Kirstie Alley tells celebrities to beat up paparazzi: ‘I applaud anyone who takes a swing’

Kirstie Alley hates the paparazzi. She doesn’t have much career to speak of so she’s not a big target, but when she gains weight the paparazzi know that the Enquirer will buy the pics for an easy cover story. At least that was the case a few years back when she was in hiding prior to her DWTS gig. I just went on a little memory lane trip of the Enquirer’s Kirstie Alley cover stories. It amused me for a while so I thought I’d share:

She always looks so pissy in paparazzi photos, unless she’s lost weight, is gussied up and is hanging on some young guy. Case in point, Jonathan Knight from NKOTB. (This photo is from 2011)

Yeah, that Kristie just hates the paparazzi, unless they’re summoned to help her promote something. Anyway she’s apparently just heard the news that Kanye West beat up a photographer and she was positively giddy about it.

Kirstie is also tweeting thinly-veiled Scientology nonsense about how about 15% of people are “operating on evil intentions and hate” while “80ish percent of mankind is geared to goodness and creation instead of destruction” Notwithstanding her poor math skills, how is it good and kind to beat up photographers again?

Also, how is it kind and charitable to systematically shut out an old friend just because they’re leaving your cult?

    Another gem of wisdom from Kirstie, I see.

    Logically then, because people hate her, we can start taking a swing at her, too?

    • Tulip Garden says:

      Ha, ha, so true!! It kills me that people don’t seem to realize that accepted behaviors aren’t dependent on…well, anything. Kirstie and those like her should remain the golden rule “treat others as you wish to be treated” instead they look at that rule and somehow see “treat others according to whatever arbitrary belief system or, you know, however You feel they should be treated”!! WTF?

    The ugly is leaking out.

    • TrustMeOnThis says:

      Seriously. Maybe the reason she always looks so scary is because she IS scary! I was wondering if she’d had work done but no one ever says that, so maybe it’s just the inward Kirstie showing.

      I feel sorry for her, really. Not that I let her off the hook, but she must be miserable.

      I also kinda feel sorry for her scilon handler(s). They must be sweating bullets (if they haven’t already been sent to the RPF or the Hole). It’s gotta be a thankless task. Perhaps they are getting a cut of the fees she pays for interrogations and “confessionals.”

      To be fair: I could use a good hairbrusing, a lot of the time too. But I’m not getting papped, I’m doing housework and kitty fostering!

    Kirstie and Kanye. Are both asshats! That is all…

  4. gg says:

    Kirstie, you look like a pile of clothes and hair. Not a good look.

  5. Little Darling says:

    I abhor this woman more and more every day as her true, nasty side grows larger and larger and more Xenu filled. Violet Beauregarde of hate.

  6. Chicagogurl says:

    OMG the photo with Jonathan Knight….she looks like an aged Lilo. Oh no. Lindsay this is future. Finally kick that monkey off your back and become a scientologist.

  7. Trollontheloose says:

    I pass by her Liaison Organic yesterday and i saw it is closing down and “moving to a new location”. I never saw anyone there and often wonder how she managed to let the door open. She opened it a few days after her Dancing with the stars sting, so she thought on capitalizing on this new found fame but it didnt work. Good riddance. Whenever I pass by I feel like it’s the path to hell..

    • NerdMomma says:

      Ooh I love when people talk about passing by Scientology centers and the like…juicy info! I’m sure she’s done, now that the court case against that company went against her. Now what will she do for a career? You can’t just be a professional bully

  8. janie says:

    Maybe she’s hoping they’ll seek her out by saying that? They certainly would NOT otherwise. She’s a washed up has been! She seem to spend her time bullying people..

  9. HappyMom says:

    She’s always so disheveled looking.

  10. Inconceivable! says:

    Do the paparazzi even care to photograph or follow Kirstie Alley anymore??

  11. Amy says:

    Well, I’m sure personal injury lawyers in LA are applauding her statement. Nothing like an illegal physical attack on a person in a public place to bring on the settlement negotiations.

  12. Hannah says:

    It really bugs me that Jon Knight is besties with her.

