Kirstie Alley confronts Letterman over fat jokes

David Letterman used Kirstie Alley’s recent “Dancing with the Stars” stint to get some laughs on his show, but the “fat actress” wasn’t going to let it slide. While visiting the “Late Show” last night, Kirstie called Dave out for calling her fat.

“I feel a little estranged from you,” Alley shared on the show. “I thought you loved me madly, but then you would talk about me being sort of… chub.” Dave offered an apology, admitting, “I did make jokes about the weight.”

But it wasn't about to end at that - Kirstie came prepared to read Dave’s jokes, including this zinger: “Kirstie Alley joining ‘Dancing with the Stars’… if you don’t already own one now might be the time to get a wide-screen TV.” Ouch!

“We do love you,” Letterman explained, saying he thought he had the actress’s approval for weight-related jokes. “If you were skinny, we’d tell jokes about you being skinny… well, probably not.”

    Grow up people ! Can you imagine how hard it is to famous, and have all these pretty young girls throwing themselves at Jon? Its gotta be tempting. It doesn't matter how much you love your wife, fame messes with your head.I'm a fan of the show, and I hope for the best. They should take a break from the spotlight and get back to reality.

    If you're happy with the way you are, it's nobody elses business. I've never met you yet I love you.
    Love yourself..and others will love you, too. If you want to lose weight, lose it for yourself, not
    because someone else says you have to. Do it because YOU want to. Letterman's a jerk for
    saying things like he did. Just wait; someday he will be six feet tall.....sideways.

  5. Why do some have to be mean

    Kirstie, GOOD FOR YOU!!! I commend you for putting that idiot Letterman in his place, making him apologize to you on camera, and in front of millions of viewers! Letterman has NO room to judge, that dude has been butt ugly his entire life. He has messed up teeth, ugly face, and stupid looking smile. WHAT A NERD!! You could've always told him Kirstie, "I may have trouble with my weight but I can lose it...you're ugly, always have been and you can't fix ugly!!". Letterman, much like that jerk George Lopez, is a loser, not funny at all, has zero respect for his peers & especially women. Since when did it become funny to make fun of women and their weight??? Listen Kirstie, I read that your Mother was killed by a drunk driver when you were just 20 yrs old, your father almost died in that car accident too, you've had a tough life so don't you let any of these idiots get you down. Keep holding your head high!! Know you have fans and people like me who admire you for your acting abilities & sense of humor!! You're a beautiful woman on the inside/outside. Ignorant, mean people haven't figured out the fact that a person's weight or if they carry weight does NOT define who that person is. NO, when someone is heavy it doesn't define who they are as a person. Anyone who thinks it does, well, you're just ignorant and incredibly shallow.
    It may be 2011 but I'm under the impression that men are still supposed to behave like gentleman, men treat women with respect, men don't talk badly about a woman's looks or weight especially in public, and men never, ever make fun of women if they carry weight. The only men I know of that behave or talk badly about or around women are men that were raised without manners, cavemen who drag their women around by their hair, and men from the south who have a name that starts with "R and ends with "S". Now there's another breed of folks that deserve a whole thread dedicated to themselves!! LOL But seriously, most of them treat their SO/spouses/gf's like crap and expect to be catered to all the while their women don't mean squat to them. They treat their women like doormats, PIGS! Letterman must be from the south and a "R....K" because he's a PIG too!!

    Being fat is a choice. If it hurts your feelings to be called fat, here's a thought, don't get fat. And don't give me any BS about genes, heredity and disposition. Fat is a choice. It directly relates to the amount and type of food you put in your mouth. No one ever got fat eating nothing but celery and lettuce.

