Kirstie Alley took up smoking again to keep her “size 4″ figure

According to the National Enquirer, Kirstie Alley is now on the nicotine diet. The Dancing With the Stars finalist is reportedly frustrated that her efforts to lose more weight and keep it off aren’t as successful now that she’s no longer exercising for seven hours a day. Kirstie was spotted out smoking in New York, a habit she gave up seven years ago. It could have been a one-off, or Kirstie could be turning back to cigarettes to fight food cravings, if the Enquirer is to be believed.

Kirstie Alley… is so desperate to maintain her recent weight loss that she’s secretly started smoking again. [Kirstie] quit smoking cold turkey in 2004 over health concerns.

But alarmed over regaining 12 pounds since the May 24 DWTS finale, Kirstie has started puffing like a smokestack hoping it will help keep her appetite under control so she can maintain her weight, say sources.

“Since she isn’t dancing seven hours a day anymore and isn’t being watched like a hawk over her calorie intake, she slipped up and went on a junk food bender,” revealed a source…

She started binge eating to fill the void. “Once she started gaining weight, she realized that putting on pounds would only make her feel worse – so she started smoking to help keep the weight off,” explained the insider.

Kirstie was spotted lighting up at New York City’s Vault club on June 23, flaunting the city’s outdoor smoking ban…

“These days whenever Kirstie get the urge to eat, she fires up a cigarette,” said the insider.

That sucks for Kirstie. I haven’t smoked in about 15 years, but it’s not an easy habit to give up. She probably has found plenty of ways to justify it to herself. I mean this is the woman who truly believes that she’s a size 4 and is moments away from a 22 inch waist. You would think that she would just be happy looking at the fake tags her assistants sew in her clothing and not worry about losing more weight or keeping it off.

Kirstie looks hot though, and you can tell by her duckface that she knows it. (Although she pretty much always looks like that.) Here she is in a tight black dress at an event in New York on Wednesday night. She then had herself papped the next day in tight black leggings and a clingy black v-neck dress. She also wore this about a month prior to another event, on 6/20 at the Bad Teacher NY premiere, and sported a similar look on 6/28 for another pap outing, not that there’s anything wrong with that. She has some great accessories to mix it up.

    Size 4?!?! In what universe? Please do something with your hair….

  2. jesikabelcher says:

    Those poor heels!! (first three pics)

  3. Darlene says:

    Ten pounds of sugar in a five pound sack, as we used to say down here in Texas.

  4. MarenGermany says:

    I dont wanna be heavy but god I wish I will look like her when I´m 60.

    smoking is bad bad bad. I am smoking for four years now, and I just cant quit. It is so hard. I tried and was clean for like a month. Everything was better, I mean literally everything.
    Beer tastes better with a cigarette (non-smokers will understandably argue that) so I started again at a party.
    How dumb can a single person be to take it up again?
    Ugh…sometimes I hate myself.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Hope she’s not smoking again.
    Why doesn’t she hire a nutritionist and a trainer?

  6. melissapedsrn says:

    Those black leggings are crying for mercy.

  7. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Kirstie would look good in a long flowing skirt – she has a gorgeous figure.

  8. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:

    In the full body photo of her black dress – those shoes do not compliment her legs. She has thicker legs and the strap around the ankle makes her ankle/legs look even larger. Notice when she wears the same shoes with the black leggings, it hides that fact.

    I’m not going to chastise about smoking, because I do it on occasion too. But to pick up the habit to curb your appetite? Not good.

    I don’t care what your age, the duck face is evil and stupid.

    I love seeing celebrities recycle outfits.

  9. yepp says:

    there is nothing wrong with her weight.. she just needs to dress for her age and weight. even if she was a size “4″ my god she is still 60! dress your age not your shoe size!

  10. Tiffany says:

    Smoking is not the cure for over eating.
    In no universe is this woman a size 4. She looks like a stuffed sausage.
    She looks good for her age if she’d just stop all the delusion.

  11. Lantana says:

    I was glancing the article bc I really don’t follow KA too much, so when I caught 6/20 and 6/28 I thought it was the size she says she was and the size you thought she was, then I thought how could she have gone up that many sizes…so stupid me I actually read and realized they were dates. Lol.

  12. Lou says:

    She has no idea how to dress for her shape and her poor feet look tortured in those shoes.

