My wife really watched the whole Carnie Wilson story a few years ago when she did her Gastric Bypass surgery to lose a ton of . She was 300 pounds and then she got her down to about 120 or so. She even posed naked in Playboy magazine.
But after having two kids and a bit of time out of the limelight her has come back up to 218 pounds. But even with the she is back on TV now with a TV show called Unstapled. Unstapled is a reality show where she really opens up her life as someone that is married with two kids, fighting food, excercising, trying to be famous again, and hosting a game show, “The Newlywed Game”.
I am a little uncomfortable watching the show as it is pretty raw. She swears, we get to see Carnie talking about sex and see conversations that are not reallt scripted with her BFF, a married gay friend of hers.
Today I watched an episode with my wife where Carnie Wilson and her family went to New York for a taping of the Dr Oz show. Dr Oz was very frank with Carnie Wilson telling her about all the health problems that she has and the fact that she is borderline diabetic again.
At the end of the episode she is being offered a 12 week diet and exercise program and a chance to come back to Dr Oz show to report back. Of course the pressure is really on and she is candid about the fact that if she fails it will be bad and that she needs to make changes even though she tries to already.
The fun thing to watch about Carnie Wilson is that she is really honest and you can see where she falls down and see the good and bad about her supportive husband. Just like the rest of us we sometimes say one thing and do something else instead. We catch ourselves sometimes and sometimes we just fall on our face.
Both Unstapled with Carnie Wilson and The Newlywed game are shown on the Game Show Network GSN.
