Dr. Drew On Call

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Lampanelli loses 60 lbs after weight-loss surgery

NEED TO KNOW
  • 'Queen of Mean' undergoes laparoscopic surgery
  • Her husband has same procedure
  • She says, 'I’m never going to be skinny, but I’m going to be at least at a healthier weight'

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli says she has lost 60 pounds after undergoing laparoscopic surgery in April.

But she told HLN’s Dr. Drew Monday night, “You could lose 100 pounds with this surgery and then gain it back, because you don’t work on the psychological/emotional issues of why you really eat, which is why I always ate. Any emotion was a good excuse.”

She added, “I’m very lucky because my husband, Jimmy, also got the surgery a few months after I did. So, luckily, our relationship is getting closer because we’re going through the same thing at the same time.”

Jimmy Cannizzaro has lost 42 pounds and says he does a 5K walk every day.

“I can’t imagine not doing the surgery after she had done it because it would be kind of strange for her to be trying to save her life and me stuffing my face with pie,” he explained.

At the end of the interview, Lampanelli was brutally honest, stating, “I’m never going to be skinny, but I’m going to be at least at a healthier weight. And I have always been funny all my life. So, let’s pray I don’t lose my funny gene.”
