Pregnant Jessica Simpson Jokes About "Fat" Comments

Jessica Simpson isn't shying away from a certain F-word that's been thrown in her direction since she started showing off her baby bump.

The Fashion Star mentor recently urged her Twitter fans to pick up the current issue of Elle, which features her nude, pregnant body on the cover.

"Last chance to see me 'fat' aka PREGNANT on the cover of Elle," Simpson twittered. "I loved this shoot, [and it's] only on stands for a few more days!"

Simpson's use of the word "fat" is the only mention she's made in reference to the unkind comments Joy Behar made about her on The View.

"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," Behar, 69, said last Tuesday. "Most women who are pregnant are not supposed to gain more than 25 pounds. She looks like she gained a lot more than that."

While Simpson has yet to take Behar to task for the fat comment, other pregnant celebrities have taken issue with all the Simpson haters.

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