Class Claims Kirstie Alley Pitches Snake Oil
By Darryl Greer
LOS ANGELES (CN) - Kirstie Alley plugs bogus Organic Liaison weight-loss supplements with false claims that they helped her lose 100 lbs., but the products "are nothing more than run-of-the-mill fiber and calcium supplements," a class action claims in Superior Court.
Lead plaintiff Marina Abramyan sued Organic Liaison LLC, Organic Liaison Management and Kirstie Alley, claiming they use deceptive before-and-after pictures of the former "Cheers" star to push their ineffective drugs.
"Ms. Alley's weight loss is not due to the Organic Liaison Program, but rather, is the result of an above average exercise regimen and extremely low calorie diet, including her time on the television program 'Dancing with the Stars' ('DWTS'), where she spent five to seven hours a day exercising as part of the competition," the complaint states.