      @ QM or Quite Measly....Well now, that's a new one and I've never heard that before. "being fat is a choice"....LMAO!!! OMG! You're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, are you Quite Menial?? Do you honestly and truly think that people who are obese CHOOSE to be that way, really?? Ignorant, simply ignorant. Dimwit, no one would ever wake up one day, say to themselves "Heyyy, think I'll choose to be fat from now on because I'm so sick of being thin!!". GAWD!! Do your homework Quite Minibrain, many, many people who are obese are that way because of genes, a medical problem, or some other reason. Not everyone that is obese is that way from overeating, not exercising, and refusing to live a better or healthier lifestyle. Many people ARE obese because of those things, yes. Again, educate yourself and quit portraying yourself as totally ignorant! Fat is NOT a choice! Do you even know how stupid that sounds?? No? Well stop and read what you typed, then you'll see how absolutely stupid that is. Education is your best friend, Quite Meager!

      By the way....genes = heredity...LOL!! AND...saying people get fat because of their "disposition"??? Ummm, that doesn't even make ANY sense at all, LOL! Dang, you ARE dumb! For real!!

    I agree with Snarky. She is fat. Hel! so am I. But I don't give a snit (no cursing) if someone calls me fat. People try to use it to hurt others. If YOU allow them to hurt you in that manner, than you'll always be hurt.

    @ AJ.. Being PC is what has this world in the state it's in now. Why sugar-coat things. Why not just say what you mean and mean what you say. I call 'em as I see them too. If I see a chick that looks like a dude, don't get mad 'cause I call you a man. EVERYBODY in the US seems to be all about their feelings, but when it comes to others' feelings, they don't count. This is why i treat everyone the same. I spit the truth with no sugar-coating. Don't ask me if this outfit make you look fat unless you really really want the truth. Seems people would rather you lie to them to make them feel good than to tell them the truth and deal with it.

    Other people's mis-fortunes, trials and tribulations have been a staple for late-night talk show, (and beyond), jokes. I guess though it's not fair to accuse regular people of being "politically incorrect" with jokes/comments/observations whether they be true or not. So why souldn't comedians be held to the same standard? You can't hide behind being a comedian and say it's only a joke. It may be funny but if it's true, it's hurtful. Jamie Foxx made a real rude and un-true remark about Miley Cyrus a couple years ago and that really made me think less of him. He has a daughter about the same age and I gurantee he would not like anyone saying the same about her. Although he did apologize it was half-hearted at best and stood behind, "it was a joke".

    If you don't want to be called fat then don't be fat. Unless it's a medical condition, fat is a choice one can be called out on because it is extremely unhealthy and wrong. Unlike your looks which you are born with, fat is avoidable and treatable. But to be just too damn lazy to appreciate this gift from nature with respect and admiration is unspeakable. I don't mean to hurt your feelings.. well, yes I do. You gonna do something about it? If you can get up off the couch and walk 10 paces without fainting. Really, it's your own fault.

    Look 1st of all these are ALL comedians and know they are going to be laced into when something in their life goes bad. I GUARANTEE that sometime in Kirsti's career she has done fat jokes and been part of a skit that included making fun of someone else being fat. Now that the shoe is on the other foot or hoof in her case (eat it Kirstie no one but you is the cause). How can all you idiots defend someone who had a show called "FAT ACTRESS"? She gets it but you don't. She does all this complaining about jokes to stay relevent and on the air. You're talking about her again go figure SUCKERS!

      Who's they? As a Fashion and Beauty photographer you couldn't be farther from the truth. Thats why you see covers of magazines with pictures of people they try to make look perfect . "THEY" don't set the bar. The fashion industry does.
      Try putting putting out a magazine that is beauty relavent with "in the eye of the beholder" looking people and you will be filing for chapter 11 in 3 months. Thats something people say to make people feel better when they are visually challenged. Of course there are people that don't need to judged by their looks and are warm and cuddly and the type you want to be around but thats not the beauty their talking about. Its a nice thought though!

    Let's see, you'll take the money to be on a show called "Fat Actress" that is about you being fat because you are fat, but it is not OK for Letterman to say you are fat??? Wake up and smell the donuts, you are fat, Kirstie! You want people to stop telling fat jokes about you? Lose weight & keep it off- Letterman did when he needed to get healthy or die. PS- too much plumping up crap in your lips- now they are silly fat & ugly too.

