Jessica Simpson went from a famous singer to being ridiculed for being so clueless to getting fat to performing at county fairs to now owning a $1 billion per year retail empire.
That was to give a quick backstory as to why she was interviewed by CNBC’s Kelly Evans about her Jessica Simpson Collection which started with shoes but now comprises over 30 different products. Simpson says she knows what women want and that when she’s at an approval meeting she thinks of what she’d want her nana to wear and what her kid would look cute in.
Anyway, back to the point. Evans asked Simpson what her biggest money mistakes were. Jessica, taking a moment to think, said, “I don’t know. For some reason I thought of my first marriage!”
Wow. I wonder why everyone in that room weren’t screaming in pain with their hands over their ears. The sound of shots fired in there would have been deafening.
Well this is rude!
Jessica Simpson went on CNBC on Thursday evening to talk to the financial folks on the business-based show Closing Bell -- and mainly, the talk was supposed to be about the Jessica Simpson Collection, which is raking in about $1 billion (!) in yearly sales.
Only... the pop star-turned-movie star also got in some shots at ex-hubby Nick Lachey, contending her first marriage was her biggest mistake!
The host of Closing Bell, Kelly Evans, was asking Simpson about her biggest regrets with money, when the singer/actress said:
"The biggest money mistakes? I don't know. For some reason I thought of my first marriage!"
Ouch! Lachey and Simpson were of course married from 2002 to 2006, and appeared on the popular reality show Newlyweds together.
Now, with Lachey married to Vanessa Minnillo since 2011, and Simpson wed to Eric Johnson since 2014, it all may be water under a bridge... but Jessica just had to get that one shot in there!
Here's thinkin' of ya, Nick!

N*Sync! Backstreet Boys! 98 Degrees! These 90s boy bands defined a decade, but sadly, none of them stood the test of time. (Okay, so *technically* the Backstreet Boys have never broken up and have been together for 22 years. Technically.)
While reboots and reunion tours abound among the former imaginary flames of teenage girls everywhere.
(Seriously. Don't even pretend you didn't dream of marrying Justin Timberlake. Or that a tiny part of your once-teenage heart didn't die the day he married Jessica Biel.)
While some members rose to fame, others felt their stars fall rapidly from the sky, and we all watched it happen. Check out this gallery to find out where these 90s boy band members are now!
1. Justin Timberlake
2. Chris Kirkpatrick
3. Joey Fatone
4. Lance Bass
5. JC Chasez

Aw, they grow up so fast!
“It’s crazy that she’s halfway through her time in your house,” brother Nick Lachey, 41, said to Drew, 38.
He responded: “Yeah, I don’t want to talk about it.”
Drew admits that Isabella, 9, is getting older — and dating will soon be just around the corner. Luckily, their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, is a small enough city where “everybody knows each other,” so he has already talked to parents of the boys in her grade.
“They know,” he jokes. “They’ve already been warned. [I’m going to] kill somebody [when she starts dating].”
But the banter between the two brothers doesn’t stop there. “My wife will be like, ‘No, you’re being the weird guy,’ ” Drew says.
“Isabella will be like, ‘Daddy, you’re the reason no one will take me to prom. Everybody’s scared of Daddy,’ ” quips Nick, who is dad to daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 7 months, and son Camden John, 2½.
Despite his tough-guy tactics, Drew admits he has his daughter’s best interests at heart.
“I’ll be the reason that boys love her for her,” explains Drew, who calls Isabella “strong, very independent and very bull-headed.”
These days, Isabella splits her time between the soccer field and the dance studio. As a father of two, Drew has some words of wisdom for all parents.
“I think the biggest thing with any kid is teaching them confidence,” he says. “It’s okay to try things. You’re not always going to succeed at first, but just go for it.”
He adds, “Try to expose them to as many different positive things in their life as you can.”

Life is sweeter with two kids — and popsicles!
Vanessa Lachey wears several hats as a mother of two little ones, son Camden John, 2½, and daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth, 5 months. Now, the 34-year-old supermom is joining forces with Popsicle to launch the brand’s first-ever official comic book and new Avengers popsicle — a perfect fit for Lachey, whose son calls himself “Camden America.”
In fact, Camden and Scott Foley‘s son, Keller, have become quite the dynamic duo.
“[Keller] wears capes every day to school — it’s the cutest thing — and Camden became obsessed with it so then they became the duo. Super Camden and Super Keller. It’s fun,” Lachey tells PEOPLE.
“It’s fun to watch little boys let their imagination run wild and for me as a mom it’s great to see him evolve to this little person.”
Now with her little boy growing up and wearing sneakers and jeans, Lachey feels like the time has flown.
“I thought at 2 you were still wearing onesies that said ‘Mama’s big guy,’ but he’s like a little man,” she shares.
“Instead of thinking about when [Brooklyn’s] going to be there and what she’s going to be like, we’re just soaking up the babyness right now and the cooing and the swaddling for nap times,” she explains.
Big brother Camden is also enjoying special moments with his baby sister.
“[Camden] stood and plopped down on his bottom and [Brooklyn] started laughing at him,” she shares. “He was recognizing that he was making her laugh and so he kept saying, ‘Making baby sister laugh, making baby sister laugh.’ ”
“When I look back at one I’m like, what was I ever complaining about or what was I ever so stressed about? It’s funny because everyone says you sleep when baby sleeps or you take a nap when baby takes a nap. That’s true when you have one. When you have two, that is not true,” she explains.
“It does feel like the day becomes more hectic, but in all the best ways and in every way that I wanted it to become because I always wanted to be a mother and I always wanted to be a wife and I’ve always wanted a family.”
She adds, “So while it is a juggle and it is chaotic, it’s my chaos and at the end of the day, it’s what makes my world go round.”
The mom of two calls her ability to accomplish it all “a superpower.”
“I feel like the word mom and supermom should be synonymous,” Lachey says. “When you are a mom, you are a superhero.”
