Jessica Simpson’s weight gain

Jessica SimpsonPop singer-turned-country star Jessica Simpson is getting slammed for her new, curvaceous body. The public scrutiny over her weight gain came after photos were released of her performing at a Kiss Country Chili Cookout in Pembroke Pines, Fla. Simpson was wearing a tight black tank, wide belt and high-waist jeans that proved unflattering to many.
Simpson’s sister, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who recently gave birth to a baby boy, wrote on her blog that she’s disgusted by the unkind remarks made about her sister’s weight. “I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight,” wrote Ashlee on her Celebrity MySpace page. “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 on Fox News.” Simpson’s trainer Harley Pasternak also came to her defense. “She’s still sexy,” Pasternak said. “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.”

    I, for one, still think that Jessica Simpson is a very attractive woman. So what if she’s put on a few pounds… she still has a beautiful face and a curvaceous body. And, oh my gawd, she still has a personality, sense of humour and intellect, and isn’t just the sum of her parts.

  2. Jo-Anne. • January 28, 2009 @ 12:23 PM

    That is a very good comment Stephen, regarding her appearance.

    The media has always been obsessed with showing celebrities gains and losses in the weight department, particularly women.

    I find it disturbing to see anorexic images, likewise with morbid obesity, however this slant on Jessica being portrayed in such a cruel fashion as being overweight is, I would agree with her sis, belittling to women.

  3. My own opinion • January 28, 2009 @ 12:25 PM

    I haven’t seen what she looks like now, (the picture above doesn’t give a very good perspective), but it doesn’t really matter what she “looks” like, as long as any “extra” weight doesn’t affect her health. But I agree that she still looks quite attractive.

    Interesting that Stephen, comments on her personality, sense of humour and intellect. As I have only really seen her in some of her reality TV show, those aren’t the qualities that jump out at me.

    And anyway, did Fox News really make this a headline? My definition of “news” has always been something that has some quality of importance and relevance.

  4. Lou • January 28, 2009 @ 2:25 PM

    This kind of media story is precisely what’s wrong with our culture and why people, particularly females, are dangerously obsessed with being too thin. Clearly, Jessica Simpson is at a perfectly normal healthy weight even with her so-called ‘weight gain. Just because she’s not a size zero, she’s now the target of this kind of ridiculous media celeb-scrutiny. I’m appalled.

  5. My own opinion • January 28, 2009 @ 2:28 PM

    I also agree with Jo-Anne about the media obsession about weight, and particularly (or solely?) with women. Not only that, but aging is also dealt more harshly with women by the media. But it isn’t just the media, as there is a lot of plastic surgery going on in Hollywood, and movie studios continue make very few movies with “older” women as stars. I’m tired of movies with romantic pairings of actors in their 50’s with actresses in their 20’s.

  6. Jo-Anne. • January 28, 2009 @ 3:33 PM

    good points above. and I’ll take the “older” issue even further…many on this very site have biase with it and see reason to fling age related insults. I openly admit I am not a “kid”, certainly have no shame in this and feel these kind of remarks attempting to diminish a person due simply to age most disrespectful. I have a great deal of respect for my parents, and many older than I and always have.

    Maybe the portrayal of older men with many year’s younger women appeals to….older men?
    Ask Hef.

    (time for a huge cringe here)

    If you refer back to the Ellen Degeneres stoyline here (her being 50, approached by a major cosmetic company to appear in ads) you will realize, sadly, how many people here choose to ridicule this, all due to her age. I have seen the ads, and I, for one, think she looks amazing.

    I guess same people haven’t clued into the fact they will inevitably join the Over 30, 40, 50, etc. Club one day and or perhaps be toting an extra ten pounds on their way through the club entrance…

    Oh, to be judged for our hearts and not for our wrinkles and cellulite…

  7. Nancy • January 28, 2009 @ 4:20 PM

    And I’ll take your last statement, Jo-Anne, even one step further than that. “Age related insults” go BOTH ways…older or younger…and you have flung them as well. In case none of you have noticed, Jo-Anne is referring to me AGAIN, without using my name, so that when I reply she can turn it all around and say, “I never said that” and “you’re twisting my words”. It is her way of stirring up more BS when I haven’t even said a word to her on this. Just give it up Jo-Anne! Yes, I have referred to you as ‘Hagatha’ and ‘old’, I admit that…and definately don’t feel any guilt over it either, but you have swung back and lashed out as well so stop playing ‘MISS INNOCENT”!!!

  8. My own opinion • January 28, 2009 @ 5:44 PM

    I have not read all previous comments, I do not know the history of past spats, and I do not care to get in the middle of them. However, Nancy, your last comment is only a direct comment about an individual and does not contribute to the previous comments or the general topic of how the media and society views physical appearances of people.

