Brick House Bangers! 9 Curvy Celebrity Girl Crushes
Being a curvy woman myself, I must admit that I love seeing healthy thick chicks doing their thing! As much as men like to swoon over women with a little extra to hold on to, most women appreciate ladies who can still be hot and desirable without being stick thin. We come in all shapes and sizes of sensuality, and when it comes to brick house bangers, here are 9 of my curvy girl crushes.
She is arguably one of the most memorable contestants from America’s Next Top Model (3rd Cycle) where she charmed the judges and wowed us with her beautiful face and full figured body. Atypical of most waifs that walk the runway, she killed every photo shoot; although she didn’t win ANTM, she landed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models as a plus-size model. Since then, she’s graced the covers of countless magazines, hosted television shows, appeared on reality TV and has even come out with her own fitness DVD: Toccara’s Fabulous Work-Out for Real Size Women. She’s doing it for women who know how to work their body and be bold about it!
2. Sara Ramirez
As the hot, lesbian doctor on Grey’s Anatomy, you can’t help but notice Sara Ramirez’s cool swag as Dr. Callie Torres. She just comes off as a confident Latina comfortable in her own skin, even though – as she puts it – she’s “a size 12 in a size 0 town.” She says it took a while to come to terms with her body, but after she won a Tony in 2005, she realized that true talent has nothing to do with how you look or how much you weigh. She even did a scene on Grey’s where she danced half-naked in her underwear, and worked it! Thickness and all!
3. Serena Williams
Now, I’m not saying I would want a body like this – and I don’t think I could do it if I wanted to unless I was on some sort of steroids – but you have to say “hot damn!” when you see Serena Williams’ body. This woman is DIESEL! But she is also the picture of strength, commitment and exceptional talent. And while some may see her as “manly,” most men and women see a woman who is not only dominant in her field, but who can probably whoop your behind too. I wouldn’t test her, or else that Compton might come out full force – and we don’t wanna see no parts of that. But her girly smile and soft spoken ways make up for anything “manly” about her.
4. Jill Scott
Not only do I admire Jilly from Philly because she hails from my hometown, I love how sensual she is from lips to hips – and boy does she play it up! She owns her sexuality, her presence, her vibe and the stage – and her gorgeous smile and natural essence shine a light for us all to bask in. She is so blessed, yes yes!
Known as the other half of Ice Loves Coco, CoCo Austin is a model turned reality TV star who has been married to Ice T since 2001. Modeling mostly swimsuits in catalogs and calendars, that booty is nothing to play with – and while she says her breasts are fake, she claims her backside is all natural. I’m not trying to find out, but if Ice likes it, I love it.
6. Christina Hendricks
Even though she recently got a little vexed when an editor interviewed her and referred to her as “full-figured,” she can’t deny that women of all ethnicities admire her for celebrating her curves – especially when most white actresses in Hollywood would slit their wrists if they had her body type. But I guess the word is getting out that super skinny isn’t all its cracked up to be because now, women try to buy a body like this.
7. Sofia Vergara
This bombshell says she doesn’t worry about her weight, hates to work out and eats arepas topped with butter, cheese and salt. With that attitude, you’d think she was an overweight slob, but at nearly 40 years old, she’s working it better than any of the 20-something actresses she’s surrounded by in Tinsel Town. She admits that in order to stay in shape, she does Latin dance because she loves the music, not because she wants to be a super model. This head turner makes me wanna bust out a salsa real quick!
8. Salma Hayek
As a 40+ year old woman, her body is unbelievable – and this is AFTER having a baby. Always stunning, she never seems to age and her body just gets more bangin’ as she gets older. She bares it all in her latest film Americano, where she plays a stripper, and I can’t say that I blame her. I might strip down and flaunt my body too if I was killin’ ‘em like that. Her billionaire husband is one lucky dude.
Yes, yes, I know…we can’t seem to get away from Beyonce. Overexposed or not, I couldn’t leave her off my list of girl crushes when it comes to brick house bodies. I was getting a little worried when she got just a tad too skinny for Dreamgirls, where she endured the Lemonade Cleanse in order to lose weight. But even then she couldn’t hide those hips, and she looks even more fabulous since giving birth to Blue Ivy earlier this year. Even after dropping 60 pounds of pregnancy weight, her post-baby bod still reveals her soft, womanly signature curves. Go Bey!
