Not A Pretty Picture: When Celeb Diet Spokespeople Gain The Weight Back

Weight loss programs will use all kinds of tricks and techniques to entice you to buy in — from discounts and free food to real life testimonials. Lately, the weight loss market has been flooded with a glut of famous faces shilling for one company or another, promising that by sticking with the program customers can lose 20, 30 or 40 pounds.

But what happens when the celebrity spokesperson doesn’t lose, but gain? Or loses the weight, only to yo-yo back up to their pre-program weight?

Carnie Wilson is Fat. So What?

“I’m fat as f***, what can I say? You know, after all these years, it’s just like we are who we are and it’s a struggle for me and sometimes I’m heavier and sometimes I’m thinner.”

—Ex-Wilson Phillips-er Carnie Wilson on her recent weight gain. Carnie famously had her stomach stapled to shed some pounds, but then had the staples taken out. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Enough Already With The Reality TV Weight Loss Shows!

Just when I thought no one could exploit her struggle with weight any more than Carnie Wilson, Kirstie Alley is fat again and eager to capitalize on it. Rumor has it that she signed on to do a reality show on A&E about her struggle to lose weight. I wonder if it will air in the same time slot as Carnie’s show, “Unstapled”? And I wonder what it will be called—my best guesses are “Tipping The Scale” and “Really Fat Actress.” Inner grimace. Inner groan. Keep reading »

Carnie Wilson Lets It All Hang Out … Again

I have seriously had enough of playing voyeur to Carnie Wilson’s ultra-public weight struggles. I liked her in Wilson Phillips and on her short-lived talk show. But then came the live broadcast of her gastric bypass surgery (gross!) and her appearance on “Oprah” to talk about it. Next was “Celebrity Fit Club,” two autobiographies, a spread in Playboy, and a gig hosting “The Newlywed Game” on the Game Show Network. But that’s not all, folks. In a move that I can only describe as seriously tacky, Carnie will be starring in her very own reality TV series on GSN called “Carnie: Wilson: Unstapled.” The show will follow her life as a working mother trying to lose 50 pounds of baby weight. Carnie, noooo! We’ve already seen the inside of your abdominal cavity—what else do you want from us? We get it. You have battled with obesity and come out the victor. We are happy for you. You look great! Please move on with your life. You no longer need to use your weight as a gimmick for success. [Google News] Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Nas Won’t Give Kelis Any Money

  • Carnie Wilson and husband Rob Bonfiglio welcomed a new baby girl last Friday. [Dlisted] — Isn’t it interesting that when she was in Wilson Phillips, the label tried to “hide” Carnie behind the skinny group members, and since then she has been more popular than them?
  • Alec Baldwin says he was suicidal over the angry voicemail he left for his daughter, which was made public by ex-wife Kim Basinger. [People] — When will people realize they shouldn’t record things they don’t want others to hear or watch?

Star Couplings: Evan Rachel Wood No Longer Marilyn’s Lolita Fantasy

  • Evan Rachel Wood finally wisened up and dumped Marilyn Manson because he’s “controlling.” And not because he wears white contacts, masturbates on stage, and spikes his morning joe with absinthe? [Star]
  • So, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling have broken up again. Okay, I’m sad for them, really, but maybe this IS a sign that Ryan is supposed to be my celebrity rebound?! [Contact Music]
