Did Bill Clinton really tell Hillary that she needs to go to a “fat farm”?


Now let me just say at the beginning that I found this National Enquirer story to be both extremely insulting, as well as genuinely amusing. Is it sexist? Sure. But it’s also kind of funny. According to the Enquirer, Hillary Clinton has been stress eating like a madwoman, and she’s put on quite a bit of weight just in the past five months or so. I’m putting photos up of Hillary in the past two months, and while it does look like she’s put on a little weight, it’s not the “40 pounds in 4 months” that the Enquirer claims. My guess is 15-20 pounds in 4 months. Stress eating is a bitch, and I can’t even imagine Hillary’s stress level as Secretary of State. So I’m giving her a pass, in general, one woman to another. Hillary, if you want to come over for some cookies, cream pies and cocktails, I’m here. If anything, the idea that Hillary is a stress eater who downs cream pies in between pouring over diplomatic cables makes me like her even more. But the truly funny part comes when the Enquirer tries to convince us that Bill Clinton doesn’t like Hillary’s weight gain. Um, who buys that? Bubba loves chubby girls. Always has, always will.

Super-busy HILLARY CLINTON has packed on 40 extra pounds – and she blew up at former tubby hubby when BILL suggested that she check into a fat farm!

In the past four months, the secretary of state has ballooned to a hefty 171 pounds while criss-crossing the globe on diplomatic missions and dealing with the WikiLeaks scandal, sources say. The 63-year-old politician has been binge eating instead of exercising, and ex-president Bill made the mistake of telling his 5-foot-7 wife that she was looking chunky, insiders say.

“With her nonstop workload, Hillary has ditched her regular gym schedule. She’s been eating rich, fatty foods while dining with heads of state around the globe – and it’s no wonder she’s gained 40 pounds in the last four months. Now she’s hit an all-time personal high of 171 pounds,” a Clinton friend told The ENQUIRER.

“Poor Hillary feels terrible about the way she looks, but she is so busy she isn’t making time for her own needs.”

Making things even worse is her husband of 35 years – who’s battled his own weight woes until becoming thinner recently. Bill pointed out that she needed to do something, sources say.

“When Hillary asked him how she looked, he told her, ‘You’re huge! You need to go to a fat farm!’ Then he made things worse by saying treadmills and stair climbers were fun,” a pal told The ENQUIRER. “Hillary exploded! She doesn’t need anyone saying she needs to go to a fat farm!”

Pals say Hillary’s biggest problem is her hectic travel schedule. Since July, she’s traveled to Poland, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Belgium, VietNam, Cambodia, and many more. She’s also been under tremendous pressure over the damage done to the State Department by the WikiLeaks scandal.

“It’s caused her to do something she’s seldom done – binge eating,” said a friend. “In weak moments, Hillary has been staying up late nursing her stresses by pounding down rich desserts like cream pies, doughnuts, and ice cream sundaes with whipped cream. Bill was a champion junk food eater in the old days, but since his heart surgeries, he’s watched his diet and he’s concerned about Hillary’s weight gain.”

A Clinton friend adds: “Bill was never more proud of the way Hillary looked than when they danced the night away at their daughter Chelsea’s wedding in July. But since then, Hillary has piled on the pounds and doesn’t need reminding how out of shape she is. She will decide when she can find the time to go to a high-end spa or a fat farm, not Bill. But it will be soon – Bill is determined to help her get her weight under control and has convinced her it’s for her own good.”

Yeah. Bubba never told Hillary that she needed to go to a fat farm. First of all, if he did say that, Hillary would smack the crap out of him. Second of all, he didn’t say it. He probably told her she never looked better. As I said, Bubba loves “a little extra” on his women. Oh, and my third point – I kind of don’t buy that Hillary and Bubba even spend that much time together any more. Why would Bubba be monitoring Hillary’s weight when he’s probably flying all over on party jets with hookers? Just a thought.

Also… if Hillary is concerned about this, while she comes over for pies, cocktails and cookies, I’m going to share my wisdom about never wearing horizontal stripes.

Clinton refused to comment on specific reports included in the release of documents but said the disclosure of the sensitve cables was harmful to U.S. foreing policy and that the U.S. would take aggressive steps to hold accountable those responsible for the release.

    Can’t help but love me some Bubba. He is just irresistible. And I love that he is a chubby chaser.

  2. guesty says:

    over the years, she’s gone from meh to bad to worse in the looks department.

  3. Tess says:

    A quibble with you, Kaiser.

    Hillary Clinton would absolutely NOT slap the crap out of Bill no matter what he said or did.

