LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Jessica Simpson Jenny Craig spokesperson deal is being pursued, claims reports. Jessica Simpson and Jenny Craig denied news reports two years ago about the same matter. But now the two are reportedly in final talks for a major deal.
In 2009, Jenny Craig issued a news statement disputing reports that it was courting Simpson. Scott Parker, VP of Marketing and New Business Development for Jenny Craig, at the time said “Over the past couple of weeks, a lot has been made about Jessica Simpson’s purported battle with her weight and more recently Jenny Craig’s interest in partnering with Ms. Simpson”.
Jenny Craig added “Ms. Simpson has publicly stated that she is healthy, feels great and is very happy with her body. We would agree. Ms. Simpson looks fantastic and we see no reason for her to participate in a weight management program.” Simpson at the time also confirmed news that she would not be joining “Jenny”, nor following in the footsteps of Valerie Bertinelli and Queen Latifah.
But now, US Magazine claims a deal is imminent. US is reporting, that after spring birth of her first child, Jessica will reportedly get paid $4 million to lose the weight with Jenny Craig. Simpson and Jenny Craig have yet to confirm the news.
