Besides the challenge of going from her current 230 pounds down to 145 pounds, Kirstie Alley has another concern, reports the Los Angeles Times.
That’s the fact that the second episode of her much hyped new show on A&E, "Kirstie Alley’s Big Life," reached only about 1.3 million viewers this past Sunday, March 28th.
Alley tells the Times that her new reality show, "Kirstie Alley’s Big Life,’ was the result of a failed project to create a weight loss show like "The Biggest Loser." But when she refused to kick off participants in a competition-style format, the top networks passed on the project, she says.
Instead, producers asked if she’d be willing to be subject of her own weight-loss program. She says she agreed because, "I hate being fat."
