Wife of the Week: Charles Barkley, Weight Watchers Spokesman, er uh Spokeswoman?

By |2018-11-21T07:38:49+00:00March 28th, 2012|6 Comments

Charles Barkley has been a lot of things throughout his illustrious career.

He’s been an NBA Most Valuable Player, an 11-time NBA All-Star and the SEC Player of the Year.

He scored more than 23,000 points in the NBA and snatched up well over 12,000 rebounds.


Charles Barkley: Zany and entertaining

He’s outspoken, opinionated, abrasive, aggressive and at times obscene.  He is also clever, funny, entertaining and amusing.

He’s both a big gambler and a horrible golfer.  He has had plenty of high-profile friends through the years, including both Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods.

Barkley is all of that and more, but there’s one thing that he’s never been – A WOMAN.

Until today.

Most that follow basketball know that Charles Barkley is successfully dropping a lot of weight recently.  During the process, he has a gig with Weight Watchers.

But Barkley’s relationship with Weight Watchers has taken a new and amusing turn, as recently reported by CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell, via his Twitter account.

Rovell sent out the following sneak peak of Barkley dressed up like a woman (for the ad).

Quite an image.

You can’t help but wonder if Barkley got any blisters upon wearing those flats, or if he dropped any f-bombs upon wearing them.

Either way, it’s Barkley being Barkley.  Love him or hate him, he’s endless entertainment.

Weight Watchers just may have to change its slogan to, “It’s a new – and twisted – day”.

Congratulations to Charles Barkley, the latest WIFE of the WEEK at The Wife Hates Sportsand a cringeworthy one at that.

    Frightening is definitely one word we could use. I was thinking more along the lines of “disturbing”… but hey, to each his own.

    Enjoy The Masters… I’m jealous as hell, man. Whatever happened to us going together no matter who got tickets? Uh huh, I’ll remember that! Ha ha…oh well, maybe next year.

    The sad thing is… probably still better looking than some women on Earth.
