Rosie O’Donnell is showing off her new slimmer physique! The funny lady revealed that she underwent weight loss surgery after having a heart attack in 2012. During a speech at the the annual Go Red For Women Luncheon, sponsored by the American Heart Association, she said she lost a whopping 40 pounds and planned for another 40.
O’Donnell had a Vertical Gastric Sleeve, a procedure that removes part of the stomach, during the summer of 2013. She dropped from 220 pounds to 180 and wants to shed a few more lbs at the recommendation of her doctors. “I did what many woman do, and I did not take care of myself. And that’s why I’m here, to try to get women to know you’re worth it, take care of yourself and know the symptoms.”