  9. My own opinion • January 28, 2009 @ 5:55 PM

    Sorry, continuing on my above comment . . .

    Nancy, you state that ageism goes in both directions. I am interested in hearing your opinion on that further. I believe that many people would agree that society in general, and the media and entertainment industries, value youth and beauty, particularly in regards to females. Do you think that there is much discrimination towards younger people in the same way?

  10. tributegirl • January 28, 2009 @ 5:55 PM

    Yeah, Nancy, STAY ON TOPIC!!!!

  11. Nancy • January 28, 2009 @ 6:08 PM

    I do agree with what you’re saying My Own Opinion, about society, the media and the entertainment industry taking such a great interest in those who are mostly thin, young and beautiful (on the outside). I think the discrimination that happens with the younger generations is that SOME of the older generations think that because they are older, they are more educated and informed and when they don’t hear what they want to hear or see the behaviour that they want to see, they resort to calling these others “childish” and saying “grow up” & “one hopes that someday kids will learn”. I think Jessica is beautiful just the way she is and even if she was overweight and not quite as pretty on the outside as she is now, that as long as she is happy, that is all that matters and she shouldn’t try to change herself to please anyone but herself.

  12. tributegirl • January 28, 2009 @ 8:11 PM

    Well you certainly contributed to the topic this time, Nancy! 🙂

  13. Funk • January 28, 2009 @ 9:29 PM

    What a fatty! Trailer trash and talentless to boot! Women should work out and learn to eat healthy so they look good…plain and simple.

  14. Lana • January 28, 2009 @ 11:25 PM

    Women should not look like 14 year old boys and currently that is the trend and expectation of women, just look at Keira Knightley.

    Simpson is a curvy woman with breasts, hips and a butt–more like a 1950s pinup than an anorexic socialite.

    If women were expected to be healthy and curvy instead of to starve themselves so they look like teen boys, everyone would be better off.

  15. mandee • January 29, 2009 @ 1:31 AM

    i think that people that live in glass houses, shouldnt be throwing stones. about the whole age issue, first off, its off topic, second off, im very very surprised at jos comment about age AND weight, given the fact she has no problems dragging my age into things, and i do remember at some point her accusing me of being fat. the way i look at it, who cares if youre old, young, fat, skinny, ugly or completely stunning? the world shouldnt be so shallow and should treat everyone equally no matter what their race, age, sex, sexuality, size or shape. everyone is different, and it would be a boring world if everyone was skinny and acted just like everyone else. anyway, i honestly thought she was ugly even when she was skinny. im not saying i dont like her because of her looks, im just saying, her looks do not, nor did they ever matter to me in any way.

  16. demigod • January 29, 2009 @ 4:02 AM

    She’s starting to look like Anna Nicole..

  17. demigod • January 29, 2009 @ 4:07 AM

    Btw, what’s her trainer training her for? How to dunk a donut? 🙂

  18. George • January 29, 2009 @ 8:54 AM

    This is just another publicity stunt by JS. She will eventually lose it and people will give her undivided attention again!

  19. Jo-Anne. • January 29, 2009 @ 11:31 AM

    Mandee, please stop attaching untruths to what I post. In fact, I just recently on two storylines, one about Madonna’s child and also one about children listing being fat as their number one fear, commented how sad it was for children to feel this way…I have never called you fat and would like you to point out where I did this????

    Yourself, Nancy and T.G. all posted “fat” comments though…
    yours as follows…

    “this pic is stupid lol the kid looks like a white trash welfare case, the dad looks like a grease monkey, and the fat one, well apparently, looks fat lol. which i wasnt aware was a big deal, or a crime, or that she really had anything to do with any of this lol. my whole family is pretty much all fat people so im allowed to be offended for them lol. but still, i still think shes fat”

    disagree with me, I can accept, but you guys always resort to this kind of thing to get something going, and particularly telling for you when you JUST posted you didn’t want to be involved in anything regarding me???

    I am not interested in carrying on any kind of quarrel with you now, and would prefer if you could just stick to the truth about my posts. It is getting tiresome to have to continually defend myself against what I never said in the first place. Just play fair.

  20. tributegirl • January 29, 2009 @ 1:07 PM

    Hey, I openly admit I’ve made fat comments, but Jo has many times commented on a celebrities appearance in very negative ways, the difference is I admit what I’ve said, she hides behind OTHER people’s comments and acts so innocent.
    I also remember Jo-Anne criticizing Nancy for going back in the archives to find comments that Jo-Anne has made in the past, now Jo-Anne is doing the exact same thing. Hypocritical, once again.
    Now, regarding the article, I’ve never liked Jessica Simpson, or her sister, but I think Jessica looks ok in this picture, but I don’t like the jeans or belt at all.

