Even Ellen Was at A Loss For Words During This Jessica Simpson Interview

It takes a lot for Ellen DeGeneres to be at a loss for words, but between the uncomfortable laughter and the peculiar anecdotes, Jessica Simpson's appearance on The Ellen Show has fans wondering what was going on with the singer.

The 36-year-old mother of 2 frequently slurred her words and make cringe-worthy remarks about her relationships and family life in the 5-minute interview.

We all know that she perfected the "dumb blonde" persona back in the early 2000s, but this interview took it to a whole new level.

She set the tone for the interview noting how she wasn't pregnant during this appearance like she was the last 2 times she was on the show.

"Very exciting! I'm not pregnant on your show. Oh gesh, no. We have an IUD, it's ... nothing gonna get in that uterus."

From there, she talked about her daughter's recent mermaid-themed birthday party that had entertainers swimming in the backyard pool dressed as mermaids.

"Silicone tails," she announced out of nowhere. "They had ... manhandlers. It's not called manhandlers ... No ... they had to be carried if they had to pee ... cos they can't pee on my children in the pool. They pick "˜em up, and carry "˜em ... It's a, it's a business."

Changing gears, Ellen asked her how long she has been with her husband. Her response should have been simple, however it was far from it.

"Seven years now. Well, coming on seven years. Well actually, seven. It's a long time. I don't know if I've ever had a seven-year relationship. Other than with a woman. Well, not that kind."

Can you feel the tension in the room, yet?

She continues to add that it's the longest relationship she has had- besides her friendships with her girlfriends.

Together with her husband, Eric Johnson, they have 2 kids Maxwell and Ace.


After some more idol chit-chat Ellen commented how Simpson was nw the head of a billion-dollar fashion empire.

"Isn't it awesome? It can happen for anybody!" exclaimed Simpson.

Continuing the conversation they revert to her music career.

"I have about 38, so maybe 36, or 39 [songs]" said Simpson.

"You DON'T have 38 songs. I doubt it," said Ellen, clearly losing patience by this point.

"We're going to take a break."


This isn't the first time Jessica Simpson has made a questionable TV appearance. In 2015 she surprised views during a Home Shopping Network slot where she appeared to be incoherent on air.

When talking about a pair of grey jeans from her line, she rambled, "Ashlee is like the best at wearing grey ... my sister ... Like, she's very rock'n'roll, but there's something about a grey ... that's like ... sexy."  

What do you think of her odd behavior?
