Kirstie Alley’s delusional numbers game: she’s now 130 pounds?


People Magazine did a photo shoot with Kirstie Alley in Italy – you can see one of the photos here, at People. Kirstie looks great in the shot, but… you can totally see how she’s cinched within an inch of her life AND that the photos are going to be using the “motherlode” function on Photoshop. It’s no big deal in and of itself – Kristie has every right to be proud of her weight loss, and she has every right to want to be photographed beautifully. The problem is with People Mag’s interview. When Kirstie speaks, delusion comes out. It was just last week that Kirstie told Entertainment Tonight that she lost “100 pounds” as she went from a size eight to a size 4. Tim Gunn even stepped up and tried to tell people that Kirstie is just delusional about vanity sizing, and now, in this new interview, Kristie continues the deceptions:

Rock that body, Kirstie! When Kirstie Alley cleared the 100 lb. weight-loss hurdle this summer, it was time for a big, fat celebration.

“When I hit that mark, I went, ‘That’s it!’ ” Alley tells PEOPLE during her stay in a villa outside Florence, Italy. “I have more energy than I’ve ever had in my whole life.”

While Alley’s weight has famously fluctuated in recent years, the actress, now 60, hit a wall two years ago.

“My body had gotten really weak,” says Alley, whose weight at that time hovered around 230 lbs. “There was nothing positive about being fat.”

By dancing daily after her dazzling appearance on Dancing with the Stars, where she finished second, changing to an organic diet and following Organic Liaison, her own weight-loss program, she’s turned her life around.

“I feel back to normal,” says Alley, now a proud size 6. “I have my game again.”

And she’s ready for her next challenge: “What I’m looking for is to be madly, deeply in love,” says Alley, who will also star in the upcoming ABC pilot, The Manzanis.

“For the first time in my life, I know exactly what I want in a man,” she says. “I want someone who has my back, who is courageous and brave.”

I’ll say it again: Kirstie has every right to be proud of herself and her weight loss, and I think it’s great that she’s doing the work to keep the weight off. None of that is the issue. The issue is that Kirstie is made of lies. Size 4, size 6, 230 pounds with a 100 pound weight loss, putting her at a current 130 pounds?!? Who believes these claims? NO ONE. But who will tell Kirstie to shut it? NO ONE. Is it because she’s insane? Or is it because it’s just easier for people to humor her?

Here’s another question – I would have no problem believing that Kristie lost a great deal of weight, but do you get the feeling that Kirstie was already so delusional about her size, and has been lying about it for years and years, so that now when she could step up and be honest about it, it doesn’t feel the same? Like, in Kristie’s mind, she was 200+ pounds and a stretchy size 10 (if that, in her mind), and she obviously lost 100 pounds and now she’s a size 4, only somewhere in the dark recesses of her conscience, she knows she’s been lying the whole time, and she can’t even be proud of herself.

    How tall is she? If she’s about my height (5’7″), then no effin’ way is she 130 lbs.

  2. It is ME!! says:


    Can’t she just be happy that she shed a lot of weight and is probably healthier than she was before? Why does this always have to be a numbers game?! GAH!!!

  3. Lisa says:

    I’m sorry…that’s 160-170 ALL DAY LONG!!

  4. Faye says:

    She definitely has some body dysmorphia going on, but if she’s continuing to maintain a healthy weight, I don’t care what she tells the world she weighs or what size she wears. She’s definitely a bit off, but I think she’s been looking damn good lately.

    That’s not to say I don’t think she’s missing an opportunity to reach out to women who are seeing her in the public eye or look up to her for her accomplishments. She definitely is. It’d be great if she could say, “Look, it’s not about numbers on the scale or on your jeans, it’s about being healthy and being happy with the way you look.” But like I said, she has body dysmorphia, or something.

  5. KS says:

    I am a few inches taller than she is, and around 135 and a size 2-4….there is just no way. I say that with certainty

  6. girlygirl says:

    She is delusional!

    If this woman was smart…she would be selling her age! This woman is 60 and looks amazing. You can see her age in her hands (last pic) but her skin and her hair are amazing! If I was her, I would focus on how young I look, not my delusional size.

