Who Was Star Kidding Anyway?

I've been watching the Barbara Walters interviews in the past week as she promotes her book or memoir. Of particular interest to me is the Star Jones incident on The View. While Star was on the view and it became apparent that she was losing weight drastically, she apparently asked her co-hosts to back up her claim that the weight loss was due to portion control and exercise. Now did she really think people were going to buy that? I think that from the beginning, people already suspected that she had gastric bypass surgery.

It seems that a lot of people, even young ones, have been opting for the surgery lately. We have a friend who just recently had the operation herself. I think that the less drastic lap band surgery may have been a better step for her, but hey, I'm not a doctor.

There is a website, Journeylite, that will help you decide whether lap band is a better option for you or not. They have a lap band physician on hand to provide counseling and help you decide whether this procedure is the right step for you. The website is also a valuable resource to start from if you're interested.
