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.”

Weeklies cheat sheet: J.Lo and a jilted bride

The music industry lost a huge star, Katie Holmes lost weight and Kristen Cavallari lost her fiance (and her dignity?).

Cavallari probably regrets that wedding dress photo shoot now that she and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler have called off their nuptials, but at least we can see what she might have looked like walking down the aisle in this week's Life & Style.

And, this just in: Katie Holmes is among the many celebrities who are too thin.

J.Lo appeared on multiple covers this week. Thanks to People, Life&Style, Us Weekly and OK!, we now know Lopez spent her birthday without Marc Anthony, she's been partying and she's plotting her revenge.

Oh, and did we mention Denise Richards regrets having her breasts done... each time, that is.

Until next week...

The Throwback: 'My So-Called Life' lives on... on Sundance

If you miss wearing plaid flannel (even in summer), and harbor an urge to scour your local beauty supply store for some crimson glow hair dye, you may want to check out reruns of "My So-Called Life" on Sundance Channel.

If you blinked during the 1994-1995 television season, you might have missed the ABC teen drama which lasted a mere 19 episodes and starred Claire Danes as 15-year-old Angela Chase and Jared Leto as the object of her affection - Jordan Catalano.

Jordan. Catalano. Two words. It was never just Jordan. This was just one of the quirks that made "MSCL" so great - there were so many things just for the fans. Remember Tino? You couldn't possibly remember Tino - lead singer of Frozen Embryos/Residue - because you never saw him. FULL POST

Did 'The Smurfs' miss the mark?

There are rumors that the film version of beloved '80s cartoon "Smurfs" is a dud, but it may be worse than anyone could have imagined.

“The Smurfs” managed to maintain a shocking 0 percent rating on film review site Rotten Tomatoes for the past week, just recently bumping up to a mere 20 percent.

Despite the talents of Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, George Lopez and Katy Perry, the negative reviews are rolling in. Critics are calling the live-action/animated flick a wreck.
