A&E Becomes the Infomercial Channel with Kirstie Alley’s New Show

Kirstie Alley has a new reality show debuting in a month about how fat she is and how she wants to loose wight and be happy. And how she’s started her own weight loss company. So basically the A&E show is an informercial for her product line. At least A&E admits it:

One major theme in the series will be chronicling Kirstie’s comedic and unique take on her battle with weight loss, which coincides with the launch of her new weight loss company.

Yesterday Alley was on Oprah shilling her supplements

I’ve lost twenty pounds since January using them!

and oversharing about her obsession with Jamie Foxx who appeared via satellite and participated  a webcam make-out session with Alley. It was kinda gross.

But not as gross as Oprah and A&E acting like a Sham Wow pitch for Alley’s herb and mineral mixture.
