Dancing With The Stars: Kirstie Alley Continues To Lose Weight

April 22, 2011 02:00 PM by Allyson Wells

Kirstie Alley may have had two dancing mishaps on Dancing with the Stars, but she has does have a reason to be happy.  After many rehearsals and performances with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Kirstie is losing weight fast.  She has recently revealed that she has already dropped several dress sizes!

Kirstie told US Magazine, I started out in a size 12, then an 8, and then I think next week I’ll be in a 6.  The real size I want to be in is probably a 4 or a 6.  That’s where I look best.”  She is literally dancing the pounds away.

The fan favorite also told the magazine that she might consider doing a big weight loss reveal on Oprah.  “There aren’t that many Oprah shows left, but you never know.  It’s whittling fast, and I’m dancing every day.  Who knows?” 

Kirstie will also be debuting her Organic Liaison weight loss system on QVC on Saturday at 11 am EST.  Kirstie has famously struggled with her weight over the years and documented some of it in her reality show, Fat Actress.

Kirstie and Maks visited Oprah a few weeks ago, and Kirstie admitted that she felt broken before the show and the dancing was a cathartic release for her.  So not only is Kirstie losing weight, she is mentally feeling better.  At the rate she is going, imagine how much weight she will lose if she does indeed make it to the finale.  If she does make an Oprah appearance for the big reveal, maybe Maks will return with her for another shirtless dance!

    No way she started at a size 12. 18-20 is more like it

    It does seem a little off, doesn’t it?

    While I am happy that she is doing so well and losing weight, there is NO way she started at a size 12 dress size. I would ask if this was a typo except for the followup remarks that she is now a size 8.

    Hi Peggy, it wasn’t a typo on my end, although it sounds suspicious. We’ll have to continue to watch and see what new information comes out. I’ll be sure to report it. :)

    I hope she is losing weight, but I have to agree there is no way that she started at a 12, maybe a 20 at least, she is definitely not telling the truth!
