Is Kirstie Alley’s new weight loss “program” a front for Scientology?

kirstie2
Kirstie Alley has launched a new weight loss program called “Organic Liaison” that primarily consists of vitamins and supplements and a $10/month “membership” program for access to vague “online tools and community support.” Kirstie has promised to come out with some kind of weight loss plan for years, and now it’s available. According to videos she’s posting on Organic Liason, it’s “the first certified organic weight loss and management system in the world.” The products have names like “Rescue Me,” and “Relieve Me,” and promise to be “natural” cleansers and to help fight hunger and cravings. Kirstie claims that they will “flood your body with the missing elements that make weight loss an uphill battle.” The thing is, the ingredients are typical vitamins and minerals and we have to take Kirstie’s word for it that the $12-$15 bottles are better than the same organic supplements available at the local health food store. Plus you can get all those “elements” in food if you plan your meals right and eat healthy.

That’s a good gimmick, but there’s nothing new about a bunch of supplements. Kirstie is a known Scientologist and many members of the group Anonymous are pointing out that Organic Liaison has the same address as a known Scientology front company and has advisory members that are easily identified as Scientologists. Are those vitamins and minerals L. Ron Hubbard approved?

[From comment on RantRave.com]

I would have a lot more respect for Kirstie Alley if she wasn’t shilling vitamins. You can bet that the “online tools and community support” are heavily laden with Scientology concepts. I’m not going to say anything about how Scientology hasn’t helped Kirstie so far. It just seems strange that she’s launching a weight loss program when she’s only lost 20 pounds so far, though. It’s also a real concern that they’re going to market Scientology to people who innocently try and buy supplements to lose weight.

The 230 pound star was on Oprah yesterday to promote her new reality show Big Life, premiering on A&E in March. She also put in a plug for Organic Liaison. Kirstie says in a clip from the show that she needs to lose 90 pounds and would like to get back to 140. (She told Oprah she’s lost 20 pounds in 7 weeks, so maybe she’s 210 now.)

I watched Kirstie on Oprah and found her mildly funny, especially when she was talking about how she wanted a booty call with Jamie Foxx. Foxx appeared via satellite and gave Kirstie a special message. The best part was when she went back to kiss the screen where he was on and he started undulating his tongue. The audience was roaring laughing. Jamie told Kirstie he would be her booty call and that “You’re absolutely beautiful. Don’t worry about how much you weigh.. Don’t worry about a thing, just be you. Fantastically you.”

    why would anyone give her money for a weight loss program? would you give tiger woods money for a marriage workshop?

  2. Cyrenity says:

    Of course it’s a front for Scientology. What I want to know is, if Scientology is so damned helpful and life-altering, why is she always screwing up? She’s lost the weight before, then gained it back, then lost it, gained it back – it never ends! She’s the last person I’d take diet advice from.

  3. No Sensei says:

    ha! she matches the frame of her own website…

  4. oc says:

    “the first certified organic weight loss and management system in the world.”

    certified by whom?

  5. Kayleigh says:

    lol @ lmae. I’ll believe it when she’s a size 6.
    Sure it’s for Scientology. These people’s whole lives are dedicated to the church, for what was it? A million years? So duh, all that money is going into that crazy machine of a church.

  6. Kevin says:

    She needs to lose lard because even Xenu’s flying saucer has a weight limit.

  7. Novaraen says:

    I think she’s sorta wacky and cool….aside from the scientology junk.

    BUT…I would not take diet advice from her.

  8. viper says:

    The day she becomes qualified to give weightloss advice is the the day when heavens down there V hells up there ^ it’s raining monkeys and hashish is now a household beverage.

  9. TaylorB says:

    She is just so charming, smart, kind, respectful and together it is obvious why her advice is golden.

    Nahhhhh, just kidding.

  10. FrenchToast says:

    Supplements for “the missing elements” ??? It’s usually emotional eating issues because people are unhappy. No expensive pills are going to address that.

  11. juiceinla says:

    everyone’s comments here are hilarious! I just kept thinking “OOOOOpraah is gonna be pizzed if Kirstie Alley used her to hawk Scientology.”

    Then I wondered: What/who is worse to pizz off: Xenu or Oprah?

