Despite all the negative things people have said about her, Jessica Simpson is doing great, she insists.

“I’m very happy. Right now in my life, I’m the most confident I’ve ever been. I can make that statement,” she tells People magazine. “At this point, nothing else can be said about me that could be worse than I have already read.”

She also thinks that everyone should try and work through their problems — just not necessarily with a paid professional: “I really believe that somebody should just sit in front of their best friend in the world and have their friend ask any and every question — offensive or not. And whatever it is, answer it,” Simpson advises. “That’s your therapy. Really tackling those issues inside and out.”
