Carnie Wilson Opens Up About Her Gastric Bypass Surgery

April 3rd, 2012 11:37am EDT
Carnie Wilson
Carnie Wilson has opened up about the perils of weight-loss surgery, warning fans an operation is not a cure for obesity.

The Wilson Phillips singer had a gastric band fitted in January after gaining back the majority of the weight shed after a gastric bypass in 1999. She has since lost more than 30 pounds, but admits going under the knife wasn't an easy solution.

Wilson tells talk show Today, "The message isn't go out and get a surgery today. The most important thing I think we need to remember is that we're a work in progress. Do not be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. That's what ...

Heavyweight singer Carnie Wilson has gone under the knife in a desperate bid to lose weight for the second time in 12 years.

The Wilson Phillips star, who once weighed 300 pounds, underwent gastric bypass surgery in 1999 and shed half her body weight. But she piled on the pounds again while pregnant with daughters Lola and Luciana, now aged six and two, and took to TV in 2010 to combat her obesity problem as the star of reality show Carnie Wilson: Unstapled.

She failed to shift the extra weight, however, and now Wilson has opted for more weightloss treatment - she had lap-band surgery to ...

Carnie Wilson: 'I Don't Wanna Talk About Negative Weight Stories'

December 6th, 2010 2:33pm EST
Carnie Wilson
Singer Carnie Wilson is urging the media to stop focusing on her ongoing weight problems and turn its attention to publicizing her efforts to raise $1 million for an autism charity this Christmas.

The Wilson Phillips star was recently caught up in a diet program controversy amid allegations she cheated on the Fresh Diet eating plan she was promoting by snacking on her own range of cheesecakes. The fallout led to Wilson parting ways from the healthy food service last month.

However, the heavyweight singer is "sick" of the negative press and wants to shift the attention to a charitable ca...

CMT's 'Gone Country' Is Surprisingly Entertaining

February 11th, 2008 9:35am EST
Dee Snider
"Gone Country," a show in which mostly washed-up singers are resurrected as country stars, is the first show, to my knowledge, on CMT that I've watched in its entirety. I wouldn't call myself a country fan by any means, and at first glance this didn't seem like an appealing show at all. That was until I saw the lineup of goof balls that they had enlisted:

Dee Snider: He's the cross-dressing front man of Twisted Sister whose last major hit was over 20 years ago. I "met" him once in Chicago. He was going through a revolving door with me. I threw some metal horns at him with my hand...
