Jessica Simpson's Former Trainer Defends Her New Curves

Jessica Simpson made headlines this week when she showed off a fuller, curvier look onstage during the "Chili Cook-off" concert in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Her super toned 'Daisy Duke' figure is long gone, but her former trainer Harley Pasternak, author of The 5 Factor Diet, is defending her new curves, calling it "sexy."

Pasternak tells Extra: "She has curves where a woman needs to have curves. We all go a little bit up and a little bit down. But she's healthy.

"She's still sexy. She's still a beautiful woman. And I have no problem with the way she looks." He adds, "I think if more people looked the way she looks now, the country would be a lot healthier."

He added, "I would take her body any day over somebody who's emaciated and looks unhealthy."

Do you think it's unfair for Jessica to get heat for her recent weight gain? She seems really happy and healthy, so isn't that all that matters?
