Hmm, that’s a difficult one. First congrats on "rocking your frock" as you say. I know that I personally would be thinking about all the awesome snarky things I could say to this chick in my head.  I’m not sure, however, if it would do any good? (other than to probably  make you feel better for a second).  I would guess it’s probably best to ignore it unless it comes up. Otherwise the whole weekend will end up being centered around the tummy tuck issue.  I mean you can definitely use humor should the issue come up.  Say what you were going to say about working out a lot, etc, and say something like well i heard a rumor i got a tummy tuck-if I had known i would have stopped working out so hard! you know, be graceful about it.  It will make you look better and this stupid A chick look like a total b****.  Just a thought? Hope it goes well-just try and relax and I’m sure it’ll be fine!

Just wear the most amazing outfits, I’m sure all the other girls are going to be complementing you left and right and just over do it a little with the very enthusiastic "THANKS!!!" and even throw in a few "I Knows!" when someone gives your a complement. Just flatter yourself by saying how committed you’ve been and how proud you are of yourself. You did work hard and if you appear & sound very confident it will really drive the girl who started the rumor crazy!

Have fun being Fabolous!

Ugh, sorority cattyness.  Been there…and fought back!! 

I would be graceful about it, you can’t go in there being all bitchy and expect to come out the better person.  No that you would or anything, but still.  This comes from my experience.  But of course you’ve got to approach her and let her know her comments were hurtful, dishonest, and unwelcome.  Honestly, I think I’d catch her while she had a group of people around her (so there are witnesses) and with my best honey voice go "So, I heard through the grapevine that you couldn’t believe the success I had with my new trainer and just wrote it off as a tummy tuck!  Ohmygoodness, my trainer is fabulous!!"  and then start gushing like there isn’t a care in the world.  Remember, you have to play like there isn’t a care in the world.  As soon as people see you’re not hung up on it they’ll realize how badly a light is cast upon this girl.  Trust me!

Ugh! I can only imagine the butterflies in your stomach, knowing that you’re going to see her. Here is my take on people who gossip: if they’re talking about you, you must be doing something right. If they’re taking the time and energy and breath to spread rumors and lies, you must have made an impact somewhere in their lives. So for that, good for you! I’m like you in that I always say "Man, I wish I had said something" after the fact. Or I’ll have something SO GOOD planned, and chicken out at the last minute. In your situation, I’d try to make a joke out of it if your health/weight/figure comes up in conversation. If how you look doesn’t come up, maybe leave it alone. I think for me it would depend on which glass of wine I was on 😉 At the very least, they’re talking about how GOOD you look. Let ’em talk, you know the truth.

If someone brings it up in front of her or brings it up period just say that she gave you the docs number because she used him for her FIRST tummy tuck.

Don’t be snarky. Be polite,and tell anyone who asks you gained your physique by exercse alone, then pass along your trainer’s name.

I say take the high road and don’t bring it up.  If A mentions something to you, I would say something like "yep, diet and excercise does amazing things" or something along those lines.
