The World According to Jessica Simpson

She’s the preacher’s daughter in real life, but on the cover of June’s Vanity Fair, Jessica Simpson is nothing short of a ‘50s pin-up. In her interview with the magazine, Simpson dishes on life with Dallas Quarterback Tony Romo, her religion, and how she doesn’t speak to ex-husband Nick Lachey. "I have not spoken to him in years,” Simpson says. And of the show that made her a star, Newlyweds, she says: “[I]n all honesty, I believe it did not affect our marriage. Because we enjoyed watching those episodes, and that will always be a time I cherish." But recently, Simpson’s gotten more than a little bit of heat about a curvaceous new bod, with which she has filled out a pair of what are definitively “mom jeans.” But according to Vanity Fair writer Rich Cohen, weight is strictly off-limits with Jess. “She didn’t want to talk about her weight, so, of course, that’s all I could think of—it gilded each question in my mind: What are you working on now [that you’re fat]? Do you see yourself as part of a class, with Christina and Britney [or are you too fat]? Do you feel that your relationship with Tony Romo has affected his performance as a quarterback [because you are fat]?"
