Kirstie Alley is being sued for allegedly lying about how she dumped 100 lbs.
The suit, obtained by TMZ, was filed by a California woman who claims Organic Liaison– the weight loss product Kirstie hocks online and on QVC — is not the reason Kirstie dramatically slimmed down.
Plaintiff Marina Abramyan — who used the product and filed the class action lawsuit — alleges Kirstie shed the lbs by dancing her ass off on “Dancing with the Stars” and eating an extremely low-calorie diet.
As for Organic Liaison, Abramyan says it’s bogus — just a bunch of calcium and fiber which is not a proven weight-loss product.
Abramyan is suing for unspecified damages.
We contacted Kirstie’s rep. So far, no comment.
This has got to be the dumbest thing I’ve heard all day, which is pretty impressive considering that we just talked about Madonna. Do people still honestly believe that these weight loss products work? Sure, some can help – either to give you lots of caffeine so you’ll have more energy to burn calories or to give you lots of laxatives so you’ll lose all that extra poop weight, from what I’ve seen – but there’s no pill or supplement or cream (I just recently learned that fat burning creams exist, honestly) that will make you lose weight while you chill out, eating ice cream and watching Lifetime*.
If you really want to lose weight, then that’s fine, obviously. But you have to work for it. There’s no way around that. Kirstie Alley, if you’ll remember, danced her ass off on Dancing with the Stars, and that’s how she got to be Megan Fox’s size, not from some weight loss product she got paid mad amounts of money to endorse. I really can’t believe that people think that.
*I say this not to perpetuate some sort of stereotype, but simply because it is currently my fondest wish to be able to chill out, eat ice cream, and watch Lifetime.
