This 90′s star got her first break thanks to her daddy, even though she hates to admit it. She then reinvited herself with reality TV and a couple of kids. This week she hit up fashion week flaunting a new set of bony arms. Think you can identify this skeletal star? Click below!
We’re just asking. Cuz, you know, these are pics of Jessica Simpson snapped this week at the airport in Dallas, and she looks as fierce as one can with no makeup and a fresh fake tan. If this is what we’re calling fat, then let’s face it – the rest of us are screwed. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Scandalist had assumed that Jessica Simpson would somehow parlay her newly normal body into a series of magazine cover stories, starting with ones that celebrate her size: “Jessica: I’m Happy With My Size – And Boyfriend!” to covers that flaunt her inevitable slim down: “Jessica: “How I Lost The Weight.” But the singer is apparently bailing on a scheduled Self cover, afraid to show off her much-discussed skin.
The mag claims that scheduling is the reason she backed out of the feature, telling Access Hollywood, “Self would love for Jess to be on our cover. We’ve had discussions about it but we couldn’t find a date… she’s very busy.”
Of course, she’s very busy performing at chili cook-offs. Righttt. Jess may also be secretly trying to get back her bony frame, as she’s apparently hired a new trainer. You know what that means – in six months we’ll all be complaining about how she’s too thin. [Photo: WireImage]
Okay guys, on the count of three, let’s all take a deep breath. Ready? One, two, three. Better? Good. Now we can all relax about Jessica Simpson‘s love handles for a little bit.
It’s not that we here at Scandalist are put off by media frenzies, after all that’s what we do. But the discussion surrounding Jess’ slight weight gain – enhanced by a few unflattering outfits – has gotten so excessive, redundant, and just straight up cruel, that we’re calling for an end to the obsession.
The above NY Post cartoon is only a small part of the problem. We’re not sure if the illustrator is attempting thoughtful societal criticism or straight up misogynist humor (we’d guess the latter), but either way, it’s symptomatic of the problem at hand. It’s a lot easier to escape in the folds of Jess’s “fat” than it is to actually address the real crises we’re facing as a nation. And now everyone – from Today Show hosts to fellow stars – want in on the fun.
Hollywood stars – many of whom diet and exercise themselves into mounds of bone and muscle – are now giving the press the usual “You go girl!” comments in Jess’ favor, and her sister ranted about the weight drama on MySpace while then discussing her post-baby weight-loss plan with OK! magazine. The message – it’s totally fine to be fat, as long as it’s not me!
In her concert last night, Jess told the crowd that “I feel like in our world, we focus on so many things that are unimportant.”
The “fat lady” has sung, ya’ll. Belly-Gate is officially over.

Lindsay Lohan‘s people have responded to the blogosphere buzz that the leggings-loving diva is too skinny. She’s rumored to be shedding the pounds due to her Red Bull and Marlboros addiction and her tumultuous relationship with Sam Ronson, her flack kinda vaguely alleges that this might be true.
“Lindsay is aware that she’s lost some weight due to stress,” her PR peeps said in a statement. However, Linds has already remedied this situation, so we can all calm the eff down. “We recently did a photo shoot” they continue, “and she ate two full meals.”
Wow – two whole meals? She sounds completely healthy and fine. Nevermind the fact that every doctor in the world reccommends we eat three meals a day – we’re sure there was enough lettuce and cigarette butts on her plate to satisfy her hunger.[Photo: Splash News Online]
