Ashlee Simpson speaks out on fat sister, cites Obama Inauguration in defense

Ashlee Simpson doesn’t like the discussion around sister Jessica Simpson’s weight gain, so she’s blogged how disgusting it is, given Obama was inaugurated last week.

“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”

So there you have it: Jessica Simpson’s weight is off limits because Obama is President. I guess increased consumption of food is good for the economy as well.
