Hadn't Anne Diamond kept quiet about it too even though she was on a Celebrity Slimmers type of show? I seem to remember another celeb on the same show Carol something or other who really let fly at her for not saying she'd had surgery and the papers branded her a cheat too. That's what I mean about being honest in the first place cause it comes out eventually.

But then you get someone like Sharon Osbourne and no one makes a fuss about her or criticises her.......it's crazy! I don't think all the publicity will harm Fern Britton but I wonder who told the News of the World about her surgery in the first place?

It was probably leaked through the hospital she went through to get the op done as disgracefully as that sounds    I do think its a very strong possibility  

I do think your right too and it won't really harm her...she will just have to ride the storm at the moment

She made a point of saying only 5 people knew she had it done so it's possible they told other people, someone at the clinic told the paper....or even someone saw her going into the clinic and told about her?

I still reckon it was the hospital/clinic themselves that leaked it.....perhaps a worker with access to computer details or something??

I don't think she'll ever find out for sure...the paper probably won't release their source so she more than likely will just have to suck it up and just take it unfortunately....she'll be yesterday's news before long though

She's still in the news.....today's paper said she took 2 days off from her Good Morning prog and they had to get someone in to cover for her. Apparently she's taken time out so the fuss will die down and it said her bosses aren't pleased cause she didn't tell them about the surgery. I can't see as that's true though

I doubt that too...

I wouldn't be surprised if they advised her to take the time off and our looking out for her reather than mad ...at the end of the day she is very popular...her and Phil so they want to keep things happy I reckon

I know she's had a bit of a fall out with her bosses even before the surgery thing cropped up. She wants to bring out her own clothing range for larger women but her bosses said it would be a conflict of interest because of the fashion slot on Good Morning.

All celebrities go through a phase where they're knocked off their pedestals for a short time and I think the same thing's happening to Fern Britton. Some people like taking a pop at stars for whatever reason  

About the surgery though......I read a letter in yesterday's paper from a woman who said she was disappointed in Fern not saying she'd had surgery. The woman said she watched Good Morning and felt guilty she wasn't losing weight as quickly as Fern then she felt cheated when she heard about the surgery. It must be hard being a celeb at times......how much do you keep private and what do you make public?

Being honest I have to admit I do think it was very silly of Fern not to say it out straight from the beginning as it does kind of suggest now that she was deliberately not telling so she could make out she was losing it herself solely from diet and exercise (I don't necessarily believe this but I'm just saying to some it looks that way) And its not like she is a naive
celeb either...she was been interviewed about her weight loss alot before it all came out and she was making statements like her weight loss was down to cycling, walking the dog and not eating too much...I'm also off-putish when I hear her biographer say that she was always happy being a big woman but because people criticised her for being a bad role model for big women citing that she may encourage people to think that obese is okay she went and then decided to lose it.  
Where has the woman who responded like this in late 2005 when criticised for her size gone?
"I would rather be big and happy than on a diet and miserable".
If this is true however and she did feel this pressure to lose weight its a really disturbing development thats occuring in society...must we always now have the overweight or obese looking desperate, or the butt of the jokes or unhappy/depressed because if we don't we may be encouraging people to be fat?    

 
I didn't realise she wasn't getting on with her bosses before this though..and if that is the reason....over her wanting to get into plus size clothing for women? I think its pretty lame and unfair for them to suggest it conflicts with their little fashion slot...like she advertises Ryvita does that interfere with their cooking slot aswell? Its really stupid
