Adrienne Bailon: “I Had My Breasts Done At 19″
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.”
