Fashion mogul Jessica Simpson opened up to Matt Lauer about being married to her best friend Eric Johnson and apparently she just can’t get enough of him. They got married in July and she’s totally and completely smitten.
She said, “I just think we’re a little bit more addicted to each other. I just think there is a level of love that has reached the highest of high.”
When asked how she knew that he was the one, she revealed, “Well, Eric and I have both been married before, so we took our time finding the right person. When we found each other, we knew it had to be forever.”
On why they waited so long to tie the knot, she told the talk show host, “We were engaged and then I got pregnant. Oops.”
As you may know, Jessica is a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers and lost a lot of weight before and after her second pregnancy. Matt asked her if she felt that she was held to a different, somewhat unfair standard because she had been “known as a sex symbol for so long.”
She said in response, “I don’t think that I wasn’t still a sex symbol. To my husband I was extremely sexy. It wasn’t my priority to please the public and make them feel like I’m supposed to be looking like I did when I was 24.”
She added that she was hurt about some of the comments she received during her weight struggles. She said, “I’m not saying they didn’t hurt. I’m a woman. I have feelings, hormones. I got emotional about it at times. But if anything, I just wanted to be a champion for other women and say, ‘We can do this.'”
