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 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."
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.
"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.'"
