It seems like Jessica Simpson has been pregnant forever.

In fact, we actually feel bad for her…it can’t be comfortable.

But it appears NBC’s medical expert Dr. Nancy Snyderman doesn’t feel the same way.

During a segment on Today, she had the gall to call the pop star “pretty fat!”

A group of “Today Professionals” was discussing the hot topic when Dr. Snyderman started the name calling. Fellow panelist Donny Deutsch seemed shocked by the bold statement and said, “Imagine if I said that.”

Guest co-host Sarah Palin, who gave birth to her youngest son Trig in 2008, put in her two cents saying that if someone called her fat when she was pregnant, she “would have wanted to punch them in the neck because it’s none of anybody’s business…”

Carson and new mom Producer Angie weighed in on the controversial Today show segment this morning:

Jessica’s been refreshingly honest about her weight gain, even joking with Jimmy Kimmel that she feels like she has a “bowling ball sitting on [her] hoo ha,” but Dr. Snyderman’s comments just seemed in poor taste.