    Look at history. She’s all talk, stern talk, angry talk, bluster bluster bluster. But that’s all she’s got. Yada Yada yada….adds up to nothing.

  4. Messenger says:

    I just love the Clintons. I am so happy that Hilary has come into her own as she has been a super-support-system to her husband and now, he returns in kind. They are a great team. Extra poundage is often the out-manifestation of something we have failed to process internally, so it is understandable that, if Hil is so busy she hasn’t had time to do mental house cleaning, she might have gained a few. IMO one of the benefits of having a SO is that they point out the places you might be glossing over (in the nicest way of course) so that you are conscious of them. If this story has a grain of truth, I am sure Bil told Hil in the nicest possible way.

  5. bros says:

    i think its probably just age, and having zero time to work out. you have to work out very hard as a woman in your fifties to maintain weight, let alone lose it. who the F cares anyway. if this were a man we wouldnt be talking about it at all.

  6. heb says:

    I love how Chelsea told Bill he had to lose 15 lbs for her wedding but didn’t dare say anything to HIllary about her weight, lol

  7. Donna Wingfield says:

    Love them both.

  8. Kiki says:

    There is no way Hillary is 5’7″… No way!

  9. Lynda says:

    Being overweight never impacts a person’s ability to be brilliant and successful. And Bill has not always been svelte either. Leave her alone.

  10. Love him, love her. But he looks like crap thin.

  11. Shelley says:

    I agree with your third point, Kaiser: I think these two have been PR-married-only for decades, actually, and neither know nor care anything about one another, let alone care enough to comment on one another’s physiques. She has stayed with him for the basest and crassest PR/career reasons only and is a horrible ‘role model’ for young women. And she’s had so much plastic surgery, she’s literally unrecognizable from her original appearance. I see a pair of very creepy freaks when I look at them.

  12. Jackson says:

    IDK. I give her a pass. And if she made better choices in what she wears I doubt anyone would have noticed the weight gain. But, again, I give her a pass – she’s not some vapid famewhore doing crack to stay skinny. She’s got more important things to think about – like, you know, world peace and stuff.

  13. Jewbitch says:

    I think she needs to cut her hair short again. And stop wearing the ugly suits. Other than that, I think she’s fine.

  14. mii says:

    Hillary used to be beautiful, I mean, you don’t have to like her to realize that she was pretty…
    But she has aged badly, probably due to genetics & her taking everything so seriously. I think that she should quit her job (WHY is she working for Obama? really?!) and enjoy her family.

  15. kim says:

    I am not a Hillary Clinton fan, BUT, her life seems to be a source of constant stress…..from Bill to all she has to put up with her job….Give the poor woman a break! (can’t believe I said that!)

  16. Eleonor says:

    Did she have an eye-lift?

  17. gee_gee says:

    Hillary still looks like herself. Bless her. Never change, Hil.

  18. fanny says:

    She is a beautiful woman despite a couple of goofy hairdos and extra weight. If it is true, this doesn’t sound like a healthy weight gain for her and Bill is rightly concerned.

  19. Marjalane says:

    Even if Bill Clinton had the balls to tell Hillary she was packing on the pounds- which he doesn’t- Hillary would laugh right back in his face. There is NO doubt who wears the pants in that family. I think the only thing those two have in common anymore is Chelsea and a huge contempt for the current occupant of the White House! I think the bigger problem here is her new affection for headbands and butterfly clips! Hill needs to get herself to a good hairstylist STAT!

  20. Lala11_7 says:

    @Mia…Hillary isn’t WORKING for Obama (really)…she is working for you…and HER country…and that’s what she’s always done…I mean…REALLY!!!

    Interesting story…don’t believe a WORD!!! She just needs a new stylist…and her hairdresser needs a REAL GOOD TALKING TO!!!

  21. Rita says:

    I do not care for her personally but she’s an accomplished woman in a rough and tumble world so I give her much credit.

  22. LT says:

    I’m a bad stress eater so I feel her pain!

  23. LolaBella says:

    She used to have much better style than what we’ve seen recently.

    She needs to get a flattering haircut and ALWAYS wear her hair down and go back to wearing her power pantsuits – they totally worked for her.

    No matter what she does she can’t help that she is not aging well and the extra weight shows in her face – it is very jowly.

    I still love her; she’s a strong, intelligent, hardworking woman.

  24. mia says:

    CIdee, I can’t believe there are still women who fawn over men who are known to use and abuse women. Geez, women haven’t gained any ground on being self respecting and that excludes Sandra Bullock.
    Hillary shouldn’t try to look like she is 25 years old. Leave her alone on the looks. Dang, y’all!

