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.

    Jessica did not look like a size 2 in those pictures. Nontheless, I blame it on the pants…The high waisted thing just didn’t do any good for her.

    people read about people’s weight gain…especially when you’re in show business…lolz

    bish please.
    asslee’s a lame & jess is a has-been loser. jess should be happy people are talking about her weight, because before it they weren’t talking about her at all.

    No your sis chose to be in the public eye-so she’s being compared to the size she once was- I think the bigger news story should have been Jessica Simpson goes from playing In This Skin Tour to the Chilli Festival what happened to her career?’

    I think Jessica is beautiful just like she is…I guess 5 pounds on someone extremely tiny to begin with is more newsworthy than how to fix our economic mess! Good grief!!!

    no wonder there are so many little girls who are anorexic. they read stories like this and think if they’re not a size zero, they’re fat. really sad.

    I agree, it’s terrible to think that you can’t be in the public eye without being a size 0. Those pants were unflattering but I can’t believe there are still people on this thread commenting about what an idiot Ashlee is just because her sister is famous.

    well it is newsworthy. it comes with the territory of being in the spotlight(not that she is really an “a list” celebrity though.)

    but she is right that you wouldn’t go up to a family member and say “wow, you have gotten fat”
    you would say it once they left the room…

    usually when a big person sits on tony he will throw everything up for grabs or give everything away.

    just saying.

    Size 2?! I guess a size 2 is not what it used to be, unless we have ten sizes between 0 and 2. She looked like a comfortable 6-8 (or a chunky European 12 :D )

    anna Says:

    i agree with ashlee with the whole
    ‘judging people’ thing
    BUT jessica is definitely not
    a size 2. she does look a little fat.
    but who caress

    k Says:

    Yea right, size 2. Try a 12.

    Seriously, Asslee needs to shut the F up. This family is completely irrelevant, so I suppose this is some desperate attempt to stay in the spotlight. Jessica is NOT a size 2. Not a chance in hell! and it wasn’t just news on Foxnews moron, it was on EVERY website including Justjared, so it’s kind of funny the little emo chick decideds to just call out one news source. Nice try, unfortunately you sound stupid. Your sister is large–deal with it. She had to go and flaunt her “Daisy Duke” body to anyone and everyone and now that she’s gained a bunch of weight it’s off limits?? Doesn’t work like that.

    I agree. leave her alone

    Jessica Says:

    She didn’t say that Jessica was a size 2. She was making the point that even someone that is as small as a size 2 gets called fat.

    Shakespearean, indeed.

    Shannon Says:

    this is a ploy ppl everyone is on jess’s case right now in a cople of monts she’s gonna be on the core of a mag talking about how she lost the weight trust! also i dont think she is that fat the outfit didn’t do her any wonders

    Stacie Says:

    Hey Jessica (Ashley)…if you want little girls to feel good about themselves then don’t lie about your size. You would be helping out the self-image of little girls if you would admit your a 6-8 (even a 4), but don’t try to pass yourself off as a 2.
