Kirstie Dances Off the Pounds

8 November 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Cheers star Kirstie Alley has danced off the pounds on her way to a new figure by hiring Madonna and Usher's choreographers. The one-time heavyweight claims to have lost a whopping 55 pounds dancing with Hollywood teachers Rich & Fly, and she's urging other fatties to don their high heels and take to the dance floor. Alley, who once weighed a whopping 219 pounds says, "I really wanted to celebrate that I've gotten thinner and these guys are just brilliant. They choreograph Usher and J.Lo. I really love doing this. It just makes you feel like you're in a celebration." Alley and her choreographers are now working on a high-energy dance work-out video - and she insists it will encourage fans to look good while they boogie. She explains, "You never see a stripper in flip-flops... and that's because flat-footed looks like ducks and flat-footed doesn't make people feel sexy." Meanwhile, the actress aims to lose another 25-35 pounds. »

Alley Dating Pacino?

13 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Cheers star Kirstie Alley has been romantically linked to a new man - Hollywood icon Al Pacino. The 54-year-old actress, who has been single since splitting from James Wilder five years ago, was spotted out with Pacino, 65, in Hollywood, and onlookers say that, although the couple were with friends, their rendezvous had all the makings of a romantic date. A source tells America's Star magazine, "They were huddled for the whole evening at the Chateau Marmont, and, at one point, Kirstie was stroking his thigh as she talked to him. It was bizarre. They totally looked as if they were on a date." Representatives for the screen stars have yet to comment. »

Harrelson & Wife Expecting Third Child

13 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Cheers star Woody Harrelson has announced that he and his wife Laura are expecting their third child. On Tuesday night, Harrelson went against his wife's wishes and announced the good news a few weeks too early, during an appearance on comedian David Letterman's chat show. He said, "Can I tell you something that I'm really not supposed to say? I think my wife, who's watching this, is gonna be p**sed at me... We are gonna have a third member of the family, I'd like to announce right now. The wife is preggers and we've narrowed it down to me, so I'm excited. She said not to say anything until the end of the first trimester but I think that's pessimistic." And Harrelson, already the father to two little girls, insists he's not concerned about the sex of his youngest offspring, adding, "I hear boys are a lot of work and these girls have been working out like gangbusters. So either way I'm happy." »

33 mil love last episode of 'Raymond'

17 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Holy finale! Nearly 33 million fans turned out Monday to watch the Barone clan squeeze themselves around the kitchen table one last time in the swan-song episode of CBS' Everybody Loves Raymond. The 9 p.m. series finale of CBS' Raymond brought in the highest ratings of the series' nine-season run with an average of 32.9 million viewers and an 11.2 rating/26 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. That also amounted to CBS' largest audience on a Monday since 1994. As series finales go, the 1983 signoff of M*A*S*H still holds the all-time record with an average of 105 million viewers. NBC's Cheers exited in 1993 with 80.3 million viewers; this time last year, NBC's Friends bid farewell after 10 seasons with more than 52 million viewers for an hourlong episode. Raymond's coattails sent its 9:30 p.m. companion Two and a Half Men (24.2 million, 8.1/18) soaring to its best-ever numbers. The Raymond finale halo was powerful enough to carry CBS' The Late Show With David Letterman, whose guests included Raymond star Ray Romano, to its third-highest rated telecast of the season and an easy victory against NBC's The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (4.5/11). Late Show averaged a 5.5 household rating/13 share in Nielsen's 56 overnight markets, compared with Tonight Show's 4.5/11. »

Isaacs, Levine become HIPsters

6 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Veteran comedy writer-producers David Isaacs and Ken Levine have inked a premium two-script deal with HBO Independent Prods. Under the pact, which stems from Isaacs and Levine's existing relationship with HIP head Tracy Katsky, the two will pen a comedy project for Fox to star award-winning British-Iranian comedian Omid Djalili and will develop a half-hour project for HBO. Isaacs and Levine, who have written for such influential TV series as M*A*S*H, Cheers, Frasier and The Simpsons, first worked with Katsky in 2003 when the duo penned and executive produced the 20th Century Fox TV/Imagine TV comedy pilot The Snobs for Fox, where Katsky was head of comedy. »

O'Donnell Blasts Alley

18 March 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former U.S. chat show queen Rosie O'Donnell is waging a fat war on Kirstie Alley after claiming the former Cheers beauty is much heavier than the 210 pounds she claims to weigh. The Flintstones actress admires Alley for poking fun at her inflated size in new U.S. TV comedy Fat Actress, but O'Donnell wants the Look Who's Talking star to be more honest. O'Donnell says, "I am telling you right now, I'm 218 pounds - Kirstie Alley is not 210. She's a lying sack of s**t. At least tell the truth. She's gotta be like 248 (pounds)." »

Alley Upsets Bulimics on New Show

9 March 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kirstie Alley has been attacked by members of the world's leading eating disorders group for joking about "life-threatening diseases" like bulimia on her new comedy show Fat Actress. Officials at America's National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) are furious with the former Cheers star for trivializing binge-eating disorders during the debut of her new program, which aired in the US on Monday night. In one scene, which has upset NEDA's chiefs, co-star Kelly Preston tells Alley's character, which is loosely based on herself, that making herself sick after every meal is one way of losing weight - a practice commonly used by bulimics. NEDA Chief Executive Officer Lynn Grefe says, "My guess is that Kirstie Alley's concept for the show was born from her frustrations with the unreasonable standards found in the entertainment industry, frustrations that NEDA understands because it is that unrealistic standard that often triggers an eating disorder. However, there is nothing funny about eating disorders, and to make comedic references to anorexia, bulimia or binge-eating disorder is dangerous. Nearly 10 million women and one million men suffer from anorexia or bulimia and it is estimated that another 25 million suffer from binge-eating disorders." »

'Tonight' spikes with Carson tribute

26 January 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno scored to near-record ratings Monday with its tribute to the man who made the show a national institution during his 30-year run as host. Tonight Show delivered an 11.2 rating/26 share in Nielsen Media Research's 56 overnight metered markets, which represent about 70% of U.S. TV households, with an episode devoted to the legacy of Johnny Carson, who died Sunday at age 79. The Carson tribute episode -- which featured Ed McMahon, who was Carson's longtime sidekick, and frequent Carson-era guests Don Rickles, Bob Newhart and Drew Carey as well as singer k.d. lang -- ranks fourth on the list of most-watched Tonight Show episodes since Leno took over host duty in May 1992. The only Leno-era Tonight Show episodes to draw a larger audience were the May 20, 1993, edition that followed the Cheers finale, which brought in an 18.5 household rating; the May 25, 1992, premiere of Leno as host (13.8 household rating); and the May 14, 1998, episode that followed the Seinfeld finale (12.4 household rating). CBS' Late Show With David Letterman is in reruns this week. »
