Don't Insult My Intelligence

Star Jones announced today that she didn't lose all that weight by "diet and exercise" as she had previously claimed, she admitted to having gastric bypass surgery. Supposedly this was meant to be some big fat revelation, but anyone who has ever struggled with their weight knew it was a load of bull hockey all along.

Now, let me be crystal clear here. If you choose surgery for weight loss that's your business, everyone has different reasons for making the choices they do. But to stand up in front of the camera and claim that you've lost over 150 pounds in under a year with "diet and exercise" when you've actually had surgery is a big ol' slap in the face to people who really are trying the old fashioned way.

You could just hear them, couldn't you Star? Ooooing and ahhhhhing over your willpower and stamina, making them feel inadequate because they couldn't achieve what you had?


I just hope you were believing your own bullcrap all this time, because no one else was.
