Girlfriend sure got around in the eighties and nineties, huh? What I want to know, though, is why she’s feeling the need to air all of this dirty laundry now—and about a man who’s not even around to defend himself?

Kirstie went and talked to Entertainment Tonight about her affair with Patrick Swayze during the filming of North and South, which was a TV miniseries that aired in and around 1985. To ET she said that despite the fact that they were both married during that time, they fell in love with one another, though they fought it hard. Kirstie said:

“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.”

You know what’s triply bad? That Patrick was married to Lisa Niemi, the lady he married in 1975 and stayed married to ’til he died in 2009, and that Kirstie is also friends with Niemi. Oh, wait, scratch that—she was friends with Lisa Niemi all the way up until Patrick’s funeral, at which Kirstie spoke at Lisa’s request. Kirstie claims that she doesn’t even know if Lisa had known about her friend’s relationship with her dead husband, which is just super, because now Lisa’s got to hear—through television, nonetheless—that her dear friend and her late husband had an emotional affair, which is sometimes worse than a physical affair, depending on who you ask.

Anyone else think that maybe Kirstie Alley should have just kept her big, fat mouth shut? Jeez.

  • I think Kirstie’s delusional and should shut the fuck up. I completely believe that Lisa and Patrick’s love was solid and enviable. They were just beautiful together.
    And Kirstie is just damn rude and insensitive and nuts.

  • She is pathetic, seeking attention this way, Patrick Swayze is dead and can’t tell us how he felt about her back in time. Why hurt his widow with information none of us need to know or have to believe. I’m considering the source, she sure has had a lot of unrequited loves(sex partners) in her past, according to her.

  • Karma is an evil bitch Kirstie. Backstabbing a friend is one thing but disrespecting the wife of someone you claimed to love and respect is another thing entirely. Sit your old everything-eating ass down and understand that you are no longer relevant.
