Was Jessica Simpson Drunk During Her Live HSN Appearance?


Jessica Simpson showed up on Home Shopping Network to promote her clothing line on Thursday, but in turn got slammed on Twitter for being, what some tweets claimed, a little bit out of it.

The social media firestorm called attention to how the mother-of-two was promoting her "Kiss Me" super-skinny gray jeans alongside host Colleen Lopez.

Simpson complimented her sister, Ashlee Simpson, while talking about the pants, but many Twitter users saw this as rambling, pointing out that she was swaying and stumbling back and forth.

"Ashlee is, like, the best at wearing gray," Simpson said, adding, "Like, she's very rock 'n' roll, but there's something about a gray, that's, like, sexy."