  25. Isabel says:

    WHO the F*CK put her in horizontal stripes?!!?!?

    I think she’s perfectly fine for a woman of her age. Good Lord, she’s the Secretary of State! She has some other shit to worry about than calorie counting.

    Also, Bubba is aging like craaaaaaaaaaaaap.

  26. Leticia says:

    I’m not a Clinton fan at all, but I have to defend her regarding her appearance. Aside from one of the photos above with her hair in clippy, she usually looks attractive, well groomed, and her hair is usually well coiffed. She has aged gracefully and I think that she looks better in her later years than back when he was governor of AK.

    I don’t believe that he would ever criticize her regarding her appearance. I don’t think her physical appearance is important to him.

  27. malachais says:

    IMO I do not think she’s had any plastic surgery. Frankly she reminds me of my old granny as far as aging is concerned. She seems very plain style-wise but likes bright colors of the not-so-flattering kind. I think Hilary would look a lot better with a few facials and some teeth whitening. Those very basic improvements would make her look a lot better. She just looks worn out – I don’t blame her though because her position is demanding.

  28. REALIST says:

    I am amazed that a woman her age (I am only saying woman because I am one, so I can identify more accurately with the experience) can travel through all those time zones and eat all that strange food and still function-physically and mentally. I would be dead.
    BTW, Kaiser, did you go the extra mile to pick the shots that the Monicas of the world would adore?

  29. hairball says:

    Isn’t she like her in her early 60’s? She looks absolutely fine. Aging badly? Take a look around at others in their 60’s.

    I have spent my lifetime staring at fat, saggy, jowl jingling, balding white male leaders and it was never mentioned to them how unappealing they look.

  30. Mairead says:

    EDIT: +1 internets for you hairball!

    Jesus the misogyny from some of you women is disgraceful. And people wonder why women are so poorly represented in politics and in big business! What in the name of all that is sacred has what she wears got to do with her work?

  31. slymm27 says:

    bubba could not care less what hillary looks like. They have not seen each other naked in over a decade. I mean 35yrs, is damn long, and bubba has so many pieces on the side…..

  32. REALIST says:

    Weird-look at the first pic of Hillary in profile-it completely reminds me of Elizabeth Edwards!
    Both strong, intelligent, hardworking women-I’ll stop there. May Elizabeth rest in peace and may Hillary have a long and healthy (excess weight IS a health problem, Bill can attest to that) life so she can continue her good works and carry on in the tradition of women like her and Elizabeth.
    As for the marriage, it must be open (between them-I’m sure that was a Monica after-effect). They love their daughter very much (ooooh, and imagine the grandkids!) and are truly one in the work they do with their lives. People stay married for much less virtuous reasons.

  33. Anonymous says:

    I doubt Bill much cares at this point. He probably has other lady friends in his life.

  34. belle epoch says:

    “Being overweight never impacts a person’s ability to be brilliant and successful.”

    Bless you, #9!

    I’m a writer, and somewhere along the line it became a rule that writers are supposed to look fabulous. Unfortunately I have a lot of medical issues and I’m too fat. When I posted my picture on Amazon, someone asked me to take it down so it would not affect book sales! I don’t look like a burn victim – I’m just an overweight 50 year old lady, and it does not affect my BRAIN. I’m never going to look like the Black Swan – why does it matter?

  35. K-love says:

    Firt time I’ve seen her in a dress. The rest don’t matter. She proably don’t have the time nor occassion to exercise or diet. When she gets tired of how she looks she will do something about it. ain’t nobody business but hers.

  36. JRenee says:

    Ditch the red lipstick and those of similar hues, stay away from the strips and hair clips and she will be fine. She seems to disciplined to allow herself to stay off track for too long.

  37. SoulLovah says:

    Since when did 171=HUGE??? The f*** outta here!

  38. Kiska says:

    I really don’t see her as fat. Really. Media feeds us these images of women who are actually malnourished. Hilary is what a healthy woman looks like and kudos for her not being botoxed to death.
    As well, I can’t see Bill telling his wife that she is fat. That would be like the pot calling the kettle black. He’s had issues with weight and probably struggles more with it than his wife.

  39. JM says:

    No way would Bill tell her to go to a “fat farm”. At most – a big if- he would gently encourage her to take care of herself b/c look what being a fatty did to him: heart bypass or whatever. And yay – how nice to see an older woman who gets by on her brains not her looks.

