K-Fed possibly eyeing weight loss reality show

K-Fed has gained a lot of weight, but that’s been true for a while now and we’ve noticed it and kind of shrugged. All the guy does is watch his kids and get paid handsomely for it so it’s not like he has to hustle to keep in shape. Britney’s ex showed up at a golf tournament yesterday, his first event appearance in over a year, and it was even more obvious that he’s ballooned. MSNBC’s The Scoop reports that Federline is working on a deal for a reality show, as has long been rumored, and that it may focus on his struggle to drop the excess weight. As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, it’s thought that Britney is ok with Kevin’s plan for a reality show and that she’s agreed to let her children be shown on camera.

Sure, Kevin Federline has had his hands full, doing the lion’s share of child rearing for his sons Preston and Jayden James (not to mention caring for his kids with ex Shar Jackson, Kori and Kaleb).

So, he might be too busy to work out. But his seemingly sudden weight gain created a huge stir when he arrived at the X-Games Celebrity Skins Classic looking much heavier than he’s ever appeared.

The talk surrounding Federline’s extra pounds doesn’t involve so much how they got there, but how he might profit from taking them off — at least in media circles where there’s buzz of a weight-loss themed reality show deal for Federline.

He didn’t respond to requests for comment on the matter, but one friend of his says it would be wrong to expect Federline to admit something is in the works before the ink on a deal is dry. “He’s not hurting for money, but he’d like to make this work. He’s not going to kill anything that might be coming together by talking about it in too much detail before he’s really sure it’s going to happen.”

I would watch this, and it’s a better idea to focus on Federline than his kids. It seems so dangerous to let children get involved in reality shows, especially those open-ended shows that could conceivably last for years, like “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” Those shows really change the dynamic in the family and disrupt home life in an insidious way that is probably hard for the participants to notice. Not to mention that the children will someday have to face the fact that their childhood moments were captured for public consumption and remain available forever. I’ve seen footage of one of the Gosselin kids crying about being constipated while Kate tells Jon to deal with it because she’s shopping for a couch. How is that kid going to feel when he’s a teenager about that incident and so many other things being made public? There are enough kids involved that some of them are going to take it badly.

Going back to Federline, he will hopefully make sure his show is limited in scope and that his children are only shown tangentially. Despite all the positive changes he’s shown in his transition to overfed house dad, he’s probably still the same douche we first go to know underneath it all. I would doubt that he’ll take measures to protect the kids if it potentially limits his fame. It’s possible he’s changed though, and maybe we’ll get to see another side to great big K-Fed on his show.

  1. OMG, he totally gained the weight on purpose. It all just made sense to me as I read the headline. For reals, I wouldn’t put it past this dude!

  2. wif says:

    As if those kids aren’t going to be screwed up enough without a reality show. And really, how much more visable do they want those kids to be? It’s just too, too much.

  3. vixenella says:

    VH1 said they are bringing back Celebrity Fit Club…I wonder if he might be trying to get on that show?

  4. princess pee says:

    Grrr. KFed shouldn’t be a celebrity. I am tired of people getting famous because they slept with someone famous. STFU, KFed. Accept that you had an extraordinary marriage, but it’s over now and you are still a human being. Be happy with your riches. Go about your life. And stay off my tv.

  5. texasmom says:

    Wow, it’s like he decided he had to grow into all those oversized clothes!!

  6. Candi says:

    I’m wondering when K-Fed is due to have his baby,seeing as he looks like he’s about to pop at any given moment.lol

    As for him doing a reality show,not surprised,he will do anything for a buck.

    After all,his “rap” career didn’t go the way he hoped it would.lol

  7. Cinderella says:

    I bet he’s totally doing this for the show. How healthy can that be.

  8. Nev says:

    It’s disgusting if this lazy fat pig is getting fat just to be on a reality show. May be the weight will no come off later. I don’t think those sweet little boys are better off with this jerk. He seem to have mental issues of his own.

  9. Iggles says:

    LOL! K-Fat.

    What a loser. Once Britney gets her act together those child support checks are gonna dry up, so I guess its smart to have a Plan B..

  10. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Despise him and every breath he steals.

  11. Ggirl says:

    Ewww! He is and always has been so gross to me. I never understood what spell he put Britney under. I guess he has some other large parts that most people aren’t aware of and that is how Britney got hooked. Just guessing because otherwise never saw the attraction there. Maybe if he actually had a REAL job he might lose a few lbs.

  12. Ned says:

    Perhaps this will help to get him off Britney’s back?

    He keeps going after her money and spares no means to get what he wants, including using the kids, the media and destabilizing her.

  13. orion70 says:

    He probably wouldn’t look as bad if he ditched that oversized bargain bin-esque white t-shirt and those sneakers.

  14. Chrissy says:

    They aired this on one of the celeb news shows a few nights back and it is on britneyexperts, Britney has not agreed to let Kevin put the kids on the show she has actually threatened him with legal action if he tries to do so.

    Britney wants her kids to grow up with the most normal life as possible and wants them to make there own decisions on if they want to be in entertainment or not

  15. Chrissy says:

    As iggles said once Brit gets her act together those child support checks will stop and that looks like it is coming, her parents are in talk of having her contravention(sp?) removed and if that happens you know Britney is going to go straight for custody of her kids in which kevin will no longer get child support , I am sure once the money stops rolling his girlfriend will go buh bye
