"Jessica Simpson has been my idol for four years," says 19-year-old Holly. "I was in and out of the hospital for three yeas and her music just helped me. Her music speaks to me -- the way she expresses herself, speaking from the heart. She tells you to be beautiful in your own skin and that's the truth."
Jessica, who's starring in Employee of the Month, promoting her new CD and shoe line, says, "It's a little busy these days in the life of Jessica Simpson." Rachael gives her a break with some kitchen table talk and a dose of random questions!
Q: How many times do you wear your jeans before you wash them?
It depends if they're supposed to be a tight jean or if I'm having a day when I've had too much salt and feel a little bloated. My comfy go-to jeans I can wear for a full week!
Q: What are you cheap about?
Honestly, people might be shocked by this, but ever since I got a house I've been furnishing it on my own, which is a very big girl thing of me to do. I'm a woman now! Kind of. So me and my mom have been decorating it and so a thrifty thing I do is to have my mom around to keep me on a budget.
Q: What is your go-to comfort food?
I do love Velveeta! Or chicken fried steak.
Q: My first celebrity crush was Tom Jones when I was 3. Who's yours?
I made a fool of myself in front of Johnny Depp! Dane Cook and I hosted the Teen Choice Awards and Johnny Depp made this surprise appearance. I was totally struck! Like, by lightning. I said all the wrong things. I ended up saying, "Ok, I'm going to shut up now and walk away." I said that to him!
The audience also gets a turn to ask Jessica about what she does in her downtime, her hidden talents (the answer even surprises Rachael!), and more.
Watch Rachael and Jessica cook Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Breasts.
