Kirstie Alley, the American actress and Dancing With The Stars contestant, has lost '38 inches' from her dress size during her time on this year's show. Kirstie Alley heads into tonight's Dancing With The Stars final in third place on the leader-board, but she has been regarded as the most entertaining dancer throughout season 12, reports the Associated Press.
The costume that Alley wore for her 'Dancing' debut had to be taken in by 38 inches to enable the actress to wear it again for tonight's closing performances. Alley is scheduled to reprise her opening-night 'cha-cha' in the original costume. The 60-year-old 'Cheers' star has become noticeably thinner throughout this year's competition, but she remained tight-lipped as to the exact amount of weight she has lost, saying, "There will be some reveal of that at some point, but I really didn't care. As long as I kept changing and changing and changing, I really didn't care. It was like, keep whittling, whittling, whittling". Alley's costume designer Randall Christensen said the dancer's outfits had gotten progressively smaller, saying, "We are constantly taking in and altering Kirstie's costumes. Isn't she looking incredible?".
Back in March 2010, Kirstie Alley launched her own reality show 'Kirstie Alley's Big Life', which documented the actress' attempts to lose weight. She is also responsible for launching 'Organic Liaison', the first Usda certified organic weight loss product.
