Sarah Stage: My Kid Was Not On a Dirty Mall Carpet


Model Sarah Stage is lashing out at critics who have skewered her for letting her kid lay in what looks like a dirty department store dressing room while she took pics of herself.

The pic on the right is what Sarah posted on her Snapchat and published by, showing 8-month-old James on the ground. Sarah just sent us a screen grab on the left, showing James snuggly laying on what she says is a clean blanket. She says he was in the dressing room with her at a mall in Sherman Oaks, CA for about an hour.

You'll recall Sarah took heat for her now-famous pregnancy pic, where she looks like she may have had a piece of pizza but that's it. She's a fitness model who says her baby was never at risk, and his birth weight was 8 lbs 7 oz.
