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?

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?

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.

1First 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.

10Jessica Simpson’s Baby Photos Are Here and She’s Not Talking About Her Rapid 60-Pound Weight Loss, Either
… In this week’s issue, Simpson and Johnson give an exclusive interview, plus share the first photos of their little one, who’s inherited her mom’s eyes and her dad’s calm demeanor.
“We stare at her all the time,” says Simpson. “We can’t get enough!”
But becoming new parents hasn’t been without its hardships. Recovering from surgery – Simpson delivered via C-section – isn’t easy, she says, and nursing, which she does throughout the day, has become “a full-on job.”
Still, “It’s the worst if I have to pump and give Eric a bottle to give her,” says Simpson. “I miss holding her and having that closeness.”
Oh man. Can we talk about the C-section thing? The “Simpson delivered via C-section [which] isn’t easy”? Because I know, I did too, as a lot of you regular readers probably know. And you know who else did? Yeah, I know: I’m gonna bring her up again. BEYONCE. Yeah, she recovered from a C-section, too, and in a quarter of the time that it normally takes other women to recover, naturally. Beyonce recently claimed that she lost sixty pounds in the weeks following her pregnancy, and it was all due to diet and exercise, but if you’ve ever had a C-section, you know that exercise just isn’t really a feasible option for quite awhile. Timeline of events? I had a baby in late February. For the first 10 days after the surgery, I could barely sit up and get out of bed without taking it way easy, and even then, I had quite a bit of pain doing so (and I’m no weenie when it comes to pain, guys). About a week after that, the pain had ceased, and after another week, the discomfort and thought of “Oh my God, I’m going to reach for something in a high cupboard and a kidney might come tumbling out,” had been considered at a minimum.
And six weeks after that, though my doctor told me at the six-weeks post-partum mark I’d be officially “cleared” to exercise, is when I decided that my body felt alright enough to go and do side-bending, heart-pumping cardio to the point where I didn’t feel like I’d tear in half if I happened to shimmy my hips during Zumba or Pilates. All at our own paces, right?
But this post isn’t about me, and it’s not about Beyonce—though every damn time I hear anyone talk about a C-section, I naturally think of her and her amazing one-week recovery and running and losing half a person in no time flat—this post is about Jessica Simpson, how adorable her daughter Maxi is, and how wonderful she looks on the cover of People.
Way to go, girl!

From Radar Online:
Jessica Simpson has done a deal to sell her daughter’s first pictures for an incredible $800,000.
The Fashion Star judge has brokered the impressive amount in return for People magazine running exclusive photos of the tot, according to Women’s Wear Daily. The 31-year-old star, whose celebrity fashion line is reported to have earned her one billion dollars, gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Maxwell Drew, by fiancé Eric Johnson on May 1.
Simpson’s huge payday still ranks her well behind other celebrities who hit premium pay dirt with their progenies. Matthew McConaughey and his girlfriend sold the first photos of their newborn son Levi to OK! magazine for $3 million. Jennifer Lopez is thought to have received $6 million from People for the first look at her twins. And the same publication reportedly gave Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt around $11 million for the exclusive on their twins Vivienne and Knox.
First of all, wait a damn minute. These magazines are paying 3, 5, 7, 11 million dollars to be the magazine to claim FIRSTIES on celebrity baby photos?! Consider me completely floored. It’s not as if no one’s ever going to see those babies anyway. Spending such an exorbitant amount of money on photos of babies who are not going to be babies forever is just completely beyond me. I mean, how many more people are going to buy your magazine because there’s a picture of a celebrity baby in it? My point exactly.
Also, why is Jessica Simpson‘s baby so much less important than the babies of Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey? Come on! Jessica Simpson’s baby trumps all of those other silly babies. I’m disappointed that People couldn’t do better than a measly $800k, aren’t you?
