Jessica Simpson appeared on the Home Shopping Network on Sept. 17 to sell her super skinny gray jeans, but slurred her words and swayed, prompting viewers to question if the actress/singer was drunk (video below).

HSN told People in a statement: "It was fun to have Jessica make her HSN debut with her mother Tina last night. We were happy to host them and thrilled with the way customers responded to the collection."

Unidentified sources close to Simpson told TMZ her slurred speech and giggling is just part of her personality, and that she seemed more alert for most of the two-hour segment.

InTouch Weekly reported in April that Simpson's family tried to stage an intervention because of her alleged abuse of Adderall to lose weight, and alcohol, which Simpson has not confirmed.
