Kirstie Alley Launching Own Weight-Loss Company

Last Friday Jenny Craig and Kirstie Alley announced they had parted ways, although whose idea it was to part ways is unclear. Today Alley released a statement saying she has another money-making weight loss plan down the pipeline.

In fact, Alley, 57, hopes to "develop and pilot my own weight-loss brand that I hope to launch in 2009," she has announced in a statement.

The weight-loss field is wide open and not immune to new ideas and improved solutions for the fat problems that plague many of us Americans every day. I want to create something new that will help millions of people end the seemingly never ending fatty-roller coaster ride. I am especially passionate about seeing to it that our next generations are not struggling with the same weight issues that my generation has struggled with.

Her whole, lengthy statement is available on People.com.
