Christie makes two presidential primetime TV appearances

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie is a busy man.

    He’s made two primetime TV appearances in the last week, but he’d probably like to forget the one.
    The guv is set to appear on Oprah Winfrey’s new TV show this weekend, as Fox29 reports. The pair has already filmed the segment inside Christie’s home, where they chatted about the 2012 presidential race and Christie’s struggles with weight.

    His weight was also called into question this past Sunday during an appearance on “The Simpsons.” Of course, the animated Christie seen choking on a piece of chicken was a spoof. Christie didn’t lend his voice.
