Ashlee Simpson defends her big sister

January 28th, 2009 // 247 Comments

Ashlee Simpson took to her blog to defend Jessica Simpson’s honor which I assumed got mistaken for a Ho-Ho because I’m a terrible person:

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.

Yeah, I’m with you, Ashlee. How dare FOX News run a headline about your sister’s weight? That’s my job! Do I report the news solely from a blatant Republican viewpoint? Shit no. So let’s try and maintain some boundaries, people. For journalism’s sake.

    Jennifer Love-Cheezeburger was also this magical size 2.

    “How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves”….Helluvan example Ashlee sets with all her plastic surgery. And the comment about “what if it was your wife…” If my wife went in public looking like that FAT pig Jessica, she and I would have a long sit down talk. Jesus jumpin Christ! those jeans! Ewww!

  3. Has anyone seen Joey's Thanksgiving pants...? ...

    If the standard body image was the same for celebrities as it was for everybody else, nobody would be considered *hot and famous*!

    And where were Ashley’s stretchy pants when she made it big? …. oh, right… she didn’t own stretchy pants until she became pregnant because if she did, the (teen-pop image-obsessed) fan club she has now would never have bought her albums to begin with.

    Celebrities only throw around positive words about larger body images when they themselves weigh higher than the anorexic standard found in hollywood.

    Let’s face it, most celebrities will eventually make it into one of two categories:
    1) Fat – from excessive drinking, lack of exercise, poor diet. This phenomenon occurs when their careers start to tank.
    2) Resembling the undead – due to the lines of coke snorted when their careers are on the rise and they feel uber-egotistical; or, when people start to care a little less and adopt the “I’m gonna do crazy shi^& in public because I am uber-starved for attention” phenomenon.

    Whichever path a celebrity chooses, in the end *most* will eventually go crazy anyways. Notice there are more trips down memory lane with the celebrities we watched smashing umbrella’s and licking vodka/redbull off the floor??

    This is the lifestyle that celebrities have chosen. If they can’t deal with it when mother nature and negative publicty kicks in, they should consider spending their xxxx-amount of dollars on a decent education and get a job like everybody else instead of whining about how unfair and cruel life is.

  4. ggggggggg

    i think she’s fat, but i love how so many girls on here start their posts with “i’m a size 2″ it’s pretty fucking rare for a girl to be a size 2 or 0, only really skinny or fit people like celebrities are usually a size 2, so I find it hard to believe that so many girls reading this site are a size 2. You can call her fat even if you’re not a size 2, you don’t need to preface everything with that to make yourself feel better about reaming her out.
    and btw, pointing out what your weight or size is also doesn’t enhance or make your point any more relevant, it’s just a way to try and brag about yourself.

  5. taha!

    bad pants don’t make your face look fat!!
    size 2???? hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahhaha!!!!!!!!!

  6. size 2 cutie


    Sorry you are having a fat year. Lots of people are a size 2. They’re called New Yorkers. Get over yourself.

  7. Ha ha ha …. Jessica sure is her BIIIIIGGGG sister!

  8. shut up Ashley

    Oh great here we go, now Jessica is going to put out some video of her trying to squeeze into the biggest size 2 jeans on the planet. Well Jess if you shop at K-mart where they cater to the morbidly obese you may find a size 2 that will fit you, unfortunately in the real world it would be a size 12 so it doesn’t really count.
    When irrelevant people whose entire lives are based on being useless fame money and attention driven whores lecture people on focussing on what really matters it’s almost to hilarious to handle. Ashley if you and your sister were doctors, scientist, police officer, firefighters I could go on.. Then you could say something about this, but since you are part of the sick world of Hollywood that promotes all that is vapid and worthless vanity and greatly contributes to the increasing stupidity, greed, and uselessness of society and since you and almost all celebrities are the definition of useless, worthless, egotistical, greedy and shallow and vapid I’d say you’re a big FAT fucking hypocrite and it’s time to shut up and maybe just maybe try doing something useful with your life and contributing to society (say use your millions to help a hospital instead of buying another mansion and some new 500 shoes with it)and p.s popping out a bastard child because you’re too stupid to actually get married and have some alone time with your husband before you put on the incredibly exhausting and demanding parent hat doesn’t count (ya that’s going to end nicely), any fertile woman can do that.

