The Real cohost says insecurities led her to get implants and also remove them.
Adrienne Bailon brought up an interesting point on an episode of The Real when she admitted that she had breast implants inserted when she was younger and then had them removed because of her insecurities. After appearing on the Disney movie The Cheetah Girls, the actress-singer-TV personality figured the film wouldn't really go anywhere and so she went for a drastic change.
"Let me go up the ante and get my sexy on," said Bailon, 30. "I just turned 18 so you know when you turn 18 and I had been like a little girl group for such a long time, you want to feel sexy and womanly and maybe I'll get bigger boobs. So I did. At 19 years old I went and got breast implants and I went from one insecurity to another insecurity."
When Disney approached her about a sequel to the film, they didn't quite like that she now had double DD size breasts. Not only did the drastic change make it difficult for her to find work, but she had new insecurities to contend with, which led her to have the implants removed.
"I got my breast implants taken out because I looked crazy," she continued. "The insecurity was like 'I don't have big breasts' to 'Now everyone is looking at my breasts' and I was more embarrassed that people knew I was so insecure that I went and got breast implants [in the first place]."
Since then, she's had her own breasts lifted a bit, but said that she hasn't ruled out getting implants again once she's older, has breastfed her children, and her boobs have started sagging to the floor.
