Kristy laughs at herself at Hollywood's expense
8 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Being fat is something that has been taboo in Hollywood, as well as in fashion. Talk about an actor that has gained weight, and it will be the worst fate that happens to anyone in the movie industry.

Kristie Alley, is playing herself, and she's having a ball doing so. At least, it appears that way. If anyone could pull this off is Ms. Alley, who together with Brenda Hampton, has created this series for Showtime. It should be seen in network television as it brings down the myths about how being fat will be the end of a film or television career.

Enter Kristie Alley. She is one of the most natural and real persons in working in television these days. Sure, she has lost her figure, but is she a bad person for doing so? I don't think so. She's still the great fun person we met in movies and TV series where her uncanny knack for having a winning personality and telling it like it was, stole our hearts. We have a feeling what we see on the screen is pretty much like the real Kristie Alley.

The opening episode was good. The idea of being the ideal of a black man's fancy is carried out well. Ms. Alley and the cast played well together and we look forward to new installments to see what ensues in the life of this gorgeous woman.
