Kirstie Alley is Facing A Lawsuit, Plaintiff Claims False Advertising Misled Her

Actress Kirstie Alley has gained and lost hundreds of pounds in her life, often resorting to wacky plans. She famously shed weight with the help of Jenny Craig, serving as the spokesperson for that company before gaining the weight back and getting dropped. In March, Alley joined the cast of the reality/competition show, Dancing with the Stars for season 12 but also announced her own plans to develop a weight loss system based on her prior experiences. That program, called Organic Liaison, is now at the center of a class action lawsuit.

Organic Liaison, a program that includes a natural diet supplement, online diet and exercise support and other tools has been the main topic that Alley has been talking about in interviews as well as on her official web site, her personal blog and on appearances, including shopping networks.Alley's claims during those appearances include that the products allowed her to lose weight without feeling hungry or suffering. But, it is those very claims that might be causing her problems now.

Nearly everyone knows that diet and exercise are key to lasting weight loss and that there is absolutely no "magic pill" to speed weight loss along. But, plaintiff Maria Abramyan, who admits that she knows those very concepts, has filed suit against Alley as well as the company and its management. Abramyan asserts that not only did Alley not lose her reported one hundred pounds via her company or its supplements but that the company used deceptive photos and other marketing tricks to boost sales.The woman claims that it was actually the combination of the grueling hours of practice for Dancing With the Stars and a very strict, low calorie diet that helped Alley finally shed the weight. Documents reveal that Alley started the weight loss program as well as the dancing show within a month of each other.

Abramyan reportedly tried the weight loss plan, including the nutritional supplements but said that she had zero success with the program. Her suit also called those supplements nothing more than a regular fiber and calcium supplement that could be purchased anywhere else.

Online, support for Alley is loud and growing, with most people saying that Abramyan knew that she might not have success but still made the purchase on her own. So far, Alley has been relatively quiet on the topic, with only one tweet on her Twitter account which only referred to the case in a roundabout manner.

Poor Kirstie...I watched her gain and lose, gain and lose then gain again for years. Anyone following someone who apparently isn't experiencing lasting success with weight loss shouldn't complain when it doesn't work. I wouldn't follow Oprah on that either...she yo-yo's too yet professes to know how to lose weight as well. Buying their books and following their plans seems like an act of desperation, grasping at straws. Eat right, exercise, and drink plenty of water...There, that's a good diet plan! Problem solved...lol

This woman actually said those same words, as if she were some kind of expert on the topic but STILL she bought the product, still used it and then with no surprise at all, failed to lose any weight. And then she sued. She should be kicked. In fact, I will chase this woman for three miles every day and if I catch her (I will) I get to pound on her just a little bit (with boxing gloves). Hey, we both get our exercise for the day!

Yeah...I hate it when people try to blame others for their own stupidity especially the ones who sue to make a buck off it. Kinda reminds me of the lady who spilled her hot coffee on herself then sued because the coffee burned her. Honestly, I'm right on your six with that!
