From Larry Brown Sports:

Charles Barkley is a loose cannon who delivers some of the most biting criticism in sports, but the former NBA All-Star also has a softer side. Barkley freely admits that he gets his eyebrows waxed. Anytime he mentions on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” that he gets his eyebrows waxed, co-host Kenny Smith mocks him.

Barkley was actually away from TNT’s Atlanta studios and in Phoenix to provide color commentary during Thursday’s Phoenix Suns-Los Angeles Clippers game when the subject of his waxed eyebrows came up.

“See, Kenny (Smith) hates on me because I’ve been getting my eyebrows waxed,” Barkley said during the telecast. “Ain’t no shame in my game! I get my eyebrows done!” he stated proudly.

“Just for the record, I get other things waxed too. I do,” said Barkley. “I get other things waxed.”

Barkley says he gets his eyebrows waxed at the same place where he gets his manicure and pedicure, or “mani and pedi” as he called it.

When the game went to halftime, the rest of the crew was prepared to pounce on Barkley for his admission.

Shaq used duct tape to pretend like he was waxing his eyebrows; Chris Webber put on some lip gloss; and Smith showed off his nails. The result was a hilarious couple of minutes of television that had viewers rolling in laughter.

5 Comments:
  • So the hell what?
  • Whenever I hear of a guy getting a part of his body waxed it always reminds me of the movie "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" when he got his chest waxed.
  • It's great that these guys can have so much fun.
  • I love Charles Barkley's attitude. I don't always agree with him, but he is so much fun to watch. He has no shame in his gave or otherwise.
