Another big part of Jessica Simpson’s weight loss journey was getting on the path of sobriety. In a recent interview with TODAY, the star talked about getting on the wagon and the affect it had on her relationship with her family.
“I’ll have three years sober on Halloween,” Simpson told TODAY Parents on Wednesday.
She added, “What’s crazy is that throughout quarantine I haven’t wanted to drink. I know it’s shocking, but I’m determined.”
Simpson recently explained in her memoir, Open Book, that on Halloween 2017, she was too drunk to get her children dressed for trick-or-treating.
“I was terrified of letting them see me in that shape,“ she wrote, adding, “I am ashamed to say that I don’t know who got them into their costumes that night.”
She’s come a long way since then and is sharing her story in hopes of helping others.
