Jessica Simpson Wants Bucks For Baby Announcement


Nothing comes free anymore. According to The NY Post, Jessica Simpson is not going to publicly say a word about being pregnant until she gets at least $500K from a tabloid. Baby photos to be negotiated separately. Until she gets that amount, the clothes will remain large and whether she is or is not will remain ambiguous. I am probably wrong, but I am still not even convinced she is pregnant. Of course as I say that some tabloid will probably say she is. And no, I do not count OK! Magazine's cover as confirmation. They would say Brad Pitt is pregnant if they thought it would sell magazines. Is she really hurting for money that much where she has to sell a pregnancy announcement because if celebrities start getting $500K just for saying they are pregnant, I think we can safely say that Lindsay would seriously think about jumping on that bandwagon.

Personally I don't care. Magazines save your money !

If that's true, I hate our world.

shehla said...

Haha! I doubt she is hurting. I'd do the same thing as her, especially after all the 'Jessica is fat' magazine covers.

Ms Cool said...

She can pay me $5 and I'll announce it for her.

msgirl said...

Sure hope not a single magazine will pay for her "announcement" or baby pics.

Princess said...

Didn't they just announce recently she is or nearly is a billionaire because of her clothing line/product deals? I can't see her needing the 500k for the story. Gotta call BS. She may be pregnant, but doubt she is holding out for money.

Jamee said...

Come on, Enty. You of all people know she doesn't NEED the money. It's called GREED.

Jamee said...

...people in Hollywood rolling in money don't do things because they NEED the money. They do it because it they CAN.

She looked very pregnant in the pix of her at the airport with her mom. That wasn't a fat belly, that was all baby belly.

Well...I guess she needs the money to pay for her dead beat fiance. He's probably sucking her bank account dry.

...and she can only play this game of "am I or am I not preggers" for money, cause if she is...eventually it will show and big clothes won't be able to hide it.

I think she's pregnant for real. For a minute I thought that maybe she wasn't going to sell out her child before they were even born. Others have done that. It gets obvious at some point that it's a baby and not just buffet weight. One doesn't need to acknowledge it. But no, she's not only going to sell the story but also has a minimum price. When is her reality show coming on, anyway? I originally thought she was probably going to time the announcement with the start of the show for more publicity. Barf.

bluebonnetmom said...

She does not need the money, but Papa Joe is a greedy bastard, so I am sure this offer is for real. And yes, Baby Daddy/Deadbeat Fiance is probably pretty expensive. lol ; )

Mother Campfire said...

Dude, the jig is up. The world already knows.

Susan said...

And I wouldn't be surprised if she pushes a line of baby clothes or maternity clothes. And there will probably be a reality show in the mix because you know, just enjoying your pregnancy in private with loved ones is SO not Hollywood.

Jessica Simpson needs more money like a need a hole in the head. She is a bazillionaire not so much on her singing talents but on her clothing and shoe line. Girl is set for life unless she really is stupid, but I always felt the stupid thing was an act.

She's got pregnancy face. I think she's with child.

Maybe she'll donate her earnings from the tabs to a charity? I don't know, if I were a rich celebrity that got paid for this trivial shit that's what I would do. Maybe having a baby will make her realize that there are so many children in the world who need that money more than she does.

Deep said...

@Princess- she may be worth a lot of money but that doesn't stop her from being greedy and wanting more!

Dulcinea said...

I think at this point it's less about the actual money, and more about status. "If so-and-so can get paid, then so should I, because I am as big of a celebrity as they are?"

califblondy said...

I wanna blame daddy dearest for this one.

RJ said...

This sounds a lot more like a Papa Joe stunt than something from Jessica. I don't blame her for not wanting to give anything to the tabs for free, though. They sold a ton of issues by putting unflattering photos of her on their covers and calling her fat. Then constantly portraying her as having been "dumped" by her various boyfriends. I also doubt that her boyfriend is bleeding her bank account dry. If anything, he is probably helping her grow her wealth. People seem to forget that he was accepted into Warton Business School which is a very big deal. People, including Enty, try to portray him as some lazy giggalo, but I think he is probably an asset to her, and not just in the relationship department. Plus, it doesn't seem like he lets Joe stick his nose into her business as much as past boyfriends have.

ms_goddess said...

Yeah, I read in another article it's Pimpa Joe who's doing the shopping for baby dollars.

Feisty said...

Joe's hustling so he can get his fee. It's not about getting money for HER, it's about getting money for HIM.

And RJ, I hadn't thought of that before, but it's a good point that Eric is probably a decent manager. Maybe she'll pull a Beyonce and dump her dad as her manager once she gets married, and Eric can take over.

Why she would need to get married in order to do this is a whole other set of issues. I hope this Eric guy does a good job taking care of her.

anita_mark said...

Of course it's her father who's shopping the story, Jessica isn't smart enough to do anything on her own.

I don't believe she's a billionaire. It's hard to become a billionaire. Multi-millionaire, sure but not a billionaire. It hasn't been proven, I think her gross father leaked that info so she wouldn't seem so desperate.

I don't give a shit if she's pregnant or not and I hate the idea of magazines paying for stuff like that. Why does anyone care? Women get pregnant all the time.

The whole time I'm typing this, I can't stop staring at the picture of LL in the story below with that line of blush. What was that?

Robert said...

@anita_mark: I hear you. We live in a culture where every aspect of life is profiteered into meaning nothing but a big fat payday for somebody.

RocketQueen said...

Agree with the other posters this is about Papa Joe getting his cut. I doubt Jessica gives a shit. She's probably just floating in a cloud of bliss right now, eating whatever she likes.

And please, what these tabloids should be doing is scraping together $ to pay off Lindsay to NOT become a mother. Ugh. Can you IMAGINE?? A mother like Lindsay and grandparents like Dina/Michael??

bloodonthescreen said...

It's probably Papa Joe's baby.

Sylvia said...

Greedy bitch...

SusanB said...

I thought OK magazine paid up and it's on their new issue. This kind of crap is why I stopped buying magazines (except Entertainment Weekly which I love).

Jeri said...

I agree with all the greedy papa Joe posters.

If no-one pays her and she doesn't announce it she'll probably become a saint for keeping her private biz private. When it's really all about money.

timebob said...

The ONLY reason I think she is pregnant is becuase her roots are about 3 inches long. Dead prego giveaway.

B said...

bloodonthescreen that is hilarious!

Lelaina Pierce said...

I'd be ok with this IF she were going to donate the money.

I think she might be overestimating her demand. :-/
