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.'”
‘Annihilation’s’ Leading Ladies Use Intense Military Training As Bonding Experience
Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.
For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.
“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.
And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.
