Jennifer Hudson thinks Jessica Simpson is “lazy & not serious about getting fit”

People have been so focused on Jessica Simpson’s farcical Weight Watchers contract that we’ve forgotten the last WW spokesperson who caused a lot of controversy: Jennifer Hudson. When J-Hud got with the program (the WW program), she lost a lot of weight and it felt really sudden. After she lost the weight, it was pretty much all Jennifer could talk about, and she even admitted that she was “prouder” of her weight loss than of her Oscar (for Dreamgirls). Last year, I was of the opinion that Jennifer had actually lost too much weight, and while her body looked good, her face looked pretty drained and un-J-Hud-ish. True story: I’m looking through the recent photos we have of Jennifer, and I think she’s gained some weight back. And you know what? It looks good on her. Anyway, this weeks’ Star Mag (via HL) has a typical girl-fight story. Jennifer Hudson versus Jessica Simpson!

Jennifer Hudson is not impressed with Jessica Simpson‘s 40 pound weight loss — the former American Idol star has lost 80 pounds and thinks Jessica’s diet “has been a colossal joke,” according to a source in Star.

Ouch! According to Star, their source claims “Jennifer is frustrated with Jess and how she’s handled her weight-loss fiasco. She thinks Jess’ stab at dieting has been a colossal joke. Jen said that Jessica still looks fat despite an enormous $4 million incentive to lose weight.”

Jennifer has reportedly been a great support system for Jessica, calling her multiple times a day and FedEx-ing her diet diary to Jess.

“Jennifer thinks Jess has been lazy and not serious about getting fit. Jessica obviously didn’t put in the work,” the source said.

Apparently, Jennifer is done trying to be nice and helpful to Jess.

“She’s written Jessica off as a total mess. Jennifer is definitely having the last laugh.”

[From Hollywood Life]

Er, is this the kind of situation where you can have a “last laugh”? I mean, it doesn’t sound like Jessica was actively being a bitch to Jennifer. Jessica is just… Jessica. She farts a lot and she loves to eat. It’s harder for some girls to commit to a diet simply because they don’t have the willpower or inclination (raises hand). Jennifer took to the WW program like a duck to water, because that’s who she is – organized, committed, driven. Jessica IS lazy. Which is fine, except that she’s getting paid $4 million to be on a diet and work out. Which means that Jennifer is right – Jessica’s WW contract IS a fiasco, a joke, and a damn mess.

    I highly doubt Jennifer cares at ALL
    about Jessica. Look at Jenn, she’s successful in every way that Jessica is not.

    • marie says:

      completely agree, she’s got too much going on to worry about Simpson..

    • FinallyFr33 says:

      You really think Jennifer Hudson is more successful that Jessica Simpson?!?! Really! Ture,Jennifer has an Oscar and she is trying to make a plus-sized clothing line for whom? Her style is terrible. Her albums suck..when was the last successful one she had…I’ll wait. At least Jessica has a awesome fashion empire. Her singing career is off too, but she is definatly more successful than J-Hud. Prune-face lost all cred with me when she was “I love being a big girl!” then lost all this weight and was telling the world “Be like me”. She looks awful.

      • dcypher1 says:

        I think jessicas fashion line sucks. I wouldnt buy anything from her line. I wss at macys the other day her shoes are just loubutain ripoffs and her hand bags are eh.

      • Dorothy#1 says:

        @finally fr33 I agree! Jennifer lost a fan in me when she told Adele to lose weight. Who does she think she is????

      • HadleyB says:

        Wether you would buy her shoes/clothes or not her line is successful.. she has everything from shoes, jeans, clothes to accessories etc and they DO sell well.

        Both their singing careers are gone right now, but just because you won an Oscar doesn’t mean you are successful. Can Jenn act better than Jessica? Sure, but what is Jen known for other than playing a fat girl singer in a movie, and getting lap band and claiming it was all WW?

        She has mean girl syndrome from being teased and mocked about her weight and now is another Kelly Osbourne slinging out advice, calling out anyone who needs to a lose a few pounds and thinks they are a fashion icon , and is deluded about their looks — greatly.

        She is an icon — for lap band.

      • KellyinSeattle says:

        Well, I think Jennifer wears too much makeup and should be quiet about telling people what to do….and by the way, I have a terrible time with getting a good bra, but Jessica’s line is fabulous!

      • katsrulz says:

        Totally agree with the Adele comment! Perhaps Jennifer needs to focus on herself instead of other women. It sounds like she is just being a typical Mean Girl and now she has something to hold over other women.

