Jessica Simpson is celebrating a major win and she’s likely to get even richer in the process. The 40-year-old actress, singer, and “Open Book” author, in the news last year as sales of her 2020-released memoir spiked during the global pandemic, today updated her Instagram with an update on the headline-making book, with the “Dukes of Hazzard” star both gushing over the support she’s received since publishing and offering an announcement. Jessica’s Tuesday post is set to bring something new for fans. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. Jessica, joined in seeing a sales spike by “Southbound” singer Carrie Underwood and her “Find Your Path” book, made her update today a mash-up from her massive pre-pandemic book tour. The mom of three shared footage of herself crossing the U.S., in airports with her kids, and being snapped arriving at events, also showing off the 100 pounds she dropped in 2019.
The message from Simpson was that “Open Book” is today releasing its paperback edition, with a “new personal introduction” added, complete with some “personal” journey entries.
Taking to her caption, the Jessica Simpson Style founder opened: “A little over a year ago, I released my memoir Open Book. I got to go out on the road to talk about my story and I was humbled that so many of you bravely shared your struggles and triumphs with me and trusted that I would understand.”
Jessica, whose book details her childhood sexual abuse, resulting pills addiction and alcohol battles, plus her eventual recovery, told fans their support meant more “than you can ever know.” See her weight loss after the video.
The video, which also saw copies of Jessica’s book on store shelves, came with the star adding:
“Writing has been my haven, the place to be the most raw and honest version of myself. Since the book has been out in the world, we have all been handed unexpected challenges but here we are- blessed with today, inside out, still moving forward, still in this together.”
“You are a beautiful soul,” a fan quickly replied. See her stunning 100-pound weight loss below.
Jessica remains a talking point for having shed 100 pounds in just six months after welcoming 2-year-old daughter Birdie Mae in 2019. Simpson was called “way too skinny” in her birthday selfie last year, but the star has shared a healthy appetite, even telling Hollywood Life that she treats herself to mac and cheese.
Jessica also continues to promote her hugely-popular Jessica Simpson Style clothing brand, now retailing a pandemic-friendly self-care collection, plus its “Fiend” fragrance. Scroll for Jessica back in her Daisy Dukes!
