Curb Your Appetite

Kirstie AlleyKirstie Alley - 2004
Then                     Now

From the The New York Post:

Former "Cheers" star Kirstie Alley has a new cable comedy loosely based on her life - "Fat Actress."
"They don't give a damn how much I eat or how many men I sleep with, as long as it's on camera," says the Emmy-winning Alley.

Alley has allegedly tipped the scales at nearly 300 pounds. Friends of the obese actress, whose transformation from curvaceous TV sex siren to hefty heifer has been well publicized, say the Showtime comedy will star Alley as a fictitious version of herself, like Larry David on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

Like "Curb," "Fat Actress" will be completely improvised - there's no script - and some real-life situations that Alley has found herself in over the years will be exaggerated to make them more funny.

The two shows will even share the same executive producer, Sandy Chanely, who oversaw the first two seasons of "Curb."

At the meeting to pitch "Fat Actress" to Showtime, execs say she arrived with 24 dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It's not known if the execs were able to sucessfully wrest any of the delectible donuts away from Alley.

I've never thought she was anything that special. Even when she was younger.

I think it has something to do with the hair. I never liked the hair. There's just so...much of it.

Had she had a different haircut when she was younger I'm sure I'd have felt quite differently.

Alley's desire for attention apparently is bigger than her sense of shame. How tragic that she will wallow in this low-point for money and the pitiful drop of relevance it will gain her. But it's the only thing she has left to sell. This is like an old prostitute putting on more make-up and lowering the lights to stay in business. Can anyone say "Anna Nicole"?

We can only hope she gets on TrimSpa like Anna Nicole...