      • PinkG says:

        I don’t believe Jennifer lost all her weight via Weight Watchers. I think she had some additional help from a few doctors.

      • Jeje 30 says:

        I so agree

    • Stacey says:

      Ha! I think Jessica is too busy counting her 100 million to worry about Jenn and her need to be in the news.

  2. mln76 says:

    Yeah I’d be pissed about this especially if Jessica got a bigger paycheck and didn’t apply herself (we know she didn’t). Honestly its not soley a matter of weight its like if you accept 4 million dollars wouldn’t you feel obligated to put your best effort in? I don’t think she took it seriously if she’s not in a frame of mind to loose all the weight she should give back all the money NOT do some BS commercial from the neck up.

    • Canda says:

      Exactly. There’s nothing wrong with being heavy, if that’s what works for you, but you don’t make a big deal about losing a ton of weight for four million (MILLION!!) dollars, and then refuse to show off your “after” pictures. I know Jess is still pretty overweight, anyone with eyes can see it from her commercial how fat her face is still, and she won’t show anyone her body. I would be annoyed too that miss FancyFart refused to follow the program… I’m sure it’s not the easiest thing in the world, but calories in vs. calories out DOES WORK, end of discussion.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        The $4M is for a job, a job that she *seemingly* hasn’t put her outmost effort into. So yeah, I personally see it as a failure on her part.

        I would have had so much more respect for her if she passed on the WW endorsment deal and lost the weight (or didn’t lose the weight) quietly.

        EDIT: some are saying she’s losing 1-2 lbs a week and that’s all WW promises?? Anybody know if this is correct? Don’t know mucvh about WW except that it seems like a lot of math!

      • SallySue says:

        @TheOriginalKitten They say at Weight Watchers that 1-2 pounds a week is the ideal (and healthiest) weight loss. For nursing mothers they suggest a 1 lb a week goal and increase their points by quite a bit. I think the idea behind the small-ish weight loss goal is to lose it gradually so it’s easier to keep off. When you lose weight really fast, it can be easier to gain it back. If you start losing weight too fast, they might adjust your points to be sure you’re eating enough.

    • erika says:

      besides fried oreos jess is full of s***t

      here here, i’d be pissed TOO and i already AM pissed!!! think of it this way, if this Jess, was your co-worker and at bonus time she got a huge bonus for slacking off, making excuses and you got like 7% of what she got, wouldn’t YOU be pissed????

      i hope to Hell she did not get that 4M, she’s selfish, fat, lazy, greedy and DUMB.

      i cring when i see those WW commercials. You know, the American public is NOT that stupid!!!

  3. cmc says:

    Team Jennifer on this one. Thy probablay paid JHud way less than Jessica, but she actually earned every penny with hard work. I’d be annoyed too. Actually, as someone who lost 80lbs a few years ago (and have kept it off!), I’m annoyed. No one paid me, I got it done.

    • Liv says:

      Ugh, Team nobody here. Jennifer Hudson should just stop talking about weight in general, it makes her look limited. And Jessica Simpson is just Jessica Simpson.

      • alc says:

        Nicely summed up Liv! The only thing worse than a smoker/drinker/addict/fat person is a reformed smoker/drinker/addict/fat person.After they see the light, they make it their personal crusade to preach to everyone about how they have been saved from whatever. Nobody likes to be told what to do. And I’m kind of sick of these companies hiring celebs to show how to weight loss. It isn’t realistic for those of us out here in the real world. And when are we going to stop being consumed by how we look and what others think about us. Have women not moved passed that yet?

      • katsrulz says:

        I totally agree! I’m tired of hearing Jhud talking about weight and judging other people. Everyone is different and she needs to get off her high horse. It’s getting to the point where I would LOVE to see her gain all that weight back so she would STFU!

      • bluhare says:

        If Jessica Simpson gets that eff%#g@ Jennifer Hudson weight watchers commercial off TV, I’ll be team jessica.

      • Sassy says:

        I once worked at an office where almost everyone was doing Weight Watchers. They all had bowls of carrots at their desks for the occasional hunger pang. It was boring to listen to everyone touting their losses and eating all their veggies. I couldn’t stand it. I was slim, however. The weight loss I witnessed was amazing, however. It really works. I think it is the only plan that does work.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Congrats on losing 80 pounds! That’s like a fifth grader or something! $$$ would be nice but you have other rewards – and you don’t really want to be Farty, do you?

    • blonde on the dock says:

      That’s awesome cmc. Keep up the good work. I really admire ppl that can lose that much weight keep it off and care about their health.

    • lilred says:

      I think it’s entirely possible she is jealous because Jess got paid way more that she did for the WW gig,and if that’s the case she should have negotiated a better contract.

