Kirstie Alley has released her new book today 'The Art of Men', but seems that the book will be far less about the art of men, and far more about Alley's secret indiscretions with men. The biggest revelation which she has now also spoken to Entertainment Tonight about regards her brief romance with Patrick Swayze, that erupted while the worked together on the TV show, North and South.
"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. It's doubly bad... After Patrick, I made a decision that I was not ever going to involve myself with anyone married." But speaking about the beginning of the non-an-affair affair, reported in the NY Daily News she said "I could feel someone sort of looking at me and at first I didn't look. But then I leaned forward and it was Patrick and he had this big smile on his face. And I thought 'Do NOT go down this road.'"
This news comes out three years after the Dirty Dancing actor's death. His life-long wife, Lisa Niemi was apparently unaware of the relationship between Alley and Swayze- Alley was even asked by Niemi to speak at Swayze's funeral. However, if the news was ever going to arrive publicly, the year that Niemi finally begins to date someone new, is probably the best time for everyone.
