Singer Carnie Wilson Claims Howard Stern Fat-Shamed Her

Carnie Wilson was recently interviewed on The Talk. She spoke about her prior appearance on The Howard Stern Show in 1999, just nine weeks after she’d undergone gastric bypass surgery and recently getting engaged to her now-husband Rob Bonfiglio. While backstage, Bababooey motioned to her to step to a certain spot and wait for Stern to come out. Unbeknownst to Wilson, the spot she was stepping on was actually a scale.

“When I walked in, the producer, Gary, said, ‘Step over here and wait for Howard.’ Well, I didn’t know this, but I was stepping on a scale. And I looked up and in red, big numbers, 233 lbs. showed up on this thing. And I went, ‘Wait a minute?’ and I looked down, and all I could think was, ‘Howard, ready to shame me?’ They purposely did it,” Wilson said.

She says when she and her husband appeared on the show, Stern shamed her with comments like asking her husband why he would marry someone her size. “He loves to fat-shame,” Wilson said, “It’s a joke to him, but it wasn’t to me. It was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had.”

During her appearance on the show, Wilson kept her composure by reminding herself that she has the undying love and support of her husband, but admitted on The Talk that she was devastated afterwards.

Lisa Lampanelli Drops 80 Pounds (Weight Loss)

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli, who appeared in the last season of Celebrity Apprentice, says she has lost more than 80 pounds after having most of her stomach removed through gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year – and she’s still shedding weight.

“It drops off, dude,” Lampanelli told Howard Stern on his radio show Tuesday. “It’s so much fun. By the time I get my clothes dry cleaned, I’ve got to throw them away.”

After trying for 32 years to lose weight through dieting and other unsuccessful methods, Lampanelli told Stern she opted to have surgery in April to remove 85 percent of her stomach. She and her husband Jimmy both had the procedure, and he has lost 63 pounds since.
