alleyAlley appears on the cover of People after gaining 83 pounds. Alley explains how she gained all the weight and what she plans on doing to lose it.

About 8 to 10 months after ending Jenny Craig, I had definitely succumbed. By then I was distraught. You loathe yourself. You hate what you’ve done to yourself. The first time I got really fat, it was a very different ride. I was having fun, baking cookies and spending a lot of time in Maine being supermom. That was not this occasion. This time I would say it had a darker side. Because there was a lot of self-hatred that was magnified because I’d let so many people down. All I thought was, ‘I’ve let all these people down and I’m humiliated’.
