Mariah Carey is a Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

by Chloe Jeffreys · 80 comments

in You're Kidding Me, Right?

The subject of today’s tirade is Mariah Carey.

Ms. Carey claims in the November 9th issue of US Magazine that her magnificent new body is a result of her “easy day-by-day plan that you can do” (emphasis mine).

I call, “Bullshit.”

Her plan is for-sure easy, but you and I can’t do it unless we’ve got some bank and a plastic surgeon willing to attend our c-section.

Because, without any doubt in my mind, whatsoever,  Mariah Carey most definitely had a tummy tuck.

Probably right there in the OR during her C-Section. What could be easier than that?

Her tummy wasn’t that flat and her belly button looked nothing like that before she was pregnant:

 

The belly we’re supposed to swallow, hook, line and sinker:

 

I can promise you beyond a shadow of a doubt that, after a purported weight gain of somewhere around 70lbs, with TWINS, that Mariah Carey’s belly did not get flatter and more attractive afterwards.

I’m not just bitter.

I’m a labor and delivery RN with 20+ years of experience. I’ve seen a bazillion post-partum bellies, and no woman who’s gained as much as Carey did, with twins, has a belly that looks like that 3 months afterwards without surgical intervention.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t begrudge Mariah her tummy tuck. Far from it. I say, “Whatever you gots to do is what you gots to do, baby!” I’m not against any plastic surgery.

What does piss me off, royally, is that she’s shilling for Jenny Craig, and in the article, which really isn’t anything more than an advertisement for Jenny Craig, Carey credits Jenny Craig (and working out three days a week) for her new body.

This is just plain and simple FRAUD.

This is exactly the sort of crap that makes women feel badly about themselves.

Here is this silly woman parading an ideal, that isn’t remotely possible, in front of the rest of us. Worse, we’re told that “we can do it too.”

We can’t. And neither did she.

I think Mariah definitely had a tummy tuck because her belly button is different and she’s too flat, as the nurse said. She really shouldn’t be using so many fillers and surgeries because she’s looking weird with the fake boobs, face puffiness, etc. People don’t like her for it.

Proof that Mariah Carey is a male to female transgender. She has the voice of a male castrato. Her pregnancy was probably faked.

Apostle Laura Lee:

“When they castrate a boy, his voice does not change. They have powerful octave range… and powerful lung capacity as the result. They become singers like this. God bless you!”

“A boy who is castrated prior to puberty doesn’t experience voice change to the masculine voice. And they give female hormones. Can create just his (Mariah’s) kind of voice. God bless you!”

Possible scenarios.
-He had a transgender uterus implant to get pregnant.
-His male to female transformation still left a few female parts.
-If he got pregnant, his muscular male torso helped him shed the fat.
-If he didn’t get pregnant, the kids were adopted, from a surrogate, etc.

Mariah Carey’s soon-to-be ex-father-in-law, James Cannon, posted Facebook messages that people consider to be jabs at her.

‘Here’s a thing, if the husband say no lies, and the wife lies all the time, what should that man do?’

‘Here a thing, if the wife put on 200 pounds and the husband like a nice slim wife what should that man do?

‘Here a thing, if a husband wants to have ten children and his wife only wants two children then what should that man do?’

‘If a husband tells his wife not to have an abortion, and she it anyways, what should that man do?’

After the posts gained a lot of attention, James deleted them and now claims they were excerpts from a book that he’s writing.

You need to chill out. This woman definitely lost weight by her meal and workout plan, she’s not lying. Her stomach is flat thanks to that. Her tummy tuck is common and expected but it’s not like she got lipo.

Chloe calm down, really. Women love to tear other women down. Mariah may have had surgery but anyone with common sense isn’t going to believe that after having twins all Mariah did was workout & eat clean. People very well know that. However, all Mariah is doing is promoting a meal plan program she used in combo with working out..whatever else she did is her business. Same situation with Jennifer Hudson. She clearly went under the knife but also is very toned. These women WORKOUT people. Try it sometime!

