Ashlee Simpson Defends Sister's Weight Gain

Ashlee Simpson Defends Sister's Weight Gain

Jessica Simpson‘s recent weight gain has become all the buzz lately. Her little sister Ashlee has taken to her MySpace to vent her frustration:

“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

Earlier today, one of Jessica‘s trainers also defended her fuller figure.
