“Her [Simpson’s] new book will be a candid, inspiring and behind-the-scenes look at how she chose to learn from each difficult moment, evolve musically, become a more fearless businesswoman and consistently shatter all expectations of who she was ‘supposed’ to be,” the HarperCollins Publishers’ description reads.

Per the outlet:

Topics covered will rage from “her popular television show Newlyweds, to a very public divorce, starring on the big screen and topping the Billboard charts, finding new love, raising a family, and running a successful business empire,” per the press release.

Simpson and Lachey were married from 2002 to 2006 and together starred in a hit reality series on MTV called “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.”

The “Employee of the Month” star later wed former NFL star Eric Johnson in 2014 and have three kids together.
