Because the Jenny Craig weight loss regime has been so successful for her, or more likely because her three year stint as spokesho has come to an end (because Jenny Craig found less Scientology-affiliated spokespeople in Valerie Bertinelli and Queen Latifah), and due to the permanent hiatus her career appears to be on, Kirstie Alley has decided now is the perfect time to start her own weight loss program.
I'm all for being reasonably politically correct and all, but, um . . . shouldn't you practice what you preach? At least for the most part? She seemed to do okay in the beginning with Jenny Craig, but then the temptation of Krispy Kreme got to her or something.
Anyhow, she told People magazine (of course): "I intend to develop and pilot my own weight-loss brand that I hope to launch in 2009." "I want to create something new that will help millions of people end the seemingly never ending fatty-roller coaster ride." Okay, Kirstie. As soon as you create something to help the fatty-roller coaster ride, I suggest you make yourself your first client.
