Hey, we might forget it when we're feeling our flesh creep when her Dad it talking about her tits, but Jessica Simpson is just a person, just like anyone else*. People constantly suggesting that her marriage to Nicholas Lachey was little more than a crumbling edifice put together to help her build a profile has seen her heading off to get
the help of a counsellor. Now, Gripper Stebson might think it okay to write "Jesso is a headcase - she goes to a shrink" on the blackboard at this point, and then make her roll all the way home, but let's hear her out, shall we?

"Yes I have," the singer-actress tells Teen People in its December-January issue, on newsstands Friday. "I respect knowledge of the psyche. I would be a therapist if I weren't an entertainer."

She doesn't say if she would be a strict Freudian, a loose Jungian, or perhaps draw more strongly on More Chicken Soup For The Soul.

Still, there's no end in sight for the marriage, she insists:

"Hopefully mine and Nick's story will continue for the rest of our lives, like what we vowed, through sickness and in health."

Like what they done vowed, she done said. We're sure she focused on the "sickness and health" bit because, while she's always happy to whore her own wedding to MTV or do a shoot for Maxim, the "for poorer" bit is never going to be much of an issue.
