While her ex-hubby, Nick Lachey, is busy romancing current main squeeze Vanessa Minnillo in sunny Puerto Rico, Jessica Simpson had a not-so-tropical setting on her mind. “Boston has cute boys,” the singer/actress tells TV’s Extra. “I need a Boston man. A Boston man is closest to a Southern man.”

In the interview, set to air Tuesday night, the former Newlywed confirms what OK! recently reported — that she’s working on a country album in Nashville. “I can’t wait to share my heart with the world,” she explains. “I really can’t wait to let people in on what I’ve experienced — the fun, the good, the bad, the happy, the sad… it’ll be a very personal album.”

Looking forward to the holidays, Jess says she can’t wait to spend time with her family. “We try and have family outings… it’s always real special when it’s the four of us because normally there are so many people around us.”

Check out Extra Tuesday night for the entire interview.
