Jenny Craig Goes On A Real Estate Diet

Jenny Craig, queen of diet plans and weight management systems, seems to have put herself on a real estate diet, listing her Rancho Sante Fe, Calif., ranch house for $8.9 million.

The new listing comes shortly after Craig, 78, put her next-door thoroughbred race horse training farm on the market for $29.9 million. As reported by Real Estalker, Rancho Santa Fe is considered one of the most expensive and exclusive zip codes in the country.
Craig, who founded her eponymous company in the early 1980s with her deceased husband Sidney in Australia, created millions marketing diet plans with the help of everyone from Kirstie Alley to Monica Lewinsky and Queen Latifah. The Craigs eventually sold their company via a private equity firm to Nestlé in a deal valued at nearly $600,000,000.

Nicknamed The Villa, Craig's 10,000-square-foot Mediterranean home was originally purchased in 1997 from the estate of Pete Rozelle, the former NFL commissioner. The 3.37-acre property boasts four bedrooms, a sizable fitness room, an outdoor pool and tennis courts, as well as a 550-square-foot two-bedroom guesthouse. Set on a private bluff with spectacular views of the Pacific, sweeping staircases, soaring ceilings, and intricate carved wood, the Villa was probably the perfect jewel for the diet diva to entertain her celebrity endorsers but may lack a certain je ne sais quoi once Craig gets rid of the horse farm.

Fat people are suckers for diet rackets and it ain't going to stop any time soon. Jenny had a fireplace in the bathroom? Straaaaange... Want to work on your next billion? Initiate a new diet and peddle it on night TV to unemployed couch potatoes.

Good for her, that she had the forethought to start her Company, why would anyone deny her success ..after all that is the American Dream ..

So who cares what she does with "her" money .. its her business ...

I do like the house ...its lovely.

Well, I must be different from most men. I'm 6'1" and I weigh about 185.
However, I like a woman with a little meat on her bones, even a little on the chubby side. So I don't know about all this crap about fat women. A big girl feels better, she looks healthy, and is usually a lot more fun in the sack. Some of these skinny chicks look like a pencil. Not sexy. Give me a nice full figured gal who is a good cook and a great partner and I will treat her like a queen.

Screw all you Fataphobics!

Jenny made her money marketing a product that was in demand, no different than the Viagra most of your husbands/boyfriends are taking.

Just because Micheal Vic beats dogs, Chris Brown beats women, are all black men bad by choice?

Not all fat people are fat by choice, so due to medications, some due to limited physically active conditions, but for most of them it's genetics.

Yes, there are lazy fat pigs in this world that just don't want to stop stuffing their faces.

Kristy admits she can't control her weight, but it is a personal issue not physical need.

Jenny made her money the right way....earning it.
Not all fat people are that way by choice.
Judge lest ye be judged

Oh, please...but it's okay for men to be FAT? I've seen so many guys who probably haven't seen their own balls in ages!