I know this is an old article, so I’ll just be quick about it. First off, I admire how you defend post partem women and seem sincerely concerned over women’s body issues. It is a serious problem these days for sure. I agree with you on that. Having said that, I think you might be aiming your anger toward the wrong person. It should be toward Jenny Craig who is the one really pulling the strings and for not allowing her to tell the whole truth. That’s what companies do and Jenny Craig is obviously using Mariah as a way to make money on their program, and it is likely that Jenny Craig encouraged the surgery and made her sign an agreement not to disclose that information. As women, we should educate young women to be smart enough to know the truth about marketing.

Jet, I’m going to agree 10000%! Mariah needs money, and Jenny Craig (and maybe People) paid her to shill for them. Even as a tiny little blogger I have experienced this sort of pressure to say stuff that brands want me to say in order to make money, or stay in the good graces of others.

I deeply appreciate your comment. I think it fills in parts of the conversation that really need to be discussed.

Mariah is a phony and a liar. Look at her last album cover. She does not look and never has looked like the person on the cover. She is a fake – people have tired of her, and she can no longer sing. Ofr course there are imbeciles that defend the photoshopping. Bottom line is that is deceitful. That simple. Mariah will not be having a future in the music biz – there is a God!

Mariah Carey is a fraud in more ways than one.

Fox News: Mariah Carey Accused of Plagiarism
—–

One contentious, unresolved case — morally, if not legally — involved the song “Hero.” Christopher Selletti, a limo driver, claimed that he wrote the lyrics as a poem, then handed them to his passenger, R&B legend Sly Stone, who in turn passed them to Carey.

Selletti was overpowered by Carey’s lawyers at every turn through an arduous process, and the case was dismissed over and over by federal judge Denny Chin.

Nevertheless, questions linger, since Carey’s defense was that she was commissioned to write the song as the theme for a Dustin Hoffman movie of the same name. But the movie “Hero” was released six weeks before Carey’s workbook says she wrote the song.

Carey also got into trouble with a song she called “Can’t Let Go.” Writers Sharon Taber and Ron Gonzalez said it was their song, “Right Before My Eyes.” Carey paid out $1 million to them in a settlement stipulating that no plagiarism ever took place.

Before she spent the $1 million to make the Taber-Gonzalez case go away, Carey sent then-manager Randy Hoffman, partner of her then-husband Tommy Mottola, to see back-up singer Billy T. Scott, who had evidently played “Right Before My Eyes” for her.

Hoffman went in with a wire and recording device, hoping to get Scott to contradict himself. The tape transcript wound up in the public court record, and I got to hear it a few years ago.

“Your actions speak louder than words,” Scott — who was also offered his own gospel album by Sony, according to sources — told an unsuccessful Hoffman at one point. “They always have.”

Carey has several other blots on her record in the songwriting department, including lifting the music from Maurice White’s famous hit by the Emotions, called “Best of My Love,” and re-recording it without his permission or knowledge as “Emotions.” White called his lawyers, who secured a hefty payment.

“Sampling is one thing,” White said, “but she took the whole song.”

Carey and company paid roughly half a million dollars to Detroit songwriter Kevin McCord; a musicologist had testified that “Make It Happen,” which was credited to Carey and C&C Music Factory, had heavily borrowed from McCord’s song, “I Want to Thank You,” which had been a minor hit for Alicia Myers some years earlier — albeit recorded in a different key.

But Mariah has quite possibly met her match in Seth Swirsky, who says, “I don’t consider her a bona fide songwriter.” Unlike the writers in these other cases, he has the resources and the resumé to keep fighting for his rights.

The song in question is “Thank God I Found You,” a No. 1 hit Mariah had in 1999 with the group Xscape singing back up and Jermaine Dupri credited as producer.

Songwriter Seth Swirsky — who’s got 30 gold and platinum records and is married to the head of EMI Music Publishing — says that “Thank God” is in fact a re-doing of “Just One of Those Love Songs,” a track he and Warryn Campbell wrote for Xscape.

