Kirstie Alley now claims to fit into size 4 and 6 dresses

Kirstie Alley recently spoke with EW about a fall she had during a rehearsal session on DWTS. I haven’t been watching the show since the first two weeks, but maybe I’ll tune in again now that they’re down to the last four contestants. (Spoiler alert, here’s a link to a story on who was just voted off.) Kirstie blamed her misstep on low blood sugar due to a 1,400 calorie a day diet, . 1,400 calories a day is fine if you exercise for an hour or less a day, but it doesn’t seem to be cutting it for the intense dance training sessions that Kirstie does. She also now claims that she fits into size 6 dresses and tried to up the ante by saying she also fits into a size 4! She admitted the dresses are “stretchy,” but there’s no way she’s even an 8 as she tried to claim last month. Still, she lost weight and she can really move it. She’s earned her place on the final four. Here’s what she said:

In case you missed it, [Kirstie’s fall off a stage] was featured during Monday’s Dancing with the Stars rehearsal footage of the couple’s sultry Argentine tango. She was supposed to jump off a few steps, but instead almost face planted onto the hardwood floors –causing yet another mega cringe-worthy moment for season 12.

Said Alley after the show, “When I fell off the stage, I [saw] three stairs below me and I started going into slow motion and in my mind, I go, ‘okay there are three stairs, you have on heels, jump bitch’ because you’re either going to break something or you’re going to take control of this and that’s why I jumped.”

The actress blamed the fall on lack of sleep and an inadequate amount of eats. “That day was a weird day because I hadn’t slept for two days and I guess my blood sugar had dropped,” she explained. “That rehearsal day was long, like seven hours or something. I didn’t realize I had forgotten to eat. I didn’t realize it was 5:30. I had breakfast, but time went like that because we had two dances to learn.”

The actress admitted to consuming only 1,400 calories, but has decided to take Chmerkovskiy’s advice by upping it to 2,000. “He’s probably right. Usually what I do to lose weight, I eat 1,400 calories, but I guess if I’m working out five or seven hours then you have to change it around a little bit,” said Alley, who wouldn’t reveal how many pounds she has lost since being on DWTS. She did say she is down to size 4 and 6 dresses but joked ”they’re sort of stretchy.”

While the actress’ third misfortune might have made viewers cringe, Alley said she “barely watched it” while waiting backstage. “It’s was sort of akin to Maks and I being Olympic skaters, just as we were warming up we were wiping out all the time. So I didn’t take it too seriously.”


Some commenters on EW are saying that Kirstie said she dropped 4-6 dress sizes, but if you read that quote carefully that doesn’t seem to be the case. She’s claiming to be a size 4-6. She’s only fooling herself if she thinks she’s a 4-6. (She won’t be the first or the last of course.) Either she’s stretching the truth to breaking point or someone is changing the labels in her clothes. She looks great and she has really impressed the public with her humor and skill on the dance floor this season. Still, the old grouchy cultmember Kirstie is there, daring us not to believe her hype.

  1. Ann says:

    Her assistants, etc., probably are under orders to put fake vanity size labels in her clothes.

  2. Happymom says:

    I’m with Ann. I’m a “big girl” too-tall and curvy-and I’d say she’s down to a 12. I think she looks so much better and healthier than before-but there is NO way in hell she’s a single digit size.

  3. Jessie says:

    She mend size 14-16, right?

  4. mia girl says:

    I was going to say the same thing that @Ann said. Someone is changing the tags on her dresses and she is delusional enough to believe it.

  5. Oi says:

    Please do something with that hair. Lohans looks about like that.

  6. lucy2 says:

    I saw this the other day and the quote I saw was her saying she could now wear a “stretchy 4-6” – to which I said no way. She’s looking good, but there’s just no way she’s a 4-6, and this seems to be her problem – focusing on unattainable vanity goals instead of making a lifestyle change.

