Jessica Simpson is back to eating grilled cheese & onion rings, because of course

Here are some new photos of Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson yesterday in Calabasas. Apparently, they were house-hunting and having lunch. This is how you know Jessica is pregnant – she doesn’t care enough to wear heels. This girl is always in heels! She wore heels through much of her last pregnancy, but I guess she finds them exhausting. I’m not judging. I always find heels exhausting. Does anyone else secretly love this huge black sweater or is it just me? Mm… I would live in that sweater. Anyway, you want more evidence that Jessica is pregnant? She’s totally off her Weight Watchers diet! Because of course:

Jessica Simpson knows how to make the most of a cheat day. The Weight Watchers spokeswoman — expecting baby no. 2 — went all-out at a December 2 birthday lunch for BFF CaCee Cobb, 35.

“Jessica ordered a grilled cheese sandwich with onion rings,” a fellow diner at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills tells Us Weekly.

As her friends toasted Cobb with cocktails, the mom to Maxwell, 7 months — who has yet to confirm her pregnancy — waved off her usual white sangria.

“Guess what?” she told her server, with a smile. “I’m drinking ginger ale!”

In anticipation of the baby’s arrival, Simpson, 32, and fiance Eric Johnson, 33, are in nesting mode: A source says they just made an offer on a house in L.A.’s luxe Hidden Hills!

[From Us Weekly]

“Her usual white sangria”? I thought Jessica’s drink of choice was Scotch with an Oreo pie chaser? But really, Jessica has been off of alcohol for a while. She stopped when she got pregnant with Maxwell, and then Weight Watchers kept her off the booze for her diet. Which was part of my diet too, when I started doing my “get my life together” thing a few years ago – stop boozing, and it makes a world of difference. So many empty calories in booze. So, I’m just saying, maybe the booze thing isn’t definitive proof that Jessica is pregnant, but the grilled cheese and onion rings probably are.

Also: those Uggs are so ugly.

    People don’t understand how weight watchers works.

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      Most understand that on WW you can still eat real food and many people use the point system ( my mom did this for years and stayed tiny ) so she -could- have a grill cheese and ORings if she wanted but that would most likely take all of her points for the day or calories if shes going that way. And girl likes to eat. So to most this would look like she’s jumping off the WW bandwagon since she might be preggers and we know how that went last time….

      • Riana says:

        WW also gives an allowance of about 20 extra points per week which an individual can use at any time, so pretty much you can go to a restaurant and have a treat without hampering your weight loss efforts.

        I see what you’re saying, I just think people are looking for a failure on her part.

    • Riana says:

      They certainly don’t if that’s their ‘evidence’ I was eating chips daily on WW and losing a ton of weight.

    • Bwwana says:

      Can someone please explain to me what the hell that guy does for a living apart from sponging off her? At least her last couple of boyfriends had their own money. She got sucked in big time with him.

  2. brin says:

    Ugh…bring on the buttered pop tarts.

  3. lori says:

    RE: the boots. My feet grew during PG and never went back to size. Maybe that explains the Gawd Awful boots.

  4. Tifygodess24 says:

    Oh The hair horror! Gurlllllllll do something with that hair. Seriously it looks like straw and roots are not cute , if I can keep up on root maintance so can you Jessica. Oh and a good deep conditioning treatment.

  5. Lucy says:

    Didn’t I read on here (or somewhere?) that she was trying to qualify for weight loss surgery? Surely she’ll be fat enough after this one!

    • Buckwild says:

      What do you need to weigh for surgery?

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      It was on here, but published by ok or star or ne. I can’t be sure which. It was more speculation, but it wouldn’t shock me if she was.

      For most weight loss surgeries it is a health factor more than weight threshold, but not all doctors adhere to that. And you have to take on a healthier lifestyle or the surgery will fail of you’ll end up malnourished because all your calories are empty of bad.

      Jessica is not a small girl. For DoH she publicly said she had to eat empty calories and work out daily because she’s a texas girl. Meaning everything is big in texas i guess.

      Isn’t her husband vegan? I wonder how he feels about her unhealthy lifestyle while carrying their child…

  6. Sharon says:

    That weave is ugly forget the boots!!! Damn girl looks a mess – I’m all about being comfy but damn she’s hot pills and lint all over herself, can’t she wear something comfy but not like ” I’m spending my Sunday on the couch in my Jammies comfy”? I really beleive she’s just lazy

  7. LisaMarie says:

    How many ewoks had to die so thos boots could be made?

