Jessica Simpson Getting $4 Million to Drop the Baby Weight
Yep, She's Getting Paid to Drop That Baby Weight
Most women have to deal with all the work and sleepless nights involve with having a new baby before they can even think about conjuring up the motivation to drop the weight they gained during pregnancy.
So, yes, it's okay if you feel like throwing a diet book right at Jessica Simpson's head after reading this: the reality TV star and fashionista not only has plenty of cash to pony up for nannies galore, but now she's getting paid -- serious cash -- to drop her pregnancy pounds.
Simpson has a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers to shed all the extra weight she gained during her pregnancy with just-born daughter Maxwell, reports US Weekly.
“She’ll have to meet the weight-loss goals for the deal to go through,” a source tells the mag. “She hasn’t cho¬sen a trainer yet. In fact, she hasn’t even thought about working out for a year. But if she wants this, she’ll need to work out a good five days a week.”
Simpson was the butt of much media speculation -- and more than her fair share of cruel jokes at her expense -- when her pregnancy dragged on and her weight shot up.
The star famously dieted and worked out to get into those size two shorts for her role as Daisy Duke in the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie, though, so, especially with that added $4 million incentive, don't feel too sorry for her.
"As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out," a source tells US Weekly. "She wants to show the world and is excited to do it."
