Here We Go Again . . .

Kirstie is working out hard with DWTS and she's dropped a few dress sizes. 

Good for you Kirstie!

She says:  ". . . the other thing that’s really more significant to me — I mean, I love the whittling, I like being skinny — I’m really strong and really agile and it gave me a new life.”

How did it give you a new life K?

What exactly is different?  Your hair hasn't changed.  (You love your highlights, don't you?)

You've been skinny lots of times. 

Star Trek.
Look Who's Talking
Parker Stevenson
Jenny Craig

You've been fat lots of times too:

The problem is, when you are fat, you behave as if you are somehow unworthy.  You kvetch to Star and People and whoever will talk to you about how "disgusting" you feel and how "ashamed" you are. 

Kirstie -- YOU BANGED PARKER STEVENSON.  Do you know how many women would have LOVED to be in your shoes?  You have a life.  A really, really cool life.  You have a cool life when you are skinny and you have a cool life when you are fat. 

We love you both ways.

Now, in DWTS, you are working out and feeling great.  I am so happy for you.  But this is not the answer to your happy life!  If it is, you will be derailed at your first injury.  Then we have to look at more tabloid covers about how miserable you are.  Your happiness depends on you, not your dress size.

By all means, stay strong.  Stay agile.  But for God's sake -- KEEP YOUR LIFE.  (It's ok to ditch the highlights tho.)



  1. Yeah, the highlights aren't working for me, either.
    But, she did look hot with those pointy ears in Star Trek.

  2. Hi! I saw your blog on 40 things to do in CC FB page and have read it in the last few days. I wanted to comment on your perspective on Kirstie Alley. THANK YOU!! I've been saying this very thing for a while now. The contestants on the Biggest Loser are the ones that drive me nuts. "Now that I have lost the weight, I'm ready to live my life". Have these people been laying dormant only to arise and lose the weight? Sheesh. I too am of the chubby wubby persuasion LOL but I have had a great life so far. Great blog by the way. I'll be reading regularly! -Ellie

  3. Welcome Ellie! I also LOVE CC! I love Kirstie but I wanna throttle her every time she does this! And she does it A LOT.

  4. Amen, sister! My husband and I were talking about her hair last night. Back in her Cheers! days when her hair was dark, her hair was so beautiful. She should definitely lighten up on the highlights. Pun intended.

  5. Skinny, fat, whatever. She just needs to shed the Scientology! :)

  6. Okay, Mary, it's me, Andrea. I had to move blogs because Blogger turned psychotic and wouldn't let me comment or even post a new link to a new blog. With that being said, I'm mad a Kirstie.

    Kirstie said she is a size 6 now. Good for nher. She looks good. But she is not a 6. Why lie? Be proud of yourself and don't make up a number to make yourself look better.

    I hope I'll see you at the new blog.



    This is why I voted for Hines.

    Kisses, Nicki


I LOVE to read comments. Seriously. I check them every day. Insecure? Maybe.