  7. Kimbob says:

    I think I might can offer a plausible explanation here. What happened is that Kirstie is audited daily by Scientologists. There is absolutely NO WAY she can be stretching the truth…after all…she is hooked up w/an e-meter…this is all the truth.

    And if anybody believes this, I’ve got some mountain property in Florida for sale, too!

  8. Kiki says:

    Whatever the number may be… She loooks good.

  9. gee says:

    I believe she is about 160lbs and a size 10. Which is excellent considering she is 60 and 5’7. (It’s great even if she isn’t 60 and 5’7) It’s a healthy BMI and she looks great. It’s stupid that she lies.

  10. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I’m 5’7″ 120lbs (and a size 2 or 4 depending on the brand). If that’s what I look like, I think I need to have my eyes checked because that’s not what I see when I look in the mirror.

    Also, if anyone follows her on Twitter, she just addressed the fact that no one believes her claims. Something along the lines of “welcome to my dollhouse, where a size 6 is called a size 10” and “if I were bulimic I’d be a size 0, I smell a lawsuit.” I guess the tabs are saying she’s bulimic?

  11. Original Tiffany says:

    She is supposedly 5’10”, which means my height-5’9″. They always exaggerate that one while taking away some lbs.
    This is so NOT what 130 looks like on this tall of a body. Right, Atlantapug?
    I am 145/150 and a size 8. And way thinner than her. If I was 130, I would be a stick. As in, super thin.
    That is not the arm (second pic) or the body of a woman that is that weight. She isn’t skinny. She is fine, not skinny. It’s just not possible.
    She has crossed over into raving, delusional bitch-land. She insults people with actual weight losses and real stories of them ending up at a sane weight and size. Be fucking honest and maybe we will respect and believe you.
    You are a CO$ nut job. Nothing that ever comes out of your mouth again will be believed and I hope she turns into a whale again. Just for all these BS comments. Plus, she had lap-band surgery or we all know she would have blown back up like she has since Cheers.
    Sorry for the rant, but this makes me lose it. 130 my ass. Or maybe just her ass, but definitely not the whole deluded woman.

  12. Tierra says:

    Im curious how tall she is too b/c Im 5’8 and go btwn 130-135 and Im half her size.

    If she’s under 5’4 maybe, but I dont think she’s that short.

  13. ohcutemissa says:

    I’m 5’7, 143 pounds and a solid size 6. There is no freaking way.

  14. GiGi says:

    We are exactly the same height – 5’7. Because of my ballet past, I do have a more muscular body and I know that muscle weighs more than fat… but my measurements are 34-23-34, I weigh 140 and wear a size 26 jean. There is just no way she is being honest with herself. I think she really is closer to 180. She looks great, and kudos to her, but enough with the BS.

    I just read that Kim K. is 34-26-39 and says she can fit in a 27. Again. No way. In Hell.

  15. Original Tiffany says:

    Oh, also. The accepted norms are 100lbs for 5 feet and 5 pounds for every inch after. So, Kirstie would and should weigh 140. (roughly)
    130 makes her 10lbs. underweight or runway model thin. Does anyone see that? Anyone? Beuller???
    Just checked, she is almost 5’8″, still in ridiculous range and talk for what she looks like. Does she look underweight to ANYONE on this site? Further checking, this gives her a BMI of 19.8 which is really low. Such BS! The ironic thing is that she IS at an acceptable weight and BMI for her height-goes up to 165. Call like it is, woman!

  16. blc says:

    there is absolutely no way. She is a tall woman! I am 5’7 and I know she is taller than that. I weigh about 140 lbs and am much smaller than her. If she was actually a tall woman weighing 130 lbs she would be a skinny minny. And she is not. She is a liar.

  17. Lemon Drops says:

    I’m 5’7 and 180 and shes only a little smaller than me. I’m guessing 150-160 and theres nothing wrong with that.

  18. the other mel says:

    Aside from her delusions about her weight, which have been beautifully addressed by other posters, I find it hilarious that what she ‘wants in a man’ in basically a knight in shining armour. Yeah, bitch..don’t we all! I wish she’d stfu. She talks too much and it’s always about herself.

  19. kieslwoski says:

    This constant lying just takes away from her huge accomplishment, because she did loose a substantial amount of weight, and it makes her look like a fool.

    At least she no longer claims she is a size 4 she is now a 6 – yeah right. This woman is a size 10-12.

