Cheers to you, Kirstie Alley!
The actress heads back to her name-making roots in Jenny Craig's latest commercial to celebrate maintaining her impressive 50-lb. weight loss! "Look who's back!" the actress hollers as she waltzes into the hit-show's discernible set to greet Cheers co-stars John Ratzenberger and George Wendt.
Kirstie slimmed down on Jenny Craig's diet plan and the funny lady is not one to remain hush hush on her ventures. "A moment can change your whole life with Jenny Craig" Kirstie says in the commercial. A tribute to the television hit that made her famous and a major 50-lb. weight loss turned lifestyle redux?! Those are some pretty big-time moments!
"Everybody knows her name," is right John Ratzenberger! And now, everybody can enjoy a little slice of Cheers magic back on their television boxes. Or, you know, laptop screens.
"When the Jenny Craig people asked me would I do this, I said, 'Well, yeah, but is the set gonna look real?' And they assured me the set was gonna look fantastic," Kirstie said on NBC's Today Tuesday. "When we walked on that set it was like a cross between The Twilight Zone and we were in a time machine, you know? But to see those guys sitting there, funny as ever—I'm sort of the straight man in the commercial, but that's OK! They get the jokes, and they should. But it was like we were right back in it. In fact, I thought, 'Why don't we just do this again? It would be fun.'"
Now that would be a feat worth toasting, too!
