I used to be a fan of Kirstie Alley. I watched “It Takes Two” multiple times even when was I was clearly too old to enjoy the movie. Kirstie Alley was a bigger woman, funny, and she got the guy…sure the guy was Steve Guttenberg but whatever. I was fan. I was even one of those annoying incorrect people who stated Rebecca was better than Diane. I changed my mind after a few Diane episodes but Kelsey Grammar trumped Shelly Long so there. I have nothing against Shelly Long. Stay on topic.
Anyway, I also watched ALL of the ‘Look Who’s Talking’ movies for Kirstie Alley. I even liked the 3rd one and that one kinda sucked. I don’t have bad taste in movies, I just pick an actress/actor and stick with them.
I even watched Fat Actress. Yea. That one person watching the awkward scenes between Hanging with Mr. Cooper and the now fat Vulcan- Romulan? That was me.
And so we fast forward to now. If you’ve watched the clip above then I’m kinda sorry but I have a point to make. I need Kristie Alley to stop talking about her weight. Not because I don’t feel her pain but because I’m tired of how much she hates her body. I am sooo tired of how much she hates her body. I feel like I’ve been hearing about how much she hates her body for like ten years. I don’t want her to be forced to accept a body she doesn’t like but I would LOVE if she shut the hell up about it. And so a letter.
Dear Kirstie Alley,
America knows you hate being fat. We get you don’t like your body. It kinda sucks that you hate being fat because you are fat. Personally, I don’t think you’ll ever have your body from the 80s or even from when you went on Orpah sporting a two piece and that’s cool with me and probably a bunch of other people. But it’s not cool with you. We get it. No one is asking you to join a Fat Acceptance movement or do ads for adiposivity project. That link isn’t work safe. Don’t click it at work.
In short, I can’t tell you how to feel about your body. I would hate for someone to tell me how to feel about my body. I can say that I used to be a fan until you made a career out of hating your body. I hope you are able to lose the weight and keep off, if it will make you shut up about it.
Good luck on your new show.
