Enboobening Alert™: Jessica Simpson

Publications: Life and Style, OK!, In Touch
Date: 1 Feb. 2010

I could have padded this out into three separate alerts, but that would have been too much as well as asymmetrical. Suffice it to say that Jessica Simpson went around all week blabbing about her new boobs, and she's tickled pink about them. I'm old enough to remember when real celebrities categorically denied plastic surgery. Obviously, that day is done.

It's also obvious that these stories aren't going away, so it's time for a new category, the Enboobening Alert™. With Heidi Montag last week and Jessica this week, these are confirmed enboobenings, but sometimes there is speculation about breast enhancement that could just be a better push up bra in a more revealing dress.

So far, there hasn't been a big backlash against her decision, unlike the massive scorn dumped upon Heidi Montag last week. This may be the difference between being a 23 year old wannabe celebrity and a 29 year old actual celebrity who has already gone through several public break-ups and ridicule about her weight.
