An expectant Lisa Marie Presley struck some pretty pregnant poses for the September issue of Marie Claire.
Lisa Marie shared that she was motivated to pose for the glamorous shots after unflattering photos of her in the early stages of her pregnancy were posted and she was accused of having a large, unhealthy appetite.
“They want me to be him,” she told Marie Claire, referring to her father, Elvis Presley. “It’s like they can’t wait.”
Lisa Marie claimed “the tabloids were going so far as to alter photos. I could never figure out why they went to all that trouble to make me look fat.
“There are at least six other famous women pregnant right now who aren’t getting picked on,” she said in the interview. “But they’re all over me. It’s like there is a campaign to demean me.”
Shared Lisa Marie: “You know what I think when I see those fat photos? I am not going to let them control me. I just let it all hang out. You want to look at me? Go ahead and look.”
Lisa Marie, who is expected to give birth in the fall, has two children, Riley, 19, and Benjamin, 15, with ex husband Danny Keough. The twins will be the first children for Lisa Marie and husband Michael Lockwood.
Lisa Marie remains defiant when it comes to the fat-talk. “I am 5′ 3,” she said. “If I gain five pounds it shows.”
“I am trying to grow another human being,” she added. “Besides, I’m 40! I’m lucky to even be able to do this.”
“We’re all going to screw up,” Lisa Marie reflects in the September issue of Marie Claire. “The important thing is, do you learn from it and not do it again? Can you make it better in the future? Can you change?
“I am in a happy place now,” she said. “But it took a lot to get here. I wasn’t always who I am now.”
This poor woman! Weight is clearly a sensitive issue for her and then she was photoshopped fat while pregnant!? That’s no fun!
