Star Jones Reynolds miraculously lost upwards of 160 pounds over three years. While media speculation went wild over whether or not she had gastric bypass surgery, Star claimed she only had a "medical intervention," but she never admitted to the surgery.
Now, in the September issue of Glamour, she's admitting that, yes, she actually did have gastric bypass surgery. She fully admits to being afraid of what others would think of her. On one hand it's her life, and I wish the media would've just left her alone in the first place. On the other hand, I almost feel it is socially irresponsible for her to keep it a secret because of all the women out there who may use her as a role model and weight loss. It's almost the same as looking at those photoshopped images in magazines, and not realizing they are photoshopped.
I am on the fence about this one. I am however thrilled for Star. She looks phenomenal, and I do hope that she can be a positive role model for those considering surgery -- Read her whole story online at Glamour.com.
