UPI News Service, 08/21/2006
Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" will change its focus a bit and help people battling weight issues as well as fashion issues.
This week's episode revolves around newlyweds Erik and Khadijah, who are described by Bravo as a couple who not only finish each other's sentences, but meals as well, the New York Daily News reported Monday.
"One of the products of their love and contentment is the bulge in their bellies," said Bravo, which airs "Queer Eye" Tuesdays at 10 p.m.Eastern.
The couple undergo a five-month regiment that results in them losing a combined 76 pounds while "Queer Eye's" stars fix up their apartment and try and motivate them to be active.
Next week's episode concentrates on actor Eric Storjohann, who now manages the Empire Fitness Club in Hoboken, N.J.
He weighed 320 pounds before starting the show and said he was tired of getting pitched the "fat guy" roles.
