After being slammed for gaining weight, HollyÃ¢â¬â¢s World star Holly Madison bravely shows of her curvy body Ã¢â¬â flaws and all Ã¢â¬â for an exclusive unretouched photo shoot with Life & Style.
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢d rather be overweight and curvy than super thin with no curves,Ã¢â¬Â Holly, 32, exclusively tells Life & Style at the photo shoot on Feb 21. Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m proud of my body.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅI have cellulite Ã¢â¬â and had it even when I was at my absolute thinnest,Ã¢â¬Â she tells Life & Style. Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m never not going to have cellulite. People need to just accept that itÃ¢â¬â¢s there and maybe dress accordingly or use body makeup to cope with it.Ã¢â¬Â
Still, when PeepshowÃ¢â¬â¢s choreographer and director instructed Holly to shed weight Ã¢â¬â after sheÃ¢â¬â¢d gained 15 pounds following her move to Sin City Ã¢â¬â she was hurt, she confesses. Ã¢â¬ÅOnce I realized that other people were noticing that IÃ¢â¬â¢d packed on a few, I was embarrassed to go onstage,Ã¢â¬Â she reveals. Making matters worse: her HollyÃ¢â¬â¢s World nemesis, model Jayde Nicole. Ã¢â¬ÅHolly needs to lose 10 pounds of fat,Ã¢â¬Â Jayde, who once cattily sent Holly a basket full of candy when she knew her co-star was dieting, recently told Life & Style.
Ã¢â¬ÅAfter moving to Vegas, I lived in a suite in Planet Hollywood for a year and ordered room service all the time,Ã¢â¬Â Holly says. Ã¢â¬ÅI like food too much to go on some crazy diet. French fries are my favorite downfall.Ã¢â¬Â Holly also says sheÃ¢â¬â¢s not willing to give up sweets but she has decided to make some healthy changes: Pilates classes and 20-minute runs, and mixing prepared meals from the Fresh Diet delivery service into her menu.