  7. Delta Juliet says:


  8. Nanea says:

    Maybe she’d fit into size 4 and 6 dresses, if the seams were split and everything sewn back together to make another dress out of the initial four parts???

    Dunno, but that would be my interpretation of I now fit into dresses size four and six after seeing those pics of her.

    No way she’s even a 10 (4+6)

  9. Robinson says:

    She is a size 46 for sure.

  10. brin says:

    The only thing she’s stretching is the truth.

  11. garvels says:

    I don’t know what it is about this woman but she always manages to make me laugh. I hope she is in the finals. It would be quite entertaining to watch.

  12. dorothy says:

    No…she meant when she was in elementary school.

  13. Hautie says:

    Bless her heart. She is just out of her mind.

    I suspect she is probably a 12. And could squeeze into a 10 if there was Lycra involved.

    I also recall Oprah likes to claim that she is a 10.

    Odd thing is, no one is asking what size they are. But they are always offering to tell.

  14. Samigirl says:

    To quote my dear father in law, I’m throwing the bullsh*t flag.

  15. Alex says:

    I’m a 12-14 and skinnier than her.

  16. t says:

    There must be some store in Hollywood that caters to celebrities who are delusional about their size by labeling everything, no matter how big, a size 4.

    Kirstie, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Love Hewitt must all shop at The Size Four Store.

  17. Kasey says:

    @T- LMOL!

    Kimmy K, Jessica and JLH, I can all believe are a size 4 depending on the garment, material and make. Kirstie……not quite there yet. I could buy she’d fit into a stretchy 10 though-she DOES seem to have lost a lot of weight.

  18. fabgrrl says:

    Maybe she means that she can wear a size 6 top as a belt? You go, Kirstie.

  19. Sue says:

    I’m a size 2 no way is she 1 or 2 sizes bigger than me. I really wish she would stop lying about her size it’s just sad and makes her look pathetic.

  20. Aly says:

    I’ve always liked her, but this is getting tired. If she wants to be delusional then fine, but don’t assume the general public is naive enough to believe the delusions. I’d love to see her standing next to someone who is an actual six.

    I’m happy for her weight loss-however much-if it actually makes her a happier person.

  21. OtherChris says:

    I wouldn’t go less than a 14 unless you’re talking about a vanity size 12. Look how big is is in that second picture.

    At a certain age, it just becomes pitiful to be so focused on your weight. Can’t Xeno do something about that?

  22. someone says:

    Anyone can tell shes lost weight, but a size 6..really?? maybe a 10 or 12…

  23. Crash2GO2 says:

    She’s beautiful – look at how good her face looks for her age. Why is she so focused on her weight, to the point of making herself look ridiculous?

    I’m with Hautie.

  24. mia girl says:

    @T The Size Four Store – classic!
    I think its right next door to the “The Absolutely Not Plastic Surgery but Natural Approach To Aging Clinic”

  25. Wendy City says:

    She is delusional. There is no way she is even a 10/12. She use to say at her biggest she was 170 lbs!!! She was way over 200 lbs. I take everything that comes out of her mouth as a lie. She is easily 16/18. Don’t lie about it. What upsets me is she thinks that we are idiots and can’t see her for what she is. She just had her Scientology backed weight loss center grand opening ‘Organic Liasons’ So now she is going to push that crap on people knowing it doesnt work. Take people for their money and send it to Xenu.

  26. Lala11_7 says:

    Maybe babygirl is genetically predisposed to NOT see the “1” in front of the “14” and “16”…

  27. TeeTee says:

    she’s delusional. she sets herself up for criticism, cause now everyone is focused on her claim of being a size 6
    or a 4..

  28. Kaboom says:

    If they are made out of kevlar and she’s shot into them with an aircraft carrier catapult.

  29. GOMO says:

    Regardless of what size she is now she must do something with that hair…it is a mess. She looks like a Lion..brush it!!