  12. Ron says:

    Well Oprah’s super best friend John Travolta is a Scientolofreak so I am sure whe has listened to the spiel before. And Kirstie, vitamins..organic..weigh loss program…from YOU…..
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  13. simplicity says:

    I’d agree on Kristie not being the best example of weight loss. How long did she keep from gaining after the last time, 15 minutes?

    A monthly fee to belong to her special club, lmao.

  14. ElizabethM says:

    I think Kirstie is pretty funny but I wouldn’t take diet/health advice from her anymore than I would take how-to-be-charming advice from Goopy Paltrow.

  15. daisyfly says:

    “The products have names like “Rescue Me,” and “Relieve Me,” and promise to be “natural” cleansers and to help fight hunger and cravings.”

    Bitch please. You know you write “eat me” and “devour me” on those bottles. The only way I’ll be convinced that she had any hand in this in a personal way is if the bottles themselves are edible.

    And as to the question – does a bear shit in the woods?

  16. margo says:

    LOL! You guys had me cracking up today!!

    Went to whyweprotest.net and read the FAIR GAME section-this supposed “CHURCH” is a crime syndicate!! Strong-arming, murder, extortion-holy crap

    Can we get the U.S government to pay attention to the tax free status??

    How many churches attack their critics? Stalk journalists and “ruin utterly with lawsuits”-OMG!!!

  17. Peach says:

    Is cleansing just a fancy word for laxatives? That’s what it seems like.

  18. Kim says:

    I was about half paying attention to Oprah when Kirstie was on it. I did notice Kirstie being extremely vague when Oprah was asking for concrete information on how this “system” works. She asked Kirstie what she eats about 10 times before getting a response. If you’re going on Oprah to promote any somewhat-legitimate program, you’d think that’d be the first bit of information you’d rehearse. The whole thing seemed fishy.

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    Oh, the shame. You sign up for weight loss AND SCIENTOLOGY.

  20. Hautie says:

    I also love her. And if she really wanted to lose the weight and maintain it… she would have the lap band done and get it over with.

    But she likes eating and that is fine. Just be who you want to be.

    Just don’t try to tell me that you have the “cure” for losing weight while you are still at 200+. haha!

  21. GatsbyGal says:

    “…many members of the group Anonymous are pointing out that Organic Liaison has the same address as a known Scientology front company…”

    Anonymous strikes again. Gotta love ‘em and their tireless battle against the epic lie that is Scientology.

  22. annie says:

    Scientology is probably financially in this program to keep Kirstie’s mouth shut. She knows a lot about their big celebrities.

  23. annie says:

    ugh – everytime I glance up at her photos I see Ursula from The Little Mermaid…………..scary!

  24. HeartBrangelina says:

    Drinking vitamin ‘cleansers’ is not going to keep a fat person from eating. There’s a reason they got that way in the first place. Loosing weight is hard, there is no quick fix.

  25. Shay says:

    I won’t be giving them any of my money. Mainly of course because the $cino won’t see a dime of my money but also the fact that Kristie has been in it for over 20 years and they haven’t helped her lose weight.

  26. Majosha says:

    Kevin: Maybe she’s hawking this diet thing to pay for two seats on the spaceship, so she doesn’t get Kevin Smith’d at the last minute.

  27. Ednonymous says:

    Who says oprah isn’t a scientolofreak?

  28. Lisa says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the name of this “system”/”club”/Scientology front is LAME? “Organic Liaison”? Seriously?? It sounds bad AND when you analyze its meaning, it gets even worse.

  29. Ariel says:

    She should not be promoting any kind of weight loss products or programs until she has kept the weight off for at least 2 yeas.

  30. Maritza says:

    I totally agree with Ariel.

  31. Mingo says:

    Do people from other planets need a weight loss system? Is gravity the same on Xenu? Look at John Travolta then Kirstie Alley. Need I say more?

  32. Bete says:

    Anyone buying her wares is an idiot.
    One glimpse at her tweets and one can see what a nutjob she is.

  33. Mary says:

    “the first certified organic weight loss and management system in the world.”

    Reminds me of Herbalife. It was supposed to be organic.

  34. Blitz says:

    Whenever Scientologists “help” people, with vitamins or drugs (oh yes they DO) it’s always an inferior if not incompetent take on something available elsewhere, and lacks the needed complexity to implement it well. In any case don’t give your money to anything that supports this dangerous cult.