  4. People lose weight for different reasons and at different paces. People overeat for different reasons as well. It’s all well and good to go on a plan to lose weight, but if one is compulsive overeater, the weight will not stay off or come off easily unless the underlying root of the overeating is addressed. So if this is true, Jennifer Hudson needs to take a seat and let Jessica Simpson find her own footing.

    • SueD says:

      Really well said.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah totally agree with what you said but isn’t there a built-in portion of the WW contract that puts a timetable on how much she has to lose and by when?
      I would think that would be an imperative so that they can structure the weight-loss promos/interviews etc.

      This is why I think she should have never signed on for the WW contract. I get the lure of $4M but does she really need the money? She just seems like someone who loses weight at a slower pace, and probably doesn’t do too well facing the pressure of losing X amount of weight in X amount of time.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        The weight watchers program is not time specific, so I don’t think that their contract would be too time specific. It would probably be more along the lines of follow the plan, talk about your “journey,” and reach your goal at some point, maintaining for a specific time period. I know when I lost my 68.5 pounds on weight watchers (and have kept it off for 10 years now) it was slow going because slow and steady is the best way to lose weight as well as psychologically cope with the weight loss. A lot of people who do drastic diets/lap bands/etc have so much difficulty with body image and acceptance because it wasn’t gradual, with the body taking on a different shape over the course of a year or so.

    • katsrulz says:

      YES! Love it!

    • Roxy says:

      Honestly, all you have to do is eliminate wheat and bread products from your diet. Americans have “Wheat Belly” and its an epidemic. Look it up. Bread is why America is fat! “Wheat Belly” book/blog. Amzing enlightening informative! Woke me up. My daughter has lost 20 pounds in 7 weeks!!! And she only wants to lose 25, she thought it would take 6 months!! Its amazing how much bread stays on your waistline. The wheat and bread we eat nowdays is not the same bread our parents ate. Our bodies cannot digest it so its stored as fat, right around the middle!! Google it! It will change your way of eating. Whole grains is a BS line, thats what got us all to this obese state!

      • midnightmoon says:

        yes ma’am! i also had horrible gut & joint pain, IBS and brain fog. after getting serious about eliminating gluten, boom-gone! it is not easy to avoid gluten. i am now on 90% veggies home cooked and i’m feeling soooo much better. lost 40 lbs, gained back 10 but look like i lost 30 more since the gluten free mission. amazing. A 30 year mystery solved and now i get to have my life back. Don’t know how i’ll replace all the lost income but i will for sure be living a happy life. Btw, if you do decide to go gluten-free, it needs to be all the way. It takes gluten at least three months to clear out of your system. And those buggers are in everything, so restaurant and processed foods are not an option. However, it is amazing and thrilling to have a future of functioning, sleeping well and enjoying my body ahead of me. As i mentioned before, i just turned 55, and i feel like a teenager again. It would very likely scandalize you fabulous celebitches if i told you what i’m up to these days. Now that i CAN, i am going for my new life with great gusto-so goodbye gluten forever!

  5. gee says:

    If Jessica is losing .5 – 2 lbs a week, she is doing what WW promises. I can believe she’s within those parameters.

    • Annie says:

      I agree. I’m not sure why Jess is getting all this criticism about how much weight she has lost thus far. Seems she has lost an adequate amount if continues to lose will have fulfilled her WW contract. I think it’s healthier to lose it slowly- gotta listen to your body

    • Rachel says:

      Yeah, I don’t really get why people are saying Jessica hasn’t lost enough. She had the baby less than six months ago and she’s lost 40 pounds. That’s actually a pretty huge number. I lost 30 pounds in about that time frame for my wedding last year and it was DIFFICULT, and I’m much taller and younger than Jess. Gained it all back, though – now I’m trying to lose again, and I’d be thrilled with her results.

    • Violet says:

      Not only that, but Weight Watchers recommends that breastfeeding mothers lose even more slowly — only up to a pound a week, as per the guidelines by set by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

  6. Christine says:

    Wasn’t Jennifer rumored to be a lap-band surgery patient, who shilled for WW too? Her comments about her being more proud of weight loss than an OSCAR, as well as telling Adele how to lose weight, make me think she is an arrogant, self-righteous jerk to other women.

