Seems they didn't bother to bury their corporate listings to far under their double chin. They lead back to Clearwater, Florida, Scientology's Mecca City.
Also, connections through her Advisory Board lead to other Scientology front groups, such as, Artists for Human Rights and Youth For Human Rights International.
Some Anons also noted that the backdrop to their marketing Testimonials seems to be none other than the Ft. Harrison Hotel, Scientology's flagship building of the Flag Land Base, also in Clearwater.
The parallels between Alley's "Release Me" and Hubbard's "Cal-Mag" concoction, a formula used in the Purification Rundown and Narconon (front group for Scientology), are creepily similar.
From About.com on weight loss scams:
"...Doctors, dieticians, and other experts agree that the best way to lose weight is to eat fewer calories and increase your physical activity so you burn more energy.A few bloggers and press release boards have already picked up on this scoop from WWP, namely: fadedyouthblog.com, clodvantam.blogspot.com, ecorazzi.com, perezhilton.com, Rant/Rave, celebitchy.com, The Macho Response, semajblogeater.blogspot.com, Softpedia, examiner.com and Zimbio.com. Word around the water-cooler is, some bigger gossip blogs are picking up the story later this week. Should be fun.
A reasonable goal is to lose about 1 lb. a week. For most people, that means cutting about 500 calories a day from your diet, eating a variety of nutritious foods, and exercising regularly.
When it comes to evaluating claims for weight loss products, the FTC recommends a healthy portion of skepticism. Before you spend money on products that promise fast and easy results, weigh the claims carefully..."
Update: Kirstie Alley's Fat Farm Freak Out
womansday.ninemsn.com.au ~ The star's bizarre antics at a health spa have some worried that she's lost her grip on reality. Jackie Brygel reports.
With her eating out of control again, Kirstie Alley checked into a ritzy California fat farm. But according to fellow guests, the 90kg-plus actress made a mockery of the facility's strict rules on dieting and exercise.
The former Cheers star, who famously shed 34kg on the Jenny Craig plan, only to put it all back on — and more — didn't get off to the best start at the $9000-a-week spa. When she discovered she couldn't squeeze into the spa's workout gear, she was in no mood to exercise.
"Kirstie was the heaviest of the 21 women there," a spa insider told the US magazine National Enquirer.
"The facility provides their guests with grey sweatpants, grey shorts, grey T-shirts and other workout gear, but poor Kirstie was too big for the complimentary clothes and stuck out like a sore thumb as she lumbered around in black sweats and oversized shirts."
While guests are expected to adhere to a daily diet of 5000kJ, it seems Kirstie had other ideas. She did everything from trying to order desserts from the privacy of her room, to flirting with the kitchen staff in an attempt to obtain larger meal portions.
"When fish tacos were served for lunch one day, Kirstie complained she didn't like the way the food was cooked. But she ate it and then went back to ask for more," says the source.
"Another time, she flirted with the chef because she wanted two servings of lasagna. He just laughed and said no.
"Kirstie was caught whispering to the chef about the desserts she had ordered to her room, while other guests looked on in horror." [ Read the full story in Woman's Day (on sale February 28, 2010) ]
