Jessica Simpson in Allure

She's been slammed for her weight, rumored to be dropped by labels and had intimate details of her relationships splashed across the tabloids. Most of us would run for the hills. But Jessica Simpson isn't most women.

The blonde bombshell is back with a new reality show and a newfound confidence.

In the March issue of Allure magazine, Simpson shared her thoughts on growing up, her famous exes and, of course, her weight.

On the state of her career and turning 30:
“I never really thought, growing up, what am I gonna be like when I’m 30? I just kind of thought I had it figured out: I’m going to be this great pop star, have my songs on the radio, be married, and have babies....But things can be taken away from you. A song can not be played on the radio. An album can not work.”

On the resulting outrage from her notorious ‘Mom Jeans’ photo:
“When I walk through an airport and people go, ‘You’re not fat!’ I’m like, ‘Thanks. That’s great. Good to know I’m not fat today! Thank you!’”

On acting:
“I will never do nudity. I don’t care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know. I don’t care if I frickin’ could get an Oscar for it, I’m not going to do it. Those accolades mean nothing to me. I don’t think people deserve to see what’s under my clothing. That’s only for my next husband—ha-ha-ha.”

On her ex-boyfriend Tony Romo:
“I’m still a fan. I’m a huge fan. I wear my gear, and I cheer Tony on. You know, I talked to Tony today. None of my breakups, none of it’s been bitter.”

On John Mayer and her brunette period:
“He didn’t make me go brunette! John doesn’t get credit for making me brunette. He’d like to think so, but he doesn’t deserve the credit.”

Talk about good timing. Glamour interviewed Jessica Simpson about what it might be like if she and Tony Romo broke up, before they broke up. Now Glamour has the exclusive interview in their September issue, and we have a sneak peek.

"I don't know what the future holds, but I hope that my life, as it is now, doesn’t change,"  Simpson sadly told the magazine. But it sounded like she may have smelled the faint scent of a break-up in the air. "If this article comes out and we're not together, I'd still love [Tony], and he'd still be a huge part of who I am today.â€�

Tony even gave her a little advice that must smart now as she focuses hard on re-starting her career with a new reality show, "The Price of Beauty." 

"Tony said, 'Jessica, at the end of your life, the only thing that's going to flash through your mind and heart is your husband, kids, family and the people you love. You're not going to think, I wish I'd done this with my career. And I'm not going to remember how many touchdown passes I threw or if I won the Super Bowl.'"

Hmm. Sounds like the Cowboys might want to read this article, too.
