Tim Gunn blasts Kirstie Alley for “lying deceptive shell game of vanity sizing”


Last week, Kirstie Alley made her runway debut at NYFW, wearing some terrible blue ensemble. After disappearing for a little while (probably to get some kind of Xenu-audit, or whatever Scientologists do when they mysteriously disappear for weeks at a time), Kristie was BACK, with a vengeance. “Back” being some kind of code for Kristie’s continuing adventures in delusional numbers. I won’t even get into Kristie’s history of claiming nonsensical things about her size, because we’ve got a whole new interview to make fun of:

Kristie Alley has majorly slimmed down since her stint on the ABC show. “I’ve lost 100 pounds,” she told Entertainment Tonight in an interview that aired Tuesday.

“I feel like I’m back in my element,” the 60-year-old said. “I honestly didn’t even realize what I looked like.”

On Tuesday, Alley strutted her banging body on the Zang Toi catwalk in NYC. Clad in an elegant-yet-dramatic royal blue, rhinestone-adorned gown, she wowed the audience as she closed her designer pal’s Spring 2012 show.

“Before Dancing with the Stars, I bought these dresses from size 14 to 4,” she explained. “[They were] all the same dress, and I said, ‘You know what I really want? I really wanna be in this dress in a 4!’”

So does the actress — who says she is indeed now a size 4! — want to follow up her weight loss with a little nip and tuck? “I haven’t had plastic surgery but here’s the reason: People do plastic surgery to make you look younger,” she said. “I don’t think it makes you look younger. I like it can make you look weirder.”

Alley’s trim new physique might attract some more male suitors, but they should be prepared: she’s not looking for anything long term! “This is what I think about sex,” she said bluntly. “I think its fun to hookup every night for six months… Then it’s time to move on!”

100 pounds? But Kristie claimed she was a “stretchy size 8” when she began Dancing With the Stars, and now she’s maintaining that she went down to a size 4. A 100-pound weight loss does not equal a drop from a size 8 to a size 4. Plus, I don’t think she lost 100 pounds. I think she lost maybe 40 to fifty pounds, and went down from something like a size 18 to a 12. That’s what Tim Gunn thinks too (sort of), and he’s calling Kristie out for being insane:

When Kirstie Alley revealed in an Entertainment Tonight clip that she has lost 100 pounds since being on Dancing with the Stars and is down to a size 4, Tim Gunn raised a perfectly groomed, silver eyebrow.

In an interview with Tampa radio station 98.7 FM, the Project Runway star shed some light on the actress’ size claim saying, “There is a phenomenon out there right now that I call the lying deceptive shell game of vanity sizing. In fact a 4 is really a 6 or an 8.”

The chief creative director for Liz Claiborne explained his theory, which was based on an experiment he did at Parsons.

“We took a size 8 dress from 1980 one from 1990 and one from 2000 and compared them — the difference between them was two and a half inches in the waist alone!” said Gunn.

As for Alley’s true size, the fashion guru guesses that she’s between a size 8 and a 10.

“But she looks fabulous,” he added. “People are too size conscious.”

[From Us Weekly]

Okay, Tim was a lot nicer than most people about Kristie’s delusional sizing. Here’s the thing, though – I don’t think Kristie is being “fooled” by vanity sizing, meaning that the designers are to blame. I think she’s so crazy that her assistants probably sew in new labels to her size 12 or 14 clothes so that she can maintain this idea that she’s a “size 4”.

Lady Gaga Performs "You and I" on The View: Watch Now!

Lady Gaga appeared on The View Monday, one of the few cases where she struggles to get a word in edgewise or command everyone’s attention.

After partaking in the spirited, daily gab-fest with Whoopi, Sherri and Elisabeth, the 25-year-old pop superstar performed a rendition of “You and I.”

The music was relatively stripped down (for her), the fashion relatively tame (for her) and her body relatively covered up, but she did great …

Lady Gaga – You and I (Live on The View)

Excerpted Lady Gaga quotes from The View today …

On the tragic death of British singer Amy Winehouse: “The lesson was for the world to be kinder to the superstar.”

On her own past drug use: “I was so embarrassed. I don’t do any hard drugs anymore. I am a little part of the green club sometimes.”

On an FDA warning about hot dogs increasing the risk of colon cancer: “I think hot dogs are just jealous that cigarettes are more controversial.”

On Tim Gunn criticizing Hillary Clinton’s ‘mannish’ clothes: “He’s being a bully. I think Hillary Clinton has more important things to worry about than her hemline.”

Tim Gunn thinks pantsuit-clad Hillary Clinton is “confused about her gender”


Season Nine of Project Runway premieres tonight. Are you going to watch it? I’m not. After last season’s finale, I officially and publicly quit that bitch, and I’m sticking to my promise. Gretchen was a gigantic, knit granny-pantied bitch too far. So, as I’m preparing to steel myself from watching, my biggest concern was my withdrawal from Tim Gunn, Mr. Fabulous himself. I have a long record of adoring Tim Gunn, and usually I find him to be a wonderfully bitchy truth-teller. But I may need to boycott Mr. Gunn after this mess. Gunn was on George Lopez’s show on Tuesday night, and George and Tim both started in about Hillary Clinton’s style. Now, I’m not above some mockery of Hillary’s pantsuits (seriously, she loves pantsuits, didn’t you know?), nor am I above chuckling to myself over some regrettable hair decision by Hillary. What I can’t stand is when some light-hearted mockery (“Put down the scrunchie, Hills”) turns into something kind of gross and bullying.

Tim Gunn doesn’t think Hillary Clinton is making it work! In an appearance of Lopez Tonight that aired Tuesday, the fashion expert mocked the Secretary of State’s “Jersey Shore style.”

“Why must she dress that way?” the 57-year-old quipped. “I think she’s confused about her gender [with] all these big, baggy menswear tailored pantsuits.”

“No, I’m really serious,” he added. “[They’re] unflattering.”

When Lopez, 50, asked how the former New York senator could “hide her cankles,” Gunn said it was just a matter of adjusting her hemline. “Well, if her pants didn’t stop an inch above her ankle, she could hide the cankle!”

Gunn might not be a fan of the former First Lady’s choices in clothing, but he is impressed by her work in politics. “I have great respect for her intellect and her tenacity and for what she does four our country in her governmental role,” he said. “I just wish she could send a stronger message about American fashion.”

[From Us Weekly]

“I think she’s confused about her gender…”???? Seriously? You’re going there, Tim? Hillary is 63 years old and she’s been a pants-wearing public figure for most of her adult life. She likes pants. She likes pantsuits. She’s busy. She has a important job. She has more important things to do than look for cute outfits. Not every woman needs to give a crap about fashion. And besides that, can we all agree that whether it’s Shiloh Jolie-Pitt or Hillary Clinton, it’s really not cool to associate “wearing pants” with “gender identity confusion”? Some women just love pants. Badly played, Mr. Gunn.

By the way, if Hillary’s elbow wasn’t Team Aniston, I think it would be completely appropriate for Angelina Jolie to come out and defend Hillary’s Montenegro Style.
