WILSON PHILLIPS star Carnie Wilson has befriended former American football superstar Anthony Davis, in a bid to help him through a gastric bypass operation. Davis will undergo the surgery live on the internet today (14MAR06), just like his singing pal did when she went under the knife to shed half her weight in 1999. Like her, the former footballer has been told he risks life-ending ailments if he doesn't lose at least 100 pounds (45.3 kilograms).
