Actress and current Dancing With The Stars contestant Kirstie Alley is making the rounds to publicize her new memoir The Art Of Men, and given the title, it’s not exactly surprising her love life is generating the most headlines. Apparently, she snuck two affairs with A-list Hollywood actors under everyone’s noses. The first was with Patrick Swayze while the two worked on the miniseries North and South, and the second was with John Travolta on the set of Look Who’s Talking.
Speaking to Barbara Walters in an interview with ABC, the actress said neither of the affairs progressed beyond kissing, but she seriously considered giving it a go with each long-term. With Swayze, she was apparently in talks with him to divorce their spouses but ultimately felt too bad for his wife. With Travolta, she apparently still considers him the love of her life but opted to go the friends route, though don’t take that as evidence of his alleged homosexuality. If Alley is to be believed, he’s straight as an arrow…
“I know John. With all my heart and soul, he’s not gay. I think it’s some weird way, in Hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they’re not out doing drugs and they’re not womanizing, what do you say about them?”
Alley feels healthier and better about herself since she shed seventy pounds on Dancing With The Stars last year. She’s currently competing in the show’s all-star season alongside many returning favorites. As for The Art Of Men, it was officially released yesterday and is available for purchase now.
