Jessica Simpson is on a roll! And by that we also mean that she’s bank-rollin’. Jessica and her adorable baby girl, Maxwell Drew, are on the cover of People magazine this week. The publication reportedly coughed up $800,000 for the precious first photos of her newborn daughter. But that’s just chump change when compared to what Weight Watchers is shelling out for her to become their latest spokesperson. They’re handing over $4 million! You heard correctly.
The news has been circulating for some time now but there were no confirmations till yesterday. Jessica announced the news on her Facebook page, saying, “It’s official, I’m joining Weight Watchers! The cool thing about the program is that it focuses on healthy habits for the long-term (and I can still indulge in my guilty pleasures every now and then too). I have actually gotten a group of friends together who are going to be doing it with me. You can join me too and we can share our experiences!” She also shared an update on Twitter, writing, “So excited to be a part of the WeightWatchers family!” According to sources, she’s pretty serious about getting back into fighting shape as well. One informant has revealed, “As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out. She wants to show the world and is excited to do it.” We have a feeling she’s going to get back into Daisy Dukes in no time!
