Kirstie Alley Loses Jenny Craig -- Gets Her Own Diet

Though weight-loss program Jenny Craig put actress Kirstie Alley back in the spotlight for a little while (remember her big bikini dance on Oprah?), Kirstie is hanging up on Jenny and launching her own diet program.

In a statement released to People, the actress revealed her plans to unveil her personally developed weight-loss program in 2009. "I want to create something new that will help millions of people end the seemingly never ending fatty-roller coaster ride," the former JC spokeswoman said. Kirstie did give props to Jenny, saying that her time with them was "extraordinary," but she is ready to hand over the reigns to the new faces of the brand, Valerie Bertinelli and Queen Latifah.

So, what will Kirstie's new program offer the world? "I'm confident that I can create something exciting and innovative," she said. "Something that if all goes well, will help change a fat America back into a fit America and will offer this country the healthiest, yummiest, easiest and most effective weight-loss program on the market."

Healthy, yummy, easy and effective? I'll call Kirstie right now.