  30. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    I think she’s a beautiful (albeit a little looney tunes) woman…but no way is she a 4 or a 6. I am guessing a 14/16….why does she feel so ashamed?

    I guess it is like C.C. Deville from Poison said…he was more accepted as a cocaine addict than when he gained weight. Sad state of affairs.

  31. NayNay says:

    Which one of her thighs is she referring too?

  32. Siren6 says:

    I really hate to be the lone dissenting voice out here, but I was at the Prince concert last weekend when Kirstie and Maks jumped on stage at the end with a lot of other audience members and danced a couple songs.

    I don’t know about 4 or 6, but Girlfriend looked *amazing* and is definitely not in double-digit sizes anymore.

  33. guesty says:

    She really has lost a lot of weight. Hope she keeps it off.

  34. Samihami says:

    She’s a 14-16. Who does she think she’s fooling? She should be happy that she’s slimmed down so much, but such an obvious lie just makes her look ridiculous. It’s a shame-she was probably a 24 or so before, so getting to a 16 is great!

  35. ThirdChris says:


    She’s delusional. That’s not to say she doesn’t look great, because I think she does. But highest weight 170?? F’ing please. I’d say she weighs about that right now.

  36. Tiffany says:

    I am tall and reasonably curvy, like a 10 bottom and 8 top and have been heavier in the midst of my thyroid illness.
    At least a 16, no smaller. I was never that big, and I have lost over 80.
    Not single digit sizes. she is like 5’10” or more. I’m one inch less, no way do I believe that. When I am single digit on bottom, I am thin because of my height. She is nowhere close to model thin. Haha!

  37. Mia says:

    Someone forgot the 1 in front of that 4 & 6.

  38. Masque says:

    The sad thing is as long as she is in denial about her size/measurements, she will continue to yo-yo her weight. Until she lets go of what she thinks other people think of her body, she will never accept her body and will continue to have weight problems.

    She seems to be trapped in that false humility some women adopt because they are afraid if they just say “thank you” to a compliment it will make them look conceited. Combine that with her desperation to be the skinny girl again and you have someone who waffles back and forth between the false humility and the lying about her size.

    She should just focus on the fact that she’s being pro-active in her health/weight, proud of the results and enjoy the (inevitable) compliments. 99% of humanoids don’t give a damn about what size she is. I hope someday she’ll let go of that obsession, too.

  39. dovesgate says:

    I could see her being an 8/10 at the least. In stretchy clothes. Unless someone is using the vanity labels people have already mentioned.

    I have to give her the benefit of the doubt… I could say I’m a size 1 when anyone who looks at me would assume there are numbers missing. Ever notice that big girl stores have changed their sizes from 12/14, 16/18 to 1, 2, 3 etc?

    If I recall correctly, 16/18 = 2 in a place like Torrid. Lane Bryant’s sizing is weird too. I fit into 14 & 16 in that store (the 2 smallest sizes) and there are lots of 14s that are too big for me. Yet if I were to go to Forever 21 or Old Navy, the XL’s still don’t fit me correctly (and thankfully, XXL is too big. Yay!)

    I can’t fault her for crowing about her weight loss. I think most fat women do. I know I do. I know my big friends do. We know what we look like when we are big. We are aware of our cottage cheese thighs, lumpy butts, sausage arms, and Buddha bellies. When we are able to lose some of it, we tell the world whether you want to know or not. Its like saying “I know I’m disgusting but I’m trying to change! Here is proof!” Sad yes, but most of society tells us we fat people are disgusting, unhealthy pieces of crap who are not worthy of fitting in and the few people who preach fat acceptance are themselves fat and therefore as ostracized as the rest of us fat folk.

  40. DGO says:

    This is just one of the reasons why I can’t stand her. I don’t believe anything that comes out of her mouth. I also don’t like the subtle Scientology reminders on DWTS, like John Travolta’s beard sitting in the audience. I think the shoe thing was fake, too, and that Kirstie’s going the sympathy route for votes. My two cents.

