Kirstie Alley is kind of like the yo-yo of celebrity weight loss. She’s up, she’s down, up, down — her weight could rise and fall at the drop of a hat. Alley has struggled to maintain her weight for years, which, to be fair, is a problem a lot of us are experiencing at the moment. However, most of us don’t feel the need to sue the “Cheers” alumni because the supplement she uses didn’t work for us. That’s just silly.
Marina Abramyan, who is obviously among those who want to lose pounds without doing any real work, is kind of irritated that Alley’s wonder supplement Organic Liaison didn’t cause her excess weight to magically disappear. Although Alley has said the pills helped her lose pounds — the key word being helped — Abramyan did not experience the same results. So, like many Americans who are irritated about one thing or another, she’s decided to sue poor Kirstie for engaging in a “healthy deception”.
According to the lawsuit, Marina claims that Alley’s weight loss was the “result of hours and hours of dancing every day for several months”. No kidding. Abramyan adds that she purchased and followed the Organic Liaison Weight Loss Program to the letter, only to discover that she weighed about the same as she did when she began. Poor thing.
To be fair, Organic Liaison does use before and after photos of Kirstie Alley from DWTS in their marketing campaign, but only someone lacking a lifetime’s worth of common sense would believe that a supplement could help you lose that much weight without a proper diet and a hell of a lot of exercise. Then again, I suppose that’s all the legal system is good for nowadays: helping folks feel less moronic about putting their faith and money into a miracle pill.
Organic Liaison and representatives from Kirstie Alley’s camp have not commented on the lawsuit as of this writing.
