Tori Spelling Defends Jessica Simpson for Being 'Fat' (VIDEO)

Jessica SimpsonJust when you thought we couldn't possibly discuss Jessica Simpson's weight any more, here we go again. You'd think in pregnancy at least we could give her a break, but fat chance. Instead the likes of Joy Behar has to go shooting off her big fat mouth calling Jess out for her weight gain.

On The View this week Behar flat out called Jessica "fat" in no uncertain terms. "Remember the time that Jessica Simpson was criticized because she didn't know the difference between chicken and tuna? That kind of thing is more fun to criticize than the fact that the girl is fat," she said. It was rude, wrong, and not even funny, and Tori Spelling for one is standing up to defend Jess.

Spelling told Celebuzz:

When women are pregnant, people need to lay off. It's a really special time and you should be able to deal with it in your own terms.

Exactly -- lay off! While there are plenty of studies that say excessive weight gain during pregnancy isn't healthy for mother or baby, what's excessive varies greatly for each woman. No one knows how her body is going to react to pregnancy, and no one should judge the way someone else copes with it -- especially another woman. It's one thing to question if someone in the public eye is making healthy choices, but it's another to call them names and criticize their bodies. Shame on Behar.

More from The Stir: Jessica Simpson's 'Excessive Weight Gain' Has Doctors Worried

Sarah Palin, while appearing as a guest co-host on the Today show, also took to defending Jess ... a little more aggressively. "I would have wanted to punch [Jessica's critics] in the neck," she said. "It's none of anybody else's business how much weight I would gain."

Hopefully Jess isn't taking much of this to heart. She's had plenty of practice dealing with the critics, and now she has thoughts of her sweet baby to help her ignore them even more. And with a reported multimillion-dollar deal with Weight Watchers to help her shed the weight post-baby, hopefully she'll get the sweetest revenge by rocking her Daisy Dukes again like Joy Behar never could.

Do you think Joy Behar was wrong to call Jessica Simpson fat? Are you glad to see Tori Spelling defend her?

Who would you rather look like,Jessica Simpson,even pregnant,or Joy Behar?Joy Behar is an unattractive woman and especially on the inside.I won't watch a show that she is on.Women should at least support each other because we know what it feels like to be pregnant and how different each woman is at that time.

The women on here never cease to amaze me. No matter what the story they always have to be negative and deragatory.

I gained a ton of weight during my pregnancies. I can't judge Jess. Besides even "fat" she is a beautiful woman. I may not be a huge fan, but she seems like a cool chick, and she's obviously genuinely happy with her life, and baby. So no one needs to be judging her.

OMG, really, i gained 55 lbs when i was preggo.....they nead to lay off her. Everyone is different and will deal with the weight afterwords differently. If they are health, who cares

Simply put, she is preggers, she looks beautiful and Joy ( odd choice of name) can go scratch! Who made this awful woman famous anyway?

I work in healthcare and it's really a problem when a woman gains too much weight during pregnancy. First of all, some women never lose the weight,and it compounds with each pregnancy. Second, it's terrible for the baby. We don't know if there is a link between mother's obesity and autism, but it's being looked at. Also the link between too much pregnancy weight and childhood obesity. Third, it's awful for the mom trying to push and have endurance to last through labor. Many more problems during the pregnancy and labor with obese moms. So Behar was not too far off, sorry Jessica is overweight, and may actually qualify to be termed obese.

this is why she no longer has her own show!!!  Way off base speaking of Jessica's weight gain.  She will take the weight off for sure.  Yea for Tori!

Bahar calling someone fat? My mom used to like to say, "I may be fat but you are ugly and I can go on a diet". Even as a pleasantly plump preggo, Jessica is much more beautiful and rich than Joy can ever dream of. What a "b"
