Jessica Simpson, 38, has been an Open Book lately… literally. She’s the name on everybody’s lips, thanks to her memoir (called Open Book) that will officially come out on February 4.
Excerpts from the book have already been released, which include the “Public Affair” singer opening up about her battles with alcohol. She hit rock bottom in October of 2017 during an incident on Halloween where she “zoned out” after having a drink very early that morning. The situation was so bad that she wasn’t in any state to help her husband, Eric Johnson, 40, get their kids Maxwell, 7, and Ace, 6, ready for the big holiday.
“I was terrified of letting them see me in that shape,” she wrote. “I am ashamed to say that I don’t know who got them into their costumes that night.”
A report obtained even more excerpts from Open Book on Saturday, January 25, that further delves into Jessica talking about the period she started getting sober and how her football playing beau helped her out.
“Eric gave up drinking the second I did,” she says. “He said, ‘I’ll do it with you, babe.’ It was like no biggie and he hasn’t gone back or looked back.”
