Business woman Jessica Simpson may be close to inking a deal with Weight Watchers so that she can take off her pregnancy pounds and get paid for it! Jess may earn $4 million to represent the company.
Jessica wanted to work with Weight Watchers anyway, and then she got knocked up. “This was the perfect compromise,” a source says.
Simpson would have one year to “lose a significant amount of weight” under contract.
Hmmm… let me think about this for a few seconds. Jess gained weight years ago, she pretty much didn’t lose any of it, now she’s pregnant and she’s supposed to “lose a significant amount of weight?” Anyone can drop pounds, maintaining a good physique is the challenging part. Let’s face it, Jess hasn’t done anything to suggest that she’s ready to make positive lifestyle changes. Before she was pregnant, she was always drunk!
Weight Watchers doesn’t need celebrities for visibility, when weight loss companies choose reps like Queen Latifah, Kristie Alley and Jessica Simpson, they damage the company’s credibility, IMHO. If you’re going to go with a celebrity, finding women like Jennifer Hudson, who didn’t have a history of yo-yo dieting, is the smart choice. How are customers supposed to be inspired and remain motivated when wealthy celebrity spokeswhores can’t even keep the pounds off?
