My most popular post by far would have to be So What If Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Is Still Fat?
It has had the most related search terms leading to it and has also consistently sat on the Trending Now section of my sidebar. Apparently her struggle with post-pregnancy weight loss resonated with many women out there, so I thought I should follow up.
I had a difficult time hearing all the negative comments about Aishwarya, of critics asking When she would lose the baby weight? and Why hadn’t she lost it already? She was the world’s perfect porcelain doll and no one seemed to want to see this very human side of her.
In my post, I commented her courage and attitude in the face of all this, especially in an age when celeb moms are expected to lose the weight overnight; indeed, many of them do go to extreme measures to bounce back to perfect—spending hours in the gym, scheduling visits to the plastic surgeon, and bragging about how the weight Just Came Off—instead of spending that time bonding with their baby.
Here are some photos of Aishwarya now. She has both stunned and silenced her critics, wouldn’t you say?
