Jessica Simpson turns to God, Twitter & alcohol in troubled times

Jessica Simpson heads off to the 2009 FFANY Shoes on Sale event, which benefits Breast Cancer research

The tabloids this week are full of stories about Jessica Simpson being pathetic. I’m kind of over that story line, but I aim to please. What’s interesting is that both the National Enquirer and In Touch Weekly basically are reporting the same kind of thing – that Jessica is depressed, morose, and falling into a deep well of self-pity. In Touch’s story revolves around Jessica’s alleged lingering feelings for (or about) Tony Romo, who is now dating Texas beauty queen Candice Crawford. IT claims Romo and Crawford are now living together, and that “It opened up an old wound for Jessica.” Because Tony never really invited Jessica to move in with him, I think. Whatever.

The Enquirer’s story is slightly less pathetic. It’s all about Jessica feeling like a “failure” because she thought she would already be married and popping out babies by this time. So she’s turning to God for help. God and Twitter. And liquor. Here you go:

With her romantic life in tatters, her career stalled and the brutal mauling death of her dog Daisy, Jessica’s loved ones are concerned that stress and heartbreak have pushed her to the edge.

“Jessica is in the grips of a life crisis right now,” divulged a family friend, “She does a great job of publicly hiding the pain, but in private she is an emotional mess. She’s so lonely that she frequently sleeps at her folks’ Encino home. Nights are the worst. Sometimes she calls her mom into the guest bedroom and asks Tine to hold her while she falls asleep.”

“She is beating herself up over poor career choices, and feels as if she didn’t give her best effort to her two-year relationship with Tony Romo or her marriage to Nick Lachey.”

Searching for answers, she’s turned to another source for inspiration – religion.

On Oct. 23, Jessica posted this on Twitter: “Everyday I am challenged to be the best version of myself. Can I do it?Yes!! Gods plan for my life is bigger than me…so is yours..believe!” Then on November 3: “This full moon is beaming through my window with grace. I am falling asleep encountering this intense moonlit dream. Thank God it found me.”

Sadly, Jessica also seems to use drinking as a crutch, say sources.

“Her family has been keeping a close eye on her alcohol consumption,” disclosed the friend. “Jess sometimes goes overboard and then gets very emotional. They want to be there to nip it in the bud before it becomes a problem.”

Jessica also fears her 30th birthday, in nine months.

“Jess hopes she would have a husband, baby and flourishing acting career by the time she turned 30… Instead, she feels like her best days are behind her.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, November 16 2009]

Damn. I say let her get her drink on. She’s had a rough year, and I don’t think she’s really some huge drunk anyway. She seems like the kind of girl who would get drunk on one margarita, spend an hour dancing with Ken Paves, then need to go home and go to bed. Hell, I’d love to go out drinking with Jessica. I bet she’s a lot of fun.

  3. grisgris says:

    Something tells me she is fine. her new show actually sounds interesting and she gets to travel around the world with her best friend while she films it. Have some champers and enjoy being single.

    did we just start calling In Touch – IT? or did I just notice this week?

    I read IT but my gossip rattled raddled riddled brain translates to Madge. “IT claims Romo and Crawford are now living together, and that “It opened up an old wound for Jessica.”

    I’m confused as to why Madonna is talking about Romo. Why is Madonna opening wounding the Simpson? Is it just me?

    Confused me a couple days ago too

    I still love Jessica even though she dumped Nick. I am STILL hoping for a reunion!

  6. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow, stacy…get outta my head!

    you made the same two comments that I was going to!

    Usually she looks tran-tastic, but she does look pretty here.

    and her jacket is SO cute.

    I love the tags for this post:

    I’ll gladly help her have a kid before she turns 30

  9. Guest says:

    @loca…love loved newlyweds!!

  10. Firestarter says:

    I turn to String cheese, chocolate milk and Mad Men in troubled times.

    She does look pretty in these pix.

  11. Juice In LA says:

    Me? glad you asked. I turn to Ice Picks, vodka and ether in troubled times.

    But she does look good. team Jess versus Team gossip? I go Team Jess!

  12. HS says:

    I think the jacket makes her hips look big. Otherwise, she looks super here.

  13. Bete says:

    She is lucky to be born in the US. If she was born anywhere else, her star would have faded long ago.
    It’s sad when music stars are more known for their personal lives than their talents and, ahem, actual work.
    C’mon, get off your butt Jessica. Do something, other than Twitter.

  14. Aprill says:

    She wants the biggest star she can get- not a regular guy, may be that’s why she can’t find real love. For that I don’t feel sorry for her at all.
    Her and that dad’s priorities are all wrong. Why would any one think John Mayer is suitable???????
    They need to stop looking for mega stars.

  15. sammy says:

    Nick is too smart to go back to her.

  16. Kevin says:

    If she wants to keep that figure she better go easy on the booze.

  17. Todd says:

    She looks HOT!!!

  18. Ana says:

    I think there is just something desperate about her. Guys sense it and turn away. You gotta have your own life and be happy with yourself. Guys want to be a part of your life not your entire life. But that is just my theory.

