Vanity Fair Harshes On Jessica Simpson

In the June issue of Vanity Fair, writer Rich Cohen forgoes the usual bowing down that occurs in celebrity features. Instead, there is only a little reverential treatment of cover girl Jessica Simpson and a fair amount of criticism — well, at least for a glossy profile.

There have been danger signs. First, the sudden weight gain, as evidenced by pictures that turned up in the tabloids earlier this year showing the starlet, onstage, looking less than slender, holding the microphone like a turkey leg, and wearing what were described everywhere as “mom jeans.”

She didn’t want to talk about her weight, so, of course, that’s all I could think of—it gilded each question in my mind: What are you working on now [that you’re fat]? Do you see yourself as part of a class, with Christina and Britney [or are you too fat]? Do you feel that your relationship with Tony Romo has affected his performance as a quarterback [because you are fat]?

And our personal favorite:

As an actress, she’s slightly less skillful than the actress who replaced Suzanne Somers on Three’s Company.
