Reporter Shaun Byron and Video Editor Andrew DuPont sound-off on whatever is on their minds, from politics to pop-culture, from movies to the main stream media. Local, national, world-wide? If it's in the media mix, these two are sure to have an opinion on it.

Jessica Simpson fat? Who cares!

I was at the checkout at a pharmacy when I noticed not one but three celebrity magazines with the now famous picture of pop star Jessica Simpson in a pair of what can only be described as mom jeans.
These same magazines advertised scathing articles on what they say are lurid tales of her weight gain.
Seriously? Who cares!
Are we that hungry to tear people down when they pack on a few extra pounds?
She's not an athlete. She's a singer.
And personally, she didn't look like someone who was in need of medical attention due to excessive weight gain.
I guess I don't understand what it is about our society that makes the lifestyles of the rich and famous so fascinating.

I have to add that Jessica looks pretty incredible for a "fat" person. I'm not a fan of her music, but anyone hounding her for being a healthy weight are pretty pathetic. Her choice of jeans on the other hand... yeah they need to go.

I gotta agree w/ Mr. Dupont there, Jessica Simpson still looks very good. Its ridiculos that the media wants all these women to be stick figures. Curves are nice!
