Ever wonder what Charles Barkley looks like in drag?
No worries, we have a pic of it right here!
Ch-ch-check it out! He did it for a new Weight Watchers campaign, which not only has the highest weight-loss success rate, but also worked for Charles personally.
Here's what he says in the interesting ad:
“Diet is not a man’s word because we don’t like to diet—we like to eat. Like a lot of athletes, I’ve gained weight since I’ve retired. But, I don’t want to be a fat, old man taking lots of pills. Weight Watchers is helping me change my lifestyle and learn how to make smarter eating choices anywhere I am.”
And obviously it's working!
He's lost MORE than 40 pounds!
INcredible! If he can do it, so can you!!
If there was one thing we have NEVER been worried about, it would be surviving March Madness.
Charles Barkley disagrees. He wants you to be prepared!
He's actually talking about making sure you don't gain all that hard-lost weight back! Charles has actually lost a lot of weight doing Weight Watchers, so he knows what the's talking about — he looks fab!
Check out his top tips on how to survive!
We aren't usually huge fans when sports players host SNL, but on his third time at the helm, Charles Barkley actually gave us one of the funnier monologues that we've seen a while!
He seemed to be really comfortable taking shots at himself, and we like to see that:
Good job, Charles!
The basketball great has been on Weight Watchers for 10 weeks and he's steadily getting to his goal.
Charles Barkley admitted he was 350 lbs. before he started the program.
Now, he has lost 27 lbs after losing 14 lbs before Weight Watchers.
Barkley says that he feels uplifted and has more energy now that he's losing weight.
However, he did say he was hesistant towards veggies.
He states the following:
Charles Barkley is not on good terms with Miami!
While sitting at a round table with other sports reporters, Heat fans started chanting jeers at Barkley, and in the heat of things Barkley decided to give them the double bird!
The fans seemed to like it, so no harm done!
Rick Welts, CEO of the Phoenix Suns, just came out to the public as a gay man, and now everyone is discussing homosexuality in the NBA.
There is certainly a stigma against it right now, but Charles Barkley thinks there’s no reason for it.
“I really like ESPN. They do a great job. But like once every two or three months, they bring all these people on there, and they tell me how me and my team are going to respond to a gay guy. First of all, every player has played with gay guys. It bothers me when I hear these reporters and jocks get on TV and say: ‘Oh, no guy can come out in a team sport. These guys would go crazy.’ First of all, quit telling me what I think. I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play.”
He continued, addressing gay men in the locker room:
“A guy is never going to put himself in that situation in a professional locker room. It never crossed my mind, and I never felt any different about the guy. They’re not going to do anything in the locker room. Doesn’t work like that.”
Barkley made it a point to emphasize that anyone who says they’ve never played with a gay guy is just being ignorant.
“Society discriminates against gay people. They always try to make it like jocks discriminate against gay people. I’ve been a big proponent of gay marriage for a long time, because as a black person, I can’t be in for any form of discrimination at all. We gossiped behind each other’s back before; I’ll be the first to admit that. The first people who whine and complain is them Bible-thumpers, who are supposed to be non-judgmental, who rail against them.[…] I don’t worry about what other people do.”
We heart Charles Barkley so much right now! Much love!!
