Salma Hayek was on "Oprah" Monday talking about a tetanus vaccine program from UNICEF. But, as she gave birth to daughter Valentina last September, Oprah also asked her about getting back in shape. Salma, who had gestational diabetes during her pregnancy, got very animated when she talked about the difficulty she's had getting back in shape. She had believed the people who said that the weight would fall off as she was breastfeeding. "It's a lie! It's not true! I'm going to say something. Except for a couple of exceptions, the only reason people lose weight like that when they're breastfeeding. It's that they're not eating and they're breastfeeding. And that's not good for the baby."
