Jessica Simpson Used to Drink Before 8 A.M., Was Once Too Drunk to Dress Kids for Halloween

January 24, 2020



Jessica Simpson reveals in her upcoming memoir that her drinking once got so bad, she couldn't help get her kids ready for Halloween. According to People, Simpson confesses in Open Book that on Halloween 2017, "it was 7:30 in the morning and I’d already had a drink" while on her way to her daughter's school assembly alongside husband Eric Johnson. Later that day, the family was getting ready to host a Halloween party when she realized she was too drunk to get her kids into their costumes. “I was terrified of letting them see me in that shape,” the now-39-year-old Simpson writes. “I am ashamed to say that I don’t know who got them into their costumes that night.” The next day, she told her friends, “I need to stop. Something’s got to stop. And if it’s alcohol that’s doing this and making things worse, then I quit.” Open Book comes out on February 4.
