[BlindGossip] A well-known weight loss company wanted to hire this multi-hyphenate beauty. She was interested, but her manager ruined the deal by making ridiculous demands of the company. Of course, the manager requested the usual star treatment for his client. Beyond that, though, he absolutely refused to let the company meet or speak with the star before the first photo shoot. He also insisted that the company lie about her starting weight and Photoshop the “Before” photographs of the star so that she would appear less chubby than she actually was. The company refused and dropped her as a spokesperson before the campaign even began.

Remember when we were the first to tell you about Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy (She Will Be Making A Big Announcement Soon)? Well, there was even more drama around a potential weight-loss deal long before the baby was even born.
The story is exactly the way we told it two years ago. Jessica’s father, Joe Simspon, ruined her initial weight-loss deal with NutriSystem. His demands were ridiculous and the company balked.
As you now know, the singer/actress/fashion mogul wound up signing with Weight Watchers for $3 million. We don’t know if the conditions were the same, and whether or not those conditions were met. However, working with Jessica hasn’t exactly been easy for them, either!
Jessica didn’t lose the weight as quickly as everyone hoped. So Weight Watchers would up shooting a very odd commercial that only showed Jessica from the neck up.
She eventually did lose 60 pounds… and then immediately got pregnant again! Weight Watchers is not happy with their spokesperson.
Here are the delicate musings of The Superficial on the subject:
Thanks to gaining exactly 876 pounds before and after her pregnancy, Weight Watchers was forced to shoot Jessica Simpson‘s first commercial from the waist up as part of her $3 million deal which will now be referred to as the stupidest fucking bet in the history of ever. Because just as she was starting to lose weight, Eric Johnson’s unprotected penis ejaculated into her ovulating lady business rocketing her back into the warm, fuzzy embrace of eating M&Ms and mac & cheese until her foot falls off. Us Magazine reports:
“They’re furious at Jessica,” says the source of the star, who has a $4 million deal to shed to the pounds.
The source adds, “She was already on thin ice with them since she didn’t lose enough for a the first ad, when they had to shoot from the waist up.”
As a result, Simpson’s second campaign — celebrating a 70-pound loss — may not air. “They don’t think it can run,” the source explains. “No one wants to hear about a pregnant woman dieting.”
Congratulations to Doxie, who was first with the correct response!
