Kathy Ireland Is Very Sneaky


Back in the day, Kathy Ireland was one of the select group of supermodels who seemed to be in every ad or on ever cover. It was always Cindy, Kathy or Christie unless you wanted a 12 year old boy and then you used Kate Moss. Anyway, Kathy left modeling and then became this successful business person who is never in the limelight unless she puts herself there.

Well, this week she decided she wanted to be in the limelight because she has a new book to sell. She also wanted to be the center of attention so she gave the photo above to People and it has now been splashed all over the internet. In the interview with People she talks about how her new book will help you look just like her. It isn't a diet book but it is full of life lessons or something like that and how when her son pointed out she looked fat how that changed her world and blah blah blah. Kathy Ireland is so smart and crafty that I wouldn't put it past her to gain some weight on purpose and then take the most unflattering pose she could. She was a supermodel after all. She knows how to look good and bad. Whatever it is, she certainly knows how to market herself which is one reason she is so rich.

I always thought she was kind of creepy looking.

But man, she looks K-Fed fat in the 'before'

umm i can slouch and push my belly out too.....

Pookie said...

wow, that's serious chunk there on her. eep. imo, she should've gone the carol alt route...doing the exact same thing but w/o exploiting her family in the process.

nancer said...

sorry, she was FAT. there's no way she could fake that pose. even her boobs are fat. so she got fat and lost weight. big deal.

Gabba Ghost said...

I am almost kind of not believe this is really Kathy in the "plumper" pic maybe she photoshopped it.

juicy said...

I can make myself look like that too, its a fun little app on my ipod. :)

Laurie said...

She's not that fat in the before. She's wearing the cardigan so you can't tell she's arching her back to make her belly stick out even more. kwim?

janine said...

Does anyone else remember a blind item where a woman planned to gain weight on purpose just to lose it for publicity's sake? Hmmm.

parissucksliterally said...

I have never thought this woman was pretty. Something about her jawline......insane body though.

IMO, no one can touch Christy Turlington. Best model ever.

janine this one :
Which tabloid-favorite actress is purposefully packing on the pudge so she can launch her own weight loss line? She's hoping to lose the first 20 pounds quickly, and cash in by following the "miracle" in a series of infomercials.

but it was an actress.....

Was she preggers in the first picture?

Kara said...

Lol. Kathy Ireland was an actress too. I know. I remember I had to sit on a plane from Bulgaria to New York (10 hour flight) where the only in flight entertainment was a David Hasselhoff/Kathy Ireland film dubbed into Bulgarian. Sweet!

Sylvia said...

Well the woman is smart that's one thing you can't take from her.

warmislandsun said...

This is just like the diet ads where they show a woman with her pregnancy weight and then state she took off 40 pounds in 3 months. That is obviously post baby weight and looks like Kathy had the money, time and trainers to take it off just like any other Hollywood type. I am just not interested in any snake oil she is selling.

jax said...

She looka lika man.

Cooper's Mom said...

jax, i totally agree. Plus, she's not 'fat' in the before picture. Sure she has a bit of a tyre but look how she's standing.. also her face hasn't filled out as it would normally if she'd gained a ton of weight. Her arms still look slender and her tits look like tits and not something that 12yr old girl should have.

"This is just like the diet ads where they show a woman with her pregnancy weight and then state she took off 40 pounds in 3 months."

Don't get me started on those! Just another reason to dislike Jilian Barberie and Tori Spelling. I wonder if Kathy can catch a football from three feet away.

Sporky said...

She has crazy eyes.

califblondy said...

I had a husband once who could do that. If a person is could at sucking it in, which I'd think a supermodel would be, it's not that hard.

She's okay, but her voice could make a dog howl.

selenakyle said...

Looks like Kathleen Turner in Picture A to me...

bionic bunny! said...

you can also see a bit of stretch mark on that belly, something i'm well acquainted with! also her nose is broader, that is either pregnant or immediate post-pregnant!

and i can stick my gut out like that too- i just can't suck it IN......

McDooks said...

She looks like she just recently gave birth in the picture on the left. Her body just yells post-partum weight in my opinion. What a scam I don't respect this.
If she really had weight troubles like so many others, then good for her she is back in shape. But I think this is exploiting "normal" baby fatness as 'weight' issues and that's just pretentious.

jax said...

she's totally a kelly preston/john travolta hybrid!!!

Coffee Maker said...

I believe Cathy Ireland when she says she feels a lot better in so many ways

Even after the weight loss, poor Kathy looks a decade older - more like mid fifties instead of mid-forties. Surprising she didn't take better care of herself with her food choices and skin care. Bad diet and too much sun make the biggest difference in looking older than you are.
