Nicole Eggert Makes Fun Of Being “Fat” For Funny Or Die


In this Funny or Die video, former “Baywatch” babe Nicole Eggert tackles the subject of her weight gain, leading Salon’s Broadsheet to wonder: empowering or embarrassing? In the skit, Eggert bounds across the sand to save two young men pretending to drown to get some hot female lifeguard action. When they see Eggert has put on a few pounds, they pass on her life-saving techniques. “Is this because I’m fat?” Eggert asks. Suffice to say, the boys’ superficial response generates its own karmic punishment in the end. Salon’s Julia Furlan can’t figure out if this is a “you go, girl” moment or a sad mockery of plus-sized women. Since Eggert is slated to star in the next season of VH1′s “Celebrity Fit Club,” the former “Baywatch”-er has already put the subject of her size on the table for discussion. What do you think: a clever spin on anti-fat acceptance or a sad way for a woman to have to get publicity? [Broadsheet]
