Rapper Fat Joe's new single is called "Drop a Body."

That's appropriate, since he pretty much has. The hip-hopper, best known for his #1 single "Lean Back" with Remy Ma, recently dropped 88 pounds.

That's on top of 72 he had already shed from his peak weight of 425 (you can see how he got his name). Joe is now down to a respectable 265!

Fat Joe now and just three short years ago.

The reason is simple: "I can't leave my daughter behind," he says of of 5-year-old Azaryah. "I want to be here for her; I don't want to die on her."

Joe says he dropped the weight over the past nine months by working out two hours a day with a trainer, and by sticking to healthier foods.

After seven of his friends in their 30s passed away last year due to heart attacks, Fat Joe turned around his life. But will he change his name?

"They're all trying to alter my name," he laughed, "but I can't see myself as anything else ... I think I gotta ask Diddy what my new name is."

LeAnn Rimes wants critics of her lean bikini body to know one thing: she's fine.

The country star says all the "hoopla about my body" – which intensified after photos of her in a bikini emerged from her recent honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas with Eddie Cibrian – has been hurtful and unnecessary.

"People are calling me bulimic or anorexic," she tells People, "and these are real, serious issues and diseases – that I don't have."

"For someone who is healthy, who works hard for my body, it's very frustrating," she adds. "I work out and take care of myself, but not in an over-obsessive way."

Adds her trainer, Michael Jackson at Equinox in Woodland Hills, Calif.: "My primary concern with her is that she's toned and healthy. And she is."

LeAnn Rimes is taking on the haters again.

For the second time this spring, the washed-up singer has responded to a Twitter follower who thinks LeAnn ought to increase her food intake. Regarding the following photo, someone wrote to Rimes:

"Whoa, you're scary skinny! Sorry don't mean to offend but that's a lot of bones showing through skin."

Rimes, condescendingly, disagrees.

"Those are called abs not bones, love," she shot back. "This is my body, and I can promise you I'm a healthy girl. I'm just lean."

New husband and The Playboy Club star, Eddie Cibrian, likely agrees. But do you? Is Rimes underweight?

Ciara is certainly no stranger to revealing fashion, so it's not shocking that the R&B singer feels quite at ease wearing anything ... or nothing!

"I feel the sexiest when I'm by myself, walking around nude," the 25-year-old says. "I have this new obsession with nudity, it's really weird."

"It may sound weird, but I just really love embracing the body."

Weird, perhaps ... but weird in a hot way!

Although Ciara works out five days a week and tries to "eat clean" most of the time, her goal isn't to become thin, just to stay in relatively good shape. "I would never advise somebody to be so strict to where you don't enjoy yourself," she says.

If you missed it, Olivia Ward won The Biggest Loser last night.

She and her sister, fellow finalist Hannah Curlee, had already won big before the final results were even unveiled. The combined weight they lost is nearly what Olivia alone weighed at the start of The Biggest Loser’s 11th season!

In an interview with OK!, the ladies discussed their journey.

Olivia Ward, Hannah Curlee

Tipping the scales at 261 pounds, Olivia, a married  opera singer, had been told by her doctor that she might never bear children if she didn’t change her life.

That was enough to spur her into action.

She went on the weight-loss show and did just that with Hannah (who, by age 32, had ballooned to 248 pounds) by her side, dropping half her body weight!

Not only did that earn her a $250,000 prize and bragging rights, but something all the more important - self-respect, and the feeling that she's in control.

Hines Ward was named the Dancing With the Stars winner Tuesday night.

Olivia Ward, no relation, was also a big winner - on The Biggest Loser!

Although they started this season of the NBC show as an under-the-radar twosome, sisters Ward (second from left, below) and Hannah Curlee became breakout stars following a sensational run during the trip to New Zealand earlier this year.

All her hard work paid off last night!

Also in the final four ahead of the finale were Irene Alvarado and Jay Jacobs, who vied for America's vote and the right to compete for the ultimate prize.

Joining Hannah and Olivia in an all-female final three was Irene, who became a best buddy to the Purple Team during the season. Among them, a winner emerged.

After an incredible 129-lb. weight loss over a span of eight months, New York City opera singer Olivia Ward was crowned Season 11's Biggest Loser.

"I'm proof that even after having a baby, you can look better and sexier than ever," Kardashian tells the publication of the bikini body on display here:

She still plans to lose more weight, but actress Carrie Fisher's life has already changed for the better since she's shed 30 pounds with the help of Jenny Craig.

In the most drastic before-and-after images since the Bristol Palin plastic surgery pics (sorry, corrective jaw surgery pics), Fisher showed off a slimmer frame.

The Star Wars star, a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, sought help last fall after tipping the scale at 180 pounds. She's already lost a good chunk of that:

"I had failed with so many diets, so losing any amount of weight seemed crazy," says Fisher, who also made headlines recently stating that John Travolta is gay.

With Jenny Craig, "I didn't have to starve or deprive myself of my favorite foods."

The weight gain got to a point where the 5-foot-1 star didn't even want to been in public because the ridicule was just too much to take. Not anymore.

"I used to feel like I had to apologize for the way I looked whenever I stepped out of the house," Fisher says. "It's a great feeling to feel like myself again, like I am worthy of compliments. I no longer want to hide in the house."

Kristie Alley had another rough rehearsal, but rebounded and earned her first perfect score of the season on Dancing With the Stars Monday night.

Before the loquacious actress snagged a 10 for her Argentine tango with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, she literally fell off the stage during practice. 

Kirstie has been adhering to a strict 1,400-calorie per day diet to lose weight, but Maksim says she needs to get up to 2,000 calories each day.

“Usually what I do to lose weight is 1,400 calories, but I guess if I’m working out 5-7 hours I have to change it up a little bit," Alley admits.

Hopefully she does what she has to do to stay in the game. Watch both her performances from Monday below and see if you think she will:

U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock of Illinois is showcasing why many consider him to be the best-looking member of Congress in the new issue of Men's Health.

The Republican isn't just showing off his shirtless abs to show off, however. He's flaunting the bod to promote the "Fit for Life Summer Challenge." 

That's an initiative focused on losing weight to reduce risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke, which you can learn about in detail at Men's Health.

We're sensing a bipartisan collaboration with Michelle Obama and her Let's Move campaign. Maybe? Anyway, check out the Aaron Schock pics below ...

SCHOCK & AWE: Wonder how many times Aaron has heard that play on words in regards to his washboard stomach? Probably at least six. Maybe 12.
