The original Daisy Duke, Catherine Bach, showed her support for Jessica Simpson, who also acted as Daisy in Dukes of Hazzard in 2005, following recent scrutiny about the singer's new curves.

I think it's a shame that Jessica has been viciously attacked for superficial reasons, Catherine said in a statement to ETonline.

It sends a bad message to our young girls that in order to fit in, you have to be skinny and your outfits better make you look skinny, too. What I hope my daughters are learning from me is to respect themselves, honor their bodies, and show compassion and kindness towards others.

Her younger sister, Ashlee Simpson- Wentz blogged about the incident, saying that she is completely disgusted by the headlines concerning Jessica's weight.

Another reality TV star,Kim Kardashian said Call me crazy, but when I saw the picture (of Simpson), I was like, 'OMG, Jessica looks hot!'

The buzz began after photos of Jessica at the Radio 99.9 Kiss Country's Annual Chili Cookoff this past Sunday appeared.
