Though it's not overtly a weight-loss reality show like The Biggest Loser or Celebrity Fit Club, Kirstie Alley's new reality series will explore some weighty issues. Premiering March 21 on A&E, Kirstie Alley's Big Life looks like a lot of fun, chronicling Alley's career but also her struggles with weight loss.
As Alley explains in the promo above: "I was thin my whole life, 'til I gained 75 pounds, then I lost 75 pounds, then I gained 75 pounds." She rejects the descriptor "full-figured," admitting that she's just "fat." But she's still determined to lose the weight again:
"We're gonna see me lose weight in the show, because I think that, you know, we always see people the 'before' and the 'after.' And we don't really know what happens in between. And the in between is really the meat and potatoes, no pun intended."
I find Alley's honesty refreshing and I hope she can figure out a way to lose the weight once and for all. Do you think you'll be tuning in?
