Show Summary

Fat Actress, a half-hour hybrid comedy/reality series, stars Emmy-Award winning actress Kirstie Alley, who plays a fictional version of herself: a successful television and movie star whose weight gain has become the subject of every tabloid imaginable as well as the blight of her existence as she tries to find work and true love in an unforgiving Hollywood.

Bravely willing to lampoon the image that has been mercilessly ridiculed over the past few years, Alley will give us a glimpse of the humor and the irony in her battle to lose weight and get back on television in a tough business that prefers the svelte figures seen on the most successful actresses of today.

This irreverent new series is generally unscripted, with each episode emanating from a story outline and the actors largely improvising the dialogue. The show's story-lines will be drawn from a heightened perception of Alley's real-life experiences, and some of Alley's friends have promised to appear as themselves in guest cameos to further blur the lines between truth and fiction.moreless

  • Awful

    0.5
    The worst series I have ever seen! Unfortunately, I can't give it a zero...
  • Yep Kirstie, youre still FAT!

    1.1
    Ok, here is this show that lasted 7 episodes about a washed up ex-Cheers alumni who lost alot of weight but is still fat.



    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    One of the odd things about this page was there is some goofball with a screen name of 20697360768197610848997749257662-maria4ubaby that is farking up the screen. WTF???



    Ok, back to Kirstie. Other than that talking baby movie she hasnt done much of anything. So why did ANYONE think it was a good idea to create a show around this erstwhile blimp? This idea is only slightly better than the horrific spectacle of Anna Nicole Smiths show which is why Im giving it a 1.1 rather than a 1.0. Well to sum up this awful creation - its basically another nail in the coffin of Western Civilization.moreless
  • Love it!

    Kirstie Alley is just the best! I love her to death! Too bad the show only had seven episodes, i would have loved to see more of it! Great guest stars, funny writing, I hope I'll see her in something new soon! Veronica's Closet was funny as hell and i was excited, when I heard she had something new coming out. I hoped for great characters like she had on Veronica's Closet and i am glad that i am able to say, that Fat Actress exceeded my expectations. There should be much much more shows like this on TV, because it is a great show to just watch and forget your worldly cares.moreless

  • Required taste

    7.0
    Really the only reason this show is on is its celebrity apperances, Ellen degeneras style humor, fat jokes, Kristie Alley and again fat jokes and dieting. I was like why? Kristie is an Emmy winning actress now even though that was almost a decade ago still it counts and why is she exploiting herself? Also *Spoiler* in one epsiode featuring her Leah Remini (King of Queens) and some other familiar face she tries this riducoulous diet where she thinks tiny as in tiny people, tiny voice and living in a frickin playhouse. Also she has the worst assistants one a struggling actor and another a mole face girl who can be seen on Best week Ever. Also they use steriotype such as Black men lick thick woman which is kinda true but is still not really something you say in public. For a six part series it was okay and help time past so overall if you have showtime and don't have a problem laughing to corny jokes watch it.moreless
