We couldn’t quite believe what we were reading, so we had to share: Simpson’s flatulence made the cover of the Feb. 8 US Weekly.
The cover promoted the story with the headline “Jessica’s Big Oops!,” and the headline on the story inside the magazine said “Jessica Simpson Makes A Stink.” We wonder if a fellow Medill graduate wrote that gem.
The story says that Simpson, during a business meeting on her denim line in a room with five executives, “let out a very loud fart.”
Her mother apparently chastised Simpson in front of everyone, and “the tension was extreme,” a US Weekly mole said.
US Weekly also fills us in on the Simpson flatulence back-story. On the MTV show that made her and then-husband Nick Lachey famous, “Newlyweds,” Simpson told him, “You love my stinky ass.”
That’s a nice Valentine’s Day story for you. It has all the makings of a Hallmark Card.
