Wichita native Kirstie Alley reunites with some of her former co-stars from “Cheers” for a new ad for weight-loss company Jenny Craig.
Alley, who turns 65 on Jan. 12, may be best known for her role as Rebecca Howe in the 1980s classic sitcom set in a Boston bar. Alley’s other TV shows include “Veronica’s Closet” and “Fat Actress.” She also was a contestant on “Dancing With The Stars.” Her movie credits include “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” and “Look Who’s Talking.”
The Wichita Southeast High graduate was a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig in 2004 and lost weight. She left several years later, but re-signed with Jenny Craig in 2014.
John Ratzenberger and George Wendt joined Alley in the commercial.
She told “Today” show host Matt Lauer on Tuesday: “I feel really good. ... I’ve managed to keep the weight off and, that’s a good thing.”
