The fashion designer quipped: “It happens to the best of us @WholeFoods.”

Nearly 14 years ago, Simpson comically asked then-husband Nick Lachey if the Chicken of the Sea-brand tuna that she was eating was actually chicken or fish during their MTV series Newlyweds.

“I know it’s tuna, but it says chicken by the sea,” Simpson said at the time. “Is that stupid?” Lachey, now 43, shook his head before laughing. “You act like you’ve never had tuna before. Baby, you and I have had tuna like this before.” (The exes split in 2006 after four years of marriage.)
