Celebrity Apprentice's Lisa Lampanelli Drops 80 Pounds
Comedian Lisa Lampanelli, who appeared in the last season of Celebrity Apprentice, says she has lost more than 80 pounds after having most of her stomach removed through gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year — and she's still shedding weight.
"It drops off, dude," Lampanelli told Howard Stern on his radio show Tuesday. "It's so much fun. By the time I get my clothes dry cleaned, I've got to throw them away."

After trying for 32 years to lose weight through dieting and other unsuccessful methods, Lampanelli told Stern she opted to have surgery in April to remove 85 percent of her stomach. She and her husband Jimmy both had the procedure, and he has lost 63 pounds since.
Lampanelli said she's still exercising every day in order to keep her skin taut, and is losing an average of 3 pounds a week at present.
Though the comedian is thrilled with her weight loss, she said she's "still fat by Hollywood standards" (as a size 10), and it's clear that her new figure won't have an impact on her self-deprecating humor. "Don't worry, I still hate myself from the neck up," she told Stern. "That's a different operation."
