TMZ talked to representatives from the two companies who said Kim Kardashian, although a reality star, "isn't real enough". Medifast says they aren't even looking for a celebrity endorsement.
Jenny Craig says they're going to continue working with Mariah Carey, who lost her pregnancy weight, around 30 pounds, after endorsing JC in July 2011.
Kim K, 32, endorsed QuickTrim last year, but there hasn't been any word on if she's going to continue that deal, or if she's even looking to sign a post-pregnancy weight loss deal in the coming months.
Kardashian and her boyfriend rapper Kanye West announced they were pregnant at West's concert Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Dec. 30. Kim took to her blog the next day to confirm the news.
Things are beginning to heat up for Kardashian, however, since she's still married to Kris Humphries. The couple filed for divorce in October 2011 after only 73 days. Due to disagreements over the marriage and how it should end, Kim and Kris have been in a divorce standstill for over a year. Humphries wants an anullment, and Kardashian isn't giving in.
