Kirstie Alley’s Back To Her ‘Fat Actress’ Ways

pic_123905_1

In the above scene from Fat Actress, which ran for one season on Showtime in 2005, Kirstie Alley shrilly whines and dines in the company of her Look Who’s Talking co-star John Travolta. On the show, Alley played herself in a meta-parody that managed to be more over-the-top than Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm. In every episode, she’s crass, horny and hopeless about her ever-growing waistline. And she’s always trying to bed younger celebrities like Kid Rock. These days, it seems like Fat Actress was less a satire than an accurate look into Alley’s private life.

Case in point: the former Cheers star recently told People magazine that she has a mad crush on The Soloist actor/singer Jamie Foxx, saying that she would love a “booty call” from him. And it was a call that Foxx answered

I do like them thick and she is thick.”

And now that she’s gained back all the ponds that she lost with Weight Watchers, perhaps she and Foxx could star in a new version of Fat Actress: a full-fledged reality show! I bet VH1 would buy the rights in a second.
