Jessica Simpson: Very pregnant, sexually 'unstoppable'

Jessica Simpson on "Fashion Star"

Jessica Simpson is obviously very pregnant, and now we know she's obviously very ... affectionate as well.

"I am definitely feeling 'intimate.' I'm kind of unstoppable at the moment!," the "Fashion Star" mentor said Tuesday on Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show.

As some might recall, the 2010 movie "Unstoppable" featured a runaway freight train loaded with hazardous materials, careening toward populated areas with a promise of certain explosive disaster. It also reminds us a bit of that 2010 Playboy interview in which singer-songwriter John Mayer famously referred to sex with Simpson as "sexual napalm."

And talk about explosive — 'cause Simpson had no problem doing so. 

"Like the big 'O' is like the biggest 'O' ever," she said. Good thing fiancé Eric Johnson is "always ready."

Ah, motherhood.

When it comes to the baby girl's name, by the way, Simpson is staying mum until the little one is born. With "weeks" left in the pregnancy that has seen her naked on the cover of Elle at 170 pounds, she said she's used to it, but "over it."

"I'm ready to carry her in my arms and not my stomach."

Jessica Simpson boldly goes where others have gone before: naked

Jessica-simpson-naked-elle

Jessica Simpson has posed naked on the April cover of Elle magazine, inspired by the pose made famous by Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair and a similar shot of Cindy Crawford on the cover of W.

And for when you're done staring at the "Fashion Star" mentor wearing no fashion at all, there's news as well: She and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a girl.

"I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!" Simpson told the mag. "Eric is so athletic. We're gonna have this athletic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping, 'cause all she's gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!"

(Notes to Jessica: You still have to get through the diapers and onesies first. And we probably shouldn't say anything about allowing oneself to be styled as the twin of a woman who's going through a significant life crisis.)

As Elle tells it, here's how the magazine shoot came together: "Though mom-to-be Jessica Simpson arrived at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on a crisp January morning looking quite the fashionista in a Roberto Cavalli wrapdress, Lanvin wedges, and an oversize YSL leather bag, it quickly became clear to everyone on set that Simpson’s burgeoning belly should take center stage for the principal shot." The singer-actress-fashionista was described as "enthusiastic," reportedly discussing her pregnancy cravings after "confidently posing au naturel."

There's also a version of the cover with Simpson wearing a red dress, presumably for the more skin-shy retailers.

Thoughts?

Jessica Simpson: Maternity clothes for thee, but not for she

Jessica Simpson hinted at her due dateJessica Simpson hasn't been wearing maternity clothes, she said Friday -- but she is eager to put maternity clothes on the market for the rest of the pregnant population.

"I haven't really gone to maternity clothes because I don't really love maternity stuff," the singer said while promoting the reality-competition series "Fashion Star" to television critics in Pasadena.

So while her big ol' bump suggests the next thing we'll see from Simpson is a baby, "The next thing you will see from the Jessica Simpson Collection is maternity," she said.

Simpson, who has her own clothing and shoe lines, will serve as a celebrity mentor along with Nicole Richie and John Varvatos on the show hosted by Elle Macpherson. Richie said that unlike "Project Runway," "Fashion Star" emphasizes the business and branding, Show Tracker reported.

And as for her due date for her baby boy or girl with Eric Johnson?

"We’re not saying the due date, but it's in the spring so it's coming."

Jessica Simpson is pregnant (on the record, not just in pics)

Jessica Simpson confirmed she's pregnant -- can mom jeans be far off?

Jessica Simpson is pregnant, the singer announced Monday on her website, bringing to an end weeks and weeks of willing suspension of disbelief by those who've been checking out her baby-bump pics online despite her lack of confirmation. 

"It's True! I'm going to be a mummy!" she wrote on her website, posting a picture of herself in Halloween-costume sexy-mummy garb, flaunting her not-so-secret mommy evidence. The !!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!! and link off Twitter very quickly crashed Jessica's website.

It'll be Simpson and fiancee Eric Johnson's first child. The singer and the former NFL player got engaged almost a year ago after dating for around six months, but her refusal to commit to a wedding date or other details got people talking in late September, though speculation that she might be pregnant had been going on for a while.

Johnson's divorce from his first wife was finalized a little over a year ago; Simpson's divorce from Nick Lachey was final in 2006, with Lachey remarrying in June, this time to Vanessa Minnillo.

