In the week that Kim Kardashian reveals her dramatic post-baby weight loss, Tori Spelling has admitted she lied about how she lost 45lbs after giving birth to her son Finn in August 2012.
At the time, the mum-of-four said her weight loss was down to swimming and a healthy diet.
However, according to revelations in her new book Spelling It Like It Is, she lost the weight by eating very little – and her publicist told her to lie about her strict dieting regime because other women wouldn’t want to hear about it.
In the book, she explains: “My publicist had given me clear instructions about what to say about my weight loss, and that women didn’t want to know that I had lost the weight through dieting, not exercising…
“So I said that I swam. It was sort of a bad choice. I can’t do much more than a doggy paddle.”
Tori’s revelations come as Kim Kardashian reveals her recent 50lb post-baby weight loss in a see-through dress on the Jay Leno chat show.
“I got on the scale today,” says Kim, “and it said that I am 50lbs down. That made me so excited.”
Kim confirmed she’d used the Atkins Diet, and said the criticism she received for her weight gain while pregnant was “painful”.
