Featured on the cover of the latest issue of the National Enquirer are Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, Lisa Marie Presley and John Travolta — all for a story based around the Church of Scientology’s secret celebrity files.
As you may already know, former King of Queens actress Leah Remini left the controversial religion after being interrogated for years alongside her family. It began with a question as to the whereabouts of Scientology leader’s wife Shelly Miscavige.
A friend told The ENQUIRER that Leah fears retribution from the church, whose membership includes Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley.
Shortly after Leah quit, Kirstie tweeted: “I take a moment to experience the loss of a person who I thought was my friend…then I say f*** `em.”
Fortunately, Leah’s longtime pal Lisa Marie, 45, promises to be her port in the storm.
The ENQUIRER has all the details on how Lisa is saying she’s there to help Leah through her terror and a exclusive special investigation that reveals even more disturbing practices of the controversial church.
In addition, the magazine claims that Britney Spears has collapsed at the news that her ex-husband Kevin Federline has married his girlfriend Victoria Prince.
After reports surfaced stating that Kirstie Alley was furious at that her longtime friend Leah Remini for left the church of Scientology, she has taken to the Twitterverse to vent frustration.
“When faced w malicious gossip I take a moment to experience the loss of the person I thought was my friend… then I say f— em…” Alley, tweeted on Wednesday. This of course got many people thinking the statement was directed toward Remini herself.
“Don’t believe everything you read,” Alley warned in a series of statements denying the accusations.
Kirstie Alley is one of the most highly profiled follower of the religion and was said to have been in numerous meetings with church executives dealing with Reminis departure. Sources say that leaving the Church of Scientology means you have to basically go into a pseudo witness protection program with some defected members under constant surveillance. Katie Holmes was a victim of such tactics according to reports following her divorce from famous Scientologist Tom Cruise. These Former members suggest the need to “lay low” try to slowly pull away then change your address, job and even phone numbers in order to successfully unplug from the group.
“lying news outlets. I do NOT care what religion ANYONE is or isn’t. I respect religions & would fight for your freedom as well as mine.” Alley tweeted in an effort to stop the rumors of the rift between herself and Remini. Kirstie has used her Twitter page as an outlet for her personal catharsis and has recently gone as far as asking her followers sage advice on the subject.” Need ur opinion.IF there was a whopping lie about U floating around, would U make a statement or let it pass? I’d appreciate your views. :)” and the answers came flowing in. Alley is said to be digesting the advice for now. “I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, my colleagues, and from fans around the world,” she said quickly followed by “Don’t care much about my own reputation .I DO that people who R genuinely interested could know the truth..others won’t believe it anyway.”
Is there some kind of formal press release from her in the near future?
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?
On Tuesday night’s double elimination episode of “Dancing With The Stars”, not only did the audience votes claim Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd, but Kirstie Alley and her pro dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She was gracious upon her exit from the competition and afterward took to her official Twitter account to thank her many fans.
She tweeted, “Spoiler alert DWTS… I want to thank all of you who voted your hearts out!!!! I love you and I’m deeply touched by your support!! KIMMEL!!! And now we carry on!!! One ride comes to an end and the next one takes off..zero to sixty in a heartbeat ..all love to ALL of you!!!”
She re-tweeted this message from Chaz Bono: “@ChazBono: @kirstiealley and @MaksimC congratulations on an amazing #DWTS All-Stars. You guys were so much fun to watch every week. XXOOX”
Afterward, she gave us a hint on what’s to come for her finale dance. She added, “Good night my sweet friends!!!! See you at the finale doin some crazy assed dance !! Party on young lovers, party on!!! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”.
What did you think of Kirstie’s run on the show?
Kirstie Alley recently revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” that she and Patrick Swayze were in love with one another during the filming of their show “North And South” in 1985. In the same interview, she also referred to John Travolta as the love of her life and said that it took everything she had in her not to run away and marry him. Now, she’s diving deeper into the Patrick Swayze story, saying that he basically rejected her advances for sex.
She said, “It was just too much of an attraction. I will say that at the time Patrick was drinking a lot, Patrick’s been very public about that.”
In her book, “The Art Of Men”, she said that after a night of partying with the actor, she tried to pounce on him, but was rebuffed. She revealed that she told him, “I want to make love with you. I just don’t care anymore, let’s just do it.”
He responded, “No. Come on, you’re drunk. Kirstie, you don’t really want to do it. You’re not that kind of girl.”
She added, “I have no idea if Lisa knows anything about Patrick and I…I was probably the least of Lisa’s problems with Patrick.”
Kirstie Alley is currently promoting her new book, so of course she’s letting some old skeletons out of the closet. Just yesterday, Kirstie copped to falling in love with her “North And South” co-star Patrick Swayze. We weren’t even aware that she had an emotional affair of sorts with him. At least they didn’t go forth with a physical affair, right?
In that same interview, she also said that John Travolta was the love of her life and it took everything she had in her not to run off and marry him. Then, of course, she was hit with the “gay” backlash. Considering how many masseuses came out of the woodwork, we wouldn’t say that the rumors were exactly unfounded. Still, she is now defending John — because that’s what fellow Scientologists do for one another….no?
Kirstie sat down with Barbara Walters and when she asked about John, Kirstie said, “I know John with all my heart and soul; he’s not gay.”
She did offer up a theory as to why the rumors won’t go away. She said, “I think in 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?”
Yesterday, she said of John, “Believe me, it took everything I had inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John and be with John for the rest of my life. I feel like when you marry someone, you’re supposed to work hard at it and you’re supposed to make it work.”
At the time they knew each other, Kirstie was still married to Parker Stevenson, while John was single. She and Parker divorced in 1997, but John was already married to Kelly Preston as of 1991.
Kirstie Alley has revealed that during the filming of the show “North And South” back in 1985, she and her co-star Patrick Swayze fell in love!
During the show’s production, Kirstie was still married to Parker Stevenson, while Patrick was married to his long-time love Lisa Niemi. It’s a shocking revelation, really, but why come out with this information now?
In a new interview with “Entertainment Tonight”, she spoke of her special friendship with the late actor. She said that they fell in love with each other, but did not want to cheat on their significant others. She denies that any affair had taken place during their time working together.
She revealed that they were both married and they wanted to halt things from “going down that road”, but says that she couldn’t help her feelings. She said, “Both of us were married, but again, I think what I did was worse. Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you’re married, you jeopardize your own marriage and their marriage. It’s doubly bad.”
What do you think of Kirstie’s comments? Why do you think she is bringing this up now?
