Lisa Lampanelli Talks To Dr. Oz About Huge Weight Loss

Lisa Lampanelli is best known for hurling insults at people–mostly her friends–while onstage, either during her standup comedy routine or at various Comedy Central Roasts. But since her weight loss surgery five months ago, she’s dropped 80 pounds and is gaining some attention for her new look.

Lampanelli says she’s tried for years to stop overeating and drop the excess weight, but nothing worked for her. When she decided to go through with gastric bypass surgery, she knew she had to use it as a tool to lose the pounds and not as an answer.

“I tried every single thing imaginable – diet, exercise,” she told Dr. Oz. “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.”

The surgery removed 85% of her stomach, so now she’s learning about portion control and says she feels full after just a few bites. She now says she’s where she always wanted to be, size-wise.

      Anthony Jeselnick is Scott Baio’s man whore!

    • thomas w. corder

      If you drop the soap,Jeselnick, just remember I’ve got your back!

    • thomas w. corder

      This is a fact and it ain’t no jive,JESELNICK GOES DOWN IN IN FIVE!

  • thomas w. corder

    Lisa Lampanelli is the bastard child of Ernie Borgnine and Moms Mabley! Long live the queen!

  • Terri

    Lisa is the biggest phony. She is not a nice person.

  • Pat

    Lisa has no manners. We will make sure she fails on Broadway. Everyone on the Great White Way knows what a phony she is.

  • Max

    I have told every Broadway investor and all the powers that be, to help close her show as fast as we can. She deserves it for her rudeness.

  • Max

    Her rudeness has nothing to do with her “act”. She is just plain and simple, NOT NICE. Broadway poison.

  • Max

    everyone, help get Lampanelli’s Broadway show bomb quickly.

  • Nicole

    Playbill/Broadway.com, Broadway Box..etc. We are ready to close a show that’s not even there yet. That’s what happens when someone has no manners.

  • Sheri

    If anyone knows Lampanelli, get her to read this. Lisa gives “lip service” when she meets people. She acts like she’s interested and leads them on by saying certain things. Well Lisa, you’re a dumbass. You were rude to the wrong person. A person, who you probably thought was just “a nobody” , but really has plenty of power with the Broadway community that people listen. All you had to do was show manners and a little respect. Don’t spend time with people, and act like you will be getting in touch. There is a group forming to make sure your show TANKS. But you can redeem yourself and start being more respectable to people you interact with. Get a brain dumbass.

    • Taylor

      A wonderful friend of mine spent some time with her. She comes across as this genuine nice person, but in the end has no manners or common sense on how to treat people. I love how word is spreading her upcoming Broadway show is a tanker.


    • Doom

      Sheri, you sound like a Mafia Don here. Are you threatening Ms. Lampanelli? Sure sounds like it to me. What you and your group going to do to make sure she shows thanks?
      Are you the Grand Wizard of some kinda of Broadway KKK?
      You are the one lacking respect. Maybe someone will see my post here and read it to you.

      • matt

        Who is Lisa Lampanelli anyway? A fat chick who lost weight. Big deal.

  • Ben Gold

    Lisa thinks she knows it all. Zweibel her writer of the show has been bad mouthing her horrible behavior. She could lose all the weight, but she has no manners.

  • Dillon

    Hey Lampanelli, still waiting. When you disrespect people with your phoniness, they won’t allow such behavior to go unnoticed. We are telling the whole Broadway community that you don’t deserve a show, Love the negative publicity that is spreading.

  • Dillon

    The Lampanelli backlash will stop when she thinks about her actions and how she treats people.

  • Joel

    Her upcoming Broadway show has been cancelled. Hooray!!!

  • Vince

    Investors have pulled out of her show. Lisa has been cancelled. We are so thankful.

    • jay’s mom’s fling

      gay, i mean jay, is the biggest loser of all!

    • PJ

      Actually I am on TV and the Broadway community hates her.

  • DS

    It’s funny how the cry babies are whining about a comedian who pokes fun for laughs and makes millions is mean. The concept of humor is lost on some people. Mostly the ones with their head so far up their butt they can’t hear the joke anyway.

    • PJ

      Get to know her, she wouldn’t give you the time of day.

  • thomas w. corder

    Would you let DR OZ babysit your 8 yr old daughter?

  • MD

    Listen up,

    I’ve spent and evening with the phony bitch. Haven’t heard from her since. An evening of many false promises. Her Broadway show will tank.

  • Lauren

    Dr. Oz,
    I feel you glamorized weight loss surgery. I have had it done in 2002 with horrible results including a coma. I had a fistula which had to be fixed to save my life. Many complications and surgeries ensued. Three years after; I had a 6 vessel heart bypass surgery. The stress of the surgeries and countless antibiotics ( and a file at The CDC ) stressed my heart. I have lost the weight and remain within goal weight for my heart surgeon. But I can not afford all the plastic surgery needed to rid me of the end result. Please tell people this is an entire life change and not a quick fix. They need to really understand this.
    Thank you,

  • Peter

    I wouldn’t pay a penny to see her show. word is it’s already having financial problems. She’s not a nice woman. Plain and simple.

  • Carolyn

    Hate to say it, Sheri Shephard is right, Lampanelli is a huge phony.
