Jessica looks like the buxom blonde we fell in love with on The Newlyweds in this month's March issue of Elle. In the article, Jessica talks about what it was like going from a media darling to a tabloid target and how a film influenced her decision to say goodbye to Nick. Here's more:
"The [media] build you up to tear you down thing. But in a lot of ways I think I brought that on myself because I did a reality show. I let people in on who I am and how I react to my husband," Simpson says. "That's a big deal. Celebrities don't do that. So I think they brought me down just because I stopped talking and because I have not spoken – and will not speak – about my divorce. And I think people feel like I owe them my reality right now."
She will say, though, that she thought there was hope for her marriage up until a few days before she and Lachey announced their split. So what changed? "I watched The Notebook on a plane home to Waco to be with my grandparents," she says. "It's a great love story."
The movie itself, she says, was "not what sealed it. I just figured out the statement. It was about that moment of desperation. I needed to breathe."
After many months of worrying about Jess, it's clear she has become grounded again. Besides, now that she and John have come out of hiding she can stop getting constantly asked about Nick and get used to getting asked about John. For more pics and the article just
