Al Sharpton talks weight loss, hair care

Oct 11, 2011

A very slim Rev. Al Sharpton was introduced as “a legendary political activist with the best hair in the biz,” on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Tuesday.

On to discuss his new MSNBC talk show, “PoliticsNation,” the Rev happily divulged his diet details: “I don’t eat any meat. I only eat fish twice a week and I eat only vegetables and fruit and I’ve lost total…I was at my height about 305, now I’m down to 180, 185.” The crowd of women went wild.

Getting a quick chat in about politics, Williams asked the former presidential candidate if he still supported President Obama. “I think he’s done a good job. I’m with him, I think the country should stay with him and I think he’s been given a bad rap,” he replied.

And then it was on to Sharpton’s “legendary hair.” “You haven’t lost a follicle. Do I hear correctly that you go to Harlem every Friday for a roller set?” asked the host.

“Once a week I go and Betty Rivers does my hair and it’s mine, this is no weave,” Sharpton explained before Williams presented him with an enormous purple shower cap.
