Famous Woman Eats: World Stares in Shock and Horror!

In case you’ve missed it, there’s been a lot of varying reports on whether Ashlee Simpson is or isn’t pregnant. The speculation in and of itself is ridiculous enough, as Ashlee herself mentioned in a TRL interview that something like this is private, and neither confirmed nor denied the rumors.

Then, news arrived from “a source close to the Simpson family” that Ashlee and Pete are planning a wedding for next month and that yes, the singer is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

*please note, I really hope, whether this is true or not, that they find this “source” and beat them about the head for a bit. Especially after Ashlee’s comments on privacy.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Simpson-Wentz baby boom coverage has hit a new low: Ashlee ate food. Twice in one day.

Obviously she’s having a baby.

Funny thing about eating: a lot of us do it. I’d go so far as to say it’s one of those little things NECESSARY TO YOUR LIFE. So, Ashlee eats twice, eats apparently substantial meals, and this means she’s PREGNANT? What the hell?

Does this mean she was pregnant back when she admitted to Bree that she had a weakness for queso? Craving foods as well as added calcium = OBVIOUSLY preggers!

More than that, what does that say about the expectations of women when it comes to eating? Remember my rant about body image and body size back during the “Jennifer Love Hewitt is fat” fiasco? And I find this very timely seeing as how one of my friends and long-time supporters on Buzznet just bravely confessed her own issues with eating disorders.

If anything, People reporting on this makes me feel better about the world. Because it means there’s at least one famous woman out there unafraid to put a fucking sandwich in her mouth.
