Kirstie Alley has been going through a public weight-loss battle for several years now.Â When she spiraled out of control, she promised Oprah she would walk out on stage in a bikini as motivation to lose the weight.Â She finally did, and she looked amazing.Â However, she has fallen back off the horse again.Â Well, now she’s turning her struggles into a reality show. I mean, who isn’t?
Kirstie has signed on to do the reality show with A&E network, which will debut next year and run for ten episodes.Â The show will track her progress as she juggles her crazy life as a Hollywood actress and single mom of two teenagers, all while trying to lose weight.
“Kirstie is exactly the kind of star A&E is drawn to,” said A&E 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.”
Last May, Kirstie told People, “I’m gonna go, ‘You know what? Get back on the horse, lose the freakin’ weight, and then just move forward!’ ”
