I know, America. Between Kris and Kim’s divorce and this announcement, today’s celebrity news is Obvs 101. But Jessica Simpson deserves points for creativity. She knows that we know. But she also knows that we know that nothing’s real until she tweets it or sells the story to a magazine. She opted for tweeting “!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!” with a link to her BeautyMint site, where she posted a photo of her holding her belly and looking strangely hot as a mummy in lace with the caption, “It’s true — I am going to be a mummy.”
Not exactly the classy Beyoncé/VMA red-carpet pose, but we’ll take it. And every time JSimps shows she has a sense of humor about herself, we want to hug her. So does the rest of the world, apparently, because her website crashed from the onslaught of viewers probably not rushing to buy her skincare line. (This is an odd sales tactic: I wanted to see pictures of your baby bump, but now that I’m here, I DO want to know how you can make my fine lines disappear!) Maybe sales of lotions will make up for her apparently not getting that $500,000 magazine deal?
