Carnie Wilson Fired From Diet Service for Eating Too Much Cheesecake?
By Rob Shuter Posted Nov 30th 2010 05:44PM
Carnie Wilson was a spokesperson for a food delivery service called Fresh Diet until recently when the company let the singer-actress go because it became clear she gained weight while supposedly on the diet.
"Carnie Wilson was let go as spokesperson for The Fresh Diet after losing only 19 lbs. on the program -- and then gaining it all back (plus some) after she launched her own cheesecake company," snarky Fresh Diet spokesperson Ezzy Duchman told Star.
Duchman claims the Wilson Phillips star was two-timing them, namely "promoting her cheesecakes while she was supposed to be only eating our three meals and two snacks a day."
Carnie, who went from 300 to 150 lbs. in 1999 after gastric bypass surgery but is now back up to around 230 lbs, has long struggled with her weight. That said, her history of topsy-turvy dieting didn't stop Fresh Diet from dropping the hammer, harshly, on Carnie. They've already stripped her image from the corporate website.
"She didn't stick to it, and she didn't cut weight. We had to cut ties with her," Duchman said. "It seemed that she was eating more food than just our meals. We always saw her baking on her reality show. We believe she wasn't sticking to the plan and she wasn't losing weight. If you're baking cheesecake and selling it, then you can't promote a diet company."
This isn't Carnie's only problem lately. The poor dear is also suing the Game Show Network, the home of her reality show 'Carnie Wilson: Unstapled' before it was canceled in March for $277,500 in unpaid wages.
