Kirstie Alley's "Big Life" is to debut on A&E Sunday March 21, 2010. That's Tonight as I post this blog. Will I watch? You Bet! Kristie was my Girl way back when I discovered her on Cheers! replacing Shelly Long for seasons 6 through 11. Ah those were the days... "Where Everybody Knows Your Name".
According to In Entertainment: "The first two episodes, which air back to back tonight, will follow Kirstie as she tries to train herself with a workout regime. However, self-training proves to be difficult, so Alley and her staff then look to hire a personal trainer to help."
Below is part of the review by Kelly West of Kristie Alley's "Big Life", Which is nice to see a nice size review rather that those one or two lines that you so often see... and they call those "articles" it it more likely to be called "teasers". Nothing to see certainly no meat and potatoes, Thanks Kelly.
While the Showtime series "Fat Actress", which starred Kirstie Alley, was loosely based on her life, Kirstie Alley’s Big Life is based on her actual life.
The new A&E reality series takes us into her home and her world as we get to see her as a mother, an actress and a woman hoping to get into shape.
Kirstie Alley’s "Big Life" begins with Alley introducing herself, her family and the people who work for her. We also dive right into the crux of the matter and what is definitely going to be a major theme in this new series. Kirstie Alley is overweight, and not just by Hollywood standards. Her weight issue hasn’t gone unnoticed by the media, which means she’s often hounded by the paparazzi not only when she’s out with her kids but also at her home. Photographers looking to get the next “Look how big she’s gotten” photo eagerly await an appearance by her. We not only see that, but we also witness the moment where Alley and her family discover a photo taken of her in her yard, on the cover of a tabloid magazine. It’s not easy being overweight in this country, but imagine having a sea of photographers camped outside your house waiting to take a picture of you and have it published.
The first two episodes follow Alley as she attempts to train herself with a workout regimen, alongside her “chubby buddy” Jim (a guy who works for her and also has a weight issue). Self-training proves difficult and in episode two, she and her staff (assistants Kelly and Kyle) look to hire a personal trainer. Minor drama ensues when new assistant Kyle is caught sleeping on the job. The rest of the episode features the trainer interviews and the start of Alley’s new exercise regimen.
For me, the mark of a good celebrity series comes....(See Kelly West's article for more...)
Kristie Alley you will always have a loyal follower right here.
The Wiccan Rede
Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.