  13. SmokeyBlues says:

    When I saw the headline I also thought, why would she care becaus it’s not like the paps are really after her ugly ass anyway. She’s such a terrible person now. Wow, Scientology realllllly does wonders for people lol

  14. Meaghan says:

    She is a disgusting excuse for a human being. I hate her so much, and also hate that she has been getting attention for all her nonsense. I hate her so much. She is completely disgusting, and a brainless idiot.
    Didnt like her on Cheers, don’t like her now. And she needs a f’n comb for her hair. And I LOVE that she got fat, SO MUCH.

    Also, I laughed at the ‘she’s not a big target’ so much, because she is in the literal sense of the word.

  15. Pinky says:

    1980s belt alert! Alert! ALERT!

  16. Amelia says:

    Some paparazzi deserve a good kick in the rear end though. I don’[t see why celebs should have to take the snide remarks and harassment some of the photographers dish out. Some think it’s better to ignore but if you are Kanye and you won’t miss the few thousand you will have to give for ‘compensation’ then go for it.

    I’m sick of paparazzi thinking they are untouchable. I read about the stress and abuse that store owners and staff on famous shopping celeb shopping streets have to take from paparazzi who are really aggressive and offputting to other clientele. They loiter around the entrances and some of the girls working in the stores get really creeped out and there is nothing they can do because the law is on paparazzi’s side.

    Enough is enough!

    • aquarius64 says:

      Celebs don’t swing back because the legal consequences outweigh the momentary satisfaction. Assault and battery. Theft and destruction of personal property (the pap’s camera). Mug shot distributed all over the world. Attorneys’ fees and court costs. All, plus the perp walk to the courthouse, equals bad publicity that can have a long-term negative impact on the celeb’s image. Unless Kristie is going to pay for those expenses and support them when they lose a career she needs to go somewhere and sit down.

    • gg says:

      They are like a pack of jackals and it gets worse every year. No one has enacted any kind of restriction on them and they’ve gotten bolder and bolder, creating dangerous conditions, and now, like you said, they catcall and insult the people they’re shooting. I really felt like there would finally be some legal steps taken when Britney had her meltdown. Remember the long line of cars that followed her while she drove around her own neighborhood – and then another time when she pulled over to change a diaper on a seaside road where there weren’t any highway shoulders? I’m shocked nobody did anything then.

      Somebody needs to legally restrict these awful people before somebody ELSE gets killed (RIP Diana). Kirstie, put your fat mouth to some use and go lobby for some laws, at least in LA County.

      • Amelia says:

        Yeah, i hate when people in comment sections dismiss disgusting paparazzi behavior as ‘what the celebs asked for’. That time Kristen Stewart’s car was written on a lot of people on this message board had a giggle and a laugh and said she should have just washed her car and said she deserved it 0________o

        So screwed up. I know it’s a moment of pleasure for some possible serious ramifications but maybe if there were more scuffles like this then the law might be forced to change. I’m just not going to judge any celeb who loses their cool and snaps back at celebs or even those who get physical. I know for a fact that i wouldn’t be be so calm and collected if i had to run the gamut every day. I just wish the general public would understand why some celsb don’t look thrilled in paparazzi photographs and stop bitching at them for not smiling or looking ‘sullen’. It’s so ignorant.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        +1, GG.

        STOP excusing the behavior of paps. Nobody, even celebs who make millions, deserve to be stalked and harassed.

    • Bridget says:

      I hate to say this, but at the end of it all WE are the ones that are creating this demand, and we are the ones that are essentially supportng this pack of jackals. When we consume the celebrity photos and candids a d stories we’re creating the demand, and the hordes of paparazzi are filling the demand that WE’VE created. We don’t want to see that kind of stuff? Then stop consuming it – don’t click on articles, buy the magazines, and certainly stayoff of TMZ.

  17. ReelChildofHell says:

    I always thought she was one of the few public Scientologists who weren’t annoying. Her books made me LOL & in one chapter she discusses Scientology but tells the reader beforehand that if they aren’t interested in her religion to feel free to skip it. She cracks me up so much (esp. on Cheers) but now I wish she would just STFU so I can continue to like her. And I hate when celebs use the paps when they need them & then act like assh*les when they don’t. Get over yourselves already! Rant over.

  18. Sam says:

    I would have thought that a scientologist would be above all this?


