Kirstie Alley is being sued by an angry dieter, who has accused the former “Cheers” star of lying about how she lost 100 pounds.

Alley, who has fought a very public battle against the bulge, promotes a weight-loss product called Organic Liaison, which she claims helped her lose the fat rolls, E! Online reported.

Not true, says Marina Abramyan, who uses the product and has filed a class action lawsuit against Alley and Organic Liaison for “false and misleading advertising.”

Abramyan claims Alley lost the weight through vigorous exercise on “Dancing With The Stars” last year and a strict diet.

In other words, Alley danced her butt off.

Alley's claims of becoming a “size 6 and still counting” were not the result of taking diet supplements, but rather the result of an "above average exercise regimen and extremely low calorie diet,” Abramyan said, according to a document purported to be a copy of the lawsuit filed in a Californian court on Friday.

TMZ said Abramyan claims Organic Liaison is nothing more than a “bunch of calcium and fiber which is not a proven weight-loss product.”

Abramyan is seeking unspecified damages.
