Jessica Simpson Shows Exactly What 'Celeb Mom Child Exploitation' Means With New Video Of Baby Maxwell

These celebs seem to exploit their pregnancies and children to generate good press or sell the public some new product. And celeb mom extraordinaire Jessica Simpson just perfectly illustrated the type of child exploitation I’m taking about! More »
