Kirstie Alley - Kirstie Alley Ordered To Modify Labels On Diet Products

Actress Kirstie Alley has been ordered to modify her diet plan's advertising campaign after a U.S. judge ruled ads were misleading.

Marina Abramyan filed a lawsuit against the former Cheers star's Organic Liaison company last year (12) over allegations she purchased weightloss items which did little to help her shed the pounds, as promised.

The unhappy customer also accused Alley of misleading the public by claiming she whipped her body into shape with the pricey products, even though much of her slim down has been credited to her stint on U.S. reality show Dancing With the Stars.

Both parties finally reached a settlement at the Los Angeles Superior Court in March (13) and under the terms of the agreement, the actress has promised to remove the term "Proven Products" from the packaging, as well as issue a disclaimer on the brand's website that it is a "calorie-based weight-loss product."

According to bosses at the National Enquirer, who obtained a copy of the legal documents, the Tv star must also pay Abramyan and her attorneys $130,000 (Gbp83,871).
