‘Look Who’s Talking’ Kirstie Alley: ‘I Destroyed My First Marriage With A Kiss’. The actress also known for her role in ‘Cheers’ goes onto confess that she did cheat on her first husband, which did lead to the ended of their seven years of marriage.
The star is making the the revelation in her new memoirs The Art Of Men, telling that her maturity was very low when she first moved to California along with her childhood sweetheart Bob Alley that their marriage had no chance of surviving.
She tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight,
“I s**ewed up the relationship… I was sort of lost. I knew how worthless I was.
“We dated for four years before we were married and I was so immature… I stayed 16 through the whole marriage and when we moved to California I was flirting with guys on skateboards. I sort of went crazy… I was getting a lot of attention.”
When she fell in love with another man named Jake is when her marriage fell apart. She recalls,
”I always say that what I did was worse than cheating because when I met Jake, I didn’t have sex with Jake, but… I think it’s worse when you fall in love with someone else… and you’re plotting and planning.
“What I did do with Jake was I kissed him and in my world, in Kirstie world, that meant I had to get a divorce, because that was un-ethical and that was infidelity to me… I was a horrible person; I destroyed my marriage.”
Alley married for the first time back in 1971 at the age of sixteen and divorced in 1977.
