On a budget!
Jessica Simpson is being extra careful with her money now that she has big plans to expand her Jessica Simpson Collection clothing line — and that means no fast food!
While sitting down for an interview on The Real, the pop star admitted she's taking big steps to make sure that she doesn't overspend.
“I am draining my bank account,” she told the hosts on an episode that aired Tuesday, April 19. “I have no working credit card. It’s OK. I will pay in cash. I went to Taco Bell the other day, and my card got denied. I’m on a budget, ladies!”
But the sacrifices are worth it for the mom-of-three. She went on to explain it's been her determination and confidence that drives her when it comes to her plans for growing her billion dollar business.
"With money, there’s just so much fear attached to it. And I’m the person that you get mad at the blackjack table," she joked. "I’ll put it all out there if it’s me that’s driving the show because I believe in myself and I know what I can do. And I know that nothing will stop me, and if you try to stop me, I’ll try harder."
Simpson is currently planning to expand her brand to include men and boy's clothing lines and every penny counts, especially after suffering a few bumps in the road. The blonde beauty originally founded Jessica Simpson Collection with her mother in 2005, and later sold it to Sequential Brands Group Inc. However, after the company went bankrupt, it took a three-year legal battle to win the rights back.
"I am truly humbled to reclaim 100% ownership of MY name and my brand," she wrote via Instagram last November in a post announcing her court win. "It was a long journey getting to this point. I was told no, that brand ownership was out of the question, that I was not relevant enough, and I would never have 100%. My mom @tinasimpsonofficial and I remained steadfast, patient, determined, brave, and STRONG. TODAY we can look back and say we BEAT ALL ODDS stacked against us."
