The Stark Truth: Tara Kirk On Reality Show Tonight

We’ve all had days where our clothes don’t fit us just right. With me, it usually has something to do with my waistline. They just don’t make clothes that fit a round mound of … well, you know what I mean.

It turns out Tara Kirk, the Bremerton swimmer who just missed making the Olympic team earlier this month by one one-hundredth of a second, has trouble finding clothes that fit her broad shoulders and well-defined back muscles. Hey, I’m only repeating what I’ve read, but I can image that zipping up a dress could be a bit of challenge for somebody built like Tara.

Anyway, the 25-year-old was recently ambushed by the style experts — Stacy and Clinton (they’re so well known you only need to know their first name) — on the reality TV show “What Not to Wear.”

Tara got a new wardrobe out of the deal.

The episode, taped in June, airs Friday at 9 p.m. on the TLC (The Learning Channel) network.

I know you’ll be checking it out.

FYI: staff writer Annette Griffus has posted some interesting stuff on our The Blogstroke.

And Bob Silver, the former sports editor of the Seattle Times and proud father of Olympic swimmer Emily Silver, has another must-read for those of you trying to keep track of his daughter, who’s on the mend from hand surgery.

The blog — Bainbridge to Beijing — is about Emily Silver’s long swim from a small island in Puget Sound to the 2008 Summer Olympics.
