EJ Johnson and his family are more than thrilled that he is now living a healthier lifestyle.

Magic’s 22-year-old son recently underwent gastric sleeve surgery and has since lost 50 pounds. During Saturday night’s Carousel of Hope Ball, HipHollywood caught up with the Johnson family, including EJ to talk about about the big change.

“It’s a huge deal and it’s a huge change for me,” EJ explained. “I really just wanted to transform myself and get a jump on a new life and take control of how I’ve taken care of myself. It was just the right thing to do for that. And so I’ve very excited for everything and for myself right now. It’s going to be a journey.”

The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills Star’s parents, Cookie and Magic also chimed in. “I wanted him to live a long healthy life. We wanted to get him on the right track,” Cookie said. “I think it was really smart to do it while he was still young. That way you work out, you eat right and you can recover a lot quicker. It was before any of the bad things happened. It was before diabetes. Before high blood pressure and all that. Now he’s on a right track and he’s feeling good about himself.”

Magic, who was the night’s honoree, receiving the Brass Ring Award, shared with us that EJ is now taking “ownership” of his health. “His mother did an outstanding job of researching and I’m so proud of her. And now, EJ is going to the gym five days a week, that didn’t happen before. It’s really helped him to say ‘okay, I like the way I feel and look. Now let me continue.'”

    I have read many times that this boy is loud and extremely obnoxious. He seems to constantly need and demand attention. His parents contend that they are so proud of him, but why? Every time I see the boy I can;t help be reminded of that old adage ” a child only a mother could love” pew!
