The Today show ran a clip Tuesday suggesting Kirstie Alley's new weight loss plan, called Organic Liaison, is a front for Scientology, and Kirstie got so angry she almost let an expletive fly live on network television.
"Well it's such bullshi...can I say that?" she asked.
"No you can not!" said Meredith Viera.
Several of the executives of Organic Liason, including Kirstie, are Scientologists. Meredith asked her if the Church shares any of the company's profits.
"No, they don't. I'm way too cheap to do that," she said.
After the show, Kirstie took to Twitter to vent more:
