Jessica Simpson Weight Loss: Singer Loses 60 Pounds In 6 Months

Jessica Simpson Weight Loss: Singer Loses 60 Pounds In 6 Months

Commented Oct 26, 2012 at 23:13:32 in Celebrity

“OMG< She got paid by weight watchers to do it. If everyone got paid by weight watchers, We could all be able to have a personal trainer and someone cooking my meals too. Give me a couple million dollars and I could do the same. Unfortunately I don't have that money to spend on weight watchers, $300-500 a month. So if they want to hire me for a million dollars I'm in.”

“Excuse, excuses. If you wanted to lose the weight and exercise you would. It's that simple. I'm not being mean as I know it's hard sometimes (I have two kids and a mortgage too) but I will get up early or go to bed late to fit a workout in. And don't even get me started on diet. That's the real hard part.”

“I agree that it's much easier to lose weight with a trainer and most likely a personal chef, but Weight Watchers is not 300-500 per month. Most weekly sessions are 12 per week and a little more if you pay for online access. And you DON'T have to buy their food even though they do have a food brand. I know from experience. I think Jenny Craig is one of the pricey ones.”

Rick Santorum Explains Mitt Romney Endorsement On Leno

“After watching Rick Santorum on Leno last night, I realize that this man needs to get a clue. From talking about how single parents are Bad and using a condom or Birth control is the devil. I am a single parent, my husband died 9 years ago. I am not a BAD parent and my children are not Bad children. And yes they do not get everything that a 2 income family may bring, but my children have learned Values. You don't get everything like the kid next door but we manage. Does that mean all the single parents from 911 are Useless parents because they are single parents? While I support him and his family living off the governments money by paying my taxes. I don't get my insurance paid for, not my gas or mortgage, I don't get to drive my car for free and fill up for free.Pull out that government credit card and spend spend spend. He is just another lying Politician. Pay all politician $60000 to live on and support the family, pay all your own bills and I bet they would figure out how to fix this country. Give Rick Santorum that and I bet he wouldn't be putting that little thing in and more dark holes with out a condom. He is just another loser. and the country is screwed once more.”

“There is more to this than a back ground check of a good employee. I think she was more than likely making to much money and her age plays a part in this. When she was hired, a back ground check should have been done then. If she was hired long before back ground checks where done, then there should be some for of statue of limitations or a clause because she was a model employee and if no crime had been committed in the past 40 years. Let it go. I hope she sues the pants off of Wells Fargo. Good Luck to her”

“How true this is, they told me the same thing and now a big run around. I have contacted the states attorney general about this and they are helping me.( I hope)... Bank of America targets Single women, I was told by a friend of mine that was asssociated with BAC. I never had a problem with my mortgage until they took it over and kept increasing my mortgage payment. When I asked they told me I wasn't making the right payment. Then they told me I qualified for modification at a lower rate and my payment would be greatly less.But I had to stop making payments to get into the program. They Lied to me and now, who knows whats going to happen. If I had the money to get a attorney I would sue the crap out of them. and I have paper work to back my claim. I just don't know how the government allowed this to happen to all the people in this scam. the government...... "FOR THE PEOPLE" my ass.”

“I sure it happened to this women.
I've had a debt collector threaten me and MY CHILDREN, he was coming to take me out. He read my address off and said he was coming to get me, he will be there in a few hours to collect it or he was going to beat it out of me.The police say there is nothing they could do, they can make threats. I borrowed a gun, I really thought that the foreign SOB was coming. I'm a single parent, my husband died and no life insurance money. My job made cuts, I lost hours. I sacrifice to feed my kids b4 paying the bill. Only after they refused to take what I could give them. I always paid my bills on time, they increase my percentage rate, From a 9% to 27%, I had great credit. it got hard to pay the high amount.Now I am being sued for the $2500, I know I owe it, I have been threatened with jail. I don't have the $$$, they wont take what I can give them. Years ago they would put it on your credit report.You couldn't get a loan until you paid it off. Jail I will go. I will lose my job and then they get nothing. Suicide has crossed my mind, when your being threatened and you have no where to turn. But what good would that do for my children. They need their mother.”

“You could also try the district attorney's office directly. You may find the most sympathetic ear from a crimes against women division. Threatening violence is never acceptable, such threats should be attended to by your local officials.”

“Police wouldn't do anything? You hound the Police to do something until you get action.Make them not be lazy. It's illegal for a debt collector to threaten bodily harm, lvpjw.”

“The police gave you bad advice. Threatening in any way is against the fair debt credit reporting act. It is a violation. You can sue in small claims court over it. You can collect up to $1000.00 per occurrence and violation. Get a copy of the police report, this will substantiate your claim, that you reported it to someone at the time. You might try your local legal services for some help. They cannot threaten you with jail, and I would question the change in interest rate, especially if there were no new charges. Depends on the circumstances whether that is legal or not. Your situation is not nearly so dire.”

“My cousin filed for bankruptcy several years ago. When he got to court, the judge told him that he wouldn't have had to file at all. He owned the trailer he lived in and a used car. The judge said the creditors couldn't touch those and, with no other assets to his name, he was safe and there wasn't a thing the creditors could do to him except drive him crazy with the phone calls.

Please don't panic. Do some checking around. Some lawyers offer one free consultation visit and could possibly tell you if this alleged lawsuit is something to worry about. There are also free consumer credit counseling agencies who will work with you to get the creditors off your back. My brother and sister-in-law went with Consumer Credit Counseling. They looked at their income and all their expenses, decided what they could afford to pay toward each debt. They were very generous with leaving them plenty for daily expenses. They contacted the creditors, negotiated for reduced amounts and worked out payment plans. From that point on, the creditors were not allowed to contact the family in any way. My brother sent one payment to the counseling service each month, who then made the arranged payments for them. No more calls and within about four years, they were debt free again. And because it was a non-profit, they paid no fees for the service. Hang in there.”

“You can not go to jail. The only thing they can do is put it on your credit report. They lie and tell you all kinds of stuff. Just get an answering machine with caller ID. Dont answer the calls you dont know and keep the volume on the machine off so you dont have to hear them, Pay what you can...be there for your kids. You can do this. DOnt let them fool you into fearing them. They have NO POWER AT ALL to do anything to you.”

Michael5555 on Feb 11, 2012 at 01:50:57

“First off they can not throw you in jail, second off, I know you feel obligated to pay your debt but if a debt collector has it your credit is already damaged, you could chose to simply not pay the debt or pay them whatever you feel like, send the debt collector a certified letter telling them to no longer contact you and by law they are not allowed to and there are government agencies you can contact if they do, don't let them bully you. Feed your children and look out for their and your own well being FIRST, your children need you. Simply mail them small amounts of money, they will take it regardless what they are yelling you, just keep a record.”

“yes your children desperately need youi it really is against the law to be harrresed by these people and did you apply for survivors benifits when your husband passed”

“don't harm yourself. you can file for bankruptcy and discharge the debt. go speak with someone at a free debt counseling service or your local legal aid.”

“It sounds like someone had a banana stuck up their butt that day. To have a young man having HARMLESS fun and have him cuffed like a criminal. I did not see any players on the field so it did not disrupt the game. How can such a harmless fun prank be so bad? I praise this young man for having fun and making people laugh. He didn't run around in his birthday suit. I guess they need to post signs that read " No Bananas Allowed" And "Having Fun is not Allowed".... To Brian Thompson, don't let anyone tell you you can't wear a Banana and Don't stop having fun.”

“I can not believe that this woman, (not a mother) would be allowed free with a slap on the wrists. It was not just child abuse, this was torture to a child. If she started cutting off fingers, would that be ok too? Hot sauce can do a lot of damage. let alone a very cold shower. This is the new way to punish children. Shame on the Judge that is allowing this. All six kids should be taken out of that home. The same treatment should be set forth upon her, hot sauce in the mouth, and cold showers. That would be fair. She had to go on a tv show for help, come on and get real, CALL YOUR DOCTOR. REALLY NOW. This TORTURE is not over for this child, if she got away with it, she will do it again. If anyone did a crime that did not involve hurting anyone It would be jail time, But when you hurt a child, for this animal she gets to roam free. She knew what she was doing. What is wrong with the system? SHE IS NOT A GOOD MOTHER, nor should be called a mother. Mothers protect, not hurt. Beside, many children misbehave at school, she is not the only one that has a child that does. This just makes me sick to know that she got away with it.”

“Washington could easily correct this problem. Take all these low life, useless politicians including the President, make them work for a year with a pay of only $60,000 a year. That means, pay your own bills, health care, groceries, pump your own gas and pay for it out of your own pocket, mortgage, car insurance, car payments, your property taxes, phone, gas and electric, cable and any credit cards bills that you make. Also support all those mistresses they have. I can guarantee that they would come up with the answer to fix things in this country. Politicians live in the land of the free, they don't pay. American people do not live the land of the free, we pay and pay until there is no more to give. How can a politician know what is good for the people if they don't live it? Live the life of the American People and answers will follow.”

“My President has worked and volunteered with the poor so do your homework before you start posting. My President didn't marry money or inherit it like most of the people in congress he worked, paid off college loans, and became an author. Most of the people posting here don't bring home enough money in a year that they get all of the their little tax dollars back. It's people like me the quote Middle Class who make to much money to be classified poor but not enough to be classified Rich who has been carrying this country the last 8 years. Most of the people who want to slam folks that are on Welfare aren't very far from it themselves. Do you know how many people who work every day but still have to seek assistance to make ends meet. Do you know how many families have been destroyed because of illness in their family and cost of treatment took everything they worked for. I have no problem paying my fair share its time for everyone to do the same expecally the Rich.”

“14 years old and needs a babysitter? What do you think was going to happen when a boy at 14 has a girl over? Shame on the Parent or Parents. This was bound to happen. How long has she been babysitting for this boy? Poor girl was set up, now considered a sexual predator. Unless this boy was handicapped or had a mental problem, otherwise I would place blame on the parents. 14years old and raging hormones what do you think that could possibly happen? Why not play with an experience 20 year old women. Nothing like Bragging rights for the boy, What a dream for this young man. But now a nightmare for this young lady.”

“I am still wondering who the father is of this little girl? Was the father and brother molesting the little girl too? If this is true that they molested Casey, but no excuse for what has happened. These are very sick people they should all be locked up. Also, if this child drowned, shouldn't her clothing that they found should be completely full of pool chlorine, There should still be traces of it in her shirt and pants. I as a pool owner, its not easy to get rid of that smell in clothes and I would imagine they should be able to find something in her clothing to say whether they where in a chlorine pool or not. As far as I see, the whole family is liars. They waited 31 day to call a missing person in, I don't care how you look at it, Charge them all to death and justice will be served for this sweet innocent baby girl.”

sharitawhitehead on Jun 24, 2011 at 20:15:53

“I partly agree with you that they all are liars and should be put in jail. However, because they are all liars we don't know if the accusations about Casey being molested is true. And less say that her story about her daughter is true of the drowning, would you go to dancing a few days later? Wouldn't the grandparents know that she does not have a real babysitter? I thought the grandparents did the babysitting and did not know that Casey even had a job. Despite all that, if she was afraid of reporting the accident to the police, a loving mother/grandparent would not have disposed of the body in that manner. There would have been some attempt to have a civil burial.”
