Weight-loss shills are targeting Gabourey Sidibe



Tbd-GaboureySidibe031610 The Juice* has been ignoring Precious actress Gabourey Sidibe's public spat with Howard Stern about her weight because, really, we don't care a whit about it, but that doesn't mean others aren't trying to cash in. Acai Supply Inc., that company that makes weight loss products from some mystical berry, has offered Gabby a free year's worth of products if she'll give them a chance, TMZ reports. Are we allowed to write about that, or will you get mad?

After viewing the recent pictures taken of you strolling around Santa Monica earlier this week, we at have decided we can no longer sit back and keep our mouth's (sic) shut! ... Life doesn't have to be this way," a letter from the company addressed to Sidibe reads, claiming to be concerned about her health. " would like to offer Ms. Sibide a ONE YEAR FREE SUPPLY of ACAISUPPLY.Com in return for glowing testimonial after she sheds her unwanted pounds."

We have no idea what really sells, and frankly, we're too lazy to look it up. We wouldn't be surprised to hear they sponsor Stern's radio show, though.
