Kirstie Alley On John Travolta Gay Rumours: "People Think That's The Biggest Insult"

Kirstie Alley, having admitted to falling in love with John Travolta, has issued a scathing response to the rumours that he's gay in an interview with ABC News reporter, Barbara Walters. 

"I know John. With all my heart and soul, he's not gay," she explained. "I think it's some weird way, in Hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they're not out doing drugs and they're not womanizing, what do you say about them? I think that people think that's the supreme insult: 'he's gay'" Well she was pretty clear about that! She went on to describe Travolta as "the greatest love of [her] life," and said she fought off the impulse to "run off and marry" him. "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. But, in the end, she didn't "Because I feel like when you marry someone, you're supposed to work hard at it and you're supposed to make it work."

In the wide-ranging interview, Alley also spoke of her appearance on Dancing With The Stars, and explained how she felt "broken" and reluctant to be intimate before the show began. "When I gained weight the first time and then I lost the weight, I mean, that was OK. I gained it once, I lost it," she said. "And then I gained it again, and I thought, 'Oh, Lord, is this going to be the pattern of the rest of my life?' ... Maybe there were people who wanted to have sex with me, but I certainly didn't want to have sex with them in that condition."
