Jessica Simpson's Pre-Pregnancy Body

Jessica Simpson posted a few behind the scenes photos and a video from her NBC show Fashion Star today on her official website, which is noteworthy given how slim the star looks in the summer right before she announced her pregnancy -- as opposed to her now 170 pounds.
The photos and video show the busty blonde getting her hair and makeup done (and even a little romantic hand-holding with fiancé Eric Johnson) and the difference between then, and just a couple of months, is palpable.
But Jessica has of course made no secret of her less than ideal eating habits, like when she dished about her early-morning eating habits to Elle. "I had cheesecake for breakfast this morning. Lunch? No. I had fried chicken," she admitted. Pictures of an extremely pregnant Jessica at her baby shower also generated plenty of buzz, especially with her candid admission on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she dined on "fried Oreos" at the star-studded bash.
Hollywood has wasted no time in weighing in on the controversy, with Joy Behar even calling her "fat" 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," Joy put bluntly.
But Jessica has a surprise supporter in Sarah Palin, who defended her on the Today show yesterday morning. "I would have wanted to punch [Jessica's critics] in the neck," Sarah told Matt Lauer. "It's none of anybody else's business how much weight I would gain."
But check out the video and pictures and you decide. Has Jessica gained way too much pregnancy weight, or is this normal?
