Pregnant Kim Kardashian Is Not “Real” Enough for Weight Loss Companies
Nobody wants her as spokesperson because she would not boost sales, says report
Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her first child but, if she’s looking to secure a weight loss deal as fast as possible to kick off after she gives birth, she’s totally barking up the wrong tree, various reports indicate.In recent years, it’s become somewhat of a tradition to hear that pregnant female celebrities sign deals with major weight loss companies whose products they start endorsing right after giving birth.
According to at least two media outlets, Kim Kardashian won’t be among them.
The Huffington Post, for one, writes that the reality star is dying to land a deal like Jessica Simpson’s with Weight Watchers but she’s devastated that no one wants to have her as spokesperson.
“Kim would love to get a paid gig like Jessica, but so far no one is interested. She plans to stay healthy during her pregnancy, but even so will gain baby weight that she would love to be paid to lose,” an insider says.
Weight Watchers have already said that they plan on sticking with Simpson even though she’s now pregnant with her second child and, naturally, off the program until the baby comes.
As it turns out, they’re not the only ones to steer clear of Kim.
“Reps for Jenny Craig and Medifast tell TMZ they won't be helping Kim K shed her post-baby weight – and their reason, ironically enough, is the reality TV star isn't real enough,” TMZ writes.
Jenny, for example, will focus on “real results for real women” this year, and will continue the partnership with Mariah Carey to achieve this.
However, as they say, one man’s loss is another man’s gain. Even if these companies don’t want Kim to endorse their programs, it’s not like she’s at home wringing her hands in despair: in a post on her official blog, Kim reveals she’s already working with Tracy Anderson to stay in shape.
After she gives birth, she will probably go back on QuickTrim, which she’d been promoting for several years now.
