Kirstie Alley says she had secret relationship with Patrick Swayze
For some reason, Kirstie Alley has decided to tell Entertainment Tonight she and North and South co-star Patrick Swayze had a thing going on during filming of the 1985 miniseries. They didn't cheat on their spouses in a physical sense, but they sure had an emotional connection, she said. From what we know about marriage, that's worse.
Alley said she propositioned Swayze, but he refused, making us wonder if it really was as intense as she implied. She did say she would never pursue another married man again after that. You know, because she was married to Parker Stevenson and Patrick was married to Lisa Niemi.
"Both of us were married. We did not have an affair. 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," she said.
She also notes she doesn't know if Niemi was aware she was that close with her husband. Well, good thing she went on TV in front of millions of people to clear things up for Swayze's widow. We wonder if she regrets asking Kirstie to speak at Patrick's funeral ...
