Job well done, EJ Johnson! The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills standout wasn't shy about sharing his weight loss journey on Season 2 of E!'s Sunday night series, and six months after his gastric sleeve surgery, Johnson is proud to have shed a whopping 180 pounds. "Half of me is gone," he proclaimed on the July 12 finale of RKOBH. "I feel that my confidence level has definitely gone up. And I'm, you know, a new bitch."
Opening up to his friends Morgan Stewart, Jonny Drubel, and others on the show's finale about his revamped eating habits during a dinner party on the show — he eschewed bread since he hasn't had the carb in a year — Johnson credited Pilates and a personal trainer with keeping him slim.
"The surgery was definitely the best thing that ever happened to me," Magic Johnson's 22-year-old son confirmed. "I never thought that I'd look this good, and that is the God's honest truth."
Johnson's newfound confidence has encouraged him to get back into the dating scene, and on the RKOBH finale, the NYU student went out for drinks with another famous offspring, Jason Kidd, Jr. "The attention I get from men now is completely different than before. I feel like I definitely don't have to work as hard" to get dates, Johnson said.
"I feel like my stars have aligned right now. I just put out my energy, whether it's flirty or sexual or romantic energy, and I just receive response," he summed up. "I get it back."
And heads up, men of Beverly Hills: Johnson isn't just looking for Mr. Right — he's okay with Mr. Right Now, too. "Everybody wants to be wanted. I'm ready to let someone in," the slimmed-down reality star revealed. "And instead of a casual hookup I think maybe a 'friends with benefits' [scenario] would be nice. Y'know, a guy to have fun with and some trips with — and have incredible sex with. That would be good!"