    • Sharon says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. The rumor was out and it still makes a lot of sense to me. Jennifer was constantly saying how she was proud of her body and the way she looked and then poof she loses 80 lbs and FAST. I just don’t buy it and i really think she needs to stop talking about her wieght loss and do something, anything… you know like her hit albums and her acting roles that actually won her an Oscar? people only know her for her weight loss now (which i maintain that came from surgery) I also don’t buy this feud story at all.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:


      • Christina says:


        Jenifer is that rarity – a young female star who actually has talent, and quite a lot of it. And yet she thinks her greatest achievement is not winning an Oscar – which only a tiny number of people ever will – but losing weight, which just about anyone can do (especially with a surgeon’s help…)

        I’ve always wanted to like her, because of her genuine talent and the dignified way she has dealt with an unimaginable tragedy. But after that airhead comment, I’m finding it much more difficult.

    • Brown says:

      I have always been a conspiracy theorist when it comes to Hudson’s weight loss. I think she had lap band to lose the weight initially, and is probably following WW now, but has been disingenuous about the fact that WW was the method by which she shrank (seemingly) overnight. The weight loss was so fast, and her deflated appearance is typical of one who has undergone weight loss surgery.

      They are both on my nerves at this point, so whatever.

    • Macey says:

      I always heard that as well. Jess also had a baby, JH did not.
      Everyone’s body is completely different so anyone judging anyone on weight loss needs to mind their own bodies.

      That said, Jessica’s WW commercial is soo annoying. Her voice drives me nuts, gotta mute that thing.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        What about JHud’s commercial? LOL “Birds flyng high, you know how I feel…” ugh I always hit the mute button when that one plays…has gotten soo old!

      • BeesKnees says:

        JH did have a baby and if I remember correctly, people said it took so long for the media to realize she was pregnant because she was overweight.

      • anon33 says:

        AWESOME AVIE BEESKNEES!!! baltimoron here!! lol

    • Dani says:

      100% agree. Who would have thought it would take longer to lose weight through diet and exercise than through a lapband? I think Jhud should reevaluate who is lazy.

    • Annie says:

      The overly drawn,too skinny face that she sported is usually a sign of weight loss surgery

  7. Mew says:

    Whether this story is true or not, I see her public image changing from sweet and nice girl into mean and evil diva. That’s not good.

  8. p says:

    Jennifer Hudson should not lose any more weight. She’s fine where she is. Jessica on the other hand has a ways to go yet. She has all the advantages, time (to workout, eat right), money (to hire chef’s, nutritionists and trainers, babysitters, nanny’s), There really isn’t any reason not to have already achieved her goal.

    • anon says:

      80 lbs in less then six months is rediculous if you think she should already achieve that. Come on.. realness means something right

  9. Maritza says:

    Jennifer Hudson would look better if she botoxed those wrinkles beside her mouth,they age her a lot.

  10. mommak918 says:

    im due with my 2nd son in a matter of days…I have put on 40+ lbs and have eaten relatively healthy. Jess had her baby in May. I hope when people see me 5 months down the road (at a wedding Im in) that people wont think im lazy or fat because my baby weight will not be all off. I will be nursing all hours of the day/night, not sleeping, working, managing my two year old and running a household. (my husband works 90 hr weeks). I realize Jessica has all the tools to have success but sometimes weight is stubborn and there are other priorities.

    • mln76 says:

      First off no one thinks you are lazy or fat for gaining weight while pregnant. The issue is accepting 4 million dollars for an endorsement deal and then claiming its not about weight loss. If she didn’t want the focus on her weight she should not have taken the moula. She’s greedy and playing the maytr out of hypocrisy.

      • Erinn says:

        Plus… it was Jessica’s job to lose weight. She signed a contract. And she can certainly afford all the nannies she needed to spend time exercising, or she could take her daughter for walks or whatever. She also has the ability to pay someone to cook her all the healthy meals she wanted. The reason people get on Jessica is because, as mln said, she’s literally being paid to lose weight, and can afford all the necessary help to do so. She’s not a normal person who has to do all the things you have to do in the run of a day.

        Good luck with the big day!

    • megs283 says:

      Hey girl, screw them!!!! I think there will always be some meanie in the crowd, but most people won’t even think twice. My coworker gained 50 pounds while we worked together and I had no clue (I thought she had gained…10?). So don’t fret. You will look fabulous, regardless of what you weigh.

    • Micki says:

      I had my second son 14 months ago.When he was 8 months old I started going to sport studio.3 times a week a 1.5h. Tailor-made programme and diet and so on. In 6 moths I gained 2,5 kg muscles and lost 0!! kg fat.
      I can slap Jennifer for being such self-righteous bitch because weight loss is such an individual thing.

  11. Sabrine says:

    This story sounds completely made up.

