Little Letter Tuesday

Too much for a Post-It Note, so today is a Little Letter for Tuesday.

Dear Kirstie Alley.

Fat Actress. Jenny Craig. Oprah. New show: Kirstie's Big Life. Why is it that, ever since you left Cheers, your career - your entire identity - revolves around the size of your butt? And we wonder why women are obsessed with their bodies. How about you focus on talent? Or intelligence? Or even your kick-ass hair, for God's sake. Please, get off the scale and move on.

Your friend,


  1. Amen amen amen!! THat's the smartest advice I've read in a long time!

  2. That is so true about Kirstie! Once a beautiful, glamorous actress, now she is just a punchline for someone's fat joke. That is some clever observation, Tam! Well done!

  3. LOL. Agree wholeheartedly. It's like she is apologizing to Hollywood for being a 'big' girl, when she just needs to own it and move on with her career...I will not be watching, however.....

  4. Wow, Oprah makes another hit :)

    So true... so funny.