  21. jete • January 29, 2009 @ 1:27 PM

    why are girls expected to always look like barbie dolls, when most men get all fat and loose their hair?

  22. mandee • January 29, 2009 @ 2:18 PM

    i never said i dont call people fat, but the difference is, i am allowed to because i AM fat. and if you read the entire post, i did specifically say that i dont think it should matter if youre fat or not. i dont remember when you said it, and im not going to search through the entire site to find it just to prove some point. i dont particularly care. but dont sit there and say youve never in your life time called someone fat, ugly, old, young or any other derogatory name, because EVERYONE has at some point in their life, and im certain you are not the saint you try to make yourself seem. in fact, youre the one that feels the need to continuously drag us into conversations that dont even involve us in any way (even if just simply by quoting things we have said in the past). everyone knows what you think of the 3 of us, and i do believe they are tired of hearing it again and again. let it go, move on, its the internet man. seriously, if you would stop referring to us, or bringing up things we said in the past, we would have no reason to feel the need to defend ourselves and continue fighting. i think everyone should just go read my post on daniel radcliffes article. that about sums it up.

  23. demigod • January 29, 2009 @ 4:32 PM

    jete, to answer your question. Because men’s appearance is not as important.

  24. sroy • January 29, 2009 @ 5:20 PM

    Beautiful body, please. She’s fat, badly dressed hanging out at county fairs.
    Don’t be fooled, she wil be back in 6 months to a year with a “a new body” and making the covers of the magazines again.

  25. Natasha • January 29, 2009 @ 5:29 PM

    I think Jessica looks hot, better see it shake than hear it rattle, LOL

  26. Natasha • January 29, 2009 @ 7:00 PM

    I wonder if she’s wearing extensions in this pic, her hair looks great!

  27. quinn • January 29, 2009 @ 11:03 PM

    Jessica Simpson is not one of my favorite performers. I think because she puts herself out there she has to be aware that people will comment on her apperance. This should be no surprise to anyone. She’s called fat today and She will be called skinny tomorrow. The fact of the matter is the showbiz machine is working, she is making headlines and staying current.

  28. Austin • January 30, 2009 @ 4:05 AM

    come on demigod and jete. Not all man become fat and lose all their hair. That is discrimination against males like me, and I am not fat or ugly. I think that man like that can’t become famous usually anyways, so u have to be pretty good looking and fit to succeed in the entertainment business, also talent. For Jessica Simpson, she is lucky to have the looks and the body. The body is easy to change, but the looks are not. (even with plastic surgery, not every changes) I personally like her and wish she would stop singing country and go back to pop.

  29. Austin • January 30, 2009 @ 4:07 AM

    hmmm.. It seems the time keeping of tribune is more eastern standard time. So, Nancy I did post earlier, but looks late on this site. LOL

  30. concerned • January 30, 2009 @ 5:19 AM

    it seems to me that many of you just have way to much time on there hands and should really be more concered about themselves and not what others say or do why argue about someone that a you will never meet and b does not make one bit of difference to how one lives there own lives or how one feels about themselves

  31. abster • January 30, 2009 @ 9:04 AM

    Jessica is still a beautiful woman with a kick ass body. End of story.

  32. Dee Dee • January 30, 2009 @ 3:24 PM

    Jessica Simpson is sexy and voluptous, the new Raquel Welch of 2009. So she packed on a few (20-30) pounds, do you think men want to touch skin and bones? Yuck! She will get the respect and be a good body role model to young women and teenagers. I’m not sure upstairs (her mind) isn’t quite up to par yet, but I’m sure she is working on it, too.

  33. Tyler Durden • January 30, 2009 @ 4:06 PM

    I’d still “do” her!

  34. 4thjet • January 30, 2009 @ 4:18 PM

    Jessica has alwqays been “big on top” and is never going to be a size 0…who wants to be??

    The one poster that said she reminds them of the 50′-60’s pin up girls is right. She’s very sexy and well built, like like alot of the rail thin twigs on tv right now.

    I don’t think the jeans and belts were a great choice to wear, but heck often stylists or the actors/singers themselves make bad choices in clothing that they are going to or have worn.

    This is not headline making stuff! So she’s curvier than her sister, big deal!

  35. J. Howard Marshall II (deceased) • January 30, 2009 @ 6:15 PM

    She’s trying to look like Anna Nicole Smith.

    I knew Anna Nicole Smith!

    I did Anna Nicole Smith!(thanks to viagra)

    And you Jessica Simpson are NO Anna Nicole Smith!!!!!