    If you want to lecture people on what matters try using your undeserved d class fame and unearned wealth (when you make 100 times more that a life saving firefighter for being a crappy poppy singer ya you haven’t earned a dime) and actually really give back to society and try to do something with your life, then maybe you can have something to say about what really matters, but while you remain a giant part of all that doesn’t matter in the world you should keep your mouth shut and stop yourself from looking like a bigger idiot then you already do. Also if loving yourself for who you are naturally is so important why’d you get your nose fixed and btw you forget to obligatory chin job, you kinda need it.

  9. SATAN

    she’s so unattractive now…

    i’d still probably sprinkle garlic and marinara sauce all over my cock and tell her it was a new oversized sausage popsicle and then nut so hard in her eye that her retina became detached.

  10. Camel

    “Big” Sister… HAHAHAHAHAHA!

  11. mamamiasweetpeaches

    Yeah, Ashlee…women come in all differents hapes and sizes and we should totally embrace that.
    Then why, pray tell, did you shave off your Ray Romano nose???

  12. lies

    Exactly #53.

    If this was EVER about healthy body images and all that crap they wouldn’t make these long statements with LIES and pure hypocrisy. If your weight is all good then WHY are you lying about your size? It’s nothing but vanity, their giant ego’s get bruised so they get all mad and lie about what size they are. We aren’t fucking blind retards we can see you’ve packed it on.

    And P.S. To those complaining about people who say they are a size 2, when you take care of your body and work hard it’s pretty fucking irritating when someone lies about what size they are and pretend to be the same size as you simply out of vanity and shameless narcissism. What people are trying to prove is that many girls are size 2 (don’t know where you live that it;s so unusual) so they damn well know another size 2 when they see it. People are way to sensitive about this shit and why should people who take care of themselves have to be bashful about their size, especially when vain idiots are lying left and right, if anything that’s what causes problems for young women and body images; celebrities insistence and trying to appear perfect and doing nothing short of blatantly lying simply to protect their own ego.

  13. Ummm...yeah...

    What a fucking joke!
    Assley “no talent fucking a gay douchebag assclown”Simpleton is sticking up for her gigantic assed sister, Whorica “no talent fucking a gayer douchebag assclown” Simpleton.
    Doesn’t get any better than this folks…
    Somebody get me a gun…

  14. Jadedkitten

    size 2 my fucking ass I’m 5’2 with 42 DD’s and wear a size 4 so trust me when I say there’s no fucking way she’s a size 2 more like size 10-12

  16. TheTruthHurts

    Jessica Simpson was a celebrity because of what she looked like. She never could sing or act but guys got to fantasize when they saw her because she was pretty enough to spark those kind of fantasy’s. If she freely chooses to be a baby beached whale then she will loose her celibrity status quick enough.

  17. Rob

    This coming from a woman who was so concerned about others opinions that she had plastic surgery to fix the snoz!!

  18. Dear Ashley

    That’s right #61 and to add why did Ashley and Jessica both diet like crazy over the years. Jessica gave several interviews about how she was on a crazy exercise and diet regime for dukes of hazzard and had a trainer working her ass off to get to that wieght (funny many girls don’t have to try so hard). Ashley also was a little tubby in the waiste for a while and then a few years back lost a good 15 pounds and was dieting quite a bit so I guess these rules of accepting oneself are only in effect when it’s conveniant (ie when you’re fat and haggard, but you still want the public’s money for accomplishing nothing and no longer even looking good while you prance your talentless ass around which is FAT now btw).
    Sorry bitches but that ani’t the way fame works, you want respect for who you are not how you look well try getting a career that is based on actual talent and that actually contributes to society instead of getting one handed to you because of your appearance. See how that works? You have to EARN respect in this world. And just so you don’t waste your time having your publicist write another rant for you, you can’t go around sounding off about what really matters in the world when you are a useless celebrity whose entire life promotes and adds to all that is worthless and vapid in this world and expect people to listen to your lies and blantant hypocrisy.

    P.S. Ashley you were NEVER hired for your intelligence or inner beauty because you have none to speak of, you were hired and rose to your d list celebrity because your sister was hot before she ate some toddlers at Denny’s and even though you are still the ugly sister with a thick set of beer goggles or a good squint you almost passed for your sister. Know your place white trash.

