January 29th, 2020 under Jessica Simpson, Kathie Lee and Hoda

Jessica Simpson has a memoir coming out, and in it, she gets real about her life. This morning she spoke to Hoda Kotb on Today about parts of her book that are not easy to read.

The singer was sexually abused by a family friend for six years starting when she was just 6 years old. She knew it was wrong, but she did not know how to tell anyone about it. One day she told her parents, and she never had to go back to his house again. She also says her parents did not know how to talk to her about it.

When she was teenager, she was offered a record deal. They told to lose 15 pounds and that order started her 20-year addiction diet pills.

Also, when she was a teenager, she met Nick Lachey. As soon as she saw him, she knew he was going to be her husband. Together they were good. Yet, when their careers were separate, they were not as good. Her getting all the attention was hard on their marriage. When she couldn’t fake it anymore, they got divorced.

Eventually, she met Eric Johnson, the man of her dreams, and they have three kids together. They looked happy, but she was always drinking. In photos,, it appeared that everything was perfect and that is what she wanted us to see. When the cameras were not flashing, she had no idea what was going on.

Then on Halloween in 2017, she knew she had to stop. She had no idea who got her kids ready for Halloween, and she wanted to be present as a mom. She stopped drinking, went to therapy and got her life back on track. Or maybe you can say for the first time in her life.

Now, she is sober, an author, and she is ready to get back to what she does best. That is singing. She will have new music coming out along with the book. Open book comes out on Febraury 4th.
