Jessica Simpson didn’t have any luck selling her pregnancy story. She was hoping to be able to sell her big announcement to the tabloids for a nice paycheck but ended up just sharing her news on Twitter because she didn’t have any takers. Now that baby Maxwell is here, she was hoping to make some big money from selling her first baby pictures. She sold pictures of her newborn to People magazine, but only got a measly $800k for them. That may sound like a lot of money but People magazine paid $11mil for the first pics of Brad and Angelina’s twins and $6mil for the pictures of Jennifer Lopez’ babies.
But at least she’s profiting from her weight gain. She signed a $3mil deal with Weight Watchers to be there new spokesperson as she drops her baby weight.
