Oops, She Did It Again: Singer and QVC Vendor Jessica Simpson’s Flatulence Problem Makes The Cover Of US Weekly

February 6, 2010

Simpson's gassy moment made the cover of US Weekly

We swear we don’t buy celeb gossip rags, but we do read them at the gym. So while we were on the elliptical machine at 7:15 a.m. this Saturday morning, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw a more-information-than-we-want-to-know story on QVC vendor and singer Jessica Simpson.

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.
