It was only two years ago when fat actress and Jenny Craig spokeswoman Kirstie Alley was encouraging an overweight Valerie Bertinelli to join Jenny as their new weight loss spokesperson. Earlier this year Bertinelli appeared on the cover of ‘People’ in a teeny bikini looking toned and tanned, while last week Alley appeared on ‘Oprah’ looking roly poly.
Kirstie told Oprah she “about died” when she saw the pix of a bikini-bod Bertinelli who lost 50 pounds on the Jenny Craig program.
“I felt I was married to someone and they left me for Gisele,” says Alley. It was dazzling, it wasn’t just good … I was dying. There is no comparison in my reveal and hers.”
Alley says after losing 75 pounds, her weight woes returned when she decided to ‘cut myself some slack.’ And some serious cake, I’ll bet. She also converted her gym into a DINING room.
Alley vows to win the battle of the bulge, which is good news for Jenny Craig who issued a statement:
“Jenny Craig maintains a friendly relationship with Kirstie and we are proud of her accomplishments while she was on our program. Kirstie successfully lost 75 lbs and maintained that weight loss throughout our three year relationship, which came to an end in December 2007. We remain supportive of Kirstie, wish her nothing but the best and we would welcome her back at any time as a returning client.”
