Celebrity Spot-Lite: Kirstie Alley on Letterman
Oh Kirstie Alley. I’m surprised I haven’t written about you on here yet, because you are truly the queen of hot messes of weight/the weight loss industry in America.
I think we all know by now that Kirstie Alley has struggled with/against her weight very publicly for quite some time now–losing weight and promoting Jenny Craig, gaining it all and more back and thus losing her spokesperson contract, starting the show “Fat Actress,” revealing all on a “reality” show “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life,” launching “Organic Liaison, the first USDA-certified organic weight loss product,” Dancing with the Stars and again losing weight and now…
Now Kirstie Alley has appeared on Dave Letterman to remind him of how terrible he was to her when she was heavier by repeating some of the choice jokes he made at her expense. These include:
Kirstie Alley is joining “Dancing with the Stars.” If you don’t already own one, now might be a good time to get a widescreen TV.
Last night on “Dancing with the Stars”, Kirstie Alley fell on the dancefloor. How many of you felt it? However, the judges scored her an 8. On the Richter scale.
Wow. Classy jokes, Dave. It’s interesting to see her calling him out on how rude he is though, while also kind of mocking her former self. At the beginning, she exclaims “I thought you loved me!” and towards the end, Letterman tried to defend himself:
We do love you, and if you were skinny we would tell jokes about you…oh probably not.
This is really a hot mess. Uncomfortable, uncouth, just…ew. But I wish Kirstie had been more forthright in her own attack on Letterman, because 1) He deserves it, 2) His jokes about her weight are just downright disrespectful, and 3) He deserves it.
Happy Weekend, y’all.
