Was Thom Felicia a good replacement for Kirstie Alley as Pier One`s spokesperson?

Yes Kirstie creeps me out.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/3/04 - 1:39:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't really care either way.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/10/04 - 8:26:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's just an attempt by the corporations to appeal to homosexuals, I think...
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/17/04 - 2:16:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know... I like both of them.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/18/04 - 7:49:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Shes getting kinda old.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/18/04 - 7:51:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Their both good.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/18/04 - 7:53:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Kirstie ads were really bad...
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 10:41:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 3:33:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hey I liked Kirstie Alley
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/10/04 - 8:42:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I liked Kirstie Alley...
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/10/04 - 8:43:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Anything would be an improvement.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/17/04 - 3:03:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
I miss Kirstie..."You look stressed, Sister Moon."
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 2/11/05 - 9:48:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I think I'd be far more likely to go for something Thom's advertising than something Kirstie's advertising.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 2/11/05 - 9:50:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
If Kirstie gets any fatter, they will be docking her at Pier 1.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/22/05 - 2:46:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's a wise move. Gay men work better than overweight women when it comes to selling things. Besides, she's got other things to advertise, like in that diet commercial where she's all like "Hey, you're fat too!"
She's totally benefitting from the extra pounds. I don't know what will happen if she becomes thin again though.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/22/05 - 2:47:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. Kirstie was good on Cheers, but I don't care for her much now.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/28/05 - 5:15:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's obvious they ditched her because she gained weight. She has her own show now. But it looks kind of lame. I don't like her anymore. She said in an interview that fat is really ugly, with no exceptions. She seemed too obsessed with getting thin. It irritated me.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/28/05 - 5:17:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
...she was heavy when she started doing the commercials--they ditched her because her commercials were stupid.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/6/05 - 11:48:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're both loud women, so I don't care.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/6/05 - 11:51:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
If she hadn't gained so much weight I would have said no to thom. But now that she is so ugly she needs to just go away and get some cellulite treatment, and than come back when she weighs around 120 again.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 3/7/05 - 12:04:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
You're a dumbass

Kirstie didn't weigh 120 even when she was on Cheers.

17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 10:03:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes! I can't stand Kirstie, she is so loud.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/26/05 - 10:16:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes. the lady scares me. shes looks like she would kill you and eat you if you met her in an ally...
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/8/07 - 10:15:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 2/8/07 - 10:41:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like Kirstie Alley better.
