Ready for another celebrity reality show? Self-professed “Fat Actress” Kirstie Alley is getting in on the trend with the introduction of a 10-episode half-hour weekly docudrama about her decade-long struggle with weight. Kirstie is thisclose to inking a deal to star in a reality show for A&E that will premiere in 2010, Variety reported Tuesday.
“Kirstie is exactly the kind of star A&E is drawn to,” says A&E Nonfiction/Alternative Programming Senior VP Robert Sharenow. “Her personal life has been playing out in the media for years, but this will be the first time she’ll be opening up her home to reveal her real life for the cameras.”
According to the trade paper, we’ll get to watch the former Veronica’s Closet star “producing a feature film, patenting multiple inventions, working hard to raise two normal Hollywood teenagers, taking care of eight ringtail lemurs and, on top of everything, looking for love.”
Look out for Kirstie on today’s Oprah with “some fun news to announce.”
