Kim Kardashian Dissed by Diet Companies That Don't Want to Help Her Lose the Baby Weight

kim and kanyePoor Kim Kardashian. She's only just announced her pregnancy and everyone is already wagering bets on how much her ample rump will spread. Yes, baby weight -- it's the scourge of every mom-to-be. So it's understandable that diet companies jump to have celeb moms as spokespeople, demonstrating how their plans can help you miraculously reclaim your pre-baby bod. Jenny Craig hired Mariah Carey after her twins, and Weight Watchers signed on Jessica Simpson. But according to TMZ, some weight loss companies are outright dissing Kim, refusing to even consider the reality star. And you won't believe why!

It's not as though Kim is actually looking for a deal, but it seems that TMZ still took the liberty of asking around. According to the site, Medifast said it was not looking for celebs to endorse them, and a Jenny Craig spokesperson reportedly said they were not interested because she's not "real" enough. Ouch. More specifically, they said they were focusing on "real results for real women" this year. Well, I don't know what their definition of real is, but I have no doubt in my mind that Kim's inevitable weight gain will be very real and her struggle to take it off once the baby arrives will be real too.

Yes, celebs are different than you and me. Huge bank accounts, private jets, and couture wardrobes easily set them apart. But if you ask me, baby weight is the one great equalizer among all women. We dread it. It's necessary of course for a healthy pregnancy, but it's really hard to watch every inch of your body get bigger over several months. That is no different whether you are a reality star or PTA mom. And to suggest Kim is not real enough just feels mean. She can still be an inspiration to other moms -- especially those with her same pear shape. In fact, I think it's great when stars as big as Jessica and Mariah are willing to let the world watch them lose weight with a program that is accessible to most people. It's inspiring.

Do you think Kim would be an inspiring weight loss spokesperson after she has her baby?

    you're reading the PR notes too literally. they say "she's not real enough." what they mean is "she's not real celebrity enough." for once, companies like weight watchers and jenny craig actually paid attention that the average american woman does NOT take her style/romance/life cues from these ridiculous women. 

    also, last i checked, neither mariah carey nor jessica simpson got famous for making a sex tape.

    this makes it sound kinda like no one can help her lose weight what about her with my first kid i rode my bike 16 miles every day and lost all of the weight and more. she can just work and do it on her own she will get more props for that too and if she wants the weight stuff she can pay for it like everyone else i dont get why they should get stuff free when the have money to pay for it

    I think it makes sense because wasn't she a supporter of some diet pills a while back? I think that's always a redic solution and it proves you're not a reliable source of weight loss techniques.

    Often times I read articles on this site and the writer seems mean and judgemental. I think you did a really nice job on this article and in fact I like this sentence in particular "Well, I don't know what their definition of real is, but I have no doubt in my mind that Kim's inevitable weight gain will be very real and her struggle to take it off once the baby arrives will be real too." Nice job. I like when the writers on here have solidarity with other women even if they are celebrities. I am still mad at Mary for calling Jessica Simpson disgusting for eating a grilled cheese and onion rings. Oh and BTW I am not a KK fan or JS fan, just someone who thinks it's better to be positive then judgemental.

    I feel that Kim can lose weight on her own, I can not see her on a diet or any other program

    Kim is a beautiful woman! I have the same type of body as she does (big butt/hip area) I don't think for one minute she will need to have those dumb weight loss programs to get back to pre baby body. She is a REAL WOMAN! You go Kim and congrats on mommy hood

    No I don't think she would be inspiring. She seems very fake to me. Her personality, looks, everything just seems fake. I find her irritating. Not inspiring at all, because she seems to be the exact opposite of what I would want to be. I actually do think Jennifer Hudson is a great spokesperson. She seems more real, more likable.

    Kim is not a REAL celeb, she became famous from a sex tape, why do we care and would consider her anything special? She is fake and her life style is horrible. If we are going to look up to anyone it should be someone with a good reputation. Not Kim K. She needs to be forgotten. She can loose weight on her own like all real woman do. Exercise.

    Kim is a fat cow. and will be even more huge after the pregnancy, and i hope it makes her just go away! she's not a celebrity, she's a show off and she isn't even pretty. America needs to find stronger role models for today's youth than this tramp!