A chain exists linking Dupri and Xscape (featuring regular Carey back-up singer Kandi Burruss) to Carey. But more interestingly, Swirsky — who is also well-known as a writer of baseball books — may have the smoking gun.

When he first discovered that he’d been ripped off, he called the studio where Carey recorded the song, and requested a copy of the work tape that was used when Carey was composing with producers Jimmy Jam Harris and Terry Lewis.

“You can hear Mariah saying to them, I have a tune stuck in my head,” Swirsky told me yesterday. “They don’t know, they’re just writing down what she says.”

Work tapes and notebooks of writing sessions have haunted Carey in other plagiarism cases, of which there have been plenty over the years.

Not to mention, Mariah Carey is now considered a studio fraud. She cannot sing live like she can on the recordings. She has supposedly been redubbing her live performances in the studio. Her microphone allegedly is turned off as a recording of a high note is played back, then her microphone is turned back on. Studio trickery has conned the masses into seeing her as being fantastically gifted from God. Her record company allegedly used payola to get her singles to #1 in the charts. She was married to the record label executive, after all. With a celebrity make-up artist, a celebrity hair stylist, plastic surgery, photoshop, paying off radio stations to play less of other singers and get her to #1, countless cases of song plagiarism, studio vocal trickery and being married to the record label executive, the masses seemed to fall under the spell of her lies. They put her on a pedestal, calling her Queen Mariah and they would be her lambs. Her and her $510 million net worth don’t seem to care a whit about truth.

Hi:

This dullard keeps bashing Mariah Carey with the same tired, uninformed comment on a number of blogs, including this one, with vitriolic drivel like: “Not to mention, Mariah Carey is now considered a studio fraud. She cannot sing live like she can on the recordings.”

Now let’s set the record straight on Mariah’s vocal decline:

(1) First of all, if Mariah Carey is a studio fraud, then what about other ‘multi-octave’ wonders through the years like Yma Sumac, Minnie Riperton, Cheryl Lynn, Lisa Fischer, Debelah Morgan, etc.? Are they also guilty of studio gimmickry?

(2) Secondly, this person is woefully ignorant of Mariah’s vocal fragility. She’s never hidden the fact that she sings with vocal nodules. Does he/she have any idea how difficult it is to sing with nodules on your vocal cords? Ask Julie Andrews and Celine Dion, they’ll tell you.

(3) A number of mainstream popular music singers have successful vocal techniques, but a SUCCESSFUL vocal technique is not necessarily a HEALTHY vocal technique.

For example, WHITNEY HOUSTON’s vibrato was splendid, but her wobbling jaw at times indicated too much breath pressure under the larynx, which contributes to early vocal deterioration. CHRISTINA AGUILERA imitated ‘whistle tones’ too often by forcing her falsetto voice beyond its natural ceiling, which can also contribute to early vocal deterioration. ADELE’s upper range belting led to a premature vocal hemorrhage which necessitated rehabilitative surgery.

In the fascinating case of Mariah Carey, she has had an essentially solid technique EXCEPT, ironically, when singing her famous high notes, whether in chest voice or ‘whistle register.’ She has a lyric voice type, which is naturally less powerful and voluminous than dramatic and spinto voices, but in order to compete with great power-belters like Whitney Houston she pushed her upper belting range to such limits in her prime that it was only a matter of time before her already nodule-afflicted vocal folds began to give out on her.

Additionally, while lauded for her astounding agility in the mythic ‘whistle register’ (and she has NO EQUAL here in agility apart from Debelah Morgan), Mariah’s approach to these super-high tones helped to do her in. She has admitted to having taught herself to sing these whistle tones in imitation of Minnie Riperton, but the latter was classically highly trained, as are Debelah Morgan and Beyonce Knowles. Thus their approach to high head voice and whistle register tones is a healthier one than Mariah’s.

