Just in case you forgot for one, single minute how much women in Hollywood are body shamed after their pregnancies, I thought I would share the headline of a Daily Mail article today about Jessica Simpson. More

It’s bad enough that we all have to feign interest when these Z-list celebs have babies and even worse when you realize that for the new few months, a lot of the news we are exposed to will be all about how fast Kim Kardashian and Jessica have lost their baby weight. I think it would be super cool if they made the announcement that they have decided not to lose any weight at all, and will maybe even gain a few pounds and they focus on what should be the most important things, their new babies More
Jessica Simpson is such a little entrepreneur! Not only is the star worth something like one billion dollars, she is also known for selling the first photos of her baby daughter, Drew Maxwell, for eight hundred thousand dollars to People magazine. But this amount of money was obviously not money enough so Jessica devised a plan with OK Magazine to make more money off of her “first baby pics” of Drew, by using some strange baby Jessica has no relation to on the magazine cover.

Jessica Simpson‘s wedding plans with fiancé Eric Johnson have been somewhat thwarted and she’ll be the first one to tell you. Multiple pregnancies and a considerable amount of family drama have left the 32-year-old postponing hypothetical aisle-walking. But some very loud whispers from Jessica Simpson’s baby shower claim that she is getting this wedding on the calendar before she conceives baby #3. Who is ready to see Maxwell Drew in a flower girl dress?! More
I can name a gazillion reasons why celebrities like Simpson and Kardashian can be picked on, but their pregnant body weight, and their not pregnant body weights, are NOT the reasons. This level of misogynistic body shaming towards women who are pregnant has to stop. More
Jessica Simpson may be pregnant with her second child — a son — but that doesn’t mean she’s breaking from Weight Watchers-sponsored public weigh-ins. Hardly. In fact, she’s willing to invite a major tabloid to her baby shower specifically to do the baby weight talking points. You are the master promoter, Jessica. I bow to thee.
We need to interrupt your regularly scheduled content for an important breaking news item. Jessica Simpson left her house in a t-shirt, sweat pants, and without mountains of make-up. That’s right, Jessica Simpson, past pop star and current fashion mogul, went outside looking like every other pregnant woman who has ever existed. More
Celebrity baby registries. I don’t know why I am sort of floored that this is an actual thing but I guess it makes sense that celebrity baby registries exist, because who needs baby essentials more than multi-millionaire celebrity moms who are expecting kids? More
Just yesterday I was trying to explain the difference between my own job, where I sometimes use stories about my daughter to discuss parenting, and celebrities who turn parenthood into a paycheck. These celebs seem to exploit their pregnancies and children to generate good press or sell the public some new product. And celeb mom extraordinaire Jessica Simpson just perfectly illustrated the type of child exploitation I’m taking about! More
But back to wieners, Jessica was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and she accidentally let slip the sex of her unborn baby with: The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous. After realizing what she had done, Jessica then said:
Well I guess I just told the world that I’m having a boy!
For years now, celebrity mothers on the low end of the Hollywood totem pole have been using their pregnancies and children like a career launching pad. They write baby blogs at People. They endorse organic skincare lines and “design” children’s clothing. Having a child opens these ladies up to a whole new world of money-making opportunities. And Nick Lachey has now proven that ladies aren’t the only one ones who can turn parenthood into a profit. More
Last week, People magazine was suspiciously complimentary of pregnant Jessica Simpson‘s “fit” and “trim” body. This week, the Daily Mail is following suit by gabbing about how fab the Weight Watchers spokesperson looks — but via a very much needed update on the singer’s legs. That’s right, leave no crook of this woman’s flesh unturned for Baby Weight Inspection. More
As much as I rail against the tabloids — as well as other media — for their “mum tum” vocabulary choices and speculation over which Fatty McFat pregnant lady isn’t getting to the gym enough, sudden respect for a celebrity pregnant body is also suspect. Especially when it’s the rags’ favorite lady to concern-troll about weight, Jessica Simpson. More
