It sounds like Jessica Simpson has found a new outlook on her life.
"I'm very happy,” she told People magazine at the event. “Right now in my life, I'm the most confident I've ever been. I can make that statement."
Simpson may have much reason to be happy in the relationship front. The star, who turned 30 on July 10, is reportedly seeing ex-pro football player Eric Johnson. The two started dating in May and recently spent time together at Florida’s Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.
The singer/actress told People: "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. That's your therapy. Really tackling those issues inside and out."
Coming up next for Simpson is the 2010 Teen Choice Awards on FOX tomorrow. She is a nominee for two awards: as an activist and for her TV program “Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty.”