In contrast, Carey makes use of the FALSE CORD FUNCTION, which places immense breath pressure on the vocal folds, causing the worsening of existing nodules, loss of elasticity, and worst of all, vocal hemorrhaging and even permanent damage.

Here is a quote on the matter from renowned vocal pedagogue and voice trainer, Michael Mayer:

“I have long said that Mariah Carey destroyed her voice, even though everyone thought she was so great. She definitely was an exciting singer. I enjoyed her early hits. But I also noticed by the late 90s she was already singing a lower tessitura and not as vocally explosive. Many critics called this increased artistry and maturity, but I called it vocal decline. . . .

“Getting back to Mariah, she sang both her high voice and belt voice with excess breath. This is the reason for her vocal decline. I don’t think it had much effect on her popularity. But it certainly did on her vocal health and longevity.”

(4) Then there is also Mariah’s extreme PERFECTIONISM. Not only does she record songs and parts of songs over and over in the studio, but she has this penchant for incredibly demanding and complex VOCAL LAYERING—up to four layers or stacks of vocals—all her own—on a single selection like ‘Angel (The Prelude).’ Now imagine the strain on her vocal cords of a full album of complex vocal stacking!

Quite frankly, she could never hope to sing many of these selections live, but people expect her to sound like she does on the cd in spite of her obvious vocal deterioration, so she sometimes sings to backing vocals and even lip-synchs the more challenging parts of the hits she can no longer do full justice to in a live setting.

Now, it is clear that Mariah has not accepted the fact of her vocal deterioration, but why can’t people just give this remarkable woman–a mere human being like any of us–a bloody break already?

Peace.

Guest May 10, 2016 at 10:26 am

In response to Reality Check, who called Guest a “dullard” with the “same tired, uninformed comment”.

Mariah Carey IS classically highly trained. Her mother was an opera singer and vocal coach. Mariah sang opera by the age of 3. Her mother had connections in the music industry.

Beyonce, Adele, Christina Aguilera, etc. are suspected male to female transgender. Their voices are unnatural for women.

Reality Chexk August 17, 2016 at 8:43 am

This is in response to the statement, ‘Mariah Carey IS classically highly trained.’

Really? And yet she uses and abuses the FALSE CORD FUNCTION, and utilizes a DISCONNECTED WHISTLE REGISTER?

Her voice is not properly equalized in the classical sense, and she sings too often in ‘breathy’ tones. Singing with excess breath DOES contribute to vocal deterioration over time.

[This, of course, is not to deny her lovely timbre, amazing agility, and innate musicality}.

Peace.

Likely a very old post by now.. I agree with Chloe. I am also a registered nurse (trauma and other stuff) and I smell B.S. also. If you’re going to be on a cover and tell such stories, one must quantify it by saying how this belly happened, and how much you paid for that surgeon. Lying to women who do not have the means or desire to plasticize is kind of wrong. I’m all for plastics, too. Whatever floats your boat and makes you feel better. Just keep the complacent blabber to yourself. You are not helping anyone, Mariah! 🙂

It is a very damaging message. I don’t care if she had an entire body lift, just don’t tell me that you look that way because of an over-priced diet plan that many young moms can’t afford anyway. Besides, dieting while breastfeeding may not be healthy for mom or baby.

I have to call foul on this article of yours. You have so many facts wrong its ridiculous. Did you even read the article or just the cover? Mariah had twins in April, this is an October/November issue. That’s 6-7 months. Mariah said 40 of her 70lbs was water weight and Jenny helped her to lose the extra 30. Mariah was live on the HSN in August talking about it. She looks a lot heavier then than she looks in this cover, so clearly that’s true. Jenny helped her to lose weight. I don’t know if Mariah has ever got a tummy tuck, but no one ever asked her either. I think it sucks that people believe whatever gossip says and actually judges celebs by the rumor mills. No one even knows these people. Mariah has had weight problems and no problem giving her nutritionists/trainers/diet experts shout outs in the past. She can tell you exactly who she’s been working with.

