Chuck joined the broadcast team for the Triple OT Heat vs. Hawks game and he did two remarkable things.

First he sort of made Reggie Miller tolerable to deal with.

Second he destroyed Weight Watchers’ credibility or at least explained the motivation for celebs to lose weight.

Here is the transcript of what he said and you can also watch the video, it is obvious Barkley didn’t know his mic was live at the time.

“I’ve been on weight watchers three months.I have to lose two pounds a week. I’m at 38 pounds now. They come and weigh me every two weeks. I ain’t never missed a weigh-in. Never going to.


I’m feeling much better. But I ain’t giving away no money… I’m not giving away no free money. I thought this was the greatest scam going— getting paid for watching sports — this Weight Watchers thing is a bigger scam.”

Basically Chuck is saying he is getting free money to do nothing except follow the script.

The reason he is losing weight has more to do with the financial incentive than anything Weight Watchers is doing.

But to the viewer it appears that Weight Watchers is miraculously shrinking Barkley, but I imagine if you offered a person a $100k to lose two pounds a day there would be a lot of skinny people running around.

Nice hustle if you are Weight Watchers.

What might be even funnier than Barkley Weight Watchers confession is how everyone goes in on the Hawks.

Poor Atlanta hasn’t been the same since Freanik left and Nene Leaks showed up.

    I love Chuck, and clicking this I was thinking this might hurt his status with WW, but then I thought…”it’s chuck”

  2. What the people don’t realize is that Charles has been working his ass off at Crossfit. That is the only way to change, get up off your A$$ people. Stop being so damn lazy. Dang!!

    Weight Watchers replaces the word “calories” with “points”.
