Just days after being attacked for her bodacious bod by 'Holly's World' co-star and fellow Playmate Jayde Nicole, Holly Madison is firing back.

Last week, following reports that the producers of Peepshow, the Las Vegas burlesque in which Madison stars, told Madison to trim down, Nicole echoed their sentiments. Nicole told Life & Style of Madison's figure, "She needs to lose 10 pounds of fat," adding, "If she lost 10 pounds and toned up a little bit, she'd be back in the shape she used to be."

While Madison admits she gained weight after moving to Las Vegas, she says she's not about to risk her health to meet other peoples' standards. "Once I realized that other people were noticing that I'd packed on a few, I was embarrassed to go onstage," says the 32-year-old pinup. Despite her weight gain, Madison says starvation isn't in the cards for her.

"I like food too much to go on some crazy diet," she says. "French fries are my favorite downfall."

Madison, who says she's been adding more exercise to her routine in addition to eating a balanced diet, tells Life & Style, "I'd rather be overweight and curvy than super thin with no curves."
