Carnie Wilson collapsed on the set of The Newlywed Game, causing major concern for her health!
Carnie blamed the medication she's on for a cyst that doctors found on her neck, but the producers fear that her excess weight is to blame. A source reveals:
"In the middle of the show, Carnie went white and began to sway. Her speech was garbed. During taping days, a medic is just off-camera.
"She's managed to lose some weight but the pounds aren't melting away, which bothers her. I think now she's finally motivated to take off the weight and keep it off."
When Carnie appeared on the Dr. Oz Show in February she was told that she dangerously obese and she admits that having kids "derailed" her weight loss. Carnie says:
"I need help. Having children derailed me a bit. I don't want to be drastic. I want to be realistic. I have to be a teacher to my daughters.
"Lola started to notice commercials on TV with people who are trying to lose weight, and she looks at me. She's thinking about this stuff, and it's getting to her."
You can do it, Carnie — just do it safely!
Update: According to the show source, Carnie did not collapse. She became lightheaded on the set.