  41. Judy says:

    She looks amazing…she has lost a lot of weight, but I’m not liking her so much anymore because of her delusional bragging, and I also think she acts incredibly immature.

  42. Novaraen says:

    She looks really good and has lost a lot of weight…but she is definitely a size 14 not a 4. There is no way those thighs and tummy of hers fit into a size 4(even if it’s “stretchy”)

    It does seems like she is starving herself…she looks so out of it. Obviously she isn’t getting proper nutrition.

  43. Bobbie says:

    About 3 years ago, I lost 50 pounds. Part of my former weight problem was lying to myself about my size, etc. I have kept the weight off and I do weigh myself every week. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t which is a check. This girl is delusional about her weight. I am 5 ft, 8 in tall and weigh between 135 and 140. I am usually a size 8, maybe a size 6 in some stores. She is not.

  44. LunaT says:

    I am laughing. I’m 5’7″, 135, and might fit into a 4 or 6. Might.

  45. The Bobster says:

    She’ll fit into a 4 and a 6 ….. if you sew them together.

  46. jc126 says:

    I tend to agree with #38 that her delusions are why she yo-yos with her weight. She looks great, and maybe it will finally dawn on her that she has to EXERCISE, not just attempt to diet. I hope she keeps it up, and that she darkens her hair, she looks so good as a brunette.

  47. ZenB says:

    She’s lost a lot of weight. You can actually see her collarbones and she has some muscle definition on her shoulders. Good for her, but why does she need to talk about size? If she said “I lost 50 lbs” or whatever, she would be correct and admired even if she is still over 200.

    I’m worried that some poor overweight girl somewhere with body dysmorphia will believe KA is a 6, and think that she is hopeless at a 12 and do something bad to herself.

  48. Eleonor says:

    I totally believe it, she’s a size 4-6 if you consider her according to Kardashian fake rules of sizes.

  49. ZenB says:

    @the bobster – oh hell no, isn’t that a 10 (or at least a 14). LOL! Seriously, Kirstie is toning but her butt is bigger than my size 14 butt.

    She and I are opposite body types: as I lose weight my hips narrow; as she loses weight her shoulders narrow.

    She dreams of seeing her hipbones like I dream of seeing my collarbones. I can feel my hipbones coming in. LOL

  50. DesertRose says:

    She’s funny, proclaiming these sizes just so we’ll talk about how crazy she is =) I am 5’10”, 190 lbs, I think my body is similar to hers, other than I don’t have as much booty, and I wear anywhere from a 14-18 depending on the label.

  51. wunderkindt says:

    Looks like a size 16 and over 200lbs.

    Kirsti needs serious pyschological help. The chick is beyond deluded!

  52. bagladey says:

    Kirstie better stop; she’s making herself look stupid. Kirstie’s not losing a dress size a week anymore and she still looks like a size 14. Kirstie is never, ever going to be a REAL size 4, or even a 6, and why is she aiming for that? She sounds like an immature silly old fool.

  53. flourpot says:

    LA size chart’s must differ from the rest of the worlds. And I mean that sincerely.

  54. Kiska says:

    Clearly she is delusional. There is no frigging way she fits a dress smaller than a 12.

  55. Bopa says:

    She looks great but she’s no where near a size 6. She couldn’t fit a size 4 on one of her legs.

  56. TXCinderella says:

    More like a 12 or 14. She still has big hips and a poochy belly, and you don’t have that with her height at a size 4 or 6.

  57. lilred says:

    She looks great,except for that cream monstrosity she is wearing…Jessica Simpson wore a similar dress for the Project Runway Finale and looked ginormous also that style is aweful.

  58. KCT says:

    Sizes mean nothing. It’s how you dress, groom, and carry yourself that makes you beautiful no matter if you are a size 4 or 14, plus keeping your obnoxious mouth shut.

  59. Ron says:

    She fits into a 4 or 6 at Chico’s.

