Simpson Wades Into Sidibe Weight Debate

JESSICA SIMPSON has become the latest star to wade into the debate over GABOUREY SIDIBE's weight after HOWARD STERN urged the portly Precious star to seek help - the singer has called the DJ's comments "disrespectful".
Stern sparked an outcry after he labelled the Oscar-nominee "the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen" and claimed she will struggle to secure any more roles in Hollywood because of her size.
The shock jock also urged Sidibe to seek help because "obesity" is a life-threatening condition.
Sidibe's mum, Alice Tan Ridley, subsequently slammed the DJ for his unkind comments, and Whoopi Goldberg urged Stern to focus on Sidibe's acting not her dress size.
And now Simpson, who was criticised in the press for her own weight struggles last year (09), has spoken out - insisting Stern shouldn't have taken aim at Sidibe over such a personal issue.
She tells E! Online, "I'm actually surprised somebody had the cojones to say that. I just think that's really disrespectful.
"It's unfortunate because she walked the red carpet at the Oscars and she owned it. She was beautiful. There was no denying that she did not think she was the most beautiful person on that red carpet. She was just owning that moment for herself. She had such confidence and I absolutely 100 per cent think she could get anything in the world that she wants."
