Ashlee Simpson is defending her singer sister Jessica Simpson, who has become the subject of media scrutiny due to her weight gain, saying in a post on her blog that she is "completely disgusted by the headlines". The defense comes shortly after photos of Jess sporting fuller figure during her performance at the Radio 99.9 Kiss Country's annual Chili Cookoff in Pembroke Pines, Fla. on Sunday, January 25 appeared all over the web.

Under the headline "Since when did a woman's weight become newsworthy," Ashlee 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 as a headline on Fox News." She goes on arguing, "All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard."

"Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend? I seriously doubt it," she writes further. "How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now can we focus on the things that really matter."

In line with Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Simpson's one-time trainer Harley Pasternak also defends the star's fuller figure, telling Extra, "She has curves where a woman needs to have curves. We all go a little bit up and a little bit down. But she's healthy. She's still sexy. She's still a beautiful woman. And I have no problem with the way she looks." He adds, "I think if more people looked the way she looks now, the country would be a lot healthier."

Jess herself has not yet commented on that matter.
