Jessica Simpson: so fresh and so clean?

Not so much.

The singer, 29, admits in an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to air Wednesday that she only brushes her teeth "maybe three times a week."

Why?

"Because my teeth are so white and I don't like them to feel too slippery but I do use Listerine and I do floss everyday," she explains. "But I don't brush them every day."

"My lips just slide all over the place....I can't catch up with my mouth," she continues. "I need a little coating...."

Instead, she'll "use a shirt or something" to scrub her chompers clean.

"I know it's gross but I always have fresh breath," she swears. "It's really weird but I have great breath."

Maybe that explains why the Vh1 reality star is still single. Although she says she's actively looking for her next guy on the down low.

"I mingle around very privately," she tells DeGeneres. "I have ways in and out of my house and certain places that I go that are private just so I can have a normal life. I'm still out there and bring normal."

After very public splits with John Mayer and Tony Romo, she still says it "doesn't really matter" if her next guy is famous or not.

Her only requirements: "They definitely have to understand my life and what I put up with and what I deal with.  Being scrutinized publicly... [that] can definitely make or break a relationship and you have to have that strong foundation... so I have to have somebody that understands that kind of lifestyle."
