If she said that, she is wise and admits it is easier to lose weight when one has someone preparing low cal meals and salads all day while they get their rest. When one has maids, one doesn't have to do chores, so they can sleep and get back on their feet and exercise.
That is what money buys people.

Will Jennifer Lopez lose the baby weight? What about Christina Aguilera? Coming to a newstand near you any month now. Sure, they are both talented and famous, and can both afford all the help they will need to get in pre-baby shape. Does it matter? I mean really. The original post in this thread was about why we praise celebs for having babies and then losing weight. If J Lo "loses the baby weight" does she get a cookie? Should we throw a party? Should we get down on our knees and praise the Lord? How are celebrities better people for giving birth and losing weight? If you can justify it in your own mind great, but it makes no sense to me. The culture's obsession with celebrities has cheapened the quality of our lives as Americans and contributed to a lower standard of what qualifies as achievement.

She really did say it was easier for her to do so because of all the help she had.

I think a lot of the celebrity moms probably think the attention they get about their pregnancy issues is a bit over the top as much as we do. However, it's not like they are on the cover of Time or Newsweek-they're on the cover of Celebrity Gossip Magazines-guilty pleasure sources of entertainment. If you don't want to know about it then don't buy the magazine and go pick up a Time or Newsweek that has "real" news in it. It's just another form of entertainment people! I don't know why people get so bent out of shape over it. There are plenty of magazines out there that feature moms who aren't celebrities, who don't lose all the baby weight, who cook their own families meals, etc., but if you're seriously looking for People, or InTouch to cover this stuff-that's not their line of interest so buy a different magazine. LOL.

And I always wonder what makes people think it's so much easier for a celebrity mom to leave her baby with a nanny to go back to work than it is for Jane Schmo to go back to her 9 to 5. They're still leaving their heart with somebody they don't know just like I did when I went back to work. That sucks whether you make $10/hr or $10 million a movie IMO.