    I get so sick of fat people whining- fat is a choice just like smoking crack or cigarettes, shooting heroin, drinking a bottle of Jack Daniels every day and so on. Yeah, I am about 30 pounds overweight and I got that way cause I ate too much of the wrong foods and sat on my fat ass & didn't exercise. Yeah, fat jokes hurt, but if they annoy you, lose weight. I got tired of being fat & losing my health, so I have lost 10 pounds so far with a new healthy lifestyle that will get me back to a healthy weight. Dave is rude & obnoxious sometimes, but he gave up booze & cigarettes and lost weight & has kept it off- so he deserves respect for that.

    Last words of wisdom to the crybabies in here. Grow some thicker skin. If someone calls you a name, ignore it. Who the F cares what they think, particularly if they're being "rude". But always remember, only YOU can decide if being called a name actually bothers you. If you get pushed all out of shape from "fat" which is like the oldest insult in the book, just try to remember, sticks and stones. Words do NOT hurt you unless you let them.

    To all of you who say being called fat hurts, here's a little advice from one fatty to another. Accept that you are fat. If you are responsible for any of that fat, own up to it in your own mind. Do what you can safely do to lose what you can (I know it's a battle in which a complete and lasting victory is not always possible). If someone is so rude as to call you names or say nasty things about you simply because you are overweight remember that you know you are fat and that everyone who sees you knows you are fat, but realize that it is not until the person who makes a rude comment opens his/her mouth that the world knows he/she is stupid, rude and obnoxious. Remember also that it is quite possible that you can lose some weight but that stupid (and possible rude and obnoxious) are lifelong conditions.

      Why "accept" that you are fat? Why not change your eating habits and exercise? It's so pathetic when fat people try to rationalize their weight. It's not very complicated; stop eating like a pig and get into a regular exercise routine. Fat people are disgusting. It's the first thing we notice and we judge you on that. When I see a fat person I think, "lazy and stupid."

      JPX–Either you didn't read the rest of my post or you misunderstood the part where I advised that fat people try to lose weight safely. The reason I suggested they accept that they are fat is that a lot of fat people are in denial about how fat they are, especially when they are putting on those early pounds. Of course fat people should try to lose weight. While most people probably gain weight because of poor dietary choices or lack of exercise or a combination of both, not all fat people are lazy or stupid. I'm fat. I gained most of my excess weight when I went from having a very active outdoors lifestyle to working 15 hour days in a managerial office job with four hours of commute added to that. While I ate moderately and mostly healthfully, the sudden decrease in outdoors activity caused by my long hours resulted in my initial weight gain. There was not a lot I could do about it as the rest of my time was needed for sleep and running errands and doing chores on the weekend. When I first retired, I gained some additional weight for which there is no excuse. I was simply enjoying having some leisure time for the first time in years and I was not careful about what I ate. That was stupid of me. I'm working off that weight now and it is not easy. If I had it all to do over again, there is not much I could change to avoid the weight gain that followed when I was working the long hours. I would, however, have been more careful about what I ate when I first retired, and I would have been more rigorous about working out then as well. We all make mistakes, and that was one of the biggest I ever made. Well, live and learn.

    really, get bypass surgery like it is taking a pill? People die on the table, I have two women I know who had to be admitted to the psyche center because it caused problems to thier mind. In most cases it is learning to eat healthy and ignoring the advertising and recognising it as lies starts the road to recovery. I love the quote i knew from years ago,
    'the sytem makes criminals out of people then self-righteously comdems them for being criminals' We are bombarded with every food ad known to mankind, add additives to food to make it almost adictive then turn around and call people fat. If we had a culture that promoted healthy eating, I could somewhat understand, but our culture worships anerexic models and actresses, and wouldn't know a healthy physiche if it bit them.

    Rather than confront Letterman she should recognize that she is obese and she should work on it. She has already put the weight back on from DWTS. At this point Kirstie Alley is going to be remembered for being obese rather than a television star. What a pathetic legacy. I can't stand histrionic people.

