‘The Real’ host candidly discussed her decision to remove her breast implants while also sizzling in hot summer looks in the issue of ‘Cosmopolitan for Latinas’ — see what else she had to say!
Adrienne Bailon, 31, sizzles while showing off a slew of swimwear in the August issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, and the interview proved to be just as telling as she opened up about her decision to get breast implants in her teens — and weighed in on why she had them removed.
“I had my breasts done when I was 19. 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,” she said.
The engaged star also shared tips on how she keeps her long-term relationship hot. “You have to make somebody continue to want you. Nothing makes a man more turned on than saying over the phone, ‘I’m in bed and this is what I wish was happening.’ Send a sexy photo. I don’t mean a spread eagle pose in lingerie [laughs], just telling him, ‘I’m in bed wearing lingerie and it smells like you. Wishing you were here.’”
While the star may have found her true love, she admitted that dating wasn’t always easy. “I’ve gone through a lot to get where I am; I’ve had boy ups and downs like no one can imagine. 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 turn to me and said, ‘I’m your soulmate.’ I just boo hoo cried. I know it sounds crazy, but I’m not in search of a soulmate because I believe she’s it—and that’s good enough for me,” she said.
She also addressed how moving from NY to LA actually helped her relationship. “When I got the job everyone was asking, what are you going to do? I thought that was an absurd question. There is no way I’m not going to follow my dream for a man. In my 30s, that feeling clicked: Yes, I love you, yes, I want to be with you, yes, I want a family with you, but I come first. Once I was able to articulate that, Lenny found me even more attractive. I think that’s why I’m engaged today.”
