The not-so-talented Jessica Simspon graces the cover of three celebrity weeklies today, according to celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton. Simpson, who has been all over the news lately because of her recent weight gain, will appear on the cover of People, Us Weekly and In Touch. The latter has the best headline: "'I'm Not Fat.' Exclusive: Jessica Is Stunned that the Whole World (Even the President!) Is Talking About her Weight Gain." 
Tony Romo's main squeeze hit headlines last week when photos emerged showing the singer/actress' looking a few pounds heavier than usual.

While everyone under the sun has been publicly commenting on Simpson's bulking up -- including her ex Nick Lachey, who is lacking talent more than Simpson, and the even more pitiful Kim Kardashain of E!'s Keeping up with the Kardashians -- why on Earth is the president speaking out on this? He certainly has enough on his plate to be concerned about than Jessica Simpson's new curves.