  19. Jake

    Wait, I get it – it’s POWERS of 2. Not simply “size 2″. So, for example, Jessica is still size 2 (now to the 3rd power). Same as Heifer Love Hewitt in her sausage-skin swimsuit.

  20. Dee

    LOL what a phoney Ashlee is. Body image doesn’t matter, yet she’s had more plastic surgery then she can list. What a fucktard.

  21. Sir Tweak

    Still hotter than most of the women on this planet. No problem with this….at all!!!

  22. Dr. Phil

    With all due respect, Simpson girls, your self-esteem problems are caused by those late night bedroom visits by Homer…err, I mean, Papa Joe.

  23. Case

    WTF does her sisters appearance have to do with the current political situation in this country? Get off the fucking political bandwagon and come back to reality. Obama isnt going to wave his magic wand and make her thinner or make you any less a miserable person Trashlee Simpson.

  24. benjaminbutton55

    Size 2 ???
    You made me laugh!!!
    check out ==== ==== hot and slender tall models there will make you so jelous and wanna kill yourself!!!

  25. Morganzola

    @69. Jake -

    Heh heh, I finally get it now. Does the same equation apply to Tyra Banks?

  26. John Q. Public

    Simple rule: Two girls with marginal talent and attractiveness should not complain about or criticize the general public that has inexplicably has given them fame and fortune.

  27. I Win At Life

    Wow, is it just me or is Jessica Simpson becoming this generation’s Anna Nicole Smith? Pretty soon we are going to be seeing her on the Trimspa commercials and then Willa Ford is going to star as her in a made for TV movie.

  28. Rachell

    Maybe she’s a size 2 at Chico’s. I can believe that :)

    All that said, Ashlee has a point. With all that’s going on in the world, it’s sad to have a propoganda organ like Fox devoting (considerable) space to Jessica’s weight gain.

  29. Beth

    What Ashlee is trying to say is that she married a tiny fag and her fat sister is fucking a large fag.

  30. Fuck you all, I’m a size 5 to 7 depending on the brand and PROUD OF IT!!!!

    Alright fuckit, I’m going on a diet..

    Tony: Fuck.
    Justin: What’s up, man? We playing golf or taking phone calls?
    Tony: It’s Jess
    [cellphone rings]
    Justin: …and then I jizzed in my pants.
    Tony: Not cool, JT, not cool.
    Justin: Whatever, you know you laughed.
    [cellphone rings]
    Tony: You got Romo!
    Jess: [chews]
    Tony: Hello?
    Jess: [burps]
    Tony: Jess?!
    Jess: [chews while burping]
    Tony: JESSICA!
    Jess: [attempts to speak through mouth full of hush puppies] Pomy?
    Tony: Jess?
    Jess: [swallows] Hey, Tony!
    Tony: Hey baby, are you uh…eating again?
    Jess: Oh yeah. I’m performing at the Chili Cook-off in Florida! There’s so much food!
    Tony: Well just go easy, baby, you know, everything in moderation and all that.
    Jess: [ladles chili down throat] Moder-what-on?
    Tony: Just remember what your agent said, you need to keep your physique for the sake of your acting career.
    Jess: Well duh, that’s what I’m doing!
    Tony: How’s that?
    Jess: Well my agent told me about these two new biopic movies, and I’m s’posed to pick one to audition for.
    Tony: Oh really? Who are the subjects?
    Jess: Dolly Parton and Anna Nicole Smith.
    Tony: Oh God.
    Jess: [drinks room-temperature sour cream]
    Tony: Which one did you pick, Jess?
    Jess: [gargling] My girl Anna!
    Tony: Oh dear God. Jess, are you sure about that?
    Jess: Of course!
    Tony: But I think you’d make a great Dolly Parton. She’s so nice and skinny like you used to be. And we just joined this new gym so you could get back in shape without poor people talking to you.
    Jess: [swallows Merciless Pepper of Quetzlzacatenango] Uh-oh. I don’t feel so good.
    Tony: Jess?
    Jess: Bye bye Tony, Johnny Cash’s doggy is taking me to find my soulmate.
    [hangs up]
    Tony: But I’m your soulmate!
    Justin: Dude, you’re gay.

  32. Obama Skeptic

    Ah, yes, another stunning example of political brilliance from the Obama camp.

