Overview

She captured our hearts with her award-winning performances on screen. Now Kirstie Alley is poised to do it again as she laughingly explores our American obsession with fat, food, love, sex, beauty, and weight loss.

If anyone in Hollywood knows about weight obsession, it's Kirstie Alley. After she rose to fame on Cheers as the svelte and gorgeous Rebecca Howe, she watched as the tabloids mercilessly chartered her fluctuating weight. Well, look out, Hollywood, because this beloved star is ready to strike back - with a starring role in a new, unscripted comedy series on Showtime calle Fat Actress. She plays a fictionalized version of herself as she searches for work and love in the land of glitter and glamour. The show, which promted a huge media buzz when Showtime announced plans for it, premieres just as this witty and wry new book hits bookstores across the nation.

Alley's accounting gives readers and intimate look into her life while providing a hilarious view of being overweight in a skinny-obsessed world. Whether readers are struggling with weight or personal integrity - or if they're just looking for love and happiness - they'll identify with Alley's experiences. She tells it like it is and helps us laugh at ourselves (and others.)

    Good Actress, Horrible Language

    The cussing in this book alone drives me nuts. She cusses in almost every sentence. And the book has zero to do with weight loss. I figured I would learn some tips or see how she got past it. I didn't see any of that. All I saw was a memoir concerning her sex life. The only part of the book I enjoyed was reading about her friend Jim and her children. I thought she showed a lot of character talking about them. The rest of the book is a mess. I would not read again. Quick read. I was done in two days. She is a great actress and might be a good writer if she did not cuss and talk about her sex life so much.

    Not what I expected...

    I purchased this book thinking it would be an inspiration to help me to stick with my current weight loss plan, but this book turned out to be a memoir of her life. Kirstie did offer a few interesting parts of her life, but otherwise I thought this book did not live up to it's title. I was able to get through this book in 2 days so it's an easy read.

    SUPERB!!

    If you like Kirstie on screen you will love this book! She is just as entertaining and funny as ever in this shocking and hilarious account of some experiences in her life. She has now proved herself talented in another arena..writing, and I can't wait for her next book. I read this in 4 1/2 hours, I just couldn't put it down. Just a note, for some out there who may be wondering by the title of the book if this is all about how to lose weight... it is not. It's truly Kirstie putting herself out there exposed for all of us to see, to laugh with, to identify with on many levels and many aspects of our lives, an entertaining read for men and women.... just buy the book!!!!
