Jessica Simpson as Daisy Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard

Singer Jessica Simpson has been a hot news item today as the issue of her weight hit the headlines again, this time in praise of what media outlets are referring to as her healthier looking “full-figure”.

As Fox News admitted, the star has been both praised and maligned for going slim, as in the Dukes of Hazzard movie when she played Daisy Duke, and a few years later when her figure rounded out a little.

This is of course a hot topic right now mainly because Simpson is rumoured to be in talks to be a judge in Simon Cowell’s X Factor (as the Hollywood Reporter quoted Simpson, “They have definitely talked to me about X Factor“), and because she’s about to marry former NFL player Eric Johnson.
