Star Jones Finally Fesses Up About Weight Loss
Star Jones is finally admitting what we’ve known all along: that gastric bypass surgery was behind her 160 lbs. weight loss. Shocking, I know!
“First, I didn’t know if the surgery would work. I had spent my entire adult life telling everyone that I was fine with the way I looked. I never thought I’d have to explain it. But the complete truth is, I was scared of what people might think of me.”
I don’t buy that she wouldn’t think she had to explain away losing the equivalent of another person when she was shrinking away on national television. And people already didn’t like her, so why worry about what they’d think? Maybe, just maybe, she would’ve gotten more people’s respect if she had just been upfront from the beginning.
She’s now coming forward because of the support of her husband, Gay Al Reynolds, and therapy, which has helped her be more accepting of her body. Oh, and because she’s promoting her new show on Court TV. Mostly that last part. And by mostly, I mean totally.
