She got really fat, lost some weight and then put some back on again.
For those reasons alone, Kirstie Alley will star in a new reality show on A&E. The series will chronicle the actress' continual weight struggle, while also focusing on how she raises two teenagers alone.
With 10 episodes confirmed, the untitled reality show will air in 2010, Variety reports.
"Kirstie is exactly the kind of star A&E is drawn to," said an A&E executive. "Her personal life has been playing out in the media for years, but this will be the first time she'll be opening up her home to reveal her real life for the cameras."
Alley is a former Jenny Craig spokesperson.
According to the Variety article, she'll be "producing a feature film, patenting multiple inventions, working hard to raise two normal Hollywood teenagers, taking care of eight ringtail lemurs and, on top of everything, looking for love" on the series.
