Jessica Simpson's overeating finally pays off

Jessica Simpson is on the verge of signing a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers. 4 million, coincidentally, is the same number of calories she's eaten over the past year (for you people bad at math: yes, that's a lot). From Us Weekly:
Jessica Simpson is in talks with Weight Watchers for a $4 million deal to shed pregnancy pounds, Us Weekly has exclusively learned. Simpson -- engaged to ex-NFL star Eric Johnson -- had initially intended to sign with the company to lose weight she had gained over the past few years.

"But then she got pregnant," says the source. "So this was the perfect compromise."

Under the contract, Simpson would have one year to use the point-counting program to "lose a significant amount of weight," says the insider. She's then show off her results in ads for the company -- much like current spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson.
If I were Weight Watchers or Eric Johnson, I'd throw in a breach of contract penalty. Well, maybe not Eric Johnson. I mean, talk about a lucky break. If it wasn't for Tony Romo's scraps, Eric would be pumping gas in the Philippines right now. Anyway, I'm sure that Simpson will lose the weight in a year, but on the 366th day she'll gain it all back. All of it. All on the same day. Probably all in the same Cheesecake Factory. But hey, even if she does and Johnson does what we all know he'll do eventually ("It's not you, Jessica, it's me . . ."), she'll find another overrated NFL quarterback who lives on potential but has never shown it. Michael Vick is in between convictions, maybe he'll be next in line.