    And I agree with @Tammy…weight watchers is pretty flexible. It’s a bit early to tell if she’s off the WW wagon completely

  8. sunny says:

    If she’s truly pregnant, doesn’t she have to stop bleaching the roots? She can be so tacky, but somehow I think she always looks sexy anyway.

  9. Lulu says:

    Grilled cheese sandwich and onion rings? I imagine Giselle is clutching her pearls as we speak.

  10. NerdMomma says:

    I never drank a drop of alcohol when I was breast-feeding…is she breast feeding? That would explain that.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      You can drink when breastfeeding. You have to pump extra bottles and put them in the fridge. It is something like 1 glass of wine to every 6 or 12 hours. I have forgotten the ratio.

      • NerdMomma says:

        Oh you totally CAN…but I am just too lazy to try to figure out all of the logistics. I had a couple of nights out with friends where I did the ol’ pump and dump, so I guess I shouldn’t have said I didn’t drink “a drop.” I should have said I mostly avoided alcohol. So I would have abstained at a lunch out, like Jessica Simpson. That said, I really don’t care if she’s pregnant again or not, or if she loses weight or not. She’s perfectly likable either way.

  11. some bitch says:

    Chlose your mouth, Jessica. She looks so ridiculous in these photos with her mouth ganging open in each one.

    • littlestar says:

      I agree! Ugh, she looks so disgusting with her mouth open. Either it’s because she’s saying “duuuuuuuuuuuh” because she’s Simpleton or it’s because she thinks the open mouth thing makes her look sexy. It’s just gross. I’m usually (for the most part) a fan of Jessica, but with her first pregnancy and her weight gain and unhealthy lifestyle and then the whole “why am I so fat” afterwards… Ugh, I just can’t with her right now.

  12. another bitch says:

    yes, can’t stand her mouth ganging open

  13. t says:

    We know Jessica is pregnant not because she is wearing uggs instead of heels, but because she called Us Weekly exclusively, and identifying herself as a “source close to Simpson”, told them she was pregnant. Jessica used a homemade voice distorter (mouthful of buttered poptarts)so the editor at Us wouldn’t recognize her voice.

    The real story isn’t whether Jessica is pregnant or not. The real story is why Jessica is alerting the tabloids to her greasy food choices the last couple of days.

    I think it’s because no matter what Weight Watchers is saying publicly about being one with her (for now), they have told her privately that they are done with her, and she is vindictive, so she she giving them the finger (covered in deep fried fish and grilled cheese) by publicizing her unhealthy food choices.

    At least she’s getting tabloid coverage, and that’s what’s really important to Jessica.

  14. Sam says:

    To be fair, I make some killer low-fat baked onion rings, and they can be pretty awesome. But I somehow doubt that’s what the article was referring to!

  15. AceMom2 says:

    Seriously….all-out? Because she ordered a grilled cheese sandwich & onion rings?? Gimme a break! It’s not like she asked to have it coated with funnel cake batter & deep fried for pity sake. What does that say about me….I had that for lunch this week too! Lol

  16. lucy2 says:

    One not so healthy meal at a restaurant doesn’t automatically mean she’s off WW. But I could see her going right back to eating what she did with the first one.

    Her hair does look terrible. I get subtle highlights and occasionally let my roots get a little longer than I should, but that is so noticeable.

  17. truthful says:

    She is wearing lint balls galore, I can see them without even trying…

    poor Jess, she’s on the fast track
    D O W N.


    one thing, she doesn’t get breakouts from all of the grease…I would.

    • CreamSoda says:

      Greasy food doesn’t necessarily make everyone break out, but sugar can be sneaky that way. I drink water most of the time, but if I drink soda a few days in a row I’ll start to see a few breakouts coming on. Back to just water and things start looking good again. Totally off topic, I know, but just had to share.

  18. Vesper Lynd says:

    Sigh…if having children wasn’t so expensive for us and if I had family around to help me once in a while, I’d love to have 2 more babies…sigh….if Jessica is preggers, I hope she enjoys it.
    I loved being pregnant…well, the second trimester was always a blast, I was over the morning sickness and had incredie surges of energy…not that I would go full blown Duggar, but I always wanted to have 4 children.

