Kevin Federline might not have keep hustling for that elusive reality show deal, selling kids’ clothes, and making deals with Britney for ever-increasing amounts of custody dough. According to a source quoted with In Touch, he’s been offered a deal to be a spokesperson for NutriSystem’s men’s program:
Since last year, Kevin Federline has packed on the pounds — one pal estimates that the former backup dancer has gained more than 40 — and his new job may be to shed that fat. According to another friend, K-Fed, 31, has been offered a deal with NutriSystem to promote its Men’s Plan program. “Kevin wants to lose weight, and he needs to make money,” the friend says. “He’s seriously thinking it over.” However, Kevin’s rep denies that he’s going to work for NutriSystem. K-Fed could be in good company. Former football star Dan Marino, Tony Orlando and Larry the Cable Guy have been spokesmen for NutriSystem.

K-Fed did that pretty funny Nationwide Insurance commercial (link leads to video) poking fun at himself that aired during the Superbowl two years ago and featured him working at a fast food restaurant while dreaming of rap superstardom. Back then his divorce was news and he was more relevant. He’s really redeemed himself since though by stepping up and being a good father to his boys during Britney’s breakdown. You could see him being an effective spokesperson in these those type of weight loss commercials that show him before and after. I don’t want K-Fed to get semi-hot again, however. He seems kind of tame with some extra pounds, but it’s like there’s still a raging douche under there just hoping to get out and break out the bling.
In late 2006 before Britney surprised K-Fed with divorce papers he bragged to Salon magazine about his jewelry, shoes and watches. When the journalist pointed out to K-Fed that the watch he was wearing was “worth more money than I’ve made in the last five years,” K-Fed answered “That’s my baby. Whenever I made some money that’s the first thing I went and bought…. My watch game is ridiculous… I’m going to go out and get some more.” At that point he was driving a custom-detailed Ferrari worth a quarter of a million, and a Maserti worth six figures. He was possibly leasing the Maserti, but it’s still outrageous.
K-Fed’s plans for accumulating more luxury watches were dashed when Britney filed for divorce in November, 2006 and his cash got cut off. His priorities have obviously changed since, but I can’t help associate a slim K-Fed with a douchier K-Fed.
