Former Jersey Shore star Snooki pulls no punches in her new book Baby Bumps about media coverage of celebrities who are pregnant and/or new parents.

  1. Yes, Snooki wrote a book and it's called that.
  2. She cites Kim Kardashian as an example.

Speaking about the coverage she received in 2012, she writes, "tabloid monitoring of how fast women lose the baby weight is practically a blood sport."

"Some women have been mocked cruelly for it," she adds.

“If you weren’t on the cover of In Touch Weekly in a bikini within two months of giving birth to talk about your salsa workout, you were a fat, lazy loser.”

An Australian personal trainer was fed up with misleading "Before and After" pictures used to sell programs and pills, so she set out to prove a point.

And prove it she did. Inspired by a similar project by personal trainer Andrew Dixon, Mel V. decided to make her own transformation in under 15 minutes.

Yes, minutes. Because with improved posture, tanning lotion, black bathing suit bottoms and a few clever photo tricks, that's all it took to look like this:

"Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes," Mel wrote on Instagram.

"Wanna know my secret?" She added, and went on to explain them in detail.

"Well firstly I ditched the phonewallet (fwallet) cause that *** is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they're a size bigger and black is slimming)."

Next, she "smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions, stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip, threw in a skinny arm."

Jennifer Lawrence is universally beloved, or so we thought. Apparently she managed to make at least one enemy this year, a Joan Rivers is bashing her.

Not for the first time, either.

She tells the New York Post, "My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down.”

Oooooh.

  • Joan Rivers in Fur
  • Jennifer Lawrence Profile

Rivers is still smarting over Lawrence's comments this fall that shows like E!'s Fashion Police encourage people to judge others and incite divisiveness.

Jennifer Lawrence, 23, said that such programming instills "all the wrong values" and makes it seem "that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat."

Rivers, 80, initially responded on Twitter that Jen is being "arrogant and a hypocrite" for loving Fashion Police during awards season but bashing it now.

Plus-size models and modeling have gained a lot of traction in 2013, as they a purpose beyond marketing plus-size clothing to a growing market.

They also provide women with a more diverse range of bodies to look up to, which potentially improves self-confidence, body image and social norms.

So if we have plus-size models ... should plus-size Barbies be next? That's the question posed recently by Plus-Size-Modeling (dot) com on Facebook ...

Plus-Size Barbie Pic

The illustration of a plus-size Barbie doll actually comes from a contest on Worth1000.com, a site where artists compete in daily creative competitions.

The image, created by artist bakalia, won a contest called "Feeding Time 9."

But when re-posted last week by Plus-Size-Modeling (dot) com, the depiction of Barbie with a double chin and a curvier physique sparked debate.

Over 35,000 people have "liked" it, but many criticize it, asking whether society should be praising being overweight any more than being too skinny.

Maria Kang has yet to weigh in ... but we know where she stands.

The best thing about Kanye West is that he does and says so many ridiculous things that any tabloid report about the rapper almost always seems feasible.

That doesn't mean that they're true, however. In fact, most of them are not.

The latest hilarious rumor? That Kim Kardashian allegedly has a "glam squad" paid top dollar by Kanye West for the 24/7 primping of his baby mama.

Not the case, according to Gossip Cop, which debunked this one very quickly.

Why would Kanye interfere with the perfection of Kim Kardashian, anyway?

While he clearly has his opinions about fashion and style, and loves his girl to look good, he's also on record saying it doesn't matter what she wears.

She's America's sweetheart. A total media darling for her fun-loving and quirky ways. She also happens to be stunning and remarkably beautiful.

Amber Portwood is looking good these days, and not just because she's no longer forced to wear an orange jumpsuit and can sleep without fear of being shanked.

The reformed Teen Mom is celebrating her freedom by creating a new look for herself, and it's a great one! Check out the difference in hair and makeup:

  • Amber Portwood Makeover
  • Amber Portwood Mug Shot (New)

After serving 17 months behind bars, Portwood was released from prison earlier in November, and quickly ditched her previous "mug shot" makeup.

Her post-prison makeover definitely gives her a softer look.

Amber Portwood recently reunited with daughter Leah and baby daddy Gary Shirley (not in the romantic sense) and is trying to get her life together.

So far, so good, and we can only hope she keeps this up.

She also got herself some new clothes (hopefully not at Aeropostale), and no longer uses homemade, prison-style hairspray. Really, it's all looking up.

To note just how big an improvement this is ... see below:

Jessica Hart is very high on her occupation.

And not very high on Taylor Swift.

Speaking to Women's Wear Daily following the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - which was held Wednesday in New York City - Jessica Hart had harsh words for the singer who performed at the event.

Asked if Swift could be a model for the famous lingerie company, Hart simply said "no" and then elaborated:

"I think she’s great. But, I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that.”

Kat Von D's signature lipstick line, Celebutard, has been yanked by Sephora after sparking major controversy with its name. Yes, it's really called that.

  • Celebutard
  • Von D in the Hee Zee

The mega-makeup retailer has pulled her lipstick shade after backlash from customers, particularly mothers of children with developmental issues.

The Celebutard lipstick, a creamy beige shade of Painted Love Lipstick by Kat Von D, started gaining buzz (not in a good way) on social media last week.

Groups such as Down Syndrome Uprising, Family Member, Inclusion BC and All About Developmental Disabilities voiced their dismay over the name.

The managing editor of Age of Autism lamented the fact that "'Retard' is still bandied about" and that such a name was even given the green light.

It seems safe to say that Robyn Lawley has transcended the plus-size world.

With each gig and interview, the Australian beauty is fostering a positive dialogue - with her words and her actual modeling - in the industry as a whole.

Robyn Lawley's inclusive message is pretty loud and clear in her latest photoshoot for Cosmopolitan Australia, where she poses in a variety of bikinis. 

Appearing in the December 2013 issue, the 24-year-old poses in patterned two-pieces, vintage-inspired one-piece styles and items from her own collection.

You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who'd say a size 0 model could have done a better job than Robyn, whose double-digit size has made headlines.