  19. Zigggy says:

    I totally want that sweater. Cozy.

  20. Diva says:

    I like that sweater. I’ve been looking for sweaters like that to go with leggings but I can’t find them anywhere (and I don’t have Jessica Simpson money) LOL

  21. DorothyZbornak says:

    Is it just me or does her man look just like Britney’s fiancee? They look interchangeable to me.

  22. lflips says:

    I will never understand people who use these various “diet” programs. Why not just eat whole, healthy foods in reasonable amounts? Just because you can eat grilled cheese and onion rings all the time with WW and lose weight doesn’t mean you’re healthy. Anyway, end of rant.

    • Erinn says:

      I think some of it is the cost factor. It’s expensive to buy a lot of vegetables, fruit and other healthy things like that where I live because we don’t have the growing climate for it. My mom did weight watchers twice, and it allowed her to eat things she could afford, but keep track of her points. It wasn’t always the most healthy, but she did at least try to eat healthy while doing it.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      I agree wholeheartedly. It’s really not that complicated but in this country most people think skinny=healthy.

      …on another note I think both Jess & fiance look trashy here.

    • Riana says:

      Because using common sense its a great way to lead people on the path of eating healthier, fruits and veggies as you suggested.

      Many people quit their diets because their attempt to go immediately cold-turkey doesn’t work and they struggle with cravings.

      WW encourages people to enjoy the foods they love while also learning to practice more portion control or substitute healthier choices.

      The more weight loss, the more energy gained, the more people begin to embrace fruits and veggies. WW also has a system where exercise can be traded for points, meaning if you really want a desert you instill within yourself the need to exercise more when coming high calorie foods.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      lflips- Yeah, what you are describing is basically my diet. Here’s the thing though-that doesn’t work for everyone.

      I think that’s what appeals to people about WW-you can tailor it to suit your personal tastes. For me, I can easily pass on a piece of cake, but don’t take my Friday night beers away from me or I’ll stab you.

      As Kaiser said, a lot of empty calories in beer/alcohol, not exactly healthy but it’s my choice.

      Some people don’t do well with giving up salt or sugar (or whatever they crave) cold-turkey. This allows them to have that stuff and still be accountable.


      My assistant is on WW and she looks great! I’m really proud of her for finally getting healthy.

    • anneesezz says:

      Because Whole Foods aren’t paying millions to her be a spokesperson. She doesn’t do anything without a pay day.

    • iheartjacksparrow says:


      I agree with you 1000%. As much as possible I follow the “caveman diet” and limit the amount of processed foods, fried foods, processed sugars, and junk food in general. I also exercise every day, and have a BMI of 19. All these “plans,” whether Weight Watchers or one of them where food is delivered to you, is not something anyone needs. Just eat a healthy diet and exercise.

    • Nina W says:

      A healthy diet does not have to be expensive, but it does take an investment in time and effort. Learning about proper nutrition and making manageable lifestyle choices are the most important keys to weight loss. Most people don’t realize how many empty calories they consume and as we age we stop burning it off and start packing it on.

  23. thinkaboutit says:

    Ugh, why is she DIRTY?? There are stains all over her leggings. And it looks like she DOES live in that nasty sweater…pills and lint and hair all over it. Ewww

  24. Sarah says:

    You know, people ridicule the Lindsay Lohans and Chris Browns of the world but at least they are thin and use a lint roller once and awhile, know what I mean?? I bet Lindsay sticks to lettuce for lunch like a normal person!!

    Jessica, lay off the real food, wear better clothes while house hunting, and just pull yourself together before you hit rock bottom and have a piece of cake or something! She’s seriously spiraling out of control and the onion ring lunch proves it.

    Of all the Hollywood issues, HERS is the Hollywood lifestyle that sets the worst example!

    P.S. Even if your in your 1st trimester, dye those damn roots, I don’t want to have to look at the hints of dark at the top of your head.

  25. marie says:

    I always like grilled cheese and tomato soup myself, best comfort food ever..

  26. Lio says:

    Lol….she has crumbs all over her leggings

  27. Shad says:

    ‘Scotch with an Oreo pie chaser’. I LOLed so hard at that.