Jessica Simpson isn't pregnant yet — unless you have $500,000

Jessica Simpson is reportedly asking for Angelina and Beyonce size money to confirm she's pregnant

We have no idea why Jessica Simpson is reportedly asking for $500,000 simply to confirm that she is, apparently, pregnant. But according to Page Six, that is indeed the case.

Simpson reportedly wants a half-million bucks to tell someone she's pregnant, and then that someone can publish the first photos of the baby. If you believe the New York Post, Simpson's stage dad, Joe, thinks his daughter's cash calf is worth all that. (Or, well, OK, maybe it's just a beach ball; we have no idea what's in Simpson's uterus, and Simpson's rep didn’t respond to a request for comment.)

For those of you unfamiliar with the celebrity photo-trafficking game, the idea of a star selling out her kid is not a new one. What is eye-opening is Simpson's reported asking fee.

In recent years, we've seen Nicole Richie sell the first photos of baby Harlow for a reported $1 million, and Christina Aguilera raked in a reported $2 million for splashing baby Max on the cover of People. And of course, baby Shiloh Jolie-Pitt earned her parents an estimated $4 million, with the proceeds going to charity. But nowadays, in the current economic climate, most stars know better than to ask for six figures for a photo, unless both parents are ridiculously famous, and both of those parents work constantly, and the baby's last name rhymes with Folie-Zitt.

In contrast, Simpson "doesn't have anything super relevant going on right now," points out 5W publicist Ronn Torossian, who is credited with negotiating photo sales on behalf of La Jolie. "And the father of the baby, Simpson's fiancé, is a retired former football player; nobody knows who he is.

"It's a badly kept secret that she's pregnant, and I would be amazed if she got that much money."

Do not confuse Simpson's current B-list status with a dwindling bank account. According to Women's Wear Daily, Simpson's name is licensed to 22 different kinds of products — products that earned $750 million in retail sales in 2010.

So, to sum up what we know so far: Simpson is both sort-of famous and obscenely wealthy, and she apparently wants to use her maybe-pregnancy to make a half-million bucks.

There is one other possible explanation for Simpson's reported asking price: She thinks she’s Beyoncé. Of the current crop of babymaking stars out there, we're told, Mrs. Jay-Z is the one celebrity who could still command top dollar if she so desired. Or, more like a million top dollars.

Simpson sisters Jessica and Ashlee to launch tween fashion line

Simpsonsisters Simpson sisters Jessica and Ashlee have announced a new tween clothing line, making fashion, not singing, the new family business.

Jessica has been raking in the big bucks -– she's set to reach $1 billion in sales by the end of 2011 -- since she started the Jessica Simpson Collection, featuring trendy clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories for women.

Now she's hoping to take over the tween market too, with Ashlee's help and "savvy rocker" style.

"Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand," Jessica tells Women's Wear Daily. "I'm excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today's tweens."

Ashlee, who split from her Fall Out Boy hubby, Pete Wentz, in February, adds, "My goal as co-creative director will be to design clothes that will help inspire young girls to express their personalities and creativity through fashion."

The younger set can start shopping for the sportswear, denim and activewear at Macy's and Lord & Taylor in a few months, just in time for back-to-school season.

Jennifer Lopez tops People magazine's 2011 Most Beautiful list

Jennifer Lopez named People's most beautiful woman Jennifer Lopez has made it to the top of People magazine's Most Beautiful list.

The New York-born "American Idol" judge beat out the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Eva Longoria.

"Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored," the 41-year-old singer told the magazine.

Jenny from the Block, whose current single "On the Floor" is No. 8 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart this week, is married to singer Marc Anthony and has twins with him. Her upcoming album titled "Love?" will be out in May. And, lest we forget, Lopez recently debuted a reworking of the classic "Venus" song in Gilette razor commercials and has attained the unique title of "Venus Global Ambassador."

"I don't want anybody thinking it's easy. It does take time and it's hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody's friend!" Lopez, she of the perfect posterior, said of her beauty regimen.

Other women who made People's list: singer Jessica Simpson, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, "Tangled" star Mandy Moore, "Desperate Housewives' " Dana Delany, Mrs. Tom Cruise Katie Holmes and "The Office's" Mindy Kalig and Ellie Kemper.

On the men's side, Zac Efron took top honors. The 23-year-old "High School Musical" alum took first place thanks to his abs, pecs and chest.

"I think it's important to remember to live in the moment and enjoy every day to the fullest," Efron told the magazine.

Efron, who also topped last year's list, is set to appear in Garry Marshall's star-studded "New Year's Eve."

Behind him were "Twilight" hottie Kellan Lutz and newly single Ryan Reynolds, People's sexiest man alive.