  36. Nancy • January 30, 2009 @ 7:37 PM

    And would Jo-Anne like to point out the “fat comment” I made?????????????????????????? Or is she willing to admit yet that she is a liar?

  37. tributegirl • January 30, 2009 @ 8:09 PM

    Don’t hold your breath (?) Nancy, she’ll never admit that.

  38. tributegirl • January 30, 2009 @ 8:20 PM

    Hmm, I was just looking at the Ellen Degeneres article, there was only one person there who criticized Ellen for her age, and that was someone named Sam.

  39. ke • January 30, 2009 @ 10:10 PM

    i never liked her as an artist. she has a voice (not my taste, though) but she hasn’t done well in the ‘pop’ genre, that’s why she’s stepped over to country. i feel bad coz i just don’t think a successful music career is going to happen to her. and the outfit is the way it is because the belt helps push in whatever needs pushing in. i’m appalled by the disgusting comments people have made about her weight gain. all this proves is that she’s normal and not some nutjob who cares only about her appearance. she’s gained pounds but has not become fat.
    this is ridiculous.

  40. Tonya Stallard • January 31, 2009 @ 2:17 PM

    I think she looks awesome. She is a beautiful woman. So what if she is not a size 0. I think she looks better now.

  41. Anonymous • January 31, 2009 @ 3:02 PM

    agree, 4th jet, I too think she looks 100 percent better than the “rail thin twigs”…

    why? Because, (and I’m surprised you don’ t know this as it happens all the time on here) I typed the post first and neglected to ensure my name was on it. Why, were you going to claim it as your own?

    actually, it has happened to me only on a couple of occasions, I’m sure when you “pour” over my many posts, you’re sure to uncover more…

    anyhow, it was my post.

  47. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:21 PM

  48. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:47 PM

    Hahaha! I’m not a bully Jo….I DON’T LIKE YOU! Never have….never will! Tribute has only deleted comments of mine which give you a blast for telling lies about me. You still haven’t found and come forth with the “fat comment” from the Dec 17 Madonna’s ex article that YOU SAY (another lie) that I made. So, here’s your “reality check” Jo-Anne….unlike yourself, I don’t care what anyone thinks of me – on Tribute or anywhere else. I don’t have to kiss @$$, suck up, brown nose or use any other methods to try to get people to like me. Now, it amazes me that you haven’t figured out yet that in order to get respect, you have to give it. If you consider me to be a “bully” because I “have never chummed” with someone who thinks they can mouth off about me and get away with it…then yeah, I guess I am your opinion of a bully. At least I don’t cry “mama” in a corner!!

    Oh, seems I’m not the only one who “feels the need to respond”…as you are doing the same about my postings! LMFAO!

  52. BizzleDizzle • February 1, 2009 @ 2:01 AM

    Nancy, you’re obviously an idiot. Jo-Anne, I don’t know who you are, but you are very well articulated and, as an educated person myself, I GOT YO BACK. And to whomever it was that stated “I’m allowed to call people fat because I’m fat,” you also are an idiot. That might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Go to a gym you pig. OUT.

  53. Jo-Anne • February 1, 2009 @ 9:14 AM

    “..on” No, I do not have the exact number of her posts that have been deleted, but in the last week or so, I have seen a couple of extremely vulgar ones she posted and later that day they were not here.

    She seems to enjoy this theory that I am behind the removal of all of her poor taste posts, refusing to accept the fact the website finds them equally offensive…

  54. Jo-Anne • February 1, 2009 @ 9:15 AM

    oh, and thank you for the compliment, BD…

  55. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 11:16 AM

    “well articulated”? Well, yes, actually Jo, I have to give you credit for that.
    But you are also dishonest, whiny, and a dirty player. Guess nobody’s perfect, eh?

    Nancy’s an idiot? Nah, actually, if you read her comments without your bias, you will see that she is very intelligent. She’s also strong willed and doesn’t take crap, and her comments prove that as well. And she doesn’t like liars, that’s why she’s trying to get Jo to provide proof on here of things she’s said, but Jo is hiding her head in the sand.

    “Go to a gym you pig.” Hmm, how come Jo hasn’t complained about BD saying that? Anyone says anything like that, Jo’s all over them, UNLESS they compliment her, then she lets the nastyness slide.

  56. Jo-Anne • February 1, 2009 @ 11:49 AM

    If I was about to start standing in for every person Nancy or you insulted on here, I’d be on here indefinitely, t.g. And, I’m hardly about to go to battle for someone who has referred to my “disfigured children.” Not happening.

    You’re always there to speak for them and to continuously ride the Jo insults alongside.

    I get how much you idolize Nancy, maybe you can let others judge for themselves whose comments they choose to enjoy.

