Carnie Wilson Sacked For Not Losing Weight


The American singer Carnie Wilson is no longer the spokes-model for the healthy food service 'The Fresh Diet' after the company severed ties with her for not losing enough weight, reports Star Magazine. The Wilson Phillips star underwent gastric bypass surgery in 1999 and lost a vast amount of weight, however, after falling pregnant with daughters 'Lola' and 'Luciana', she reached 212 pounds.
Wilson signed up to be the face of the food-delivery service, however, on 10th November 2010 the contract was scrapped following allegations that Wilson had been promoting her own brand of cheesecake while simultaneously trying to help others lose weight. The singer's representatives insist that the contract between the two parties was up, but Wilson has been accused of breaking the rules of the agreement by only losing 19 pounds. Ezzy Duchman, publicist for The Fresh Diet, said, "Carnie was promoting her cheesecakes while she was supposed to be only eating our three meals and two snacks a day", before adding, "She didn't stick to it, and she didn't lose weight. We had to cut ties with her".
The news comes as Wilson's band Wilson Phillips released a festive album entitled 'Christmas in Harmony' on 12th October 2010.
