Jessica Simpson is going to be on Oprah tomorrow, Wednesday, March 3. The show has already been pre-taped, and Oprah released a commercial for it (see it here). Jessica is being interviewed to promote her new VH1 show, The Price of Beauty, but of course Oprah had to ask Jessica about the two most important milestones of Jessica’s past year: the “mom jeans” incident and John Mayer’s epic Playboy interview, in which he described Jessica as “sexual napalm” and basically said that he wanted to snort her like cocaine she was so addictive. Jessica has been keeping pretty quiet about the Mayer stuff, only giving the public a few cryptic tweets – although the tabloids were saturated with “Jessica and Jennifer Aniston are so pissed at douchey John Mayer” stories. Anyway, for all intents and purposes, this Oprah interview will be the first time Jessica talks about John Mayer. And Oprah has only given us a small slice!
Jessica Simpson is finally opening up about John Mayer’s raunchy Playboy mag comments.
“I don’t want people to know how I am in bed!” Simpson, 29, laments in an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show to air Wednesday.
Mayer likened his ex girlfriend — whom he split from in 2007 after about a year of dating — to “crack cocaine” and “sexual napalm” in the March issue of the lad mag. He later apologized for being “an a–hole.”
Simpson also admitted she struggles with criticism of her weight.
“It’s a really hard thing for me to talk about,” the clearly upset reality star (her show, The Price of Beauty, debuts March 15 on VH1) tells Oprah.
“You were a size 4 and people were calling you fat?” the talk show host, 56, says in disbelief, referring to infamous mom jeans Simpson wore to a chili cook off in January 2009.

Eh. I hope Jessica goes way more in depth than her ditzy act of “I don’t want anyone to know that!” But, as much as I wish it, I don’t think Jessica will ever go really hardcore “I’m going to shank that bitch” on anyone. She doesn’t have it in her. However, Jessica did tweet this little gem over the weekend: “You can’t love someone else to change them. Happiness comes from accepting who they are. It is our decision to REALLY know who we love.” Thank you, Dr. Chicken Of The Sea.
Here’s a preview of VH1’s The Price of Beauty. I can’t help but think that Jessica had a really great time filming this since she got to bring along her gay boyfriend Ken Paves. They really are adorable together:

I thought she alread responded with “i’m a boxer!” faaart.
Chicken of the sea should send douchebag Mayer a Thank you card. You’re hearing about her show thanks to Mayer’s comments
Yeah – I’m sure she went up 1 or 2 notches on the “hotty scale” now that everyone knows that she’s like a drug in bead…………She should STFU
I wish dt imbecile shld be ignored.
I dont really watch Oprah… I find her kind of boring. But I would be interested in watching this. John Mayer has given her such a great compliment. Well I would take it as one haha!
“When I think about Paris, I think about fashion and runway models.” See, already, having heard that quote, I don’t want to see this show. Talk about buying into the “price of beauty” hype. When I think about Paris, I think about the museums and cathedrals, walking in the beautiful neighbourhoods, buying crepes from a street vendor, visiting the local markets for incredible food. And when I think about “the price of beauty,” I certainly don’t think about conquering a ridiculous “fear” of walking a runway. That preview just proliferates what I already think about this vapid, B-list celebrity — that she’s superficial, obsessed with looks and clothes, and thinks she has something intelligent to say on the subject, when really, all she wants is to walk a runway like a size-0 model. Which is too bad, because maybe this is a really good show, but that preview just ruined it for me.
the show looks really interesting. Good for jessica!
Is so sad when your work is talking about your past relationship and about how you once gained a few pounds and people pointed it out.
It annoys me how Oprah plays dumb. “You were a size 4 and people were calling you fat?” the talk show host, 56, says in disbelief
Hey, Opes, had you not noticed society’s standard for women? Oh, that’s right… you have been yo-yo dieting your entire career because of it. You’ve done entire special episodes on body image and the media. Just have a fucking conversation, and stop treating your audience like nitwits.
Umm, no way Jessica was a size 4 in those horrible mom jeans. I know she’s no more than 5 feet tall, but come on …. why do all these “celebrities” “under size” themselves when anyone with two eyes can see they aren’t what they say they are?
@kate…it’s because the more expensive the clothing…the lower the size.
O is the worst. interviewer. Ever! Sitting through O & Jess, sounds like torture
I saw pics of her in that black garb in Paris on some runway and she looked like a heifer. No, you don’t have to be skinny to look good in clothes, but this nitwit doesn’t know that so she keeps trying to convince everyone she is skinny. Wish she and Papa Joe would just disappear together.
I also hate the way Oprah plays dumb. It’s insulting to the guest and the audience which is why I very rarely watch. Poor Jessica, the price of letting people know about your new show is having to answer questions about your douche of an ex-boyfriend.
If she doesn’t like people talking about her in a sexual way, why does she market herself as a sex bomb?
Oprah is terrible, but she in no way overcomes the shittyness that is Jay Leno. Anyway, I might tune in to find out if it was the sex or the farts that were napalm between the sheets.
She should do what Jennifer Aniston did and not say a word. By commenting on what Mayer said, she’s keeping the story alive and guaranteeing it gets another round of publicity.
Any woman who doesn’t want her bed business going national shouldn’t date John ‘Douchebag’ Mayer in the first place.
John “Egomaniac” Mayer has “Tourette of the Mouth”. He just can’t quit bragging and talking disrespectfully about his tropheys, his scalps. He trashes women and his CV is well documented on that matter.
He was right about one thing : he only dates stupid women and that trait is majorly shared by EVERY one of his exes.
DUMB, DUMBER (those who took him twice) & BIMBOS to the core, all of them !
#1; Big Oprah wasn’t PLAYING dumb.. she is a huge dumbass, making big bucks off lonely, homely, overweight women.
#2; John Meager got confused about who was sexual napalm; he actually was referring to Jessica’s Dad Joey the douchebag Simpson.
It was an anal encounter anyway, so it really doesn’t count between two ?men?.
