EJ Johnson is dishing on how many pounds he has lost post-surgery. And it’s major. Congrats! Peep his interview on “WENDY” and get the deets on an alleged cast consisting of former reality stars for a brand new TVOne reality series “The Next 15” inside….
The fabulous EJ Johnson dropped in on the “Wendy Williams Show” to show off his trimmed post-surgery bod and dish on his dramatic 100+ weight lost journey. The “#RichKidsOfBeverlyHills” star & NYU student, who’s currently finishing up his last semester, underwent gastric sleeve surgery last summer. And now, he’s over 100lbs lighter!
He revealed what made him decide to go under the knife to lose weight saying,
“It was just really a tool and I think it was just something to help me jumpstart the life I wanted to lead. I needed that push in the right direction and now my mindset has completely changed.”
The 22-year-old celebrity kid said everything is right and tight and he doesn’t think he’ll need skin graphing surgery after losing so much weight. He also dished on a few tips Star Jones (who also went under the knife to lose weight) shared with him a few months before his surgery, which was arranged by his mother Cookie Johnson.
So does EJ have a boyfriend? He said he does not. Right now, he’s totally focused on being a better him and working really hard to stay looking snatched. And SNATCHED he is. Work!
Peep his interview below:
On the reality series front….
TVOne announced a brand new reality show titled “The Next 15” during their Upfronts presentation last month. The new show will follow a group of former reality stars (male and female) as they attempt to nab another 15 minutes of fame and “RHOA, Hollywood Divas” producer Carlos King is producing it.
While the official cast has been kept under wraps, it appears a few names have been leaked.
According to TheJasmineBrand.com, former “Basketball Wives: Miami” star Jennifer Williams and former “Flavor of Love” & “I Love New York” star Tiffany Pollard are in the running to appear on the show.
Single sisters Gloria and/or Laura Govan are rumored to star on the show. They both could bring interesting storylines as they have parted ways with their former lovers/husbands/babies’ daddies, L.A. Clippers baller Matt Barnes and former former Wizards star Gilbert Arenas.
Laura will definitely bring a few extra eyeballs to the season if she decides to do the show. She’s currently involved in a nasty lawsuit against Gilbert after he allegedly kicked her and their kids out of their L.A. mansion. She also recently suffered a miscarriage with her and Gilbert’s child. Oh..and we would love to hear her thoughts on that fake “$1 million” engagement ring Gilbert gave her. Messy.
Former “Bad Girls Club” and “Marriage Boot Camp” star Natalie Nunn and former “College Hill” star Ray “Mister Ray” Cunningham are also said to be starring on the show. The show is allegedly set to premiere in the 4th quarter 2015. Do these rumored cast mates make you want to tune in?
