Kirstie Alley has revealed that appearing on “Dancing With The Stars” has helped her make quick progress on her weight loss goals. Alley had previously said that she hoped the series would help her to shed pounds – and has already dropped two dress sizes and is getting close to what she feels is her best look.
“I started out in a size 12, then an 8, and then I think next week I’ll be in a 6,” she said after her performance Monday night. “The real size I want to be in is probably a 4 or a 6. That’s where I look best.”
Alley has allegedly lost about 60 pounds already while performing on the show. Hopefully she can hang in the show a little longer as she reportedly wants to drop a few more pounds – One of her main motivations for reaching the final of Dancing with the Stars. She previously revealed that she hopes to appear on Broadway and in films to put her new found skills to use after the show. Alley, who once danced on Oprah Winfrey’s stage in a bikini after losing 75lbs, hinted that she might make a return appearance to the talk show maven’s studio to show off her body again.
“There aren’t that many Oprah shows left, but you never know,” she teased. “It’s whittling fast, and I’m dancing every day. Who knows?”
Alley has been shaking her tail feather with the sexy Maksim Chmerkovskiy (who dropped Alley after an injury a few weeks back), and she does look absolutely amazing… but a size 6? No way. Don’t get me wrong — I’m rooting for Kirstie, and any other woman who wants to get more fit and embrace a healthier lifestyle. There is no denying she is looking pretty good at the moment and oozing confidence, but there is absolutely no way that she’s wearing the same size as Jessica Simpson. However, it’s wonderful that she’s been so successful with weight loss at her age, considering her struggles in the past.
