Jessica Ann Simpson is an American singer, actress and entrepreneur, and is nearly as famous as apple pie.
Jessica Simpson grew up in Richardson, Texas, the daughter of a youth minister. As a girl, she auditioned for “The All New Mickey Mouse Club,” but never landed a gig. She said, “I wanted to give up, but my family kept me going.”
In junior high, she was a cheerleader and part of the co-ed choir. Though she never graduated from high school (due to dropping out because of her burgeoning career), she earned a GED. She did, however, return to attend her prom.
In church, Jessica sang, which attracted an independent producer. Although the independent label went bust, her demo landed at Columbia Records. Also helping was the fact that Jessica had toured on the Christian Youth Conference circuit. Her first album, “Sweet Kisses” was a Christian album, released when she was 14. She added, “I had doors slammed in my face as a 14-year-old because my boobs were too big.” Her second album was “Irresistible,” where she posed on the cover with a bare midriff.

But it was her reality show “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica” that bolted her to fame. That, and her daisy dukes, as well as her racy Carl’s Jrs ad.
In 2004, she was #1 on the Maxim Top 100 Hot List, and was also voted #1 for VH1’s Top Ten Best Bodies. In 2005, she was named People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People.
About her ditzy persona, Jessica Simpson said, “Dumb is just not knowing. Ditzy is having the courage to ask! Ditzy is not editing yourself.”
She is famous for keeping her virginity until marriage. However, after her divorce she dated a few men, including Tony Romo, and John Mayer who called her “sexual napalm.”

Her nickname is “Jess,” as well as “Rabbit” because of her prominent teeth. “I can make the best bunny face. No one can stay mad at me when I do the bunny face.” Her career has been managed by her father, Joe - the same Joe who infamously said, “Jessica never tries to be sexy…she’s got double D’s! You can’t cover those suckers up!”
Jessica Simpson has appeared on the show “Fashion Star,” “The Price of Beauty,” “The Love Guru” and “Blonde Ambition,” among other projects.
Aside from acting and singing, she is wealthy from her success in clothing and cosmetics.
Jessica Simpson has two children with NFL player Eric Johnson. They live in Los Angeles.
