In her Hot Topics segment (at 8:30), Wendy Williams discusses Ruben Studdard’s performance on The Biggest Loser then suggests he get Lapband surgery.
First, I think it’s completely out of place to be discussing his weight on her show in this manner.
Second, Wendy Williams got her MD when?
Third, the decision to have weight loss surgery is a personal decision that should be made with counsel of one’s own physician not a talk show host. There are also more options for weight loss surgery than Lapband. There are RNY gastric bypass, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, and duodenal switch.
Earlier in the segment she made comments about how Gov. Christie did not appear to have lost that much weight since his Lapband surgery. (3:45) “Can I just talk about this surgery he got for weight loss? What happened…like I don’t notice the difference.”
So Wendy, you talk about Gov. Christie for not losing enough weight with Lapband surgery, but you suggest Ruben should have the same surgery to help with his weight???????
I’m aware that Wendy Williams is know for dishing on celebrity’s’ looks and that she too has her own critics, however, the line here is crossed when she offered medical advice.
