Kirstie Alley “Oprah” Interview — “I Gained It All Back!”
Kirstie told Oprah it was “humiliating” regaining all the weight she worked so hard to lose and feels she let the people down who looked up to her while she was the Jenny’s spokesperson.
The noticably plumper star’s body is shaped quite differently than the one we saw when she strutted across Oprah’s stage in a bikini five years ago. Kirstie said her weight troubles flared up again after her endorsement deal with Jenny Craig ended.
“When you’re a spokesperson for a weight loss company … somebody weighs you every week,” she says. “It’s pressure, but it’s good pressure. I do better if I have some pressure on me…When I didn’t have that anymore … I just said, ‘I’m going to cut myself some slack.’ Big mistake.”
“It’s humiliating,” Kirstie told Oprah. “The most painful thing for me is that I have all these people that I inspired and then I let them down.”
