For the second time this year, singer/actress Ashlee Simpson has come to her big sister Jessica's defense. In January 2009, when critics slammed Jessica Simpson, 29, for gaining a few pounds, Ashlee, 25, quickly stepped in. She took to her personal blog letting the media know that she was not in agreement with them.
Back in January, she proudly posted: "All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms. How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?"
This time, Ashlee brought up the topic during an interview for Women's Health magazine's December issue. She said, "My sister has an incredible body. I feel sorry for anyone who would judge her, because she's one sexy lady. It's disgusting that people would say those things."
It's good to see that even in Hollywood, blood is still thicker than water.
