Ashlee Simpson-Wentz took to the internet today to shoot back at those who looked at a recent picture of her sister Jessica Simpson and pointed out the obvious – Jessica Simpson has got some extra padding; and it’s not her boyfriend Tony Romo’s football gear.
This past Sunday (washed-up) singer Jessica Simpson performed at the Kiss Country Chili Cookout in Pembroke Pines, Fla. Yes, I said chili cookout. She wore a hideous outfit which no doubt contributed to her look of plumpness, and that big ol’ Texas hair didn’t help her cause much either.
“Since when did a woman’s weight become newsworthy… I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman’s weight or figure as a headline on Fox News (”Jessica Simpson Shocks Fans With Noticeably Fuller Figure”.)
“All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard. Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend? I seriously doubt it.
“How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now can we focus on the things that really matter. -Ash ”
Oh poor, poor Ashlee, I thought you were smarter than this. Don’t you know that when it comes to celebrities, a woman’s weight is very newsworthy? Yes it’s true, women come in all shapes and sizes – but those are real women, not celebrity women. Of course there’s a different standard. Wake up! Double Standard is Hollywood’s middle name. Ever notice that the female celebrities who have gotten plastic surgery are picked apart, and yet the male celebrities with plastic faces are never even mentioned? Unless of course it’s beyond obvious – like Mickey Rourke or Axl Rose.
For the record – I think the horrible, horrible outfit had more to do with Jessica Simpson looking fat then actually being fat did. However, Jessica has definitely put on the poundage and in Hollywood that’s a big phat no-no!

So what do you think? Is Jessica Simpson “too” fat?
