Quotables: Kendra Wilkinson Wants You to Leave Jessica Simpson Alone

“That just breaks my heart. I feel for her. I was in the same boat. People just need to mind their own business. That’s a woman who just gave birth.  Her first priority right now is her child. Her first priority is not losing the weight. You should be proud of her for that. A lot of people just dump their kids off at nannies and lose the weight overnight. We should all be proud of her for being real and taking control and making priorities.”

Kendra Wilkinson tells it exactly like it is when it comes to Jessica Simpson‘s body.

I keep forgetting how much I appreciate Kendra Wilkinson, probably because I keep forgetting that Kendra Wilkinson exists. But I think she’s a surprisingly charming lady, and every friend of Jessica Simpson is a friend of mine.

Meanwhile, fellow Weight Watcher Jennifer Hudson had some words of her own for Jessica and new mothers everywhere:

“Try not to snack with the baby. My baby likes making cakes, and when you’re making a cake you always lick the stuff off your fingers. Those things, we don’t realize what we’re taking in. It helps if you write it down. Write down what you’re eating, you’ll be far more aware. And be active with the baby. Be active with them and you’ll stay in shape. There’s no workout like running around after a 2-year-old.”


Ok, obviously it’s important to be active with your kid. Based on my extensive experience in babysitting, I can’t imagine how you could have a kid and not be active. But really, Jennifer Hudson? You should stop in the middle of baking with your small child to write down any frosting that might have made its way to your mouth? What, like “hold on, baby, mama has to write down those five calories she just put in her mouth”? I get that a lot of people want to lose weight to feel stronger or whatever, but you know that a lot of people also lose weight to fit into society’s standards of beauty, and I get the feeling that Jennifer Hudson falls into that last category. So basically, ugh.

Kendra Wilkinson 1, Jennifer Hudson 0. Who would have ever thought, right?

  • Also, Jennifer Hudson, I don’t think that Jessica’s going to be running after – or baking cakes with – her newborn baby just yet. There’s a big difference between a newborn and a 2-year-old. Having had a child yourself, I thought that maybe you’d know that. Although, to be fair, writing down what you’re eating really does work (in my experience).

  • Team Kendra. And I think Jennifer’s advice was just a tad premature. Beyond not grossly overeating, dieting should not be added to the stress of taking care of a newborn, and breastfeeding often takes care of the extra weight.

  • hahaha @ tracy.

    There’s a difference between writing your meals and snacks down in a journal and writing that you had a lick of frosting. She should try to live a little. You can still have a healthy body & a little frosting too.

  • Team Kendra here too. It really upsets me that a woman must starve to death in Hollywood anyway.
