“To all my loving Filipino fans, here is the proof. My Famous Ribs, I kept them with me all these years,” she wrote on a recent Instagram photo of said ribs.
She posted it after an entertainment show in the Philippines, where she has a huge following, brought up the rumored rib removal a few days ago.
After the interview she posted an Instagram photo of her bare abdomen and skinny waist with this caption: “You think I removed my ribs? Yes, no? #ThaliasRibs #Myth.”
Latino Fox News dug deeper into the story, quoting the Plastic Surgery Portal that indeed, rib removal to create a slimmer waist contour is a real procedure, though not commonly done in the United States. It involves removal of ribs No. 12 and 11 – the so-called “floating” ribs.
Suddenly we have a hankerin’ for barbecue.