She says she lost weight with Jenny, not that she got her tummy back with it. I don’t get what’s the big deal when it comes to whether or not someone wants to admit to having cosmetic surgery done, most people don’t and shouldn’t have to if they don’t feel comfortable doing so. Anyone would seriously have to be an idiot to think that they will look like Mariah if they lose weight with Jenny. I would like to believe people are much smarter with that.

No I do not. Because she could have very well lost all her weight with Jenny, and that is what the article is supposed to be about, but in the case of loose skin and whatnot form twins and so forth people should be intelligent enough to know that weight lose will not change that and if anything perhaps exacerbate the issue. Of course she got a tummy tuck and probably a million and one other things. But I don’t think she needs to add that as it has nothing to do with the weight loss but the aftermath of child birth.

Reply

Chloe Jeffreys June 1, 2014 at 12:51 pm

The article was supposed to be about how she got her pre-pregnant body back. If it was simply an ad for Jenny Craig it was not labeled as such which it would have to be by Federal law. And if People Magazine is putting unlabeled advertisements on the cover of its magazines then that’s against the law, too.

In case this was missed, I became aware of this article when my one day POSTPARTUM patient (I’m and L&D RN) was reading the magazine and talking about how she didn’t think she was going to be able to get her pre-pregnant body back so quickly.

Women who have just given birth are emotionally fragile and worried that their bodies are not going to be the same. At the very least this was extremely misleading advertising for Jenny Craig, and at worst it is outright fraud being perpetuated on vulnerable women.

And I completely disagree that “people should be intelligent enough”. If people were intelligent enough there would never be any fad diets, weird diet pills, or supposedly magical creams and jellies that make fat melt off effortlessly.

Honestly you have too much time on your hands. To sit and break down an article like this is sad. And no she didn’t have a tummy tuck. The pic on the magazine was photo shopped, like all magazine photos are. She has little to no say over that, honestly. You look at her belly button and it looks the same now as in the first pic (not on magazines though).

Believe it or not, some people can actually lose weight themselves without needing to get a stupid unnecessary surgery for it. Its ridiculous.

Jamie May 1, 2014 at 7:56 am

It wasn’t photoshopped you idiot! You can see the other photos (which are untouched) and they tummy looks perfectly round. Mariah Carey has had everything in the book done – face peel, collagen injections, you name it! Mind you, the public are idiots so they’d probably believe what she says. Sad!!

I had a tummy tuck 3 years ago. My belly button is higher and flatter and have very little scaring. I also, had my muscles tightened, so my abs are very tight. Unlike Mariah, I have no problem telling people. I’m not a celebrity. I do not condone being dishonest, especially when it is so obvious.

Chloe Jeffreys December 31, 2013 at 8:44 am

Laurie, good for you. I want one myself. I have nothing against plastic surgery. After seeing the twin mom bellies I’ve seen in my career as a labor and delivery RN I wouldn’t blame any woman for wanting to have one. But what Mariah Carey, People Magazine, and Jenny Craig are doing is just false advertising. And it isn’t benign. Women are hurt by these unrealistic and unreal standards of beauty.

I became aware of this article in People when my 1-day postpartum patient had her magazine and was reading the article. My patient herself said something negative about herself in comparison to Mariah Carey. My outrage didn’t spring out of a vacuum. Women do compare themselves to these celebrities. That’s why companies like Jenny Craig pay them millions to shill their product. They know that women will look at those pictures and run out and buy Jenny Craig to get Mariah’s results that didn’t come from Jenny Craig, but came from the surgeon’s knife.

I don’t know what is wrong with the person who wrote this article – or many other people who ASSUME what things mean when they are said or printed.
Mariah claimed to lose 30 lbs on Jenny Craig. No where or no time did she claim to get a flat tummy or her new look from Jenny Craig – only that she lost 30lbs. The title says “I got my body back” – which is again, true – she did get her body back. Even if Mariah said “I got my new body back with the help of Jenny Craig” – this would be true also because the Jenny Craig program contributed to the weight loss. Tummy tucks do not take off 30 lbs – her easy day-to-day plan did.
Also, I bet anything her contract with Jenny Craig says she can’t reveal she had a tummy tuck because the marketing department knows that people would discredit Jenny Craig altogether.
Again – Mariah NEVER credited her flat tummy to Jenny Craig, only that she lost 30 lbs.