    Let’s see if I get this straight:

    Obama is the president now, so we shouldn’t care if Jessica Simpson gains 20 or 30 pounds. His magic healing powers will make all of this “like it never happened.”

    Can’t argue with logic like that.

    Nice to see that the people who run the largest nuclear power in the world were elected via this line of thought. Four years from now perhaps we can ask Tinkerbell “who would you vote for, Tink?”

    “All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard.”

    There isn’t a different standard for celebrities…with talent.

  34. Ouisa

    Size 2, my Aunt Fannie… <_<

    #82 – here’s a collection of the “thinking” of YOUR guy from the past 8 years.

    (The following poem is composed entirely of actual quotes from George W. Bush.)

    Make the Pie Higher

    I think we all agree, the past is over.
    This is still a dangerous world.
    It’s a world of madmen
    And uncertainty
    And potential mental losses.

    Rarely is the question asked
    Is our children learning?
    Will the highways of the internet
    Become more few?
    How many hands have I shaked?

    They misunderestimate me.
    I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.
    I know that the human being and the fish
    Can coexist.

    Families is where our nation finds hope
    Where our wings take dream.
    Put food on your family!
    Knock down the tollbooth!
    Vulcanize society!
    Make the pie higher!
    Make the pie higher!

  36. Calvin Coolidge

    If that porky lass is a size 2, I’ll eat my hat!

  37. freeside

    What does fat Jessica have to do with the president?

  38. Fashion Female

    Why is anyone watching Fox News?
    Fox News is bogus.

    Jessica either lose the weight or wear clothes that flatter your weight gain like plunging neck lines and A-Line dresses and skirts.

  39. I completely agree with Ashlee on this one, and that’s why Im sticking to my original opinion from yesterday. “It’s called coming into your curves.” Every single woman eventually comes into her curves when they become women. Some stars that are starving themselves look like they’re trying too hard to be something they’re not. Some women unfortunately grow into curves that are never going to be spotted and there for are straight up and down in the waist line. Congrats Jessica for growing into your womanly curves. It’s nature, and people should get over it.

  40. Allen's Woody

    Next stop:

    Jenny Craig commercials and new spokeshole gig. Cha-Ching!

  41. Kara

    OK Ashlee….but ya know you getting surgery because you are unhappy with your nose is a great message for teenage girls. Oh the irony…

  42. Sexy Techy

    Size 0-2 means a female is underweight and looks like she has not reached puberty. Jessica looks like a size 10 right now. Perhaps expensive designer clothes take vanity sizing to the extreme and make a size 10 into a size 2. This is why some designers have created -0, -1, and -2 sizes lol!

    I am 5’2″ tall and weigh 106 pounds. I have never ever fit into a size 2; even when I was down to 100 pounds due to a stressful job. Depending on the brand I am either a size 4 or size 6. It would be nice if Ashley could have at least been honest about her sisters size. I know a lady who is 5’7″ and wears a size 14 and looks fabulous. It all depends on the type of clothes one wears and where the fat gain is located to pull it off nicely.

  43. Hannibal Lecter, M.D.

    In my professional medical opinion, Jessica is a laaaaarge girl…big through the hips…rrrrroomy.

  44. Gabby

    These pics are photoshopped, people!! If you look at the pics of her elsewhere online from this concert, she has gained a bit but nowhere near as much as these pics show.

    And really, who cares? She’s a ditzy celebrity with an annoying voice – but she seems happy and someone out there must be able to stomach her caterwauling.

  45. Guy

    I don’t care what you faggots say, she may be a bit chunky but she looks smokin’

  46. fact

    “growing into your womanly curves. It’s nature, and people should get over it”

    Americans are fatter than ever before. There’s nothing natural about that.

    We need to stop teaching “self-esteem” in our schools and start teaching science again.

  47. duh

    She put on this weight in just a matter of weeks. Let’s not pretend it’s some type of normal metabolic aging process.

  48. Doc

    #89 Sue Me

    It is called eating to much and gaining weight. Most Americans are 30 pounds or more overweight and come up with the standard curves argument like you or “It is better than looking like a 12 year old boy” argument. The bottom line is Jessica is eating too much and not exercising. Americans quit making excusing for weight gain and take action now by practicing a healthy lifestyle.

  49. Cball11

    Why do celebrities keep referencing Obama?
