This is a totally frivolous thread about gossip and celebrity speculation. I thought with all the heavy threads debating child murder and all of our rights being taken away as women — this might be a nice diversion. If you think this stuff is petty, it is...but this one is all about fun debate.



So, forever there have been rumours around about Beyonce (and other celebrities like Kelly Preston, Katie Holmes, etc) "faking" a pregnancy and using a surrogate so as not to gain a shit load of weight or get bad press about being rich folks who don't even have to carry their own babies.



There are some pretty strange pics out there with a wonky baby bump a couple months back:



http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainmen...



And there is one set of pics of her in a bikini where it looks like she is preggers, but of course everyone is saying those are far away/fake.



So now people are noting that she is losing weight super fast for someone who is famously curvy to begin with. That she is looking way to flat stomachish than say Jessica Simpson will be 10 weeks after her birth (Jessica and I have a very similar figure when thin, fat or preggers, so I know of what I speak).



So what do you think? Do you think some of these celebrities fake being more pregnant than they are or being pregnant at all to look like the weight loss was nothing? Do you think Beyonce faked her pregnancy and used a surrogate? Or do you think the truth is somewhere in between, like she had the child earlier and to protect her privacy/being taken to task for not losing the weight fast afterward and messed with the birth date to facilitate that?

What about this idea that they (celebrities) are giving birth a few month earlier, then announcing the birth after a few months so that they look like they lost the weight easily without ever having a tummy...or they wait the allotted time to have the "mommy makeover"/tummy tuck needed for after you give birth (I think it is a few months, they don't advise you to do it right away because it can be bad news with the growing/changing skin on a post preg belly)?



I think this actually makes a bit more sense and I guess if I was a huge celebrity I could see the merit in it.



However, I wouldn't mind just getting a surrogate, if I had the money, and just admitting I did it. I don't see the issue with just telling the truth about that.

I was 9stone over due down to 7 after the birth within a week.Swelling and all from the c-section.Some do lose it fast.I don't think she faked it.I did nothing to lose the weight or swelling lol.



She looks amazing however you can tell by the legs and arms she is not how she was before the preg..even her face and chest..waist looks fab though.

I don't see the shame in getting a surrogate to preserve their figure. Their figure is often their livelihood.

Also when I used to look at myself in the mirror at 28 weeks with my first, you couldn't tell I was pregnant face on. Side on was a different story

I think we the amount of exercise and healthy foods these stars eat of course they are going to lose weight faster than average joe like myself who doesn't.

I don't think she faked it. I mean the post baby picture yes her body looks flawless but if you look at her face it's clear the girl is sucked into every support garment ever made she has the "I look good but I can't f'ing breath" face. I watched the video of her sitting down like 3 times it's freaky for sure but I think it's more lighting than anything the first ripple happens as her hair falls in front of her the next as her upper chest shadows her belly so could really just be lighting. Plus she does sit down like she's got a melon between her legs which is how I looked when pregnant it's so graceful being pregnant lol

I don't know -- it's certainly possible that she faked it. I do think she is wearing a support garment in the second picture. What makes me think it's possible she faked it are her boobs. She is supposedly nursing and those certainly don't look like nursing boobs to me. Nursing boobs are huge.

"It's been ten weeks since she gave birth to little Blue Ivy, but a glowing Beyonce showed no signs of any post-baby weight in a form-fitting dress as she headed to the Greenwich Hotel in NYC for dinner with First Lady Michelle Obama on Monday.



It's almost like she never had a baby."



Thats how I looked after delivery with my daughter, like I had gained nothing. But baby bumps don't just disappear....she could have been using those form fitting spandex to make herself look better, less pregnant.

I agree Rebecca. No baby bump "folds" or "hangs" like that... hmmm.. lol



Oh to have the money, I could say and do anything. ;)

Weird pictures and if you look at the video, it is just very odd. Something just seems fishy there.



Totally could be Spanx, but those other pictures make you wonder.

well i used to wear a lot of control-top pantyhose and i know they make them for pregnant women, and i know that even with a flat stomach in high school the damn things would roll down if i didn't suck it in or bent over for a second. very annoying, just don't wear those things...even the damn Spanx rolled down on me. ugh...



also with my first pregnancy i did not have the typical baby bump. my tummy was lumpy and i carried Julie very low. i just looked like i had a big beer belly when i was pregnant with her, lol.



i'm not saying it's not possible she faked it, but i'd rather not think she did because IF she did she'd get a LOT of flack for it.

Spanx is magical!!



ummm, that 2nd link definitely looks weird! I have never seen a pregnant belly that looks like that... ewww

[deleted account]

oh shit just looked at the pic and looks like she's wearing a girdle underneath that dress. i would know, i wore one after having Julie too.



girdles are magical, i tell you.



ETA: the people in the comments have it right, it's Spanx, which is also very magical.

well they DID mess up the hospital pretty bad where they were at and caused a bunch of security problems and had people forced to stop what they were doing and all that...i could consider that faking pregnancy and using a surrogate was possible. damn conspiracies!!



but i'm more inclined to think she has hired a personal trainer like most celebrities have the money to do or has had lipo to suck out the baby fat...
