Us Weekly Says Jessica Simpson Was Drinking While Breastfeeding

From Us:

The scale has spoken – and it doesn’t have any good news for Jessica Simpson. A source tells Hot Stuff that Jessica learned at her first Weight Watchers weigh-in – a few weeks after the May 1 birth of daughter Maxwell – she had gained 70 pounds. Luckily, Jessica has $4 million worth of motivation to shed them.

Her contract requires a 20 to 30 pound loss by the end of August or no payday, says a source. But it won’t be easy.

“Jessica has always had issues with junk food,” says a Simpson pal. So Jessica has called in reinforcements: She enlisted her mom, Tina, and a few pals to do the program “to help keep herself in check,” says the insider. Simpson, who plans to breastfeed through July, also ditched her beloved high-calorie margaritas, adds the source. “She had a few drinks postpregnancy, but then stopped.”

I know it seems what Us did here was innocent enough, but guys. Come on. It totally wasn’t. Jess “also ditched her beloved high-calorie margaritas” and “Simpson, who plans to breastfeed through July”? They’re totally making us draw the conclusion that Jess had been drinking during her pregnancy and/or while breastfeeding her daughter, Maxwell Drew.

Now, I might be a little bit biased because I love Jessica so much, but this is just a low blow. If you’re going to out-and-out accuse the girl of imbibing and feeding her daughter the spoils of her breasts, just come out and say it. Don’t pussy-foot around it and pretend like that’s not what you’re trying to say, damn.

Do I think that Jess was drinking while breastfeeding, or even pregnant? Well, without knowing the girl personally, I’m going to go ahead and say ‘no’. I know a lot of people don’t give girlfriend a lot of credit when it comes to the brains department, but I don’t think that Jess is the type to do things that people are going to give her shit over, because why would she even want to hear it, let alone put her daughter at risk over something so trivial? No, I think if Jess really wanted to hit the cocktails, she would just stop breastfeeding and not care what people thought of her choice not to breastfeed—even if the choice was made because mom wanted to knock back a few adult beverages. It’s not like she’s ever really cared what anyone’s thought anyway, you know.

Can’t we just give this fine lady a break for a minute? God.

Quotables: Jessica Simpson is Losing Jessica Simpson’s Baby Weight for Jessica Simpson and Only Jessica Simpson

“Just so everyone knows…Weight Watchers hasn’t put ANY pressure on me! I’m trying to be as healthy as I can be for myself and I feel great!”

Jessica Simpson, taking it to Twitter and dispelling rumors that she’s cranky, under pressure, and unhappy about her post-baby weight-loss life.

I sure hope Jess genuinely feels this way, because she’s way too much of a sweetheart to be worrying about these kinds of things when there are so many more important things to think about—like her baby, the man that she loves wholly (for whatever reason; her own, I guess), the good, positive things going on in her life, and above all, her bright future.

One thing I’ve learned in my twenty-nine years of life is that as you get older, the more important things present themselves to you in such a way that it’s hard not to take notice, and easier to disallow the trivial and petty things from dictating your every decision.

I’m so in your corner no matter what happens to you, Jess, and I think you’ve got a healthy way of dealing with everything that you’ve been dealt so far. Love you, girl!

New Photos of Jessica Simpson’s Baby!

Well, ok, it’s just one new photo, but I promise it’s adorable. Look:

Man. No offense to all the other babies I’ve ever seen, but little Maxwell Drew Johnson has got to be one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen. Those huge eyes, that precious little pout, those cheeks! I can’t think of another human who has had such adorably puffy cheeks. Well, maybe Lindsay Lohan, but that’s neither here nor there.

It’s completely understandable why Jess doesn’t want to leave her daughter to go to the gym now, isn’t it? If I had a choice between working out and pinching that baby’s face, I know which one I’d prefer.

Good Morning, It’s Jessica Simpson!

So here’s a photo that Jessica Simpson posted on her Twitter a couple of days ago, along with the caption “Just taking a walk around the block. Street legal?” It’s just one little picture, but for some reason, I’ve been seeing it everywhere. It’s on all the blogs and all the news sites, and I just can’t imagine why. I mean, it’s only a picture of her ridiculously, overwhelmingly ginormous boobs. What’s the big deal?

But hey, what a way to start the week, huh?

Jessica Simpson Is Supposed to Lose 50 Pounds in Five Months

A photo of Jessica Simpson

From In Touch:

Jessica Simpson is not wasting any time working on losing the baby weight! In Touch has learned that the new mom is hitting the gym hard – with five trips to the gym in just two weeks! “She is as focused and determined as ever,” Harley Pasternak, Jessica’s trainer, tells In Touch.

