Holly Madison, former Playboy bunny, gave birth to her daughter Rainbow Aurora just 6 weeks ago and is back posing in a bikini. She posed exclusively for Life & Style and Eonline has some details about how much she gained and lost:
Madison recently revealed she gained 40 pounds during her pregnancy (7 of which belonged to her little one!), and we’ve been watching the star rapidly slim down since welcoming daughter Rainbow Aurora with beau Pasquale Rotella on March 5.
[Madison] was “surprised” by how much weight she gained but says she now feels “good” in a bikini.
Despite her bangin’ bod, Holly says she has 10 pounds to go, but admits she’s in no rush to shed the last of her baby weight.
“Who cares if I still need to lose 10 pounds?” the former Girls Next Door star tells the mag. “I’ve been really healthy and done the best I could. I’m really proud of how I look right now!”
I guess now Ms. Madison can get back to…whatever it is she does. I don’t understand though how actresses look so amazing so quickly after giving birth. Photo shoots are gonna use photo shop, that’s a given, but then you see candids of them on the beach and you’re like, I’ve never had a kid and I am in worse shape than they are 2 weeks after having theirs. Like Jessica Alba and her magic girdle trained body. So unfair.

There are a lot of smug haters out there who bag on my choice of a name, but I don’t care about what they think. I want my daughter to be proud of who she is and learn to speak up and stand up for herself at a young age. I spent most of my life being a people-pleaser who worried about what other people thought or thought was cool and I don’t want that for her. I have always loved the name Rainbow. There was a girl in my school a few years younger than me named Rainbow and I was so envious of her name because it was so pretty and unusual. She was perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I’m not worried about my daughter being ‘traumatized’ by having an unusual name.
I didn’t think people really cared that much about what other people name their kids but reading through the comments on the US Weekly post proved me wrong. As far as celebrity baby names go, it isn’t the most extreme out there. It’s no Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee‘s kid). Or Audio Science (Shannyn Sossamon’s kid).
Ms. Madison got her nails done in rainbow colors to “celebrate my new daughter’s name!”

Holly Madison AKA Hollin Sue Cullen of The Girls Next Door and not much else, gave birth yesterday. The baby girl weighs 7 pounds, 2 ounces and is healthy. She and her boyfriend Pasquale Rotella (party promoter and CEO of “Insomniac Events”) are delighted.
From The Huffington Post,
“Pasquale and I welcomed our first child, a baby girl!” Madison tells In Touch. “We haven’t yet decided on a name for her but we couldn’t be any more overjoyed than at this moment.”
“I’ve never been more in love than I am today as, after months of waiting, I finally was able to hold my daughter for the first time,” Rotella, 38, adds. “Holly and I are looking forward to spending some quiet time with our baby and enjoying our new family. I’m truly the luckiest man in the world.”
And, following in January Jones’ footsteps, Ms. Madison plans to consume her own placenta.
I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!
Is there any actual scientific proof of this? Because I heard it doesn’t do anything. Anyone here nommed on their own placenta and want to let us know?

