Jessica Simpson is forgetting, but not forgiving, her ex John Mayer.

During her appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show airing Wednesday, Simpson, 29, says that she tried to read the controversial Playboy interview in which he called her "sexual napalm" and compared her to crack cocaine.

"I tried to read the article, and I was so disappointed in him," she tells Oprah Winfrey. "It made me so sad, and it was really discouraging because that's not the John that I knew...I hope he gets his life together." She admitted she was "a little angry" about his rant.  "I don't want people to know how I am in bed!"

The singer confirms reports that he reached out to her in the aftermath. "He did apologize. I don't accept it. It's just one of those things that...I don't resent him. I'm just going to let that go. That part of my life is over."

The star of VH1's new reality show The Price of Beauty (debuting March 13) also opens up about the ongoing scrutiny regarding her weight.

"It would bother any woman, I would think," she says of the jibes. "I had to get to a place where I had to guard myself."

She also reveals that the infamous "Mom jeans" in the photos of her in early 2009 were a size four. "I fluctuate from 4 to 6," she explains.

Are these former couples on better terms?

And that's just fine with her. "I'm not going to ever be size 0, and I don't want to weigh 90 pounds...It's a really hard thing for me to talk about because I celebrate women of all sizes. I think that we're all beautiful."
