Excited to see Jessica Simpson on the series premiere of NBC‘s new design competition, Fashion Star? So is she, but not for the same reasons. In a recent conference call with reporters, the mom-to-be dished on everything from watching herself “thin” on TV, to why she still isn’t wearing maternity clothes, and whether or not a maternity line is really in the works for the Jessica Simpson Collection. Get the scoop after the jump!
We won’t be the only ones tuning in when Fashion Star makes its debut this March. Judge and mentor Jessica Simpson will also be in front of her television, watching the competition unfold…and admiring her body!
“I wasn’t pregnant when we shot it,” Simpson explains. “It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline. I’ll be like a blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin.”
Harsh! But at least we know that while she’s sitting there, she’ll be comfortable and stylish (yes, even in sweats) — two things she’s striving for in the creation of her own Jessica Simpson Collection maternity line.
“The point of launching a maternity line, for me, is to do something different,” says Jessica. “I’m not buying any maternity clothes. I’m wearing all clothes that come in bigger sizes. I really want to make a maternity line that’s comfortable, but really stylish for people, because I believe that we all deserve to feel good and look good.”
Fashion Star, featuring Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, John Varvotos, and host Elle Macpherson premieres March 13 at 9:30|8:30c on NBC.
