Ick. Did you hear what Jessica Simpson said on Ellen the other day? No clue how they got on this subject, but apparently Simpson said she only brushes her teeth “maybe three times a week.” GROSSSSSS!!! It actually gives me goosebumps thinking about the nastiness of that. I couldn’t go 12 hours without brushing my teeth! Even if I ever felt too lazy to brush, after reading what all dental community has said about the perils of missing a brush (she’s really caused a backlash in oral hygiene!), I would never skip. In fact, it makes me want to buy a travel toothbrush for my purse — because you can never be too careful.
Apparently Jess doesn’t want to brush her teeth more than that several times per week because she doesn’t like them to “feel too slippery.” BARF BARF BARF. Um, note to you, Jess: Teeth SHOULD feel slippery! Not like sandpaper. I’m not kidding, as soon as I read about this, I immediately went into the bathroom and brushed, flossed, and used mouthwash. My teeth were slippery as hell and it was great. I even could have thanked my Sonicare system (probably the greatest toothbrush ever invented) because every time I brush it makes me feel like I just got back from the dentist.
The thing is, I really like Jessica Simpson, and am wondering — why in God’s name would she say something like this? Why do celebrities do this to themselves? It really makes me appreciate being a normal person!
