Jessica Simpson Opens For Rascal Flatts

Jessica Simpson Opens For Rascal Flatts

Jessica Simpson hides behind her Dior shades and LV handbag as she leaves her hotel in Charlottesville, Virginia on Thursday (January 29).

The 28-year-old country singer headed to University of Virginia’s John Paul Jones Arena, where she’ll be opening up for country trio Rascal Flatts.

Earlier this week, Jessica has been under fire for having a fuller figure.

Jessica Simpson is becoming part of this trend we call body-bullying,” People editor Galina Espinoza said on The Today Show earlier this morning. “People are cruelly mocking her, making her feel like there is something wrong with her just because she has a slightly fuller figure. It’s something that’s going on increasingly in Hollywood.”

Pot, meet kettle.

yeah, well she clearly belives her shirt that says real girlz eat meat. so she can bully others but they cant bully her? stop being such a stuck up fat *****.

# 3

Papa Joe and Jessica are loving all this attention!!PEOPLE COVER STORY probably already in the works.

# 4

I think Jessica Simpson looks healthy. If she’s skinny people say she needs to eat, if she’s voluptious people say she’s fat. ridiculous.

# 5

layla, what is your problem? this body bullying is something that ALL women deal with, so stop trying to focus on other things. right now we need to focus on the idea that women have unrealistic expectations.

thank you, jessica, for enduring the bullying and maintaining a healthier weight. THANKYOU.

OMG if she is full figured then I’m obese ..& i’m a size 6 !!!! who is this Galina person anyways and how much does she weigh?

# 7

Oh, you are absolutely correct, imelda. If she’s fat, then as a size six I am not far behind. The outfit which she was wearing when she began getting lambasted was not a flattering outfit. But she’s far from fat. Goodness forbid the woman actually eat food and not starve herself in Hollywood. Ugh.

how can she say ‘fuller figure’? jessica is still a skinny person! the media is just running with this story to make her feel like crap when it’s not true. they know she’s not fat they just want her to feel bad.if you call the girl in these pics fat thats just BS.and people should seriously think about the younger people watching this.its no wonder eating disorders are on the increase.

If she had even a little talent, it wouldn’t be such a big deal that she is fat. Her looks are all she has (used to have).

This is horrible. I bet people on these comments are fat asses themselves and want to feel superior to her

The reason people are giving her a bad time is that she and her father have always protrayed her as a sex symbol. Look at my body and my double D’s, I’m so sexy don’t you wish you were me. And now that she is just plain average looking, there are better looking and more talented ladies out there, she can’t take it. If you can’t stand the heat then get out of the frying pan!!! She is a publicity hound so she should be enjoying all the feedback with the weight gain, 10 million dollar law suit, and her oh so wonderful cowboy cheating on her. She is getting better billing than the Rascal Flats, and it’s their concert.

crazy crazy world!!!…calling this girl fat..do you guys know how many people are and will be losing their jobs?.. really there are way bigger problems in the world, no pun intended..

why don’t all you jealous potsuckers shut up?! i can bet you’re a wideload as well

What a difference an outfit makes. No question she looks twice her former self in that other getup. Yet, in this outfit no one would ever have made a comment about her weight. She needs to watch her weight for her health (and that goes for all of us) and she seriously needs to look in the mirror before she goes onstage. She chose the business and this bullying is part of it. If she can’t take the heat, then she’s going to have to get another job – ’cause right or wrong, this is the way it is.

I’m sorry to be such a cynic, but I think she and papa Joe planned this whole thing out…..weight gain=BIG PUBLICITY, and Jess getting to be the poor victim of our societal sickness per our weight obsession. They’ll do ANYTHING to stay in the public eye, and keep Papa Joe’s commission’s coming in….Jenny Craig called yet??

Simpson is not overweight. The concert getup was just particularly unflattering. I agree with Kate in that no one would ever say anything about her figure in this outfit. Yet, even if she had/has gained way, hollywood is in no way entitled to bodybashing. If we give them the right to set the bar for what’s considered “beautiful”, then we’ll all be anorexic.

Jessics is beautiful just as she is. And, BTW, she is not fat by normal standards, just by the fucked-up, self-centered, anorexic Ho;;ywood standards!

Jessica’s gorgeous no matter what her size is.

Calling you fat Jessica is crazy, you look wonderful, don’t listen to these morons they have nothing better to do then to put everyone down..

If its bad to judge people by their weight, why is her only claim to fame getting skinny so she could writhe around on a soapy car half naked? I hate this worthless *****.

Forget the weight. What’s up with her lips?

Someone from one of the radio stations made a good point. Jessica was the one who said that her body was her passport, or words to that effect. She’s the one who first made weight an issue. People are now just holding her up to HER own standards.

That being said, though, she’s still far from obese. She just needs to dress better.

AT LEAST SHE LEARNED TO COVER UP HER FAT SELF. NOBODY WANTS TO SEE YOUR ARM BLUBBER AND ROLLS OF FAT DOWN YOUR SIDES.

I honestly think she’s loving this. As they say, any publicity is good publicity. It’s bringing her more attention than her “music”.

Jessica looks skinny in these pixs

Love her outfit. She looks great to me.
