Red Carpet Confidential: Holly Madison Reveals The Secret To Her Pregnancy Glow
The reality star-turned-Las Vegas showgirl, 34, is expecting a girl in early March with her music festival producer boyfriend Pasquale Rotella.
What’s the secret behind her pregnancy glow?
“Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve lost my taste for fast food,” she tells me. “I used to be the biggest McDonald’s junkie and now I don’t like it anymore. I used to be the biggest fast-food connoisseur, and now I’ve really lost my taste for it.”
That’s not all.
“I think my secrets are being health-conscious and having fun with the whole change,” she says. “I’ve been much more health-conscious since I’ve been pregnant, because I’m worrying about the health of my baby, and not just my health. Before, I was lackadaisical about my own health. I was just like ‘whatever.’ My goal was to get through the day, and do all the jobs I had to do, and try and be Miss Overachiever. Do my five Starbucks runs — I was constantly running around with this huge Starbucks coffee, and eating whatever I wanted, as long as I was somewhat in shape, and not really thinking too much about my health.”
She adds, “But when you have a baby inside you, you’re like ‘whoa!’ Anything can happen here, I’ve got to give this baby all the nutrients it needs and really take care of myself, so this is definitely the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life.”
Fashion-wise, Holly is thrilled her pregnancy gives her the opportunity to try out new clothing styles.
“When I’m getting dressed up for an event, I’m not going to be super-skinny, so you might as well have fun with your look,” she says. “I’ve been looking at different shapes and different gowns, and just having fun with it.”
She adds, “It’s a relief to not have to worry about sucking in my stomach all the time on the red carpet. I’m looking for dresses that are opposite. Like before I would always look for something with a fitted waist, because when you’re large-breasted and you don’t have the fitted waist, you just look big all over. But now I’m looking for the opposite. I’m looking for the most room in the waist possible, and the highest empire waistlines. I use it as an excuse to have fun with a different look.”
Inside the event, Elijah Wood DJs to songs like Groove Is In The Heart while Stacy Keibler, who touches her stomach frequently, and Maria Menounos chat up casino owner Steve Wynn and his wife Andrea, after whom the nightclubby Asian-themed restaurant is named. (Talk about a sendup — the wall behind the bar features a mural of her eyes!) Ashley Greene, Kate Upton and Krysten Ritter share a table together with Stacy and Maria.
Guests enjoy sushi, steak (and potatoes) and dessert stations, featuring treats like miniature cotton candy sticks and sweet coconut rolls.
Post-event, Krysten and Ashley hit the afterparty at Surrender inside Encore Las Vegas, where Afrojack is spinning tunes. (It’s so popular the line wraps around the whole casino!)
