Holly Madison sans airbrushing

Most people should know by now the any time you pick up a magazine, the face or body on the cover has been airbrushed within and inch of its life. If you haven’t, wake up! Everyone has cellulite.

"I'm proud of my body" Says Holly

Holly Madison sans airbrushing

And when you're in the spotlight like former Girls Next Door star and Playboy bunny Holly Madison, you come under scrutiny for even the tiniest blemish.

Like gaining couple of pounds.

After being criticized for gaining weight, Holly's World star Holly Madison posed for an unretouched photo shoot with Life & Style to show of her curvy body.

"I'd rather be overweight and curvy than super thin with no curves," said Holly.

And come on, she's so not fat. Look at her! She's totally gorgeous! What makes her even cooler is that she owns up to her tiny flaws and isn't afraid to talk about it.

"I have cellulite -- and had it even when I was at my absolute thinnest," she tells Life & Style. "I'm never not going to have cellulite. People need to just accept that it's there and maybe dress accordingly or use body makeup to cope with it."

This whole hubbub started after the choreographer and director of her Vegas show told Holly to lose weight (she'd gained about 15 pounds) and her Holly's World mean girl rival, model Jayde Nicole sent Holly a basket full of candy when she knew her co-star was dieting.

Um, catty much?

To get back into shape, Holly does Pilates and gets her meals prepared meals from Fresh Diet.

Said the bubbly star: "I love my curves."

We do too!
