Um… what?! Holly Madison, star of Holly's World, gave birth to daughter Rainbow Aurora two weeks ago. And while she is totally enamored with her daughter and with being a mom, she is not thrilled with the post-baby pounds!
Hollytells In Touch she is giving herself an incredibly brief SIX WEEKS to lose the 40lbs of pregnancy weight she gained. Uhhhhhh… that's me being speechless. I'm pretty sure that's a new insane, totally crazy record even for Hollywood standards!
Well in today’s astounding news, former Playmate Holly Madison is following in the footsteps of other body conscious stars and insuring her implants breasts for $1 million! Hey, J Lo insured her butt…
Talking to People, Holly reveals she took out a policy with Lloyd’s of London insurance company, because “I thought I’d cover my assets.”
The Holly’s Word star is savvy in recognizing that her boobs are integral to her success and she isn’t willing to jeopardize her future over an injury in that department! “I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she explained.
Holly, who is currently performing in Peepshow in Las Vegas, is topless in certain scenes and deems the insurance a necessary professional precaution, but she’s not above laughing about it! “I think it’s kind of funny. I think they’re getting the credit they deserve,” she jokes. “They’re my primary money makers right now.”
Well, Holly – best of luck to you and your bubbies – may they have a long, firm life and bring you much prosperity!

Is Holly being business savvy or ridiculous to insure her boobs? Would you insure a body part if you had one hot enough to pay the bills?
E! reality star Holly Madison is now firing back at her body critics while also gracing the latest cover of Life & Style magazine!
“I’m proud of my body,” declares the former Playboy Playmate, who was told to lose some weight a few months ago for her Las Vegas burlesque Peepshow. Holly has also received criticism from costar and fellow Playmate Jayde Nicole. “She needs to lose 10 pounds of fat,” Jayde told Life & Style last month. “If she lost 10 pounds and toned up a little bit, she’d be back in the shape she used to be.”
While Holly, star of Holly’s World, admits she has gained weight since moving to Las Vegas, she makes it clear she is not about to risk her health to meet other peoples’ standards.
“Once I realized that other people were noticing that I’d packed on a few, I was embarrassed to go onstage,” says the 32-year-old.
“I like food too much to go on some crazy diet,” she says. “French fries are my favorite downfall.”
“I’d rather be overweight and curvy than super thin with no curves,” adds Holly. “I’m proud of my body.”
And despite having a figure most women would envy, Holly admits that her small frame doesn’t exempt her from what haunts millions of women: cellulite. “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.”
Holly adds that while she now exercises by doing Pilates classes and 20-minute runs, she does not want to lose her curves. “I’ve always had a butt, and I want to keep it — cellulite and all. I’m not perfect, but I love my curves.”
A bigger sized image of Holly’s unretouched photo is below. The new issue of Life & Style offers more exclusive unretouched photos and the full interview with Holly.

In a new interview with HDNet’s Naughty But Nice, the 31-year-old Holly World’s star reveals she will not be attending Hugh’s wedding, that is if she’s even invited.
“I feel like the attention should be on them,” said Holly pictured above on Feb. 6. “It shouldn’t be about ex-girlfriends showing up and what are their reactions and stuff like that. I think it should be about them.”
Holly also let it slip that a wedding between Hugh and Crystal might be happening much sooner that we imagined, as in this summer. Holly reveals that if she doesn’t go, “It’s probably because I have a show in Vegas.”
And when it comes to her early January meeting with the two, which was a taped segment for her hit E! show, Holly admits the encounter was “definitely awkward.”
“I don’t really know her,” adds Holly. “I’m just really protective and want to make sure he’s making the right choices.”

Holly Madison is insisting she is not jealous of ex-beau Hugh Hefner’s engagement despite her recent comments to the media, you know, the ones which include statements like Hugh “could do better than Crystal.”
In a new interview with UsWeekly magazine, the 31-year-old Holly’s World star claims she just wants what’s best for Hugh. “I think everyone expected me to feel one way, they expected me to be really jealous,” said Holly of Hugh’s engagement to Crystal Harris, 24. “But it’s not how I feel. We’ve been apart for two years. I just want him to be happy.”
Holly adds, “I’m more protective than anything else. I just wanted to make sure he’s making the right choice.” It also helps that Holly is currently happy with her new beau of five months, All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat. “He’s totally cool — really down-to-earth,” she said of Jack.

