NEWS FLASH! Jenny Craig fires Kirstie Alley for weight gain - hires Queen Latifah as replacement, spinning "health"
YES, IT IS FOOD ADDICTION - and Kirstie is a Food Addict, just like ME, and countless others. So, so, so many others. She was paid millions. The spokesperson at Jenny Craig says that Kirsten Jane Alley is grateful, and she is going to move on, she will ....just no longer... be the face of Jenny. I just hope she will acknowledge the addiction to food is the genuine article (it is! OH MY GOD!) and get in a program of some type. There are lot's of them in Hollywood. I am not sure how Scientology deals with the food stuff, and I cannot/should not take Kirstie's 'inventory' on my blog*
and to quote Linda Ellerbee, an open alcoholic, "and so it goes."
FOX NEWS REPORTS:
CHICAGO — Kirstie Alley won’t be calling Jenny anytime soon.
The former "Cheers" actress is stepping down as Jenny Craig spokesmodel after three years with the company, People magazine reported on Friday.
Alley lost 75 pounds and kept that weight off for more than a year during her stint with Jenny Craig, Scott Parker, vice president of marketing for the company, told People.
"Although Kirstie will not appear in future advertising endeavors for us, she does remain on Jenny Craig's maintenance program and is confident that our program has helped her incorporate positive lifestyle changes that should last a lifetime," he said. (((((He's spinning it, baby! Damage control! He has to. They made sooooo much money on her zaftig ass!! But if you gain weight, how do you stay "poster child"? My take: You see, people need to eat REAL food. Not "Jenny" food!-- and people that do not do due dilligence gain - lose. We are addicted to flour - sugar - substances. uh oh. Not my place to editorialize --combat this here, is it?)))))
Actress and singer Queen Latifah has joined Valerie Bertinelli as a celebrity spokeswoman for the company.
An ad on the Jenny Craig Web site featuring Latifah states: "I’m taking the first step toward improving my health with Jenny Craig."
