OMG you guys! Honestly – I know I’ve been flip flopping a bit on this whole Jessica Simpson weight issue thing, but now I think I just hate her. First I said that she had to come out of hiding because if you sign a multi million dollar endorsement deal to lose your baby weight (thereby encouraging other women to do the same) then people should actually SEE YOU LOSE THE WEIGHT! But then she made her first public appearance and she looked great and I thought ‘good for you – not every celeb can be a size 2 mere weeks after giving birth’. And then she went and screwed it all up because now she’s just treating us like we’re stupid. And WE ARE NOT STUPID!
Listen, I get that as a celebrity she was paid millions of dollars to lose weight. Something that many of us actually pay others to help us do. Whether you have a trainer or use a diet system we don’t get paid to lose our baby weight nor do most of us have nannies and cooks and all the time in the world to exercise like Jessica Simpson has. And still I was ok to let it go because her baby is small and sometimes it takes some time to get back in the rhythm of things. But now she’s gone too far. Instead of admitting that she was a lazy glutton who just simply ate too much crap while pregnant and therefore gained way too much weight while pregnant, now she’s treating us like we’re stupid. Because she’s not a supermodel and she’s just like you and me and she no one can tell her what she has to weigh. Have you seen the new commercial yet? Here – watch it first then we’ll discuss.
OMG punch me in the face if I have to watch that crap one more time. ‘Im not a supermodel, I’m just Jessica’. Really? I mean, really? How about the fact she insists on not showing her body at all in the commercial. So this is a woman who wants to sell you a weight loss product but she’s not ready to show you how it actually works because she doesn’t want you ‘comparing yourself to her, but rather to be inspired for your own Weight Watchers journey.’ In other words she didn’t lose the weight fast enough and was too embarrassed to show her body in the commercial so she made them shoot her from the neck up. THE NECK UP!! Then she appeared on Katie Couric’s new talk show and spoke about her weight gain saying;
‘I thought my doctors were telling me that it was just a lot of water and whenever my water broke my whole entire stomach would go down but that did not happen. All the weight did not come out with the baby.’
Seriously? Is she stupid? Or does she think we’re stupid because we’re buying this. Because no doctor, looking at how much weight that woman gained when pregnant, would tell her that was ‘water weight’. But now she’s supposed to be a role model for other women who are having trouble losing their baby weight. Kind of how Jessica Alba wants to be known as a celeb mom now, Jessica Simpson also is trying to appeal to the very lucrative ‘mommy market’. Let’s be smart about this and not make Jessica Simpson the face of ‘real women’ everywhere. Please.
Here’s Jessica at the airport yesterday thinking that if she shows off the girls it might distract from the rest of her.
