Will Jessica Simpson postpone her wedding because of weight gain?


These are some new photos of Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson at last night’s Adele concert at the Greek Theater in LA. Lots of celebrities came out for Adele – Christina Aguilera, the Glee kids and SPARKLES! I love that Sparkles loves Adele. I love that Jessica Simpson loves Adele. Everyone loves Adele! Yay! As for Jessica, at first I thought she had chopped off her hair and dyed the back hot pink… but these are just really fug earrings. Disappointing, I know. For some reason, I kind of think Jessica would look cute with hot pink hair, and I generally hate that look on adult women. For Jess, I’ll make an exception, though.

By the way, you can’t see much of Jessica’s body in these photos, but to me, she actually looks slimmer than she has in the past, which means that she’s actually following The Tracy Anderson Method effectively (unlike Kim Kardashian, who is gaining weight with The Method). Still, in last week’s In Touch Weekly, sources claimed that Jessica was considering pushing back her (alleged) November wedding because she hadn’t lost as much weight as she was expecting:

“Instead of losing weight, Jessica has gained it,” reveals a friend. The problem is that between planning the perfect wedding and running her $1 billion fashion empire, Jessica’s been running herself ragged.

“She works so much that she doesn’t have the time to spend with Tracy Anderson,” explains the friend. Jessica has been so busy, she’s also neglected her diet, and the weight’s crept on.

“She’s always eating on the go,” adds the friend. “She gave herself one year to get in perfect shape, but now the wedding is just a few months away – and she’s panicking,” reveals the friend.

Jessica is so distraught about her failed attempts to say no to tasty treats, she’s even considering pushing her big day back.

“She was rethinking her plans because she fears that she won’t look good in a wedding dress,” the friend reveals.

Jessica was planning a wedding for November 11, 2011, but with three months to go, she’s having serious doubts that she would be ready. “She wants to postpone,” confirms the friend.

Which is a problem – since Jessica and Eric have already block-booked rooms at the ritzy St. Regis Princeville Resort in Kauai, Hawaii, and charters a private jet to fly out their guests. So instead of giving up, “Jessica is going to put everything on hold until she sees if she can lose the weight and get her body in perfect shape for her wedding day.”

Eh. I really hope Jessica isn’t as worked up about her weight as the tabloids are. Even when she’s heavy, she’s still prettier than most girls, and I think, shock of shocks, Jessica actually found a guy who doesn’t care what her dress size is. Eric loves her and her bank account, just the way it is. That being said, I do wonder if Jessica is actually going to get married in November. Does anyone else think that Farty might be rethinking the whole thing for non-weight-related issues? I don’t know, it feels like it.


Look how good her legs look – Farty is working the program! And this guy photo-bombing Jessica and Eric is ridiculous.

    that is one unattractive man!

  2. Pyewacket says:

    Sorry, but the dude in the back is cracking me up! Love his facial expression. It pretty much sums up my thoughts on Simpson and her husband to be.

  3. Liz says:

    Ugh, I cannot believe she has made an enormous amount of money with a fashion line! She has the absolute WORST taste!

  4. thinkaboutit says:

    She looks the same to me, but I don’t think she really cares about the weight. If she did, my guess is she would be thinner. It’s pretty simple.

  5. NeNe says:

    This chick has no taste. How the heck does she have a clothing line. It makes no sense.

    She’s just going to face it that she may never be as skinny as she used to be, but than again, who is?? It’s called getting older.

  6. Happymom says:

    If you can tear yourself away from looking at how awful she looks-wtf is HE wearing??? He looks like he ran out to the driveway to get the paper at 5am, and then kept going . . .

  7. Emma says:

    She’s been very skinny before, so she knows what it takes. But, maybe she’s just like ‘screw it’ now. She can still be made up to look pretty, get a little definition in her arms and use some Spanx for her waist all without killing herself to drop 15 pounds. All in all, she’s still a pretty girl and we all know she’ll look very decent on her big day.

