The reality star talks about cosmetic surgeries
In a recent Instagram Live interview with radio personality Leah Henry, Rivera talked about the cosmetic surgeries she’s had. She revealed that there is one procedure that she does regret.
“I’ve gotten my breasts done and I’ve gotten lipo in my stomach, which I never should have done,” she said. “It was the worst decision I ever made. First of all, I didn’t need it. I just decided like, you know how on the bottom you have a little something. When you have a baby that little pouch just doesn’t go away. I was like, I’m gonna suck this little pouch out. By me doing that, I felt like the fat deposited in other places.”
Now, who Rivera says she believes her body is putting fat below her waist, says she hasn’t gotten her butt done. “If I could suck this sh*t out, I would. I don’t have to get a BBL, I don’t have to take—it’s crazy, even when I go to my trainers, I say, ‘I wanna lose my butt…It’s just too much butt!'”
