Here are some pieces of the Elle Magazine interview with Jessica Simpson...
She says it hurt her to see Nick with other women right after they split up, she decided she wanted a divorce while watching The Notebook, and she says she can't say a word about her new life with John Mayer...
Although Jessica Simpson says she's "so happy right now," hearing about her ex-husband Nick Lachey hooking up with other women shortly after their split felt like a stab in the back. "Oh, it hurt me. Two or three weeks later? Yeah, I'd say it kind of hurt me," she says in an interview in the March issue of Elle.
Jessica says she made the decision to file for divorce in December 2005, after three years of marriage, while watching The Notebook on a plane ride. "I just figured out the statement...It was about that moment of desperation. I needed to breathe."
But she doesn't wish she'd never shared her life with Nick. "I'm happy I was married. I'm happy that he was in my life. I have no regrets," she says. In fact, she still keeps in touch with him! "He's so much a part of my life, how could I not be? Any guy that's going to be with me from this day forward has to understand that."
Regarding the latest man in her life, John Mayer, she says, "I want to tell you everything, but I have to sew my lips together." Asked if she's in love, she grins coyly, saying, "I didn't say yes."
