Ashlee Simpson Stands By Her Sister.

Posted by Chrissie on January 29th, 2009


Oh isn’t this sweet when the family all bands together all supportive like. So take note, if you want to bash Jessica Simpson’s newfound weight gain, you will have to take it up with her feistier counterpart, Ashlee Simpson because she’s just not gonna take it. Kinda makes you wonder, why isn’t Jessica standing up for herself? Maybe because while she was gaining all that weight, she lost a few pounds in her spinal column?
But the weight backlash comes from a recent public appearance that Jessica Simpson made, that has fashion watchers all over cringe. Why? Because if there was ever a reason NOT to wear this season’s high waisted jeans, Jessica Simpson has given it to us, and then some. If you were wondering what the crime is with wearing the new high waisted trouser then use this photo as Exhibit A in the weight case against Jessica Simpson.

And now these denim doozies have landed her on the cover of US Weekly as a before pic for her diet come back to be. Even Mary Hart type folks are celebrating Jessica for being so ‘proud of her curves’. And while Jessica may or may not be proud of her curves, her sister is not too happy about the fact that people are commenting on them at all. Ashlee Simpson says, stop being so mean to my sister, and I MEAN it! And, like all celebrities, Ashlee has gone to her blog to dis the folks dissing her sweet sister:

“I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight. Since when did a woman’s weight become newsworthy,” Ashlee says: “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. All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard.”

What do we think, does Ashlee have a point? I am going to say no on this one. There actually IS a different standard for celebrities. Am I wrong in saying that? I don’t think so, because Jessica rose to fame because she was a blonde bombshell. In fact her brightest moments in the starlit sky of Tinseltown were shining when she was sporting super short denim shorts and a tie-waisted Daisy Duke outfit. No no, this is a girl who actually capitalized on the fact that she was a perfect size zero, so should we be a little sympathetic when she gains a few pounds?

Don’t think so. I am not going to go so far as to throw the weight slings, but I will suggest Jessica try a new pair of pants. Or a skirt. Or black. Yes, all black, much more slimming Jessica.
