Wendy Williams is opening up about the postpartum surgery she had to lose weight after giving birth to her son Kevin Jr. The TV host, who said she weighed 297 pounds, talked about her journey and shared an old pregnancy photo during the Wednesday, February 26 episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

Wendy, 55, was talking about Malika Haqq’s recent admission that she’d already made an appointment for her post-pregnancy plastic surgery. The 36-year-old, who’s 8 months pregnant, was slammed by fans for her decision. One commenter called her “shallow” while another questioned her “vanity.”
