On Monday, a fairly unflattering set of photos of Jessica Simpson hit the Internet setting off a ton of unkind headlines mostly centered around her weight. While most of you agreed that her jeans were the biggest culprit and there's nothing wrong with a few curves, hopefully Jessica has stayed away. Her sister, on the other hand, hasn't and she took to her blog to write about how angry it makes her. Since Jessica seems happier than ever with Tony, maybe acknowledging the haters will only make it worse. Ashlee wrote:
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.
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.
So tell us — do you agree with Ashlee about Jessica's weight debate?
