Surreality TV's Next Big Hit?

Kirstie Alley's new tv series "Big Life" has premiered on A&E:

I watched it. The show was somewhat inneresting, mildly amusing, occasionally smirk-worthy... but really, the only thing I came away with after watching it was one important question...

In light of what I'll assume is a consistently hefty grocery budget, how on earth does a sporadically working actress have any money left over to pay for an assistant, a stylist and a handyman? And an apprentice assistant?

That's right, Kirstie Alley has an entire team behind her considerable behind. Meet them all here if you dare (care?)

It really does floor me that she has so many minions. Whatever. I do like to see people do well. So, let's consider this next photo of Kirstie Alley as the "before and after" photo to accompany her new TV show... left side represents premiere episode, right side equals finale.

Good luck, Kirstie - and may your new series be a lesson to everyone that it is never good to have something called "Fat Actress" as the most recognizable recent accomplishment on your resume. Or as the most recognizable recent reference point for those who remember your work before your weight issues outweighed your work.

P.S. Is it just me or is it weird that IMDb doesn't list "Big Life" as one of Kirstie Alley's projects?