  8. ladybert62 says:

    So she is running her own fashion line – making all those day to day difficult decisions about marketing, designing, corporate structure etc – sure, sure. Nope dont believe that one for a minute.

    She has a pretty face but still looks dumb as dirt to me.

    Get the wedding over with Jessica, your body is never going to meet the perfect criteria someone set for you – accept yourself as you are and just do it.

  9. debbie says:

    why all the clenched fists?

  10. Saskia says:

    She looks fine to me. Honestly, her biggest problem is (as always) deeply unflattering clothing. Even her shoes are unflattering to her leg shape. Girlfriend can’t dress properly to save her life.

  11. brin says:

    Do you think she wore those earrings to match his t shirt? I do.

  12. Lila says:

    Well, what is he doing all day? She should make it his job to follow her around with healthy food. At least then he would be doing something…

  13. Moops says:

    She doesn’t look like she’s lost much, if any, weight. Her legs always look good – it’s her face and neck that still look heavy. Jess wants to look good in the pictures at her wedding. We all do. And she has the added pressure of wanting to sell those pictures, and having the world scrutinize her. So yes, I think she’d push things off until she looks slimmer.

  14. Ashley says:

    He shoes are 2 size too small for her, none of her toes are actully sitting on the shoes…
    The guy in the background as “Pyewacket” said is so funny to look at.
    I like the way that she dosen’t feel like she needs to put on tons of make up like (KK) to come out of the house. So what happend to the 11/11/11 wedding date?? Maybe post ponded till 12/12/12.
    She can loose at least 20 ponds in 2.5 months.
    If she is delaying this wedding it must be becuse the guys is backing off or something like that….

  15. Skins says:

    God, he looks like such a tool

  16. Anon says:

    Jessica’s problem is that she doesn’t carry her weight well. She carries the extra weight disproportionately. But as somebody else mentioned, maybe she is like f*ck it when it comes to getting back to her Dukes of Hazard weight. I used to be super skinny on a very strict diet and exercise program. I am heavier now, but I’m happy at my weight and don’t feel the need to put that amount of strain on myself any longer. And anyway, why do people make such a BIG A$$ DEAL over a wedding?? People care more about a damn ceremony than the reason behind it. These marriages never last anyway, so I don’t get it. People just doing stuff for the sake of doing it I guess.

  17. the original bellaluna says:

    Those ear-rings defy description. I. Can’t.

    Dude in the background is CLASSIC. Loving him!

    Jessica’s problem is she doesn’t dress for her body type. And she’s not the only one, so I’m not bagging on her.

    Jess, honey, just embrace yourself (hard, I know) and have your regularly scheduled wedding. Enjoy your love, enjoy the day, enjoy it all. The MARRIAGE is what’s important, not the ceremony.

    Perfection is un-attainable.

  18. jacq says:

    Love the photo-bomber! Body language analysis, please… What’s with all of the fisting going on there?? (Lol)

  19. really says:

    ham hocks and neckbones!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. mimi says:

    I’m going to get slammed for this but…yeah, Jessica could lose a few pounds. Getting heavy is not part of getting older. It is part of not eating right and getting enough exercise. In the U.S., you have to be very careful about the food you buy/eat. So many are loaded with hormones and antibiotics which add pounds and other nasty stuff. It is so sad how fat this country is getting. Nobody seems to give a crap about their body anymore..

  21. Rachel says:

    how does a girl who runs a 1 billion dollar fashion empire not know how to dress HERSELF!? what a shame..

  22. gee says:

    11.11.11 is my 24th birthday. Funfact.

  23. Cirque28 says:

    Eric looks stoned. I think he’s giggling about going home later to eat pizza and cheez whiz. (He won’t even need to change.)

    And why does Jessica think heels so high she can hardly walk magically make her tall? No, they make you a short person on stilts.

  24. Jen says:

    She definitely looks so much nicer without all the heavy make up piled on. And damn she has some killer legs!

  25. Paley says:

    Can’t tell in these pics, but recent pics looked like she was pregnant.

