Fat Actress Kirstie Alley has inked a development deal with
Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions. The actress, who recently left her role as spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, is discussing various TV projects with Oprah's company, including a possible talk show, says
Alley has appeared on Oprah's talk show several times over the years, including her famous disrobing after her weight loss, in which she strutted her stuff in a bikini. She says she hopes to create "something totally fresh" from the development relationship. Alley added, "I'm very open with what I've been through in my own personal life, and nothing - I mean nothing - is off-limits for me to talk about."
In addition to her TV plans, Alley also recently said she may be developing her own weight-loss program, promising to make a "fat America" fit.
The deal with Harpo isn't Alley's first step toward a possible talk show. The actress reportedly had inked a deal with another company in the past, but it never saw the airwaves. This time around, though, the former spokeswoman may be on her way to talk about other subjects besides weight loss. Any ideas what those would be? - Anna Dimond
