Jessica Simpson made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her new memoir and share an awkward story about hooking up with Justin Timberlake. The singer says they shared a kiss after her divorce from Nick Lachey, but it didn’t go as planned. “After [the] divorce and he was out of a relationship, he was, like, over at my house, we shared a nostalgic kiss, but I thought, ‘Oh, this is interesting.’ And he took his phone out and started typing. And I was like, ‘Okay, I hope that’s not, like, another girl. Like, did I, like, stick my tongue out too much or, you know?”

She continues with, “But apparently him and Ryan Gosling had a bet on who would kiss me first when they were 12-years-old. And so, he texted Ryan and said he won the bet. And I was like, ‘Oh, okay. Um…So we don’t kiss again. That’s done.”

She does go on to say that if she had her choice, she prefers Ryan. “Ryan was the one that I was, like…when I was 12, I was, like, ‘This guy is so cool, and he’s from Canada. I don’t know where that is on the map, but I really think that that’s amazing.’ And there was something so cute about him. But Justin won the bet.”

Jimmy Kimmel also pitches a funny reboot to her hit show Newlyweds. What the video below.
