Jessica Simpson

Professional Fat Person

Jessica Simpson -- Professional Fat Person
Jessica Simpson
is now getting paid for being fat -- the singer just announced ... she's the newest spokesperson for Weight Watchers.

Jessica made the announcement moments ago on her Twitter, writing, "So excited to be a part of the @WeightWatchers family!'

Jess don't come cheap neither -- the Weight Watchers deal is reportedly worth $4 MILLION.

The singer reportedly gained 65-75 POUNDS during her recent pregnancy -- and Weight Watchers must be waiting for a big reveal ... because Jessica hasn't been photographed in public since she gave birth.

WW also released a statement, saying, "We’re thrilled that Jessica Simpson has chosen to join Weight Watchers to adopt a healthier lifestyle and inspire others to do the same."

TMZ as usual being bratty and immature, showing who their favorites are. I think Jessica is a beautiful woman, seems to be a very nice person, and is a billion dollar fashion empire now. Anybody jealous? She's deliriously happy right now and doesn't care one bit what TMZ is blathering on about. As far as spokespeople for weight loss companies, there are many of them. DId you make fun of Queen Latifah? Prince Andrew's ex-wife? Jennifer Hudson?

Wish I could get paid to do the program. I can't afford it. Hope she does well with the free program and the 14 million.

I know she is pregnant but holy **** she is huge! If she put on a green dress people would try to mow her. WATCH OUT! Jessica is hungry!

Weight Watchers has all this money to pay people because you dummies don't except who we really are.

Good for her! She will look great when she is done with the program just like Jennifer Hudson and Valerie Bertinelli.

It looks like she devoured the cheeta herself to make a coat big enough.

What is a measly 4 million since the media loves to go on and on about her billion dollar fashion empire of stripper shoes. It will be a good excuse for some more plastic surgery as well. Maybe even bigger fake boobs!

$4M to lose baby weight, which you're (hopefully) going to do anway. And THIS, people, is why the lady is a great businesswoman.
Still can't sing, though.

This is not new information. It has been in the new for awhile that she was going to be a spokesman for
Weigh****chers.

I joined Weight Watchers but not because of any celebrity. You are able to eat your own foods and it is really about portion control. They should pay me a real person who doesn't have chefs cooking for them or a personal trainer. Jessica is no inspiration.
