Reynolds, 45, says she was “intentionally evasive” when people asked how she’d dropped 160 pounds in three years. She had gastric bypass surgery in August 2003.
She writes about her weight loss in a first-person essay in the September issue of Glamour magazine, on newsstands Aug. 7.
“I wrote an article because I really wanted to go as in-depth as possible about the way I’ve changed physically over the last 10 years on the air,” Reynolds, 45, said recently while promoting her new Court TV (soon to be truTV) talk show. “And I thought that that would be the most effective way to answer everybody’s questions.”
Her article, “Getting Over Myself,” will be featured in the September issue, on newsstands Aug. 7, a representative for Glamour said Monday.
You want the truth without spending money on a magazine? Gastric bypass surgery, the end.
- Court TV said Wednesday it had hired Reynolds to run a show about criminal justice issues that intersect with the pop culture world. The show, which has no title yet, will likely start early this fall.
- It’s a return to her roots for Reynolds, a lawyer who began her TV career as a legal commentator on Court TV in 1991. She was an original co-host with ABC’s “The View,” starting in 1997, where she became acquainted with the glitz and glamour of show biz.
- “This is the perfect time in our culture to see how the law, politics and entertainment come together,” Reynolds told The Associated Press. “Some people say it has been on a collision. I say it has been connected.”
