Simpson says stop!

Ashlee Simpson, sister of Jessica Simpson, got a lot off her mind on her blog. The woman has got a point.

Ashlee thinks women should focus on issues other than weightAshlee Simpson writes: "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."

Ashlee adds, "All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard."

Here's the story: her sister Jessica Simpson has gained a little weight. You know what though? Wasn't she like a size zero and what is she now, a size four? Jessica looks pretty healthy to us.

Emme, supermodel, television personality, author, lecturer, clothing designer, and women's advocate (wow, that was an impressive mouthful!), spoke out on CBS's Early Show. "Women have curves. If we didn't have curves, there would be nothing to hold onto!" Emme joked.

While Emme addressed her thoughts of the overly critical public and media on Jessica Simpson, she also indicated dislike for Oprah's recent weight gain confession.

"It's not that I didn't like what she (Oprah) said. I want, right now, the reaction to be to the hard work an individual has done so publicly. She's our national treasure. Instead of body bashing, perhaps say 'How about we try to do this a little more gentler? Let's figure out a different way that I didn't get to last time. Maybe, with all of the leaders, trainers, gurus, maybe there is something different that I need to do that will get me on a really good path.'"
