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.
