In an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" set to air on Wednesday (March 3), Jessica Simpson opens up about ex-boyfriend John Mayer's controversial comments about her in Playboy, where he described her as "sexual napalm" and other colorful terms. And, although he called her to apologize, she didn't accept it.
"I tried to read the article, and I was so disappointed in him," she says on the show, according to UsMagazine.com. "It made me so sad, and it was really discouraging because that's not the John that I knew. ... I hope he gets his life together. He did apologize. I don't accept it. It's just one of those things that ... I don't resent him. I'm just going to let that go. That part of my life is over.
"I'm not angry," she continued. "I'm not angry. I'm — well, I'm a little bit angry ... I'm a little bit angry. Um ... well, I don't want people to know how I am in bed. I guess it could have been a lot worse."
In the magazine, Mayer also discussed his relationship with Jennifer Aniston. "It would bother any woman, I would think," Simpson said of his comments. "I had to get to a place where I had to guard myself."
During the episode, Simpson, whose new reality show "The Price of Beauty" is set to debut March 15 on VH1, also talks in depth about the criticism she received last year over her appearance and reported weight gain. "I fluctuate from [size] 4 to 6," she explained. "I'm not going to ever be size 0, and I don't want to weigh 90 pounds. ... It's a really hard thing for me to talk about because I celebrate women of all sizes. I think that we're all beautiful."
Adding that she's "absolutely" comfortable with her body, she says that her once pin-thin frame came at a different time in her life. "I love my curves," she said.
"I didn't weigh 90 pounds," she continued. "But I was — I was definitely smaller. But that was Daisy Duke, that's a role. I was playing a role. I don't want to look like Daisy Duke every day. I don't want to wear a bathing suit every day."
