Tammy Rivera Changed Her Mind About Editing Out Her Stretch Marks And Cellulite On Social Media
Tammy Rivera is known for many things. She likes to sing, she has a popular swimsuit line, a great relationship with her daughter, she was previously on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, and she’s the wife of rapper Waka Flocka. But she’s also known for her curves. The 31-year-old is quite curvaceous and has no problem showing off what she’s working with on social media.
But she, like many other people, has edited some of her photos to make things appear smoother, to cover up what she might consider flaws. And she was tempted to do just that again when she shared an image of herself in one of her TRivera one-piece swimsuits, but she had a change of heart for good reason.
“I was about to edit all the stretch marks and cellulite out my thighs in this pic but you know what F&ck it,” she wrote. “This summer getting whatever body I give it! Plus I want y’all to see my progress.”
This isn’t the first time Rivera has been open about the ups and downs of embracing her body. Earlier this year, Mrs. Malphurs had a breast reduction to downsize her 32G breasts. Doing so helped her rid herself of back pain.
“I finally got this weight off my chest, literally,” she said. “I just went and got my breast reduction…You know, as we get older we gain weight. I happen to gain mine on my lower half and in my breasts, but unfortunately, it was causing me back problems and it just wasn’t a good situation. So I’m happy now because I feel free.”
