Last night, the premiere of Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On aired which documents the three former pop queen’s road to comeback-land. In the reality TVs first episode, Carnie Wilson, 43, revealed to her bandmates, Wendy Wilson, 42, and Chynna Phillips, 44, that she was going to have another weight control surgery. Wendy and Chynna were not amused. They were foremost concerned about how the surgery would affect their comeback and if they would have to cancel any shows.
Carnie, who reached her peak weight during the height of Wilson Phillips career, weighed in at nearly 300 lbs. Carnie has been very public about her weight challenges over the years and in 1999, underwent gastric bypass surgery which was televised. Over the years, Carnie has slowly gained back a sizable amount of weight, however, earlier this year, she underwent another surgery to control her weight called a ‘lap-band surgery’.
Last night, she told her musical gal pals, “This procedure is called a lap over bypass. It’s a smaller tummy, that’s still small, with a band over it, to make it smaller.”
So, how did her supportive cast react?
Chynna Phillips responded, “I’m really concerned this surgery is going to get in the way of our comeback.” She told Carnie, “You’re going to let a lot of people down.”
Sister Wendy Wilson said, “I can’t afford to cancel any shows.”
The pessimism didn’t stop her though. Carnie went ahead with the surgery without a hitch and has continued to work on her ‘comeback’ career.
All three women are celebrity moms. Wendy has four sons, Leo, 9, Beau 8, and twins Will and Jesse, 4. Chynna has three children with actor William Baldwin, a daughter Jameson, 12, son Vance, 10 and daughter Brook, 8. Carnie has two girls, Lola, 12, and Luciana, 2.
