Jessica Simpson seemed disoriented and dizzy as she slurred her words during an appearance on the Home Shopping Network, and fans were quick to react to her behavior on social media.
The singer-turned-designer joined host Colleen Lopez to sell her “Kiss Me” Super Skinny Gray Jeans. However, viewers were more focused on Simpson’s bizarre behavior, as the 35-year-old told stories of her sister, Ashlee, sharing jeans with her husband Evan Ross.
Twitter erupted with comments from viewers who thought Simpson may have been drunk during the segment.

When reached by TheWrap for comment on Simpson’s appearance, a spokesperson for HSN stated, “It was fun to have Jessica make her HSN debut with her mother Tina last night. We were happy to host them and thrilled with the way customers responded to the collection.”
Simpson and stylist Ken Paves launched hair and beauty products on HSN back in 2006. Since then, the singer has ventured into the world of fashion, and created the Jessica Simpson Collection in which she designs and markets handbags, shoes and boots.
Simpson’s odd behavior on the network brings to mind another singer: Mariah Carey. The diva was promoting her collection of jewelry in 2011, but couldn’t stop rambling on about how difficult her life has been.
Representatives for Simpson declined TheWrap’s request for comment.
