Jessica Simpson: Has Celebrity Gossip Gone Too Far?
Us Weekly is breathlessly reporting that Jessica Simpson broke wind. Seriously.
Is this the fart heard around the world? ‘Cause my mind is reeling over the fact the US Weekly is reporting that Jessica Simpson broke wind during a recent business meeting.
The magazine claims – exclusively: “While one of the executives was speaking in a room full of five people, Jessica let out a very loud fart,” says the insider. It then goes on to say that “It wasn’t Simpson’s first brush with public flatulence” and details her love of Dutch ovens.
I figure this is just another way of Us confirming their claim that Stars are Just Like Us!
Now, we here at BettyConfidential report on celebrity news, which some of you might claim is a case of the pot calling the kettle black, but in my time here, I am happy to report that we haven’t ever published a story in which we announce that stars sometimes get flatulent. Have I pondered whether Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are splitting, sure. Do I wonder about their toilet habits? Nope. Would I want to know about them? Hell, no.
Cause that’s the distinction I make about celeb gossip. I guess it’s the same as what I would want to know about friends. Are my pals Greg and Kayla having trouble in their relationship? How did Jenny lose the baby weight so fast? And wow, Emily looks like she’s lost a ton of weight, how did she do it? These are questions that you would sit around with your friends and talk about. OK, I’m not friends with Josh Duhamel and Fergie, but you get my drift.
