If a recent tweet is any indication, it appears that Jessica Simpson is taking the ongoing conversation about her pregnancy weight in stride.
She reminded fans via Twitter to pick up her nude Elle cover before it leaves newsstands, because it was their "last chance to see me 'fat' aka PREGNANT on the cover of Elle," as she posted last Thursday. "I loved this shoot, [and it's] only on stands for a few more days!"
Though Simpson didn’t say so, the 31-year-old’s remark is being viewed by some as a rebuttal to “The View” host Joy Behar’s not-so-flattering comments about Simpson on her show last week, reports Us Weekly.
"Remember the time that Jessica Simpson was criticized because she didn't know the difference between chicken and tuna?” the comedienne said. “That kind of thing is more fun to criticize than the fact that the girl is fat. Most women who are pregnant are not supposed to gain more than 25 pounds. She looks like she gained a lot more than that."
The singer is expected to give birth later this spring.