  13. RHONYC says:

    *weeping, tears*

    “Help me, Help me, Help me” – Kirstie Alley’s shoes

  14. Cheyenne says:

    @MarenGermany: It’s hard but hang in there. I quit cold turkey from 2 packs a day and haven’t smoked for years. If I did it you can do it. Keep trying.

    Horse Poor Hanna: Yup,she’s down to jockey weight.

    If the horse she’s riding is a Percheron.

  15. jokerjim says:

    I am confused here. What is so wrong with the way she looks? She is 60!!! If it makes her happy to say she is a size 4, so what. That I can tell, no one is being hurt by that. She is in denial, so are millions of other people.
    At the end of the day, she is 60 and looks great, not just for her age. I would far prefer a womanly figure like hers than that of Gwinneth Paltrow.

  16. Twez says:

    I think she’s reading the blogs, because she’s wearing hose with that dress. I just recall all the comments about her legs looking so awful the last time she was in a dress.

  17. 4Real says:

    LOL!!! She really needs to QUIT!

  18. Tomas says:

    MUTTON DRESSED AS LAMB…stop trying to dress like a 30 year old, Kirstie, it makes you look pathetic.

  19. Sassy says:

    Tights should be banned forever. I am thinking of how unflattering they are on Kirstie, Christina Aguilera, Kim and the other Kardashians including the Mom. Why do they continue to stuff their flabby thighs into tights, of all things. Have they never heard of properly tailored slacks or skirts that fall nicely off the hips? Tights with heels look hookerish on anyone.

  20. Minnie says:

    I’d say she’s a size 18. Where is she getting size 4 from ??? Delusional much ?!?

  21. Nymeria says:

    Regardless of her size, I love her hourglass shape. I’m sick of being told that I have to look like a 9 year old boy to be considered beautiful. I like Kirsty’s shape, I like GooP’s shape, I even like Waity’s [pre-engagement] shape; they’re all different and they’re all beautiful. But being told that only stick-thin is acceptable has become galling.

  22. KLO says:

    Kirsty looks fine. I think everyone should justleave her alone and let her be happy with the current weight. I hope she can stick to it and not start yo-yoing again.

  23. Hootie Hoo says:

    Smoking is SOOOOOOO organic. Wonder if that is listed in her Sciento diet.

  24. Rog says:

    “Kirstie looks hot though”

    CB, are you NUTS?

    She looks like exactly what she is: a fat, hideous, poorly-dressed blob with a face that deserves to be run-over by a bulldozer, and no perceptible talent.

    Kardashians! Look! This is all of you ten years from now (or last week).

  25. gg says:

    Her shoes always seem to make her legs look worse. Delicate shoes on lumpy treestumps not attractive.

    How are her legs so lumpy though??

  26. AcesHigh says:

    I wish she would just accept herself and her weight. Not every body is designed to look like a stick thin model. Instead of lying to herself and destroying her health with cigarettes, she should just embrace her figure.

  27. april says:

    She is heavy from the waist down but she looks terrific from the waist up. She needs to relax and focus on her blessings. Hardly any women at 60 look that good in their face.

  28. jamie says:

    if shes a size 4 I must be a -0 lol

  29. Trey says:

    After all these years and all this noise- Scientology, her weight, her love life- I just really wish she would find what she’s looking for.
    She seems like she’s searching hard for something to fill a hole inside of her (the price of it not being filled is delusion; if she was to admit failure or defeat on any level it would equal meltdown).
    ::settles back into armchair::

    Not that Alley deserves or needs my sympathy; she’s just so delusional I shudder to think of the negativity she’s got pent up inside of her.

  30. Kate says:

    Well, she’ll get super thin when she starts chemotherapy for lung cancer!

  31. Cherry Rose says:

    @Rog – Too bad we all can’t conform to your standards of beauty. Seriously dude, what is your problem?

    I wish she’d just own her bodyshape and wear clothes to flatter her figure, just like the gorgeous Mia Tyler.

  32. Emily says:

    I’m about the same size as she is in these photos, and there’s no way she could ever be a size 4! More like a size 12, or a generous 10.

  33. Anti-icon says:

    Photos don’t lie that much when people struggle with weight due to depression (I’m just guessing, I’ve always thought that about KA). She looks good. So, puff puff. Divorce your “religion” and keep the cigs — 20 friends in a box. Some stressors in life are bigger than others. Balance is hard to strike. It seems to me that KA is really trying.
