Jessica Simpson Might Get $4 Million To Lose That Baby Weight

Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy was only announced a few weeks ago, and already the singer is planning how to shed that post-baby weight. Oh, and how to rake in millions upon millions of dollars doing it. Hey, if people are going to be talking about Jessica Simpson’s weight (which you know they will be), she might as well get that money, yes? Yes. According to Us Magazine, Jessica was allegedly in talks to become a Weight Watchers spokesperson prior to her baby time news. “But then she got pregnant,” their source says. “So this was the perfect compromise.” Like current spokesdiva Jennifer Hudson, Simpson would have a year to “lose a significant amount of weight” before raking in the dough. Wow, can you imagine how motivated we would be to hit the gym if someone danged $4 million in front of the treadmill? We’re not saying we would actually go either way. We’re just saying: wow.

Jessica Simpson’s Ex Tony Romo Announces Baby On The Way

Jessica Simpson, you need to get on your game! Everyone knows the point of having an adorable baby with your gorgeous husband is to show all your exes how great your life is! Oh, and to create a family to love and cherish forever. Regardless!

Jessica Simpson’s alleged baby bump might be obvious to anyone with eyes to see, but it’s her ex Tony Romo’s baby who got an official announcement out there first. “Um, no, I don’t have any kids. I’ve actually got one on the way. My wife’s pregnant.,” Romo told a cheering crowd of kids while visiting Cedar Hill High School outside of Dallas today. See, Jessica! You could have had an auditorium full of ninth graders cheering for your fetus! Granted Romo and Simpson split back in 2009 and probably don’t even think about each other anymore, but what about us? Jessica had better pop that sucker out first, is all we’re saying. Do it for the fans!

Report: Jessica Simpson Is Pregnant

Ok, for real this time. Whisperings of Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy have been circulating for months, especially lately as the singer has been seen out and about wearing very loose fitting tops over her teeny short-shorts. But now inTouch Weekly is reporting that the singer is indeed pregnant with fiance Eric Johnson’s baby! The couple recently attended Eric’s 32nd birthday party, where Jessica reportedly refused her glass of champaign for the birthday toast. An insider says that Jessica has an extra special bday gift for her soon-to-be-hubby: a first born!

Despite this, the two still plan to wed this November. “Jessica might have to take out her dress a bit,” the source admitted to in Touch. They went on to claim that the bundle is due in spring. “She’s already having kooky cravings!” Her chow of choice? Nacho chips dipped in chocolate. They apparently satisfy her urge for salty and sweet. Hmmm, we’ve never thought of that, but we’d try it. Someone should open up a restaurant with a menu of pregnant woman flavor combos. Write this down people, this is gold. Oh, and congrats to the (reportedly) new parents to-be!

Nicole Richie, Ashlee Simpson and Sam Ronson Have A Bikini Party In Mexico

It looks like Nicole Richie had herself a late birthday party, and this one was bikini themed! The socialite spent this weekend south of the border in Los Cabos, Mexico, where some famous friends joined her poolside. Ashlee Simpson showed up in a tiny-weeny black polka-dot bikini (had to), while Sam Ronson went with a more pink and blue tie-dye style. Ashlee’s sister Jessica Simpson also attended, but she apparently didn’t get the memo and forgot her two-piece. *Sigh* We’ll let it slide this time, Jessica. But do it again and you’re off the guest list. Check out more in the gallery below!

Jessica Simpsons Dismisses Breast Reduction Rumors With Boob Puns

After tabloids reported that she’d downsize her D-cups, Jessica Simpson has taken to her Twitter to blast those rumors with a dose of self confidence, and some truly priceless boob-themed puns. “Been getting lots of questions about this alleged breast reduction,” she wrote yesterday. “Not t0 w0rry…I LOVE MY BOOBIES!! They aren’t going anywhere!” Yes Jessica, we were all very concerned. Stories have been making the rounds that the elder Simpson sis would reduce her bust to prep for her wedding with NFL star Eric Johnson. “She thinks if she downsizes her breasts she will look smaller,” a source told InTouch Weekly. “She’s never loved having a huge chest.” But Jessica made boobs of them *zing* by insisting that these ta-ta tales are nothing but false. “It’s UDDERly not true!” she wrote. “Breast assured everyone!” Damn it Jess, you’ve out-punned us!

The Stars Are Out At Adele’s LA Concert

Adele has sold approximately ninety zillion (give or take) copies of her instant classic 21 this year, so it’s no surprise that she’s playing to sold out venues all over the world. Some of her more famous fans were spotted attending her concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles last night! Dianna Agron looked stunning and see-throughy in a mildly scando sheer top, while Glee-mate Amber Riley took a more wrapped up approach in a colorful flowery blouse. Some stars made a romantic evening out of it, as Jessica Simpson showed up with fiance Eric Johnson on her arm, and America Ferrera brought along her hubby, Mr. America Ferrera (sorry, we mean Ryan Piers William). Fellow world-shaking Brit Robert Pattinson was rumored to have attended, but sadly gave the paps the slip. But many other celebs didn’t! Check out the gallery below to see what other stars came out to groove to Adele.

