Ashlee Upset People Talking About Jessica Simpson's Weight

Ashlee Simpson isn't happy people are talking about older sister Jessica's apparent weight gain.

"I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister's weight," Ashlee writes on her website after photos from a country music event showed a notably heavier Jessica Simpson (photosJessica Simpson photos).

"Since when did a woman's weight become newsworthy," writes Ashlee. "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."

"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. "

"How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?"

Meanwhile, Jessica's former trainer, and author of the '5-Factor Diet' Harley Pasternak, is also defending the singers fuller figure: "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."

"But she's healthy. She's still sexy. She's still a beautiful woman. And I have no problem with the way she looks. I think if more people looked the way she looks now, the country would be a lot healthier."
