Jessica Simpson is dangling from bookshelf ladders while shifting mass copies of her own memoir – and promoting her clothing line at the same time. The 40-year-old actress, singer, designer, and “Open Book” author sneaked in a quick story on her Instagram last night while promoting her $169 Irrena Boot – the chunky, high-heeled and plaid boot coming in three shades forms part of the “Dukes of Hazzard” star’s fall collection.
Jessica rarely makes a headline these days without her 100-pound weight loss factoring in. Check out how she’s kept it off below.
Scroll for the photo. Jessica, who dropped 100 pounds in 2019 after welcoming third baby Birdie Mae, had been photographed making loungewear sexy as she semi-seductively posed while climbing a wooden ladder adorning a wall-to-wall library of books.
The photo, checking massive ab boxes as the mom of three flaunted her tiny waist, came complete with Jessica in gray sweatpants with a matching cropped hoodie, her long blonde hair down, and a giant dose of sass from the red-and-black heeled booties.

The Jessica Simpson Style brand, turning a reported $1 billion in 2015 sales, is going stronger than ever, with 2020 seeing Jessica repeatedly asked where her stylish Instagram outfits are from – that brand gets tagged, though, with fans even complaining some products are out of stock.
It turns out Jessica has admitted people are surprised when they like her brand. “People are shocked that they like my brand,” she told CBS in 2017, adding: “Maybe ’cause it’s not that expensive? Or maybe because I was a cheesy pop star back in the day? I have no idea.”
Jessica has a lot on her plate right now, and not just with her three kids and clothing line. The star’s biggest 2020 headline-maker has been her “Open Book” memoir, with the book actually experiencing a sales spike as millions lead new lives from home.
“Open Book” chronicles everything from Jessica’s childhood sexual abuse and resulting alcohol and pills addiction, to her eventual recovery, plus her failed relationship with singer John Mayer. Jessica has even revealed she sent a copy of the book to her childhood sexual abuser.
Jessica made headlines earlier this month for dropping jaws with her poolside sunset yoga snap. Fans did call Photoshop, but the flawless exercise shot was showing one thing – Jessica has kept the weight off. In 2019, trainer Harley Pasternak told Hollywood Life about his client’s diet, revealing egg and egg-white breakfasts, plus Jessica walking up to 10,000 steps a day to shift the weight.
Jessica has since admitted her tipping the scales at 240 pounds was closer to 300 pounds. She also can’t eat eggs or cauliflower after consuming so much of them during her weight-loss journey – eggs are “cakes” only for the blonde.
