    That’s not a flattering picture but she’s still very attractive.

    I wish my ex-husband were that classy and chivalrous, he’s just an ass*ole. I always thought Jessica (or should I say Joe) made a huge mistake chasing after bigger and better things–you had the winner all along.

    I saw Jessica in concert this evening with Rascal Flatts, and even though I’m pretty sure she was lipsynching, she really looked fabulous doing it.
    THIS is the exact reason people have eating disorders and the main stream media, and everyone else who has made it their concern what she looks like, should be ashamed of themselves for stooping low enough to punish someone for how she may or may not look.
    Why is no one commenting her beautiful smile? She looks truly happy in this picture and that is all that matters.

    It’s official, this magazine has completed its transformation into a gossip rag. It now proudly stands with the National Enquirer. Congratulations, EW! Looking forward to how much lower you can sink in the future!

    So Jessica Simpson isn’t a twig. Big deal. She’s a beautiful, curvy woman with a body most women would love to have. (Just get some better clothes, honey) And I agree with the sentiments a couple of other people have said: Jess, you should have held on to Nick. He’s a real gentleman.

    I am SO glad to see a woman with CURVES! Of course, it’s all relative…her curves probably happen at a size 6 when most women hit 10 or 12…she’s beautiful. I like her just expecting us to accept her. She’s not preaching “I’m a big girl/lots to love” Queen Latifah kind of attitude; she’s a woman in the spotlight with a bad outfit. So what? :)

    It is kind of sad but please..Jessica was selling her body in her Daisy Dukes and other videos, so why the uproar when folks continue to pay attention to it. If she were say Kelly Clarkson I would say she doesn’t deserve it. But Jessica has sold her “sexy self” before, so she set herself up for it.

    She looks BEAUTIFUL. I saw Angelina Jolie in Changeling and she was so skinny that it was actually painful to look at her.
    Get over the flat chested skinny shank look and go for the womanly curves. More sexy and more healthy. You look fabulous Jess!!!

  • kitty86

    Ok, so now she looks like a REAL women, like the rest of us, and they call her fat? This makes me sick, I guess this society does push for anorexia. Thats a good influence.

    Jessica simpson is a celebrity hate/love her its all up to you. Making untrue claims about a massive weight gain would be unfair to anyone, especially in this case where it is clearly not the case.Jess is portrayed in a horrible outfit I would hope noone even related to me would dare wear in public but the fact is that Jessica Simpson is still a gorgeous celebrity with a sexy body confused in transition from pop to country /lol/..

    Skinny Jessica: “Oh look at me, I’m so sexy and pretty! I’m the greatest!”
    Fat Jessica: “Don’t judge me because I’m fat.”
