Jessica Simpson cuts $3 million deal with Weight Watchers



tbd-jessicasimpson120711.jpgSay what you want about Jessica Simpson -- that she's settling for a fiance, that she can't hack Hollywood or a music career, that she yo-yo diets so much her name should be Duncan -- but she is one shrewd businesswoman. Word is she's already gotten a guaranteed $3 million to lose her baby weight. That's right, getting skinny after she gives birth will be her job.

The New York Post says Simpson has signed a deal with Weight Watchers for $3 million. The foodmakers are the winners of the Jessica sweepstakes, as the paper says several weight-loss programs tried to cut deals with her. Of course, that's a drop in the $1 billion bucket her clothing line nets for her.

"The deal is in place, and after having her baby, she'll start with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight," a source tells the Post. That works out great for her, because she plans to marry Eric Johnson right after the kid arrives. That's great, because then they'll have their own little flower girl or ring-bearer.