  60. skibunny says:

    Kaboom your comment was hilarious!

  61. Spring says:

    Last night I was thinking, “She’s definitely lost some weight.”
    Now that she’s lying about being a 4 or a 6, I’m thinking “She’s definitely still ENORMOUS.”

  62. Amanda G says:

    Why do celebs say what size they are? It’s just asking for comments and judgement. I think she looks fabulous and I like her shape.

  63. Dromedary says:


  64. Solveig says:

    Don’t care what’s her weight and size, she looks good for a 60 years old.
    I’m pretty sure she’s had some work done on her face, but it looks natural and subtle.

  65. sluggo says:

    “Either she’s stretching the truth to breaking point …” More like she’s stretching a DRESS to breaking point!

    Ain’t no way NO WAY NO HOW she is a 4 or a 6. It’s great that Kirstie’s lost weight, especially since she’s over the age of 45; I know how difficult that can be, I’m 51, and I gotta fight for every damn pound of weight loss. But it can be done, and she’s done it.

    However: she does herself no favors whatsoever by claiming this “size 6, no wait, it’s size 4″ bushwah. I dropped from a size 16 to a size 9/10, I’m 5’6” and weigh 150. Sometimes you can claim to wear a much-smaller size if it’s a TOP — I can squeeze into size 4 but I have no rack to speak of, and girlfriend here HAS got a rack.

    One more piece of snark and I’ll shut up: All I ever hear or see is “Kirstie fell, Kirstie slipped, Kirstie floored Maks, Kirstie lost a shoe,” blahblahblah. So what can she do next and STILL win, as seems to be the case?

  66. Maritza says:

    I think she likes to create controversy about her size, she knows she is not a size 6 and much less a 4, she likes to keep people guessing! I say she is a size 14-16. She does look fabulous for her age.

  67. sally says:

    She has been lying to herself (and the rest of us who listen) about her weight and size since her Cheers days. I think it’s part of her charm.

  68. Kat says:

    Look out, Lindsay! We have a contender poised to snatch your “Most Crazy-Ass Delusional Famewhore” title.

    Size 4, my ass.

  69. Joe's Mom says:

    She is lucky that she still has a beautiful face and she deserves a beautiful bod to go with it. I hope she keeps up her routine and loses the rest of the weight after DWTS. She hasn’t got too far to go now, and she’s probably motivating a lot of women out there to get it together and look their best. Go Kirstie!

  70. Jennifer says:

    One of her thighs wouldn’t fit into the waiste of a size 4-6 pair of jeans.

  71. Az says:

    There is no way on Earth this woman fits into a 4/6. No. Way. Maybe it’s not an Earth 4/6? Alien sizes are bigger maybe?

  72. Cat says:

    I’d be happy if she just washed her fucking hair. It looks disgusting and she is, and will forever be, trashy.

  73. journey says:

    i still say there’re little scientology minions slaving away in her basement sewing up her clothes and putting those size 4 and 6 labels in them. if they put a larger size label in her clothes she punishes them by taking away their daily gruel.

  74. Caz says:

    I like her and she looks fantastic, in the same way that morbidly obese people on Biggest Loser do when they lose all that unhealthy weight. They can’t help but look better. She needs to work on her psychological issues…unless this 4/6 size nonsense is her publicist’s way of creating interest in her to coincide with her still being on DWTS.

  75. dj says:

    Kirstie is a beautiful full-figured woman. She was so striking with dark hair and light eyes in the 1980s. (I hate the blonde barbie weave). I saw her on “Ellen” and she does not sound stable at all. Delusional is an understatement and I say minimum a 16.

  76. Kelly says:

    She’s a very funny woman and I have loved watching her on DWTS. She really can dance! And she’s 62?! Why on earth is she not celebrating that? Why does she dwell on the number on the scale? So sad.

  77. Kim says:

    She has lost a lot of weight and i do appreciate that she jokes about the size 6 dress she fits into being stretchy. She looks good but is not a size 4 or 6.