TELL US – IS HOLLY A JELLY BEAN? HER BODY: PERFECT? OR NEEDS TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT?
While the second season ofHolly Madison’s E! reality show doesn’t premiere until Jan. 23, one thing we will be seeing this season will be the former Playmate being asked to lose weight.
Yes, Holly was told she needed to lose a few pounds by the producers of her Las Vegas burlesque Peepshow. In a preview clip obtained by RadarOnline, “I think you definitely need to tone up,” is what Nick Kenkel told Holly, who is required to perform partially nude during the nighttime show. “I don’t know if it’s the weight, but your body right now has to be sort of athletic,” he added.
The 32-year-old Holly World’s star tells RadarOnline she was shocked by the news. “I always thought I looked fine. It was a shock to me when they told me to lose weight. I just feel like I market myself as a sex symbol, I don’t market myself as a fitness model or a professional dancer so I feel like the way I look is fine!” said Holly.
So is she going to lose the weight? “I’m still up in the air over what to do. I feel like I changed my eating habits to really healthy. I’ve lost a few pounds. I’m still getting there and deciding if I even want to lose weight.”
In other Holly news, she told FoxNews over the weekend that she is open to posing nude in Playboy again. “I wouldn’t mind doing Playboy again,” said Holly. “But only if I had creative control.”
Holly also reveals what we can expect from the 2nd season of her reality show. “This season is really dramatic and holds a lot of character development for everyone on the show,” she hinted. “Troublemakers come to town, so there’s a lot of conflict.”
Season two of “Holly’s World” premieres Jan. 23 at 10:30 p.m. on E! Bikini Photos of Holly taken during the 4th of July below -

The 31-year-old Holly’s World star is refreshingly surprisingly honest about her feelings on the engagement between Hugh, 84, and Crystal Harris, 24, making it clear she wasn’t exactly thrilled to hear the news.
“I’m very surprised,” Holly told E!. “I have a lot of different feelings on it. I don’t just feel one way. I kind of didn’t want to put a generic statement out there like ‘Congratulations!’ because I felt everyone would see through that.”
If you recall, Holly ended her 7 year romance with Hugh back in October 2008 after he refused to commit to marrying her or having children with her. The E! article states Hef found out he was unable to have more kids because of a low sperm count though Hef has never publicly stated or admitted this.
We will also get to see more of Holly’s feelings about Hugh and Crystal’s engagement as she recently paid them a visit at the Playboy mansion while the cameras rolled of course, capturing it all for her E! reality show.
“I’d describe it as awkward,” she told UsWeekly Wednesday about the face to face meeting. “I just wanted to get my feelings out about the engagement and I wanted to talk to him first. It’s definitely awkward to feel like you’re confronting someone I’m glad I did it. I wanted to be fair and tell him first.”
The new season of Holly’s World premieres on E! Jan. 23. And finally, just for kicks – below are some before plastic surgery photos of both Crystal and Holly.

After spending some odd number of years dating 84-year-old Hugh Hefner, it seems Holly Madison now wants some normalcy in her life.
The E! reality star, currently starring on Holly’s World, and former Playboy Playmate is now all about moving forward with her new life in Las Vegas. Holly, 30, voices her wish for a future that’s more normal than what she had while living in the Playboy mansion as one of Hugh’s girlfriends.
“I want more of a traditional family,” said Holly, who also revealed she bought a home in Las Vegas. And does Holly already have a man in mind for her traditional family?
According to RadarOnline, that answer is yes! As Holly was spotted out on a date with UFC fighter Josh Koscheck. “It was just the two of them and they were really cute together,” an eyewitness tells Radar.
“They were nestled alone at their table, they were cozying up together.” And it seems this isn’t the first time the two have crossed paths. Josh, 32, is said to have been in attendance for a viewing party for Holly’s reality show last Sunday.
Holly’s World airs Sundays on E! The show is surprisingly better that one would imagine, all thanks to Holly’s interesting friends/co-stars.