    Nobody likes to “take crap” t.g. but it doesn’t make vulgar offensive remarks right, there is no excuse for that. There’s a better way to carry on a dialogue when disagreement occurs and your above insults directed at me yet again show your only purpose here is to drive your point home how much you thrive on insulting me.

    I get it, really I do, chapters and chapters of it here any time anyone would dare to think otherwise.

    maybe it’s time for a more worthwhile hobby??

  57. Bill • February 1, 2009 @ 2:53 PM

    These “news and gossip posts” are turning out to be a forum for some peoples constant angry personal in-fighting.

    Ladies, grow up!

    These posts should be a fun distraction from our daily grind of life which sometimes becomes a little too routine.

    Let’s have fun with this in a non-confrontational manner and respect one anothers opinions.
    By all means, we can disagree, but let’s leave the personal vicious attacks out of this forum. If this is not possible, I hope cancels this medium for celebrity gossip discussion.

    Please, let’s keep this fun and keep the personal bitterness out of it.

  58. Jo-Anne • February 1, 2009 @ 4:44 PM

    two things, t.g…

    1) mud slinging – defined as disagreement with people, sarcasm, etc. fine. referring to someone’s “disfigured, children” or to them as a f*#king mutt is not fine (speaking for me alone) There is a line that’s been crossed when mud slinging reaches this level. That’s my point.

    2) You have repeatedly referred to my being in agreement with “Steven”‘s threats to kill people, which is not the case. You seem to be striving really hard to convince others of what a horrible person I am, as indeed one would be had they been in agreement of killing.

    You have seriously crossed the line here and I am going to attempt to do something about it.

  59. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 4:58 PM

    I think she looks like sh&t! She’s completely gone down the tubes. Look at the pants, good grief. Im 47 and my a$$ doesn’t hang like that. She looks like a 40yr old trying to look younger.

  62. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 6:25 PM

    Nice to see you took the time to comment on someone’s “sagging a$$”! Maybe Jessica should come to Canada and go on ‘gov’t assistance’ so you can pay for her and whine even more! Hahaha! Oh sorry, am I “talking tough” again?

  63. Pete • February 1, 2009 @ 6:57 PM

    Ok. Anyone who states that this “new look” of Jessica Simpson is ok is just plain nuts. She has become overweight bordering on fat. She was in impecible shape before, and somehow fell off the biscuts and gravy wagon, or into it. She is a role model to many young girls who are fighting their own battles with being overweight. We seem to forget that the obesity rates in the US is rising everyday, especially in children. Put down the down south deep fried foods and pick up some lean turkey on whole wheat. As for the sister who is so offended by the scrutiny of her sister, need we be reminded that ashlee had her face cut apart by a surgeon because she felt she was ugly and amazingly looks just like a lean and attractive jessica simpson. Hmmm….
    So for all of those who are wining “stop making fun of her she is still attractive.” She is fat. It is neither attractive nor healthy.
    And to jessica. Get your chunky behind in the gym.

  64. mandee • February 1, 2009 @ 7:00 PM

    ok first off, im not an idiot, or a pig. people can be fat (or even THINK they are fat) with no reasoning behind it. it could be a medical problem, it could be that im really anorexic and THINK im fat, so until you know the truth bd(was that his name) you should learn to keep youre snide, rude, uneducated little comments to yourself. all you do, is make YOURSELF look like an idiot, and prove to others that you are not only shallow and superficial, but downright rude and ignorant to insult someone based on their weight. ok now, jo, seriously? you really have no possible way of EVER not talking about me? like EVER? seriously can you go one FULL article without dragging me into a fight youre having with someone else? all you had to say in response to tribute girl was i didnt want to defend her. end of story. but you continued to pull me into your stupid little fights. then you seriously wonder why people insult you? or say you have disfigured kids? or just plain dont like you? i think you need to learn when to shut your mouth because one of these days honey, youre gonna say the wrong thing to the wrong person, and it wont matter then how *articulate* or educated you are, you will have no way out. and NO that is NOT a threat. im just telling you, you should be nicer to people, because you never know who youre tryin to p*iss off. it is just a computer after all. and i also made it pretty clear, in more than one article, if youd stop dragging me into things, id have no reason to be rude to your or to say things about you and your kids. keep pushin sweetheart. see how long it takes me to drag your precious kids back into it 🙂 🙂

  68. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 7:33 PM

    Jo, First off, I didn’t say anything about your children (except to congratulate you when you said how well they are doing in life, and I noticed you choose to ignore my NICE comment to you), and I didn’t call you a mutt. So, why do you keep bringing me into your nasty comments? I guess that’s a question you will also choose to ignore, as you seem to ignore things that you can’t answer. I’m also wondering, do you have any comment to my NICE comment to you earlier today? The one where I said that yes, you are articulate?

