Jessica Simpson’s Strange Appearance On HSN Goes Viral; Was Simpson Drunk On Live TV?
Jessica Simpson has yet to comment on her strange, viral appearance on HSN Thursday night, that had many wondering whether the singer was drunk on live television.
Was Jessica Simpson Drunk During Her HSN Appearance?
Simpson made headlines this week after she appeared on the Home Shopping Network Thursday night to promote her Jessica Simpson 10th Anniversary Collection. The singer and designer appeared slightly off throughout her 2-hour appearance, at one point seemingly slurring her words and making incoherent sentences.
The most buzzed about moment came when Simpson, alongside her mother, Tina Simpson, attempted to describe her “Kiss Me” Super Skinny Gray Jeans.
“Ashlee [Simpson] is like the best at wearing gray. My sister… Like, she’s very rock ‘n’ roll, but there’s something about a gray that’s like…sexy. Maybe it’s her and her husband, they share jeans… I have no idea…I don’t know. There’s just something hot about them,” Simpson said, awkwardly.
Viewers were quick to comment on Simpson’s strange appearance, with many suggesting she was tipsy on Twitter.
Want an adventure: #JessicaonHSN – I’m going to say Jessica Simpson is D-RUNK. And now, wasn’t watching until I was alerted to it. WOW.

While the consensus among viewers may have been that Simpson was at least a little tipsy during her appearance on HSN, it is true that Simpson is known for being a bit wacky and goofy in real life — it’s what made The Newlyweds, the reality series she starred in with her then-husband Nick Lachey, so hilariously entertaining.
Simpson has yet to comment on the strange appearance, but HSN released a statement declaring the appearance a total success. “It was fun to have Jessica make her HSN debut with her mother Tina last night. We were happy to host them and thrilled with the way customers responded to the collection,” the network said in a statement.
The public may be talking more about whether or not Simpson was, in fact, under the influence on television, but Simpson is far from worried — her collection sold out during her appearance.