  12. Charlotte says:

    Jessica needs to stop lying about her numbers. And Kirstie. And Gaga. And…probably all the rest.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I doubt Jennifer cares what Jessica is doing, and even if she did, I don’t think she’d be foolish enough to bad mouth a fellow WW spokesperson.
    Jennifer looks great. She’s been a good example for the WW program.

  14. Jennifer says:

    I’m in the lap-band conspiracy camp. Jennifer lost that weight VERY fast. She needs to STFU.

  15. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    I sorry people but I can’t stand this woman….her commericals come on TV and I turn the sound off ..she gets on my nerves so bad…Why because something about her screams FAKE…FALSE….shes to smooth tight….lost weight to fast to just be Weight Watchers. alone….because if you loose weight that fast no amount of excerise will make your body that tight…that fast…and besides now her head looks to big for her body….
    As for Jessica Simpson …sorry but shes loosing weight at the right amount per week to keep it off as recommended by Weight Watcher themselves…..because she didn’t go for the quick fix doesn’t mean shes lazy….and it seem Jennifer didn’t get payed 4 million so she just a little spiteful of the fact….
    She reminds me of that black lady off “The View” that lost all that weight Starr whats her face……She was a beautiful bigger woman and then she had her stomach stapled and lost all that weight and now she looks awful..Her head is to big for her body and she is wrinkling all up like a prune… that is Jennifer when she gets older….

  16. Carolyn says:

    Oh I doubt Jennifer is calling Jess and Fedexing her things. The lies these PR people write! Maybe WW now thinks any PR is better than nothing, now that they’re not getting their expected ROI on Jess. Jennifer has been roped in to play good cop?

  17. TK says:

    Isn’t Jessica still a work in progress? IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO LOSE WEIGHT!!! So until a full year passes where she doesnt lose any more weight, im calling her in-progress story a success. Jessics Simpson is losing weight. Period. who cares how much, shes losing it.

    • smartyparty says:

      Weight loss the right way takes a very long time! I have lost ten pounds in a week from starving and other cray-cray methods. And guess what happened after one more week? BAM, weight was back. slow weight loss is the only way to have it stick.

  18. Cathy says:

    If it’s in Star Magazine, it has to be true. We know they are the authority on every celebrity.

  19. jaye says:

    I don’t buy this story and I hate it that it is pitting these women against each other. As far as people who believe JHud had lap band surgery…even if she did, she’d still have to change her eating habits in order to lose weight. WLS is not a magic bullet…you still have to eat right and exercise, so JHud using WW as a tool to lose weight is plausible even as someone who had surgery.

    • katoato says:

      Except that the whole point of bariatric surgery is to reduce the size of the stomach to the point where discomfort results from eating more than a small portion of anything. It physically reduces the amount you can eat by a tremendous amount. You don’t really have to change what you eat or have willpower – b/c you’ll throw up if you eat more than a handful of anything. Restricting the size of the stomach is the whole point.

  20. Alexis says:

    Even so, she should keep that to herself; she knows what it feels like to be at the center of stupid snide comments like that and it took Jennifer FOREVER to lose weight even post fame.

    I don’t know how these things get out, if she was just talking among friends about Simpson (which is fine, people talk) or if she was careless about her company while talking.

  21. anon says:

    Jennifer lost 80 lbs in over a year.. Can we not give Jessica the same chance. it is said she has lost at least 40 in the not quite six months. Why must we insist that Jessica is not allowed the same benifit with WW as others. Is is because she inked the 3-4 million dollar deal which means she is to lose it faster & not the heathy way. I kinda expect Jennifer to deny this.. Again Star has taken some real hits at Jessica this week. Can we not see the agenda of Star mag & be fair about it?

  22. fabgrrl says:

    Why are former fat-girls so preachy? Looking at you, Kelly Osbourne (or is she back to chubby again?)

  23. Bonfire Beach says:

    STFU Jennifer Hudson. I used to like you until you became a skinny narcissist. Prouder of your weight loss than an Oscar? Way to shoot for the stars. Besides, anyone can lose weight but not everyone can stop being a mean douche.

    • Kyre says:

      Preach it! Bravo! Best comment yet.

      Only follow up: shame on Celebitchy for standing up for the fat-shaming narcissist.

    • Vesper says:

      A narcissist does not forgive the man who killed her mother, brother and nephew’s killer.

      Reading all these catty comments about Jennifer makes me wonder about all of the people who seem to forget the horrific tragedy this woman has gone thru.

  24. Eleonor says:

    I liked Jennifer Hudson, but now not that much because it seems her career is talking constantly about weight loss.
    Didn’t she tried to talk with Adele at the Grammy’s??
    I think Jessica was greedy for accepting that contract with WW.
    If she is on the program, and in this moment for her it’s difficult to lose weight it’s something she has to respond of.