    Second, I didn’t say that you were supportive of Steven’s threats. I said that you were supportive of HIM, and the one and only reason you were supportive of him was because he was arguing with me and Nancy. He was a sicko, plain and simple, yet you kept siding with him just so that you could keep on arguing with us. I don’t know whether you are a “horrible” person or not, but your actions have certainly proved that you are a nasty person.

    So, you go ahead, call tribute crying once again. If they look at my comments today they would have to agree that I didn’t say that you agreed with his threats to kill anybody. You can’t rightly deny any of the things I’ve said on here, as I am not the liar here.

  69. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 7:35 PM

    haha, ok, Stan, I gotta give you credit, that was funny!

  70. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 7:39 PM

    I bet Jessica’s a$$ would still be too small for Stan’s mouth!!

    Oh, I TOTALLY wish I could be there when Jo meets her match!

  71. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 7:42 PM

    What, you mean when she calls tribute crying, and they tell her that we’ve done nothing wrong? Or maybe when they tell her that she IS lying? Yeah, that would be hilarious!

  72. mandee • February 1, 2009 @ 7:58 PM

    lol thanks tg. and no, im thinking what nancy meant, was when she finally p*isses off someone she shouldnt (like what i said in my post). i really wish the 3 of us could be there, WITH A CAMERA NO LESS! and i just realized towards the beginning of my post i put youRE not youR, sorry. it was an honest mistake.

  73. Gina • February 1, 2009 @ 8:38 PM

    What the hell, I wanna be blue again.

  74. stan • February 1, 2009 @ 8:49 PM

    uh oh, correct me if im wrong, but is seems that whenever i get a compliment, nancy gets angry

  75. Melody • February 1, 2009 @ 9:45 PM

    I think that Jessica looks great. I think her outfit on the other hand does not do her justice, nor would it on anyone no matter your “size” you are. So why are we complaining- what could she still be a size “6”—wow thats horrible!!! The media should be judged themselves- I’m sure most of them are not that skinny after “gaining” weight!!! Take a look in the mirror!!

  76. Vicki • February 1, 2009 @ 9:57 PM

    For the short time I’ve been visiting this site, I have steered clear of the “feud” between four people, except for one attempt to enact a ceasefire. Sadly, that failed, but I was heartened to notice now and again some sharing of similar opinions, like how hot the “Lost” guy is:) I even read an occasional compliment.

    I understand that there is a long history contributing to the animosity between you and saw that as none of my business or concern.
    I hope you’ll understand how much I abhor having to involve myself now.

    I feel compelled to make a statement about Mandee’s comments at 7 and 7:58, where actual harm of some sort is wished upon JoAnne. I know you deny making a threat, but the intent is unmistakable. Furthermore, there is a reference to “dragging her precious kids in”. This isn’t playful verbal sparring any more… it’s appalling.

    Mandee, Nancy and tributegirl, we have shared many wonderful conversations. I have even come to think of you as friends. But if I don’t speak up now, I’m as bad as every bystander who watches bad things happen and does nothing to stop them. I tell kids they have to “step up” every day, even when it’s really hard. I guess I’m practising what I preach now.

    I don’t know what else to say.

  77. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 12:01 AM

    Jeepers Stan…none of you know me and I’ll tell you once again…I’m not angry. So what? So you got a compliment. It had absolutely nothing to do with my comment to you whatsoever. Sorry, but I don’t get “angry” because someone else gets complimented…??? There are ALOT worse things out there in the world. 😛

  78. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 12:07 AM

    Oh and to Vicki: If you are going to involve yourself and give “Mandee, Nancy and Tributegirl” the pep talk….why did you leave Jo-Anne out of it when she’s the one who causes the BS to start with? Not that it REALLY matters…just curious!

  79. Anonymous • February 2, 2009 @ 8:07 AM

    Nancy, it would have been more fair of me to leave you out of it, because I was only involving myself on that one particular point concerning crossing the line from verbal banter on-line to looking for physical trouble (in the “real” world). Combined with the reference to her children, this struck me as a terrible new direction in the messages to JoAnne. Mandee wrote it, tg seemed to celebrate it, and I made the assumption that you would also agree. I owe you a huge apology for that and I am very sorry.
    Nancy, like you’ve probably gathered from my previous postings, I do not want any part of this conflict. I come onto this site for entertainment and, recently, some genuine and meaningful conversations with friends. I didn’t sleep last night worrying about all this. I feel like I had something precious and now it’s ruined.

  80. Vicki • February 2, 2009 @ 8:09 AM

    Sorry, that “anonymous” is me.

