The reality TV star has slimmed back to her 1992 PLAYBOY shape after signing up to try America's new TRIMSPA diet plan.
She claims she ballooned in size as a result of suffering depression brought on by contesting her late husband's will in court.
And it was Stern's jibes that really made her get serious about shedding the pounds - even though she was hurt by his nasty comments at the time.
She says, "He was like, 'OK Anna Nicole, I know you weigh 300 pounds and we've got a scale here. We wanna get you on the scale.' I was just like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe he's doing this to me.'
"He had a bunch of callers call in and be really rude and say, 'Oh Anna, get on the scale, I'll give you a bunch of jewellery.'
"He let all the mean people really hunt my feelings."
"He went way over the top and that really really hurt... It depressed me more. It was a hateful thing that he did... but I went home, I looked in the mirror and I was like, 'I am fat,' so I just started losing weight."11/02/2004 02:33
