So, I have decided the current recommended way to revive a lackluster career is to gain a lot of weight and then take it off as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers or such.
Look at what it it has done for Valerie Bertinelli and Marie Osmond — both had practically disappeared from the public eye, and now — BAM — everywhere you look, there they are, and ’50 pounds lighter’ to boot.
And, now even comedians — the ones you’d think would make the biggest fun of this phenomena — are joining in.
Jason Alexander, George from “Seinfeld.”
Nicole Sullivan of “MADtv” and “King of Queens.”
Sara Rue of “Less than Perfect.”
Really? Is this the only way to get your name back out there?
Or can actors only lose weight when everyone is watching them (or someone is paying them to do it)?
I suppose it’s inspirational on some level. But mostly, it comes across as desperate.
Oh well…reality shows have trained us to enjoy desperate.
