Jessica Simpson must have been really worried about losing the weight and $4 million (Dhs14.5m) for her Weight Watchers campaign as she reportedly tried to cheat by getting surgery but was rejected... twice! “After her daughter [Maxwell Drew], Jessica felt there was no way she could lose the weight on her own as she has struggled so much in the past and her post partum weight seemed to be growing. So, like a true Hollywood girl, she sought out a quick surgical fix – lap band surgery,” an insider told Radar Online. But the two doctors she approached allegedly advised her against going under the knife.
Talking of her drastic weight gain, Jess admitted to USA Today, “I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant, and I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted to be happy and eat what I wanted. I didn’t realise it didn’t all come off with the baby.” Wow. That’s up there with her Chicken of the Sea moment from Newlyweds. She also told Extra that her weaknesses were sugary foods like Pop-Tarts and Cap’n Crunch. No wonder she gained 70 to 80lb! After hiring personal trainer to the stars, Harley Pasternak, Jess lost 40lb but is struggling to shift the rest. Best hit the gym, Jess!
