I was just on “The Morning Show With Mike And Juliet” in New York. After me, there was a big segment on Valerie and her weight loss.
Once again, while I applaud Valerie for losing weight, she is being paid for it. Look at the history:
Joy Behar – The View – Jenny Craig, lost and gained it all back and possibly then some.
Whoopi Goldberg – The View – Nutrisystem, lost and gained it almost all back.
Kertsi Alley – Jenny Craig, lost and then gained it all back and then some.
Queen Latifa – Jenny Criag, lost a little weight and was removed as a spokesperson when she failed to lose any more.
Valerie Bertinelli – Jenny Criag, has lost 40 and we need to wait and see.
Phyicia Ryshad – Down 21 pounds and we need to wait and see.
Again, I think it is great that they lose weight, but wouldn’t you if they were paying you by the pound? It’s a great motivator, but when the dollars stop, look at the history of success.
And if they are not strength training, then they are losing muscle and fat and when they gain it back, it’s all fat.
