A while back, Holly Madison was asked by the producers of her show to lose weight and she replied that since she brands herself as a ‘sex-symbol and not as a fitness model’, she is fine the way she is. This week, Holly is in Life & Style magazine, where she reveals her unretouched bikini body to show us that she’s got cellulite and she’s proud of her curves.
â€œI’d rather be overweight and curvy than super thin with no curves,â€ Holly, 32, exclusively tells Life & Style at the photo shoot on Feb 21. â€œI’m proud of my body.â€
For good reason: Holly has a figure most women would envy. And yet, Holly isn’t afraid to admit that her small stature doesn’t exempt her from what haunts millions: cellulite. â€œI have cellulite – and had it even when I was at my absolute thinnest,â€ she tells Life & Style. â€œI’m never not going to have cellulite. People need to just accept that it’s there and maybe dress accordingly or use body makeup to cope with it.â€
Still, when Peepshow’s choreographer and director instructed Holly to shed weight – after she’d gained 15 pounds following her move to Sin City – she was hurt, she confesses. â€œOnce I realized that other people were noticing that I’d packed on a few, I was embarrassed to go onstage,â€ she reveals. Making matters worse: her Holly’s World nemesis, model Jayde Nicole. â€œHolly needs to lose 10 pounds of fat,â€ Jayde, who once cattily sent Holly a basket full of candy when she knew her co-star was dieting, recently told Life & Style.
â€œAfter moving to Vegas, I lived in a suite in Planet Hollywood for a year and ordered room service all the time,â€ Holly says. â€œI like food too much to go on some crazy diet. French fries are my favorite downfall.â€ Holly also says she’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.
â€œI’ve always had a butt, and I want to keep it – cellulite and all. I’m not perfect, but I love my curves.â€ Holly tells Life & Style.
