Kirstie Alley, Kim Kardashian, Bethenny Frankel: Ten Celebs Who Peddle Diet Products

E! Online reports that Fat Actress star Kirstie Alley is being sued in a class-action lawsuit. The lawsuit, filed on July 20 in Los Angeles Superior Court, by would-be dieter Marina Abramyan, who claims the diet supplements are bogus. Basically, the 28-page document states that Alley lost weight not by ingesting Organic Liaison, the magical elixir she touts (and owns a stake in) -- but because she rehearsed her ass off (literally and figuratively) while competing on Dancing With the Stars.

On the one hand, we wish we looked like celebs with toned abs and round butts. Then again -- how stupid do you have to be to believe that the miracle in a bottle they're endorsing is the reason for their weight loss -- and not the private chef and personal trainer they have on the payroll? Alley's not the only celeb who peddles the promise of a thinner you. So put down the doughnut and read our list. Don't you feel thinner already?

Weight Watchers

Jennifer Hudson for Weight Watchers
When Jennifer Hudson was

kicked off season three of American Idol, her career really took off.

She won an Academy Award for her role as Effie in Dreamgirls, played

Carrie Bradshaw's assistant in Sex and the City, and recorded two CDs.

The only thing left to do was lose weight. She became a spokesperson for

Weight Watchers and she sings about her weight loss -- making her

loss our gain.

Dr. Siegel's Cookie Diet

Snooki for Dr. Siegel's Cookie Diet
When Jersey

Shore meatball looked at herself in the mirror and saw... well... a

meatball staring back at her, she decided to go on a diet. Always one to

make a buck, she hooked up with South Florida-based Dr. Siegel's Cookie Diet.

How the diet works is simple. You eat them instead of anything else. At

$49.95 per box of cookies, we'd have to have a lucrative MTV deal to

stay on this diet.

Anna Nicole Smith for Trimspa
Trimspa Baby!

Anna Nicole turned up drunk, incoherent, and stumbling to most

promotional appearances -- but at least she looked great!

Wynonna.com

Wynonna Judd for Alli
Diet pill Alli went

all out when it hired the fiery singer as its spokesperson. There was a

tour bus, commercials, and an ad campaign. But there was also Wynonna

who didn't want to actually take the pills. Who could blame her?

According to Alli's website, the treatment side effects include "oily

spotting, loose stools, and more frequent stools that may be hard to

control."

Sylvester Stallone for Stallone's Lifechange Pudding
Yo!

Adrian! It's not about money. It's not about the car. It's not about

the fame. It's all about the pudding (yes... that's really the slogan).

Kim and the other Kardashians for Quick Trim
Kim and her sisters have been the spokesdivas for Quick Trim for years. Though they too have been slapped with lawsuits claiming that the cleanses didn't

give unsuspecting wannabees a flat stomach and a big donkey booty,

we're still holding out hope that this crap works... and that they all

lose so much weight they just disappear!

Gweneth Paltrow and the Goop Cleanse
The actress, mom, rock-star wife, singer, and blogger is now a cleanser. The Goop Cleanse,

sold on her blog along with $85 plain white T-shirts, costs about $400.

Apparently too-skinny actresses need something to throw their money

away on, after all.

Apollo Ohno for 8 Zone
When you're

a world-class skater, do you really need weight-loss supplements? Maybe

not, but the unsuspecting fans sitting at home watching you on TV might.

Skinnygirl

Bethenny Frankel for Skinnygirl
She

wasn't even a housewife when she first appeared on the Bravo franchise,

but Frankel has parlayed her reality-show celebrity into a line of Skinnygirl cocktails, wines, books, supplements, vitamins, and protein bars. That's a lot of cash for so few calories.
