Jessica Simpson appeared on the Home Shopping Network (HSN) earlier this week.
She is celebrating the 10th anniversary of her fashion line The Jessica Simpson Collection. Fans who watched the HSN appearance tweeted that she seemed drunk. Jessica appeared loopy and slurred her words.
Insiders insisted that Jessica was a professional. And sober.
HSN president Bill Brand also defended Jessica.
“Of course she wasn’t drunk,” Bill told Entertainment Tonight. “[She was] a top-notch professional. She was here. She was thrilled to be here. I can tell you our team loved working with her.”
Insiders told TMZ the same. They insisted Jessica was NOT drunk. Instead, “giggling and slurring is just part of her personality that surfaces from time to time.”
According to sources Jessica’s ex-husband Nick Lachey heard about the incident and was “embarrassed.”
The source explains Nick’s reaction to the incident, “Nick says Jessica will most likely deny any reports that she was intoxicated. He’s just glad that he’s not in that chaotic mess of a relationship anymore!”
Here’s the video and the transcript of what Jessica said: “Ashlee is like the best at wearing gray. My sister. Like, she’s very rock ’n’ roll, but there’s something about a gray that’s, like, sexy. Maybe it’s her and her husband [Evan Ross], they share jeans, I have no idea. I don’t know. There’s just something hot about them.”
