The Battle of the Bulge: Rosie
Kirstie Alley managed to
turn her battle with her weight into TV gold,
but now the "Fat Actress" is in a war
with Rosie O'Donnell. The former talk show host
is fuming about America's newest diet queen and
only "Extra" knows why.

benefit Monday in New York, just like she did
on "Extra" after Kirstie went public
about her poundage. "At least tell the truth,"

And weight watcher Rosie is refusing to give up
her Kirstie campaign easily. She's actually posted

is very brave and bold, should admit that she
is not 210 because the fatties of America know,"
