The show will chronicle Alley's progress in her weight loss program and her experience as a single mother raising teenagers in Hollywood. And all glamorously lit -- Alley is done up in perfect makeup, and though she may be big, her bouffant is certainly bigger!

True to the formula of celebrity-centric reality shows, Alley has not one but two assistants. In the sneak peak the first, Kelly, describes Alley as "very eccentric" over clips of the star banging on a drum set and dancing with a bouquet of flowers. "Then we have Kyle -- he taught me Twitter!" Alley exclaims of the "assistant's apprentice." Kyle bears more than a little resemblance to another similarly-spectacled assistant, Brad from 'The Rachel Zoe Project,' but seems less uptight given his admiration of Alley's pet lemurs.

Also appearing on the show are Alley's children from her marriage to former teen idol Parker Stevenson -- son True, 17, and daughter Lillie, 15. True seems to be into musician, spotted throughout the preview with a guitar, and we suspect it's his drums Alley's banging on. There is also Jim, mysteriously referred to as Alley's "chubby buddy." Does that mean they're dating, or just losing weight together, or is he just there to do the caterpillar and look funny because he's chubby?

Her children appear strikingly sweet and down-to-earth, telling their mom they've never been embarrassed by her weight, and don't even think she's fat. Hollywood may not agree, but Kirstie Alley is taking the entertainment world by storm anyway, and we're happy to watch her do so!
