Rosie O'Donnell was probably the first to publicly speculate AND challenge her on live televisoin that she had undergone Gastric Bypass surgery to help her lose weight. Star denied it. She kept losing weight and losing weight and losing weight and she denied, denied, denied the surgery.
Then, a few weeks ago, with NO surprise to any of us that have battled weight our entire lives . . . low and behold . . . Star admits she DID have Gastric Bypass and that the reason she's been "quiet" about it (note that she doesn't admit to lying, repeatedly, about it just that she's not really talked about it) is because she was not sure how she would be treated.
Here is why I single her out - she's "famous" - she is a "celebrity" - to a number of people in this world who watched her on The View and how gleefully looked at pictures of her wedding and who are excited she is back on TV she is a "hero" or someone they "admire."
