Jessica Simpson performs in Daisy Duke cutoffs

February 9th, 2009 // 231 Comments

There are exactly two possible moves Jessica Simpson could’ve made to draw attention to her weight:

1. Deliberately invited comparisons between her body now and when she played Daisy Duke.
2. Ate a small child.

After seeing these photos, I’m no longer convinced the second option would’ve been the lesser of two evils. Then again, her next gig is at an Idaho Chuck E. Cheese, so it’s anybody’s guess really.

    I hope she is happy about her weight and all the publicity it is giving her. If not, then she has no one but her own fat self to blame. She is wearing clothes that are not very appropriate for her weight, and that make her look bigger!

    Don’t wear cut-offs when you have legs the size of tree trunks!

    Ya’ll get a life men…
    ‘cuz obviously she did, and got all of you talking about her.

    OMG SHE IS NOT FAT
    she is actually a normal size now!!!
    a realistic size!!
    the only reason people are saying she’s fat is bc they’re comparing her to when she was 110 lbs!

    she always used to talk about how she loooved her curves and how guys hate girls with small breasts and waists. well apparently, they do and most of the world is repulsed by her out of control “curves.” Also at this stage in her life, unless she relies on the help of breast lifts and other surgeries, those great breasts of hers have nowhere to go but down- literally!

    …AAaaaaand how could I forget about that tinfoil-helmeted window-licker Knee Ya Ha Ha and his gang of Tourette’s-addled retards?

    @82 Your sense of humor leads me to believe you just might be Todders. Or his less intellegent brother.

    i honestly think she looks pretty good still. no, she’s not stick thin, but at least this girl eats. good for her. enjoy life. thats what its all about, because you can’t take it with you.

  10. # 108 – My guess is you’re having a few problems with ‘Free fall collapse speed through undamaged steel structure”
    Is it that type of thing ?
    Or are the “Dancing Israelis” getting you down ?
    Comments ?

  11. the obvious conclusion

    As long as Jessica cares more about what women think of her body than what men think of it, she’s much better off now.

    Of course, behind her back, the women are still calling her a talentless Barbie airhead slut, just like before.

    shes still hot id tap that

    That is one bored audience. Maybe they just read through these 100% predictable repetitive comments.

    SHE IS NOT FAT
    THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HER BODY

    I bet most of the people in here insulting her are fat or very unhappy with their own appearance.

    Hey Jo,
    Did you know there are other forms of punctuation BESIDES the exclamation point? It’s nice to see you understand the importance of diet and exercise, and realize that “it’s not rocket science!” You know what else isn’t rocket science? Using a fucking period at the end of a sentence. Try it sometime.

    YES I realize that there are other forms of punctuation than an exclamation mark! Maybe that’s just how I choose to end my sentences! Big fuckin deal! If, of all of the things that I said, that that’s what you chose to pick up on? Well aren’t you a genius! WHO CARES how I choose to end my sentences? Ya damn moron!!!!! How’s that for ya? Focus on the more important issues at hand for once! Not how I choose to end my sentences! I got my point across with an exclamation point or by using a period! Shouldn’t that be what matters most? Not that you had nothing of substance to say other than I use exclamation points too often? LOL Ya damn MORON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Erin

    oh please, come on people. she is NOT fat. Just because she doesn’t look like she did a couple years ago when she played daisy, does not make her a hefer.

    get over it.

  28. Megan

    Eh, so ridiculous that we criticize such a small weight gain, or a body that is hardly out of shape, if at all. Chubby =/= out of shape, by the way. I knew someone who LOOKED completely in shape, but they ate poorly and the doctor told them their cholesterol and etc was as bad as an obese person’s. Look at Oprah, no one makes a big deal of her pretty much constant weight fluctuations, and people still like her (somehow). Honestly, we should be making a bigger deal out of what Chris Brown may or may not have done to Rihanna, which is disgusting.

  29. amba

    It’s crazy how so many people are obsessed with what OTHER people look like, what they’re eating, who’s obese or who’s too thin.
    Who gives a flying F**K?
    Seriously, focus on your own bodies. That is the only body you should be worrying about.
    And yup, Jessica gained some weight. Whoopty do da. It happens. She’ll probably lose weight too. Just like the rest of the population does their entire lives.
    Get a life already people.

  30. You’ve seen those LEGS & BELLY, folks?

  31. Michelle

    I think its really sad we look at this and think she is fat. I sure don’t. This is healthy for once… Why does a person have to be so skinny to be in shape. Good for you jessica.. You look great in Cut off jeans!

    What none of you idiots that are calling Jessica fat realize is that one, the camera adds 20 pounds. Two, she looks amazing. Three, you’re just jealous. So stop talking crap about her, and try saying nice things about people for a change. Go Jessica. Keep up the good healthy image for young girls.

  34. Preggo

    I bet she’s expecting!

  35. w.

    I didn’t read enough comments to see if anyone else had mentioned this, but I’d bet money she’s pregnant.

  36. mark

    10 MORE pounds and I’d still be eating the corn…

  37. mark

    oh, and if she’s breeding, I’m headed for Argentina

  38. just me

    LOVE her high heel cowbow boots!

  39. tessa

    She still looks gorgeous. And her legs do look good.

  40. OhReally?

    Jo,
    Once again, your latest post was full of insight. I especially like the use of “ya” instead of “you”. And, yes, I did pick up on the message of your original post, but your ignorance was much more comment worthy. Plus, it’s not as if you said anything that the first hundred posters before you hadn’t already said. I really can’t believe you are 30+ years old. If you wouldn’t have stated your age, I’d have chalked the whole thing up to a dumb teenage girl.

    @33 — HILARIOUS VIDEO MATE!!! WELL DUN!

  42. Dinosaur Dukes.
    Ew.

  43. Clara

    This just really infuriates me…everyone is judging her and claiming that she is “fat” because we are comparing her to her small size in previous years like when she was shooting Dukes of Hazzard…would we be calling her fat if she had just become famous now in the weight that she is currently in? Probably not…then she would be considered hot and just that..no one would even say a word about her weight because she is perfectly normal! God forbid a female (the gender that is unfortunately prone to weight fluctuations) gain weight…or even lose it for that matter…women are either “too fat” or “too skinny” These poor women in this business can never do right…Leave Jessica and all women for that matter alone!!!

    you guys

  46. Sauron

    Hola! She doesn’t look fat in these pics.

  47. Josie

    I think she’ll lose it when everyone quits talking about it. I mean she tried being dumb and that stopped getting attention so I guess she’s gonna try getting fat…

  48. friendlyfires

    Wanna’ know why she’s gaining weight? Depressed! Why? ‘Cos she recently found out her father is the spawn of Satan and her soul is condemned for all eternity while 98% of her royalties are siphoned off by dear ol’ daddy, leaving her with enough money for Burger King and Starbucks. I predict another Britney meltdown.

    Mister Spears – another client warming up for you in the bullpen.

  49. Daisy Duke in the movies was airbrushed on the posters, and body doubles in the movies.
    She is being compared now to an unrealistic image.

    So what if she gained wait, big deal.
