“While she’s not diverting from the diet, Jessica isn’t sticking to the portion plan and isn’t losing as much weight as she should.

“She knows that as the Weight Watchers spokesperson she has to be more disciplined, but her emotions are all over the place right now."

As previously reported, Jessica, 32, is struggling to come to terms with the revelations that dad Joe, a former youth minister and Baptist pastor, has come out of the closet.

However, the Dukes of Hazzard star, who has a number of close gay friends in her life, has vowed to stand by her father despite his sexual preference.

“Jessica had absolutely no clue that her father was gay, not even the slightest inkling,” a source previously told “She thinks she has very good gaydar, especially since a lot of her friends are gay, but she did not see this coming at all.

“It was a complete shock to the system, she feels terribly for her mom who was left reeling by the announcement and her sister Ashlee has also taken the news quite badly.

“Jessica’s been trying to process the information slowly, but she’s having difficulty dealing with it. She can’t understand why Joe stayed married to Tina for so long, and can't help wondering how much of their life was a lie," the source continued.

“Despite that, she’s going to stand by him and support his decision. After all, he’s still her father and Joe’s always been there for Jessica whenever she’s needed him...And not just as a father, but as her manager too."