  19. Theresa says:

    I have no love for the methods and behaviours of some current-day paparazzi but you can’t love them one day when they take a flattering shot and then want them taken out the next day when they get you with bedhead and no makeup.

    It seems a Pandora’s Box has been opened with this co-dependent and ugly love-hate relationship of celebs and paps that doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon.

  20. Madriani's Girl says:

    Someone please help me to understand how and why she thinks she and her opinions have any relevancy (outside of joking purposes) in any way?

  21. Myra says:

    Wish COS or her friends would do an intervention and hose her down or run her through a car wash she always looks filthy!

  22. Sugarrbunny says:

    Wow, that’s a big size 4

  23. Deidre says:

    Those papps caught and exposed my dark-side, nooooo body catches and exposes my dark side for free..

  24. Ok says:

    Paparazzi and having to deal with them is one of the negatives of working in an industry where you get millions of dollars for doing relatively easy work.

    If Hollywood stars do not want to deal with the paparazzi, dropping off the face of the earth is an easy thing to do

    As a Hollywood actress or a music industry performer, you specifically need to keep your name BS face out there. Paparazzi come with the territory.

    Don’t like it, Walmart is always hiring. Do something else instead, because there are literally thousands that will gladly take your place.

  25. Dorothy says:

    Clearly, her cult Scientology has a calming effect on her life. Not!

  26. Happy21 says:

    When I think of her only one word comes to mind and it’s HAG. (not so sure anyone but me knows what this means or is but just thought i’d throw it out there)

    Anyone know why she was with Jonathan Knight? They obviously aren’t dating because he’s gay but…

    • Ok says:

      HAG — wow, you know I think I would have to agree. About 15 years ago when she was on Veronica’s Closet she exuded a lot more happiness. I even voted for her a bunch of times when she was on Dancing withe the Stars.

      But she does seem quite haggy lately.

  27. Kelly says:

    She’s a disgusting person. Can we just ignore her?

  28. Veruca says:

    She looks like a pig in a wig. (I apologize to all pigs for any offense.)

    I wish her store wasn’t closing. I’d love to leave a dead fish hidden in the merchandise. Yes, I’m petty that way, but this bitch deserves it (and much worse).

  29. Norman says:

    Not just ugly in the outside. Taking a swing at the paps and bulling former members of Scientology. Xenu, Xe-no.

  30. Decloo says:

    Can anyone provide insight into Kirstie’s forehead/hairline situation? Doe her hairline start mid-forehead? Or does she have a very large cone head ? I’ve been baffled by this for years. Anyone?

    • Lemony says:

      I am also baffled by these pictures.
      Generally I try not to snark on someone’s looks, build or weight; I feel more comfortable attacking their character, hee hee, but I MUST say: this woman looks absolutely disgusting and furthermore WHY does she look like that?
      I have no interest in or knowledge of Kirstie Alley, aside from what I’ve read of her on Celebitchy, so I have no idea why she looks as though she’s climbed out of a storm drain. Seriously, what the hell? And her face? Is she smelling something gross (herself?) or is this bad plastic surgery? Is that slept-in puke in her hair? Why does she look so DIRTY?
      Perhaps it’s xenu karma for being so evil. Also, I could totally see her in an episode of Hoarders.
      Sorry, just had a liitle OCD rant there. Feeling better now ;)

  31. Mia says:

    Hey, I don’t advocate beating someone down for being simply for being a pap but there has to be a more respectful and decent way for some of these people to conduct their jobs. If a pap invades a celebrity’s personal space, shouts abuse at them, chases them, or harasses them all for a picture or a video, it’s completely understandable if they end up getting their ass kicked. Not legal, but completely understandable.

  32. KayLastima says:

    Interesting that she advocates physical violence toward paps while also tweeting just last week that perhaps those that have a diverse opinion on gender, sexual preference, or religion should be fired from their job as reporters, newspeople or radio personalities. Then she used social media to mean girl Leah’s “defection” from Scientology.

    I have one question – how dumb do you have to be to be a celebrity? As dumb as Kirstie, or dumber? It as I look at the social landscape I can say with almost certainty that the bar is indeed low and Kirstie is just one sad example of that fact.

  33. Funcakes says:

    Nice role model for her children.