I think you missed the point and you are arguing semantically. Poor arguments madam btw!!!! She is giving a false impression regardless of what that article says. Also, most women with twins have stretch marks. Where are hers? She was built bad and looked shotty in her 20’s and now she looks miraculously different with no battle scars. Chile cheese! You and Mariah need a gut check.

I’ve often thought these photos taken two months after her delivery, which supposedly show her working out are really of her return home after tummy tuck surgery. Look at the way they guard her and she is protecting her belly! And right around the time she had to do something or would have lost that Jenny Craig endorsement!

Tia_Blu January 18, 2012 at 5:55 am

Okay, I’m a Mariah fan as well but I’m not so obsessed with Mariah to believe everything that comes out of her mouth, You can tell she had a Tummy Tuck by the way her belly button looks . Her Belly Button is perfectly round and flat, her belly button wasn’t even perfectly flat and round before she got pregnant, even when she had slimmed down in the past her Belly Button was never perfectly round and flat it was more like an oval shape.

You having twins is not going to give you a perfectly round,flat and also higher belly button, they have to remove your belly button and place it in a higher position by cutting a hole into the upper part of your stomach and pushing your old belly button up through it that’s why they always end up looking so round and flat and the onlooker can always tell once they know what to look for .

And also, if the fans will remember … Mariah had a beauty mark on her stomach to her left… where is it at now ? Don’t tell me she covered it up with make-up ….. cause she never covered it up before, so where is it at now hmmmmm . I’ll tell you where it’s at, it’s in the trash can with all the other left over skin .

There is NOTHING wrong with getting a Tummy Tuck whatsoever but please DON’T lie about it . Her lying about it makes her look like a disingenuous FAKE person and at the same time insults everyone elses intelligence because … she actually expects people to be stupid enough to believe her . It also makes me wonder what else she has blatantly lied about ( Emineme anyone ) .

If this proves anything it proves Mariah cares more about her looks than she does taking care of “Dem babies” I mean it’s not even like she had been raising them for a period of time and just needed a break from it all she hadn’t even been raising them long enough to be sooo tired that she just had to have a break and retreat to a Spa . Wait till they hit the terrible 2 phase then she can talk about needing a damn break at a Spa .

Instead of giving Jenny props for her figure she needs to be giving her Plastic Surgeon some props cause it looks like he worked a miracle on her ass . If I had a Tummy Tuck after twins I wouldn’t lie about it I would be telling everyone where I got it done and who did it.

And if I wanted to be able to lie about it … I’d make sure to tell the doc to not place my belly button too high and I’d also ask the Doc if there was a way he could NOT make my belly button look so damn round and flat because that is one of the tale-tale signs that someone has had one done .

To all the Mariah fans out there that don’t believe she’s had anything done I challenge you to go look at Tummy tuck pictures of women and men that have had tummy tucks and look at their belly buttons then look at Mariah’s belly button and tell me her Belly button doesn’t look just like their does . Like I said, I like Mariah too but just because I’m a fan doesn’t mean I’m so into her my brains have fallen out .

Celebrities are fraud. There image can turn into reality. They prone into fake life that they used to be. Also on their image that we can saw and heard. It must be in reality that we can conquer things without imagination.

I have been working out for one year, doing cardio and toning classes five days a week and my post baby body is nowhere near hers. I say be up front with what you do, there is no shame in honesty. If celebrities had a pinch of honesty then real women wouldn’t have body issues.

