Gone Elsewhere

The floodgates are starting to open with the last few films of the year and plenty of award hopefuls. The Mule (58) is a hit among the geriatric set, and why not, given the director and star, Clint Eastwood, is 88? A film about a man down on his luck who ends up smuggling drugs […]

A storm is brewing: Actor and new (again) mom Kate Hudson is the new brand ambassador for Weight Watchers, and not everyone is thrilled with the company’s choice. Because Kate Hudson. View this post on Instagram So…here we go! The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I’m ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health. Why? Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine. I know that some are curious about what that means and for all you moms (wether working or not working moms) it is the most challenging thing in the world to balance kids and personal time. Let’s be honest, kids take the number one position and it’s haaaaard to make the time for yourself. I’ve been doing a lot of research and I’ve spent my life time trying all kinds of new things that are focused on health and wellness. Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight 😉 and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey. If you want to follow a more in-depth of my to-dos, @prettyhappy will be posting all kinds of fun tidbits from exercises we are loving to foods/recipes we ❤️ and meditation practices I just can’t live without 🧘‍♀️ MY GOAL: I will be shooting a film in the spring and I’m looking to shed 25lbs. I’d like to try new workouts and eat as healthy as I can. I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work everyday, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane! 🤪 I know that this sounds more like a new year resolution but after Thanksgiving and everyone thanking their health, I feel motivated to keep that up. Much love and hope everyone’s Having an amazing start to the holidays! 💋 A post shared by Kate Hudson (@katehudson) on Nov 29, 2018 at 8:24am PST That’s Hudson — at 40 — right after having her third child, daughter Rani Rose, on Oct. 2. Weight Watchers recently shortened its name to WW in hope of shifting the company’s focus, making the brand less about weight and more about wellness. And Kate Hudson — who just celebrated the fifth anniversary of her mega-successful fitness-wear company, Fabletics — is all about wellness. So what’s the problem? It pains us to say this, but movie star Hudson at the beginning of her WW journey isn’t exactly relatable — at least not in the old-school Weight Watchers way. The Instagram post above shows Hudson doing her best to look like an average forty-something postpartum woman. Unfortunately, she’s already failing at that — and it’s not her fault. We blame her ridiculous genes (Goldie Hawn is her mom, after all) for the already-slim postpartum bod. She already looks — and more important, clearly feels — far better and more empowered than most folks who are depending on WW. So when she kicks off her new gig saying she can’t wait to drop 25 pounds, it’s a just little hard to swallow. My own Polish ancestors would have already tied Hudson down and force-fed her cheese pierogies to get her strength up. The pole-dancing setup in Upton’s family room is kind of throwing us too. I mean, pole-dancing is rad! But in-home pole dancing is not something most of us can show up — or shell out — for. It feels a little like asking us to embrace Gwyneth Paltrow and her jade vagina eggs as a spokesperson for a Walmart self-care line. Is this a conversation we like having? Um, no. Generally speaking, we’re all for anything that helps to empower women to be their best, healthiest selves. But is this the reimagining of an inclusive brand into something that may make a whole lot of women feel very excluded — as if the battle is over before they’ve even begun? Because who can keep up with Kate Hudson or relate to her, um, “struggle”? Of course, Hudson is fabulous in all her forms — and plenty of fans are thrilled about the choice. One Instagrammer wrote, “This is the most real celebrity post I have seen about post baby weight. Or just self care and balancing it with life. Thank you for this @katehudson.” But also, this was a shot Upton posted 17 days after Rani Rose’s birth. Maybe it was a throwback. Who can tell? Seventeen days postpartum rarely looks like this. View this post on Instagram Work out and…pose! @nicolestuartla @fabletics #fbf #FlashbackFableticsFriday #MyFabletics 🏋️‍♀️🧘‍♀️ #CantWaitToGetBackInTheRing 💪 A post shared by Kate Hudson (@katehudson) on Oct 19, 2018 at 9:50pm PDT She’s not a realistic role model for (at the very least) most postpartum women — or perimenopausal or menopausal women for that matter. The cold, hard fact is Hudson’s social media feeds have long been full of gym-spo and workouts and similarly skinny workout buddies. “Wait what!?! She is always thin, after every child…. She shouldn’t be a WW spokesperson,” one commenter exclaimed on People’s Facebook account. Another commenter wrote, “Gir[l], You’ve Always been thin. WW could have waited til Amy Schumer had her baby she’s more realistic than Kate.” A third wrote, “[I]f they’re looking for a person normal people can relate to weight-struggle wise, this is not the one to pick. 9 months pregnant she was thinner and more fit that I’ve ever been in my entire life lol.” And the debate rages on. Here are more comments from Hudson’s Instagram feed: “I think she has skinny genes, doesn’t need WW. Breast feed for a few months and she’ll be back to her normal weight,” one commenter said. “Ya’ll [sic] gonna shame ALL moms for wanting to get back to pre-baby weight?” another commenter retorted. Fair enough and fair enough. Not everyone wants a “lifestyle” brand like WW. And historically, most people who have turned to Weight Watchers have been inspired by the brand’s spokesperson as a more relatable (body-wise) celeb: Oprah Winfrey, whose weight-loss struggle has been lifelong. But here’s Winfrey with Hudson in a FaceTime call, fully on board with the new recruit: View this post on Instagram Health and wellness is my number one and I always say that what works for me doesn’t work for everyone. I believe that we need to celebrate diversity in how each individual wants to celebrate their bodies. We aren’t all going to enjoy the same work outs, outdoor activities, foods etc. I’ve become an Ambassador for the WW family because it is the perfect community for people to live healthy their own way and I love sharing this knowledge with you all! This is not a community for people who just want to lose weight, although leading a healthy lifestyle lends itself to such, this is a community about supporting each other through a life long journey of wellness. I’m so happy to share this with everyone and I have to say, having @oprah on my call list was a dream come true! Love you O 😘 #WwAmbassador #ad #WellnessThatWorks @ww A post shared by Kate Hudson (@katehudson) on Dec 16, 2018 at 7:15pm PST We dig women. We dig wellness. We dig women hitting their fitness goals. We just don’t dig feeling duped. Are you feeling duped?
