Michigan Politician Talks To TMZ About Supermodel Niece Kate Upton

KALAMAZOO (CBS Detroit) Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about Kate Upton — and really, what could be left to the imagination after that bikini? — something new comes to light.

Turns out, Upton’s uncle is an honest-to-G0d civic leader, and a Republican to boot, and her family founded the Whirlpool company more than 100 years ago.

Celebrity gossip website TMZ caught state Rep. Fred Upton, R-6th District, and asked if the bikini model hurts or helps the family brand. Upton stood by his family.

“She’s a nice gal, she’s a great gal,” he said.
