Comedian Lisa Lampanelli has split from her husband of four years, Jimmy Cannizzaro aka “Big Balls”.
Yvette Shearer, the couple’s rep, said that Lisa and Jimmy remain great friends but “weren’t a match as man and wife”.
Lisa Lampanelli, who she jokingly has referred to as “Big Balls”, said, “We still call each other first when something great or horrible happens in our lives, and we expect that to continue. We’re leaving the marriage in much better shape than when we came in, since we each weigh 100 pounds less.”
Lisa first underwent the surgery and inspired her husband, former club owner and now security professional, to follow her lead two months later.
Lampanelli said, “I feel like I’ve reached the weight I’m supposed to be. I’m officially a skinny bit*h!”
Her curves were the brunt of many “fat chick” jokes that made her famous. She tried diets for years and even “food rehab” to deal with her food addiction.
She finally had the surgical procedure because she had tried everything to lose weight.
The comedian previously stated, “For 32 years – from 18 to 50 – I tried everything on the planet, and once I had a clean slate with that I said, ‘You know what? Nothing’s working for me. I’m going to treat this like the addiction that it is. I’m going to get this surgery and use it as a tool.’ That’s all it is, a tool to help me get over it.”
She joked that now that she’s lost so much weight that no one recognizes her anymore, saying, “I can be a total b***h everywhere I go.”
Most of us know Lisa Lampanelli from her brutal celebrity roasts. Honestly, we think she looked more attractive a little chunkier.