  26. Kasey says:

    @jacq- interesting they’re BOTH holding their fists like that. Maybe they both are holding something small in their fists? Maybe they are both trying to pass gas? Maybe they are both trying to not pass gas? Maybe they are both passing gas loudly? Maybe they are both passing stinky gas hence the photo-bomber’s facial reactions?

    In other recent pictures I would have been convinced she was pregnant and confused on why she was hiding it. But I think she’s like me (quickly and easily puts it on in the boob, tummy and face and just as quickly loses it in the legs). I agree with Kaiser, in the pictures her legs look pretty good. I can’t tell for sure because of this black shirtdress getup but I think she may be losing weight. Maybe just a lot slower or more difficult than she expected. THAT is part of getting older. You can still look good and keep it together but it gets harder and requires more effort.

  27. Lana Moon says:

    They are both GROSS, GROSS, GROSS!!!! I agree, it’s hard to believe that this UNFASHIONABLE WHALE has a fashion line.

  28. Firecracker says:

    I think she looks great.

  29. Truthful says:

    is she clenching her fist because she doesn’t want to be photographed??

    LOL, poor Jess

  30. Hautie says:

    I don’t know why Jessica is insisting on marrying again. Just live with the boy. Geez it is not as if anyone cares.

    And after he made an ass of himself at the lawyers office about the prenup. She needs to realize, he is not a keeper.

    But I am surprised Eric finally bought a new pair of pants. I bet he has been hoarding his allowance in case he gets dumped. 🙂

  31. Thea says:

    I dont see these two ever getting married. He is slimy to me and god love her, she is so simple. I know, she made a zillion dollars, she just has good people working for her.

  32. Camille says:

    Pair of fugs.

  33. Sue says:

    I don’t think her pushing back the wedding has anything to do with weight gain, it’s more like Jess back herself into a corner by publicly getting in engaged so fast to one up Nick and now she having seconds thoughts and doesn’t what to look like a fool with the public and media saying I told you so.

  34. Moreaces says:

    Oh Jess, I almost forgot all about you. Your weight Im sure should not be an issue. If you were even still revelent, I would maybe agree. just stop being so desparate

  35. palermo says:

    Yeah sure, she runs a major corporation. She looks dumber than a rock. He’s a bum, why would she want to marry him any way, just cause her ex got married?

  36. Cirque28 says:

    @Kasey #26: Maybe they are both passing gas loudly? Maybe they are both passing stinky gas hence the photo-bomber’s facial reactions?

    LOL! That poor photo bomber is holding his breath.

    The girl does look better without so much makeup. Nice complexion!

  37. Nikki Girl says:

    She looks so bad in that third picture. Well, she looks bad in all the pictures, but especially that third one. Jesus.

    Don’t forget, I’ve pointed it out again and again, just because your legs look skinny does not mean you’re in shape! Jessica Simpson and I have almost identical bodies: we’re both short, have big boobs, skinnier legs, and we gain all our weight in our guts. There are many of us in the world that, no matter how much weight we gain, our legs remain on the skinnier side. Notice she always wears baggier shirts, but short shorts? Because she likes to show off her skinny legs and hide her chunky belly.

    However, I don’t really believe this story. And moreover, the real problem here is that she’s insecure and desperate and even wants to marry this freeloading loser!

  38. Nikki Girl says:

    @mimi: Actually, it’s a proven fact that metabolism slows down the older you get, so for a majority of people, gaining weight IS a part of getting older. This is evident in different countries all around the world, not just the U.S. Also your tirade about fat people was a little unnecessary.

  39. Jessica says:

    The REAL problem here is Jessica’s freeloading looser leech of a Boyfriend.

    At least her last two boyfriends/former husband had interesting jobs.

    Seriously, I’m glad she is no longer on the cover of magazines……. What the Hell would she talk about?

    Eric is nothing to talk about….. He’s boring and she’s very stupid to actually want to marry this guy.

    IF they do end up getting married, I predict a divorce.
