Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jessica Simpson
10 Originally, she wanted to be an astronaut.
She was so determined to become an astronaut she even went to space camp. Unfortunately, she concluded this could not be the right career choice for her when she was at the space station. Why? Why? “I tried their ice cream, and it was like, ‘There’s no way.’ Obviously, the disgusting flavour of the dehydrated ice cream was just too much for her and she wanted to reconsider her career ambitions.
9 She was once addicted to chewing nicotine gum.
Jessica has never smoked and she has a strong passion for nicotine gum, Nicorette in particular. Yeah, first, how did she start eating nicotine gum? She said in an interview in 2010: “The first time I ever chewed a piece of Nicorette gum, it was offered to me by one of my close friends’ mother. I guess she thought she gave me a normal slice of gum. I was eating it in my mouth and it was like a band. It was like rockets, and ‘Oh my Goodness, I’m talking over a million miles an hour and I love this gum and what kind of gum is that? I gotta get this gum.’
8 She is also the author of a self-help book.
Jessica wrote the book I Do: Completing Your Dream Wedding by Jessica Simpson, which was published in 2004, after he married Nick Lachey in October 2002. (It was written with the aid of award-winning author Katina Z. Jones.) While some reviewers agree “this is a great wedding planning book, particularly when you’re on a tight budget,” others say the book is “nothing more than a wedding album with a couple of notes thrown in.”
7 Jessica was in the marching band.
Jessica ‘s mom once revealed that Jessica was playing the saxophone in middle school for the three years she was there. Her mom also said Jessica was fond of doing The Simpsons’ ‘Do the Bartman’ as Ashley danced.
6 She came close to starring in Coyote Ugly.
The film’s directors and producers confirmed in a 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter that they had considered Jessica for the role that ultimately went to Piper Perabo. The year was 2000, though, and Jessica had very little experience with acting so they decided to go in a different direction.
5 Jessica only washes her hair two or three times a month.
You can’t even argue Jessica has perfectly perfect hair, which is why you would be shocked to hear she barely washes her hair. There is of course a valid explanation for that. The natural oil that accumulates in dirty hair affects the capacities and shape of the hair , making it simpler to handle and design, according to some stylists.
4 She is a big supporter of the nonprofit Operation Smile.
In 2003, Jessica was first named ambassador for Operation Smile. In addition to contributing her own funds to the cause, she has appeared at fundraisers and has toured with the charity, raising awareness for children with facial deformities. She also went on a 2005 mission trip to Nakuru, Kenya, where she was introduced to an 8-month-old baby girl named Boki, who was due to undergo reconstructive facial surgery. Boki ‘s mother was frightened, but in reality, it was Jessica who carried the baby into the operating room and hugged her while anaesthesia was administered.
3 She performed at the 54th Presidential Inaugural Opening Celebration in 2001.
Jessica, a Republican and fellow Texan, was excited to appear at his inauguration when George W. Bush was sworn in as the 43rd U.S. President. (Interestingly, other performers who took to the stage included Lyle Lovett and Destiny ‘s Child.) Jessica topped off the evening singing “I Think I’m in Love with You,” during which she replaced the word “boy” with “George.”
2 She met her husband on a blind date.
Jessica’s divorce had been settled for some time in 2010, and she had been dating several guys like Tony Romo and John Mayer without any apparent success. This is presumably why she decided that friends Bret and Lauren Harrison will set up her. On 21 May 2010, all four went out for dinner. Jessica and Eric were attracted to each other instantly and have been together ever since. Naturally, the two are now Maxwell and Ace ‘s parents and eventually married on July 5, 2014.
1 Her nickname is Angela.
Jessica went shopping with her hairdresser and BFF Ken Paves in a local supermarket. It didn’t take long for people to start finding out and asking if Jessica Simpson was actually that. Ken kept naming her “Angela” in an attempt to make people believe it wasn’t her, in an effort to push people in the opposite direction. It had worked, obviously.
