Ashlee Simpson took to the blogs to defend her sisters weight gain. She entitled it "“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.

I like the weight on her, aside from the face.  My main concern was how quickly she gained it is all.-Dr.FB

Did y'all hear about Jessica's breakdown on stage Thursday night in Michigan? She forgot the words to her song and started tearing up. I kind of feel sorry for her, but maybe she's just not cut out for it.

Yes, seriously what's the big deal?! Completely agree with Ashlee. This is a perfect exampe of exactly how quickly women can gain weight and if anything should highlight the extremes that women will go to achieve size zero. Scary shit. Jess looks great.
