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.