    If they understood how diet relates to health, would Suri- spawn of the world’s most famous Scientologist – and Katie be shoveling sugary treats down their palettes every waking hour?

    Health and Scientology don’t belong together in the same sentence.

  35. steve says:

    for several years, I drove thru the Clearwater area of these goofs every morning, 5 days a week.
    Watched the uniformed dressed zombies going to class, no expressions, just dead looking no-brainers.
    Hundreds of them!
    Tom Cruise cannot read or write….
    Katie is a captive dumbass.
    Surie is a spoiled little brat who has no idea who her father is.
    Tommy is gay.
    L. Ron is dead, but still has an office and a place setting at every meal.
    Now who is nuts?

  36. Lay-Low says:

    Too bad she’s not gay. They seem to be a much better front-group for the closet than weight-loss.

    …John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Will Smith…can you hear me?! You don’t fool anyone, ‘cept a couple of desperate midwestern housewives who still think a “nice boy” like that wouldn’t be into licking hole.

    Ha.

  37. Mary says:

    LMAO Steve.
    It’s so true. To think, most people follow celebrities like gods and most celebrities display below average intelligence. This is the new circus.

  38. SammyJo says:

    She went from being a cokehead with Parker Stevenson to a food addict alone/off coke. Just an addiction switch.

  39. Sunnyjyl says:

    I can’t get enough of Kooky Kirsty. I hope she doesn’t kill anybody with her vague new diet. I wouldn’t like to see her in an orange jumpsuit. Not a good look for her.

  40. CB Rawks says:

    “Relieve Me”? Ew.

    Also, totally stupid company name!

  41. CeeCee12 says:

    She is not well in the head.
    I know when I need to lose a few the first person I call is the fattest person I know.

  42. Karen White says:

    Looking at the product Kirsties
    Organic Liaison is looks a Recycled “Scientology”Elixir called Cal-Mag its mainly extremely large dose of Calcium and Magnesium and a citric acid. its like a heavy duty laxative.
    that the serve to people in their Narconon drug program and serve to young people in their Sea Org.

    exercising eating fresh fruit and vegetables and fiber is the way to go
    I wouldn’t consider Cal Mag Organic
    No Thanks

  43. Green Is Good says:

    *eye roll* Yeah. People are really going to take weight loss advice from a woman who’s ballooned up and down the scale by at least 150 pounds.

  44. gabbymellow says:

    There’s a thread for this on ‘why we protest’. i lurked there a bit and i’ve never laughed so much. they take each supplement and throughly debunk the benefits of each one.

  45. skeptical says:

    heehee i do like Anonymous… they do their research and their reports are hilarious to read. i tend to love their humor.

    sadly i’ll never meet the anons.. my city is in the top 10 impoverished cities in my country.. no scilons here for anons to protest!!

  46. Karen White says:

    W.I.S.E is an acronym for World Institute of Scientology Enterprises is is a business recruitment arm of the Cult
    all businesses Who are affiliated With WISE give 10 to 15% of their profits to Scientology it is very lucrative for the cult.I did google Saul Lipson its a an accountant firm and a member of WISE
    so any money they make 10-15% goes to The Church of Scientology
    Organic Liaisons Customer service offices
    are run out of the W.I.S.E corporate building at another address
    Customer Service:
    (800) 513-5201
    (800) 604-0280 phax
    639 Cleveland Street Ste 345

    support@organicliaison.com

    Corporate Office:
    639 Cleveland St. Suite 345
    Clearwater, FL 33755
    in downtown Clearwater so any money they make from Organic Liaison 10-15% goes Directly to Scientology

    so yes I guess that means if you buy her product your Supporting the Cult

  47. J. T. says:

    Disappointing. Had the Scientology association been addressed up front it would be a whole other issue. However, given the sneakiness of it all it only confirms what an oddball group they really are. Always sneaking and lurking. Not good. Not good at all.

  48. Herbalife says:

    Well, Kirstie looks amazing in her website. If she wants to help people achieve their dreams, why not?

  49. Bigon says:

    Pretty well written, and also your points are very close to my own. Regards.

  50. Hey. Your blog rocks. I love your great blog. Keep posting more please.

  51. super slim says:
