Promoting her television show that is less entertainment than it is an unabashed shill, she told Jimmy Kimmel “I never knew that a wiener could actually make me so nauseous.” Appearing to accidentally let slip.
However, a source says she contrived it for publicity.
“Jessica’s ‘slip-up’ was a rehearsed line, something she waited to do until the time was right for her,” a source close to the Simpson family tells Radar.
“She knew that she would be taping interviews to promote Fashion Star, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect.” Not only was that line rehearsed, but Jessica’s stratagem was designed to stir-up as much publicity for her new show Fashion Star (which premieres Friday) as possible by stringing the revelation out for as long as she could!
“It was the perfect excuse to bide her time, drum up as much speculation as possible, before revealing she was having a boy right before the second season premieres,” the source said.
“She thought up a few ideas with Eric and they felt the wiener gag would seem the most harmless and less obvious, so she went with that.” - via RadarOnline.
