Jessica Simpson Weight Watch Begins

MSNBC is so over the happy baby news, it’s time for the baby weight story to take over: Jessica Simpson's baby wait is over, but Weight Watchers awaits.

So after the requisite how-many-trimesters-was-that-pregnancy jokes we move onto the question in everyone’s mind (well, not my mind, but according to the news it seems like this what they think everyone cares about)—how and when will she lose all that weight?!

“But now the battle begins. And no, we're not talking about the sleepless nights and the poopy diapers and the need for giant post-natal underwear. We are talking about that $3 million contract Papa Simpson negotiated with Weight Watchers in December. Jessica, it's time to hit the treadmill. There is no room for maternity leave OR mom jeans when you are employed by Simpson Family Inc.”

I had forgotten that Simpson already had a deal worked out with Weight Watchers to be their spokesperson. I feel a little disturbed now. If she knew she was going to be losing the weight in the public eye as a “thing,” wouldn’t that actually be incentive for her to gain as much weight as possible?

I dearly hope that there wasn’t some clause in her contract that said the more weight she gained and subsequently lost, the more money she would be paid, or something like that. Because, you know, if she made lots of headlines for how much weight she gained the big loss afterwards will get even more press—oh, Weight Watchers and Jessica Simpson, tell me it isn’t true…
