"I'm not her gynecologist, but I am her stylist," Robert Verdi explains about his client Eva Longoria Parker. "I see her naked. I see her boobs! That's the first place it would show, and it's not showing!" Of course, the celeb outfitter is talking about Eva's rumored baby bump, which has been perpetuated in recent weeks by her decision to wear loose-fitting maxi-dresses and big, belly-hiding handbags.
Verdi refers specifically to a gossip-inciting incident earlier this week, in which Eva was snapped at the Salvatore Ferragamo boutique in Manhattan with sales staff pointing at her belly. "Eva was holding a handbag that she bought in the crook of her arm," the stylist told friends at the viewing party for his TV Land show She's Got the Look. "The manager came over and said to her, 'I love that bag.' But in the photos, it looks like the woman is gesturing to her midsection. It's too funny."
In case of any lingering doubts, Verdi made his point crystal clear: "Eva is not pregnant." That may be true, Robert, but as her stylist shouldn't you be advising Eva to put away the baggy clothes for a while? Of course, this isn't the first time an expecting star has flat-out denied pregnancy rumors. Remember Jennifer Lopez? Christina Aguilera? Ashlee Simpson?