  25. Sandra says:

    As a woman who has struggled with her weight all her damn life, which include a couple of stints in the Weight Watchers machine, I empathize with anyone who’s struggling to take off the pounds. I can’t imagine how much more difficult it must be to shed the weight post-pregnancy when your body has changed so much and you’re maybe not inclined because you’re still in pain or just want to spend all your time with your new baby.

    I’m not annoyed with Jessica Simpson because she’s failed to take off the weight – these things take time. I’m annoyed because she genuinely doesn’t seem interested in taking it off, despite a $3 or $4 million incentive. I don’t believe she ever should have signed the contract, having never given birth and not knowing what her motivation levels would be like post-baby. I’m sure it was all well and good at the three month mark to sign on the dotted line, but six months and one cute baby later, circumstances changed. She was greedy and gambled on the fact that she’d be good to go immediately, which, if you have half a brain in your head, you’d realize is just not realistic.

  26. ladybert62 says:

    Ms. Hudson needs a new hairdo and stylist. That hairdo is horrible; those lips and that lipstick are horrible and that outfit is horrible including those cheap looking earrings!

    And I am glad someone else is finally doing a weight watchers commercial as I got really sick of listening to her preach to me about losing weight. Go away Ms. Hudson.

  27. littlemissnaughty says:

    Uh, this sounds fishy. I can totally see Jennifer seething in private IF she was paid less than Jessica but other than that … I don’t know.
    If it’s true … god, both of them need to stop. This constant talk and focus on who can lose how much how fast is driving me insane. And btw, if Jennifer really said that, well, girl, losing weight too fast isn’t healthy but neither is gorging yourself on fried stuff during pregnancy. So I’m team No One.

    Is it me or is the weight topic getting out of hand? Can’t these celebrities just stick to entertaining us? I’m so annoyed.

  28. smartyparty says:

    I kind of don’t buy that JHud really had anything to say about JSimps. But enough people sure do and it’s a shame. Jessica has lost 40 POUNDS! It’s a big accomplishment. And she is modeling the WW program which, as someone stated above, is .5-2 Lbs per week. I just started WW 2 weeks ago and have lost 8.5 Lbs, but I know that the weight loss will slow down and so I see Jess as a real example to look to. If at the end of the year she has lost another 40 I will feel very encouraged by her!

    Also, about the weight loss being a bigger accomplishment than the Oscar for JHud – I can understand. If you are someone who has battled weight your whole life, finally getting it under control must feel amazing. She may have been someone who beat herself up about her weight all her life, felt unwell from her weight, let it hold her back, etc. Therefore losing it may be the greatest accomplishment for her mind, body, and spirit.

    No matter what, I am proud of these ladies and proud of myself. I wish there was not derision between them, I hope it’s not even true.

      Who knows how much weight Jessica has really lost? She says 40 lbs. but, she says a lot of things. She may have lost some weight, but it doesn’t look like anything close to 40 lbs. She still looks huge.

  29. srm says:

    I have never liked Jennifer Hudson for some reason. She seems very smug. And just because you sing loud doesn’t mean you sing well. I never watched her season of American Idol though.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      “And just because you sing loud doesn’t mean you sing well.” HAHA yes x 1000! So true.

      • tommy says:

        Except that JHud can do far more than just “sing loud.” She can sing up and down the whole musical scale, I think that’s pretty impressive.

  30. Sherry says:

    I’ve been on Weight Watchers since July 1 and have lost 20 pounds so far. I also run 30 minutes a day.

    The thing I like about WW is that I can eat food I like (though I do eat Vegan for breakfast and lunch most days). I save my “extra” points for date night with my husband or a treat on the weekend.

    At first, I was losing about 2.5 pounds a week and now I’m losing about a pound a week (with a couple of weeks where I didn’t lose anything). I would love to still be losing the 2.5 pounds a week, but a loss is a loss and I’ll take it!

    I still have 30 pounds to go to reach my goal weight and WW does work, but you have to follow the program and I wonder if Jessica is.

    Another day in Paradise………
    She said …..She said…….
    Hip Hip Hurrah!!

  32. Dee Cee says:

    Mom’s only obligation is to be there for her baby and to enjoy the experience too..

    • Vesper says:

      She signed a contract to lose weight with Weight Watchers. Legally, she has to fulfill her obligation. If she didn’t want such an obligation she shouldn’t have signed a binding contract.

