Kirstie Alley spoofs herself on new 'Fat Actress' show

UPI News Service, 12/21/2004 

Kirstie Alley, star of the comedy "Fat Actress," is also the new star client for Jenny Craig -- something scriptwriters have turned into a running joke.

In the pilot for "Fat Actress" Alley's character complains that the only job she can get is as a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, an actual assignment she expects -- in real life -- to begin next year, reported Tuesday.

The Emmy winning actress will begin appearing in the diet company's commercials Jan. 10.

"I had a great time getting fat and now I'm going to have an even greater time losing weight," Alley says.

"Since I started working with the Jenny Craig team, they've supported my unconventional, hopefully humorous, approach to coming to grips with the fact that I'm certifiably fat -- I goof around with that on my show, 'Fat Actress.' The truth is, no one wants to think they need Jenny Craig, but once you regain consciousness and realize, as I did, that it's the best and most fun plan out there, you concede."

"Fat Actress" is a Showtime offering.
