And the outpouring of support
for Jessica Simpson
"She's a gorgeous girl," Carmen Electra told PEOPLE Friday night at the 6th annual Leather & Laces Super Bowl Party in Tampa of her "good friend" Simpson. "A lot of women would die to look as good as she looks."
In fact, Electra believes much of the controversy surrounding Simpson, 28, and her curvier body can be chalked up to the outfit
she was wearing the day she performed in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
"There's going to be moments where people don't necessarily like your look or what you're wearing, and that's okay," she says. "Next week, she'll rock some outfit that will blow everyone away."