    (That said . . . the hair clip had to be one of the funniest moments of 2010 for me. Classic.)

    They’re clearly not doing the no-no together, but they are a comfortable couple who does love each other, albeit it more as best friends than lovers. It happens!

  40. Justaposter says:

    Do you really think that Bill would still be alive and kicking if he said that?

  41. Bodhi says:

    Ditto Mairead! Jay-sus!

    If she had any plastic surgery at all (which I rather doubt) it was very tasteful. My mom is around the same age & has had some very minor tweaks (chin lift, eye lift for medical reasons) & I don’t begrudge her any of it. Nor would I begrudge Hil anything. She is an amazing woman who has accomplished more than most people her age. Go Hil!!

  42. original kate says:

    hillary is a politician, not a damn supermodel, and she looks fine for a 60 something year old woman. this would not even be a story if hillary were a man. when will the enquirer run a story about newt gingrich being a big fat tub of lard, or lindsay graham needing a facelift?

  43. beebeedoom says:

    She looks perfectly fine. Oh wait I forgot, in this misogynistic world women must keep a job, be the perfect homemaker, and never leave the house without a full face of make-up. Also, adoring wife and mother yadda yadda … whatever.

  44. Kloops says:

    She looks fine, but I do think she could styled better.

  45. Raven says:

    This story is laughable. The woman has been through 2 presidential campaigns of her husband’s, two senate runs and one presidential campaign of her own. Wikileaks is nothing compared to those and the state dept came off looking pretty good, from what I’ve read. Her problem is her hectic schedule and being all over the globe. She has lost the time to exercise, which helped her keep her weight under control.

    I think it is possible that Bill may have said something to her and if the Enquirer staff were not complete morons they’d have put this together themselves. He’s not concerned about her looks, but he’s probably concerned about her health. After 2 heart surgeries himself, that scared him into going vegan, he’s probably concerned that something similar could happen to her. I think that, while they may not see each other often, they are probably constantly in touch.

  46. BReed says:

    He could use some work on that big red nose of his. Fat farm? Her money would be better spent in a hair salon. I mean just LOOK at that hair!

  47. slymm27 says:

    just because she is a 60 year old woman, does not mean she should wear such terrible outfits. She needs to dress right, and no she is not fat, just dressed badly. And bubba has not seen her naked in years, so he probably told her that just because he is concerned for her health.

  48. Sandy says:

    I love the plastic clip on top of her head. They have ALOT of money. She may not care, but I personally cannot imagine being wealthy and not spending some of it on appearance. Especially if you work in the public eye.

  49. Paula says:

    Guesty wrote in comment #2:

    “over the years, she’s gone from meh to bad to worse in the looks department.”

    Happens to most of us who either do not employ skilled plastic surgeons with the right touch or who do not have a midlife makeover and lose 40 pounds. That unwashed hair pulled up behind the head was a collosal mistake she never repeated and other than a few unflattering dress choices (who among us hasn’t?), she looks fine for a woman in her 60s.

    She’s a government official and former presidential candidate. If people want to criticize her politics, that’s fine, but I’ve never understood those who bash her looks. Some of her predecessors like Madeleine Albright, Lawrence Eagleburger, and George Schultz weren’t hotties or stylish dressers, either.

  50. Ann says:

    Jeebus! No one gives male politicians shit over their physical appearance, so knock it off, y’all.

    Show some support for a tough & smart woman politician. Her looks are irrelevant for her job, she’s not running for America’s next Supermodel!

  51. crtb says:

    I doubt he said it like that.

  52. sage says:

    Anyone care to address that big ole bulbous nose? Looks like Billy boy is hittin the bottle pretty hard these days. Teddy Kennedy #2… INCOMING!

    WTH happened to Bill’s nose? due to lying?
    leave the woman alone. she got tons of work for Americans and shes super Busy unlike Obama.

  56. Cheyenne says:

    REALIST: I am amazed that a woman her age can travel through all those time zones and eat all that strange food and still function-physically and mentally.
    The “strange food” can be delicious. The jet lag is godawful. I traveled to southeast Asia ten years ago. 21 hours through 13 times zones almost wiped me out. But oh man, that scrumptious food!

    Mary: just fyi, it’s poring over, not pouring over
    One of my biggest grammatical pet peeves.

  57. Crash2GO2 says:

    Well, his nose needs to go to a bulbous farm.

  58. Gemini49 says:

    Bill’s got a lot of nerve talking smack about his wife’s weight …. he’s replaced his real nose with a CLOWN NOSE …. just sayin’
