Kirstie Alley To Star In New ABC Comedy

| Filed under: TV NewsKirstie Alley

Kirstie Manzani

Kirstie Alley is coming back!

ABC is finalizing the deals for The Manzanis, which is described as the new Roseanne.

Alley will play the opinionated wife and mother who has to move to an uptight, country club town.

Originally developed two years ago, ABC finally agreed to bring it aboard as long as Alley could star.

After being such a hot ticket on Dancing With the Stars, it's no wonder ABC wanted to score her.

Good for her! She'll do great on a scripted show.

    I love Kirstie's wackiness and self-deprecating humor … looking forward to seeing her show!

    What r her boobs doin here?….She is so sexy….and hilarious!

    She's 20+ years older than Roseanne was when Roseanne brought her show on air, she lacks the talent that's in Roseanne's pinky toe, and the only thing they have in common is being calorically challenged.

    Who's going to watch scientology's trainwreck in a knock off sitcom?

    Kirstie's only had 2 successful roles, as Gloria Steinem undercover as a Playboy Bunny and as Diane's successor on Cheers - she was young (relatively), scatter brained, funny and attractive — none of which translates to a 60-something foodaholic who can't even be honest with herself.

    Ugh. At least this is financial karma for ABC cancelling AMC and OLTL.

    A new comedy, eh?

    It's about an Evil Galactic $pace Alien Warlord named Xenu that captures soul beings in a $pace Vacuum Cleaner, brings them to Earth (then named TeeGeeAck), puts them in volcanoes and blows them all up with Hydrogen bombs.

    There's more to it. That's just a quick thumb nail sketch for the pilot.

    Subsequent episodes could have an obviously sociopathic Con Man that creates his own Evil $pace Alien Hypnotic Mind Control CULT set up to fleece the vulnerable out of everything they own and every ounch of their self-respect, dignity, hope and Life Force to boot.

    she is pretty funny. not sure if I believe she lost all that weight just by exercise. wouldn't be surprised if surgery was involved. at least she lost it. and she doesn't look a day over 58 !!!

    I didn't think Scientology (sic) let fatties stay…didn't Tom Cruise cure her yet?



  8. 8

    She was never funny and her whiny voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

    new show "i was fat now im back but still a old hack"

    actually i love her to be honest shes always been a survivor i would like to see her on 'survivor' im sure she would lose weight there.. shes a star. love her .jokes aside shes a good person



  10. 10

    Oy. I've had enough of her and her whining…



  11. 11

    concerned that the weight fluctuations will have a negative impact on her health
    hopefully she can stay at a healthy weight from now on even if is a bit on the heavier side compared to anorexic Hollywood
    that would be healthier for her body in the end than the gain/loss cycle is
    especially if she keeps herself active
