Jessica Simpson: "At a Great Place" in Her Life

by at . Comments

Yeah, right.

That's the company line, although the interview with Jessica Simpson in the September issue of Glamour was conducted before Tony Romo dumped her. Ouch!

Even then, she lamented her lifelong struggles with body image issues.

"When I was young, I would look at magazines and feel a lot of pressure," the alleged singer lamented. "As a child of 12, I would write things in my journal like, 'I am lying here and all I can think about is my stomach hanging over my underwear.'"

"That disturbs me even today! I was always disconnected from myself; there was this idea of perfection I couldn't ever get to. But all women struggle with insecurity, and everybody has something we don't like about ourselves."

After those "fat Jessica Simpson pictures" from earlier this year drew criticism, the star is psyched to host her own VH1 reality show, The Price of Beauty, which tracks her journey around the world in search of what people find beautiful and why.

"No matter how much money you spend - with all the products, the diets, the plastic surgery - in the end, women need to love themselves. There is no 'perfect' you," says Simpson, who admits getting Restylane to make her lips plumper.

She credits ex Tony Romo with helping her become more comfortable in her own skin: "Tony never ever places judgment," she says of her QB ex.

"You can just relax and feel beautiful. He's just that type of person."

While she did the interview before her split with Romo, who may or may not be banging Natalie Smith right now, she says, "If this article comes out and we're not together, I'd still love Tony, and he'd still be a huge part of who I am today."

Simpson also addresses her 2006 divorce from Nick Lachey.

"It was hard to imagine I would ever walk down the aisle again," she says.

"It was like a death in the family: You go through the mourning stage, then the rebellion, and then all of a sudden you have to find life by yourself."

"Once you do that, you feel complete - and that's the only time you can truly fall in love again, and give yourself over completely to another person."

Although her first marriage failed, says she will "definitely" wed again.

"I loved everything about marriage," she tells Glamour.

"I loved having a companion to wake up with and have barbecues with. But things happen and people grow apart. I don't really ever talk about the divorce."

"It was a heart-wrenching thing to go through. It's a very personal thing."

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
