Everything You Need to Know About Parker Stevenson and Bob Alley, Kirstie Alley's Two Husbands
In the course of her public life and career, "Cheers" actress Kirstie Alley married twice.
Many people are curious about the life behind the camera of Kirstie Alley, one of the most adored actors on both the small and big screens, who passed away on December 5.
She also had her fair share of ups and downs in her personal life, despite the fact that her time in Hollywood was the stuff that icons are made of.
Here is everything you need to know about her two most significant relationships, one of which dated back to high school.
On December 22, 1983, Kirstie wed Parker Stevenson, a fellow actor who is now 70.
Although their marriage ended in 1997, they adopted two children from the Hardy Boys star after a rumored miscarriage, Lillie, 28, and William [who goes by True], 30.
When William had his own son in 2016, the former couple became grandparents.
Her "greatest love," according to The Hollywood Reporter, was her film co-star John Travolta, though she kept it a secret for the sake of her marriage while promoting her book The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente).
According to her comments at the time, which were reported by The Huffington Post, "Believe me, it took everything ...
...that I had, inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John — and be with John for the rest of my life."
She said, "We didn't have an affair.
But once more, I believe that what I did was worse. In my opinion, when a married person falls in love, both their marriage and your own are put in jeopardy, which is a double negative.
In part, they stated in an official social media statement, "She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with ...
...great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of life and whatever adventures lie ahead."
She was a legendary actress who was also a wonderful mother and grandmother.
I didn't have sex, but at the time she said, "I think it was worse when you fall in love with someone else, when you're with someone, and you're plotting and planning."
It took me a long time [to forgive myself] because I was a terrible person and I destroyed my marriage. However, what I did with Jake was kiss him, and in my world, in Kirstie's world, that meant I had to get a divorce.
