LOL, me either! Anyone can transform their body if you spend $75K to do it!! With that said, I'm happy for her. All that weight was killing her. She's saving her life! Now she needs to have her kids lose weight too!!

Its laughable that you (Klmrocks) think that she is being judged oh too harshly. Just as convextech says, she invited that pediphile who molested her daughter back into her home and into her life says all you need to know about her. And, yeah, she definitely falls into the "Casey Anthony" category of parenting style.

...especially for those with the resources to sink in excess of $75,000 into surgical procedures!

Totally within reach for most.

I am sorry. You guys are taking a lot of other stuff in to consideration. I am just talking about physical appearance. I honestly forgot about that other stuff as I only caught a few bits of the show over the years.

Don't know/care who she is, but with all that surgery, why still a double chin?

The minute someone shows me they're ugly from the inside, that's the only thing I see. Same for beauty on the inside.

My first time seeing her was some daytime talk show. I knew about the show but had never seen the show or any clips. She was talking about the "go go juice" she gave the kid before pagents. It was a mixture of Mtn. Dew and Red Bull. It gave her "energy" to do her shows. Aparently the first trial of giving the kid pixie stix didn't energize her quite enough.

Le sigh.

No, I definitely wouldn't use her as the poster child for mobidly obese people. What message is one sending? That the only solution to obesity, morbid or not, is surgical? It should also come with the disclaimer that unless the behavior changes, all of that is just temporary.

Glad she did it. Hope she didn't just do it for a man. You have to do things for yourself sometimes. Push yourself away from the table when full and don't eat a lot of crap. She could have saved herself a lot of time and trouble by not putting so much weight on. Glad it worked out for her. Hope she doesn't put it back on.

I hope for the best too. Do you think she is putting money away for her only remaining minor daughter, who may not be ruined yet, to be educated and rise up beyond their circumstances? Or is she even cabable of knowing the difference? I doubt it.