  33. diva says:

    I swear I read somewhere Jennifer got lap band surgery or something. Which makes WAY more sense on how she lost the weight fast. I don’t believe any of these celebs who claim to use weight lose programs (even my lovely MC). Its bs.

  34. Kyre says:

    Hey Ms. Hudson, STFU you fat-shaming, judgemental bitch.

    Glass house, Ms. Hudson. A bullet-laden glass house. Remember that’s where you come from. You aren’t making fans with your holier-than-thou comments.

  35. Jess says:

    Why doesn’t she talk about her morbidly obese sister?? She butts into other people’s weigt issues but it seems like she should worry about her own family first.

  36. laura says:

    Come on…jessica just had a baby recently! I think it is much more important that she focus more on the baby less on the weight!!! Jessica is beautiful, this is crazy…Mrs hudson seems very limited and so superficial, it makes her quite ugly!

    • Vesper says:

      If Jessica truly wanted to focus on her baby she wouldn’t have signed a $4 million dollar contract with Weight Watchers.

      Even with her limited intelligence, I’m assuming she can comprehend the fact that to fulfill her contract she has to lose weight, and to lose weight she has to work out, and to work out, she would inevitably have less time to spend with her baby.

  37. HappyJoyJoy says:

    If someone offered me 4 million dollars to lose weight and then brag about it on national tv after I’d be shacked up in the gym 24/7 until I made good on my word. You can’t lose weight unless you are motivated to do so; Jessica doesn’t seem to be in the game at all. Wearing an outfit that camouflages the problem areas is NOT losing weight. J-Hud took it seriously (and a bit far, since this is all she’s become since, a number on a scale) but at least she made good one her word. With that said, I wish she’d move on. Everyone already knows you’re skinny, girl. You can do other things too.

    • connie says:

      Be that as it may, and deSpite my agreeing, if Jess did do this then everyone wouldbe complaining of her atypical results as a product of a lifestyle most women can’t afford. So really, no matter what,people are going to have something to say. I really couldn’t care less, but don’t understand the vitrol for Jess taking the money,I place that blame on ww for choosing an easy spokesprrson rather than someone committed to the beliefs of the brand. Their goof

      • HappyJoyJoy says:

        I beg to differ, WW is actually quite affordable. Much cheaper than gastric bypass. I think it’s like… 11 dollars a week or something like that. So to say it’s unattainable isn’t really fair. Of course she has access to trainers and chefs, I see where people would call her out on that. The thing is she has the accessibility to these things and doesn’t take advantage plus she gets four million dollars. I agree, it’s WWs goof, but if you know you don’t want this right now why sign up for it? it’s not like she’s not making money while just breathing.

  38. Relli says:

    WOW lots of Jen hate. That’s too bad, kind of disappointing to tell the truth.
    I think another factor in her massive weight loss was the tragic murder of her mother, brother, and nephew. Sadness doesn’t bring the munchies on for everyone.

  39. eileen says:

    I don’t see JHud caring either way. She has tons going on. I think this story is BS.

  40. Memphis says:

    I think the story is probably BS and I don’t personally care about Jessica’s weight.. But when you accept 4 MILLION! dollars to lose weight and be the spokes body for a public campaign, you lose the damn weight and don’t do a a half assed neck up commercial because you couldn’t complete your contract due to your own laziness and lack of willpower, Period.

    If you don’t want to lose weight in the public eye, and don’t want to lose it fast, don’t accept 4 MILLION dollars to do so. Simple.

  41. Brenda says:

    How do people know that Jessica is unmotivated? She’s only been on the program for like 4-5 months, 40 lbs seems like a pretty good weight loss to me in that time. I’ve seen pics from when she first started working out and she’s definitely lost some weight. 18 weeks at 2 lbs a week would be 36 lbs. I’m sure she didn’t start the moment she had the baby.

    Also, the commercial clearly states she is starting her journey with WW. She has never once said she was at her final weight. I don’t get why people are so eager to call her a failure so soon after she started. Give the girl a chance.

    If she lost weight too quick, people would be claiming she had surgery. She couldn’t win in this case I don’t think. People act like she’s the first person to be a paid spokesperson.

  42. OXA says:

    Jennifer Hudson forgets what it is like to be fat when she herself was a HEFFER when she did A.I.
    She was also very far along in her pregnancy before anyone even noticed the bumpor knew. Maybe she was losing her blubber suffering morning sickness or on Weight Watchers or was it Lapband surgery or the shock/grief of her family being murdered.
    She grieved, had her baby and was not burdened with millions of people watching her or making derogartory comments on her weight. I am disgusted that she would do this to another woman/mother, it reeks of jealousy and pettiness.

