Every now and then we come across a B-list celeb who’s just so much cooler than those A-listers. Never thought I’d say this, but Jenny McCarthy is one such woman. The 38-year-old actor/activist/former Playboy model recently Tweeted: “For anyone that doubted my 211 lbs at pregnancy here is a photo I found! Meaty meaty ass! Whoa!” along with the above photo.
‘Til now, McCarthy has never really been on my radar. I mean, I did Google her after learning about how she inspired one of our own writers to go gluten-free after appearing on Oprah and claiming to have “recovered” her child from autism through diet and supplements. But that’s really the entire extent of my one-sided relationship with McCarthy.
Though ever since viewing this photo – it was taken when McCarthy was pregnant with her son Evan in 2002 – I’m thinking it’s pretty awesome that someone in the media spotlight would share such an unflattering pic for the world to see. Health-conscious readers might be quick to point out that ballooning up to 211 lbs. isn’t exactly the wisest choice. Yeah, I thought of that, too. But you know what? The woman now weighs a healthy 120 lbs. and, well, it takes guts to post a Paparazzi-style shot of your enormous bump.
