Remember how Kirstie Alley lost a massive amount of weight while she was on Dancing with the Stars? At the time, the Fat Actress star was using Organic Liaison, a special weight loss product that she just happened to be endorsing. We all suspected that the weight loss had something to do with Kirstie Alley dancing several hours each day, but now, an unhappy Organic Liaison customer is suing Alley for making “false and misleading advertising claims.” Is there something to this argument? Keep reading for the details!
Dancing with the Stars could easily switch its format to a weight loss competition. After all, several alums have successfully dropped extra pounds while competing on the show. Kirstie Alley’s DWTS weight loss story was especially impressive, as the actress lost over 60 pounds while on the show. Alley, however, credited much of this weight loss success to Organic Liaison, a weight loss company that she was endorsing at the time. Now, another Organic Liaison user is suing the DWTS alum for misleading customers. Marina Abramyan tried Organic Liaison and had little success, probably, because, believe it or not, weight loss supplements are (gasp) not magic! Most of us would have realized this before wasting our money, but Abramyan believes that she was purposefully misled by Kirstie Alley.
Marina Abramyan’s legal filing company points specifically to Kirstie Alley’s claim that, “I am proof of its success; I lost one hundred pounds on Organic Liaison.” Abramyan argues that Organic Liaison was not behind the incredible weight loss; Dancing with the Stars was! According to the suit, “Alley’s weight loss is not due to the Organic Liaison Program, but rather, is the result of an above average exercise regimen and extremely low calorie diet, including her time on the television program Dancing with the Stars where she spent five to seven hours a day exercising as part of the competition.”
Well, yeah, most of us suspected that dancing seven hours a day might lead to weight loss. That’s called common sense! Does this sound to you like a ploy for money? Leave your comments below!