  78. Juu says:

    What’s the point of saying you’re a 6 when you look like a 12? It would make sense if you’re 12 and look like a 6, but I can’t get why it’s important to obviously fat people to tell us they can fit small sized clothes. It’s not like we can’t see her.

  79. Cheyenne says:

    If she’s a 4/6 I’m a minus-8. Why in the world doesn’t she just own up to her true size? She looks damn good and she ought to accept the size she is.

  80. Sal says:

    I think she looks totally trashy and at least a 14. She is also not the greatest dancer, way better people have been voted off. I wonder if it’s like American Idol when people were purposelly voting for the worst to screw up the competition?…..

  81. Judy says:

    She’s 60–not 62. But I agree she sounded almost incoherent on Ellen–she’s very hard to follow. I like her, but talking to her would wear me out.

  82. Katherine M. says:

    I am 5 ft tall. When I am at 104 up to 108 or 110 I am a size 4. Size 2 top fits. But once over 108 or 110 I am up to a Size 6 and Size 8 is hit around 120 or before. Small sizes are very unforgiving unless they are mumus or some design where size doesn’t matter. She is not delusional. She is a liar. Or she needs glasses.

    I admire her losing weight though she’s had a LOT of help. I gained a lot of weight in my mid-40s and it took me about 18 months to slowly and in a very healthy way take it all off back to Size 4 and 6. Except for WW I had no help and just worked out with weights and an old video at home. Good luck to anyone who finds themselves gaining with the years. If you’ve never had a battle with weight then it can come as a shock when you realize what has happened when your metabolism turns on you. But getting back in shape is very doable even without the outward resources of a Kirstie Alley. Your inner resources are more important.

  83. Katherine M. says:

    “What’s the point of saying you’re a 6 when you look like a 12? . . . It’s not like we can’t see her.”

    Hilarious! Perfect response.

  84. sandy says:

    no way, no how. me thinks she is very delusional

  85. eternalcanadian says:

    I’m sure that’s a typo, meant to be size 14 to 16. 😛

  86. Micki says:

    And I’m the next Pavlova

  87. Iris says:

    I’m 1.61m and 62 kg’s and a size ten. Not a chance!

  88. crtb says:

    She meant 4X6

  89. Estella says:

    This fat, crazy bee is not a size 4 or 6! I am a size 4 at 5’10 and 135 lbs. I would say someone like Uma Thurman is a size 4. And Kirstie is NO Uma Thurman.

  90. RHONYC says:


    she’s only playing the ‘Jennifer-Hudson-imma-size-10-but-say-imma-size-4’ game.


  91. Arcadia says:

    Kristie Alley is in MAJOR DENIAL! She is about 200 pounds (NOW) and her dress size is an 16-18. Why lie about this? It is what it is!

  92. anjie says:

    well I guess its her own business but kinda sad that no one around her is giving her a reality check- she may have lost 100 pounds and maybe she should let it be at that but I would say she is a perfect size 14- not sur eof her height but she looks to me to be about 180 and a size 14….hard to tell without knowing her exact eight-
    Whatever she is its such a great and difficult thing to have lost the weight- But someone should not allow her to go back on Oprah Winfrey and have everyone feel shock at the unveiling of he rnew bikini body- that’s crazy- remember when she did that and there were gasps in the audience from disbelief- why would Oprah Winfrey allow her to be humiliated in that way….ratings, I guess….

  93. ellen says:

    No way that Kirstie is the size she says
    she is…More like a 14 or alittle higher

  94. Christina says:

    There is no way she is a size 6 !!! Why would she put herself out there and lie!! At best she is a size 14!! I wish she would stand beside a woman who is a size 6!!! I have noticed she never wears a revealing costume on DWTS like some of the other “skinny” dancers do, I wonder why?????????????? She is a big boned girl, she would never fit into a size 6!!
