Comedian Lisa Lampanelli lost 80 pounds after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery. The 51-year-old 'Queen of Mean' revealed her massive weight loss on an October 3 episode of 'Dr. Oz' and told the doctor that she tried everything before turning to surgery.
'I got sick of trying everything. 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... 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.'
