Ladies, I don’t know why you’re all worrying your pretty little heads about how you’re going to immediately drop that baby weight so you can dance like Beyonce just months after giving birth. Because, according to an absolutely ludicrous article by Radar Online, Giuliana Rancic has already cracked the code on keeping it fit and healthy: Use a surrogate, then work out a ton. Why hasn’t everyone else thought of that? Also, why haven’t we been more worried about moms-to-be who use surrogates getting fat? There’s a whole undiscovered trove of body-snarking and judgement just waiting to be looted.
The article, entitled “Giuliana Rancic’s Plans To Stay In Shape In Shape After The Baby,” explains how Rancic won’t actually have baby-weight to lose (Oh, is that how these things work? I was so confused! Now tell me: can I get fat and be on the receiving end of cruel comments by tabloids, just from being near pregnant women?), but that she’ll still be exercising a ton (with Zumba!), just in case she does get fat from all the baby-love and snuggle time.
Apparently, postpartum weight loss is such a hot topic these days that even a woman who is using a surrogate mom, and who is not only a breast cancer survivor, but someone who has been through hell and back to have a child, is the subject of whispers about the possibility that she won’t drop the non-existant weight fast enough, because clearly, all moms must get fat, right?
Does anyone else see what’s wrong with this line of conversation?
Apparently, the commenters agree. Here’s just one comment, which seems to sum up the general consensus:
And yes, I know that harping on an article on someone else’s website doesn’t make me any better, but seriously–when we’re writing and reading about a woman who’s becoming a mom and assuming that that means she’ll immediately “let herself go” if you doesn’t pop in a Zumba DVD at least three days a week, we’ve reached new levels of post-pregnancy harshness.
