Comedian Lisa Lampanelli known as the "queen of mean" is showing off her new body.
The woman who was once known partly for her big size and big attitude, but now only the attitude remains.
Lampanelli , a frequent guest at Comedy Central's celebrity roasts and a contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice," is now talking about her 80-pound loss of weight.
According to Zap2It, Lampanelli acknowledged that she had an addiction to food and appeared on The Dr. Oz Show earlier this week. On the show she discussed her gastric sleeve surgery to shrink her stomach capacity:
"I tried every single thing imaginable - diet, exercise. I even bought a house on the health spa property and I still gained weight. For 32 years, from 18 to 50, I tried everything on the planet, and once I had a clean slate with that I said, 'You know what? Nothing's working for me. I'm going to treat this like the addiction that it is. I'm going to get this surgery and use it as a tool. That's all it is, a tool to help me get over it."
Lampanelli told Dr. Oz that she's definitely changed her eating habits saying, "I order food like a normal human being." She continued: "If I'm out to lunch I'm going to order three courses like everybody else. I'm not going to feel like some kind of freak. So I always order soup, dessert and a sandwich or whatever main course. But then the idea is you have to eat such a small portion of it and bring the rest home."
The comedian fired back at Dr. Oz when he commented that her meals now are like the equivalent to his snacks she told him he was a "skinny guy." Lamanelli remarked, "You're the people we hate."
