Before KTLA aired their interview with Marathon Goddess Julie Weiss on Sunday, KTLA weatherman Jim Castillo enthusiastically declared he had met her and that she had some "nice titties." He tries to cover that up by then saying, "uhh tennis shoes' and tries to pass it off like he was saying "tennies." Smooth.
While a part of me really does think he said "tennies", it's really hard to tell, and that Joey Tribiani "how you doin?" head nod does nothing to help his cause. As Guyism's Chris Spags points out: "I know the face of a man who’s taken in some nice titties when I see it. And Jim Castillo liked the titties he saw." It appeares that Weiss had a great sense of humor about the whole thing, tweeting that they should recreate the moment on the Late Show with David Letterman. Weiss is in the process of running 52 marathons in a year to raise money for pancreatic cancer. It appears Castillo helped her take a giant leap forward in getting the word out about her cause - whether he meant to or not!
@JimCastillo5 I apologize. The staff at Awful put you in a negative light-they have done that with other clips of TV folks. They were wrong.
@JimCastillo5 Glad to see you defending yourself so valiantly online. You must have a pretty big pair of sneakers!
Hello, please get my story correct, before you post.
Here is what I posted on Facebook and Twitter right after Julie Weiss was on our Sunday Evening Edition. I said Tennies and many people know that I said Tennies ( as in Tennis Shoes). It may have sounded like the other, but it was not. That part of you that thinks I said Tennies is 100% correct. Julie and her husband and I were just talking about her cool Tennies in the makeup room, soon after, I said Tennies on the air and then clarified that Tennies means tennis shoes.
On my Facebook page, Jim Castillo KTLA 5 Meteorologist March 10 near Los Angeles, I said nice Tennies to the awesome marathon runner Julie Weiss (as in Tennis Shoes) on air... Top of the @KTLA Evening Edition @ 8 p.m. ... I know what it sounded like:((( opps LOL I will never say nice Tennies on air again;-) Here's a pic of her and us:))) with her rockin' running shoeswww.marathongoddess.com and her husband are Rock Stars!!!
I'm so happy that all of this silly, sometimes mean postings, is calling more attention to a very important cause. Pancreatic Cancer.
Have a great week!
