Whoa, Jessica Simpson!
On Thursday, the fashion mogul appeared on CNBC’s Closing Bell. She was making an appearance on the business news show in honor of the 10th anniversary of her crazy successful fashion line.
And when asked by anchor Kelly Evans about her greatest financial mistake, Simpson had a hilarious, enigmatic and pretty loaded answer.
She replied, “The biggest money mistake? I don’t know. For some reason I thought of my first marriage!” Simpson and Evans had a chuckle and the news anchor responded, “That’s actually a common answer, believe it or not.”
And while we don’t hear any more from Simpson to know exactly what she was talking about, we do know that divorce can be pretty bad for one’s financial health.
Simpson’s first marriage, which occurred back in 2002 was, of course, to Nick Lachey. The two shared an MTV reality TV show, Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, which launched the pair into stardom from their smoldering young music careers. And since their divorce in 2006, both have moved on to remarry and now have children with their current spouses.
But what was she alluding to? Inquiring minds want to know, and by that I mean me.
Was it just a costly divorce? Were there prenup stipulations that cost Simpson a bundle of cash? Was she just thinking of her biggest mistake in general and not her biggest financial mistake? So many questions. So many questions!
While Lachey and Simpson are not necessarily buddy-buddy, they didn’t part enemies, either. Lachey told Jenny McCarthy he didn’t have contact with his ex, saying, “I wouldn’t say it’s friends and I wouldn’t say it’s enemies — there is just no contact. We both moved on with our lives. It’s not animosity, it’s not friendship, it’s just kind of nothing.”