This year's Most Beautiful issue hits newsstands Friday.

Isabelle Caro, anorexic model, brought Jessica Simpson to tears

 

Isabelle Caro, the model whose death after a long struggle with anorexia was made public Wednesday, brought Jessica Simpson to tears on "The Price of Beauty" earlier this year.

Caro's longtime acting instructor, Daniele Dubreuil-Prevot, said she did not know the cause of death but that Caro "had been sick for a long time," referring to the actress-model's anorexia.

Caro was the focus of a 2007 shock ad campaign in print and on billboards during Fashion Week in Italy that showed her naked, vertebrae and facial bones protruding (see photo below), under the headline "No Anorexia." She said later that she weighed 59 pounds when the shots were taken. She said on "The Price of Beauty" that she was 86 pounds when a designer pressured her to lose weight to model.

"To us, what you're doing right now makes you one of the most beautiful people that we have ever seen," Simpson told a nearly skeletal Caro, referring to her anorexia-awareness work. "And we really just appreciate you sitting in front of us and having such powerful words. God bless you."

Simpson, who has been badgered about her weight, especially during the infamous "mom jeans" period in early 2009, closed the segment with an observation:

"I think it's important for women to know that the skinnier you are," she said, "doesn't make you more beautiful."

On the most recent cycle of "America's Next Top Model," the first girl Tyra Banks and company sent home, Anamaria Mirdita, was dinged in part for her scrawny body, which Banks said did not look healthy. Ann Ward, apparently naturally thin at 18 years old and 6 feet 2, drew some criticism related to her weight as well, after her "ANTM" win.

Caro died Nov. 17, at age 28, after returning to France from a job in Tokyo. Read her obituary here. For more on anorexia, check out Booster Shots' post on the model's battle with the eating disorder.

Candice Crawford -- sister of Chace Crawford -- engaged to Tony Romo [poll]

Candice Crawford and Tony Romo Candice Crawford and Tony Romo are engaged, upping the excitement in the "How Many Jessica Simpson Exes Can Get Engaged This Year" sweepstakes.

TV news host Crawford, 24, said yes to the 30-year-old Cowboys quarterback's proposal on Thursday in Dallas, where she was celebrating her birthday with family, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The future Mrs. Romo is sister to "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford and a former Miss Missouri.

Romo and Simpson broke up in July 2009. The singer's ex-husband, Nick Lachey, announced his engagement to Vanessa Minnillo on Nov. 4. Simpson, 31, got engaged a week later to former NFL player Eric Johnson.

Candice Crawford vs. Jessica Simpson So is John Mayer even dating anyone? You know, other than Giada De Laurentiis and Taylor Swift? If not, can we hire someone as a pinch-fiancée, just for the it-happens-in-threes fun of it? There's still time, John!

See a picture of the ring courtesy of KDAF-TV, Crawford's employer. In addition to co-hosting a lifestyle segment for the station, she covers nightlife and the high school sports scene, her bio says.

Think Tony Romo has a type? Check out the pics at left and let us know in the poll.

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are engaged

Jessica Simpson Singer and TV personality Jessica Simpson is engaged to Eric Johnson, the Yale-educated former NFL tight end she's been dating since May.

Joe Simpson, Jessica's dad, tweeted his congrats Sunday, saying, "So very happy for Jess and Eric. May they have a lifetime of joy and happiness."

"The Price of Beauty" host, 31, flashed her ruby-and-diamond engagement ring Saturday -- thankfully not the ring pictured in the September shot at right, from a Macy's visit -- at a Dillard's department store appearance in Kansas City, People magazine reported. Keeping with the retail theme, she told People that she'll be singing on a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, with her 30-year-old fiance and his family joining her.

Drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 2001, Johnson played for that team and later the New Orleans Saints before becoming a free agent in 2008. He became a free agent in his personal life more recently, separating from his wife of five years in October 2009, filing for divorce in February and finalizing it this September.

Simpson hasn't had the greatest luck with exes since her 2006 divorce from Nick Lachey, whose engagement to Vanessa Minnillo is still fresh on the tides of gossip. Earlier this year, she was famously called "sexual napalm" by singer John Mayer in an interview with Playboy magazine.

Simpson, who was famously dumped on her birthday in 2009 by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, spent this past July 10 with Johnson in Italy. Before meeting her new beau, however, Simpson told David Letterman in March that she still enjoyed looking at ex Romo's "cute butt in the outfit –- uniform. "

Could spice up those Sundays and Monday nights watching the game?
