When Jessica Simpson gave birth earlier this year she signed a $4MM contract with Weight Watchers to lose the post-baby weight. She’s reportedly now hanging by a thread with the contract. An insider from Weight Watchers said that while they were very happy that Simpson surprised everyone with her second baby, the company still wants Simpson to honor their agreement.
The contract reportedly involved an escape clause and the company really wants to get going with their next campaign. This puts added pressure on Simpson to lose the weight. The source is also saying that Simpson is having a hard time sticking with the program. We’ll have to see how this plays out. Simpson is a hard worker and she’ll probably pull through.
One the flip side, one has to realize that Simpson’s empire of fashion and cosmetics is worth over $1 Billion. Yes a billion so $4MM really isn’t all that much. Still though, if I were a gambling man I’d side with Simpson.
