The tabloid press has hounded Kirstie Alley for years regarding her struggle with weight. Kirstie says it's led her to a new opportunity—her Showtime series, Fat Actress, where she portrays a character with experiences similar to her own.
Oprah: What does it mean to you to have your weight struggles in tabloids?
Kirstie: Well, I guess it means a new show!
Oprah: It's all good, because if somebody's writing about you, if you're interesting enough for a bunch of editors and some people to sit down at their computers and make up stories about you, it must be that something's going on that's good for you. Really.
Kirstie: I think it means you're hot!
