Jessica Simpson says her first marriage to Nick Lachey was her biggest money mistake.
The blonde bombshell appeared on CNBC’s Closing Bell on Thursday to talk about her billion dollar business.
“The biggest money mistakes? I don’t know. For some reason I thought of my first marriage.” Jessica said with a laugh.
“That’s actually a common answer, believe it or not,” replied the host Kelly Evans.
Jessica and Nick were married from 2002 to 2006. Their claim to fame was their own MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
According to HELLO!, Jessica was celebrating the 10th anniversary of her fashion line, which rakes in a whopping $1billion in sales each year. Asked where she sees herself in the next five to ten years, she replied, “I always say I’m ready for another billion!”
The show’s host also quizzed Jessica on her huge financial success. “My business manager (and I) have been together for 16 years now. He’s one of the first people that I met coming into New York City, and I trust him with everything,” she said. “We’ve made really great investments, we haven’t really made any mistakes.”
Jessica has been married to ex-American football player Eric Johnson since 2014 and they have two children together, daughter Maxwell Drew, three, and two-year-old son Ace Knute.
