Okay, okay--the poor young lady tooted:
A source tells Us Weekly that Jessica Simpson had a, ahem, windy moment during a business meeting for her denim line in late January. "While one of the executives was speaking in a room full of five people, Jessica let out a very loud fart," says the insider.
"Her mother [Tina Simpson] was there, and it prompted her to turn around and yell, 'Jessica!' The tension was extreme. No one knew what to say."
It wasn't Simpson's first brush with public flatulence: She famously cut loose on an episode of Newlyweds, telling then-husband Nick Lachey, "You love my stinky ass," and professed her fondness for between-the-sheets poots (a.k.a. Dutch ovens) to a radio station in 2008.
There's way too much information packed into that little piece, but all I can say is this--everyone passes wind. The only way it becomes a story is when someone wants to take a shot at someone for being bloated and uncouth. And this poor young lady deserves better.
Well, perhaps she has this one coming to her. After this? We can give her a pass.
