Last week, on the Huffington Post, we related how newly crowned American Idol Jordin Sparks had failed to win the affections of uber-bonkers anti-obesity spokeswoman Meme Roth because--according to Roth’s vivid hallucinations--
We were prepared to write this off as idle Idol chat from a supremely deluded individual on whom Neil Cavuto, as is his wont, trained a camera.

Without further ado, we go to Roth’s website for a key piece of background:
I see staying fit as an obligation to my self and my family. Back in the 80s when I was Van Halen's 'number one fan,' I did get the chance to meet the band. Eddie Van Halen made me promise I'd never get fat. He said I looked like something out of Playboy. Talk about making a girl swoon..."Uhm...talk about making a man vomit! How old was Roth back when she was "Van Halen's number one fan?" Fifteen? Sixteen? I mean, "the 80s" were about fifteen to twenty-six years ago and Roth, by all appearances, appears to be well short of the big 4-0. If you do the math, it would appear that, in all likelihood, Roth drew her lifestyle inspiration from a leering, libidinous, pedophilic rock star who was participating in his own seamy brand of American Idolatry.
Oh, but, perhaps we're just being cynical. I mean, take a look at the image Unfogged found of Eddie Van Halen: the man is just the picture of wellness.
