It seems expectant actress Tori Spelling is sending Jessica Simpson‘s critics a message – stop harassing the 31-year-old singer about her pregnancy weight gain and let her enjoy this special time.
“When women are pregnant, people need to lay off,” Tori – who is currently expecting her fourth child – tells Celebuzz. “It’s a really special time and you should be able to deal with it in your own terms.”
Although Jessica explained to Jimmy Kimmel in March that she’s retaining a lot of amniotic fluid – which is contributing to her size – Joy Behar was quick to offer her opinion that the Fashion Star mentor has just gained too much weight and amniotic fluid has nothing to do with it.
“Remember the 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,” the 69-year-old The View co-host claims. “Most women who are pregnant are not supposed to gain more than 25 pounds. She looks like she gained a lot more than that.”
Tori Spelling isn’t the only one in Jess’ corner. It seems Sarah Palin is also on the defense.
During an appearance on The Today Show, the former governer of Alaska told Matt Lauer that “I would have wanted to punch [Jessica’s critics] in the neck. It’s none of anybody else’s business how much weight I would gain.”