  81. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 10:28 AM

    Actually Vicki, I don’t deserve your apology. I did not interpret Tributegirls “WOO MANDEE, YOU GO GIRL!!” comment to be in celebration of “physical harm” to Jo-Anne. I took the comment to mean that mandee is standing up for herself. I, on the other hand, said that I “TOTALLY wish I could be there when Jo meets her match!” I don’t really wish her any “harm” per say but, a nice Kelly Osbourne slap for lying about people wouldn’t hurt!!

  82. Robyn • February 2, 2009 @ 11:25 AM

    Bringing her kids into it is a new low if you ask me. There is a certain degree of entertainment when reading this site however some things strike me as wrong and reference to anyone’s kids did it.
    Mandee, stop calling yourself fat. Even if you are “medically” overweight or even an anorexic who thinks she is fat, it is truly unhealthy and disheartening to hear you call yourself that. You have made comments about being poetic and truthfully your comments are intelligent. I am sure you do write beautiful poetry and you have the confidence to do so. My opinion of you has been very good so please don’t stoop down as far as to wish harm on someone whom you know only from a website or worse, their kids.
    As a side note, I am a professor in the English department of a Canadian University. I don’t particularily deal with poetry but I can usually pick out a poet from the way they articulate their words and from their sentence structure. You, Mandee have all the workings to be a great poet.

    She looks like a pig!

  84. mandee • February 2, 2009 @ 12:28 PM

    awww thanks so much 🙂 and i never meant i wish her harm, im simply stating at some point, people that like to cause problems ALWAYS p*iss off the wrong person at some point in their life. i do not wish her or her kids harm, and i simply only said the comment about dragging her kids in it, to shut her up. considering every comment she makes to drag me into it, is about how she was talking about MY parents and nancys kids, so i ONCE called her kids disfigured to get a rise out of her. clearly, it worked. and vicki, i completely agree that tg was only commenting on the fact that after not saying anything for 3 days while jo continued to drag me into conversations that had nothing to do with me, i stood up for myself. i have said it before, and i will say it once again, when someone continuously eggs you on, you say and do things you do not mean to. im not saying what i said was right, or wrong. im saying i understand how all of you are looking at my comments to her, but if she didnt feel the need to always always ALWAYS talk about me, perhaps i wouldnt feel the need to get soo irritated i would need to pull her kids into something that has nothing to do with THEM…but its ok for her to pull me into something that has NOTHING to do with ME?! can anyone see what im saying here? and i dont see why friendships would be ruined with you, nancy, me and tg considering we arent saying or doing anything mean to you, and you arent saying or doing anything mean to me. also, i will not ever apologize for anything i say to jo, until she apologizes for always dragging me into things that dont involve me. i have already posted to her on numerous articles that if she would shut up and let it go and stop talking about me, then i wouldnt talk or comment to or about her, EVER. if she doesnt wish to be the adult, i simply will not feel bad about any terrible things i say to or about her. hope everyone else is having a great day.

  85. mandee • February 2, 2009 @ 12:31 PM

    sorry, i meant you arent saying or doing anything mean to US not me.

  86. Jo-Anne • February 2, 2009 @ 4:46 PM

    Oh My God, it’s all right here, mandee!! Me commenting a couple of times to others here, with your name NOWHERE in the post, then YOU choose to come in and comment about me – why do you choose to whine about the same things all the time with no truth at all behind it?????????????

    You are FOREVER commenting on my posts, negatively, and pulling this innocent why is Jo talking to me? Not happening, just look above for proof.

    you are really too much.
    calling my kids “disfigured to get a rise out of me” How sad and ignorant are you?

  87. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 5:47 PM

    I understand what you’re saying mandee…the same thing happens with me except she normally just throws jabs out there without mentioning my name, such as the age issue above ▲. Most people wouldn’t know she was referring to me unless they have been following along with this soap opera but yet, if I comment to her, she makes me out to be the bad guy and says “Not eveything I say is about you Nancy. Get over yourself!” Well, her lying about me was the last straw! Now it’s a free for all and like I said, I’d love to be there to see her meet her match!

  88. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 6:53 PM

    Nice try Jo…but I don’t buy your sob story! 90% of the time YOU instigate it! You just said “Anything I feel crosses the line will be addressed”….well same here! And you’ve crossed the line with me one too many times! Whaa, whaa, whaa…boo hoo…what’s been said about Jo-Anne and her children…what about the lying Jo-Anne does? What about saying what she said about MY children? Likewise, I would be surprised to see anyone blow that off!! You’re such a hypocrite! The way I look at life, is that if you can’t handle the consequence of something maybe you should have thought twice before instigating the BS to start with!

