Get out your toothbrushes, gentlemen -- Jessica Simpson and her bizarre teeth-cleaning habits are back on the market.
Jessica tells Ellen -- in an interview airing later today -- that she's on the prowl for a new boy toy ... but she's keeping it on the DL, saying "I mingle around very privately. 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."
As for why Jessica only brushes her teeth three times a week: "I don't like [my teeth] to feel too slippery ... My lips just slide all over the place. I need a little coating."
