Jezebel has already tackled the idea that the bikini body, much like purity, is a myth. Women already get plenty of images and messages about how we have to measure up to some completely unrealistic beauty standard that Photoshop can correct by taking away limbs because who needs arms?

Breaking from the traditional "I Eat Anything I Want and Have a High Metabolism" or "I Lost the Baby Weight Breastfeeding and Shopping" garbage, Tori Spelling admitted she lied about how she lost the baby weight.

"I really don't exercise much, period. So I took off my weight the old-fashioned way. I like to call it the Just Keep Your F—king Mouth Shut and Eat Air diet. It's all the rage."

Good for her for finally admitting what most of us already suspected about celebrity weight loss.

Tori goes onto say that her publicist told her that she couldn't admit the truth so that's why Tori said she lost it all by swimming.

What's the truth?

After giving birth, Tori literally couldn't exercise because she'd risk ripping open stitches from her recent c-section. Hey, potentially bleeding from the abdomen IS her excuse! I wonder if that passes muster?

While she did mislead some people, Tori isn't all that different from other celebrities who spew the same nonsense because they feel defensive about their bodies after literally pushing a human out of their vagina. Regardless, that unattainable beauty standard is exactly what pushes people like Tori to literally starve themselves and then wax poetic about diet and exercise to the public.