  20. Ruth says:

    Why cant she just be proud of the honest size she is- either way shes lost a whole lot of weight and looks great. Im 5’8.5 and 130lbs- and a US 2-4. She is not my size at all (you can count my ribs which annoys me) Its perfectly okay to be honest. Also being honest would lead to less “she regained all the weight” headlines when she is pictured in something unflattering.

  21. Cheyenne says:

    Maybe one of her legs weighs 130…

  22. MellaYellow says:

    No I’m 5’9 and 140 i’m like a size 6 no way!

  23. ladybert62 says:

    Kristie – good one – another joke for the day – honey, I am skinnier than you and I weight more than 130 pounds – do with that logic what you want!!! ha ha

  24. Pyewacket says:

    Her brain is 130 lbs, not her weight.

  25. Samigirl says:

    Since everyone is putting their measurments out there, I’m 5’7″, 200 (literally gained 10 pounds in the past week-I blame the pregnancy) and I’m a size 17. I know not all bodies are the same, but there is NO way she was ever a stretchy 10 before losing weight. At 230, she had to have been in plus sizes.

  26. lucy2 says:

    She looks great and probably feels great too. Too bad she’s focusing on false numbers and putting it out there for public judgement.
    If she really lost 100 lbs, she probably went from around 260-160, which seems pretty likely. And a great accomplishment.

  27. Nanea says:

    I’m 5’9, 125 pounds.

    I wonder in what parallel universe (Xenuverse?) Kirstie thinks she can get away with 130 while looking like she does.

    Of course she’s looking good for 60, but she’s still delusional about her body, or like @ Faye said, she is having an obvious issue with body dysmorphia.

  28. bc says:

    Um, no. I’m 5’2″ and 130 (and in the process of losing weight) and there is NO WAY. Granted, I have boobs and an ass, but so does she!

  29. Sue says:

    She is looking good but she is not 130 lbs.

  30. Kathy says:

    What is most amazing to me is that with the show Fat Actress aside, the past 15 years or so of her career have been almost entirely about her weight. I could have sworn her chosen profession was actress and not weight yo-yo.

    All of this attention on just her weight (which she has admittedly welcomed to some extent with her spokesperson jobs) is a shame, b/c she is a darn fine comedienne (sp?), whatever her size. It would be nice to see her return to tv with the right script and be done with all the weight talk once and for all.

    I don’t know what her real weight is, but I’m pretty sure if you drop 100lbs, you go down more than 4 sizes.

    And she looks great in the top photo.

  31. Kim says:

    I feel bad for her. She obviously has huge issues with weight. She is no where near a size 6 or 130 pds. Its to bad because she is doing a major disservice to women struggling with weight loss. She is in major denial.

  32. Hellen says:

    She could be such an inspiration for so many women: women over 50, women who want to lose weight, women who are battling with food and personal issues. SHE LOOKS GOOD, and I don’t mean “for her age” or whatever. Her weight loss is to be commended, and I have nothing but admiration for her willingness to go on DWTS and put herself out there.

    BUT – shut up with the delusional numbers game you are playing! Tell the world you don’t give a crap about sizes and numbers and pounds, that it’s ALL ABOUT feeling good, looking better, and taking care of yourself. I just want to smack her for playing that delusional numbers mindgame with herself and everybody else. Cuz she’s the only one buying it.

    Okay, off ths soapbox.

  33. 4Real says:

    Yeah how tall is she again?? I’m 5’9 and 139lbs…NO WAY she is 130lbs unless she’s 5’1 or 5’2 at the most.

  34. C-DUB says:

    She looks good. She should just enjoy the weightloss and folks need to let her enjoy it.

  35. Chris says:

    Kudos to her…but 158 is my guess.

  36. Joanna says:

    Okay, I’m 5 ft 7 in and 150 pounds and I look thinner in pictures than her. I wear a tight 8 or a 10.

  37. atlantapug says:

    She is supposedly 5′10″, which means my height-5′9″. They always exaggerate that one while taking away some lbs.
    This is so NOT what 130 looks like on this tall of a body. Right, Atlantapug?

