After finally reaching her goal weight following the birth of daughter Maxwell, Jessica is pregnant again! But Weight Watchers execs are furious over jeopardizing her multi-million dollar weight-loss deal.
Jessica Simpson signed a lucrative multi-million dollar deal with Weight Watchers last year — while she was still pregnant with daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson — to lose her baby weight with the program and serve as a spokesperson for the company.
But even though she’s dropped more than 60 pounds in less than seven months, news that Jessica is pregnant again has angered execs at the weight loss company — and her position as celebrity spokesperson is in jeopardy.
“They’re furious at Jessica,” a source told Us Weekly about the higher-ups at Weight Watchers.
“She was already on thin ice with them since she didn’t lose enough for the first ad, when they had to shoot from the waist up,” the source added.
Even though the Fashion Star host has lost nearly 70 pounds, they may not air her most recent commercial that shows her full-body shot. “No one wants to hear about a pregnant woman dieting,” the source said.
But Jessica doesn’t seem bothered by the prospect. On Nov. 21 — a week before news of her second pregnancy broke — she retweeted, “Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.”
Hopefully Weight Watchers will let her use their program after baby number two!
