The initial report came from the Daily Mail, who actually peg Alley as saying that she's a size 6! The beautiful actress has been shaking her tail feather with the sexy Maks Chmerkovskiy, and she does look absolutely amazing... but a size 6? No way. While she does maintain that she's lost 60 pounds (not just from dancing), there is absolutely no way that she's wearing the same size as Jessica Simpson.
If you have ever seen Alley in Look Who's Talking, you probably would believe that she was a size 6 there (or maybe even a 4), but there's no way that her body is squashing in to that now. Don't think for one minute that she doesn't look fantastic, but why is she (or the media) lying about her weight? Everyone can see her... and if you read the comments on almost every article about this, you'll see that not one person is fooled.
