“The View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell recently underwent a major weight loss. In case you’ve missed the news, O’Donnell suffered a heart attack back in 2012 and has since lost a total of fifty pounds of excess weight. Still, she says that she’s not exactly “jumping for joy” about the news.
She revealed, “The fact that I look so different has been difficult and unexpected. Everyone assumes that obese people would just be jumping for joy that they were healthier and thinner and able to fit into store-bought sizes, we don’t have to go to the plus store. But it’s also filled with a lot of emotional turbulence you wouldn’t expect.”
She also said that her wife Michelle Rounds convinced her that it was time to get herself on track with regard to her health. She said, “When we decided to get married, she said, ‘But I want forty more years and I don’t want you to die on me, so you need to do something for your health. I have a group that I go to, where women talk about how they feel. A lot of marriages break up once one person gets healthy. Luckily, my wife is very healthy, always been healthy, loves me and encourages me to be healthy.”
Congratulations to Rosie O’Donnell on her weight loss.
