You don’t mess with a heavily pregnant mom-to-be!
On the premiere episode of Fashion star Tuesday night, Jessica Simpson showed that she’s not going to take an insult lightly, ripping into a “sexist” contestant – and RadarOnline.com has video of her take-down!
Jessica and her co-host Nicole Richie critiqued Australian model-turned-designer Nicholas’ leather jacket collection and he snapped, “It’s very hard to understand the girls giving advice about men’s fashion.”
Not so fast!
Jessica, whose own fashion line has generated over $1 billion in sales, didn’t like that, one bit.
“I’m a little bit offended,” she said. “A lot a bit, actually. To talk down to a woman in this business? We’re running the world right now.”
Then she really let him have it. “I’m trying to be nice but I really kind of want to hit you across the face right now!”
During the show the singer/actress/businesswoman actually Tweeted about Nicholas, writing: “I know what a buyer wants @nicholasbowes and I really hope you take everyone’s advice to heart. #FashionStar”.
Not backing down for one minute, he arrogantly responded: “I’ve done my time,” with a link to pictures of celebrities wearing t-shirts from his fashion line.
Nicholas’ comments didn’t help him, not surprisingly, and he landed in the bottom two and was sent home at the end of the show, but not without a parting word from Jessica, “’I wish it was just confidence and not arrogance,” she said.
Fashion Star airs on NBC Tuesdays 10/9c.
