KIRSTIE Alley is being sued!
The former Cheers star is facing legal action for allegedly lying about how she dumped 100 lbs.
In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, a California woman who claims Organic Liaison — the weight loss product Kirstie shills online and on QVC — is not the reason the star dramatically slimmed down.
Marina Abramyan — who used the product and filed the class action lawsuit — alleges Kirstie shed the weight by dancing on Dancing with the Stars and eating an extremely low-calorie diet.
Abramyan says Organic Liaison is bogus — just calcium and fiber which is not a proven weight-loss product. She’s suing for unspecified damages.
Meanwhile, executives at Jenny Craig are apparently willing to let the past be the past and help the chubby Cheers star drop the 25 pounds she’s regained!
Jenny Craig dumped Alley as spokesperson in early 2008. But they’ve now offered to welcome her back as a special guest sponsor.
“The Jenny Craig brass keep tabs on their former celebrity spokespersons, and just like the rest of the world, they’ve watched Kirstie struggle with her battle of the bulge,” a source told the National Enquier.
“They loved having Kirstie as their representative for three years because she lost 75 pounds by following their plan. Plus, she’s so much fun that everyone loves her!
“Kirstie eats when she’s under pressure, and that’s exactly what she was doing while trying to finish her memoir.
“She’s a classic binge eater and she can pack on the pounds faster than anyone. Kirstie is her own worst enemy — she knows she’s fat and she hates herself for it, but that just makes her eat more. It’s a vicious cycle.
“Jenny Craig wishes the best for all their clients, but they especially want Kirstie to succeed. She’s the classic yo-yo dieter, and because she wrestles with her weight in public, everyone roots for her. Hopefully, she’ll figure it out before she faces serious health issues.”
