'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: The Jessica Simpson baby obsession

Another Jessica Simpson pregnancy rumor is circulating around the Web right now. The blonde pop star-turned-mogul was photographed in a tight beige dress in Beverly Hills, and as the pictures surfaced online, the Internet lit up with the possibility that she might be the latest celebrity with a baby bump.

Jessica’s rep quickly shot down the pregnancy rumors saying that “she is not pregnant,” but since these baby-on-board nuggets of gossip are so frequent for J-Simp we have to ask: Why are people so obsessed with Jessica having a baby?

Every time Jessica is photographed with extra weight or from a bad angle, everyone gets fired up that she might be expecting! I think everyone should leave Jess alone and wait until she announces that she’s actually pregnant before speculating.

I know a lot of people are eager to see another Simpson baby (you know how adorable Jess’s sister Ashlee’s little boy Bronx is), but I’m sure Jessica and soon-to-be-husband Eric Johnson will talk “baby” – when there’s actually a baby to talk about!

Why do you think people are obsessed with Jessica Simpson having a baby? Are you eager to see Jess get pregnant? Let us know what you think below and be sure to watch "Showbiz Tonight" exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN for much more on this.

    Not need to get excited. Ms. Simpson has probably been on another Haagen Dazs binge.

    I too was curious about female celeb bumps. Especially that Rupaul. I noticed a very unusual bump on her. Maybe she just had a roll of life savers in her pocket.

    The media is obsessed with Any female C-leb who looks like there might be a "bump" happening. I just read it about Jennifer Aniston. It's all about jockeying for being "1'st to break the news"! Angelina stays pregnant, & there's been rumors about Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Eva Longoria (when she was married), JLo (during Bennifer) Gwen Stefani, Nikki Reed (of "Twilight" fame)etc. Recently I read Katie Holmes was pregnant, what became of that!? Really, this is how the media operates these days, I think the stars just ignore it!!

  9. no fetus-just fat

    Jessica Simpson got just what she wanted. She couldn't stand the tabloid coverage her ex husband's wedding was getting, so she had her dad take her picture while she was wearing a too-small dress over her fat, hoping to recreate the media blitz her fatness caused a couple of years ago at that chili cookoff. Better to have the tabloids talking about her fat than the wedding of her ex.
