Carnie Wilson & Lola: Grove Gals

Carnie Wilson and Lola, 7, were seen shopping at The Grove in West Hollywood, Calif. on Monday (February 18). The pair both wore black dresses for the trip out. Carnie also has a 3-year-old daughter named Luci with husband Rob Bonfiglio.

In the latest season of Food Network’s Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off – she came in second place – losing to Dean McDermott.

When asked by the Food Network what it was like having her family there she replied, “I was just so happy to have my daughters, my husband and my mom there. It was the warmest, most wonderful envelope of love and support. It meant so much to me that my mom was standing behind me; she’s my biggest soldier. I felt like I’d already made them proud no matter the outcome.”

As for what’s next – Carnie said, “The first thing I want to do after almost winning is to cook a nice meal for my family. Afterward, I want to take a nap. Then I go back to being a mom to my two girls. Down the line I have some concerts coming up with Wilson Phillips, and I’ll be co-hosting some episodes of The Talk on CBS.”

    Carnie you need to watch what your daughter is putting in her mouth and get her more active! Poor thing is looking to head in the direction of becoming over weight. She already looks a bit heavy for being 7!

    Like mother, like daughter… 🙂

  • Why are we throwing stones at an overweight mother and her little girl? There is good reason to believe that once the little girl gets a growth spurt, she may no longer be overweight. Some believe a little surplus is good despite what the “experts” say. Let’s not criticize anyone, especially not a mother and child, for being overweight. We’re acting like a bunch of bitchy old biddies, clucking our tongues and pointing our fingers.

      Actually there isn’t a good chance that she will have a growth spurt and no longer be overweight. Children who are clearly overweight, and who have overweight parents are much more likely to struggle with obesity their entire lives.

      This is when eating habits are formed, this is when people develop habits such as eating for comfort or for stress relief, that they will have to deal with as adults. For me, it isn’t about criticizing anybody, I just think it’s very sad that Carnie, with her history of fighting weight and depression, didn’t do a better job in getting her daughter off to a good start.

    I am speaking as a woman that has struggled with obesity my entire life. I came by it honestly… my mother was obese, as was her mother. I grew up in a household where there were home cooked meals every night… fried foods, potatoes and a plate of sliced bread and butter with every meal. I had bad eating habits and cultivated an appetite for the kinds of foods I was raised on…I craved carbs and refused to recognize that I was ruining my health and quality of life until I was almost incapacitated. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2004 and lost half my body weight, just as Carnie did in 1999. My story has a happier ending than hers. I learned a valuable lesson and used the surgery as a tool to get the weight off and KEEP it off…9 years later I am still at my lowest adult weight. I still love to eat and I still WANT all those delicious fattening foods of my childhood but I only put as much food as will comfortably fit in my bypass pouch and then I stop eating…period. I totally understand Carnie’s struggle with food, but I don’t understand her lack of discipline with an issue that could end her life! She has 2 small children to raise and she not only needs to be healthy enough to do that, but she needs to take her negative experience with obesity and educate her children to make better choices. Being critical of a mother and daughter who are overweight is not the issue here…the issue is that this particular mother knows better and is being careless with not only her own life, but with her child’s life. It is really no one else’s business what Carnie Wilson does with her or her daughter’s life IF she is footing the bill for all these weight loss surgeries, but if she is having them covered by an insurance company, there others paying for her poor choices. I don’t mean to be cruel or mean-spirited towards Carnie and I hope she gets some help to make her battle with weight easier for her to win. Her life depends on it.