    Btw, I am loving this look for her! She looks so great! Pretty, a little fresh faced and natural.

    Btw, if she was good at hiding her despair publicly then we wouldn’t be reading about it.

  19. Buzzaroo says:

    It looks like a bit of a forced smile delivered to hide a sad face to me – poor jess!

  20. Merridith says:

    I bet Nick Lachey isn’t looking so bad these days huh Jess? Maybe you should have tried to work on your mar5riage instead of being too big for your britches and thinking you were an “actress” because you were in the dukes of hazzard.

  21. Merridith says:

    I just want to add I am really sick of the racoon look all these young female celebs are sporting these days. It is very unattractive, as unattractive as the lip fillers they also seem to like.

  22. la chica says:

    shoe would have had all those if she had stuck with Nick. the grass is always greener over the septic tank.

  23. VicLady says:

    Poor Jessica, she really has had a tough time the last couple of years. I think she has just got to stick in there and good things will start to happen for her.

  24. Sakota says:

    “bet Nick Lachey isn’t looking so bad these days huh Jess? Maybe you should have tried to work on your mar5riage instead of being too big for your britches and thinking you were an “actress” because you were in the dukes of hazzard.”

    So I imagine. A decent guy, with decent morals, and was kind enough to make a custom made Valentine’s Day gift and she spit on it.

    I would also appreciate it that she stop using ‘God’ as a sort of proof that despite her skankiness she is still a ‘good Christian.’

  25. Kevin says:

    Sakota, if you can, name a “GOOD” Christian. GOD knows we are not in a perfect condition through no fault of our own. Believe it or not he loves for us to ask for help as much as he loves helping us. I am sure he would prefer we stay in contact with him as much as possible, not only in times of need, but we aren’t perfect. Whether you or I like Jessica, God loves her, and wants the best for her just as he does for you and I.

  26. snappyfish says:

    why must we hear about this vapid creature? Why?

  27. BitterBetty says:

    Since she had her eyelids lifted her smile seems fake and forced because she can’t “smize” anymore.

  28. anonymous says:

    May I suggest # 26 when you see the name Jessica don’t even stop to comment. It’s a waste of your valuable time. lol

    I think many are in for a shock here with Jessica & a very poritive one I may add. I wish her nothing but the best in life.. Not many have lived the last two years with her nor would want to.
    Just remember you may wnat her back with NIck but also remember you never lived in that relationship. What you saw on TV was very scripted so it really is not reality at all. We all have been in relationships that look good on the outside but get into the insides its not so cool. Both Nick & Jessica have to be allowed to move on.

    Jessica I am very much looking forward to your travels around the world. I look forward to some humour & some real life stories.. You go Girl.

  29. Pippi says:

    Why do poster type to #26?? I never see any numbers?? there are names but not numbers and I am certainly not going to count down 26 post? What is up with that???

  30. Firestarter says:

    @Pippi- I am pretty sure the format for this website is the same on all computers, and you in fact are poster #29. Look to the far left of your name and there is a number. It’s the first thing you should see. Number, avatar, name.

  31. Linny Warren says:

    Why doesn’t she just do what she was born to do? SING!

    God gave her a gift. a gift most of us would love to have. I love to hear Jessica sing, but all she cares about is Fashion, selling shoes etc., and
    publicity. If she would just start singing again, all her troubles would disapear and we could once again enjoy her in the way God intended!

  32. Kevin says:

    Sometimes the name is written right over the #’s so you can’t make out the name of the poster. It is so hard to count to 26 after all.

  33. teehee says:

    I dont see numbers either.

  34. bellaluna says:

    I do not like to see anyone hurting, but it seems to me Jessica is learning some hard life-lessons: we don’t know what the future holds; don’t take the ones we love for granted; nothing is permanent; with age comes perspective; etc… If she’d focused more on her marriage to Nick than her career, she wouldn’t be in the position she’s in today, wanting desperately for someone to love her and to have children. I hope she stops bending herself around whatever man comes along and remembers what she wants; maybe then she’ll get it.

  35. SolitaryAngel says:

    My Holy Trinity during troubled times is: ice cream, novels and the sanctuary of my room–I grab 3 or 4 new books, a spoon and dive under the covers for a few days. It has helped save my sanity more than once.

    I felt contempt for Jess until the dog happened; I have a cat I got for my birthday 2 weeks before Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi, MS; she was one of the only things I had left after and she’s always on “her” pillow beside me during those troubled times, and good ones. I feel genuinely bad now for laughing at Jess cuz I know how upset I’d be if it were me. She DOES seem like she’d be fun to go out drinking with.

  36. Shadow says:

    I do not see a number either

  37. Icecat says:

    Wow. I was confused too. The numbers are gone. They used to be there, and the names used to be over them…Weird.

  38. Icecat says:

    I just made myself laugh, because while reading the story and comments… I choose the numbers being gone as the most interesting thing about this story….hahaha.

  39. Yae says:

    She’s basically a good girl.

    I’m not Christian, but she has a good spiritual base and a tight family unit.

    I’m not seeing what there is to complain about here.

  40. bingo says:

    She’s a hot tomaleeeee!!! LOL
