Jessica Simpson Celaic?

27 posts in this topic

I was just reading the latest issue of Elle...big article on Jessica Simpson, which mentioned that she'd gotten really sick last year with intestinal bleeding....and discovere that among other "allergies", she was allergic to wheat. I don't know if that means wheat allergy, or rather, something like gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.

Wow! That would be another coup for us celiacs if she was! Well, I guess she better not eat any of those pizzas she advertises for Pizza Hut!

Wow. It certainly sounds possible. Maybe it will develop into Pizza Hut learning more about it.

Could be--I remember Elizabeth Hasselbeck referred to her Celiac as a "wheat allergy" for quite a while before she announced on the show that she had Celiac.

I watched a few of the newlywed shows and remember one where she was just coming off a diet (low carb) so she would lose weight to film the dukes movie. She was with Nick eating at a restaurant and having a big plate of pasta and she was so excited to be eating carbs. She got full really fast and all night she complained she had gas. She was rolling around and couldn't sit still. She was drinking maloxx I think to get the gas to escape. Then they ending the show with her farting loud and long and Nick couldn't believe something like that would come out such a pretty little girl. lol It was funny but you could tell she was in pain. I understand it but I don't think alot of people do.

Since we're all talking about The Simpsons, is anyone else doing a Nelson "HA-hah!" over this?

I mean I don't wish any gastrointestinal disease on Jessica or anything. I just find it so deliciously amusing that Pizza Hut's main spokesperson can't even eat their product. It's just...funny.

Plus it's nice that we actually might have a real celebrity among us who is actually famous and stuff. Hasselbeck isn't exactly what I'd call "high profile."

OMG, that's exactly what I was thinking. She's SOO dumb, she would not be the best person to help the world understand the necessity for this particular lifestyle.

I'm quite certain she'll never be required to read a label or cook her own food, so - it won't be any "real" big deal for her.

:lol: OMG I think our friend Steve (GFP) across the pond really does think we're talking about the cartoon Simpson family? yes they are orange...but Jessica is a little orange also...... :lol:

I know.....plus she looks fabulous - I mean - - doesn't look sickly or anytyhing, and would be a terrible spokesperson and atypical example of the affects of Celiac......horrors......

you know what, we need someone really famous and older, like......Jack Nicholson or....Barbra Steisand? or something.....to realize the ravages of Celiac.....lose a couple of years of his/her life to illness, and THEN talk about it.......

I used to flip through and catch Newlyweds every now and again, in the beginning I liked her music, but what turned me off was the day she bought the 5000 sheets, (even Nick wanted to know why she had to pay so much for them) and she wanted to wash them and couldn't figure out how to work the washing machine :blink: I honestly always thought people were joking about the chicken/tuna thing as it was a joke on the show.

Hasselbeck is just as dumb. She once said that if gays were allowed to marry each other then people would start marrying their toasters. Um, yeah. I've always wanted to marry my Black and Decker Toaster Oven but thank god the Christian Right is saving me from myself!

Rumor has it that Hasselbeck is really only on The View (as the "conservative voice") because she's so stupid and innarticulate, she only makes her left-leaning co-hosts seem smarter by comparison when an issue is discussed.

The point is mute anyway. Yes, Jessica is an idiot too, but her having Celiac could only help. Even Michael Jackson helped a lot of people with Vitilago (am I spelling that right?) by telling Oprah that he had it and that's why he has to bleach his skin. Sure, none of us believed that Michael Jackson had to bleach his skin THAT PALE because of a medical condition (anymore than we believed that Macauley Culkin was going over to the the Neverland Ranch just to play pinball) but it got the disease discussed and now lots of people know what it is. Before it had been virtually unheard of.

i actually just heard about this on the radio when i was getting ready this morning...looks like a lot of people heard about it! :)

the report i heard was "blah blah i guess jessica simpson won't be doing any more pizza hut commercials because she has an allergy to wheat, tomatoes and cheese." i'm sorry i don't really like her so my first reaction was omg...yeah right *eye rolling* but i guess if people heard it from difference sources maybe it is more plausible. can you really be allergic to just cheese? or is it dairy or something... that's what made me wonder.

but yeah i agree, she is dumb and if people hear about this and then are like oh jessica simpson looks so great maybe i should go wheat free as a "diet" which i'm sorry maybe it's selfish but i think it's an insult. my friend's mom (who is just...don't get me started...) recently decided to eat "wheat free" as a weight less diet and i find it an insult!! she wouldn't even have known what it was until i went gluten-free a year or 2 ago. it's like she just give up wheat on a whim and it's nothing. it is NOT like that! it's hard!! it's not a choice so i can loose weight! besides i saw her eating a "spinach wrap" the other day...seriously you think that's just made of spinach?!? i'm sorry that was a little off topic, but i needed to vent because it makes me really irritated... ;)

You know, I have a very evil thought... Perhaps Jessica Simpson is "allergic to wheat, cheese, and tomatoes" so that she can bow out of her contract with Pizza Hut. Maybe she just got a better offer and down the road her allergies will mysteriously disappear. I'm not trying to offend anyone, just a thought.

Yeah...and in this case she could be the *perfect* spokesperson for Celiac and the effects of gluten on the brain. :lol:

I found it more amusing that although she was the Pizza Hut spokes person every time there was a pizza box in the background of the show (no matter how well they bleeped it out) it was a Domino's box. Haha.

ROFLMAO!!!! I am going to die I'm laughing so hard. This post is genius!

As for JS having celiac, I agree, she may be dumber than a chicken mcnugget, but still it can only help.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
