Usually, glossy magazines parade super svelte and skinny new and recent moms on their covers as examples of what you are supposed to look like after having a baby.
But the presentation is not realistic, neither ideal. Even when the stars take several months and over a year to get down to a super thin frame, fans don’t always accept the final output.
That is what can be said of the majority of fans responding to photos that past Bellyitch “bumpwatched” mom Tia Mowry Hardrict and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi posted on their Facebook pages, yesterday and today, respectively.
Most of those choosing to reply to Tia encouraging fans to visit her blog and check out her green juice recipe and Snooki telling them “this is what 9 months of hard work looks like” by urging the celebrities to stop losing so much weight, and essentially rejecting their very thin new bodies.
A few lamented how they preferred the stars a few pounds heavier.
Is this a turning of the tide and an appreciation for less skinny stars? Do the demands of Hollywood and the cameras conflict with what audiences want compared to what directors and TV producers prefer? Or is this just the usual response of fickle audiences?
Certainly, sometimes when a star gains weight, they are met with criticism like what Kim Kardashian faced when she gained a few pounds during her current pregnancy.
Hardrict gave birth to her first child, son Cree, in June 2011. Snooki had her son Lorenzo last August. Both took several months to pare down to their current weight so it isn’t as if they snapped back that quickly.
Darned if you do…I guess. What are your thoughts?
