Star Jones Admits to Gastric Bypass, Everyone Shocked (that it took this long)

You're a star!

It’s official: Star Jones finally comes out (someone in that marriage has to). We now learn that her ambiguous reference to a “medical intervention” during her 160-pound weight loss translates to gastric! bypass! surgery! She admits to fearing public criticism if she came clean about how she lost the weight blah blah blah spin oh the dizziness…

Good for her for losing weight the easy way. That takes real courage. I personally prefer the Posh Spice diet.

I’m kidding, I’m kidding! While most experts would reasonably advocate exercise and caloric restriction over something as drastic as surgery, and I don’t think you have to be a genius to agree, I’m glad Star lost the weight. Frankly, I don’t see what the fuss is about and debating this is what Star’s flacks want. I highly doubt that she was hiding her “secret” out of fear of public backlash. She’s no spring chicken, that Star: clearly she waited until now to “reveal” the truth in order to maximize publicity. I’m cool with that, and I don’t feel any great sense of gaping betrayal because Star didn’t acknowledge what everyone knew she did anyway. Star is not responsible for the status of anyone’s waistline but her own. She’s under no obligation to be a role model. But then, I don’t believe in role models. Be your own role model.

But maybe the critics are just jealous of that stallion of hers.

    LMAO…good post can’t stand that women, and it has nothing to do with her weight — she’ll be just as obnoxious at 160 as she was at 320. . Although, the though of her first “encounter” with her hubby will be forever etched in my brain … :(

    LMAO…good post can’t stand that woman and it has nothing to do with her weight –she’ll be just as obnoxious at 160 as she was at 320 — and I don’t think diet and exercise ever crossed her mind as a solution…

    Oh and thanks, the thought of her first “encounter” with her hubby will now be forever etched in my brain … :(

    Good lord Claudine lighten up…. the post has nothing to do with being overweight… it’s about how the media feels the need to make a big deal about celebrities weight and diets… I mean who the F cares how fat or skinny she is …. she is still an obnoxious person … it doesn’t matter if she is a size 6 or size 20 … this is called tongue in cheek…

    Wow! She look very different from her old picture. I was also over weight. Until I read about this report on Gastric Bypass Surgery by Julianne Kennedy. It helped me a lot. You too should visit her site: http://www.weight-loss-surgery-secrets.com/controversial/free_wls_report.htm Maybe this will be the answer to you prayers.

    Star did what she had to do to look great and live longer. I dont see why that has to be anyone’s business anyway- its her perogative. And how others lose their weight is their business. Not everyone is 300 lbs and has success losing weight. She looks alot better now!
    I just hope her hubby’s not Gayyy! lol

    Gastric bypass does deliver excellent results in many cases. However you may not be one to take such a drastic measure lightly.
    There are also some people that this is just medically not possible.
