Jessica Simpson Takes The Plunge After Crushing Us With News She'll Never Do Reality TV Again

She is returning to music, though. Small consolation.

Jessica Simpson is crushing our souls this week with the news she has no plans to return to her reality roots.  

The tragic revelation came during an interview on Tuesday with "Today" show co-host Savannah Guthrie while discussing her insanely successful fashion brand. 

"No, no, no. That’s very rearview. I’m very open with fans or just in the media, but having a camera on me at all times -- I mean, we all know I probably stick my foot in my mouth a little bit too much," the 35-year-old said when asked if she'd do another reality show. "Now that I’m a mom, I probably have to keep it together a little bit better.”

Of course, Simpson's reality TV days seem like they were part of another life. Her old show "Newlyweds" with ex-husband Nick Lachey aired on MTV from 2003 until 2005 and captured important moments in pop culture history, including Simpson's repeated confusion involving items of food. She divorced Lachey the same year the show ended. These days she's married to former NFL player Eric Johnson, with whom she has two ridiculously adorable children. 

So if you can peel yourself off the floor from the despair of knowing Simpson's comedic genius will likely not return to TV, take solace in the fact that she's getting ready to return to music. 

"That's how I started; [singing has] always [been] one of my biggest passions in the world," she said during her appearance on "Today." "I love to use my voice."

After dropping these bombshells, she showed up to the 10th anniversary celebration of the Jessica Simpson Collection in New York City on Wednesday, where she no doubt turned heads. Simpson stunned in an a bodysuit with a sheer, plunging neckline and high-waisted navy pants.
