Kirstie Alley tells Entertainment Tonight that she and Patrick Swayze fell in love during the taping of the miniseries North and South in 1985.
Judging by what happened to her body from 1985 to now, that's probably for the best.
Kirstie Alley reveals to Entertainment Tonight's Chris Jacobs intimate details about what she says was a powerful attraction and hidden relationship with North and South co-star, Patrick Swayze. Although both stars were married during filming of the mini-series, Alley tells Jacobs when she first saw Swayze, they had an intense attraction and she tried to avoid "going down that road" but they ultimately fell in love.
"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," said Alley.
Alley goes on to say that although she's friends with Patrick's wife, Lisa, who asked Alley to speak at Swayze's funeral, she is uncertain if Lisa is aware of their relationship.
