On her first post-breakup magazine cover, Jessica Simpson opens up about everything from relationships to body image and her future.
Though the interview took place before her split with Tony Romo, Jessica tells Glamour -- on stands August 11 -- that she has no regrets, saying, "I don't regret anything I've gone through. I don't know what the future holds, but I hope that my life, as it is now, doesn't change. I'm very happy and comfortable -- it's a great place to be in. If this article comes out and we're not together, I'd still love [Tony], and he'd still be a huge part of who I am today."
When it comes to body image, she says she struggles just like everybody else. "It's not fair that women look in the mirror and feel disgust because of what society has made them believe about beauty. I've been through it myself and understand the pressures. We're all facing the same struggles together, whether you're a celebrity or not."
She also reveals that the only way to find love is to "find life" outside a relationship. "It was hard to imagine I would ever walk down the aisle again," she says of her divorce from hubby Nick Lachey. "It was like a death in the family: You go through the mourning stage, then the rebellion, and then all of a sudden you have to find life by yourself. Once you do that, you feel complete -- and that's the only time you can truly fall in love again, and give yourself over completely to another person."
As for her future, "I'm never going to be a woman who doesn't work," she adds. "At 12 I was emancipated from my parents so I could sign my first record deal. I think I was born working!"
