After a lot of drama, Star Jones Reynolds has finally confessed that she did have gastric bypass surgery to achieve that drop dead gorgeous body. Yes, it can be embarrassing to have breast implants (some people might think of you as vain) or get butt implants (Star Jones also got a breast lift), but gastric bypass surgery is not a cosmetic procedure per se since Medicare now covers it for most patients. This form of obesity surgery is now a medical necessity. The message here is that if you are thinking of having weight loss surgery but are embarrassed about it, don’t be. It could save your life.
