Back of Jessica Has Hugs From Eric and Support From Her Pals to Launch Her New Designs Jessica Simpson played hostess to her friends and family last night in NYC as she showed off new designs from her Jessica Simpson Collection. Her pals like CaCee Cobb and sister Ashlee were among those who were styled in items from the latest installment of her line, and the ladies all showed off their styles while dancing to the tunes of the "best DJ ever," Pete Wentz. Tina Simpson was there as well, but Jess stayed close to her boyfriend, Eric Johnson, whenever she was able to break free of her official duties. Eric hung close to Pete while Jess mingled with editors and reporters, but he was happy to provide some adorable PDA for a photo. Jessica spoke with us about how her style has evolved over the years from her pleather onstage costumes to her current, more polished all-American look, and she also revealed her serious weakness for shoes — she just emptied her closest of 21 boxes worth of stuff, but not one pair of shoes was among the items she passed on to friends! Stay tuned for more from Jess, as well as CaCee, Ashlee, and more, on PopSugar Rush below.

No wonder american little girls have self esteem issues and end up looking eitheir like thay have aids or like complete swollen ballons. You must think sandre bullock is fat too because we all know she is not a size either, she has a very healthy body the same fro jessica I think her problem is that she has a big chest and skinny legs, it's hard to find flattering clothes and she CANNOT DRESS to save her life which doesn't help imo! Glamorme 6 years Ashlee is a bitch. Don't wear sky high heels and a figure flaunting outfit next to your fat sister! Jess is trying so hard and her outfit is very flattering but you can tell she's never gonna be a size 2 ever again.