  89. tributegirl • February 2, 2009 @ 9:23 PM

    First off, Vicki, I think you took my comment out of context, I really was congratulating mandee on the way she stood up for herself. She’s always said what she feels, but often it seems like she’s a bit unsure of herself, her comment was full of confidence, and that’s what I was so pleased about.

    And when I read that part about “when Jo-anne meets her match”, I took it as her contacting tribute (as she indicated she was going to do) and them telling her we’ve done no wrong, or at least nothing worse than what she’s done. I did not take it as any kind of wish for physical harm on her, I don’t wish that on anyone.

    I’m very sorry that you didn’t sleep last night, and I apologize for my role in that. That certainly was not my intention.

    Second, Jo-Anne, “f@#king mutt” and “disfigured children”, are not things I’ve said to you, yet you keep attaching my name to them. And you still haven’t said anything about the nice things I’ve said to you, such as my congratulations on your children doing well, you are articulate, etc. If you are going to tear me apart for things I didn’t even say, and not even say a single word about the nice things that I DID say, well, I guess that says quite a bit about your character.

    Oh yes, and that part about “when they advised a young man to go after my teenage daughter in a sexual fashion” I beg your pardon? I never said any such thing, and you know it. In fact, I don’t recall anybody advising anyone to do any such thing. I believe you owe me an apology, but I know that will never happen.

    Nancy got it right when she said Jo doesn’t put names in, she just puts those jabs in there, such as negative remarks on people’s size/height, negative remarks on people’s employment status, and anyone who has been following any of this knows exactly who she means, but she doesn’t put the actual name in her comment. So mandee has every right to fight back if she feels a comment has been directly or indirectly pointed at her.

    Vicki, if you wish to continue a friendship with me, I would like that very much, and if ever you are confused or concerned by any of my comments, please, just ask me to clarify, and I will do my best.

  90. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 11:19 PM

    Hey, remember the comment where Jo-Anne called me a “freak”? She referred to me that way because I admitted that I am 6′ tall. Now, to me, that comment doesn’t really sound any better than “disfigured children”…??? The difference is, I’m a big girl and can handle myself quite well and I just look at where it’s coming from! 😛

  91. mandee • February 2, 2009 @ 11:31 PM

    thanks so much for the comments tribute girl and nancy. and jo, you completely were referring to me when you brought up the *disfigured children* comment i made MONTHS ago. move on with your life. no one cares about you or your kids or how any of you look, but you dont see any of us dragging up the past until you pull us into it. and thanks for seeing what im talking about vicki. i really enjoy talking with you and being your friend, so i hope my comments to other people (that feel the need to say and do mean and uncalled for things to me) do not ruin the friendship we have. and i was completely sure of myself in that post tribute girl, thanks for noticing 🙂 🙂 . i think that at some point vicki you will come to notice that jo plays dirty, especially since some of the conversations ive had with you, she has felt the need to jump in and cause problems when it has had nothing whatsoever to do with her. either way, it doesnt change the fact that i really like you, tribute girl and nancy. but its up to you if you continue to talk to me or not. i clearly cant tell anyone what to do, it is after all, a computer. (ohh and by dragging her kids into it, i just meant maybe ill call them disfigured again, since she cant let that one rest, i once again was not referring to anyone being *killed*)

  92. tributegirl • February 3, 2009 @ 10:42 AM

    That’s what I meant Nancy. On this very article she talks about how people shouldn’t judge others by their appearance, size, age, etc, in fact here is a quote from her from this very article:
    “Oh, to be judged for our hearts and not for our wrinkles and cellulite”
    In my comment from yesterday when I mentioned height, that was exactly what I was thinking, when she called you a “6′ freak”. I just didn’t want to put your name to it unless you mentioned it.
    So, as the old saying goes, she can dish it out, but she can’t take it.

  93. tributegirl • February 4, 2009 @ 7:11 PM

    As expected, no comment from Jo.

  94. HALETTE • February 7, 2009 @ 10:27 AM

    She is still beautiful regardless of her so call weight gain. Her talent is singing, not centerfold for playboy. Give and take the photo does show her a little thicker, but it could be many reasons for that; the angle the photo was shot or the outfit she is wearing.

    That’s all have to say. Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Peace

  95. Anonymous • February 7, 2009 @ 5:54 PM

    so i love how there is only ONE outfit that they show to prove that jessica has gained weight. even if she has gained a couple pounds, the huge belt and outfit isnt helping. So before you start saying shes gained a bunch of weight..blah blah blah. lets get another picture to judge that on.

    PS jessica will always be a gorgeous girl i think she has the right to be a few pounds heavier then she was when she was like 19! come people.

    To one and all of you who have degraded Jessica for her recent weight gain… Shame the hell on you !!! People like you are the ones causing all these teenage girls to develop bulimia and anorexia nervosa !!!