Chloe,

Please do not take my message in a rude manner because I hate cruelty on the internet. I am a huge Mariah fan, but I also believe she had a tummy tuck. However, I entirely disagree with your article about Mariah as a liar – and here’s why:

The cover says “I got my body back” – which is true, she did. Then says her “easy day-to-day plan that you can do too” – also true. Inside Mariah claims “I lost 30 lbs on Jenny Craig” – again true. But the article NEVER says “I got a flat tummy from Jenny Craig” nor “I did not have a tummy tuck”, because those would be actual lies. Even if Mariah said “I got my new body back with the help of Jenny Craig” would also be true, because a tummy tuck doesn’t take off 30lbs like a Jenny Craig program can. Mariah ONLY claims she lost 30 lbs on Jenny Craig with an easy day-to-day plan. Also, Mariah is probably under contract with JC to not reveal she had a tummy tuck because the public would discredit JC’s program altogether, even if it does work.

You and the others on this blog are reading exactly what Jenny Craig and US Weekly wants you to THINK you’re reading – that she looks this good from Jenny Craig. Marketing wants readers to assume things when they read articles. Here they want readers to assume Mariah has a flat tummy again from Jenny Craig – but never actually says that.

Hey Keniah,

I understand what you are saying. I wrote this post in response to a People Magazine that one of my post-partum patients had. She had just had a baby, and there on the cover was Mariah Carey with her obviously either photoshopped or surgically altered belly and my patient with this impossible standard to live up to.

In that People Magazine article Mariah credited Jenny Craig for giving her her flat belly back and helping her lose the 70lbs she’d gained in her pregnancy, not 30 lbs. Later on Mariah may have said other things, but my article was specifically directly to that People Magazine article.

While I appreciate very much that you wanted to defend Mariah from what you see as my unfair attack, and I really mean that, I am much more concerned with my patients and the women in this country being told a load of lies that make them feel badly about themselves, and/or purchase products that do not do what the celebrity claims it will do.

Mariah is just another one of these sorts of celebrities who creates an unattainable (and possibly unhealthy) standard that other women then feel like they have to live up to, or live with failure because they can’t. That bothers me a heck of a lot more than Mariah Carey’s feelings. I hope you understand.

Oh…just wait until she’s 70, like me. I had three kids — 8-1/2 pounds, 9-1/4 pounds, and 10-1/2 pounds. Gained 20 with the first, LOST weight with the second, gained about 30 with the third. At no time was my non-preggers weight over 150 pounds (I’m 5’10”) I have a tummy fold, droopy boobs, turkey neck, and a bazillion crow’s feet, and I don’t give a damn. Plastic surgery can NOT fight gravity, I don’t care what anyone says. I’m healthy as a horse, active, happy, enjoying however many years I have left. And devil take the hindmost!

I carried both my babies way out front – so much that at four months people started asking when I was due. I know what my stomach looks like now and there is no way she could carry twins and not have some stretching.

I worry for female celebrities these days – it seems that they are afraid to show wrinkles, grey hair, post baby tummies, a little fat jiggle, – in other words any sign of aging beyond 25. That is not healthy for them or any one else.

Life leaves marks and whilst I am not ecstatic about my tummy fold, I’d rather have that and two children than a perfect flat belly.

Jamie December 5, 2011 at 7:16 pm

Well said, Chloe. And that belly button is a dead give away. For a woman who has had multiples, a tummy tuck might be the only way to have a “normal” stomach, but I’m not a fan of the tummy tuck aesthetic…If I had to choose between my somewhat gooshy tummy with a few faded stretch marks and having that oddly tight stomach with a bizarre looking belly button, I choose the goosh!

Reply

Chloe December 5, 2011 at 8:19 pm

Yeah, the belly button tells all.

I don’t blame her one minute if she had a tummy tuck. I wanted to have one myself. All my stretch marks are around my belly button.

I went to the plastic surgeon for a consult. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough skin to do a proper tummy tuck. I’d end up with an inverted T incision from hip bone to hip bone and up to the belly button.

Well, there’s no way that would look better than what I’ve got going on. The only purpose of having a tummy tuck would be to look good naked or in a bikini. If they can’t give me that then there isn’t any point.

