How Did Jessica Simpson Go From Pop Star to Business Billionaire?


Jessica Simpson is reportedly tying the knot this weekend with fiancé Eric Johnson. So before the mother-of-two takes a walk down the aisle, we're taking a walk down memory lane to see how she went from pop star to a business billionaire.

The world first noticed the 33-year-old's talents back in 1999 when she belted out "I Wanna Love You Forever." Between her blonde locks and her bubbly personality, the beauty became an instant star. But her career seemed to explode when she and then-husband Nick Lachey got their own reality series, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica on MTV in 2003.

While it was their fairytale-like romance that had some viewers tuning in, it was also her fabulous one liners.

Remember this one? "Is chicken or is this fish? I know it's tuna but it says chicken."