  28. Mew says:

    “I eat all I want, om nom nom”
    *gives birth*
    “Ok, I had enough of binging, now I’m going to lose weight”
    *dieting is not fun, can’t be binging*
    “oh ffs…”
    *gets pregnant again*
    “Oh yeaaah baby, bring me everything on the menu double time!!!!”
    *goes on 9 months binge fest again*

  29. T.C. says:

    Grilled cheese sandwich and onion rings are not that big of a deal. Let her eat what she wants.

  30. LAK says:

    The meal isn’t a problem irrespective of what diet a person is or isn’t on if they largely make healthy food choices. However, this is jessica simpson we are talking about. The self-confessed human garbage disposal of bad food choices. With no shame, no restraint and no education to equate the negative consenquences to her food choices. So we can take this particular meal as an indicator that she’s fallen off the wagon because on her publicised ww diet program this kind of meal wasn’t allowed.

    For the record, her publicised ww diet also came with a chef and was so controlled as to not qualify as a ww points diet so with regards the weight loss, she cheated because it wasn’t the usual ww diet and philosophy more starvation and exercise.

  31. Madriani's Girl says:

    She looks like she has dragon breath 24/7.

  32. Isa says:

    I just can’t believe some people call that a fashion icon. She ALWAYS looks a mess. ALWAYS.

    It’s one thing to enjoy your pregnancy and spoil your self a little be and another one to go crazy like Jessica. All the unhealthy junk it’s not good for the baby. But I bet she is the type who goes crazy and doesn’t worry about her weight while pregnant because she has already thought of surgery.

  33. Isa says:

    I just can’t believe some people call that a fashion icon. She ALWAYS looks a mess. ALWAYS.

    Her man looks like he needs a shower. They both do.

  34. garvels says:

    This girl cracks me up. I like how she just does her own thing and could care less about what others think of her choices and lifestyle. She seems happy,so good for her!

  35. anon says:

    she definatley can eat grilled cheese & oniion rings in moderation.. it may have been her cheat as they call it which is also part of the diet. If people would just take time to actually read & find out about the diet or lifestyle change for eating they would be amazed at what is allowed for eating.. Of course because it’s Jessica she gets treated a whole lot different by many. She is not off her healthy lifestle eating at all.

  36. palermo says:

    Come on, if she is eating like that she didn’t learn a thing from gaining a ton during her first pregnancy.

  37. truthful says:

    sorry but lint balls have been my pet peeve, since childhood.

    and no, I do not like the sweater, I wear a 34DDD, it would make me look chubby.

    maybe I’d wear it in the house…
    I do like Jess, she cracks me up.

  38. claire says:

    She’s so sloppy. I just can’t with her.

  39. tmbg says:

    Those boots make her look like she’s 3′ or so. She has the long black line and then it’s interrupted by those awful boots.

    Why do people in L.A. even wear Uggs? Yeah, it gets cool at night and it’s not always hot during the day, but it’s never been cold enough in all of times I’ve visited to wear winter boots. (Family lives there.) During winters here when it’s 35 or so, Uggs are nice and warm, but as casual shoes, they would make your feet swelter.

    It’s amazing when you watch Newlyweds. She wasn’t eating birdseed back then, but she was in really good shape. Not a stick figure – just very fit and shapely.

  40. hatsumomo says:

    I wish everyone would lay the f–k off Jessica’s diet already. I mean, we get it, all the “perfect” ladies had perfect diets and didnt gain more than 5 pounds with their pregnancies and lost it all five minutes after giving birth. Get the f over yourselves already. Im 24 weeks pregnant and wanted a banana split from Sonic last night I WENT AND GOT IT. And when I woke up this morning I didnt have diabetes or become hugely obese. Let Jessica gain weight and enjoy her pregnancy, she clearly loves it and I honestly dont believe she got pregnant on purpose to get out of her WW contract. I think she’s one of those women who are just really irresponsible with her birth control and when she got knocked up claimed “it just didnt work”.

    • LAK says:

      Please find a better person to self identify with than Jessica with regards food choices especially pregnant Jessica.

      She thought her pregnancy weight gain would disappear as part of the birth process…perhaps she thought those 50lbs+ were amnio fluid weight.