    Rock on Tiffany!!!
    I also am 140lbs an about your height and I wear an 8. I also look about 40-50lbs smaller than Kirstie. One of her thighs = 2 of mine, unless I am the one with body dismorphia instead of Kirstie. (doubtful)

    Stop. Just stop. You appear beyond ridiculous and now seem delusional.

  38. Stacey says:

    I think her ‘claimed’ weight before the loss is the problem, I believe she has lost 100 lbs, but not from 230, she looked to be about 280 before and if she lost 100 it would put her around 180, which is what she looks like to me.
    She’s lied so many times about her weight, she can’t keep her story straight now.

  39. Ally says:

    @ comment#28….I’m 5’2″ and 131 lbs. I would say you and I probably look pretty damn good, and I’ve had 2 kids. She looks nice, yes, but I’d guess her weight at 160…

  40. F5 says:

    that’s how much she weighs on the Moon


  41. Serena says:

    Nicki Taylor- Supermodel- is 5’10” and 132 lbs (when she isn’t pregnant)

  42. tango says:

    Gosh, she’s looking like Fergie nowadays.

  43. Sue says:

    I really wish she would stop talking about what size she thinks she is, its tiresome and not fun anymore just sad and pathetic.

  44. JennJenn says:

    These laughable delusions are not a good sign. I will be very surprised if she is still the same size, whatever it is, a year from now.

  45. sally says:

    Kirstie has always been defensive about her weight. I remember during Cheers, people made fun of her about it. If I recall correctly, didn’t she say losing weight was one of the reasons she developed a pretty serious coke habit? At this point I think she finally is using all the negative attention to her advantage and is trying to sell her line of diet products.

  46. jacquie109 says:

    I want her scale!!!!

  47. Mi says:

    I think that she has done very well losing all that weight but she should be a little more honest with herself and with people. I’m 5’7 and weigh 154 pounds and there is no way I’m bigger then her. She has to be around 180.

  48. Mrs.Darcy says:

    I feel bad for her. Feeling compelled to shave 30-40lbs off your weight is not a good sign that she has a realistic, happy body image yet. Yeah, she’s an actress, they all shave off at least ten, but she cannot be serious. At her height, she could weigh 150-170ish (guestimating she’s at least that now) easily and look slim. I had a friend who was 5’11 and 180, yes she was curvy but you would not call her fat. As for adding 5lbs per inch above 5ft, puh-lease. That means my top weight is 125-30, something I have only ever achieved by extreme deprivation (yes I know some women are naturally skinny) whatever, when I weigh under 130 people think I’m ill, maybe it’s a body build thing. Anyway, I hope she works as hard at keeping her healthy, perfectly acceptable if not a size 4 bod, because setting ludicrous false expectations is a road to failure – which seriously, after the Oprah debacle, I would have hoped she’d grown a bit more mature and accepting after all these years of yo-yoing in the public eye. I don’t envy her that.

  49. wunderkindt says:

    Looks more like a 180-190 lbs pile of bricks.

    She’s ‘big boned’.

  50. djukagal says:

    I had to write in when i saw that she is my height (5’10’). i weigh 136, and i’m pretty thin. i can see a little bit of bone. although i do have some ‘assets’, they’re nothing like kristie’s. i’m guessing all of her bones are well padded. that’s not what 130 would look like. i agree with others: she should just revel in how young and healthy she looks. 🙂

  51. la chica says:

    Agree with wunderkindt. Kirstie weighs somewhere between 180 and 190 pounds, maybe even a bit more. Problem is she’s been lying for so long that she is trapped in her lies. Truth is she probably went from 300lbs to 200lbs or thereabouts. No shame in that. She should be proud.

  52. JaneWonderfalls says:

    She is probably 145lbs-160lbs because people don’t realize women can weigh depending on height and proportion, 160 and look fit and healthy. I think Kristie looks great but I rather her not say anything about her weight loss if she has to lie. She should just be proud of a job well done and not let people know her real weight, it’s really none of our business anyway.

  53. OfficialBitch says:

    LOL I”m 5’9.5 and a lean 144 and a size 4. Kirstie is insane.

  54. OfficialBitch says:

    @Serena as a former model, I know that models are told to take 10pounds off their weights lest it ‘scare’ people – even thought they are very tall so more weight should be expected. in reality – we are not 118lbs and 5’10 LOL. Niki is no wayyyy that thin. I’ve met her – she is ‘wider’ than I!

