Carnie Wilson's Husband Bought Her Flowers after Howard Stern Fat-Shamed Her

Famously known as the daughter of Brian Wilson, Carnie Wilson, over the years, has made her own identity in the industry with the outstanding talent she possesses in music. Active since the early 90s, she has been in the industry for a long time.

She amassed a lot of love and appreciation during her prime, but she was also subjected to bullying due to her weight leading her to get on a weight loss journey that truly is sad and motivating at the same time.

Carnie Wilson's Weight loss 

Yes, 'sad' because Carnie had to lose her confidence due to her weight struggle and 'motivating' because she found the strength within herself to pull herself back and regain her confidence again. 

The 90s was the time when Carnie had to endure much regarding her weight. For example, in an interview with Howard Stern, she was "fat-shamed." 

It had been nine weeks since she had undergone gastric bypass surgery for her weight loss when she decided to appear on the show in 1999. As per her, the show's producer asked her to step on a scale. 

Well I didn’t know this, but I was stepping on a scale. And I looked up and in red, big numbers, 233 lbs. showed up on this thing.

She further shared her thinking, "I said, ‘Wait a minute?’ and I looked down and all I could think was ‘Howard, ready to shame me?’ They purposely did it.”

The Wilson Philips singer was over 300 pounds when she decided to take the gastric bypass surgery as a part of her weight loss journey, but it wasn't of much help for her weight loss.

As per an article in 2010, she appeared in The Dr. Oz Show, and the team had prescribed her a 90-day program that involved "daily exercise and food journal" to help her with her weight loss. 

And it happened; the singer lost a total of 150 lbs which is immensely impressive.

Her weight loss journey was nothing easy, but she got right back to the grindstone and did it every time. 

In 2012, after having an impressive weight loss, she underwent lap-band surgery, helping her lose 30 lbs more. 

Despite growing up in fame and fortune, her experience clearly shows that struggle is real for everyone. 

Wilson has found confidence within herself, and she seems to have maintained her current weight. 

Moreover, her family life is also extremely merry, backed by the gratifying presence of her beautiful family. 

Is Carnie Wilson Still Married?

Of course, she is!

She has been married to her husband, Rob Bonfiglio, since 2000, and they share two daughters. 

Their daughters' names are Luciana Bella and Lola Sofia Bonfiglio. Going through Wilson's social media posts shows her family life in all gaiety. 

They have completed 21 successful years of their life together, and to commemorate some memories of her wedding, Wilson took to her Instagram to share the picture of her beautiful wedding. 

The picture featured her husband, mother, and father, respectively. Sharing the beautiful pictures, she also shared how when she showed her daughters the picture, her response was, 

 As I showed my daughter [Lola Bonfiglio] some of these photos she said to me "Mom can I wear your wedding dress for my wedding?" I couldn't believe my ears... that's quite possibly the sweetest thing anyone has ever asked me? That's my girl. 

The singer shares an ample amount of family pictures on her social media. Whether it's wishing her husband on his birthday and showing her love for him or her life with her daughters, her Instaram is an open book of her family life.

In all of this praiseworthy family life she lives, one thing we cannot miss to address is the love her husband has for her. 

Her husband (fiance of the time) was also present in the infamous Howard Stern interview that day.

When he was hurled with questions such as why would he want to be with her "at her size," he handled the questions with full dignity and did not fail to make her lady-love feel supported and loved.

She shared how her to-be-husband quickly went on and bought some yellow roses for her after the interview. 

While Stern solely predicted that the relationship wouldn't work, here we are 21 years later, addressing their togetherness and the immense love they have for each other. 

Guess Stern was absolutely wrong all along!
