Do You Agree With Ashlee About Jessica's Weight Debate?

Do You Agree With Ashlee About Jessica's Weight Debate?

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?

i'm extremely disappointed with so many women posters on this site. if you want to see obesity, turn on the biggest loser. for any of you to insinuate that jessica simpson is fat because she has rolls is ignorant and really damaging to young women on this site. if you had a child who had a 'roll on her stomach' when wearing a bad pair of pants, i feel bad for your children. let's support other women.

Curves my... I'm not going to stick up for what Ashlee says. After all, everything that comes out of her mouth is garbage, and I thought everybody would have known that by now. Size 2!? Yeah Right.

First off, kudos to Kate Winslet for always being honest about her size. She said she got as large as a sixteen, but without working out teeters at a British size 12. It didn't raise any eyebrows on my behalf. A British size 12 is a US 10 and while that isn't "skinny" it's not hefty. Looking at the pick of Jessica I would say that she's a large 8 in the pants and a 10-12 in the top. If she or Ashlee would say simply that Jessica is not fat and looks fine I wouldn't have one thing to say about it. It's when they (and Jennifer Love Hewitt, too) lie and say they're a size "2" when clearly they are not it is a slap to all of the good looking size 8-12s out there. Why can't she just say a real size and leave it that? If this is really about self-esteem and all that garbage about loving who you are then why lie about the clothing size (are you embarrassed to be a 10??)? And lastly, I don't think anyone who's had a nose job, hair extensions, and lip augmentation gets to lecture anyone else on setting examples about body dysmorphia and self esteem. Ashlee obviously buys into wanting to look to a type so how can she blame others for wanting the same? Okay, not lastly, and I think Jessica needs to quit acting so needy in the men department. She's a good looking gal even as a size 10. If Tony Romo doesn't work out it won't be the end of her world.

Sorry A$$lee your sister made a LIVING based on HER BODY right? So if she gets chunky and wears unflattering clothes? FULL ON FAIR to criticize her.

This whole thing is pretty ridiculous. So the girl gained a few pounds, its not like she is obese.

You go girl. I love it. Finally someone has spoken out about celebrity weight and our odd standards of wanting them super skinny and always in shape!

What I have a problem with is that Ashlee points at Fox News for this. I seriously saw it everywhere else - USWeekly, Entertainment Weekly, Daily Mail, even MSNBC - and did not see it on Fox. The fact that she put that in her post really took away any serious consideration I would have given her words.

What is unhealthy is how much her weight fluctuates. Everyone knows that is incredibly bad for your entire system.

No publicity is bad publicity for the Simpsons, she'll try to get a weight loss sponsorship out of it and do magazines, just like last year when she gains and then lost the weight. She pulls the same crap every year with her weight, as she does with her fake relationships. I don't envy a desperate tramp that makes a living out of humiliation.

HELLO!! It's called a publicity stunt. I personally don't think she is fat. However, when Dukes came out she was struttin' her stuff around as if she was the hottest thing ever, and she got attention for it. She is singing at Chili cook off!!! It doesn't get any worse. She knows this, so she gains weight to get people talking about her. Now she is gonna loose a bunch of weight so we can talk about how great she looks! It's the nature of the business.

I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I think it's good that Ashlee sticks up for her sister. Ashlee is being loyal. However, I think it's laughable that Ashlee talks about loving and respecting one's self when she's clearly had cosmetic surgery. What the hell does she know about that subject? LOL Also, I think it's clear that Jessica has some gain weight, which is fine. However, it would behoove her to wear something that flatters her new figure (no camel toe, no muffin top, fat rolls, etc.). She dressed for someone much leaner and smaller. If she dressed for her new body, she can look very pretty. JMHO.

"Since when did a woman's weight become newsworthy..." . Um, I'm still trying to figure out why these two are newsworthy at all. Ashlee is boring with no talent and her sister is old news. It would be great to NEVER see another story about either of them on the Internet again. I'm not fond of either of these immature clueless chickies.

Oh and I like Ashley's nose job. I would have had it done too if I were her, it looks great. It is possible to love yourself and hate your nose. Why have an ugly nose if you can get rid of it? If you had big bucky teeth you would get braces right?

I think Jess looks a little heavy in the picture but I used to think she looked to skinny for her body type in her daisy duke days. For the girl that is 5' 7" and weighs 115 that's perfectly normal for some. I am 5'7" 123lbs and I am 32. I wear beween a 4 and a 6 because my hips are curvy. I used to weigh around 116 in my 20's and I ate like crazy. My Mom was the same way. Some people are just built slim and there is nothing wrong/unhealthy with that. BMI states that 118 is the low end not 120 btw.

Nice of Ash to get her sister's back (fat). There are rolls in half of those pictures. Yes she is wearing a very unflattering outfit, yes she has put on weight, yes I weigh more than she does I'm sure. Should it be effing news? NO! Should we all play critic? No, but this is what we come here for. Size 2? :ROTFL: To tell other posters to get a life is pretty mean.

I don't agree with fugly Ashlee Simpson. She's not one to be talking. She loves herself so much that she had to go under knife to get a better face than that fugliness she was born with. The same goes for her sister (JSimpson) who BTW has fake boobs!!!

size 2 was an example. i don't think Ashlee was trying to claim that her sis was that small. remember jennifer love hewitt saying "size 0 isn't fat!" she was making a commentary on girls and hollywood. same thing.

The fact that celebs like Ashlee and Jennifer Love Hewitt bring up "criticizing a size 2" is just ridiculous and trying too hard. It's a NUMBER. I think women should realize the clothing makers ,ake the number smaller so the women buying them do not feel bad. Why harp on criticizing a size 2 when like I said, it's a number, and b, it's not true. What if Jess wore a NINE, yes, NINE. Is that terrible? Most places I have been that have size nines and I know the ones at Hollister for a fact are for girls with a twenty nine inch waist! FAR from obese. It ain't a two, but it ain't anywhere near fat.

First- have none of you ever had a bad photo at a bad angle taken of you???? I think that unless you saw the girl in person, it is very hard to tell what size she is. In addition, clothes in the same size look very different on different body types. While I agree that choosing to be in the business she is in, sets her up for such critism, having it be a news item in the world we live in right now is horrifying. Not to mention, the ridicule of a woman her size is detrimental to young girls and their images of themselves.
