Kirstie Alley Talks about Past “Loves” Swayze and Travolta

Posted by on November 7, 2012 at 5:01 AM EST

Dancing with the Stars favorite Kirstie Alley has claimed she was once “in love” with Patrick Swayze, and that this happened in the 1980s when both she and the Dirty Dancing star were married – and not to each other!

Alley claims that although the “relationship” was not physical, the pair shared an intense emotional bond, forged when they were working on the 1980s Civil War show North and South.

Alley told Entertainment Tonight that they did “not have an affair”, but “what we did was worse. When you fall in love with someone and you’re both married, you put both marriages at risk and it’s doubly bad.”

Swayze was still married to his wife of 34 years, dancer Lisa Niemi, when he died in 2009, while Alley divorced former husband Parker Stevenson 15 years ago. Alley, who spoke at Swayze’s funeral, and Niemi stayed friends, although the actress she doesn’t know if the widow was aware of their “relationship”.

Intriguingly, the revelations come just days after twice-married, currently single Alley claimed that Look Who’s Talking co-star John Travolta was “the love of my life.”

So forgive us if we’re feeling a little confused! Dancing with the Stars continues though….
