This just in….
Spoke with Family Leisure head Andy Prefontaine this a,m. in Asia. Family Leisure is the name of the biz formerly known as Watson’s and Prefontaine still runs it. He’s also the stepfather of Jennifer Eichler aka the Watson’s Girl.
Prefontaine gave me Jennifer’s cell number – she’s 30-something, divorced, single and no longer shilling for the company. And I have a call into her.
Meanwhile, allow me to share what Metromix Indianapolis laid down in an interview with Eichler last month.
Don’t remember the Watson’s Girl?
"Eichler was the bubbly Midwestern beauty who offered great deals on hot tubs and tanning beds starting around 1994," Metromix writes. "In one memorable spot, she whips off a trench to reveal a black bikini and commodious young breasts: ‘it’s gonna be hot, and you’re gonna need a pool!’ "
After getting married, having a couple of kids, getting divorced and entering her 30s, Prefontaine opted to change the company name and leave Jennifer out of the saucy spots.
Turns out she’s found a new TV sugar daddy…
Eichler’s’s had her "commodius young breasts" resurrected by Eppley Plastic Surgery and is showing them off to homies in local TV spots.
"For a few years after her Watson’s Girl stint, Eichler, now 33, laid low, while still appearing at charity events and in social columns," Metyromix reports. "Now, the divorced, stay-at-home mom is back in the spotlight. On June 15, she’ll host the first episode of her new weekly podcast, “Jennerally Speaking” — which she describes as ‘Sex and the City’ meets ‘Entourage’ — recorded live at 10 p.m. Wednesdays at Casler’s Bar and Grill in Geist. A promo on her YouTube channel reveals a sultry Eichler in bed, cloaked in white sheets. ‘We’re going to be talking about everything,’ she coos. ‘Maybe even things that have happened in my bed.’ ”
Speaking of Jennifer’s personal life, the latest?
"Since I’ve been divorced, I’ve spent most of my time lately taking care of my kids and reacquainting myself with being single," she says.
