Kirstie Alley has been on the promotional tour for her new memoir in which she claims that she and her “North And South” co-star Patrick Swayze were in love. She also claimed that it took everything inside of her not to run away with John Travolta, as well. As a matter of fact, this book is littered with “should’ve, would’ve, could’ve” love stories. Narcissism, perhaps?
Apparently after claiming that she had an emotional affair of sorts with Patrick, his wife Lisa Niemi had something to say about it. Reportedly, she feels betrayed that her once close friend that she just wanted to let go and scream at Kirstie, “I hate you! Patrick never loved you! How could you do this to me?”
Lisa and Patrick were married for 34 years and he passed away in 2009 from pancreatic cancer. Since, she has just begun dating Albert DePrisco, but she is not happy about Kirstie’s claims regarding her former husband.
A source said, “Lisa has so many happy memories of her marriage to Patrick. Now, Kirstie has sullied those memories by trying to cash in on her friendship with him.”
In her memoir, Kirstie said that she and Patrick tried to “avoid going to that road”, but claimed that they couldn’t help falling in love with one another. She writes, “He exuded that anything was possible. The emotions and dialogue escalated daily. One night, toward the end of the shoot, I got fairly drunk, dirty-danced for hours and then succumbed. We made out with each other.”
They didn’t go all of the way according to Kirstie, but she did say that he “asked me one last time to divorce my husband and make a new life with him. He was very persuasive. The decision of whether to run off with him was torturous.”
Uh huh. Are you buying any of this?
