Ack! The UK Daily Mail has this "before and after" comparison of Nicole Richie a mere two weeks after giving birth:
Goddammit, Nicole. I know I shouldn't be surprised--of course you didn't gain that much weight to begin with and anything you did manage to put on was most likely sucked out or snipped off during a Mend It Like Beckham procedure, followed by extreme starvation--but this is still such a terrible thing to do do the ladies, lady. How much angst and self-loathing did you just generate among impressionable post-partem women who now face even more pressure to lose the baby weight faster than Jake LaMotta before a championship boxing match? I hate you, Richie, I really do. Almost as much as I hate this insane everyone-should-be-pregnant-or-you're-a-failure-as-a-woman/everyone-has-to-be-perfect-within 24-hours-of-giving-birth culture we live in. Bleh!
