Did anyone else see the story on Entertainment Tonight? HERE is the story they ran. She did not appear that large to me. I wonder what her BMI was before surgery.

in performance industry where size 2-4-6 is consider "large", she probably was not comfortable in her skin. I think she showed some weight gain in the past, but 50 or 200, extra - probably to her - even 50 extra lbs would be considered a lot.

She probably paid cash for it. And now - she can have a chance to get to size 00, and don't feel likr she is constantly starving.

I goggled it - and someone "reported" her being as big as 263 lbs. taht even at her 5.5 gives her BMI higher than 40.

Interesting. She did not appear to be over 200 to me.

Maybe she's one of those women who wore their weight well? I heard this phrase said to me over the years but I just thought they were just trying to downplay how big I truly was.

It's gotta be hard with her in the spotlight & all.

In that video, the pictures look stretched out horizontally-to me anyway. I could very well be wrong of course.

Her weight ballooned by 100 lbs or so several times during her career. I'm surprised she did not have surgery sooner. It means she must have lost large amounts of weight in the past without wls and regained it.

I would guess she is 180 trying to be 100.

I hope she has a glamorous and fantastic recovery.

She'll rock the after.

I almost posted about this yesterday, but I read a different article.

It appears she did it because of body shamers when she went on tour with Lionel Richie. I personally don't think she will succeed as this write-up explains more. Like how she indulged in ****tails and dinners with her boyfriend. I don't feel she had eduction on WLS and that she did it just as an "easy way" to lose weight.

When she first started singing I thought she was great, but in the last several years she has become a mean, conceded ***** Fame went way above her head and she feels people need to bow to her.

That really, really surprises me. I guess I'm always surprised when people who don't seem that large has the surgery. But then again I was very large when I did have the surgery so I should have had it much sooner than I did...