Nicole Richie And Jessica Simpson Team Up For Fashion Reality Show

Two of our favorite blonds are teaming up for NBC’s new show Fashion Star. Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos will act as mentors — a la The Voice — to wannabee fashion designers. Elle MacPherson is set to host the show, which will also offer up contestants’ designs for purchase each week. Says executive producer Ben Silverman, “Jessica, Nicole, John and Elle make the most exciting team we have ever worked with on a reality television show and we are thrilled to feature such an extraordinary group of mentors and designers.”

Yes yes yes and more yes! We’ve already witnessed Nicole and Jessica make TV (and fashion) magic on their own, so we can’t wait to see them in action together. NBC — find a way to work in Chicken of the Sea, woncha please?

Jessica Simpson Fancies Herself A Businesswoman, Has The Millions To Prove it

We giggled a bit after reading that Jessica Simpson declared herself a “businesswoman.” After all, this is the woman who will forever be burned in our brain as someone who thought Chicken of the Sea tuna fish was actually chicken. But then we read how much her brand has raked in – $750 million worldwide!!! – and we almost keeled over and passed out in a pile of our credit card bills. Pardon us for ever doubting you, Jess. What you lack in commonsense you clearly make up for in fancy business lady knowledge. Would you be interested in maybe buying us lunch and paying off our Visa card?

Jessica told Us Magazine that, “This year, I’ve taken time for myself to enjoy being engaged and in love and being a businesswoman instead of an entertainer.” She also apparently spends a decent amount of time actually working on her designs (clothes, shoes, bags, etc). “I’m in the workroom in [L.A.'s] Westwood a few times a week from 11 to 7 at night,” she says. Jess was recently Paris, seeking inspiration for her line. We’d be annoyed, but are so impressed by her actual work ethic that we don’t really mind. “Nothing goes out without me seeing it or my mom [Tina Simpson, cocreative director] seeing it,” says Jess.

Jessica Simpson Wants On X Factor, But Simon Wants Nicole Scherzinger

We’re so psyched for Simon Cowell to come back to TV that we keep forgetting that other judges have to sit up there on The X Factor with him. Jessica Simpson doesn’t have that problem, though, since she really wants to be one. “They have definitely talked to me about X Factor,” Jessica told WWD. “I think it would be a lot of fun. It’s definitely my life. To be a mentor for up-and-coming artists is right up my alley. I would have loved to have a mentor. I love watching people’s dreams come true.” Hey, if Papa Joe Simpson wasn’t a mentor, what was he?

If Jessica did manage to get a spot next to Simon, she’d have to know she was a second choice—Simon made clear to TV Guide that he wants Nicole Scherzinger on The X Factor. “I want her to do it, but we’ve got to get the deal done and find someone she has chemistry with. But I absolutely adore her. She was fantastic on the U.K. X Factor and I’m hopeful it will happen.” It might be ironic for Nicole to push new talent into record deals when it took her four years to get her own solo album out (Killer Love finally dropped this month), but a high profile gig like this certainly couldn’t hurt her singing career. At least Jessica Simpson can console herself with being a billionaire—in the eyes of people who don’t understand how “fashion empires” work.

Jessica Simpson Tries To Prevent Release Of Her Dirty, Dirty Workout Tape

Imagine you’re a young singer just trying to make it in the entertainment world, when all of a sudden someone tells you that you can make a fortune if only you star in a video where you’re scantily clad and writhing around, all sweaty, grunty and short of breath. Of course you’d say yes, this is L.A. But then you’d come to regret it, and try to prevent the public release of this tape years later. That’s exactly what Jessica Simpson is doing with an exercise tape she filmed in 2005. Wait, you didn’t think it was a sex tape did you? Get your mind out of the gutter.

Simpson made a workout video six years ago for a company called Speedfit, but once it was finished, she blocked the release of said tape because she felt it “was not good enough to be sold.” This led to a long court case which only just ruled in Simpson’s favor in 2010.  What could possibly be caught on film that Simpson was willing to spend five years in court battling over? We aren’t sure, but you may get a chance to see because a man named Ed Meyer bought the rights to the tape from Speedfit and is threatening to release it. Simpson’s lawyers have warned him saying “You have no enforceable rights of any sort in the so-called Jessica Simpson exercise video From Speedfit,” and they plan legal action against him if he makes it public, but we have  to admit, this only makes us want to see this mysterious exercise tape even more.
