Kim Kardashian defends Jessica Simpson

Seen here in, admittedly, the best shape I’ve ever seen her in, Kim Kardashian is the latest celebrity to defend Jessica Simpson whose startling plumpness has become our nation’s greatest crisis. Not counting that war and the stuff with the money. In a move that just sent Jessica teetering off the edge to depression, Kim gave an interview for People which they described as “one curvy girl to another”:

“I actually love the outfit. I think she looks amazing. I love high-waisted jeans, I loved that belt, and her hair looked fabulous.”
Adds Kardashian, who’s attending the Super Bowl this weekend with football player beau Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints, “I get that she does look curvier, but to me, there’s nothing wrong it.”
No stranger herself to barbs about her own curvy physique, Kardashian says, “It doesn’t really bother me anymore. I love curves. Being super skinny just isn’t attractive to me. When I saw that picture, I knew everyone was going to say something. And I thought, ‘You know what? Leave Jessica alone!’ She’s fabulous, she’s a really sweet girl, and I admire her for putting up with it.”

PEOPLE EDITOR #1: Quick, who’s a celeb that will basically let us call her fat just by asking her opinion on Jessica Simpson in exchange for free publicity?
EDITOR #2: Kim Kardashian.
EDITOR #1: Oh, good call.
