In an open letter to the actress, the Times television critic asks the question which might be on the minds of many television viewers. Read here in The Los Angeles Times.

"But it's not a good idea. Not a good idea at all. You've always been entertaining, funny and profane and people may tune into "Kirstie Alley’s Big Life” thinking it will be reassuring to watch a celebrity struggling with the same issues of over-indulgence and sloth that plague us all. But times they have a'changed since you made “Fat Actress,” when everyone thought it was cool that you weren't afraid to play an insecure, self-involved, overly-catered-to celebrity."
