Kirstie Alley has good Photoshop skills, but questionable judgment when it comes to pointing out her weight issues. She posted this pic of her head Photoshopped onto a fat woman’s body on Twitter, cracking jokes about drinking beer and whether her “butt looks big.” I can appreciate that she’s a celeb willing to poke fun at herself. And I don’t blame her for having body image issues; lots of us do. But poking fun at her yo-yo dieting/weight loss, which is clearly a very big deal to her and has been for years, vis-a-vis another, obese woman’s body just makes me uncomfortable. That’s a real person with feelings (and, apparently, a chain bikini)! Not cool, Kirstie. [Twitter.com/KirstieAlley]
Blindsided by the fact that Kirstie Alley apparently had emotional affairs with both Patrick Swayze and John Travolta? The Huffington Post lists five more celebrity romances that flew surprisingly under the radar:
- Jermaine Jackson (we’re sorry, Jacksun) reportedly had an affair with Whitney Houston in the 1980s. He was married at the time, but had feelings for her until her death. Read more…
It’s no surprise Scientology has taken a beating with the Tom Cruise divorce debacle but is the secretive religion looking to update its image with a younger, hotter actor, someone along the lines of Robert Pattinson? Scientology insiders say Kirstie Alley has been hanging with her downtrodden neighbor and comforting him ever since Kristen Stewart smashed his heart into countless pieces and is cajoling him with tales of being the next Tom Cruise or John Travolta. Run Robert run!
An eyewitness told the National Enquirer that Kirstie’s white Lexus was parked outside Rob’s house on July 25 – around the time he reportedly dumped Kristen. The car eventually left later that afternoon and went straight to Scientology’s Celebrity Centre in Hollywood. Read more…
“I’m thinking ugly men might be the solution … I’m talking about butt ugly. Because I go for really handsome men and I think butt ugly would be appreciative.”
–Kirstie Alley on what kind of man she’s looking to fall in love with. Obviously she was joking when she told Ellen DeGeneres about her plan to date butt ugly guys, but she may be on to something. You should always pick the guy who thinks you’re a goddess. He trumps the really handsome man every time. And it’s totally plausible that you will find him hot too. [People]
“Fat sex, skinny sex, if you love the way you look and you love your body, then it doesn’t matter the sex is gonna be good. Because I’ve seen celebrities that have sex tapes and they are skinny and they are boring as hell. I got a girlfriend pushing 250 and she is a good time … You can get freaky at any size and it can be good.”
–Sherri Shepherd, the anti-Kirstie Alley, on why weight doesn’t matter if you have a positive body image. Alley had previously made a comment that she wanted to slim down because she hated having “fat sex.”
Have you ever experienced “fat sex”? Kirstie Alley has. The actress, who recently lost 100 pounds, admitted she didn’t exactly lose weight for health reasons.
“I didn’t like the way I looked, and I didn’t want to have fat sex!” She told People magazine in an interview.
Fat sex? Is that just sex between two fat people? Sex wherein one participant is fat? Or does “fat sex” describe the actual experience? Keep reading »
Weight loss programs will use all kinds of tricks and techniques to entice you to buy in — from discounts and free food to real life testimonials. Lately, the weight loss market has been flooded with a glut of famous faces shilling for one company or another, promising that by sticking with the program customers can lose 20, 30 or 40 pounds.
But what happens when the celebrity spokesperson doesn’t lose, but gain? Or loses the weight, only to yo-yo back up to their pre-program weight?

“I was offered a Broadway play. I’m not going to do it, because my friends said, `Don’t do one if you can’t get a Tony!’ But I am tempted … [In the past, lifts] would have freaked me out. I have this bizarre thing with height. I’m 5 foot 8, and I have this phobia. When I did ‘Look Who’s Talking’ with John Travolta, I weighed 114 pounds, and the director goes, `John, pick her up and take her to the bedroom.’ I’m like, no! I’m 5 feet 8! It’s going to be too much. I only think 5 foot 1 girls can fly around.”
—Kirstie Alley reveals that after “Dancing with the Stars” wraps, she may well be headed to the stage. Kirstie, we’d love to see you on the Great White Way.

Kirstie is the long shot, but I am totally proud of her for facing her fear and doing so many freaking lifts in her routine last night. No one puts Kirstie in the corner.

Last week, Kirstie Alley
and her partner Maksim took a spill
during their routine on “Dancing With The Stars
“—and got better comments from the judges than ever for standing back up and continuing. Then last night, while doing their waltz, Kirstie lost a shoe and had to take a moment on the floor to fix it. “I’m not doing a sitcom. I’m actually doing a dancing show! I’m tired of having to recover,” Kirstie said. “I would just like to do something right. I don’t feel like I’m jinxed, but I feel like I need to get my s**t together… First week, we were the people who danced really well. And somehow along we’ve become the freak show.” Well, this could be an interesting new strategy. [EW
