Here it is: time for another edition of the Yahoo: Who’s Trending Now? report. Inspired by Yahoo and brought to you simply so that you may know who or what is trending now in my little piece of the world. If you are just joining the party you may wish to know a bit of back story about my Yahoo trending now obsession; you may go here to find your answers.
Have no worries if you don’t wish to click, however; I will give you the gist and then we’ll get to just who has caught my attention this early morning. I love Yahoo. I love Yahoo’s Homepage; which has been my homepage since my first foray into internet surfing. Because it is my human nature to shy away from change and I am happy with my Yahoo homepage I see no reason to change it.
There is no need to justify this to you of course; I am merely hoping (if you are familiar with Yahoo) that you understand my little obsession so that we may move on. So yes, I love Yahoo, the homepage, and that much of it caters to my likes. Even though the trending now section does not appear to be specific to me, I love it too and at times feel a need to discover more about the #1 trending now topic at Yahoo. Without further delay:
Drum Roll Please:
Yahoo: Who’s Trending Now? September 25, 2010
#1 This Very Early Saturday Morning:
It appears that Kirstie Alley has once again lost a significant amount of weight. She is so excited about this weight loss that she took to Twitter to announce the reduced poundage and even included a sexy picture (more on that in a moment). You may read the entire story here.
Because Kirstie Alley has struggled often through the years with her weight (and I happen to admire the actress) I was intrigued enough by this recent headline to click further and was then pleasantly surprised to find a link to her Twitter picture as well.
Which is when things got weird. You may view the Twitter picture here. I am skeptical by nature and also somewhat naïve; however, after viewing this picture I was left wondering why Kirstie-posing with some very handsome Italian men-is the only one back-lit in this photo.
I am by no means a professional photographer and I do not wish any ill will toward the famous Cheers actress/turned reality maven. But the picture does make me wonder if this is simply another Hollywood façade. So unsure am I that I almost did not put pen to paper (fingers to keyboard) but I could not let this go.
Is this Twitter picture of Kirstie Alley real? Did she recently lose a bunch of weigh again? Is she in Italy with these gorgeous men and am I that clueless about camera angles and the like? The answer to all those questions could very well be yes. I leave that up to you, dear reader. As for me, I am still skeptical.
On the one hand I am thrilled if Kirstie Alley has lost this weight. Anyone who wishes to take control of his or her life and get healthy has a star rating in my book. On the other hand, so many things these days are not what they seem and this one (thing) seems just a bit off to me. Please feel free to let me know-in the comments section below-your thoughts.
TwitPic: Kirstie Alley
Please note: This author means no disrespect to Kirstie Alley or the photographer of this picture. Forgive me also for my skepticism and concern about the legitimacy of the photo. Call it (again) human nature: I just wish I could know for certain if what I’m viewing is truth. I imagine we all wonder that more often than not; sometimes we speak up and sometimes we do not.
Cheers! (No pun intended)
