The Carnie Wilson Show

01/21/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

Singer and former talk show host Carnie Wilson gave an unusual performance Tuesday -- a live broadcast via the Internet of her gastric bypass surgery. Wilson, the 31-year-old daughter of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, said prior to undergoing the knife that she was having the operation because she is "morbidly obese." Many people who tried to see the surgery at weren't successful in their attempts because the Internet server couldn't handle the demand. Wilson's stomach was reduced to a small pouch and attached to the small intestine. As a result, Wilson won't be able to eat as much, and food will leave her body before it is fully digested.
