Charles Barkley Didn't realise He Was On TV And Called His Sweet Weight Watchers Gig A 'Scam'

Charles Barkley thought the cameras were off during commercial break of TNT’s broadcast of the Hawks-Heat game last night.

But was streaming live when Barkley went on one of his funny mini-rants and called his Weight Watchers endorsement a “scam.”

“I thought this was the greatest scam going—getting paid for watching sports—this Weight Watchers thing is a bigger scam,” he said.

To be fair, he never said that Weight Watchers itself was a scam (he talked about how he lost two pounds a week for three months). He’s saying it’s a scam that all he has to do is lose weight to get paid gobs and gobs of money.