But Jessica looked downright exhausted as she left LA’s Bodiworx gym on June 12, her fifth trip in fourteen days. “She’s so emotional,” a friend tells In Touch. “She doesn’t want to leave her baby. Sometimes she just starts crying. It’s hard for her.”

After reaching 210 pounds during her pregnancy, it seems taking a break is not an option for the 5’3″ star. With Weight Watchers paying her $4 million to slim down to her goal weight of 130 pounds — and a plan to marry her fiancé, Eric Johnson, by the end of the year — Jessica now faces the daunting task of losing approximately 50 pounds in five months.

“Jessica wants to set a good example for Maxi,” the insider shares with In Touch. “She wants to teach her daughter to have a healthy lifestyle.”

That makes me really sad, the mental image of Jessica Simpson crying because she doesn’t want to leave her baby, but feeling that she has to because of this obligation to lose a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time. I wish Jess would just tell Weight Watchers to keep their $4 million – it’s not like she really needs it anyway – and do everything at her own pace. Unfortunately, I don’t think that will ever happen.

I think it’s very important to teach your children about having healthy lifestyles, but everyone always seems to forget about the emotional aspect of health. Sure, Jessica’s getting in lots of exercise, and yeah, she’s eating healthily. But if she’s to the point where she cries like this? That doesn’t sound way healthy to me, guys.

What do you think?

First Real Photos of Jessica Simpson Post-Baby

You’re kidding, right? This is Jessica Simpson a whole six weeks after birthing her baby girl, Maxwell Drew? You’d think by the way some people talked about her during her pregnancy that she’d be the size of a damn house. Of course, I knew better. I was one of the few who thought Jessica was an absolutely adorable pregnant lady, and I didn’t really fuss all too much about her size. When you have a lady who’s got a naturally large rack and couple that with the fact that she’s not a steel pole to begin with, you’re going to look a hell of a lot curvier than you normally would on a non-pregnant day.

Jess only started working out over the past week or two, because—ahem—unlike some people, she actually allowed her REAL Cesarean incision to heal, and often times, doctors suggest you wait the six weeks before engaging in any kind of strenuous physical activity like exercising.

Looking good, Jess. Looking even better than most people probably figured you would at this point, and doesn’t that make you feel good? Even though, you know, you shouldn’t even give their opinions a second thought. Most of us love you just the way you are, special lady.

First Photos of Jessica Simpson (Aside From the People Cover Where They Photoshopped Her Into Having Two Left Armpits)

Because honestly, what was that thing? It looked like a vagina trying to lay low underneath the strap of her nightgown.

This is Jessica Simpon’s first documented public appearance since the birth of her daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, last month, and I’m sad to say that she’s all in hiding. Our photo agency captioned the pictures “Jessica Simpson on her way to the gym,” and I guess that’s way better than captioning it “Jessica Simpson on her way to a maternity-clothes-designing board meeting,” because we all know how that business is going to turn out.

Anyway. From Us Weekly:

Over a month after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew, Jessica Simpson was photographed out and about for the first time in Hollywood. Sitting in the passenger seat of a car alongside her personal assitant, the 31-year-old fashion designer’s mission wasn’t a Frappucino run or a shopping spree. Smiling in a black top and oversized shades, the star was en route to the private gym of celeb trainer Harley Pasternak, who has worked with the likes of Halle Berry, Hilary Duff and many others.

Pasternak is the perfect coach to help Simpson with her admittedly daunting task. The 5-foot-3 star admitted to weighing 170 pounds when she posed nude and pregnant for the April issue of ELLE magazine — and now, she’s looking to fulfill a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers to shed that weight within a year.

“As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out,” a confidante told Us Weekly shortly after Maxwell’s birth. (Maxwell, Simpson’s first child with fiance Eric Johnson, weighed 9 lbs 13 oz at birth.)

“She hasn’t even thought about working out for a year!” the source continued last month. But if she wants this, she’ll need to work out a good five days a week.”

And in her third trimester, Simpson was already beginning to worry about the impending challenge. “She was clearly nervous about how she’d bounce back to normal,” another friend told Us.

So she’s taking it easy. That’s good. It’s definitely nice to know that not every celebrity out there is weight-loss-obsessed during their entire pregnancy, and you know what? She’s beautiful no matter what she looks like below the neck.
