Anyone who watched the Jessica Simpson special presentation on HSN Thursday night most likely dropped their jaw as she slurred her words and had a bit of trouble steadying herself in her high heels. It appeared that the host of the show was aware Jessica was under the influence and she handled it like a pro.
As Fox News reports September 18, Jessica Simpson and her mother were on the Home Shopping Network promoting and celebrating her new 10th anniversary line of fashion. Unfortunately for live TV it looked as if Jessica may have celebrated a bit too much.
Viewers took to the social media sites to see if anyone else had noticed what they were seeing, which appeared to be an inebriated Simpson. On a few occasions she stepped out of view of the cameras and left her mom to handle the presentation of her fashions. Mom was also a bit giddy at times on the show.
US Magazine called her appearance “bizarre,” and they report she “slurred” her words and seemed somewhat “dizzy.” Did the two stop off for drinks on the way to this show? It didn’t take long for viewers to pickup on Simpson’s state as the social media sites lit up.
Kristina@ heartstring tweeted: Is anyone else watching Jessica Simpson on HSN? Is she wasted?” Another view saw this as something really funny, as Ashley Sanford tweeted: “Jessica Simpson is wasted on HSN , HILARIOUS.”
Kat Callaghan tweeted: “Drunk? High? Not sure what… but SOMETHING is up with Jessica Simpson.” That was an understatement, Jessica appeared to be three sheets to the wind as she interrupted the host over and over again.
At one point Simpson told a story about her sister Ashley’s husband, Evan Ross, and how he shared her sister’s clothes. This is not something you would expect Simpson to ordinarily say.
Instead of straightening out as time went on, she appeared to get worse. She picked up her own pair of purple suede shoes and said she wanted a pair and went on and on about the shoe.
At the same time her mother picked up a sparkling shoe and she too said she wanted a pair. Don’t these ladies manufacture this stuff? Why wouldn’t they just take the shoes home with them?
Drunk or sober, Simpson’s line sold-out of a lot of items last night. Check out Simpson in the above video and make your own decision, was she straight or under the influence?
For many who waited to see Jessica on the show last night, it was a bit disappointing to see how little she must value being on the HSN by showing up in that state. It was also sad to see the young mother acting so bizarre.
