“She’s commented to a few friends that she thinks Mo’Nique must have had something done because she’s looking so good so fast,” an anonymous source told The National Enquirer.
Star’s own battle with the bulge is well known. The former co-host of “The View” admitted that she underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2003. The procedure resulted in a 160-pound loss.
Mo’Nique insists she has lost 80 pounds the old-fashioned way. Those who follow the comedienne on Twitter would likely vouch for that.
“I tweet every morning about my workouts because I want women to see—especially us big women—that you don’t have to let them cut you and suck it out. You don’t have to let them staple you up. You don’t have to let them give you a pill. You don’t have to let them put a band around your organs,” Mo’ recently told the DJs at New York’s Hot 97.
According to the Enquirer, Mo has caught wind of Star’s suspicions and accused the attorney/author of being envious.
“Star is jealous because she took the easy way out to lose weight,” a friend anonymously told the publication. “She doesn’t care what anyone, especially Star Jones, thinks.”
Is there a stigma associated with choosing surgery to lose weight, as opposed to exercise? Should there be? Leave your comments below.
