Quotables: Kirstie Alley Defends Tom Cruise (Probably Because She’s a Scientologist, Too)

“I think whenever you have articles written that are third and fourth parties’ opinions – it’s like the game Gossip and you don’t get the truth – I think that a magazine of that caliber should have interviewed him, and then they would get the truth. I think that probably all religions sound bizarre to the people who are not the practitioners of them. … To me it’s so normal, and probably 90% of the crazy stuff I hear isn’t true.”

Kirstie Alley on the controversial Vanity Fair piece that outed Tom Cruise as nothing more than a highly-controlled robot who has no say in any major decisions of his life.

To be fair, Maureen Orth, the woman who conducted and compiled all of the Vanity Fair interviews and composed the article as a whole, persistently attempted to get Tom’s side of the story for the piece, but was denied each and every time, so, no, Kirstie Alley, there are not “third and fourth” parties involved here that the magazine would have preferred to interview instead of Tom, it’s because CRAZY SCIENTOLOGY doesn’t allow Tom to speak for himself or for anyone else that he may or may not care about.

Jeez Louise.

Kirstie Alley Is Being Sued for Lying About Her Weight Loss

A photo of Kirstie Alley

From TMZ:

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.

Quotables: Kirstie Alley Sure Knows How to Talk Up A Book

A photo of Kirstie Alley

“I’m not here to one-up another author but you know, I didn’t find it very factual. I lived with a guy for three years who made Christian Grey look like Justin Bieber. [Christian] didn’t even pee on her. He didn’t choke her or try to suffocate her … If it’s S&M you’re looking for, then you will like my book.”

- Kirstie Alley compares her new memoirs, The Art of Men, to the greatest literary masterpiece of the 21st century, 50 Shades of Grey.

Also, WHAT? Is Kirstie saying that she was in one of them dominant/submissive relationships like in 50 Shades of Grey, or is she saying that she was horrifically abused and also peed on? Who was the guy? Didn’t she date William Shatner at some point? Is anyone else considering how genius casting Justin Bieber in the 50 Shades movie would be?

We need answers, and we need them now.

The 5 Best (and Worst!) ‘Stars Without Makeup’ of 2011

Ah, how often we forget that celebrities are actually “real” people, much like we are, and how grafitying it can be to see them doing normal things like going to the gym, buying coffee, and wearing hats to try and disguise just how normal they are.

Here’re the 5 Best Celebrities Without Makeup of 2011:

#5 – Sammi Giancola

So, right, I realize that she’s not technically without makeup, but compared to what she *usually* looks like, this is as bare-faced as it gets, guys.

#4 – Miranda Kerr

This one is kind of a given, because if you’re a Victoria’s Secret supermodel, you’re contractually obligated to look like this. OF COURSE she’s going to show up on the “good” side of this list somewhere.

#3 – Khloe Kardashian

Some of you probably think that it’s a joke, or a mistake, that Khloe ended up on this side of the post, but compared to her older drama queen sisters, Khloe-sans-makeup is refreshing enough to make you forget that she doesn’t look all that great in comparison to what she looks like with makeup. So in the paradox world of the Kardashians, that makes her look AMAZING in the real world.

#2 – Kirstie Alley

Here’s another one that might have you scratching at your head, but Kirstie here is included on the ‘Best’ list because she looks her AGE. And she goes out in public not really giving a f-ck about what people think about her face, and that’s probably more attractive than most of the plasticky people we talk about overall.

#1 – Jennifer Love Hewitt

Bitch please. Did you think you were going to escape 2011 without at least one more “I LOVE JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT” post?

Jump in for the worst!

New Couple Alert: Bradley Cooper and Kirstie Alley

A photo of Brad Cooper and Kirstie Alley

Oh my gosh, did you guys really believe that? Did you really think that I was about to tell you about Bradley Cooper taking Kirstie Alley out on a hot date filled with romance and attraction? Aww, no, darlings. No, that’s not how it happened. Bless your hearts! No, this is just another story documenting Kirstie Alley’s lovable delusions.

From the National Enquirer via Celebitchy:

The 60 year-old former “Fat Actress” – who has dropped an astonishing 100 pounds in the past several months – has been asking mutual friends to set her up with [Bradley Cooper], who is 36. But her cougar crush isn’t likely to work out, say sources, because the handsome actor is “just not that into her.”

“Kirstie has been desperate for a date with Bradley,” an insider revealed.

“Since dropping the pounds, Kirstie believes she can have any man in Hollywood – and Bradley is her number one pick.

“They have mutual friends, and Kirstie told them she wanted to meet Bradley. She thinks once he gets to know her, the feelings will be mutual.

“Bradley is just about to start production on a new movie that shoots in Philadelphia. Now Kirstie is telling pals that she has some business to do in Philadelphia and that she hopes Brad will find time to have a coffee with her…”

Bradley’s not really interested! “Bradley is looking to meet somebody to settle down with an start a family,” added the insider.

And that’s not Kirstie!

Did anyone else just gain a massive amount of love for Kirstie Alley?

Tim Gunn to Kirstie Alley: “Girl, Please

A photo of Tim Gunn

So you remember last week when Kirstie Alley gave her latest weight loss update? The one where she claimed to have lost 100 pounds and also said that she is now a size 4? Yeah, so does Tim Gunn. And you know he’s not going to let that fantasy fly:

In an interview with Tampa radio station 98.7 FM, the Project Runway star shed some light on the actress’ size claim saying, “There is a phenomenon out there right now that I call the lying deceptive shell game of vanity sizing. In fact a 4 is really a 6 or an 8.”

The chief creative director for Liz Claiborne explained his theory, which was based on an experiment he did at Parsons.

“We took a size 8 dress from 1980 one from 1990 and one from 2000 and compared them — the difference between them was two and a half inches in the waist alone!” said Gunn.

As for Alley’s true size, the fashion guru guesses that she’s between a size 8 and a 10.

“But she looks fabulous,” he added. “People are too size conscious.”

As usual, Tim Gunn is absolutely right. And of course it doesn’t matter what size Kirstie really is, and of course she looks fabulous either way, but, as Tim said, people are too conscious of this kind of thing, and it gets old quick. For example, there are a good few plus size stores that have their own sizing charts, right? I found this out when I was in a show a few years ago. The costumer gave me a dress to try on, and the label claimed it was a size 2, and I was like “ain’t no way that me or this dress is a size 2.” I’ve never understood that, or even why women’s clothing can’t be like men’s and, you know, go by actual measurements. Does the clothing industry really think we’re that scared of real numbers? Or is it that people actually are that scared of them?

I know this talk is getting really real, you guys, so if instead of answering this question you’d rather just post funny pictures of bears in suspenders or something, that’s ok too.

Quotables: Kirstie Alley’s Lost 100 Pounds!

A photo of Kirstie Alley

“I’ve lost 100 pounds. I feel like I’m back in my element and not wearing a suit, a bad suit. And I honestly didn’t even realize what I looked like too much. Right before I did Dancing with the Stars, I bought these dresses in size 14 to 4, the same dress, and I said, ‘You know what I really want? I really want to be in this dress in a 4.’”

Oh, Kirstie, have you now? I know that you have a reputation for not being that great with this kind of thing, but 100 pounds, doesn’t that seem like kind of an extreme number to you?

What do you guys think though? Am I off in my doubting, do you think Kirstie really has lost that much weight? Or is this just another deluded statement from everyone’s favorite Scientologist?
