to hear about your flatulent problems or about your sex life. Put a filter on. She’s way too old to be playing the ditzy blonde airhead especially when she has one child and one on the way.

  31. anneesezz says:

    She needs to lay off the bleach. Her hair is way to blonde these days. She’s morphing into Dolly Parton. The dumb blonde routine got old awhile ago. She’s a mom now and needs to grow up.

  32. Lisa B. says:

    She’s been pregnant for 450 years in a row now and how come she doesn’t have roots showing? She’s not a natural blonde, as far as I know. Is she bleaching her hair during pregnancy?

  33. Sue says:

    I think she’s fantastic ever since her ‘chicken of the sea’ comment! Gotta love that she’s laughing all the way to the bank. And so unpretentious! It’s refreshing!

  34. bored_01 says:

    She looks prettier without makeup

  35. Kosmos says:

    I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t want to have those huge breasts….they get very heavy and some women have back problems from just the weight. It’s difficult to run or do aerobic exercise. You can still be big without having to be huge, so I’ll bet she has augmentation down the line perhaps after this pregnancy. It will also help to make her body look less heavy or bulky.