  43. Shelly says:

    I can see how Jennifer would be peeved, if the store is even true. However, I still think Jessica looks way better than Jennifer. Jennifer’s face has never looked the same since she dropped all of that weight.

  44. I Choose Me says:

    Kinda hard for me to reconcile the J-Hud who forgave her mother, brother and nephew’s killer with this bitter, judgmental person who calls out Adele and Jessica for being fat. Not saying it’s not possible but I seriously doubt this is true.

    That said, holy crap are Jennifer’s weight loss ads annoying. I have to turn the channel whenever one of them comes on. She’s a talented lady. I’d like to see her in another movie. Surely she’s got more going on for her than just weight loss?

    • jaye says:

      But to be fair, it’s the tabloids saying she made those statements. I think it’s very possible that all of it is BS.

  45. vanessa says:

    I think Jessica is lazy. I think she’s one of those women who think it’s okay to eat whatever you want with no consequences. Maybe her parents didn’t teach her the importance of exercise and eating healthy for health reasons instead of vanity reasons. I think if she weren’t in the public eye she’d be another fat girl in Texas.

    • Vesper says:

      I guess her parents didn’t teach her about proper hygiene either. She has admitted she doesn’t shower regularly or brush her teeth. She’s a lazy, dirty, dumb as dirt hick.

      And for those who will no doubt respond that dumb girls don’t run fashion empires. Jessica does not run a fashion empire. Vince Camuto runs a fashion empire. He purchased the right to market Simpson’s name and brand worldwide in exchange for royalties. Jesica makes no decisions regarding design or marketing in Camuto’s company.

  46. Lulu says:

    Jessica is still nursing, right? She shouldn’t be expected to shed the weight fast. In fact her body is trying to fight it to make sure she can make plenty of milk. The diet she is on sounded way too calorie restrictive to me. Her metabolism will not likely respond the way she wants it to until she either swans the baby or the nursing comes to it’s natural conclusion. For me, that ended up with me fighting to keep on some weight, so you never know.

  47. F5 says:

    Hudson should continue what she started with plastic surgery cause she looks awful.

  48. Annie says:

    Got to say team Jennifer here. Jessica really doesn’t seem that into her diet and fitness plan despite a ridiculously high financial incentive. Sure, she’s lost a little bit (don’t believe 40lb tho) but here’s the trouble: She seems to be expecting that merely getting back to the weight she was just before she got pregnant is enough effort, when in reality she was already hefty then. If I was WW I’d be expecting a far more dramatic body overhaul from her than that for 4 million. I really do think Jessica is just lazy and doesn’t care that much about health.

  49. xoxokaligrl says:

    I don’t usually comment but seriously, so many haters…

    Jennifer Hudson has been skinny for as long as Jessica Simpson has been fat…

    Meaning I wouldn’t take advice from some girl who just barely lost weight when shes been fat all her life.

  50. Isabel says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Hudson has lost too much weight? Her head looks way too big now and her jawline looks to sharp to be that skinny. It just looks odd and very unnatural, this weight on her.

  51. choppersann says:

    Thank you Annie!! I don’t believe she’s lost 40 pounds either!!! Was wondering when someone was going to call her out on that!

  52. bigt says:

    Am with Jennifer on this if in fact she made the comments. How can someone compare Jennifer to that no talent trash bag Kelly O. who can’t sing dance or act.

  53. katoato says:

    Bariatric surgery. Way to go J-Hud with that famous willpower. Wish there were an eye-roll icon.

  54. Jane says:

    I think this is funny to read considering Jennifer Hudson was a fat mess herself and now she’s got this holier than thou attitude. News flash. Jessica Simpson still got 4 million dollars. And she was still hotter in her prime than Jennifer Hudson will ever be. I guarantee that ex-fatty will never make the top 10 sexiest women list in her life, and Jessica Simpson tore up the Maxim Hot 100 chart for years. Someone is a HATER it would seem, which is just as ugly as your once fat-now skinny-still ugly as all hell self. Did you hear what that chick said to Adele when she won best female artist? Jennifer Hudson – YOU WERE FAT YOURSELF. And WAY fat. Just because youre jealous losing weight STILL didn’t get you fame doesn’t mean you need to try to insult other people because you’re insecure. What a loser.

  55. Gi Gi says:

    she lost her fat self weight when she was ready.
    Jessica is doing it in her own time.
    Slow and steady wins the race & even if she didn’t
    she is still prettier than fat mouth jennifer

  56. Gi Gi says:

    SHUT HER HORSE-n if she didn’t
    she is still prettier than fat mouth jennifer
