US Weekly is reporting that Jessica Simpson’s Weight Watchers deal is in jeopardy if she is really pregnant again just seven months after giving birth to her daughter.
“In the Dec. 17 issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday), a source says execs are livid that their new spokeswoman, 32, got pregnant just seven months after welcoming daughter Maxwell. “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.” (A Simpson pal counters that the ads will see the light of day: “It was Weight Watchers’ idea to shoot her from the waist up the first time.”)”
So lots of thoughts and questions on this:
1. Why can’t they use the ad campaign and photos of her having lost all that baby weight? Who cares what happens now. She lost about 70 pounds on the Weight Watchers plan. Her weight loss is still valid even if she’s pregnant again. Do you think that’s a problem for her ad campaign of her little to be running while she also photographed as pregnant?
2. If you knew you were going to have close pregnancies (which we don’t know if she planned it or not if she is pregnant) then did you try to lose all your initial baby weight? What’s the plan there if you know you’re going to be pregnant again within a year or two?
3. Is it good to have babies close together? What is a good spacing if close?? Is Jessica in big trouble if these babies are just 16 months apart?
My first one was 16 months old when I got pregnant with my second. I had lost all my baby weight by then and he was a surprise. We weren’t trying to have them two years apart but that’s where we ended up. I had four years between my second and third and I think again had lost most of the pregnancy weight.
So what do you think: If Jessica Simpson is pregnant is that a bad deal for Weight Watchers? Are her weight loss and photos unusable? Did you lose all your baby weight between close pregnancies? Is it worth the trouble? What happened if you didn’t?