    Kirstie dropped a ton of weight on DWTS this year; I hope she manages to stay healthy and keep it off this time. What bothers me the most about her is acting defensive about her past weight gains. During her six-year run on the last half of "Cheers" she progressively gained a small amount of weight, and that trend continued on "Veronica's Closet." Not every woman is meant to be a waif. Even if she continues to work out every single day and eats healthily, I doubt she'd ever be a tiny stick figure. As long as Kirstie has been in the business you'd think she'd have a thick skin to this sort of criticism. I mean, she made a joke about her weight-gain herself years ago when she did "Fat Actress."

    It s very disturbing to read some of the negative comments that have been posted about Kirstie. It's like you people have nothing better to do with your life except for talk down about other people. Not one for making assumptions but that does tell me you probably were teased when you were younger (or maybe still are), have low self-esteem, or were even a bully yourself. Everyone is so quick to hide behind the "FREE SPEECH" thing but when it is your own child, you or someone you care about that is at the other end of this, your tune would change dramatically. And before anyone says anything or calls me overweight. I weigh only 108 pounds and am in my late 20s, I've been this same weight since 9th grade (14 yrs old). And I'm a mother to 1 healthy gorgeous daughter. I've ALWAYS been small and was hated on and picked on for being small. I have a high metabolism that's it and plus I was/am a runner & athletic. But at any rate, Kirstie was not even complaining to David Letterman it was all in fun, here is the link to CBS vdeo of this on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rc8J6kiRZ2U clearly it was all in good fun. Kirstie Alley is a great actress, comedian, and person. No one deserves being talked about negatively. That is what's wrong with the human race and our society in particular... always have to be negative about something. Well all this negativity you're putting out is going to come right back to you. Kirstie and any other person you talk about doesn't have to worry or do anything about it because its already done. Awesome job Kirstie on DWTS... way to show those who are over 60 that they can do it too... making it all the way to 2nd place is something fantabulous! Be blessed all!

      "What I don't understand, is why do all these womean with ongoing weight struggles and unlimited resources, dont opt for gastric bybass surgery. Come on, get off the "poor me" wagon and do something about it."

      @ LIz....what "I" don't understand is why your spelling is so bad?? "All these women" and "unlimited resources", isn't this article about Kirstie Alley and not "all these women"??! As long as you bring up all these women, unlimited resources, and yadayadayada. Not every woman has several million in the bank or health insurance or health insurance to cover something so drastic as gastric bypass surgery. Do you read newpapers or watch the news?? I do and both regularly. It's been reported frequently some women with major weight problems cannot have gastric bypass because their health insurance doesn't cover it or they don't have health insurance.

      Look I'm an RN, I know about this & how it works not only from reading/watching the news. But because I have worked in doctors' offices and currently work in a hospital. I'm very tired of the rudeness, lack of understanding, nastiness, name calling, immaturity, and complete ignorance when it comes to people that are obese. Even people that aren't obese, people that are considered "chubby" are subject to all I listed above.

      Who do you "holier-than-thou" people think you are by calling obese people nasty names, saying how disgusting they are, acting like they are beneath you just because they carry weight, and behaving like bullies on a playground?? You're no better than a racist because you're discriminating against people who are obese. You show your ignorance by refusing to understand that some people who are obese truly do have a medical problem and that is why they cannot lose any weight. Do you think obese people like living that way if they cannot help it?? Sure there are some obese people who got that way from eating nothing but a poor diet, not taking care of themselves, and not exercising. However, many obese people do have real medical problems that cause weight gain and cause them to not be able to lose weight. Diabetes, Hypothroidism, are just a few medical problems. So before you predjudice and comepletely ignorant people go shooting your mouth off, maybe you should educate yourself and quit being so damn disgusting and judgemental.

      Obese people aren't the pigs......judgemental, predjudice, and rude people are the PIGS!

