Jessica Simpson broke down in tears, as she relived the painful collapse of her marriage to Nick Lachey for her new MTV special, ‘Jessica Simpson: A Public Affair’, which aired last night.
“At this moment in my life, I just want to be surrounded by something that brings out the positivity that I know that I have in my life,” Simspon said when asked about her future plans. “So I have this idea, to do this book, this photography book, with every picture explained to you guys why I took the picture, what I was feeling when I took the picture and what I see after I take the picture. It’s kind of like a journal but it gives you more because you can actually see and figure it out.”
Asked what she felt was her biggest accomplishment to date, the singer responded, “When I was younger, I always dreamt of being able to be on stage and hopefully offering you guys something from my soul and my heart. I knew that that was what I was supposed to do, so the fact that you guys are here is an accomplishment. You guys are amazing fans and I hope that there’s more out there in life that need to be touched and need to feel what I know I have to give, so you guys give me confidence, and that to me is an accomplishment.”
