Will Kirstie Alley take Paula Abdul’s place on American Idol?

On Wednesday Kirstie Alley tweeted in that circa 1997 all-caps text that she favors that she’s somehow replacing Paula Abdul as a judge on American Idol. How this is even possible when Kirstie has no experience in music and is best known for an 1980s sitcom and her yo-yo weight is beyond me. It just goes to show how stupid producers must have been to let Paula go in the first place.

I really hope that if Alley had an actual chance to replace Paula on Idol she completely ruined it by posting the news on Twitter before an announcement was made. Kirstie’s rep confirmed to Radar Online that something was in the works with Idol, saying simply “She is ecstatic at the prospect.” Idol producers, put down whatever the hell you’re smoking and give Paula a call. Kiss her ass and offer her the $10 million a year that she supposedly wants. TMZ is reporting that Paula will be willing to continue negotiations if that amount is on the table. It will be a lot cheaper in the long run than hiring a public relations disaster like Kirstie.

Confirmed guest judges for next season include Victoria Beckham and Katy Perry. Maybe Kirstie is just confused and was only being asked if she would consider a guest judge position. After all, this is the woman who thought that the “Mother’s Act” bill to screen women for postpartum depression somehow included a provision for “BABIES HAVING PROZAC squirted in there [sic] eyes at birth to prevent depression later on,” as if that were even a remote possibility. Kirstie is a devout Scientologist and while she may superficially seem less crazy than Paula, at least Paula has extensive experience in the music industry.

    She could BE the entire judging panel by herself.

  2. bros says:

    oh come on! what does she have to do with anything? she’s a burnt out crazy demonfaced slovenly fatty.

  3. Bill Hicks is God says:

    She looks like she stinks of Marlboros and cat piss.

  4. Kaboom says:

    She’d take up at least two seats.

  5. Firestarter says:

    @Bill Hicks- HAHAHAHA! With that said, I have nothing to add.

  6. nanster says:

    What does Kirstie Alley know about the music business? IMHO, she would be a horrible replacement for Paula. Katy Perry (as a newbie in the business)would also be a bad choice and I don’t think Victoria Beckham would be much better. Does Posh have any talent beyond being in a manufactured girl group? Paula has bonfide hits and was a successful choreographer. I am still not certain that Paula’s leaving is not a publicity stunt to garner some much-needed attention for the next season of AI.

  7. Bill Hicks is God says:

    If they had a burp of sense over at Idol, they’d ask Shirley Jones.

  8. Cinderella says:

    It still amazes me how badly this woman let herself go.

  9. Mizz Expert says:

    WOW! This person is a walking advertisement for VILE! All the money in the world and she allows herself to step out in public like this??? Was anyone else horrified when Kathleen Turner showed up as the dog trainer in Marley & Me? How badly did she need to take that job instead of hiding in her cave with Kirstie Alley?

  10. bored says:

    I guess they wantede someone equally loopy for the role. Aren’t there any smart talented token females suitable for Idol judges? As if. The crazy factor is part of the marketing plan I’m sure.

  11. clare says:

    @9: I thought Kathleen Turner was a riot as the dog trainer in Marley and Me! She is respected in show biz, whereas Kirstie is a fat culty joke.

  12. Alison says:

    Kathleen Turner has not aged well because she has rheumatoid arthritis and has been on strong steriods for years and those are gnarly drugs that totally mess up your body. It’s not her fault. My mother’s body practically fell apart when she had to be on steroids for a long time because of a chronic condition.

  13. moo says:

    she-it – – – they would be better off with Courtney Love! maybe they should just have a “train wreck of the week” spot and change it up every time.

  14. Kevin says:

    Man Parker Stephens must be SO glad he got off the sinkin stinkin ship when he did. It’s hard to imagine that this is the same girl that was sooo hot in that Star Trek movie so long ago. I know that no one maintains that level for ever but DAMN!

  15. caryn says:

    WOW…without her makeup she is rather pathetic looking…bad choice for Idol…
    do they really need a 4th judge…after all up until last year…three was MORE than enough…maybe put Ryan at the judge’s table…make him earn some of his
    “millions”…haven’t figured out yet what he exactly does on that show that warrants him such big bucks…
    put some makeup on Kirstie and you can be a guest judge…might be fun…

  16. HaydenPantyairs says:

    Look what being off coke & on food has done to Kristy… And on Scientology! Bring on the crazy! Poor Kristy had such a pretty face too, but that’s shot to hell now. She sure looks mad!
    Her daughter is cute tho thank goodness. Those floor-length dresses only make K look scarier.

  17. Suzy says:

    what happened to Kirstie? She got all huge, went on Jenny Craig, got skinny, and now look at her…Her hair is a disaster, her outfit is awful…I agree with the guy that says she looks like she smells like cat piss and marlboros.
    I dont watch AI, but I just cannot believe how terrible she looks!

  18. Magsy says:

    I hope not. She wasn’t even a singer was she? What demographics are they trying to reach by having her big snagglepus ass sitting on the panel?

  19. british bitch says:

    She looks natural, not botoxed, plucked, starved, tweaked stretched and tweezed to death like the rest of your US celebutards.
