Jessica Simpson is showing off her pandemic cash cow and doing it amid backlash she faced for stripping down to a snakeskin bikini in the snow. The 40-year-old actress, singer, and “Open Book” author today updated her Instagram with promo for her 2020-released book, one that made Spring headlines last year for experiencing a spike in sales amid the global pandemic. Jessica, who has not addressed allegations she Photoshopped her bikini body, is keeping it strictly business. Check it out below.
Scroll for the snow bunny action. If you missed it, it came as promo for Jessica Simpson Style, a brand that turned $1 billion sales in 2015 and continues to go strong with its new “Fiend” fragrance, cosmetics, pandemic sweats, and Jessica’s 8-year-old daughter Maxwell designing bed linens.
The photo, showing the 100 pounds Jessica dropped in 2019, saw the “Dukes of Hazzard” star out in the snow, poolside, and highlighting her killer body in only a white open coat with a faux-fur hood, swimsuit, and booties.
Jessica, who wore sizzling snakeskin for her swimwear and posed with steam coming out the pool, was, as The Blast reported, subject to a tirade of backlash, with fans saying: “What’s going on with the leg here?” and another writing that it looked like Simpson had “two different legs.”
“Whoever edited this photo needs to be fired,” one fan wrote.
Jessica has moved past the storm, but she isn’t done keeping her career going. On Tuesday, the mom of three updated with her book cover and words of love.
Jessica’s photo today came with words from a reader saying: “I’ve never had strong feelings about Jessica Simpson (“besides generally rooting for her!”) and read her book this weekend and now I’m REALLY rooting for her. It’s not Shakespeare, but it’s a great one day read. Recommend!”
Jessica’s “Open Book” memoir chronicles her childhood sexual abuse, resulting pills and alcohol addiction, career, relationships, and motherhood. It’s also been topping book sales lists as the blonde continues her multi-faceted career. See her 100-pound weight loss below!
Jessica continues to make headlines for having dropped 100 pounds in just six months after welcoming third baby Birdie Mae. Jessica stated that her high weight was 240 pounds, but she’s since updated with a confess of having been in the “high two hundreds.”
2020, meanwhile, brought Simpson in the news as she inked a massive Amazon multimedia deal, one set to bring her 20s to the small screen via a much-anticipated series. If you missed Jessica sparking drowning concerns with a fishtail bikini, just scroll.
