"I wish I could explain it," Jessica said about the fascination. "I wish I could say, for me, that it's gotten better, but it still remains the same."

Jessica then addressed how her kids have now noticed as well. She said, "Now, my kids see me being still scrutinized, and it's very confusing to them because they're like, 'Well, I don't even understand this.'"

"'Why don't they just say you look pretty, Mom? You look pretty,'" Jessica said.

Over the years, Jessica faced body shaming when unflattering photos of the mogul surfaced online.

Recently, when Jessica and her daughter starred in a Pottery Barn Kids ad, she shut down rumors she had lost weight using Ozempic, an injectable medication meant to help adults with type-2 diabetes that has also gained popularity as a weight-loss drug amongst celebrities and influencers.

Today, Jessica sees a silver lining regarding the noise. She shared, "It's okay because honestly for the Jessica Simpson Collection, it's been a beautiful thing. I have been every size. I do understand everybody and every woman and their mentality and how deserving they are of fashion and style."

For her kids, Maxwell, 11, Ace, 10, and Birdie Mae, 4, she shared her words of advice for them. "I tell my kids, 'How you feel about yourself, is how you should feel,'" Jessica said. "Stay comfortable, you be you."

"I think more than weight that people have focused on, we need to focus on our mentality about even talking about weight," Jessica concluded. "I think it just doesn't need to be a conversation."
