Jessica Simpson has reportedly gained 40lbs during her pregnancy, and it has not gone unnoticed and neither has the criticism that star has been forced to endure.
The 31-year-old recently posed nude on the cover of Elle magazine, paying tribute to Demi Moore's iconic cover, and she tweeted about it by making a joke of it.
"Last chance to see me 'fat' aka PREGNANT on the cover of Elle," the mother-to-be tweeted. "I loved this shoot, [and it's] only on stands for a few more days!"
Just last week while co-hosting The View, Joy Behar slammed Simpson's weight gain during her first pregnancy. Talking to her fellow morning show hosts, the 69-year-old said: "Remember the time that Jessica Simpson was criticized because she didn't know the difference between chicken and tuna? That kind of thing is more fun to criticize than the fact that the girl is fat.”
She also added: "Most women who are pregnant are not supposed to gain more than 25lbs. She looks like she gained a lot more than that."
Jessica has not yet commented on the Joy Behar's remarks, but other stars have spoken out against The View host.
Pregnant Tori Spelling told Celebuzz: "When women are pregnant, people need to lay off. It's a really special time and you should be able to deal with it in your own terms."
Sarah Palin was co-hosting the Today Show with Matt Lauer where she revealed her more violent reaction. "I would have wanted to punch [Jessica's critics] in the neck," she said. "It's none of anybody else's business how much weight I would gain."
Do you feel sorry for Jessica? Or do you agree with Joy Behar?