My name is Bobby and I will be your new celebrity gossip writer as of the beginning of February. I know that you are going to be ruthlessly critical, and I expect nothing less. Until recently, I, too, used to tear apart celebrities and authors alike in the comments, but consider yourselves warned! To get this job I had to bribe and coerce and blackmail people, and when that didn’t work, I sent Sarah a severed horse head, so no funny business.
Just kidding. I am, in fact, quite harmless. My specialties include photography, rock and roll music, and kittens*, and my goal for this year is to somehow manage to work the word idempotent in a sentence. It also happens that I am in a sort of a Jessica Simpson situation at the moment – not even nine months after I had my first baby, my husband went ahead and knocked me up again. This very much leads me to the theme of my very first post for Evil Beet – pregnant celebrities!
So without further ado, here’s a list of 12 celebs who will be procreating at various times this year (in no particular order):
There was no love lost between Evan and, well, almost everyone on Evil Beet so far, but I like the gal ever since I saw her in Thirteen. She is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell sometime in the Summer.
2. Kristen Bell
The sloth-loving Kristen Bell is preggers with her first child from Dax Shepard, and if crying uncontrollably at the sight of sloths isn’t a good enough reason to like her, Kristen is also outspoken on issues like same sex marriage and animal welfare. She’s due in the Spring.
3. Amber Rose
Model Amber Rose is expecting a very laid back (and possibly tattooed) child with Wiz Khalifa, and is ready to pop any minute, forever changing the the way her vagina photographs.
4. Jenna Dewan-Tatum
I don’t have any idea who she is, but they say her husband is hot so there you go.
Former Playboy bunny/stripper/reality star Madison, known mainly for her utter lack of style, is expecting a girl in March. For the delivery, she’s rumored to either wear a mustard yellow floral nylon dress, or nothing.
Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge had a rough first trimester but she seems fine now, unless you refer to the latest portrait of her, in which case she doesn’t. I really hope Kate puts on some weight during this pregnancy; it makes me feel uneasy watching her right now. She looks … sort of malnourished. Or maybe I’m just jealous because I know I’ll turn to a whale long before I reach full term. A Great Blue Whale.
7. Sophie Dahl
Dahl is pregnant with her second child, but I have a feeling that despite of being Roald Dahl’s granddaughter and a former plus-size model, many of you might not consider Sophie a celebrity. If that’s the case, let me remind you that she was on the cover of Vogue, like, 500 times, and that makes her at least more famous than you and I. Besides, you gotta love how much taller she is than her husband.
8. Busy Philipps
I LOVE Busy. She is so pretty and real, and she always steals the show even though she’s not necessarily in the A-list headlines all the time.
This here British celebrity who is famous for being famous is going to have another baby boy, and oh! god. She intends on naming him Phaedra. Let us all roll our eyes on a count of three.
10. Malin Akerman
11. Jessica Simpson
I suspect that Jessica actually learned the trick of getting pregnant so soon after giving birth from Britney, but then again Jessica’s fiance is quite cute and I don’t see why the hell not. Jess is going to have a boy.
12. Kim Kardashian
And finally, the worst, most terrible celebrity couple, Kimye. Typing this nauseates me, so I’m just going to give you a funny picture of Kim and leave it there. There’s nothing much to say about it anyways, except maybe to loosely quote Chelsea Handler who predicted that, considering its parents, this baby will be “tanned and very hairy.”
*I’m sure you’ll be missing Emily’s kittens so I promise to post photos of mine as often as I can.

And the thing is, guys, it’s not like the fashion’s getting better as she gets more pregnant, because hey. It’s getting worse. This dress up here? It’s way more awful than this dress, which is what she was eviscerated for wearing back in December:
No, this blue madness is a dream compared to the placenta-looking dress that she rocked to the grand opening of Andrea’s Restaurant at the Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort last night. Oh Holly Madison.
I wonder if she’s taking tips from Jessica Simpson on maternity wear these days, huh?
Holly’s getup—love it or leave it?

Here’s a photo of Holly Madison at the recent Animal Foundation Happy Anniversary Hour event held in Los Angeles. And this is what she wore. And to avoid mincing words, because why bother, I hate it. This is an awful, awful dress for a pregnant woman, and I don’t say that because I’m a person who thinks that pregnant women should not be wearing slinky, sultry dresses and should instead be at home in muumuus, eating bonbons (because I don’t). I’m saying that because this is one f-cking ugly dress and it isn’t the most flattering thing, either, pregnant or not.
In related Playboy news, did you hear that Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris are getting married again (allegedly)? Because hey, Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris are getting married again. From TMZ:
Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is engaged (again) to Crystal Harris (again) and the two will walk down the aisle at the Playboy Mansion on New Year’s Eve (oooh, that’s new!) … TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported, Harris bailed on wedding #1 in June 2011 … just five days before the big day.
But according to our sources, Harris and Hef are better than ever these days, since Harris moved back into the Playboy Mansion earlier this year. We’re told the couple have worked out all their previous problems and decided recently they want to try and get married again.
According to our sources, Harris feels the time she spent apart from Hef really taught her how to be independent and stand on her own two feet … something she felt she needed.
Our sources say the wedding will be an intimate gathering with just close friends and family.
Looks like Crystal Harris got sick of being a nobody all over again. Whoopsie!
