Cookie Diet doctor is suing Kim Kardashian
The creator of one of those faddish cookie diets is suing Kim Kardashian for saying on her Twitter page that she's not on the diet because, hey, it doesn't work, and implying the diet's creator is a fraud. Because eating cookies to lose weight works, damn it!
According to a complaint filed in Miami-Dade County, Dr. Sanford Siegal got a letter from Kim's attorney saying that a link on the doctor's Cookie Diet Web site gave the impression Kardashian followed the diet, which didn't sit well with her. She subsequently tweeted on Oct. 29: "Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet is falsely promoting that I'm on this diet. NOT TRUE! I would never do this unhealthy diet! I do QuickTrim!" and "If this Dr. Siegal is lying about me being on this diet, what else are they lying about?"
We all know this is because of Kim having to keep up appearances for her QuickTrim contract, but Siegal had a quick retort, which landed in The Juice*'s inbox today: “Perhaps I shouldn’t presume to question Kim Kardashian’s medical opinion. After all, I’m no reality TV star ...” Siegal said. “But when I saw her derogatory comments about my diet and my character, I knew we had no choice but to take action."
We don't mean to be haters, but it's not out of the realm of possibility to posit Kim has had a cookie or two in her day. Not that that's a bad thing, but just sayin'.