    I saw the show you people are talking about. I thought Kristi looked good, although she is still no slim thing, nor will she ever be. This is not a crime. I think she did well to quote Dave's comments, and I thought he did well in making an apololgy. In future I suggest that those posting critical comments about any aspect of anyone's appearance be required to also post a picture of themselves, including side and back views. No fair just posting a head shot.
    do you think this would change the tone of the discussion.?

    C'mon y'all, if Kirstie was really pis.sed at David she would not have done his show! She's a comedic actress & he's a comedic talkshow host (please, suspend different opinions for the moment :) ) & they poked a little sarcastic fun at the fat jokes he told about her! She was making fun of him too! It's called schmoozing & is an old Hollywood tradition! Alley is a pro in show biz, her show Fat Actress poked fun at fat,herself & bad eating habits! She can handle ol' Dave! Btw, she's been spotted kissing 2 dudes in their 20's on separate occasions, who seem not to care too much that she's fat & way older than them! You go girl!!

    Comedians get away with a lot of "stuff." It does hurt people to be made fun of, even, I suppose, movie stars. Nevertheless, Kirstie has been huge over time and while many love her for various reasons, she's still huge, and therefore ripe for comedians' jokes. Good for her, though, for even going on dancing with the stars and then losing weight too.

    Even if she takes jabs at herself it's still not right for others to make jokes about people that are overweight. If it is behind closed doors, ok. But, I would never to someone's face to disrespect them. Letterman may have been snide, but he is just a jerk sometimes I guess. She probably makes jokes about herself to laugh it off and not be so hard on herself as well. I am not overweight, I just care about the feelings of others...if I'm wrong for that, then let me burn in he!!

    Kirstie is a strong woman who has been called fat by the best of them. At times she addressed herself as fat and has even been able to laugh at her own short comings as well as find ways to profit from them. She is still beautiful at 60 and however, still manages to do a better job than most of us. Many men are still interested in dating her eve though she is 20 to 50 years older than most of her perspective suiters.

    I am glad Kirsie jumped Letterman. She should have made a few jokes about Letterman being a sorry piece of trash and his way of looking down at almost anyone on the planet like he is some kind of king or some beautiful person. Dave is ugly and his old lady dresses him funny. Kirstie is overweight but when she's in the grove she's a beautiful lady. We all lose it when we get past our prime. Letterman has no heart and has even made bad calls about his old lady. He has trashed Ms.Palin and Ms.Bauchman , who don't deserve his nasty opinions. He trashes Ms. Clinton and even Ms. Obama. He don't like women too much.( Kind of like all those middle eastern countries we give foreign aid. ) I haven't watched Letterman since he decided to trash so many people at the idea he was being funny. Being nasty to people and just being a jerk IS NOT funny to me. I don't watch Conan for the same reasons. He isn't funny at all either. I still watch Leno sometimes, he has a little piece of a heart.( He also loves vintage autos and Muscle cars and almost any curious machinery. J is a cool guy. Letterman and Conan wouldn't know funny if it ran over them.

      so, gastric bypass is the magic fix? the little wand that fixes the weight problem? guess again. do you know how many people will have a gastric bypass, last a while and then go right back to their bad habits, even if it causes them pain and nausea. eventually, they will stretch out their new, smaller stomach pouch and that means, tahhh dahhh...weight gain.

    I understand when you're in the public eye you have to accept the good with the bad but has anyone given a thought that Letterman and other so called comedians are adult version of bullys? If a 15 years old had said that about another student- "You're fat, go excercise or you're a cow" then we would be talking about how cruel it is to say such things. Having a tv show or a famous name doesn't make it ok to bully. This is one place younger people are getting the idea it's ok to be nasty and ugly to people.

  159. So simplistic

    Before you criticize/make fun of others regarding how they look, try some empathy. Being overweight is NOT always related to how much you eat. Kirsty is 60 years old and has gone through menopause. Some women once they go through menopause gain weight especially if they have a hysterectomy early in life which stops hormone production. There are a host of reasons some people are over-weight that have nothing to do with the amount of food they eat. Don't be so judgmental!! You certainly are not perfect!
