Adrienne Bailon: "I Had My Breasts Done At 19"
The multi-hyphenate opens up about her cosmetic surgery
In the thick of planning her wedding, Adrienne Bailon found time to jump on the latest cover of Cosmo for Latinas. The Real co-host got engaged to her long-time beau Lenny Santiago around Valentine's Day and has since been preparing for her walk down the aisle.
The Puerto Rican/ Ecuadorian bombshell is pictured sporting a red hot bathing suit inside the cover story, where she also details her thoughts on keeping a man, finding her soul mate and going under the knife.
"I had my breasts done when I was 19," Bailon told Cosmo. "I've always found curvy, voluptuousness so beautiful, and when you're that age, you think, I want to be sexy and womanly. I went to a doctor in Miami and asked for a "B" cup and ended up with double "Ds." I had to go back to work with The Cheetah Girls, where I was supposed to look much younger, and here I was with these porn star boobs. I went from one insecurity to the next — feeling like I was too small to feeling like when I walked into the room everyone knew my boobs were fake."
Earlier in her sit-down, she dished on who her soul mate is. Hint: it isn't Lenny. "I've gone through a lot to get where I am; I've had boy ups and downs like no one can imagine," she explained. "There were times when I would hysterically cry to my sister and say, 'If God has someone for me, where is he? Why am I not being understood? Why can't he just love me — am I not enough?' One day, my sister turned to me and said, 'I'm your soul mate.' I just boo hoo cried. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm not in search of a soul mate because I believe she's it — and that's good enough for me."