      Plus she needed incentive of $4M cheque to drop the weight. Who knows how big she would remain if not for that.

    • akua says:

      ITA! I don’t know why everyone is so judgmental about her eating, (yes, I know it’s celebitchy, lol) like it’s some personal affront to them. When I was pregnant, I had just found out about celiac disease and tons of food allergies, dealing with that and trying to eat was insane. I would have been thrilled to be able to go out and eat whatever I wanted.

  41. jenny piccolo says:

    Why does her creepy ‘fiance’ always dress like Michael Meyers? Or maybe he likes to fix cars or something? All he needs is the Michael Meyers Halloween mask & I am running for my life. Aint nobody got time for that.

  42. Scarlett says:

    What is up with her fiance? He looks like a budget version or Britney Spears’ fiance except if I’m not mistaken, that guy is in his mid-40′s but looks about the same age or even younger than this guy. Can’t figure out why this guy looks so much older than 32. And sorry, he reminds me of a lumberjack complete with scraggly beard and flannel shirts which he even wears to expensive BH restaurants. But she obviously can’t seem to stay off of the man so I guess I’ll just …smh.

  43. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    What a beyond average looking couple. That sweater is hideous and rough looking. They look like a couple of ‘bogans’ or something. If I walked past them in the street I wouldn’t give them a second glance. And her looks are massively over rated.

    I don’t care about her pregnancies or her stupid diet.

  44. Holden says:

    She always looks like she’s just farted to me.

  45. BRE says:

    I think anytime you are in a contract to lose weight, especially for what isn’t much money (for Jessica), that you are likely to feel more deprived than without a contract. I think she will gain more this pregnancy than last because she is making up for what she feels she missed out on in the last few months.

    • akua says:

      I think anytime you are feeling deprived in a diet, it’s going to lead to trouble sooner or later. Unless you have iron will self-control (which comes with its own issues). The most successful I’ve been is when I stopped counting calories and focused on eating whole, mostly healthy foods most of the time, along with reasonable exercise. But when I wanted chocolate, I would have it, and it was a more reasonable amount than when I told myself I could never have it.

  46. Izzy says:

    Yes, WW gives you points for some “flexibility” but the thing is, using ALL the extra points every week usually hampers weight loss efforts. I’ve seen it in action, and my best results have been when I ignore the extra points, pretend I just don’t have them.

    Also, THIS STORY is why I think Jessica Simpson is such an asinine choice for WW spokesperson. She obviously knows nothing at all about healthy eating habits. Pregnancy is a time where you should eat more, to nourish the baby, but it is not a license to treat your body (and by extension, your baby’s body) like a garbage pail.

  47. anon says:

    That BF of her’s is well educated & comes from great family & treats Jessica awesome. Now some of you will come on here & say well he should he is her boy toy. Think about it do we say tha same about Drew Barrymorema.. now hubby? (oh yes art dealer) oh what about Britneys fiance( manager etc) yup ok… oh & didnt’ REESE hubby then BF get a huge promotion once he started dating Reese.. lol made him more respectable right. I say as long as these women are happy let them be there is nothing wrong with the woman being major breadwinner. Do we ask the same of women marrying wealthy men? Im sure there is a lot to ERIC that many don’t know that will in time shock everyone. It’s not all bad. They so happened to be out yesterday househunting & were not totally dressed but dressed down.. big deal its there time.. NO one in that party was dressed to the nines. what she wore or he wore was awesome for walking acerages footwear great. good for rumaging in houses.. People just need to back off.. Oh & the fart stuff Goerge Clooney came out after Jessica talking about his farts shall we discuss.. Farting is part of life & more so when pregnant.. Jess just will say it with no filter.. many say it behind closed doors..

  48. Psyren says:

    “I thought Jessica’s drink of choice was Scotch with an Oreo pie chaser?”

    Ya’ll some bitches. And I love it.

  49. Celt Lady says:

    Totally don’t care if she is preggers again or not, but what really gets to me is the sweater and the leggings. Both look like they need to go in the trash. She is a billionaire, no? Buy new clothes already! Or buy a lint shaver!

  50. jwoolman says:

    Uh, before going all ballistic about how she and her guy are dressed-look at people in the background. They are both dressed appropriately for the place where they were eating.
