Well, Sarah Ferguson’s appearance on QVC Wednesday to tout a juicer was news in Great Britain, where The Express did a story about it.
The headline from the article used a great quote from the Duchess of York’s debut on the home shopping channel: “‘I’m no longer Duchess of Pork’ says Sarah Ferguson in her new job SELLING JUICERS.”
On QVC Fergie said she went whole hog on a diet after seeing a photo of herself at nearly 200 pounds.
We blogged about her TV appearance yesterday (sorry we misspelled Duchess), selling the Fusion Xcelerator, but at that time didn’t realize some of the questions it raised.
Fergie — or perhaps more accurately, QVC host David Venable — said words to the effect that her 50-pound loss was due to a combination of factors, including the Xcelerator.
We were reminded by readers later that Fergie had previously served as a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. So how much did that diet regime contribute to her diet success, we wonder.
Then the New York Post Wednesday had a story with the headline “Trance-ing With The Stars,” about celebs using hypnosis to get them to work out. That article said that Fergie was among the “notables” who had “sung the praises of hypnosis for weight loss over the years.”
So, granted, QVC did qualify the claims about the Xcelerator’s contribution to Fergie’s weight loss, but we don’t know, it doesn’t seem quite kosher.
How much did the fancy blender, Weight Watchers and hypnosis each contribute to Fergie’s weight loss?