I’ll just have to live with the goosh.

Pregnancy can surely change a belly button, but I’ve never seen a pregnancy make a belly button look like it’s had plastic surgery.

Leanne December 5, 2011 at 5:40 pm

Well, I don’t know about twins, but my tummy was back to normal around 8-10 weeks after having my kiddies (my hips and thighs however… well that’s another story)

I gained 20kg with each of them and had lost it all withing the first 3 months – not sure how many pounds that is though? But I was in my early 20’s, and did not have twins.

I do see what you mean about the belly button though!

Chloe December 5, 2011 at 6:04 pm

I have seen women look like they were never pregnant at all right after delivery. It does happen. I just do not believe that this is what happened for Mariah Carey. And it isn’t her fault. 11lbs of baby is a lot of baby. And the pressures on women to have children but never show any signs that they’ve had children are immense.

My sister had 9+lb babies and didn’t get stretchmarks. It can and does happen.

Yup nice when celebrities try to be make it sound like it was no big deal to get back in shape, they did not have to DO anything special and are just like the rest of us mommas. Way to go since it can go a long way to making women feel like crap about themselves when they hold onto the weight even with working out and a good diet or are simply normal and their body takes time to readjust. Pffftt. I wish she would say it was hard as hell, she worked, worked, worked and had loads of paid support.

Chloe December 5, 2011 at 5:31 pm

It really ticks me off.

A real new mom of twins doesn’t have time to go to a gym three days a week.

I resent that she’s selling a product and making promises that can’t be true.

I agree – false advertising – just be honest about how you got there whether by very hard daily work, cosmetic surgery or both. I think women would appreciate the truth of it.

Reply

Chloe December 5, 2011 at 6:58 pm

That’s it. If it takes cosmetic surgery then admit it. Or don’t say anything. But don’t go on a magazine cover and tell me lies. And especially don’t go telling me lies about some expensive diet plan.

It makes me so angry the way celebrities treat child birth. Having unnecessary c-sections and even inducing as early as 32-36 weeks so that they won’t have stretchmarks and scars. If they’re so concerned about their bodies maybe they should adopt? It makes me doubly mad though, that we’re being fed this drivel of how she got her body back.

I gained a whopping 32 pounds with my daughter and by my 6 week check up had lost 37 pounds. I work out five days a week, and even after four years my stomach doesn’t look anything like what she’s claiming hers looks like.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who called bullshit on that article. 🙂

My mom was an L&D nurse in Santa Barbara and can attest that several celebrities had non-medically necessary c-sections and were sewn up by plastic surgeons who were standing by. 😡

Thank you, Lorri! I have worked with one physician who was giving his patients tummy-tucks after their C-sections. I don’t think he was doing that good of a job of it, but he was doing it.

I was SHOCKED after my first baby and only gaining less than 30 pounds that my body didn’t bounce back to pre-baby and I looked 5 months pregnant. Now 13 years after my 5 child, no matter how many sit-ups I do and how many hours I spend climbing at a 30 percent incline on the treadmill…my belly likes to hang down like a flabby piece of meat

I’ve seen some miraculous bellies without a mark on them. Usually in tall women with small babies.

Mariah Carey had nearly 11lbs of baby in her belly. I’ve never once seen a woman with an 11lb baby not have a stretch mark or a sag. Not once.

Is tummy #2 even really hers? It wouldn’t be the first time someone got a ‘tummy tuck’ via the wonders of airbrushing and/or Photoshop.

Reply

Chloe December 5, 2011 at 1:27 pm

That’s a really good point. It doesn’t look real at all, does it? Who knows?

As I said, if this wasn’t a commercial for some diet plan, masquerading as a magazine article, I wouldn’t hardly even care. But since she is crediting this body to a diet plan, then I think it needs to be called out.

Echoing what Texanna said. My body is still showing the wear and tear (20 years later) of having gained 53 lbs during pregnancy. And I did lose it all in 12 months but things were NOT the same. 😉
