And Here's Charles Barkley's And Weight Watchers' Official Statements On That "Scam" Business

After last night's oopsy, everyone's in clarification mode. A pair of official statements, hot off the flack presses.

Weight Watchers: "We love Charles for the same reason everyone loves Charles, he's unfiltered. We are thrilled that he is having great success and inspiring millions of men to join him. We agree that being a spokesman for Weight Watchers is a pretty great gig."

Charles Barkley: "I meant what I said, the fact that I'm dropping pounds, getting healthier and getting paid at the same time, is my definition of a great scam. The only problem is I'm going to have to use some of the money to buy a new wardrobe."


The Hawks did not officially respond to Barkley's claim that they're "just a bunch of nice guys," though they did play Ivan Johnson 21 minutes.