  55. Original Tiffany says:

    It’s really about BMI, normal range 19-25. She is giving hers at 19.8, this is on the extreme end of her acceptable range no matter how you slice it. And she ISN’T.
    The 5lb thing is a older formula, but it holds pretty true. They’ve revised the ranges up in the last 10-15 years.
    I’m happy for her, just wish she’d be honest. Like I said, I’m taller and at my heaviest when sick I was 235 and a size 20, lost 90 pounds back down to an 8. You can’t lose 100 and go from a 10 to a 4. Everything she says about her weight is so dishonest-that’s my issue. Why lie? Be proud of yourself for the truth! She’s an official dipshit.

  56. chicago girl says:

    I am her height (5’8″) with a similar build (heavier on the bottom) and have, during my adult life, swung between a size 4 to 22 (give or take depending the brand) due to health reasons. At a size 22, I was almost 280 lbs. At a size 4, I was about 105 lbs. 105 at that height is 20 lbs underweight. 130 lbs for a woman her (and my) height is at the lower end of a healthy weight, meaning that is quite thin. She looks much closer to 180-200 lbs and a size 16. She does a disservice to overweight women. She’s so focused on these extremely low numbers for weight/size when she should talk up how losing weight (in a healthy way) is a huge physical and mental health benefit. Focusing on those numbers rather than the goal of physical fitness and maintaining a healthy weight is way off.

  57. Memphis says:

    130lbs my ass.

  58. SHump76 says:

    She is out of her ever-loving mind. I am 5’4″ and 135 lbs. and am a US size 8. She is taller AND curvier than I am. She is clearly neither a size 4 or 130 lbs. Clinically insane? yes. 130 lbs? NO.

  59. liser says:

    maybe she says shes 130 pounds because she needs to convince herself to get to the goal of 130 pounds

  60. Jessica says:

    Im 5’10” and I am 145..and considered “Big Boned”.. no way

  61. V Pie says:

    I think she looks pretty good. You may be correct in that her weight isn’t as low as 130 BUT she is old, like what, 60? When you have major weight gains and losses like that things do not go back into the right places. I think she looks thinner then me and I’m 5’6″, 165 lbs at a size 10.

    Remember the camera puts on weight, and she prob has a lot of extra skin that makes her look flabby even though she lost a lot of fat. I don’t know if she’s SUPER delusional, I think she may have only stretched the truth by 10 or 15 lbs.

  62. pdwe says:

    I suspect she did lose 100 lbs. legit–she just didn’t start at 230 like she claims, probably more like 265. She looks good but she just needs to be honest about her weight already, it sends the wrong message to young girls. I remember when I was in high school I weighed around 140 at 5’9″ and I was doing every unhealthy diet I could to get down to 125 lbs. because I thought that sounded like a good weight and 140 sounded fat. Kirstie Alley’s lies perpetuate this type of thinking.

  63. chicago girl says:

    @pdwe You are very right. Kirstie’s obsession with these numbers is not a good message at all. Her nonsense is disgusting. She was probably around 130-ish when she was on Cheers, and she is nowhere near that small now. I guess it goes to show there is too much obsession with label sizes, scale numbers, and youth more so than losing weight and maintaining it in a healthy way. She is an awful role model for girls and women.

  64. Stan says:

    Rumor has it that Kirstie Alley posts as Cinderella on ClooneysOpenHouse blog. A small, gossip forum run by Clooney’s publicity team. It only has 300 or so members, so totally SMALL FRY..LOL
    And also, Kirstie Alley posts as PreferToRemainAnonymous on the imdB message board for George Clooney.
    Industry leak that came out recently.
    Has to do with her self-imposed exile when she weighed 300lbs and couldn’t do much.
    Ewwwwwww….. gross elderly woman that she is. Imagine all that loose saggy residual flesh hanging off her. Naked??? YIIIIKESSSSS!!!

  65. B says:

    Honestly, I think she looks amazing. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Why are people so concerned with if she’s lying about her weight or not. Granted, it’s no one’s business but her own.

    How about giving her props for taking care of herself? She looks the best she’s ever looked.

  66. Jolene says:

    To me, she looks like she’s a size 16. I looked like that when I was a size 16.. =/
