Still heavy Kirstie Alley does Zumba in Kansas (video)

Last week, the National Enquirer’s cover story was all about how Kirstie Alley hasn’t lost the fifty pounds she was bragging about last fall and was just as heavy as ever. The Enquirer had some blurry photos of Kirstie at a Zumba dance class in Wichita, Kansas to show Kirstie at her current weight, and wrote that Kirstie has “been hiding out in Kansas and Florida.” We may have found the source for the Enquirer’s photo. Reader BRE in Kansas sent us this video (above) of Kirstie participating in a huge Zumba class on New Year’s day at the local YMCA there. She also pointed out in a comment that “Everyone in Wichita, Kansas knows where she lives, it’s two houses away from the Scientology center in the nicer older area of town. She gets annoyed that people drive by her house but she is on a major road.

On the news segment, Kirstie explained that her sister is a zumba instructor in Wichita, and it sounds like she came out to support her. She seemed happy to talk to the cameraman, although Kirstie looked a little annoyed when she was being taped exercising. As for her weight loss (or lack thereof), she explained “I’m really interested in the journey this time rather than the race.”

I guess you can’t really say that Kirstie is “hiding out” if she’s openly talking to the local news. It does sound like she wanted a break from LA and the paparazzi and tried to achieve that by moving closer to her sister and the local office for her cult. She’s a piece of work but I have to give her a break for this. Maybe if Kirstie continues to stay in Kansas and Florida or wherever I’ll find her much more tolerable.

This video also made me want to try Zumba! It looks like so much fun.

In related news, Kirstie recently turned 60 and bragged that John Travolta came out and took her shopping. I’m sure he popped out to the spa afterwards and then headed to the local Scientology outlet for some tin can therapy.

    CB – Zumba is fun. I’ve been doing it for just over a year at my local gym and it’s a great workout.

  3. Rita says:

    I understand how Kristie feels about people driving by her house. I live near interstate 80.

    She could still be pretty, if she put in some effort of dressing right for her body type and a nice make up job.

    Mia Tyler is a plus size model and she’s freaking gorgeous (Steve Tyler’s oldest daughter, half-sib to Liv Tyler) because she knows how to dress to flatter her figure. I’d date her.

    I think KA looks way better at 60 than some of those Hollywood stick insects are going to look!!! Thin really doesn’t age well … (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!)

    original granny gave me & my sisters some lovely advice that i’d like to share with kirstie: never leave the house without lipstick and perfume.

    in kirstie’s case i’d like to add: and also brush your hair.

    60? Really? Whoa.

  13. Liana says:

    Love Zumba. Love it.

  14. Becky says:

    Even though she’s carrying some extra pounds she looks good for being 60. I think she’s entertaining-she’s always been kind of a character.

    Around age 60 is the cut off age for bariatric surgery. Kristy Alley should consider bariatric surgery if she has 75 to 100 pounds to lose to reach her ideal weight. Doctors are lowering the body mass index to allow for teenagers who are overwieght, and insurance companies are encouraging overweigt clients to get bariatric surgery so they will stay healthier longer, and cut cost for their long term health. – Hospitals in southern california are expanding new wings for the flood of new stomach surgeries so they can keep up with demand. Kristy would make a great example for this surgery.

    I have to call BS on Kirstie — she’s been selling this magic snake oil for a year and she’s still fat. She also recently released a very photoshopped “after” photo as “proof” that she lost 50 lbs on this stuff she’s selling, for $129 a month, which is basically just supplements anyone can buy for 75% less at GNC!
